And Now I Do What's Best For me

Today I had to make a hard decision that affected me and my happiness. I had been thinking about it all week and I just felt like I had to do what I knew in my heart I needed.  I've been going through a lot recently. To explain a little of my life so as not to bore you, I am an actress and a dancer and a crazy theatre person. I've been doing theatre with my independent troupe for nine years now, i choreograph our musicals and I directed our fall play this year. I also did a ballet in the fall and today I was going to audition for our one-act ballet that my dance studio does in the spring but I, needless to say, had a breakdown and just couldn't do it. I need a break. I knew I had been pushed to my limit emotionally and physically. I couldn't do it. And so even though I knew I might regret it, I made the decision not to do it. I didn't make a brash, all of the sudden decision. This thought had been weighing on my mind all week. I knew what I had to do and I felt like a huge burden had been lifted off of my shoulders. We all get worn out sometimes, and frankly I'm just writing this post to tell you that IT IS OKAY. We are humans, and we are breakable and we get tired and we need rest. So if you have a burden laying on your shoulders as you read this, I want to encourage you to put it down, let it go. No one is perfect, if we were I wouldn't be writing this. Sometimes we just have to do what is best for us even if it's hard. And please, please, whoever you are reading this. Don't ever be too hard on yourself. We all have limits. Don't worry if you reach yours. It's okay.



  1. You are right. It is good to know that I am not the only one. You see, I have been going through a tough time too. A lot has been happening, and I feel suffocated at times, and feel as if I shall never see the light again. Your post has given be hope. So thank you. You are an angel.

    1. I feel so blessed that I could help encourage you. You have a wonderful purpose in life, don't forget that. You shall see the light again. <3

Everything You Need To Be Happy Is Inside You

Let's face it, at the end of the day, all you have is yourself. Yes, family is important, relationships are important, but at the end of the day, it's all you baby. Are you going to be happy? Or are you going to let people around you decide that for you? You are the person with the most power in your life. It's your choice to be happy. The things around you, the people around you don't get to decide who you are and what makes you happy or what makes your life good. You decide how you react to your circumstances. It's up to you. Your emotions don't have to be controlled by the things that happen to you. It's only when you react to the circumstances that they have power over your emotions. If you rely on your inner-self to be happy and not your circumstances, they won't have power over you. Stop thinking there's something wrong with you or that you are missing something. There's nothing wrong with you, and you are not missing anything. You already…

There's a Reason for Everything

It's hits me once and awhile, and i cherish these moments, why something happpened to me and what i learned from it. I realizse why i went through something, or why i did something even when i had no idea at the time why i should do that. I love it when my memorises come back to me. Something i haven't thought of since it happened and i didn't even know i had that memory.
 That's how i know everything happens for a reason, and that's how i can believe that. Becuase i know that someday in my future i will realize why today happened. I will discover the reason for today even though i might not see it right now. I will remember the choices i made today and learn from them and learn why i chose them, and ultimately learn more about myself. 
There is a reason for whatever it is that is in your life right now. You might be doing really well and so many things are good and like they're falling into place, or you might feel like everything is falling apart and like lif…

You're Not Invisible

I've felt invisible. I know someone reading this has felt it too. You feel like there are so many people around you but you're not seen by any of them. Their all oblivious of your presence. You're another face in the crowd.

But let me tell you, 
I See You. 
You are seen. You are acknowledged. Don't fall into that downward spiral of thinking that no one cares about you. Catch yourself before you fall. Sometimes we feel neglected when we really aren't. We're being dramatic. I know I sound insensitive but trust me I've been there too. I'm there right now as I write this. There are people all around me yet I feel like nobody cares. And then out of nowhere, someone talks to me or smiles at me and I realize I'm not invisible. I realize I am seen. 
Let me be that voice, that person that comes over to you right now and asks how you are doing. I see you and everyone else does too. You Matter and you have to believe that because I can tell you what I think o…
