Be at Peace with Yourself

There are too many days that I go through where my own mind exhausts me. Our brains are thinking machines, that's what they were made for of course. But what happens when we never stop the thinking? We get tired. It wears us down. Even machines need rests or else they break down. Shouldn't it be the same for our minds?

I heard it explained to me like this once, "Our brain is like a highway with constant ongoing traffic. Thoughts coming and going and coming and going." But see, unless we want to drive ourselves crazy (which is definitely not advised) we have to learn to silence the traffic sometimes. It's not easy at first if you've never really tried but some great practices to help teach yourself to silence your mind are meditation and/or yoga. They are simple exercises you can do to help ease your mind and encourage positivity. Also, diffusing essential oils is a wonderful way to ease your environment and your mind.

Now, I'm sure some of you have heard of these things before and thought "Well, maybe someday I'll try it" or "It probably doesn't really help that much". I've told myself things like that too but now here I am practicing yoga daily and using essential oils everywhere. It's completely up to you whether you try them or not, but things like this have made me personally a much better person and a person I am more proud to be.

Don't forget to give your mind a break. Even if it's as simple as sitting down for five or ten minutes each day and just giving your mind a break and breathing. That's good. Give yourself that time. And don't forget about it. Set alarms, reminders, put in on your calendar. Make it a habit. Maybe ever night, you sit down before you go to bed and take ten really deep breaths. Whatever it is for you, I encourage you to start doing something like the things I've mentioned if you aren't already. Especially if you've been feeling worn out or stressed or overwhelmed. Give your mind a break, be at peace with the chaos of your thoughts. Release thoughts that don't matter or that just don't need to be there. Consider only thinking about what truly matters. Don't let the cars on the highway distract you with their loud noises and pretty colors.

Smile, It will be okay.

Life's too short

In the words of my drivers' training instructor, "Life's too short, you know? Live a little. Life's too short."
And she's right, life is too short.
Don't waste it.
Don't be petty, don't have regrets, be nice to people, do good things, have fun, BE SPONTANEOUS! It's summer now! Live a little! Some of the most enjoyable things I have ever done were completely spontaneous and crazy!

Don't Take Life Too Seriously.

That should be on a t-shirt or a coffee mug or something.
My point is, Live Your Life. I cannot tell you how much it pains me to see people living without a cause, or without adventure, or they are letting go of their potential to be someone wonderful, and do wonderful things. Maybe simply because they were told by someone that "they can't" or "they aren't good enough to". But that's completely not true. YOU HAVE POTENTIAL. YOU ARE WONDERFUL. And you were made by God to do incredible things! You just ha…

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…
