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.

In this Moment

Hey you, right now I want you to think about something in your life that makes you happy. It could be anything. A hobby, a job, a food, a person. What is it? Once you know, dwell on it for a second. Now think about the last time you got to do it. Were you happy then?

Life is so short. It goes by quicker than we can imagine. The next time you're doing the thing you thought about, the one that makes you happy, put a smile on your face. Even if you've had the worst week of your life. You're getting to do something that makes you happy. Don't waste this moment. So many people would love to be doing the things you get to do, yet they can't. So even if you have to paste a fake smile on your face, don't forget just how lucky you are to be living the life you are living. To be reading, drawing, dancing, writing, or creating, or singing, or even walking, or breathing. Don't take those things for granted, even though it's so easy too. Things happen, your circumst…

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…
