Not Changed, Just Better

This past weekend I was able to attend an amazing convention where I learned so much more about myself. I came back home a better person. I felt recharged and amazing. I called myself "a changed person" but as the words came out of my mouth I realized, I wasn't "a changed person" from this weekend, I was just a better person from this weekend. A better version of me. I was still me, just better. I wasn't "someone new" or "changed" as we sometimes say when something happens to us that causes us to change the ways we think. I was still me. I will always be me. You will always be you. We're just improving, we're learning how to be the best version of ourselves. We're better. And we shouldn't try to be "someone new", "a different person" because, from my experience at least, it doesn't work. We can tell ourselves over and over that we are a "new person", and we can change the way we live but that doesn't change your soul or your brain or your heart. You are still you. You still have your body and your mind and that is never going to change. So the sooner you embrace all of who you are, the easier it will be to continue to improve who you are by bettering yourself. I like to call it Continuing to Better. Continuing to better things, to a better life, to better thoughts, to better relationships, to a better spirit. Embrace yourself for all that you are, the good and the bad. And know that you are beautiful. So beautiful. And continue to better yourself. Don't neglect yourself by forgetting to improve. You can always grow. Just don't forget to love yourself for where you are at right now.

Better yourself, don't change, you're already good enough. But you have so much more potential than you realize.

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…
