Isn’t it kind of funny that one day it just clicks. One day you realize what truly matters in your life. All the negativity just doesn’t matter anymore. No one can touch your aura and the positive vibes you give off.
You learn who truly matters in your life and you tend to care less about what other people say or think about you.
You start to remember who far you have come and how much you have achieved in the process. The times in your life where you thought you would never make it out, you fought your way through. You became a warrior.
You start to remember how strong you truly are and realize your true worth. You fought hard to be the person you are today. So smile and be proud of yourself. 💜
Here is a little positive Friday reminder just before we all start our weekends!
You don’t have to be perfect. Just be yourself. It is hard enough just being ourselves at times so why pretend to be anyone else? People around you love you just the way you are. You are one of a kind so own it!
Not everyday will be a good day and that’s OK. Some days if all you did was get out of bed and breathe, is simply OK. Not everyday will pan out the way you planned but there is always another chance to try again. The sun will rise again, you will try again.
Small steps are also progress. You don’t have to keep up with everyone else around you. We are not in a race with others around you. As long as you take baby steps that is what matters most. Just keep swimming!
Asking for help is strength. You don’t have to go through things alone in life. Being open can be hard especially depending on the topic on hand. Trust me I get it, I’m not always an open book either but life gets easier when you ask for help when you feel like you’re drowning. Friends and family are there to help us all you have to do is simply ask.
People love and appreciate you. Let me say that one more time, people love and appreciate you. Anything and everything you do is appreciated by those around even if they don’t mention it. You are enough, always!
Happy Friday Everyone!
How often do we realize that we are just settling in life and living our day to day life simply as a routine? We have a tendency to only focus on work, work, and more work. Sometimes I think about how many people are actually settling in life. It’s probably more than I can count at any given time.
People settle into “okay” relationships because their comfortable.
“Okay” jobs because it simply pays the bills at the moment.
“Okay” friends because going out to meet anyone else will take too much effort.
“Okay” type of life because it’s simply what he or she is used to.
“Okay” seems to be the green zone, the comfortable area where no wanders past.
“Okay” seems to be where most people seem to settle and just stop living.
“Okay” is where we lose our passion to live, lose our sense of adventure, most importantly where we lose our sense of happiness. It is not where we find our purpose in life, where we have unforgettable moments, or go through life changing experiences.
So live life to the absolute fullest. Stop living along the shoreline and explore the open sea instead. Living another day is not a blessing everyone gets to have, cherish each and every day.
It’s time for an adventure!
One of the of the hardest things I have struggled with, is trusting the process in life. Like most people in this world we want everything now not later. We tend to want what others have or want what we want on our own timeline. When we don’t get what we want we tend to get unsatisfied with life and the blessings in it. It’s like a repeated trend that we do even when we don’t realize it.
So how do we just sit back and let the universe do the rest for us? I’m still trying to figure this part out! But this is what I have figured out so far.
Embrace the uncertainty. When things pop up in life when you didn’t expect them, embrace it. Do not fear the, do not give into the darkness of uncertainty. Explore it with an open mind and complete faith.
Enjoy the beauty of becoming you. Enjoy the ups and downs, the roller coaster ride of life. There is only one of you in life, that is your ultimate superpower in life. You are one of a kind, show it to the world.
Most importantly of all when nothing is certain, anything is possible. Unfortunately, there is no handbook on how to handle life itself. So think of everything as an open door. When a door closes one will always open. Do not knock down a door that is not for you.
Trust the process
A year ago I had someone ask me to look into the mirror and tell her 3 positive things about myself. Sadly, I had trouble coming up with 2 out of the 3. How can we be so positive about others yet have trouble doing the same for us? How can we love others but yet not truly love ourselves?
For me, I didn’t think I was worthy of anything positive. I still felt broken and useless to life around me. Self love was not in my vocabulary nor did I truly know what it meant.
It took a long time to fully break out of the dark shell and see the sun shining through. The process was slow as molasses on a cold winter day but it was truly a blessing when it happened.
I ask this of you today. Go to the mirror and say 3 positive things about yourself daily. Feel worthy of everything in your life and what is to come from the future.
Focus on all the positive things about yourself even if all you did was get up from bed and breathe. Be happy with small accomplishments.
Most importantly, love yourself.
No one will love you more than you love yourself, radiate it to others around you 💜
We all have learned in life that life can pass us by in an instant and that it can end at a moments notice. I learned this lesson when my step-mom passed away last October. We tend to be such in a hustle in life that we simply forget to just breathe. I feel as though when this happens God makes it a point to humble us and it’s not always in the way we want. A few months after she passed and as I continued to grieve, I started to break from the cycle of life. The never ending routine we all have.
I wanted to live the life she always wanted to and never had a chance to. See and experience life with her in my heart. Simply live life with as much happiness as she did. Knowing that it was ok to be happy without here in the physical form. It’s like experiencing life for the first time again without worry.
The hustle of life should never get in the way of experiencing the beautiful blessings around us. It should never take a loved one’s death to humble us again yet,sadly this is the case for most of us.
Being happy should not equal as inviting guilt in as well. Be happy. As long as you are happy nothing else matters. Simply take a moment and breathe. Take a moment to see life can be a rainbow after the storm as passed, the stars always shine brighter after it’s passed.
Be born from the ashes like a phoenix every day as you take another breath.
