Time for some motivation, y’all!
No, seriously, as any of you reading this, I’ve been through so many things in my life, I just wanted to share one of my most helpful ways of thinking with you, because it has really helped me along the road…
Life’s not about the things that happened to you, but the way you choose to handle these things.
Let’s face it, a lot of things are completely out of our hands. We’ve all been hurt at some point in our lives, just a little or more severely. There’s no way of trying to forget this or erase the pain, BUT in the end, you have a choice; you can either be a victim and let these burdens drag you down, or you can promise yourself to fight the bad that was ever inflicted on you, by standing up for yourself, by building up your confidence, by looking into the mirror and calling yourself beautiful. By choosing to taste the beauty in life and to not let anything from the past destroy your future.
I know I make it sound awfully easy, when it’s actually a very hard thing to do, but it’s an important distinction to make; to be the victim or to be the fighter. Every direction you take starts from this point.
Others might be the ones to break your heart, but you are the only one who can decide to let it heal again or to just let it be. Some of us never bother to pick up the pieces, although we feel them stinging in our chest, the pain numbing our brain. We start to believe this is permanent – but the thing is, it’s not. We can make our hearts whole again.
Yes, it will be a difficult, confronting process. But little by little, the pain will fade. The tears and memories pouring from your heart will make room for happiness and love to settle in. Believe me, I’ve been there!
I have come across so many beautiful, worthy people who were afraid to step into the light. There’s a lot of us sharing the same doubts, the same shame, the same pain. Let’s all stand up and do something about it. Promise yourself to make a change by starting today. Tomorrow will be the next step, then by next year, your heart might be glowing again.
Open your eyes to the beauty of the world! One thing I love to do is sit down at the end of the day, write down a list of things that made me smile that day and learn to appreciate these things. It’s amazing how aware you will feel of the thousands of wonderful things this world has to offer. Even in hurtful things, you can find something soothing. When someone calls you names, feel sorry for them for being such an ignorant person and be proud of yourself for being yourself. When someone hurts your feelings, turn everything you feel into creativity; write, paint, dance. Express yourself and never blame yourself. No one, absolutely no one, has the right to make you feel bad.
Good luck sweethearts, let’s all choose to live life to the fullest. It might be a bumpy ride, but in any case, it’s better to be out on the road than locked up inside your own mind.
