When I get upset, I shut down. I feel like I should be crying or screaming or something, but I can’t because I’m turned off. I go silent and don’t talk very much. I just sit there and think.
She has her days when she feels like breaking down
and crying until her eyes hurt because she feels like
everything is falling apart and there isn’t one thing she can do about.
Like she has no say whether or not her life goes well.
Life isn’t an easy ride.
There are ups and downs, twists and turns, but in the end,
she smiles and tells herself that it’s alright.
“Some people wear their smiles like a disguise. Those people who smile a lot, watch their eyes. I know cause I’m like that a lot. You think everything’s okay, and it is till it’s not.”
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? -Marianne Williamson
note to self.
“There is an inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything she puts her mind to. There is a beauty in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path, who isn’t thrown off by obstacles along the way. There is a beauty about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences - who knows she can fall, pick herself up, and go on.”
“Don’t dwell on the past. Your history can’t be erased, but your future has yet to be written. Make the most of what’s going to happen instead of worrying about what you can’t change. Don’t waste your time being sad, because you’re wasting away moments in which you could be happy. It’s taken me awhile, but i’m learning that letting go of the past is a good thing. It doesn’t mean forgetting, it just means moving on. And you can’t enjoy the present when you’re stuck in the past. Don’t cry for what might have been, don’t live in the past. It was supposed to be forever? Well forever doesn’t always lasts. Lift your head and dry your tears, forget about yesterday. We had the time of our life, but we must move on. Let it fade away.”
…and most of all BE HAPPY AGAIN. Find out what makes you happy. It might be hard and you might think it’s not possible; but nevertheless, I would like for you to try. The world is a better place when you smile. :)
…so today let’s fall in love with the person in the mirror, the one you see everyday but seldom truly look at, the one who gives more than they ever take. Today let’s take nothing, not this day, not this moment, not this chance, not even ourselves, for granted.
Let’s first love who we are.
