Choose to Make it Amazing

I hope your day is so much more than you expected today! My hope for you is: you see silver lining in a bad moment, you feel crisp, clean air when you breathe deep, smiles from strangers, hugs from loved one and laughs that are belly deep! 🧡

Today is another day you have choices, choose to embrace all the good that it offers and make it amazing! 🧡🦋

Tell Them

You can never express too much appreciation or love for those who make you feel like the real authentic you is perfect just the way you are. 🧡

I’m talking about those people in your life who share your energy, laugh at jokes only you find funny, whose patience is never tested when you can’t make a decision, who believe your obsessions or quirks or outlandish ideas about life, love and the pursuit of happiness are what make you a person they want to spend time with and share their heart with, who somehow understand how you are feeling just by the tone of your voice, and who believe in you so much you have no choice but to believe in yourself. 🦋🧡

Those people are the ones that make your soul sing and those people are a gift. Tell them. Tell them how they fill your life with confidence and joy, and tell them how much they mean to you. Your words will not be unheard but cherished, and the feelings I’m sure will be shared.

I’m absolutely blessed to be gifted such people in my life and to all of you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for seeing me, and sharing this beautiful life with me. 🧡

Have an amazing day!

Keep Your Head Up

Every day is a learning experience, every day I continue to work on my confidence, self love and worth, and every day there are still challenges I believed I had conquered that I face that surprisingly hurt deep.

As difficult as those moments can be, they remind me of just how far I have come, how far of the mountain I have climbed, and that while I may have tripped, I’m still standing.

Our journeys through this life are ever evolving, and while we may get stuck or face a battle we thought we beat, we have to use these moments as reminders of how much we’ve grown, and just how far we’ve come so we can breath them in and breath them out, and then let them go and move forward toward our goals and live our truth.

There are going to be times where you think to yourself, “why?” and feel discouraged or even frustrated with yourself, but these are just speed bumps to remind us of the long road we have traveled, and that we still have so much more to see.

Keep your head up, your heart open and remember just how brave you are, how strong you’ve become and how much you have left to accomplish. You got this and so do I 😉🧡

Smile

A simple smile can change your pace, your mood or brighten the day of a stranger. Do not underestimate its power 🧡

Smile because you can, smile because there will be light again, and smile because it may be the one gesture that changes the heart of another. 🦋🧡

Smile and have a beautiful day!

Acknowledge the Beauty Around You

As we live our every day life, many times we walk with our heads down, determined to be undistracted and focused on plans for our own success. In this practice it’s common to “miss” things including the beauty that surrounds us. 🧡

While it is important to dream and to make steps toward these dreams, don’t forget to pick up your head and not only see the beauty in those around you, but the beauty within.

Remember to check in with yourself and remind yourself how incredible you are, that you are worth every amazing thing that life brings you, and that each challenge is helping you grow into who you are, and then go out and remind others of the same.

If you see their beauty, their success, their love, their generosity or their need to know just how wonderful they are, tell them.

They may not know it themselves, and just one small gesture, or one small word of encouragement from you may be the only one they hear, and may help them remember, not just that moment, not just that day but possibly their lifetime 🦋🧡

Choose Kindness, and tell someone how beautiful they are today!

Listen, Don’t Judge

Ironically one of my favorite things to do in this life is to meet new people. This is ironic because as a younger version of me I would have considered myself socially awkward, a complete introvert and even a wallflower of sorts. I liked to observe, not engage, mostly out of fear.

My fear stemmed from judgement from those around me, from what others would think of me, how I looked, what I did or if I opened my mouth and something silly came out, which happened often. I was afraid not of other people but the fabrication I had formulated in my own mind of what others felt about me.

As I grew I learned to accept myself as I am, silly, sometimes odd, but curious and full of love and respect for others and their stories. I also realized that the same judgement I feared, I projected many times in my life and when I become aware of this I changed it, and the way I thought about those I encountered every day. By opening my heart and mind, I opened my life up to meeting some incredible people. 🧡

Please don’t judge, but listen, no matter the environment in which you meet people, whether it be in a line at the grocery, at a community run, church, school, the neighborhood or even the bar. We are all imperfectly human, and if you judge before you listen, you may never have the privilege of knowing their story 🦋🧡

Have a beautiful day!
