“I Will Not Let You Win”

Remember those days when we couldn’t wait to be an adult? Well here we all are living the adult life and I’m wondering where the time has gone! Sometimes I wish things would slow down a bit. Everyone who knows me, knows that I always plan things at least 2 months ahead of time. The days and months are going by so quick. I’ve been thinking about life a lot. I’m someone who likes to have a plan and stick with it but that’s not how things work in life. It’s crazy how fast things can change. I would have never thought I’d be where I am today. I am happy with my job, myself, and life. I wouldn’t be the strong woman I am today without the help of many people. Thank you to the guys who lied and cheated on me. Thank you to the guys who always put me down and made me feel like I wasn’t good enough. Thank you to the people who used me. Thank you to the people who always put my goals and dreams down. Thank you to these people because you all are the reasons why I am a strong woman. You are the reason why I know how to choose who to keep in my life and who to trust wisely. I pushed myself everyday not only for my family and friends who have always supported me from the beginning. For the people who made me feel like I wasn’t worth, I will not let you win. Never let the negative people win. Always strive to do better and move forward, not backwards. We aren’t perfect and life can get rough trying to be a strong independent person. It’s okay to accept help from those you trust. It’s okay to scream at the top of your lungs. It’s okay to cry and let it all out but at the end of the day you have to pick yourself up and keep going. Life is physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting but things will only get better if you use the negatives to get you to the positives. Trust me; everything will be okay. Love yourself and make time for the people who deserve it. Good luck to the man who can actually break down my walls and get me to make time for you. 😂

Don’t Wait For The Change. Be The Change.

Wow I cannot believe that 2015 is almost coming to an end. What an amazing year it has been! Every year I continue to achieve more then I plan to. Which is a good thing. You should always set high standards to challenge yourself. What is life without a challenge right? I hope you all have great goals for the year of 2016. I know I will definitely be traveling a lot. I hope to blog more and maybe even start a Vlog. It is crazy how time flies and how things can change in a flash. I have been blessed with so many opportunities this year. Some that even gave me the chance to make a difference in the lives of others. I hope that I continue to motivate others. There is nothing better then showing people that you can make anything happen. Life is so much better when you are positive. I once was a negative person who cared too much about what others thought but as I got older I realized that you won’t get anything out of life that way. The people who are judging you aren’t the ones living your life or paying your bills. I couldn’t be happier with the decisions I’ve made these past few years. I know that I will continue to rise to the top. If i can, I know you can 🙂 Don’t stop until you make it to the top! I could not ask for better people in my life. So many people coming in and out, but I have the right ones right by my side being the best support ever. Here’s to the ones who have lost hope. Keep pushing yourself to do better everyday and if you have already achieved your goals. Set bigger and better ones. Never give up! Don’t forget to smile and be thankful that you get to see another day. Don’t wait for the Change. Be the Change. Happy Holidays!

“Focus On The Positive”

Smile

It is crazy how life works. You can’t predict the future. Everything can be great but it only takes one thing to make you feel like your whole life is falling apart. What really matters is your attitude and the way you handle life.  You never know what could happen tomorrow. Whether it’s good or bad I believe that everything happens for a reason and you should always stay positive. Every morning I wake up feeling thankful. Thankful that I get to wake up in a warm house. Blessed that I have a job and a car. Blessed with amazing friends and family. Sometimes all we think about is what we want and not what we have already. So when you’re having a bad day just stop and think about all the good things you have in life. Always appreciate the little things people do for you. Don’t forget to let the people you care about know that you love them. Take a minute to say hi to someone you walk by. You never know what that person is going through. Even a smile could make a difference in a stranger’s life. Let’s start spreading a positive energy. You can make a difference. Be the change.

Confidence Takes Practice

Sometimes you get a little discouraged seeing all these models who we think are “perfect”. There is no such thing as being  “perfect”. Everyone has flaws no matter what age, size or race you are. Without these flaws I would not be the person I am today. I have always been a girl  who never wore makeup and had a little more meat on her body then most. As I got older I realized that the more comfortable  you are with yourself the happier you will be. A few years ago I would have never worn shorts, tank tops, bathing suits or makeup. I slowly started to wear makeup even though I was not the best at it. As I continued to practice every day I started to get better. Most people always say that you do not need make up to be beautiful but that’s not why most woman wear it. It’s just like another escape for us ladies after a long day to sit in front of the mirror and practice different ways to apply makeup. It is exciting to see how much improvement you make as the years go by.  Makeup, clothes, and shoes are always our toys.  Nothing makes a woman happier then getting dolled up. Confidence takes practice. Love yourself before you can love anyone else. Flaunt what you were blessed with.

Life will always throw you curve balls. The way you let these curve balls affect your life shows what kind of person you are. If you’re unhappy then do something about it. The decisions you make in life should be for yourself. No one else can control your life or your happiness. Just because someone doesn’t agree with the decisions you make or support you doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do what’s best for you. Always listen to your heart because it always knows what’s right. People will come in and out of  your life but the ones who truly matter will always stay in your life. People will always have something to say about you whether it’s good or not. Who cares? People will be a lot happier if they didn’t care about what people have to say. What others have to say should never matter as long as you are happy and you are doing what’s best for you. Don’t stop until you make it to the top. Keep doing what you’re doing and worry about yourself. Be positive and positive things will come your way. The only way things will change in your life if you do something about it. Things don’t magically happen so be thankful for what you have and if you’re not happy then something needs to change. Happy Holidays 🙂
