Everyone goes through hell, but not everyone stays there. Stop tormenting yourself by reliving the pain over and over. Good people go through terrible things, but wise people know when and how to let it go. We all know that wisdom does not come easy, it often comes from painful experiences. Many of us are […]
You’ve heard of Murphy’s Law, which says that whatever can go wrong will go wrong. Well, there’s another law, which says that left to themselves, things have a tendency to go from bad to worse. When something is making you unhappy, for any reason, the situation will tend to get worse rather than better. So […]
I saw this quote and I had to share it with you… We all want to become better versions of ourselves, there are things we want to change but don’t knock where you are now or who you are now. Focus on accepting where you are and being happy and grateful for where you are […]
No, this isn’t to recommend an anti-aging cream. How many of us feel that we have lost some of ourselves as we have grown older? How many of us, as children, were afraid to grow up because we believed we would become less than we were? Afraid that we would become some sort of shadowed, […]
It’s interesting how at any age you can always reminisce about an earlier time in your life. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 16, 26, or 46, there will always be this faint recollection of a time when life seemed perfect. At the age of 26 many would say I’m still just a child… “you are just […]

Enjoy your own company. Let your mind wander among the stars. Try. Take chances. Make mistakes. Life can be messy and […]
It is not about what people call you, or what they think of you. It is only about what you answer to and how you view yourself.

Ask yourself: If I wasn’t already friends with them, would I want to make friends with them? Are […]
Negativity and Positivity can BOTH screw you over, just in different ways. If you are too negative, you will intimidate yourself out of trying things, get too hung up on past failures, and won’t be much fun to be around. If you are too positive, you will be overconfident, fail to anticipate how your plans […]
You have always been good enough. You have just been giving the best parts of you to the wrong people. Don’t forget that.
I was recently in a situation where the actions of another person where confusing, hurtful, and frustrating for me.
