So simple to say “if you want to be happy–be.”
How many of us for a long time didn’t know what that looked like though?
My hands up in the air!
I didn’t have a clue for the longest time what “being” looked like. I was on 100 percent react mode all of the time. I was too busy worrying about what other people were going to say about me if I was different. So I did my best to fit in.
I didn’t fit in so well though lol. We–after all–always end up being drawn to our own crowd. Truth is we are all different to different people. No one is the same to everyone. That’s the truth. Peace comes from finding acceptance on the inside though. It never really matters how much acceptance we get on the outside. If the inner self is incomplete the outer self never will be.
Courage grows where desire flows.
Sending all the positive vibes I possibly can to all of the positive minds of the world!! Keep standing out! Keep being you!

This is a beautiful message. I think being able to show emotion in this way is one of the most challenging and courageous acts a person can do.
From experience I can say that I used to think weeping/crying was a sign of weakness. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I’ve learned over time that it takes more strength to cry than it does to fight it. Especially as men sometimes this can be even more of a challenge for us. We’re expected to be the tough ones. Don’t mistake showing emotion for being weak though. It’s not the same thing.
The power and comfort of having someone you can open up to in this way is priceless. Its good for your soul and your mental health. It helps you get rid of the negative emotions you’re carrying around, recharge your batteries and get back into the fight!
Love you all!
Do great things!

It all comes back to liking yourself. Your “self”. The inner you. I know so many of us preach that money isn’t happiness. That’s definitely not what I’m preaching! I love money! I think money is an amazing tool and more good people need to be rich!
I think what the quote is getting at is that if it doesn’t set your soul on fire it’s an empty deed and we cant get full off of empty deeds. No matter how many of them you do.
Maybe for you it’s not about money? Maybe for you it’s not about a career or settling down and having a family.
Society will say something about a persons chosen lifestyle regardless. Interesting to note though: society isn’t looking so hot itself, and like in every other aspect of life: we shouldn’t take advice from people who don’t have what we want.
In other words: let society talk. Let others judge. You make the choices that make YOU happy, because at the end of the day no matter what, no matter where, no matter who–you have to live with yourself.
Your tribe will always find you. Even people who like ketchup on their eggs have a group (wink)
P.S. I like ketchup on my eggs! and pineapple on my pizza!!

I think this is a very good way to see success. There are few things that can disrupt a person who has all three of these things.
There have been times in my past where I didn’t like myself very much. The sad part is it wasn’t always so clear. A lot of the times we may think we like ourselves, but you would question that if you saw the things we allow to happen to us.
You would question how much we like ourselves if you saw how we let people treat us. The decisions we make on a day to day basis say a lot about how we actually feel about ourselves.
Every year there are new resolutions being made. I’ve seen a lot of posts about 2020 being about loving ourselves. I pray that we all find the courage we require on a daily basis to love ourselves and to be the most important person in our lives.
Remember the airplanes: it is always advised to put your mask on first, because you can’t help anyone if you suffocate.
Same goes for the day to day grind: be sure to love yourself first, because you cannot love others if you suffocate.
Love yourself enough to start toady. I have the best intentions that this simple little post adds positive vibes to at least one person today.

What do you do if you want to pass a test? Study. What do you do if you want to win a game? Practice. What do you do when you fall in love? Jump into it and hope it works out.
Doesn’t make much sense does it? It blows my mind how people will study and prepare for all sorts of things, and when it comes to relationships just kind of wing it. Totally underplaying the fact that you’re about to start a LIFE with a completely different PERSON who has their own VIEWS and way of doing things.
Relationships (at least those that you care about) should be the one thing that you study, practice and give your absolute best to make work in the best possible way.
That makes sense right? If you love someone and want to spend the rest of your life with them that you should do as much preparing as possible to make sure that the two of you give your absolute best for one another?
Of course not. You’re right. You should just jump into it and trust that love will be enough to get you over the fact that he expects you to do all of the dishes–always.
Be smart, do your homework and find out how the two of you can put your best foot forward and work out any potential conflict before it happens. Talk to a coach. Don’t wait until you’ve hurt the one you love by not paying attention to their needs. Learn their love language. Learn yours.
