Don't rush.

"Don't try to rush things that need time to grow."

One of the most challenging things we have to "accept" is when things don't happen right away. More frustrating is when we know we've worked hard to deserve them. I truly believe that things come to you not when you've earned them, but when you're ready for them. Nothing is given or happens to you when you're unable to take it on- even if at times things feel like they're "too much." Today, I want you to be kind to yourself and write a list of things you HAVE accomplished. Wow! What a list. It's so easy to forget our accomplishments when we're still waiting on other things to mend. Just know that what's meant to be yours will never leave sight of you unless you lose sight of it. Know what you want and work towards it- whether it's to become a Dr, write a book, find a great husband or wife, start a rescue, etc. I believe in you and your destiny...so should you.

Embrace it.

"It's all connected. Your gifts, your cicrcumstance, your purspose, your imperfections; your journey, your destiny. It's molding you, embrace it."

I genuinely believe that nothing is accidental. I believe that some things fall apart so better things can come together. I believe that it's difficult to stay optimistic when it feels like everything around you is crumbling, but I believe there's a lesson behind everything that happens. I've found the beauty of realizing that nothing is happening to me, rather for me- the good and the bad. All that happens in our lives molds us into people we are destined to become, down the line. Sometimes they happen quick and we become the person we were meant to be quickly and other times, like a flower- we need lots of time and water to flourish. It might not make sense now or maybe even tomorrow, but one day...you'll remember what you read and will agree, that everything was working for you. Promise.

Up to Bat.

If you're close to me, you already know what my friends know- that I hate dating. I've always thought it to be so awkward. When I'm asked to dinner, I tell them that I'd rather go for a walk. I feel like there's often too much pressure on dates and that's what drives me away from them. I've learned several things from opening up to dating that I'll share with you here. 1. It's really not that big of a deal. After a date, I always laugh at myself for building it up more than it was. 2. You can't win if you don't try. As awkward as dating is, you won't know what's out there until you try. 3. What you think you want isn't always what you believe to be. Dating has taught me a huge lesson- that this idolized image in my mind of what I "want" isn't always pretty in reality. The things I've dismissed have somehow become more intriguing. Life is all about finding you and creating a lifestyle that allows you to be your most authentic self. It's not about changing to accommodate others, but finding something that molds with you and inspires you to grow. You can't win home run if you're not willing to come up to bat. For my friends who are having trouble ‪dating‬ again, just know that it's not that bad, have fun with it, don't put too much pressure on yourself, worry about the future a little later and most importantly, there's no right time to date. You just have to do it and it you'd be surprised who you find.

Relationship Goals?

Nobody's relationship is

my relationship goals.


Remember that besides the fact that no one is perfect....most relationships are not either. What is perfect is finding someone who's imperfectly perfect for you. Meaning that we all have flaws but a person's flaws should never be something that hinders your growth, affects your ability to become a better person or does not add value to your life. Instead, I hope their flaws are the minor things like forgetting to put the toilet seat down, taking too long to get ready, etc. Lastly, know that there is always two sided to what you see on the surface. Social media will show you sides of a relationship that may not be false, but is also only a factor of what that relationship is, has gone through, or even how many things they have wrong in it. So, don't define your idea of a good relationship off of an image that's easily filtered.

The power of believing you are being benefited.

I have always been a person who prefers to remain in my comfort zone. I do not like the sense nor the feeling of being out of control. While many I know, thrive with change; I am one to differ. The greatest things I admire in change are things I can have control in such as, nail polish, redecorating, hair style, and penmanship. Things that I choose to do because I want to do them.

 

Several years ago, I took a public speaking class by force. Something if not required, I would never pursue for it is 1. Outside my comfort zone and 2. Something I do not like to do.

 

I was so jealous of my professor who gracefully walked across the classroom and spoke so eloquently and charming. He spoke with class and character and everything I wanted to do so that I could become a great speaker.

 

Each time I was called to speak, I felt a rush of anxiety pass through my body causing an endless load of nerves to shake me.

 

Sometimes, that’s all it takes to move pass, move with, or move on from a situation. Realizing that in the end, it’ll be the best thing that has happened to you.

 

I think that if from the beginning we knew that things would work out for our benefit, we wouldn't be so afraid of the changes we endure. Like not getting a job, missing the bus, ending a marriage, etc.

 

I've become more and more aware that we truly have no control of anything in life, other than our mindset. That is 100% our choice and we have the ability to believe, pursue, and react to circumstances all by changing our thoughts on the situation.

 

We are capable of the greatest accomplishments in life, yet without the BELIEF in doing so, we’ll never reach the top.

 

The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps; you gotta step up those stairs.

 

So, how do we do this? We begin by believing that whatever happens, will happen or has happened to us has and will be 100% for our benefit. It is believing that whatever happens to us, will benefit us to the maximum amount possible.

 

So whenever times are tough, ask yourself,

 

"How will this benefit me?"

 

Even when it is difficult to do, find the positive in the uncomfortable situation and just like, you allow the universe to line up positive vibes for you. FIND something to keep you going. Sometimes the things that have made us the most uncomfortable will rebuild us for a greater person to be born.

 

“You can keep dipping your toes in the pool one at a time, but the water's not going to feel any warmer. So take a deep breath and dive right in. You'll be surprised at how quickly you get used to it.”

 

 

How will this benefit you?

The dog on the left is named Becky. The dog on the right is named Bubba. I met Becky in late 2013 and wanted so badly to bring her home. Long story short, it didn’t work out so that I can adopt her. I was very sad, but things worked out for me…like they always have, do, and will. Just a few months later, I met Bubba. A dog with the same amount of letters in his name, but he was destined to be mine. I think back to that day when I found out I didn’t get Becky. I was BEYOND devastated- it was really the last disappointment I needed. I am blessed to have had Bubba come into my life for MANY reasons, but one of the best lessons he teaches me daily is believing in your heart that everything will work out to your benefit (in the end), even if it doesn’t feel that way right now. Think about this- if we knew off the bat that all the shitty things that didn’t go our way, people we’ve lost and situations that didn’t work in our favor were in reality- WORKING FOR US, wouldn’t we feel so much differently in that moment? There is a song by Joe Purdy that goes, "Some things don't work out the way they should..." I've learned that in fact, they do! Things always work out as they SHOULD and because of that, I've recently promised to adapt that belief to my life more and more. If we can believe that whatever happens to us, whatever challenge we face- big or small, is going to bear amazing gifts to us down the line, maybe we would not dwell on the little things. Always ask yourself, “Is this going to matter in a year from now?”

 

Try to find the good in the bad and believe that it is benefiting you, and watch how things around you begin to change.

 

 

"Everything that happens to me, only happens so that I can benefited to the maximum amount possible..."

"It took me some time to realize that you'll never be satisfied with the ocean of love I provide because you prefer puddles."


One of my favorite songs to workout to is, "You be killin em" by Fabulous. It's an oldie, but empowering. No matter how badass you are, you're not going to be for everyone. I'm really focusing on this because it's shocking to me to see how many people forget their worth when ONE person tells them they're not interested, don't want to make it work, etc. You know there are billions out people out there, right? People who are searching for all the things you offer. Sweetheart, "they don't make em like you no more..." Believe it.

I'm fortunate to live a few miles away from some of the most beautiful beaches. You can learn a lot from people, yourself and life there. It's nice to observe others or better yet, observe yourself- where you are in your life, mentally. Sometimes when I go to the beach, I like to lay on my back and close my eyes. I enjoy feeling the warm sand below me and hearing the waves crash against the shore, knowing that it'll continue to hit the shore again. It's so rare, yet so beautiful. It's kind of like those special people that not don't come around often but no matter how much you push them away, they're there for you. Looking at the water makes me realize we take so much for granted, clean water, sunny skies and fresh air. So why do we push away the ones who don't take us for granted? Is it fear, pride or not knowing their worth? Take advantage of being able to tell the ones you love you love them while you can because nothing in life is promised and I'd hate for you to watch something wash away just because you took it for granted.
