Trust the path you’re on

Sometimes you just simply need to have faith and trust that the path you’re on is exactly where you’re supposed to be. It’s not always easy, but it’s the way…

The last few weeks have been quite a challenge… From surgery to balancing all of life’s responsibilities to making sense of relationships to deciding where I should go and what I should do.

This quote was sent to me by a friend… And it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. It served as a reminder that sometimes you just have to stop what you’re doing and just live. Stop over analyzing every little thing and accept what you have.

Sometimes you have to come to the realization that you can’t always do everything. That there are limits. That you have to set limits. Sometimes the most important thing you can do is stop everything and just take care of you.

People may understand or they won’t. If they don’t then the loss is on them. Taking care of you and loving you should always come first… If you don’t do those two things, what good can you be to those of you in your life? And for the “some” that don’t get it? Do you really want those kind of people in your life?

My friend Amy, posted the above of Instagram… Yet another message received at the perfect time. Make room in your life for the right people. The people that build you up. Don’t allow others to tear you down.

Leave room enough in your heart only for those deserving and worthy. Keep the loving hearts and genuine souls close always. They’re the ones to hold near and dear no matter the day or situation.

You never know where your sunshine will come from. You never know whose day you’ll brighten. So keep a happy heart and a loving smile handy.

Trust the path you’re on. Enjoy every second of the ride and always be kind, no matter. ❤❤❤

Keep It Positive

In life there are always ups & downs, goods & bads, chances & choices.

You have the choice to say what’s on your mind either good or bad.

You have the chance to make an impact in either a positive or negative manner.

In any case, why choose anything other than being positive?

Yes, life can throw you curve balls. You can encounter people or situations who breed negativity. It’s up to you to find the positives. It’s up to you to make the choice whether you’re going to let the negativity overshadow. There’s ALWAYS something positive to be found in every situation. Sometimes it just takes a bit longer to see it or find it. Sometimes it takes a bit of creativity to bring it to light, but I firmly believe you can & will find a positive if you TRULY want to.

It doesn’t always come easy. Be persistent. Take control of what you don’t like. If you see or hear something that bothers you you can ignore it or address it.

Within any given day, any given situation, you have the opportunity to voice your opinion. Say what you mean & follow through with it. Don’t say something just for the sake of saying it. If you don’t mean it, don’t say it. There’s no point in blowing smoke.

Staying true to your word is a way of living. What you say is a reflection of who you are. Be genuine, be encouraging, be supportive. Think before you speak. Your words can & will always leave a lasting impression. One that sticks around long after they’re said. Sometimes when nothing is said, the message comes across more clearly. Think about it.

This is where it becomes tricky. People don’t always mean what they say. I’ve learned that the hard way. Some mean it in that moment. Some say it because they think it’s what you want to hear. Some say it because they want to get something. Some say it without even thinking or realizing potential consequences. Just because you mean what you say, doesn’t mean everyone else does. At times that can be disheartening, I realize. But, as with anything in life, nothing and no one is perfect. My point is, What you say (or don’t say) and how you say it makes a difference.

I digress. Back to the original point of this post.

We only have this one life to live. It is what you make of it. You get out of it what you take from it. Look at the bright side of life and all it has to offer you.

Be honest. Keep faith. Life is for living and living brightly. Life is for loving and loving wholly.

Your words reflect your actions. Your actions influence thoughts. All of which have an impact on your path which also may impact those around you. If you have the choice to keep it positive, why choose anything other than that?

“Keep your head up
Try and listen to your heart
Be kind always, no matter
We all grow up
And someday we’ll say goodbye
So shine your light while you got one”
-Drunken Soldier by Dave Matthews Band

Be kind, always no matter. Be positive, always no matter. ❤

Let your light shine

Live life as bright as you can.

Smile.

Be a ray of sunshine.

You’re only as bright as you allow yourself to be. Why not be the brightest star in the sky? Why not be the brightest ray of sun?

I’m a big list person.

To-do lists

Must-do lists

Lists for work, home & crafty projects

Lists for things I want to do & things I have to do.

This list though is one we should all take a look at, consider & incorporate into our daily adventures.

This list is an awesome list.

Read it.

Live by it. Not just today, but everyday

Give it a shot.

Give it a go.

Happy Friday Friends!

Love your life

Don’t let a minute go by without taking a minute to appreciate all that you have.

Live the life you’re given.

Don’t waste time longing for what you don’t have.

There’s a reason you are where you are with what you have. Don’t question it. Don’t over think it.

Just live it.

Just love it.

Live fabulously.
