For starters, yes I went on a hike today with my bestfriends. Yes, I wore my bathing suit and my hunters because I felt like it. I’ve been workin’ hard lately behind the scenes, and hell yeah for good views. – Let me NOT give another “self love” rant this winter, but keep your thoughts to yourselves or your friend group messages. I have a hell of a lot of self confidence and i’ll throw it around even on the top of a mountain. This is life. Have fun with it, babe.
I learned today that everything heals. Those days that you think you aren’t going to make it, are the days that you get to soft smile about when you have good days. Why were you so upset about one of the best things that could have ever happened to you? – Now read that again in the opposite connotation you originally read it in. what the “best thing” you first referred to? If it was the person who hurt you even though they said they wouldn’t, we’ve got a long way to go. Today is the first day that you learn that one of the best things that could ever happened to you are lessons. You either win or you learn, don’t lose.
I adventured today. The company that you keep will always be a large part of the way you should base your standards off of. If you want to be sad, hangout with the people who accept you for that. happy? adventurous? They don’t all have to be the same humans, never forget there’s power in numbers. Make a friend far away from home, make a couple while you’re at it. One of the best things that have EVER come of social media is the ability to meet new people. Connect in places you’d never go, and don’t look back. But for now, hold the people close to you tight.
Its hard to find an adventure on the cold days. Our minds are almost the most beautiful thing on this planet (besides you) and we forget that sometimes, that is the best way to adventure. Have you been writing? Have you been trying to write? Have you done anything to better yourself within the last week? Come back. Wherever you are, wherever you’ve been, whatever act you had on for Valentines day, come back. GET IT TOGETHER – spring break is soon, summer is sooner, and my oh my are we excited. Haven’t heard from someone you wish you had? Stop. Move forward. Get attention from yourself, crave attention from yourself. It’s okay to be alone. Your life may be a shit show, but make it everyone’s favorite show to watch.
That’s the thing about life, love, lust, if you don’t look at it like an adventure then the fun is only to be found. You’ll spend forever looking for happiness when it really comes down to what’s going on in your mind. Stick by the people who ask you “Whats on your mind” instead of “what’s up.” It’s a respect thing to say the least, but it’s also the difference between “need” and “want” or “your” and “you’re.” Now, loves, when someone goes to ask you “what’s on your mind,” don’t go all crazy and Drake on them. Sometimes a simple “you” will do the trick. Smiles all around.
It’s been so easy to get caught up within the hustle and bustle of school, work, your sport. But I want you to never forget that you can have it all. Make yourself happy first. Take the adventure. Walk far and wide – bring 3 people or 30 people. Stop looking back to people who don’t want you. Stop looking back at people who will never pick their head up for you. Stop going back to people who didn’t make you better. They will move on, and in the meantime, so will you. You’re so much better than you think, than they could EVER make you feel. Its okay to miss people, but lets be honest. You don’t miss hating yourself at the hand of someone who claimed to love you and never leave you. Leave before you are left. I’ve learned the hard way about looking back, and I’m so glad I’ve finally found my way each and every day moving onward and upward. always.
Start being yourself. Everyday. Start online shopping (it helps!) and start choosing you. Everytime, I promise, (and you know I hate promises) you’ll be okay. Choose you, choose love, and be happy for those who cannot be happy for you. In this life, stop looking back. Start looking at the future. It’s bright. You can still be whatever you would like to be, and that’s how it will always be. I want you to, I need you to, and I wish you will….
Adventure within your mind, and go to the places you love. Stop filling your mind with reoccurring thoughts, and throw them out. Make room for the new. Everything happens for a reason. Keep wishing on 11:11 if you do all of that. Call your bestfriend. Catch up with your old ones. Tell your parents you love them, and hug your love like it was the first time you ever met. You’ve got this.
