Ok, from this point on you are going to read this post in your world-dominating voice. *grabs tiara* Stop questioning how great you are. Stop feeding into this belief that you are not worthy of the crown that sits upon your head. Stop hating on yourself. Trust me the haters will flock, so why do their job for them? When was the last time you were genuinely happy without questioning yourself. Do I deserve this? Have I earned this? Can I do this? *leans in to whisper in your glitter-dusted ear* Yasss girl! You are more than worthy. So it’s time that you let go of that ugly little voice in the back of your head that questions you. There’s no room for self-doubt on our journey to bliss. #buhbye
So for the first time in my 23 years of life, I felt insecure. Yep-I never thought that word would come out of my mouth. That word. That dirty, disgusting, self-hate filled word. But it happened, and I get it now. But I’m done with it. *Kanye shrugs* I never want to feel like I am not enough again. This is me refusing to accept insecurities. This is me challenging myself to find the root of the issue, and work through it before it becomes toxic again. HOWEVER: if you’ve read my previous post, then you know I didn’t realy understand what insecurities were. So this process will work for me. I am going to work on what I need to work on to never question my greatness again. But do what you need to do! Figure out how to fall madly in love with yourself. Not just any type of love. We want that: Kanye loves Kanye, Honeymoon phase forever, acoustic music by the beach kind of love…with yourself. A love that deep can fight insecurity. Love yourself into bliss.
Your journey is yours. Period. *drops mics and twirls onto a throne* I think it’s time that we finally accepted that no two individuals can be compared. So stop Venn-Diagramming your life to hers. No two snowflakes are the same. When you’re too involved with comparing your life to another beings, then you are failing to be present in yours. How are you living a life that you aren’t there for? I think it’s about time we sacrificed comparing our journey for happiness. Let’s live in the moment, and appreciate it.
This one may be hard, but: you have to stop hating on others. It’s true. I mean think about it, have you ever seen a hater doing better than you? *cricket cricket* No girl, they don’t win. Haters don’t win in life. Haters are not happy people. All of that toxic energy that they release into life is not pure. So yes, that girl may still be wearing colored contacts. Yes, she’s dating your ex-boyfriend. Yes, he gets a lot of attention at work. But hating and judgement isn't going to fix that. I just know that I am a much happier person when I only share positive energy. Judging another beings garden is not going to water yours. #yourflowersaredying #nohatebegreat
I hate excuses. I hate them so much. I literally just got into a confrontation because a classmate kept dishing them out. We all get the same 24 hours in a day. Why are you wasting those hours being mediocre? If you want something, do it.*flips table* No seriously, no more excuses. There is no better time than the present. So figure out what you want. Decide if what you want will make you happy. Then do it.
From one Type A Female to another, I celebrate you! I celebrate you in all of your greatness. I think to be truly happy we have to let go of this myth that only one of us can win. We can ALL win. And we can ALL be ecstatic about the others success.
Are you scared to be happy? No-this is a serious question. Does being completely happy freak you out? Does bliss scare you? It scares some people. And I get it, your dreams are meant to be a bit terrifying. But we can’t let that stop us. I’m tired of the what-ifs. What if I fail? What if I don’t make it? What if this doesn’t work-out. But you never think about what if I never try? Isn’t that the most terrifying of them all?

*screams it louder for the people in the back* Stop dimming your light for these haters! *claps ratchetly* I say this often, but: you either love me or hate me. I will NEVER talk down to you. I will NEVER make you feel less than. What people have a problem with is my refusal to act like I don’t love myself. People actually want me not to give myself compliments. People actually want me not address how fabulous I think I am. People think that me loving me=me hating on them. That is so far from true. But I will NEVER dim my light for you to feel better. What good is a dark room? I find my happiness in the light, and that is where I will stay! *snaps in Z formation*
