I heart…

dear you,

happy Wednesday!  no matter how your week has gone, take a moment today to try and let it all fall away. it’s unfortunate that our society tends to focus on the negative. instead of telling ourselves what we like, we spend much more time beating ourselves up over our flaws, or counting the things we want to change about ourselves.

so today, take a good long look at yourself, and find one thing that you love. or even something that you kind of like. one thing that makes you beautiful and special and unique. I guarantee there’s at least one thing in every single person. once you find that one thing, write it down. write it here, write it on your blog, write it on your bathroom mirror, write it on a piece or paper and put it by your bedside. but wherever you choose to write it, make sure you write it down. it will be harder to forget if you write it. so find one thing you love about yourself, then write it, remember it, treasure it, believe it.

love, me

what do you love about yourself?

dear you,

happy Saturday! hopefully you all are having a much more relaxing weekend than I’m having (don’t get me wrong, I love mock trial, but tournament weekends are far from relaxing).  think about it for a minute, is there anything nicer than getting a nice message in your inbox?  sometimes the message comes at exactly the right moment to brighten your day, or sometimes it’s just enough to get you through a rough patch, or simply makes you smile. 

today, go send someone a message in their ask box, starting with “I think you’re…” and completing the sentence with something positive about them, or their blog.  :)

so go ahead, make someone’s day.

love, me

PS, I think you’re incredible. far more incredible than you give yourself credit for, love.

I think you’re…

dear you,

happy Saturday! I hope you all have been having an absolutely lovely week, and a nice, relaxing weekend. <3

one of the nicest things that makes me smile? getting a nice note, or hearing an unexpected compliment.  I know I’m not alone in feeling special when some kind person takes a few seconds out of their day to say something nice to me.  we all spend a lot of time being busy, rushing around, or focusing on ourselves.  and don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with focusing on yourself.  it’s good to pay attention to your own wants and needs.

but sometimes, let’s take that focus and turn it outwards.  say something nice to someone else. doesn’t it make you feel good when you see their smile? I know it makes me feel amazing. so take today to find one person you don’t know, and leave them a nice message in their ask box.  how much time out of your day will it take to find one person, and say one nice thing to them?  you never know, you might save a life, be the spark of light in a dark tunnel, dry a tear, or create a smile.

so go ahead, make someone’s day.

love, me

PS, I think you’re such an incredible, beautiful, unique individual.

I think we too often forget this. we look around and see society&#8217;s ideal of perfection. society telling us what we should look like, what schools to go to, what professions to strive for, what to think, what to believe in&#8230; it takes courage to stand up and say &#8220;no, this is what I want, and you can&#8217;t make me change.&#8221;  but standing up and saying that is something that will make you happier than conforming to society&#8217;s ideas. &#8216;society&#8217; is an abstract concept. there isn&#8217;t any one person that embodies &#8216;society.&#8217; &#8216;society&#8217; does not have to live your life. you have to live your life. and if you aren&#8217;t happy with the life you live, then what&#8217;s the point?
decide who you are. decide who you want to be. and be you.

I think we too often forget this. we look around and see society’s ideal of perfection. society telling us what we should look like, what schools to go to, what professions to strive for, what to think, what to believe in… it takes courage to stand up and say “no, this is what I want, and you can’t make me change.”  but standing up and saying that is something that will make you happier than conforming to society’s ideas. ‘society’ is an abstract concept. there isn’t any one person that embodies ‘society.’ ‘society’ does not have to live your life. you have to live your life. and if you aren’t happy with the life you live, then what’s the point?

decide who you are. decide who you want to be. and be you.
