It’s a choice

I’m no angel. I have a past littered with what a lot of people would consider mistakes, but that I consider lessons. I am who I am because of each time I fell… and each time I picked myself up. If you learn from your past, there are no “mistakes”– only lessons. “The greater theContinue reading “It’s a choice”

Chi la dura la vince

“Anyone can give up… it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart… that’s true strength.” I’ve heard people close to me ask “Is this all there is to life?” THIS IS YOUR LIFE.

Where He guides, He provides

The most beautiful people have the deepest scars. They’re the people who don’t let their pasts control or define them. The most people beautiful are the people who spend more time helping others than trying to figure out how others can help them. Beautiful people give, not take. Beautiful people find the beauty in whatContinue reading “Where He guides, He provides”

Watch your words, forContinue reading “A Little Bit of Life”

You’ve Got To Do Your Own Growing

The easiest thing in the world to do is give up. As a society, we’re encouraged to “just quit” when our circumstances allow us to become unhappy. We think the grass is greener on the other side, but what people don’t realize is that watering your own lawn is just as effective, if not moreContinue reading “You’ve Got To Do Your Own Growing”

Love Life

Life is short. As humans, we think we’ll live forever… it scares us to believe otherwise. How many of us truly appreciate life daily? How many of us really only appreciate life until someone we know has had their own life taken from them? Until someone you know or love has had their own lifeContinue reading “Love Life”

Life Happens

Failure isn’t fatal or final and “failing” at something doesn’t make you a failure… not getting back up, or not trying at all is. “The only real failure in life is the failure to try.” Failure is not defeat until you stop trying. Never confuse one loss or defeat to a total loss or aContinue reading “Life Happens”

Positivity

Happiness is a choice. People are as happy as they allow themselves to be. Your happiness, or lack thereof, is not a reflection of how other people around you treat you; your happiness is a direct result of the choices you make… you alone choose the actions that bring those feelings. Let them be actionsContinue reading “Positivity”
