Just Do It

Find a Way & Make it Happen

I'm finding my way and I'm doing my thing. I get alot of "Oh no she didn'ts" but thats perfectly okay with me. Stopping to think about it only prohibts the growth of all the wonderful seeds I have planted in my dreams. Now don't get me wrong, its not like you can go about life floating on a cloud and think that you will never hear the negatives....this is most definitely not the case, but when it comes down to it, I'm going to do what I want. For life to get good, you must get going on life.

Surround yourself with positive people that will add value to your life, not devalue who you are. It is okay to be happy. It is just fine to forget and move on from people and things that take away from that happiness. It is okay to just GO FOR IT. People tell me everyday that maybe I'm a little ahead of myself, that maybe I should slow down, and that maybe I am reaching a bit much. My answer to that? Compared to what?! Opinion is wasted, money is nothing, and judgement is jealousy. Noone else is in my mind, is living my life, and therefore noone is anyone to question my choices.

Sometimes you have to realize that in order to live your life, you must own your life. No matter the obstacle, all shall be overcome. Everything in its place & everything in it's time.

Live Truely

   To be one's self is without a doubt one of the best opportunities someone has at living life fully. We are only given one chance in this life, live it truly.

    Recently after a major life change, someone asked me what had happened, expecting me to pour my heart out in an attempt to heal a hurt, yet this was the last thing on my mind. The only response I had was "I'm doing what I need to do for me." Somehow those words flowed ever so naturally, without need for any explanation. As I sat looking at my life through the eyes of an open heart, I couldn't help but admire the journey that had brought me to where I was. Sitting there with nothing more but a dream in mind, and a wealth of happiness to share, I knew I was ready for whatever life had in store for me. While I could sit so comfortable in this uncertainty of where my journey was taking me , a year ago I could have not truthfully committed myself to the previous statement. It takes time, it takes failure, it takes success, and a you can bet that it takes a whole lot of faith to allow good things in. We make plans while God laughs. To realize this is to know that....

Life doesn't take the time to wait for us
but if you are smart you will take the time
to experience what it has bestowed upon you.

Take a chance

When something inspires you, hold on to it. In order to move your soul, you have to be open to possibilities. When you feel that love, the passion you have for something, it is unlike anything else, it will change you. To accomplish great things you must have great dreams.So let yourself go and wander, let your passion take you where your heart feels right. Without a love for something, there's not a lot to look forward to in this life. Go ahead and believe in your happiness. Learn something new today, revel in your dreams, indulge in your passion, live your life.

...Be the one to take a chance on yourself...

Take the Time

Move your hips, smile your smile and walk your walk...Simple as that. Life is grand, and no one can tell me otherwise. For so long I put everyone before myself; all I have to say is that its my time now. I still love those around me and would do anything for them, but I have come to realize that I am much happier when I not only help those around me, but I take care of myself. Whether it is taking my time to start my day, since there is no real rush anyway, or relishing in the company of another, there is no reason not to smile. Once you learn to take care of yourself, suddenly all the problems become so much smaller and everything good seems that much better. You should never feel guilty for enjoying life. Just do you, the rest will come with time. Now I'm not going to rush it but you better believe that I am going to enjoy it.
Zone out the world today
Do your own thing, and love your passion
Find your beat and live for what you love.
Remember everything in its own time.
You never know what you might miss if you rush it.

Quality over Quantity

 I found myself today trying to comprehend what had just happened. Completely exhausted from the night before, but just a little too happy to care, I tried so desperately to sort through my thoughts and place each and every feeling, yet none of it mattered. All I knew was that I was moving toward wonderful things. Amongst the laughter and friends, somehow a part of my world was changed last night. A passion was sparked that had been missing in my life, something inside me was alive again.  While I can't quite put it into words just yet, I know that this was just the beginning......

 Life doesn't always give you time to catch up. Some days you wake up with the realization that you may have had a little "too much fun" the night before, yet still have to work all day. That's life for you. There are no rules as to when and how things happen, just a reaction. Enjoy the moments life gives you and the people you meet. After all in the end it is the quality of a life lived over the quantity.

A Fresh Start

As the crisp air breathed new life into my skin, a smile full of love couldn't help but happen. Waking early on a Saturday morning is made worth it when met with a beautiful day, and wonderful people.
While I strolled the farmers market, every smile I was met with was a welcomed relief amidst all the change. Every step alone gave me the confidence to smile right back.
Today I bought myself flowers, because once you let go of the only thing holding you down, you start to realize that you deserve more.
Starting over... it's not so bad. You see while we live in a world separated by far less than the old "seven degrees", we also live in a world where moving on can be as easy as hitting the "unfriend" button on one's social networking website. Sometimes you just need a clean break. Nothing is quite as complicated as the thoughts that clutter a persons sense of self and no one can take you away from you unless you let them. A beginning starts with a thought but doesn't happen without an action. You know when you are done, but you must make the conscious decision to move on. In the long run, life is worth it.

A snake sheds its skin to new life
as the sun rises to a new day.
Be thankful for every start you are given
and learn from every end that has occurred.

La Vida Sigue

This morning I found myself with a gut instinct that I would be okay. I woke up knowing that I was grabbing my life and running with it. For if I didn't all would be lost, and I would be yet just another woman lost in the chaos of another. Life is far too wonderful for maybes and much to short to be wasted on anything less than what one deserves. So this morning I swiftly packed up my life, leaving nothing but a note behind with the words "I'm done" penciled in.

Never look back
Always move forward
Nunca mires hacia atras
siempre hacia adelante
