Hi.

Welcome to my blog where I will be documenting my journey to a happier, healthier lifestyle. 

Welcome to my brain...

Welcome to my brain...

So I feel like this blog is so random and thrown together, but I feel like it's an actual depiction of my brain. LOLZ (sheds tear...that's why that poor girls life is always in SHAMBLES) So basically I was scrolling through the notes on my phone and I found something I had written almost a month ago today. And I liked it. It's a lot of random thoughts kind of thrown together but it's a little insight from my brain on April 9, 2017. 

----April 9th: I think the older I get the more I realise that my actions can actually affect others. How I treat people, and the attitude that I have towards them can greatly affect a person. Growing up and figuring these things out is obviously a part of life. But it really never ceases to amaze me that I still don't have everything figured out. And I'm kind of letting that sink in. Like part of me is like I'm 24 I know EVERYTHINGGGG. And then another part of me is like BITCHHHH. YOU'RE 24. YOU KNOW NOTHING HONEY. NOTHING. But it's still a process learning this, and I feel like I'm learning new stuff every single day. Like saying something nice to someone costs nothing. Kindness costs nothing. Remembering that we are the change that we want to see in this world. Little ones look up to us. So we should be leading by example. We may not be changing their lives directly. But hopefully we are can influence them indirectly. I really try to make a conscience effort to sit down with my little chums every chance that I get and just talk to them...but also really listen to them. They can be so clever and funny and I think that we often over look this because we are so involved in our own lives and our lives online that we can become so distracted! 

We forget to be in the moment. I have to tell myself to put the phone down. Or pick it up. But actually talk to to people... and really listen. I sometimes catch myself half way listening or listening to only prepare myself for what I want to say next. And that's not really listening. It's selfish. But it's ok. We all do it. It's about how we go about it next time. Paying more attention to the little things. Like the construction going on down the street. Seriously... I was sat at a red light this week and I noticed the claw thingy doing its magic and I realised I knew what that thing was and I knew how it worked but I had never seen it being operated by someone. I never saw the beauty in it. It was honestly one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Like a freakin claw thing had me mesmerized. Like seriously, picture this: a 24 year old girl at a red light gazing at this construction site in complete awe. Mouth open. Eyes glazed over like it's Christmas morning. Mesmerised. 

Like it's a claw thingy Lo. It's not that serious. But it was that serious. Because it took me out of the busy ruckus of everyday life and placed me in the moment. And that's when I realised I had just experienced real life magic. And it was sooooo sooooo cool.----

So that's it... those were my thoughts from April 9th 2017. And with that being said. I have had some things that have been on my mind lately. That I want to remind myself of, but also I want to share with you. Be a role model. Stay humble. Live your life to the fullest, but remember to take a step back from the every day running around. And take it all in. Let it soak in. Let the sun hit your face and breathe in that fresh air. Smile at a stranger. And let go of all the anger inside. Create a positive environment around you, so that people will be drawn to you. Listen to people. Like REALLY listen. But also communicate with them! Tell people how you are feeling, even if it terrifies you. Things cannot get better unless you open up to how you have been feeling. And often remind yourself that happiness is not a destination. It's a mood! Thanks OTH! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Here's the direct quote because I love to read this when I'm having an off day! 

"I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We always think that someday we'll be happy. When we get that car or that job or that person in our lives who will fix everything. But happiness is a mood and it's a condition. Not a destination. It's like being tired or hungry. It's not permanent. It comes and goes and that's OK. And if people would think that way, they'd find happiness more often."

I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to your week. I love you all! 

XOXO-
