Sometimes looking back isn't so bad.

It isn't a bad thing to be able to look back and see someone there. It's good sometimes to be able to feel some push-back from an opposing view or decision. It's feels good to know that someone agrees with you. It's wonderful to be able to feel comfortable that you have some support. It's great to know that you have a springboard for your thoughts and ideas. Just being able to know that someone has your back is can, at times, be an indescribable feeling.

Never feel slighted, misled, stupid or anything of the like just because you take the time to look back. Sometimes it's necessary to look back so you don't forget where you came from or how far you've come. It can be extremely beneficial to look back and reflect on past hurt, pain or mistakes - even if only for your understanding of how not to make the same mistake twice. Looking back can help you to remain humble. It can help you re-focus and re-center yourself when you've lost your way in life.

Sometimes looking back isn't so bad.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Be Careful

We've all heard the saying "what goes around comes around". The problem is that people think this only applies to good energy or bad energy. It applies to both good and bad energy.

All of your words and actions are reflective of your heart. No matter how you may feel at a given moment, what you say or do at that moment speaks to how you feel. If you're angry and you speak out of anger, you will end up hurting someone - even if that someone is you. On the other hand, if you are full of love and you speak/act out of love you will encourage and build someone up - including yourself.

Be very careful of the energy you send out because you are responsible for it. Good or bad, it will come back to you - like it or not. Think before you act or speak. You may end up hurting or helping someone and that someone could be you.

It's beautiful to be you, simply beautiful.

New Friends

Sometimes you just have to make new friends.

There may come a time in your life when you feel stuck, stagnant or as if you are just going through the motions in life. You may be doing all you can and all you should, but for some reason the things and people around you remain the same. It's sort of like watching a scene in a movie where a set background scene is looped - for example, the outdoor scenery when a car is driving a long distance. Things around you begin to look the same and eventually become a blur.

If you feel this way and you're doing all that you should, then the problem isn't you. If you are experiencing growth and positive change in your life, but when you look around you get confused - it's time to make new friends.

When you've changed for the better and you're growing from within, that's when it's time to change outwardly. However, people, places and things in your life have weight just like the decisions you make. When that weight becomes so heavy that you can no longer enjoy the positivity within, it's time to explore your options for change. You wouldn't make the same decisions over and over despite the negative consequences every time, right? Likewise, your outward change should match your inward change.

Surround yourself with the people, places and things that support the positive change in your life. Surround yourself with bright, positive energy. When you look around and what you see doesn't line up with what you see when you look's time to make new friends.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Your Eye

Having an artistic mind will cause you to see things differently from most people. You may see a field of grass and see it as nature's bed. Someone else will see the same field you saw and they will see it as a lot of overgrown weeds and unkempt land. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Such as the world is seen in the eye or mind of each person viewing it.

Have you ever wondered what others see when they look at you? What do you see when you look at yourself? What do you think matters more - what you see or what others see when they look at you? What others see can be used for constructive criticism and may aid you in self-improvement. However, what they see has no bearing on your happiness.

Live well. Do well unto yourself and unto others. Treat others how you wish to be treated. Never allow anyone else's view or thoughts of you infringe upon your happiness.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

An invitation to share a meal does not have to mean that you will be that meal. Be very aware of your surroundings - including the people, places, and the energy that may affect you. Everyone else's idea of an invitation may not be what you have in mind when you extend an invitation to someone.

Be aware and mindful of what you're being invited to - you may not want to attend.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Done From the Beginning

When all you can think about is what happened before, who was there before, how you felt before or how you were treated before...honey, you were done from the beginning.

In order to grasp your present and give it the chance and the power to create your future, you have to let go of your past. That in no way means that you should forget the lessons you've learned from your past. But you can't cling to your past and expect to move forward into your future. You have to make a choice. You have to decide what exactly you will hold onto.

You have to decide if you will be held hostage by past pain, past failures, past disappointments, past embarrassments or even loss. While some things are easier to let go of than others, letting go always begins with the choice and decision to do so. If you can't let go to go're already done from the beginning. Think about it.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Okay To Love

Snotty nose
Runny nose
Itchy eyes
Watery eyes
It's okay...

It's okay...

It's okay...

It's okay...

It's okay...
...or is it?

It's okay to love. To love all the good and the bad, the ups and the downs - it's okay. It's okay to love all the perfect imperfections about a person...including yourself. No one is perfect. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you will be able to love yourself wholeheartedly. The sooner you love yourself wholeheartedly, the sooner someone else will be able to love you too.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
