NEVER Let Anyone Dull your Sparkle!

Being new to the blogging world is to say the least, different.  You have people reading, but no followers.  You feel like you write about some good stuff, and then you double check yourself. But, honestly, I am here for YOU!  Whoever YOU are, you, who might need to read about a college experience, or blackened chicken, or just reading to read.

But, now I am going to give some advice, I am normally not one to give advice, because we are always learning, every minute, every day, but I had someone come to me yesterday, and I felt that I should share what I told her with all of you!

No matter where you are in life, NEVER stop being you.
You may hear this a lot, but have you ever really thought about it?
Take a minute, and really think about it.  Have you ever been in a position where you just don't know who you are anymore?  Or where you have been with someone that you never thought would take away your sparkle?  Sometimes things happen, people come, people go, people change.

But, my advice for you, is that, no matter who you are with, what you are doing, or where you are, NEVER stop being who you are.  Do not let yourself get to a point where you don't like who you have become, and do not let anyone make you feel less than you are.  Easier said than done, huh?  I know, it's hard, its a journey, it's different and sometimes you don't realize when you have changed.  But, having true friends, and that one moment where you know you do not deserve to be treated like crap, is that moment where you are ready, ready to remember and be proactive on being YOU!

It is time to let go of that negativity and just know that you matter, you do not have to be treated like crap.  You have trials and tribulations and things happening on a daily basis where you are tempted, questioned, saddened, but never should you be put down on a daily basis.  Leave that behind, and look forward.

If you have ever been faced with a situation that has really made you take another look at life and realize that it DOES NOT MATTER WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU, then you really need to take that in and know that it is true.  There is a point in life, in a relationship, in your family, in your home, where you realize that you can't please everyone, and you don't have too.  The only person that you need to make happy, is you, and keep that smile on your face.

But, even when you see this same advice, over and over, you start to not believe it.  You think that no one understands and nothing is going right...
Even though things like these feelings and mishaps are not permanent, and even if you ask for the advice you can't help but be frustrated because even when someone tells you their input, you think 'And you think I haven't tried this or that before?' or 'How do you expect me to do that?' or the one thing that prevents you from moving forward, being scared...

But, there will always be that fear, but there will also be that understanding that things cannot be fixed in seconds, it takes time, remember that.  But, putting on a smile and telling yourself you are happy, your brain will soon recognize and it will come as habit to smile and know that you truly are happy and that nothing can prevent that.

You are in charge of your own happiness.

Advice is advice, you can take it, you can leave it, they aren't always the words you want to hear, but remember you have no reason not to be happy. 

You are beautiful.
