Living Your Best Life For You!

    When you hear the words "Happiness" and "Peace" what does it mean to you? Does it mean finding those qualities in someone else so that it makes you feel whole? Or does it mean you taking control of your own? Prior to having a husband and children, I was looking for happiness through people and things. I hung out with people that I wasn't really feeling like that, I bought things that I DID NOT need. Those things made me happy at that moment, but it was temporary. It wasn't until my expectations from certain individuals let me down that I realized I was putting TOO much expectations on people. I was silently broken and knew that I had to shift my mindset. For me, it was ending some friendships, quitting a job, moving to another city, and starting fresh. Even with doing that, I still have to be mindful about my aura and reminding myself to live for ME.

    Society has a way of distracting us in the cycle we call life. It makes us think that certain people CAN NOT amount to anything. Which is NOT true. You want to go back to school while working and having a family at home? Yes, go for it! You want to buy that Louis Vuitton bag because you worked hard, paid your bills, handled your business first? Yes, get that bag girl! You want to write that paperback or eBook? Who said you can't? Go for it! You want that raise at work? Don't be afraid to ask for it... You deserve more! and the list goes on... Your life is for you! My advice is to just make sure you make the right decisions. If you are a parent especially, make sure you handle home first. Don't buy that LV bag and there's no food in the fridge or the rent/mortgage and light bill is not paid. (make sense?)

    You also have to stop living in fear. I am still working on this as I type. The world we live in is a very scary one. If I could keep my family in a shell away from everything and everyone,  I would. BUT, I shouldn't. There are so many opportunities out there, so many different places to visit and create memories. I want to experience it all and I want my husband and girls to as well. You too should feel this way. As the new year approaches, I suggest you choose one thing that you want to conquer that has you fearful. It could be as big as traveling to a different state or country or something small as doing your first live on Facebook or Instagram lol. Stepping out of your comfort zone will definitely change your life and make you a better person. 

     I challenge you all to choose one or more things to do for the new year and shift your mindset. Live your best life for you!
