I am me…

I am me…

 

I have fought a thousand battles,

but I’m still standing.

I have cried a thousand tears,

but I’m still smiling.

I have been broken, betrayed,

abandoned and rejected,

but I’m still walking proud.

I smile, I laugh, I live life without

fear, and when I love, I love hard.

I am humble, I am beautiful,

I am real… I am me.

~Absolutely Positive

Being authentic and real

takes a lot of thought

and dedication.

 

It is often easy to just agree with someone

or some cause that is presented in your presence.

 

Saying that you agree with someone or some cause

that you really don’t agree with is a way of

getting through the moment

or event the easiest way you can.

 

But it isn’t being honest or authentic.

 

So every time you compromise

your true self and your true feelings,

you are actually moving

a little farther away from your true, authenticity. 

 

It is harder to be real and to stand up

for what you believe,

often resulting in many tears and heartaches,

yet in the end you will have your true self fully intact

while being better able to continue on with your life

in an unabandoned honest fashion.

 

So whether you feel broken, betrayed,

or rejected, be proud of yourself for living without fear

and loving hard.

 

Because you have chosen to be

your real,

beautiful self.

 

Smiling and laughing

through both the good times and

the hardships of life.

Redefine beauty…

Redefine beauty…

 

Oh honey, don’t worry

about being merely beautiful.

Be bold.  Be wild.

Be strong.  Be confident.

Be independent and intelligent.

Be fierce.  Be brave enough

to be real in this fake world.

Redefine beauty.

~Brooke Hampton

In this day and age where beauty can easily be bought

by simply having your nose fixed and your eyes lifted,

it is a little rarer to find the simple beauty

defined by strength and authenticity.

 

A beauty that comes from being

brave and uniquely you.

 

A beauty defined by character

rather than just a beautiful appearance

and stunning good looks.

 

Dare to be different.

 

Dare to be real in a world filled with

fake everything.

 

From enhanced breasts to expensive

personality coaching and training.

 

After all, you must be politically correct in every way.

Being so careful not to offend anyone for being different.

 

Yet by being natural and independent,

you run the risk of being a social out cast,

which calls for you to be even stronger

and fiercer in your own truth and self worth.

 

Go ahead and redefine beauty.

 

Be your wild,

confident,

authentic self.

 

Show the world how beautiful

you really are

by redefining beauty with your

strengths and accomplishments

rather than

the newest face lift procedures.

The spiritual journey…

The spiritual journey…

 

And then I learned

the spiritual journey

had nothing to do with being nice.

It had to do

with being real and authentic.

Having boundaries.

Honoring and respecting my space first,

others second.

And in this space of self-care,

being nice just happened, it flowed…

not motivated by fear,

but by LOVE.

~ Michelle Olak

Many people confuse “being nice”

with having boundaries.

 

They think that they have to do everything

everyone wants them to do

and say so that they will feel like they are

being NICE enough.

 

This is not authentic or real, however,

and ends up being phony.

 

To continue your spiritual journey,

you must honor and respect your

sacred space.

 

Fill it with love and

let love

spill out

into the world around you.

 

Then your spiritual journey grows

until “nice”

just happens

because it is an important

and central part

of your life.

Never stop loving…

Never stop loving…

 

” I look around and see so much fear,

people getting more and more comfortable

with their hate, more at ease being mean,

more united in their separation.  And I

think, NO. Not me.  I will not get lost in

this fearful world.  I will not play with

bullies. I will continue to be brave and

kind.  I will speak for real unity,  And no

matter what, I will never stop loving.”

~Scott Stabile

We are all responsible for our own lives, and our own happiness.

To some, one thing is important and to another something else is equally important.

Each of us has the choice every day to decide what is important to us and what is not.

For those involved in fearful things, it is their life.

They are comfortable with it.

They allow anger and hatred to creep into their life more and more each day.

They end their relationships in separation and discord.

And to some people that is okay.

 

But for me it’s not.

I strive for more peace and harmony in my life every day.

Bullies need not apply.

I will include and allow unity,  And no

matter what, I will never stop loving.

The velveteen rabbit…

The velveteen rabbit…

 

He said, “You become.  It takes 

a long time.  That’s why it doesn’t 

happen often to people who break

easily, or have sharp edges, or who

have to be carefully kept.  Generally,

by the time you are Real, most of

your hair has been loved off, and your

eyes drop out and you get loose in

the joints and very shabby.  But these

things don’t matter at all, because once

you are Real you can’t be ugly, except

to people who don’t understand.”

 

 

*

This is a wonderful story about love.

Anyone who can love in an unconditional way, like loving someone who has most of their hair loved off,

is someone to be treasured.

 

Most people are only looking for someone else to complete them in some way,

or to do all of the things that they don’t want to do.

 

Things like;

  • Cooking them breakfast.
  • Cooking them dinner every night.
  • Giving them sex on demand.
  • Continuous appreciation.
  • Endless compliments.
  • Liking all of their crazy ideas.
  • Giving them money.
  • Supporting them in every way.
  • Buying them things.
  • Making them feel like Superman.
  • Doing all of the house work.
  • Washing their clothes.
  • Washing the dishes.
  • Paying the bills.

If this sounds like people you have known,

you understand how nice it would be to be loved unconditionally

instead of having to follow all of these conditions to receive anything back.

 

It’s just not worth it, and quite honestly, impossible to please someone like this.

 

They are so entitled, and so easily offended, there is really NO WAY to please them.

No matter what you do for someone like this, they always want more.

They may be pleased for the moment, but they are always looking for someone better.

Someone who REALLY loves them.

 

So it’s no wonder that their relationships don’t last very long.

 

There is no love to be reciprocated.  Only pretending.

Only using someone for their own self gratification, so that they can feel loved.

 

Endless promises that don’t mean a darned thing.

Like marriage vows once you get divorced.

People are so fickle and conditional.

 

Not at all like the velveteen rabbit who was loved and loved

and loved some more.

Who became who he was  by being loved, and living life

in a real kind of way.

The value of…

The value of…


The older I get,the more I realize

the value of privacy, cultivating 

your circle, and only letting

certain people in.  You can be

open, honest, and real while

still understanding not everyone

deserves a seat at the 

table of your life.

We don’t know…

 

We don’t know…

I guess the real fact of the

matter is.. we don’t know

what tomorrow will bring,

and the only thing we really

have is…right now.  So, don’t

stay mad for too long.  Learn

to forgive and love with all

your heart.  Live every day of

your life the way you want to

live it.  Don’t worry about

people who don’t like you.

Enjoy the ones who love you.

~Life Learned

Feelings

Today is the only time you really have to do anything.

The past is past and only memories exist from it.

Sometimes it’s the memories that take over our present so that we can’t even function in the now.

So practice forgiving and living in the present to have a more joyous and peaceful life.

 

Love with all your heart.  

 

Just go for it because you never know when “tomorrow may be too late.”

Don’t worry about those who don’t seem to like you.

They have their own journey and if you happen to be successful and they are not,

they are probably just jealous of you.

 

Don’t let someone else’s journey make your’s less bright.

Shine with all you have and live your life the way only you can.
