Where do I even start…
Well first off, I cannot believe I have not posted since Valentine’s day… and I don’t know why or where the time has even gone since then?!??
So many things have happened and changed over the last 5 months and I have been wanting to share it all with you, but I also needed time to process everything first.
I am currently on my summer vacation from teaching and am in the process of moving into my new house with the hubby and man is it a lot of work and SUPER EXPENSIVE! We are not quite moved in just yet, but most of our stuff is in and we are just waiting on our appliances and shutters to be installed!
CHECK OUT OUR OFFICIAL HOUSE TOUR!
With all that being said, I thought I’d take the time to write a “note to self” to remind myself of a few things…
Making yourself happy should be the number one priority.
When you put yourself and your happiness above everything and everyone else, everything will eventually fall into place. Although you may think you are happy when you are constantly helping and pleasing others, subconsciously, you know you need to help yourself. Think about it.
You should unplug more often.
This is easier said than done, but your mind needs rest, just as much as your body does!
You are always able to change or leave a situation that you know does not match your morals.
You have the power to decide what you agree or disagree with and to make your OWN decisions regardless of what others will think.
Everything will work out.
It always does. And if it doesn’t, that’s okay – it wasn’t meant to be.
If you complain about something, you darn sure better offer up a solution.
If you don’t like a situation, then do not complain unless you have a way to change it. Complaining without any plan of action doesn’t do any good and is just down-right annoying.
Time heals all wounds.
Like all heart breaks, deaths, or any other tragedy, your pieces will begin to fit back together with time. Although I know that the pain will be intense in the moment, eventually you will grow stronger and be able to face whatever it was that made you sad. Trust me, as cliche as it is, it will all get better in time.
Treating people the way you want to be treated is the key to life.
If you want respect from someone, you have to show respect to them and earn it! People are not going to be compelled to help you or even be around you, if you are a nasty, evil person. Think about it…would you want to be around this kind of person? I think not.
Hard work always pays off.
There are so many times that we look to successful people and want to find a quick route to where they are, but in reality, they put their time in too. There are those select few who just get “lucky”, but that is not the norm! When we work hard to get where we aspire to be, we can truly appreciate and enjoy it because we know that we put a lot of effort into making our dreams happen.
So there you go, note to self. Hope these were helpful to you and you can relate. Hope you are all doing amazing and stay tuned for more posts coming soon! XOXO
