Stay Grateful ❤️

When you walk the sidewalks your walking on, go into buildings, use the elevator, or take the stairs…have you ever thought, it wouldn’t be made possible if it wasn’t for our construction workers.

We should be so thankful for all the things made easy for us. We live in a country where transportation, food, and shelter is easily accessible…we even have WIFI. 

When we open up our fridge there’s food, when we need something we can head to Walmart, when we want to search something up there’s Google.

…some people walk miles for water, miles for food, miles just to barely survive.

“The average distance that women and children walk for water in Africa and Asia is six kilometers (3.7 miles). ” -Water for the Ages (2009)

 
Sometimes we tend to want more, because we compare ourselves to how other people around us are doing, BUT look outside of us, where we are, and realize how abundant our country is, how abundant we are as a whole, we have more than what our eyes can see.

You have more than what most of the world don’t have.

 
Stay grateful ❤

Don’t be a yes girl.

In the past, and sometimes even now, I realized I would say ‘yes’ to a lot of things…whether it’s a favor for someone (big or small), helping someone out (young or old),  having to ‘yes’ to my parents all the time…most of the yes’ I’ve said, actually, ALL OF THE YES’ I’ve said I could say ‘no’ to.

I know myself, for a girl, it might be tempting or easier to be nice or say ‘yes’ all the time. When someone asks me for help, I would immediately say ‘yes’ without thinking about myself, because in my mind saying ‘no’ would be mean (especially when someone needs your help)…BUT I REALIZED THIS, saying ‘no’ doesn’t mean you’re mean, it means you made sure YOU were okay first, and that you had time in your schedule to fit something. Also, you had time to make sure you weren’t forced to say ‘yes’, and to think about the consequences of saying ‘yes’ before making your own decision.

When I was a ‘yes’ girl, my schedule would be packed not because of my own things, but because of other people’s things. I realized I was not happy, I had no time for myself, and I was frustrated. I just had enough and I stopped saying ‘yes’ to people when I thought about myself first.

When you say ‘no’, it doesn’t mean you’re mean, saying ‘no’ is being assertive, it’s about thinking about yourself first before others, it’s about taking care of yourself, it’s about making your own decision, and having a choice.

Your time is precious here, and it’s not for people to take advantage of, don’t be a ‘yes’ girl.

Get used to being uncomfortable.

As an entrepreneur, or a person who has big dreams or goals, you want to see change, you want to see progress all the time…but to see progress, you have to get used to being uncomfortable, doing things out of your comfort zone, and really going for what you want. You DO know what you need to DO, it’s just the fear that’s holding you back. 

Sometimes being uncomfortable doesn’t feel right, it just feels really off, and sometimes you’ll have thoughts like “I don’t want to do this, I’m so comfortable here…” but the discomfort doesn’t go away…right?? Let me ask you a question: Did comfort ever get you anywhere?? NO! Look at where you are now, how you got to where are right now IS because you were uncomfortable, and you did something about it!!

Being uncomfortable with where you are right now, is actually a great opportunity for you to grow, and challenge yourself to step up your game, and take action. Having fears of failing, or the possible ways of failing is normal, but look at it this way, why not think of all the ways you can succeed and not fail, think of all the ways you’re going to make it, and not back down, and all the incredible people your going to connect with, and all the people who have already succeeded before you!! Look your fears right in the eye and say “I’M NOT GOING TO LET YOU STOP ME, I’M GOING TO MAKE IT, AND I’M GOING TO SUCCEED NO MATTER WHAT.”

You have to feel SO CONFIDENT in yourself and in your dreams that you know you’re going to make it, no matter what. So don’t let fear get in the way, but use it to propel you to take action and provide a stronger base for you to grow. Always remember why you started and never back down. No one ever made it to their dreams without being uncomfortable, so get used to being uncomfortable, and just do it! Do what you need to do next to get closer to where you want to be. Know your end goal, and you will make it to the top. Nothing is impossible.

The Value of Life

Life is a gift, never take it for granted.

The AIR, the PEOPLE, the THINGS.

The value of life is just so precious.

DO everything with love because you can.

LOVE everyone with love because you can.

APPRECIATE everything in life because you can.

We should never let fear take over us,

but let FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE propel us.

To reach our goals,

and go beyond our limits.

You only live once,

And REALLY you only live once.

So make the most out of it,

With love ❤️

Empower Love,
