Finding Balance

I started out 2020 promising myself I would blog more and create content that I am passionate about. Fast forward a few weeks into the New Year, and I found myself in a ball of stress for many reasons. I kept thinking to myself, I thought 2019 was the bad year, when is 2020 going to give me a break?? And to be honest, it hasn’t. I’ve definitely been dealing with a lot of personal stress, hence the reason I have been absent from my blog and not fulfilling one of my goals for 2020. There have been times that I just wasn’t in the mood to sit down and write or even come up with a fun post for Instagram (I know that’s a shocker). But as I have taken some time to reflect and cope with the stresses I have going on, I’ve realized that I need to find balance.

Balance is important with everything. Whether it’s focusing on your health or a relationship, everything goes back to making sure you have balance. For example, eating healthy is important, but I’m obviously going to eat that chocolate cake once in a while because I love sweets. In my opinion, I have lacked balance for a while, but I am finally taking a step back and realizing that I need to make a change. I need to make more of an effort to take care of myself and leave other thoughts to last.

I’ve come to terms with my need for balance because at the end of the day, it’s my hobbies, health and more that will make me happy, so why not make sure they take priority?

Make sure that you take the time to reflect and focus on the things that are going to make you happy and healthy.

The once in a lifetime kind of people.

“The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw the clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you, simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of people.”

Someone very dear to me today told me that change is nothing to be scared of; it’s something to embrace. That people will leave your life only to make room for the new, and that the ones who remain are meant to stay forever. He has opened my eyes to realize something that I have always known, but never understood.

Times may make you sad and feel like giving up, but remember someone you love is always there to lift you up and guide you. I, today, felt the same way, until he picked me up and told me to focus on the good memories and move forward, ready to meet the new.

I am so grateful for the wonderful people like that in my life. The support for everything I do, including my blog makes me so happy and proud. Do not forget the people that help you and make you who you are. Family, friends, boyfriends, it does not matter. Love those around you and keep the positivity flowing!

Beauty isn’t just on the outside; beauty is how you make others feel and how you feel yourself!

Just a little post to brighten your day and damper your worries!

Quote of the Day!

No one is perfect! Those who say they are cannot accept the fact that imperfections exist in the world! Love yourself and who you are! Never let someone bring you down and ruin your day! Stay positive! Life isn’t about achieving perfection; it’s about discovering a path that you want to lead! So many people try to achieve something that in our realities are unattainable. Don’t try to imitate their life because it is not one that we would want to live! Find your own path and love every minute of it! Realize that what you want to achieve is perfect for you, and only you! Relax and think about what is really important in life: family, health, beauty, love and positivity! Those are my philosophies… What are yours?

Stay beautiful and happy no matter what the situation may be. Tomorrow will always bring something new and bright!

Beauty isn’t only external; it’s internal too. The more beautiful you are on the inside, the more it’ll show on the outside! Stay positive and love yourself and those around you! Show your beauty and strength and kill them with kindness! Love your life and live everyday to its fullest. Lots of love!
