Thank You


Over the coarse of me starting my blog I’ve had a lot of positive feed back from people that have been following it. I want to say THANK YOU to all of you who have messaged me saying such nice things. And THANK YOU to anyone that has taken the time to read my posts. It means so much to me to have people support me in doing this blog. I was so scared to post anything to the public so I started by just posting things privately, just for me. It was my new “journal” if you will. I finally got the courage to post something public and I’m so glad I did.

I’ve always wanted to help others in some way and I think on a very small scale I’m helping people by blogging about my life, so I couldn’t be happier about that. In my earlier years I was ashamed of who I was and the poor choices I had made.  I still lived the life I wanted but took people’s criticism a little more personal than I do now.  I guess that comes with growing up.  I’m not really ashamed of who I am anymore.  And I look at those past choices as a learning tool and a way to help others.  So I’m actually proud of my mistakes, if you want to call them that.  I’ve always been one to fess up when I make a mistake even if I know it’s going to hurt someone or make me look bad. I know being honest is most important and being true to myself allows me to grow in my weak areas. I’m not perfect and I know sometimes we like to think we are. We easily place judgement on others for making “bad” or “wrong” decisions because that’s not how “we would to it” or because we swear up and down that would “never happen in my life”. I’ve told myself those exact things before when judging people I know. Which is horrible and I try my hardest to stay away from that way of thinking because those exact same things your judging someone else for just may happen to you as well. So why be so hard on others for their choices? Is it because we like to think we are perfect? That our lives are better than someone else’s because of the choices we’ve made and the choices they have failed to make? I’m just really trying to understand this way of thinking and why we all do it. Why do we judge, criticize, gossip… Why can’t we all just be happy for each other? I understand if someone is making a decision that could harm themselves, of course you’d want to interfere and try to help them but if someone is making a choice to better their life in one way or another or if someone is doing what makes them feel good or makes them happy then why place judgement? Can’t we just be happy for them instead? We are all living our own lives. All very different lives for that matter. What is good for you is not necessarily good for me and vice verse. What you believe I may not. We are all unique and I think that’s a great thing. We can all learn from one another because of that. If we could all just step down off our pedestals and see each other as equals, start loving more than hating and be open to others differences this world would be so much better. Above all else Love one another…
