Something that keeps driving us forward is the way we seem to care about a thing. We never want to overstep because it could mean something bad if it happens too fast or in the opposite way you had hoped everything will play out.

There is this little voice in our heads saying that whatever we do will have a significant say in what will happen in our lives, good or bad. Of course, it could be the case but how many times does it actually happen? Even though we always seem to be able to tell ourselves that we only have one chance there is only a select moment that cannot be re-done better and in the correct way. Just because you mess up it does not mean that your life just falls into pieces, rather, you learn and know what you are doing wrong.

At times it takes more than making that same mistake once to understand what you are doing wrong and that you should not be doing it. Sometimes it takes more time to learn than other times.

I am not writing this because I am fearless but because I might be one of the people who is most affected by caring too much.
Just because you believe that you are someone who does not care does not make you one. I learned that the hard way. No matter how little or how big the deed is I find myself paralyzed at times, unable to make a move even though I know that it is when I take that loop that the best things happen in my life. I am well aware that the best things happen outside of your comfort zone yet I find myself in a minor heart attack every time I take a leap because I care way too much.

The reason I write this for you is that not only do I want to better myself, careless and live more I want you to learn from my experiences because they are the only things I am an expert on. This is just me telling you that the world will not end because you sign up for something that may potentially fail. Whatever you may do might better you and your life, no matter what it is. And if it does not better your life you can always get up, brush the dirt off of yourself and start again because you are stronger than you think.

Sincerely,
Melissa

Something came up in my life that I never in a million years thought would resurface. It was something that strongly reminded myself both of how much I have and how much I haven’t changed. It’s like the world was playing with the way that I used to feel and the situation I was on. Looking back at it was all so abstract.

There are so many times in life when you look back and you just realize how different you are, how much you have grown as a person but there is always a part of your past-self that is whispering forbidden words into your ear. Maybe you aren’t so different after all.

It is so easy to call yourself stupid for what you once thought or felt but as soon as you put yourself back into those same shoes it all makes sense, almost as if you are sucked back into the same situation you hated with all of your heart.

Think about it this way; you learn and grow every day, no matter the situation that decided to show up again. You’ll be presented with two options when it happens, either you smile, laugh and let go or you stop in the middle of your tracks and just think about how things would have played out if it would have gone the way you wanted.

But it didn’t and you survived. Everything happens for a reason and the fact that the reminder might have popped up might have just been to show you how much you have grown or to give you a glimpse of what is to come. Never look down upon yourself, past, present or future.

Sincerely,

(This is not a sales pitch though it might sound like one.)

The law of attraction, a subject that has broadly been spoken about throughout the years, especially since The Secret came out. Some people might feel as though it might be stupid and others might believe in it all heartily as I do. But what is it?

The law of attraction is the concept of you being able to shape your life by the positivity of your thoughts, something that may seem like something hard to grasp. It might seem like a concept that is out of this world and one only for the optimists of this world. How many times have you thought about something and it just pops in front of you out of thin air? It has all happened at one time or another. This is the Law of Attraction at work, doing its thing and bringing whatever you summoned into your life to you.

Many of you might have already stopped reading because it sounds like hippie talk, something that I once thought too until I thought a bit harder. Whenever I thought about something really hard, I thought about it truly happening it did and it seems to be the only (somewhat) logical answer. This is exactly why the happy people around us always seem to have the most positive outlook on life because they have attracted it all into their lives.

I know it sounds weird but you truly have to look deep within yourself and search for answers to have a better life. You have to learn to put time aside to just be with yourself and do whatever makes you feel better. When you start setting that regular time aside for yourself you will notice how you grow more and more thankful for everything around you, making you happy for what you have. Thus your life will be more positive because you are letting your positivity sine through.

As said so many times before, you have the power to make your dream life, no matter what. You just have to set time aside to shape your life. Be conscious and make every single second of your life count.

Eating disorder, body dysmorphia, a teen body has a lot of names. We see behavior that is not healthy coming from young people when it comes to food and their bodies. The times you see someone starving themselves, calling themselves fat or training their life away is alarming. Quite honestly, it is behavior that is noticed daily. There is this obsession with having to eat and exercise a certain way to achieve the bodies that we constantly see in media and everywhere we look.

Do not take me wrong, in no way do I mean that you should not strive for a healthier life with good, nutritious food and exercise for more energy and vitality. This will, of course, lead to a good looking body in the long term, one that might look like the people we see on Instagram.
What I am saying is that it should not be something you obsess over. I used to be there. I would hate myself for missing a workout or if I ate something that was a bit more on the sugary side. Whenever that happened I saw it as a failure and that lead that period of my life to be one where I felt so incredibly bad. It was not healthy.

Balance is key. Eat that square of chocolate a day if the bulk of your diet is healthy. Skip that workout if you really are tired, you’ll be back at it tomorrow. It is only when you find a balance that you feel good and it all comes naturally.

No, I am not there 100% there myself but I am working on it every day. It just upsets me to see boys and girls around me, looking at themselves and hating every inch of what they see, punishing themselves for every mistake they make. No one is perfect and you can change how you look like to feel your best but appreciate where you are without starving yourself and without looking down at yourself.

You are beautiful and you are worth it.

We all have our dream life, the life that we ultimately want. We all have this picture in our heads about how it is to look like and how it is going to feel but we always forget one detail; not to worry.

This thought has dawned on me for the last couple of days. The intense worry that we feel is completely ridiculous and misguiding at the same time as it is a feeling that lures us in. We have the tendency to go for the rational thinking of our worry but we are capable of more and we know it deep inside us. you just have to have the courage to believe in yourself and your power to attract what we want into our lives.

I know some of you might feel as though things like The Law Attraction or religion are just jibber jabber but we have all been a part of instances when we have been through things that can not be explained. It is like when you think of something and it happens to you. You made it happen whether you want to believe it or not.

You just have to realize that you make your life, do not let life make your decisions but decide what you want to do with your life without a worry. Put life into a corner and do not let life open up another path. If you want something badly go for it with a positive mindset and discard all of the worries. You are strong and you know it. I am on this journey with you.
