Open your heart today and love like never before. Give all of yourself to something that brings happiness full circle in your life and let that passion radiate beyond your control. Forgive so that you may be forgiven when you fall short. Extend the same gratitude you expect so that what you put out may come back to you. Forgive yourself for your mistakes and understand no one is perfect. You were created with the understanding that every day will not be as smooth as unicorns and sunflowers. I encourage you to love who you are and focus on the unique characteristics that make you happy. If there’s anything you don’t like about yourself and you have the ability to change it do it. Don’t make yourself unhappy focusing on the flaws the world does not see. That mental abuse you inflict on yourself yields no benefit to your future, but it does make the journey longer and harder you’re traveling. Challenge yourself daily by complimenting yourself on something you love about you. Take it a step further and compliment another woman on something you like about her; whether it be her hair, make-up, clothes, shoes, smile, personality, car, ring, baby, anything that stands out to you that could put a smile on her face. We don’t know what people face in their day-to-day lives, but those kind words could be the simple encouragement they need to keep going. When having a bad day find the good in it; remembering it could be worse. Someone would rather be in your shoes than to deal with what they maybe facing. Never take what you have for granted because it could be gone at any moment. Don’t live your life with regrets because of fear, face the obstacle, and receive the opportunity. You don’t want to look back one day wondering what it would have been if you had taken that leap of faith. So many blessings fill our graveyards that we will never get the chance to know about. I promise you the gift inside of you desires to shine and was instilled in you because the world needs that change. So, put on your big girl panties, face yourself, and remember you can do it. It just takes one step in the direction you desire, and the rest will fall into place as time moves.
