I am Fierce

Standard

I don’t handle compliments regarding my strength very well. I don’t feel strong, I don’t feel brave, I don’t feel dignified or graceful and I think it’s because half of the time I feel like I’m a fraud.
Most of the time people see only the outer shell which is a smile, laughter and jokes. If I do my hair, my makeup and I wear my poker face just right, no one has a clue what’s really going on.
I’m a mess. I am a walking disaster. There is so much going on underneath the surface regarding my health that’s sometimes I have no idea how I’m still standing upright.
But at the end of the day, I want to be somebody who overcomes all of the obstacles and tribulations put on my path.
I want to be somebody who continues to fight and I want to find the silver linings beneath all of the heavy, dirty, messy hardships this life keeps throwing at me.
Life is hard and delicacy won’t be enough. I’m choosing to be fierce.

Authentic Self

Standard

Unfortunately when other people are miserable, their main goal is to make everybody else miserable. It’s like a sickness. It becomes a disease.

We’re all human and we all have things to deal with. There’s no sense in trying to bring other people down just because you yourself are down.

Instead, why not look for those who are happy and positive and try to have a little bit of that rub off onto you.

Personally, when I’m down, I try to find some uplifting people and messages that I can apply and try to boost my life up! Being sad and miserable is not living, it’s not fun and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone else no matter how poorly I feel.

“Because messed up people try to MESS you up.”

In the middle of all the chaos, remember that how someone else treats you doesn’t determine YOUR value. What they say or do doesn’t lessen who you are. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone and you don’t have to impress anyone. Just be who your authentic self. Be who God made you to be.

TRUE Friendship

Standard

REAL friendship CANNOT be broken.

true-friendship-friendship-day_1057-1363

“A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself — and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what they really are.”

Through thick & thin, through madness & chaos, through beautiful & hideous…REAL stands strong.

“True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance.” Henry David Thoreau

If I call you “friend,” it MEANS SOMETHING. You can test me, question me, bully me, hate me…bring it. I won’t turn my back on my friends.

“True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island… to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.” – Baltasar Gracian
