Good Morning Everyone!
I know that I write a lot and I post a lot of positive. I do this because I urge you to live your life. I do this because I am constantly pushing everyone around me to enjoy life for everything it is.
Wake up and take in another day that you’re alive. Have fun and help someone. Smile, laugh, hug, and kiss for these positive gestures help bring out the best in not only yourself, but in people.
When you positively impact someones life, both you and the person derive pleasure in knowing something good has happened. If more people acted more generous towards others, our combined effort may make this world a better place.
Personally, there’s nothing that I would change in my life since it shaped me to be me. I’ve had my wins and my losses. I’ve had heartbreak and failure. But it’s the constant appreciating to life itself that makes me positive in my everyday. Don’t dwell in the past, just know you’ll change it in the future.
People who ‘live’ miserable lives aren’t actually living. That’s not life. That’s simply existence.
So my question to you, and to everyone out in this world… In your own perspective and deep thought…
What does life mean to you?
How do you cherish your life to the fullest?
Is their anything that you would change in you life if you had the chance to?
To get that first big break, you can’t just brag that you’re “GREAT”… You must prove you have the talent.
There’s no easy way to anything worth having, and as much as one might argue with me about it - hard work and being a good person gets you places.
I get emails every day asking me about my “secrets”… There is no secret to anything I will ever do. I work hard. I give my life to what I do everyday, and I treat everyone with respect.
Most people work at keeping their job, rather than doing a great job. Don’t be a former, be the latter with everything you do and continue to grow.
"Some people dream of success, others make it happen"…
Are you willing to grab life by the horns on a daily basis and seize each day? Are you willing to put in the effort, be criticized, accept that you’re wrong, learn from mistakes, and continue to work forward?
Stay positive, and don’t ever give up. You ARE great - you just need to prove it to the world…
Sometimes it’s a good friend, or it could be a beloved family member or even someone you hardly know. People from all parts of your life can have a large and negative impact on your relationship simply by being disapproving.
Your sister may not like your wife, your BFF might think that your new beau is uncool and even your parents can cast aspersions on the one you have chosen to spend your life with. When this happens, steps must be taken sooner rather than later to prevent any type of wedge between partners.
The two of you have to be of the same mind on this one. You can’t allow anyone to split the two of you in spirit or in any other way. For example, if your parent criticizes your spouse, you need to say something like “Thanks for your concern, but I refuse to listen to negative comments about the person I love. You are allowed your opinion, but please keep it to yourself.”
If the offender chooses to keep hammering away, then you need to say that you care for him or her but that you are getting off the phone now or need to leave. This will have a profound effect on the purveyor of the bad vibes and will convey how serious you are about keeping your relationship on the positive track.
Couples have to work together against any forces that try to break them apart. Upon occasion, an old lover may call to take the temperature of his or her ex, asking questions about the current paramour and perhaps dropping a line about how he or she misses you and how well he or she is doing despite the loneliness. This is a trap to get you thinking outside your relationship, and if you take that step, not only will your partner feel it but you will also create some distance in your intimacy.
Such interlopers need to be informed immediately that you are happy with your life and partner and that there’s no need to call or contact you if all the person wants to do is see if you’re looking for a hookup. Such opportunities are available elsewhere.
Your relationship is a type of sacred trust that must be defended. This is not to say that if your partner is behaving badly or is abusive that you should stay and ignore the warnings of those around you. But most relationships are worth the work it takes to keep them that way. Creating a strong connection and being a united team is the best way to maintain what you have and build your love to make your connection even stronger.
It’s the “you and me against the world” attitude that can make the difference between a relationship that fails or one that succeeds. Those who engage in this mutual-protection policy have longer-lasting and happier lives together. Truth is, when you know someone has your back, life is much easier.

Its interesting to think back upon a full year of living and to realize how much self analysis and knowledge can be gained from doing so.
Life is a story, a book your always writing and that you are in charge of directing the beginning middle and end. Tell the story you wish to tell, for it is truly up to you. Others and things may help develop your story and influence it but you just have to realize it truly comes down to oneself to decide how you wish to live life.
Im choosing mine to live carefree, love every moment, hardship, falling in love, losing friends, gaining friends, rebuilding the past, forgetting what isn’t important, good, the bad and the ugly. Love and embrace it all and to be able to find the power to always come back out on top.
The last year taught me that growing up can be hard, but it can be very so much worth it if you give it the chance, don’t get overwhelmed and remember that you are always the one in charge of writing your own story.
In this cruel world we must be careful because some people are only in lives for their own pleasures and desires. Some will tell you things that they think you want to hear so that they may get out of you whatever it is that they desire. If we want to avoid dealing with deceptive people, we must be willing to do a number of things.
First, when a person shows you who they really are, believe them the first time. This is not to say that some people can’t change, and that people won’t make mistakes, but sometimes you can avoid a lot of trouble if you are able to cut people off in the very first moments you meet them, and notice their character probably wont help to influence your life in a positive manner.
Second, we have to be willing to take a stand for ourselves. If a person continues to tell you one thing, and you notice that their actions arent usually representative of their words, then you must take note of this, and use this as a warning sign that this person may not be who they really say that they are.
Don’t spend all of your time living confined, without making new friends, and taking new risks, but do be careful of whom you put your trust in, not everyone has your best interests at heart.
A Drive Through The Forest.
Woke up, had some coffee, and took the car for a drive through England. I have been living here for a month now, and the season is just beginning to take its shape. The rich greens, vibrant yellows, and the blue-bells are coming out to say hello!
It’s almost dream like how much the colors capture the forest, but even more of a dream when you step outside to only the sound of birds and the wind.
Much Love From England,

It’s a part of life to be betrayed at one point or another. Whether in the confines of a romantic relationship or by family or friends, having our trust taken advantage of and our hearts broken is going to happen at some point. It’s just a sad truth we have to face sooner or later. But after we’ve been betrayed and we realize our relationship is worth holding onto, how do we begin to trust this person again? How do we move past the feelings of paranoia and suspicion to fully accept their movements and actions as truth once we’ve been proverbially stabbed in the back?
The short and simple answer would be to just do it. We just give our trust back to them and hope they don’t double-cross us again. But that isn’t very realistic, is it? When we’ve had our heart broken—through being cheated on, lied to, or a million other ways—it’s extremely hard to offer our full trust to this person who went behind our back and did whatever dirty deed bruised us so deeply. Instead, we’d rather hold closely to our love and our trust so as to protect ourselves from being hurt again. Rather than let this person back into our lives with full power and privilege, we offer very small bits of ourselves while holding tight to our wariness and suspicions. Because that’s how we feel we’re supposed to react. It’s about self-preservation, and to persevere means to protect ourselves.
Only, this protecting of ourselves can usually manifest itself in unhealthy ways. We go through their phone when they’re out of the room or we demand their whereabouts at all times. We’re so worried about being hurt again that we allow our insecurities to consume us and make us act a little cRaZy. And you know what? That’s expected—and it’s almost acceptable.
Once we’ve been betrayed, it’s our choice to keep our relationship alive or do as Feist said and let it die. Choosing to sustain the relationship and hold onto what we had means we believe this person is worth the betrayal they’ve put us through. It means we believe that our coupling means more than the trouble we’re now going through.
It’s with that in mind and heart that we must learn to trust again.
It isn’t easy or simple to trust someone again. It takes time and it takes a very serious effort. We’re humans and our human hearts don’t enjoy or appreciate being bruised or broken. So we protect ourselves and we hesitate to trust again. And yet, deciding that the relationship is worth holding onto means we have the intention of giving them all of us again someday. But can we truly do that if we’re going through their phone every day or constantly checking where they are or what they’re doing? No, we can’t. Doing those things means we’re feeding that paranoia that came about through their betrayal. And while we should forever be protecting our hearts from those who would do us harm, it’s prudent of us to begin taking those small steps back to trusting this person we care so much about. That means ignoring that little itch in the back of our conscience that tells us to go through their phone. It means trusting them in the small moments so that we can build to the bigger times and subjects. It means giving them the tiny bits of our heart again and again until we’ve built our trust, love, and patience back to where it was before they wounded us.
It isn’t a simple task, but if we truly believe this person is worth what it takes to make our relationships whole again, we’ll begin giving of our trust and of ourselves until we fully trust them again. It may not happen over night or even in a number of months, but if we can begin making those sacrifices now, we’ll crawl back to where we were once before. And that’s where we can find the happiness and fulfillment we once had.
