stand tall.

Every day we wake up with a new day, a new to start over to write our own. Each day the sun rises and so do we. We wake up to an awesome day that awaits us. Each day we are blessed with a new seed to grow into a beautiful new tree.

We can have it all just with a new mindset. A new mindset that our “tree” has new leaves fresh and crisp ready for that new day. Our trees are all different in there own ways, constructed vein by vein in each leaf, branch by branch down to the trunk to support and hold up everything. Our tree is special. It’s leaves may shed, to leave us with something bare but that’s just it— they shed for something greater. Day by day we are graced with new. New ideas, new support, new growth. We may run into trouble or doubt but one thing remains: each new leaf to make our tree is beautiful. A tree doesn’t doubt how to grow it just does. Our path and growth is planned for us and we just need to do. Just do what’s best for us in order for us to grow. To grow into something magnificent and detailed in our own unique ways.

This isn’t my typical blog post but I felt inspired by J Lo’s new movie, Second Act and the words just flowed in because we all can have that chance to have a second act. We are not always in control but we can nourish our tree to grow and guide it into something amazing.

If you’re reading this, your tree is special too. You are detailed and wonderfully made. You are developing new beautiful leaves and strong branches to add in supporting the greatest thing: you. You’re tree shouldn’t doubt its ability to be something stronger, something outstanding. It just does. So tomorrow just be. Be you. Be your own kind of beautiful and let your tree stand tall.

Xo,

30 day blogging challenge: my guilty pleasure

Day #4: My Guilty Pleasure


I feel really bad I didn’t stick with my challenge and blog yesterday.  So today is like 2 posts in one!

First, in my last post, I said Sunday I would not complain and took that challenge!  Honestly, when I thought about the day, I did not complain.  Having that in the back of my head and to wake up feeling refreshed as well as positive really made a difference in my day.

Now for today’s answer to what is my guilty pleasure?  Hair and makeup videos.  Yes, hair and makeup videos are one of my favorite things to watch.  You know those videos on Facebook that pop up and are like a minute long and show all of these hair transformations with cuts and colors and have really good dance music?  No? OMG just watch this video.  (To be honest, I just got distracted watching this and had to refocus).  Anyways, I LOVE these videos and if it involves makeup, I’m right there too!  For some reason (maybe it’s my love for beauty products) watching these videos just makes me zone out and stop thinking about everything else.  Sometimes I even watch them when I’m trying to relax or go to sleep.  It is so memorizing what some people can do to not only their hair but also makeup.

I know this was a short post, but I honestly think this is pretty self-explanatory and you should just watch the videos LOL (Plus it’s my day off and I honestly tried to talk myself out of doing this… but I promise I won’t tomorrow!)
