You know what they say: April Showers Bring May Flowers. In gloomy weather, I love to wear a pop of color. I like to think of it as a reminder to stay positive. Whether it’s a bright color or a fierce print, it’s a great reminder that no matter what the gloomy circumstances are I need to stay focused on positive things.
I think the same attitude can be taken toward life. Even when life isn’t going the way you planned, you still need to stay positive. When circumstances are less than what you expected, it’s so important to have a positive reminder. For me I always think about what God has already done for me. I think about the times He healed me. I think about the times He granted me with the grace to get through certain situations. Thinking of the good things motivates me to move forward with a positive attitude regardless of my circumstances.
Do you ever feel like everyone is busy being the same? You know, trying to fit in or look “normal”. When I was younger, I was so afraid of sticking out. I knew then that I was different and unique but didn’t want to be made fun of for the way I dressed. So I tried my best not to stick out. One day I realized that my uniqueness was a gift! It was a talent of mine. I think we all have gifts and talents but sometimes we are so busy comparing ourselves to our friends or what we see on tv that we lose what makes us so unique. So I’m taking to you. Whoever you are, know that being different is okay. Know that being “quirky” or “weird” is a good thing. So the next time someone calls you different, take it as a compliment and hold your head up high.

It was one of those days for me. I didn’t sleep well, burned my breakfast and showed up to present at a school over an hour early lol. I was just off my game today. I started to really beat myself up inside over my mistakes when I remembered…be nice! Growing up, you hear “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” or when you get married you hear ” love is patient, love is kind.” I was always told those things in regards to others but what about how you treat yourself? What about making sure you are kind to yourself? Your thoughts become your words and eventually your actions. If you’re not kind to yourself, who will be? It starts with you! Lighten on yourself and give you a break…and remember…if Britney made it through 2007 you can make it through today!
