Be Yourself. Everyone Else is Already Taken.

   Love yourself. That's one of the most important rules of life. If you dont love yourself, then you wont be able to know yourself and if you don't know yourself, then neither can anybody else. Be who you are inside because if you tried to be someone else your life would be a lie and you would never have the chance to be as happy as you possibly could be. It would be hard to fall in love with someone else if you didnt already love yourself because how could you expect someone else to love you if even you couldn't? God made you just the way he wanted to. That in itself makes you beautiful. Just remember this next time you look in the mirror and feel like your ugly or wish you looked like someone else. If God wanted you to be another way, then that's how he would have made you. But instead, he made you YOU!  Embrace it, love it, because there is no one else like you. If you know you're beautiful, so will everyone else. Be the best you you can be. Stand up for what you believe and say what you think. Love yourself, be yourself, define youself.


    "I'm not a perfect girl. My hair doesnt always stay in one place, and I spill things a lot. I'm pretty clumsy, and sometimes I have a broken heart. My friends and I fight and maybe some days, nothing goes right. But when I think about it and take a step back, maybe, just maybe, I like being UNPERFECT.."

     Story of my life. I'm not perfect by any means, nor do I want to be. Imagine how boring life would be if we did everything right all the time? I mean, the idea sounds great and all, but really if you think about it, I would be pretty suckish. Everyone would always over-rely on you because they would know you would do things right. Helping people is wonderful, dont get me wrong. But the stress of everyone expecting nothing less than the very best  of everything would be extremely tough. Besides, if you never made any mistakes and nothing ever went wrong, then the chances of you being close to God is pretty slim. You would probably forget to think him for the things you have because everything would be wonderful all the time. You would have no reason to ask for his help, or for forgivness for that matter. That's a big part of forming a relationship with the Lord. I supposse part of being perfect would also include being a perfect christian, but it would be hard if everything went right all the time. Besides that, the excitement of not knowing if everything will be ok keeps life interesting. Let's face it, most of the time things end up just fine anyway but being unperfect is part of what makes life so wonderful! If you mess up, it's ok because as a wise man once said "Plenty of thing's are mistakes, but some mistakes are like seeds and they grow into purposes."

"Oh, The Places You'll Go!"

      "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. Your on your own and you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where you go."

This is yet another quote by Dr. Seuss from his book, "Oh, the Places You'll Go!". His words always inspire me. This quote reminds me of what my parents used to tell me when I was younger. "If your friends jump off the side of the cliff, would you jump to?" Sometimes I wanted to say I would, just to be difficult. I dread growing up and getting out on my own, but this quote reassures me. I do have brains in my head, and I obviously have feet in my shoes. I have the capability of steering myself in any direction I choose. When I get on my own, I will still have the knowledge that I already know so I will be just fine. Sometimes, you may be tempted by other people to take a path in life that you know will only eventually lead to a dead end. You don't have to choose that path just because that's where people are telling you to go. Ultimately, you are the one who decides your where you end up. If you keep this in mind, you will make sure to end up where you desire instead of someplace that will lead to no good. It's your life, live it your way!

Good Apples

Girls are like
apples on trees. The best
ones are at the top of the tree.
The boys don't want to reach for
the good ones because they are afraid
of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they
just get the rotten apples from the ground
that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples
at the top think something is wrong with
them, when in reality, they're amazing.
They just have to wait for the right
boy to come along, the one
who's brave enough
to climb
all the way
to the top
of the tree.

I stumbled across this quote a couple of months ago, and found it quite true. I had never thought about love that way, but being a teenage girl in highschool, it makes perfect sense. All of the boys go for the gorgeous, flirtatious girls that are easy to get...just like the apples at the bottom of the tree. They dont want to work very hard for good girls that they, deep down inside, know that they truly want because they are afraid that they might fall and get bruised. The thought of this scares them, that's why they go for what is easily obtainable to them already. Because of this, the girls at the "top of the tree" feel like they arent good enough or special enough to be loved by any of these boys. What they (well, I guess I should say we) dont understand is that just because they dont feel like they are noticed, they are...and they are just as good as the apples on the bottom. When the right guy is willing to come along and climb all the way up to the top of the tree for you, that's when you realize that all of your time spent waiting and staying true to your values at the top was well worth it.
