Stop the bullying!

I posted a video on my YouTube Channel, because I want to make people aware that bullying is very serious these days, especially for children.

When children are bullied, it leaves them feeling sad, angry, hurt, confused, and sometimes – suicidal. They start feeling very anxious and some even get depressed…easily.

I talk about this topic because it’s not right and it’s not fair.

What ever happened to kindness and “real” friendships.
What ever happened to showing kindness and respect?

I won’t get into it here in my article because I am hopeful that you reading this, will watch my full video, and spread the word.

Please help raise awareness for the kids who can’t stick up for themselves – who can’t because of what other kids will think.

Please help raise awareness for the kids who just try to be happy and live a “normal” life. The kids who do know the difference between a real friend and a fake friend, because let me tell you – those are the kids who will be your best friend!!

Here's my video:

Happiness and Kindness…

When you are happy with yourself, you are happy with others.

Sandra Scala – The Mind, Untangled.

It’s not about being happy for others. It’s about making sure you are happy with yourself, and WITH others – including WHO you are, who you surround yourself with, and what you are doing! ❤️

A beautiful path …

“Some beautiful paths can’t be discovered without getting lost.” – Erol Ozan

Life is a journey, and it is YOURS to discover!

Even on the most beautiful path, you can lose your way, but keep pushing yourself forward – you CAN find your way!

Sometimes, it may feel like the path never ends, but getting lost doesn’t mean you give up, right?!

A friend of mine thought this picture was of the Magnolia Lane – the path to Augusta National (which is apparently, a famous path).
However, this picture was taken in Savannah, Georgia (United States). My husband and I had taken a detour (on our way home from our honeymoon), and stopped to see our friends we had just met on a Cruise. They showed us around, and this place is the Wormsloe Historic Site. It is also seen in the movie “The General’s Daughter”. An absolutely beautiful spot!!

Life gets tough sometimes, throwing you in different directions. Don’t get discouraged, even through those times. There are many choices in life that come your way, you just have to stay focused and positive, and follow the right path. Remember – everything happens for a reason …

YOU decide what path you want to take – I say choose the beautiful one, and stay positive – you’ve got this! ❤️

Your Worth…

“If they don’t see you for your worth.
Then they’re not worth seeing you at all.”
– Sandra Scala

No – it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve tried explaining your point of view, and they just don’t get it. It doesn’t matter how hard you work at your job, and they just don’t get it.

It doesn’t matter how many times you scream inside your head, “why can they not just understand my point of view?” or “why can they not just understand that I AM the reason that…”.

Let me tell you something – there are going to be people in your life who will not understand your perception, or your hard work, period. They will not understand your worth towards that relationship. Or your worth to that job. Or your worth as a friend. And you know what? They don’t deserve an explanation from you, or your time. You have tried your best…

There are going to be people who take advantage of you, and there are going to be companies who will work you hard until you are just too darn overwhelmed to do anything about it anymore – because in your mind – you have shown your worth. You have given your dedication.

Think about it for a second – are they really worth your time? Your aggravation? Your stress? Are they really “seeing” you for who you are, and are they appreciating the fact that you are worth it? That you are the reason…..(whatever the reason may be).

I’ve been hurt (emotionally, mentally).
I’ve been used. Over and over.
And there comes a point when enough is enough.
There is only so much your body can handle.
So, what can YOU do?
The people who hurt you, who used you, who never saw your true worth….
let them go, and put it behind you.

It’s not about how many friends you have, or how many people you feel you need to prove that you are worthy.

You need to BE and FEEL worthy within yourself.

The people who truly do understand and “see” your worth, will stand by you, and will make you feel GOOD. Once you are happy within yourself, you can BE happy with your surroundings and the people who are IN your life.

Surround yourself around people who are true to you, even through your dark times. The ones who will take the time to understand your situation. The ones who put a smile on your face, make you laugh, make you cry (in a good way! 😉). The ones who appreciate you for the joys you bring in their lives, as they do yours. ❤️

YOU are YOU!

Here is some MOTIVATION for those who are struggling – be YOU, and as long as you are kind, compassionate, loving – that’s what counts!

Beauty defined …

“Having limited vision does not define my perception of beauty.
Rather, it allows me to appreciate what life has to offer, even through the darkness.”

I drew this picture, a few years ago when I shared my story at a church. It is a description to show the comparison of what I see, to what a person with regular vision would see.

Sure, there’s so much that I can’t see unless I shift my eyes and focus.
Sure, it would be nice to see what others can see.
Yes, I went through my phase where I didn’t have the energy to do anything or see anyone.
And yes, I still do get anxious at times when my mind overthinks.

But I also know that “it’s okay not to be okay”.
I know that I am not the only one, and that I can reach out to people I trust.
I know that as long as I take a day at a time, that’s the best I can do, to appreciate the NOW. And so can you!

Beauty, to me, is about self-love and self-acceptance.
Beauty, to me, is about facing your demons.
Beauty, to me, is about being kind and showing compassion.
Beauty, to me, is about what’s on the inside, in your heart.

I know most people feel like they have to meet certain standards, and maybe it’s because of something that has happened to them in their past, or maybe it’s because of a current situation. But wait right there – it doesn’t mean that you can’t start fresh. You can find your true beauty within, and you can find a way to happiness. It may take time, but with the right people by your side, your light will shine!

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you’re not beautiful, or you’re not good enough. Those kind of people need to wake up and smell the coffee, because you are so worth it! ❤️

Overcome fear …

“sometimes, things in life need extra planning…especially when fear creeps in, and you just need that extra support to pull you through.” – Sandra Scala

When fear creeps in, remember to breathe, and ask for what you need.

Don’t hide.
Don’t worry.
Don’t stress.
Don’t feel ashamed.
And don’t be embarrassed.

There is always a solution, and someone to talk to who will listen as you express your fears.

One of my fears is traveling alone, especially lately, as it’s much harder adapting to unfamiliar surroundings because of my vision loss.

Constantly worried about where I step, who’s going to walk in front of me not knowing I have vision loss. And even though I can’t see people out of the corner of my eye like most people can, I sense them around, and feel as if they are watching me (since I really don’t look blind, unless I have my dog or cane with me).

So, I will leave this thought with you…

Communication is one of the most valuable components in relationships, and friendships. Keep an open mind, and just be there, even if just to listen. It means a lot, and could make a big difference in someone else’s life.

Remind someone just how much you value them today! ❤️
