Let’s think for a second and picture your life as a pair of shoes. The pair of shoes is your life – you want your life to be comfortable and secure.

You don’t want blisters on your feet, or holes in your shoes.
You want the shoes to stay as comfortable and clean as they can, for as long as they can.

It’s the same as your life – you want a life with comfort, filled with love and happiness – no drama, no hurt, no pain. This is ideal; however, the reality is, we all endure some kind of “blister” in our lifetime. What we need to realize though, is that we just need to put a “band-aid” on, protect ourselves, and take care of ourselves. We need to make sure we heal, so that we can experience the good in life with the people we love.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: You need to be comfortable with WHO you are, what you are doing, and who you surround yourself with. It’s about facing the tough decisions, the hurt, the pain. It’s not about how much you have or what you have. It’s about being thankful for all the little things. Show love, kindness, and gratitude because without them, the pair of shoes are going to get worn out, and all that will be left, are blisters. Take care of YOU. ❤️

Ripple Effect

Ripple Effect:

I’m getting pulled under.
Faster and faster.
Deeper and deeper.
Until it all turns black.

I almost can’t breathe.
As I try to scream loud.
Louder and louder.
But, not loud enough.

Nobody hears me.
Nobody sees me.
Nobody cares.
I don’t know what to do.

Then, all of a sudden.
I’m gasping for air.
I see the blue skies,
As I let myself cry.

What just happened?
I do not know.
My life re-transformed.
Once again above waters.

And in that brief moment,
I now know I’ve been wrong.
People do care.
Just not you.

– Sandra Scala

Words for those who are feeling lost.
Let this be some guidance to help you “let go”.

Let go of the hurt someone may have caused you.
No need for explanations. For it’s not worth it.
There is a point when we have to stop asking ourselves “Why?”,
and just accept the silence. Follow our hearts, and find peace…

This rip current is a description of what it could feel like to lose hope.
To lose love. To lose faith.

Some days, may feel long. And I mean, really long.
The type of long that you just can’t get to sleep at night.
You toss and turn, wondering what went wrong.
You feel overwhelmed with emotion.
You don’t know who to talk to about it,
So you lay wide awake, and think.
And think, and think, and think, and think.

If you think too hard, it will hurt.
It will only cause more pain.
More tears. More not-so-good thoughts.

I was in this situation before, where the rip current pulled me down under.
It’s happened twice, both times in Florida….I was terrified!
But, my girls’ faces flashed before me. That’s what I remember
– and today –
they are what gives me the courage to stay focused on the positive.

You have to find your PURPOSE.
You have to find your REASON.
Because you are WORTH it.
There may be that one person who doesn’t see the REAL you,
but there’s ALWAYS that person who does!

And that’s what you need….that’s what counts! ❤️

A Good Heart …

Have you ever felt this way?
Or are feeling this way right now?

“When you have a good heart:
You help too much.
You trust too much.
You give too much.
You love too much.
And it always seems
you hurt the most.”

– Nishan Panwar

You feel taken advantage of, and you ask yourself over and over,
“What’s wrong with me? What did I do wrong? How could they do that to me?”
You do what you do out of the goodness of your heart, and then, it’s just never good enough!

Well listen, you ARE good enough! You are BETTER then good enough, you just have to tell yourself that you don’t deserve that kind of treatment, from anyone, and that you can move on.

Just because someone took (or is taking) advantage of you, your kindness, your “good heart”,
doesn’t mean that you give up. You don’t give up, EVER!!

Love – it’s a part of life most of us crave.
There are going to be people who hurt you, and it will hurt…a lot.
There are going to be people who come and go.
And they just won’t care.
But guess what? You can learn from these people.
Don’t be those people…

There’s another quote, which stands so true…the author is unknown:
“The first to apologize is the bravest.
The first to forgive is the strongest.
And the first to forget is the happiest.”

So, do just that! Find it within yourself to apologize, forgive, and forget.
Even if it’s silently…because YOU is what matters first.
And if you’re not 110%, then it’s going to be hard for you to connect with others, and move on.

I’m not saying it’s easy, or it’s going to happen overnight.
It will get better, but in time. Healing takes time.

Remember to stand up for yourself, and your beliefs.
Find the strength and courage to keep pushing forward.
Keep the goodness in you heart…you got this!! ❤️
