You know those times when you are scrolling through someones Instagram.. and you awkwardly realize you are about a year or 2 deep into their pictures…. Yeah that was me today. BUT… I found this… and it struck me SO hard.. it was like this awakening. It's the most perfect thing.
A little less than a year ago, I decided I was going to stop reading hate. I stopped seeking it out. It's one thing to come across hateful comments on my youtube videos or twitter… But actively seeking it out is another story. One day I decided that it was bringing me down and it was affecting me too much, and I HATED IT. I am an incredibly sensitive person so I had to make a choice that was best for me. I stopped reading it and going to those horrible depths of the internet where trolls lurk... and my life has been SO MUCH BETTER you have no idea. Not reading that unnecessary hate made me realize that what those random people are saying officially has NO IMPORTANCE. If the person they are talking about doesn't hear them… then what they are saying is just going into the universe…. NOT the place they want it most… in my head.
When I read this quote it took me back to where I was a year ago when I stopped reading. This is something that I would consider printing off and hanging on my wall. It's the most beautiful reminder and something I think everyone should read everyday.
YOUR CHOICES ARE YOURS. You can do whatever you want with this beautiful life. You can own your mistakes and own your successes.. thats what makes to so awesome. If you want to make your life amazing.. It's up to you to do that and no one else. If someone wants to hate on you and the decisions you make… it doesn't matter because you can feel proud that you have paved the path that you have… and that includes the GOOD and BAD. I think this is also freeing knowing that making bad decisions is something that you have to own.. and the consequences that come with it is something that you have to deal with. I'm not saying that it a bad or negative way.. but in a completely motivating way. It's okay to make bad choices.. but owning them is part of the process of living a better more positive life.
This quote is probably the most motivating and inspiring thing I have read.. and makes me realize that NO ONE can make my life better.. and NO ONE can make my life worse but me. If someone wants to hate on me and tell me I'm not doing something right GO AHEAD. PLEASE…. WASTE YOUR TIME…. let that negativity POUR out of your mouth until in infects you own life. Because at the end of the day… MY choices are what matters… and that means I will live my life the way I want.. and I will do EXACTLY what makes me happy. I will do what i think is best for my kids, I will do what I think is best for my pets, my husband, my family and ME.
