There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they’re necessary to reach the places we’ve chosen to go.
We all have things in life that make it seem hard…and we all have people that do things to us in life that seem even harder to forgive but through the grace of God and his love it’s possible. Matthew 6 tells us how can we expect our Heavenly Father to forgive us if we don’t even forgive those that sin against us. When I was a child I thought as a child but when I became a man/woman I put those foolish things away.
You are not a backup plan. You are worth more than someone’s second choice. You can’t force yourself to stop loving someone, but you can tell yourself you deserve better. Never settle for second best. Always look out for number one because you can’t expect to be someone else’s priority if you aren’t your own. #PutYourselfFirst
I do not care what car you drive where you live. If you know someone who knows someone who knows someone. If your clothes are this years cutting edge. If your trust fund is unlimited. If you’re an A-list, B-list or never heard of you list. I only care about the words that flutter from your mind. They are the only thing I will remember you by. I will not fall in love with your bones or skin. I will not fall in love with the places you have been. I will not fall in love with anything but the words that flutter from your extraordinary mind.
When nobody else celebrates you learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.
This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soulmate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”
