Pain is only temporary

When one door closes, another one will open. This is why we must never give up no matter how discouraged or hopeless we are feeling. Whether it’s getting laid off from a job that you devoted years of your life to or a failing relationship where your partner no longer feels the same, know that pain is only temporary.

There is always something better out there waiting for you.

As cliché as it is, time really does heal all wounds. Even though it does, don’t rely solely on time. It is what you choose to do and how you make use of your time that will help you move forward. If you choose to wallow in pain and hold grudges instead of learning from the experience and exploring what the world has to offer, then you will never fully heal.

Always have trust and faith in yourself, and trust me… you will find yourself in a better place than you ever were before.

Beauty

Beauty is not whether you have the straightest, whitest teeth. Nor is it whether you have the clearest skin or a perfect body with a slim waist, wide hips, and full bust, but it is when you are able to wake up in the mornings with a smile on your face because you are content with your life. Beauty is when you are able to shower the people around you with endless affection because you have so much love to give. Beauty is when you are able to wake up in the mornings and go to your job because it is something you enjoy to do and not because you feel like you have to. Beauty is when you aren’t afraid to look stupid in front of your friends whether it’s slipping on ice and falling straight on your face, or dancing off-beat to a trap song that you love. Beauty is when you care about what’s going on in the world and you want to make a difference in people’s lives. Beauty is when you give without expecting anything in return because you truly care about others’ well-being. Beauty is the values that you hold so dear to you, because it is what makes you who you are. Beauty is embracing that you’re different and you’re strong enough to refuse to compromise yourself for anyone. Beauty is uplifting others around you to be the best that they can be instead of bashing and bringing others down. Beauty is making mistakes but instead of giving up — you learn. Beauty is to work on improving yourself everyday.

Beauty is accepting that no one is perfect, including yourself, and that’s perfectly okay because your imperfections are what makes you you. You are what makes you beautiful, and don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
