Today’s topic: caring too much

Sometimes, you just need to stop caring. You need to cut your losses and move on. Yes it’s hard, yeah maybe you’re hurting, but that’s not your fault. When you stop caring so much about what hurt you in the first place is when you’ll start feeling better about yourself.

So there, stop being a victim and show the world you’re better than that.

This isn’t my best post, but I’m just impatient today. Good luck.


Wednesday Words of Wisdom IV (09.23.2015)

Today’s topic: follow your heart

Yes, you will get hurt along the way, but in the end it will lead you to be the happiest you’ve ever been.Don’t dwell in the past, look to your bright future.

Don’t waste time over thinking when it comes to your gut feelings. Just do what you think feels right. Do not doubt your feelings, trust them.

Everything happens for a reason, just make sure you’re where you want to be with who you want to be with.

Dear Future Husband;

(For someday, when I meet him and the time is right.)

Even though I may not know you yet, or maybe I do, there are some things I want you to hear. Firstly, I am the sentimental type. I write letters and notes like this in an effort to never forget how I feel at a certain time about a certain thing. So, this letter is a sentiment to you, the man of my dreams and the true love of my life.

Though, you weren’t my first love, and I am probably not yours either, you are the true love of my life. You are the person who has stood by me and never given up on me on any aspect of my life, or our life. You are the person who can handle both my ups and my downs and love me unconditionally through all of them. You are the person who completes me and makes my life overflow with happiness and love.

And though, I may not know you yet, I know these things are true. I may not be perfect, and you know that, but you know I try to be for you. I know you do the same for me, and that’s what makes you perfect FOR me.

Despite all my flaws, my stubbornness, my blonde moments, my needy/emotional days, and my indecisive nature, you are still by my side and that means the entire world to me. Despite all these faults you never stop fighting for me, and you never stop believing in me, even if I’ve given up on myself from time to time. You’ve seen my potential and have shown me how amazing I am. For that, I thank you.

For all that you do for me, I will do my best to do the same in return. I will love you always, and be there for you when you need me, I will take care of you when you’re sick and comfort you during your painful times. I will be a great wife and a loving mother to our future children. I promise my heart will always belong to you, and in return I will take the greatest care of your heart as well.

My dear future husband, you are the most important person in my life. You’ve been there to heal my old wounds and to replace them with the most beautiful memories imaginable. I cannot wait to find you, I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you. You’re out there somewhere and I know when the time is right and the stars align, we will realize it. You’re my soulmate, and I’m waiting for you.

Yours truly,
Stephanie Lynn __________
(fill your last name in the blank, sweetheart.)


What makes someone special?

Sometimes it’s hard to tell what makes a person so indescribably wonderful. All you know is that there is always a person you feel an unexplainable connection to. So why is this person so special?

They give off a certain energy, and you can’t help but be attracted to it. You crave it, you crave that person. You want to talk to them, to spend time with them, and to be there for them.  Even when you don’t want to think about them, their face pops into your head and they suddenly consume your every thought.

This person has impacted you in a way that few others ever have and ever will. This is something you’ll never forget, this is someone you’ll never forget.

At first it seemed like an infatuation, then maybe an obsession, but whatever it is, you can’t shake how you feel about this person. I’m sorry to say, but you never will, not entirely at least.

This person is special because you care.  This person is special because they have made an impact on you. This person is special because they make you think and feel things you are afraid of feeling and thinking.

That’s the secret. Don’t be afraid. Let this person in.

With the connection you feel to them, it’s more than likely that they feel the same connection to you. This is something to celebrate not to run away from.

It is rare to find someone like this. It is rare to find a perfect match, someone who completes you. Someone who makes you a better person. Someone who both terrifies you but also makes you feel like you’re at home.

Don’t run away from this person, embrace them, because what makes them special is their connection to you.

Wednesday Words of Wisdom III (09.16.2015)

This one will be short and sweet.

Today’s topic:don’t dwell on the past.

Why? Because you can’t change it, no matter how much you wish you could. So, what should you do? Let the future happen, just sit back and wait for all of it’s beautiful mysteries to unfold.

Even though you can’t change the past, you can make room for an incredible tomorrow. Anything is possible, just keep an open mind.

Good things come to those who wait, right?

Wednesday Words of Wisdom II (09.09.2015)

Round two of my insightful deep rambling. I have a terrible case of ringing in the ears so this will be interesting; I can’t focus to save my life right now.

Today’s Topic: Optimism

Firstly, if any of my close friends reads this, they know I am anything but the poster-girl for optimism. But honestly, I really think the power of optimism is one of the greatest things in the world. Even when you hit your lowest low and feel like there’s no possible way things can get better, hope can make a world of difference. Telling yourself things will be okay, even when your life is seemingly in shambles, is exactly the thing that will make it okay.

However, at the same time, your optimism must come from within yourself, you cannot rely on others to make you feel better at all times. If you do, you will only push them away. At the same time, do not completely cut yourself off from the people who care, because that also pushes them away.

It can be hard to be optimistic, but that’s what we as people need to do to keep our hopes and dreams alive. No matter how impossible something might seem, it can happen. You just have to try. Even if Master Yoda did say once, “do or do not, there is no try.” SO, go out and DO what will make you happy. Do not wait for it to happen, and if your idea of happiness doesn’t pan out- find a new source of happiness.

Whatever you do, have faith in yourself and your own optimism. Do not always try to rely on others. Self sufficiency is a key to self confidence, which can also be a key to happiness.

You’ve got this.

Wednesday Words of Wisdom (09.02.15)

Today’s topic: Low self esteem & jealousy.

I’ve always been a deep thinker, and I’ve always liked giving advice. Thus, I am making a new category within my blog called “Wednesday Words of Wisdom.” Enjoy.

If there’s anything I’ve learned in the last few years it’s not to be jealous of others. Don’t be jealous of someone because they have something you want, or look prettier than you, or because they have a seemingly perfect life. Because, honestly, I can guarantee they do not think they have a perfect life, they do not think they have everything they want. In fact, they too are probably jealous of others.

Also, consider this: there is a good chance that somewhere out there, someone is jealous of you. Someone out there, maybe someone you know well, probably would kill to have something you have, to look like you do, to have your life.

That brings me to my next point: Self Esteem.

More often than not, I have struggled with low self esteem and low self worth. But guess what? There is only one of me. Just like there is only one of you too. So, if something about yourself is getting you down, think about this instead… Think of everything good about yourself, of the things that make you the person you are.

Your flaws are what make you perfect, and often times, that is what is going to make you stand out and shine.

So, stop wasting your time being envious of others and embrace what you have.

You only get one life, so live it happily and be proud to be yourself.

PS: Wow, those thoughts were way more disorganized than I intended. Where’s my coffee?
