This is a hard one. Especially as a Mama. I saw this quote yesterday and it touched me. Think about it. You CAN do anything! Anything you put your mind to! BUT... NOT everything. Everything is too much. Don’t spread yourself too thin. Like I said though, it’s a tough one 😉
It’s easy to get caught up in the everything. #momlife#loveyourself#focus#youcandoanything

This past weekend I was blessed to hear a message by Pastor @b_wattz that reminded me about being set apart. A lot of people will do all they can to fit in, rationalizing behaviors not authentic to who they are just to be “liked”. I rather be loved and respected by a few than liked by all. 📷: @sneakpreviewphotos
💌"I’ll always be one call away. If you need a friend to talk to. If you need someone to listen to you and understand you.
I’ll always be one plane ticket away. If you’re in trouble, if you need someone by your side, if you need someone to hold your hand, you can always count on me and I’ll always be there for you. No matter how long it’s been since we’ve seen each other, no matter how long the distance is between us.
I’ll always be near. I’ll always find you.
I’ll always be ready for you. I’ll drop everything for you. I’ll forget my own problem and take care of yours. I’ll forget it all when you need me because I promised you that I’ll be there when it rains and I’ll be there when it shines and I don’t break my promises with you. I can’t break my promises with you.
I’ll always be there for you, all you have to do is ask.
Because at one point, you gave me life. At one point, you made my heart happy and at one point you were all my prayers answered and you were the main reason behind the best years of my life. And it’s hard for me to know that you might be suffering and I’m not there to help. It’s hard for me to know that you’re alone.
But I’ll always be there to remind you that you’re not alone. I’m here. I’ve always been here. I’ll always be here. And I know we don’t always stay in touch or say what’s in our hearts but I hope you know that even if I don’t say it much, even if I don’t show it, I’ll always be close to you. I’ll always care about you. I’ll always want to help you when you need someone." Via~ @moonlovers___

💌"When I ask you about your first love, I am always secretly hoping that you will say your own name. Now wouldn't that be beautiful- to above all else, have a heart that was proud of itself."

💌"Tell me the truth, did I even matter to you?
Or was I just a dash in a sentence to you? A pause before you reach the next best thing? Was as I just someone to pass the time? Was I just a nameless face to you? Is that how you justify your actions?
Did you even care about me as a person? Because I cared.
I cared too much. You cared too little.
If I mattered to you, you wouldn’t have left me feeling worthless. I wouldn’t be left wondering where I stood. I wouldn’t have to hope today would be a good day. One where you actually reach out.
If I mattered you would have told me how you felt. You would have been completely honest. You wouldn’t have kept such huge secrets from me. You would have let me into your life, instead of hiding it from me.
Instead of making me feel stupid, afraid to ask questions. Afraid to open up. Afraid of learning something that I already knew deep down.
You took my kindness for weakness. You knew how to push me. You knew how to get what you wanted. You knew how I felt. And you used that to your advantage.
I don’t think you even realized what you were really doing.
How much pain you were actually causing.
Tell me the truth, did I even matter to you?
You mattered to me.
This wasn’t a joke to me. I caught feelings. And I’m usually one to push those feelings away.
You caught me at a weak point.
And now you crushed me.
Tell me the truth, was this your plan all along? To hook me in? To get me where you wanted, knowing fully well you would never have me?
If you really cared, you would grow up. You would talk to me like an adult. Tell me the truth.
But actions speak louder than words.
And my answer lies in that.
I never mattered.
And I’m slowly realizing that. “

💌"Look at the stars – It won't fix the economy. It won't stop wars. It won't give you flat abs, or better sex or even help you figure out your relationship and what you want to do with your life. But it's important. It helps you remember that you and your problems are both infinitesimally small and conversely, that you are a piece of an amazing and vast universe."

💌"I miss you” he said, Words I wanted to hear from you for so long I wanted to scream “I miss you too”, my heart wanted to jump out of my chest and wrap its arms around you I wanted to tell you that I never took your toothbrush out of the bathroom and no one took your spot on the left side of my bed I wanted to tell you everything was the way you left it and it can be all yours if you wanted Oh god, how I wish I could have. But I can’t forget the way you left with no hesitation I can’t forget how I saw a flash of a person I didn’t recognize and the person you were afterwards was cruel I can forgive you- we both knew I did before you asked, but I can’t forget.

💌"Life is nothing but moments. That fight you had with your best friend is just a moment. The time you were up all night finishing a project is just a moment. The night you watched the sunset with the boy you thought you were going to marry is just a moment. The road trip you spent with your friends singing to throwbacks is just a moment. Every up and down and everything in between is just a moment that passes with time. You may remember these moments and you may not, but what you will remember is the people you spent them with and the way you felt. The way she made you laugh, the way he made you cry and the way they made you feel like you were on top of the world when you were nowhere but with your best friends. All of these moments and feelings and people combine to make up a bigger moment that we call life. In all of eternity, our life is just a moment. Appreciate the moment you’ve been given and the people that you’ve been given to spend it with, because no matter how beautiful or tragic a moment is, it always ends. So hold on a little tighter, smile a little bigger, cry a little harder, laugh a little louder, forgive a little quicker and love a whole lot deeper because these are the moments that you will remember when you’re old and wishing you could rewind time, not a single thing lasts forever, so you better damn well enjoy it before it’s gone.” — victoriaquance

💌"Trust that some of the best days of your life haven’t even happened yet. There are going to be parties that leave you dancing until 6am, spontaneous adventures that teach you more than you ever learned in a classroom. There are going to be nights that will stay burned beneath your eyelids, memories that dance underneath your skin. Life is going to exceed your expectations, it is going to astonish you with its timing.
Remember — you have not felt it all. The world still has so much left for you" –Bianca Sparacino "

💌 “Being happy?
It's something we all want to be but most of us only pretend to be. Maybe happiness is nothing but buying a new book or having a cup of coffee by the window or plugging in your earphones to hear your favourite song or watching a sunset or a new tv show or going for midnight drives or getting wet in the rain or getting yourself a bunch of balloons or picking up a bouquet from the flower shop or receiving a text from your loved ones or spending an evening with your bestfriend or going shopping or just being happy for you woke up to another beautiful day. Happiness isn't a big thing, it's a trillion little things. Maybe you just have to live for the small things. Those are the things to stay alive for, those are the things that can only happen when you put down the bottle of pills, when you start noticing the light on the darkest of days and when you believe in optimism. Those are the things to wake up for and I swear to God they're worth it. Happiness is an inside job. Take a minute everyday to smile. Smile at the beauty of the world, how surprising life can be, simplicity of being happy with who you are. Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy. When you're finding time everyday just to be happy, you will find joy in all things. You know you're winning when you're happy for no reason, when you no longer attach your happiness to anyone or anything, when you're genuinely happy. Happiness is a habit cultivate it, throw it around like confetti. Be happy consistently and intensely. Be happy regardless of what it looks like to others. Be wholeheartedly happy for life is too short to to unhappy."

💌”Love someone who doesn’t see your struggles as an inconvenience. Someone who doesn’t feel pestered by your problems because they know your problems aren’t something you asked for or ever wanted. Someone who understands that if you could make these bad things go away, you could.
Love that person.
The person who won’t quit. The person who won’t make you feel bad for feeling lost, or alone, or tired. Who won’t guilt you for not feeling like yourself. Love someone who just wants to help, someone who won’t stop loving you when they realize maybe they can’t.
Love someone who doesn’t force you to be anyone other than who you really are, even if some days you don’t know who that person is.
Someone who knows when your happiness is genuine. When your smile happens just because something was so light and joyous that it made you forget about all of your troubles for just a moment. Love someone who brings that smile out of you. Love someone who can make you happy for just a second in the hours you feel your worst.
Love that person.
Love someone who is there for you. Someone who knows the difference between saying they’ll be there, and actually doing it. Love someone who keeps their promises, someone who doesn’t make them if they know they can’t be kept.
Love that person.
The person who isn’t in and out of your life, but the person who stayed. Because when someone wants to be with you, they will be, and while love has its difficulties, real love happens simply. Real love is felt without doubts, without second guessing. It’s felt with certainty and comfort.
Real love is the person who won’t give up on you, the person who loves you so incredibly much, they wouldn’t even know how. Love that person. “
