Two things I Learned in My Teen Years

Hello Everyone ☺️

I have lately been nostalgic about my teen years. I guess being 25 years-old makes me want to reminiscing about my years growing up in Orange County. 

Whenever I think about my teenage years, I think of the two things that I learned, the first is having self-confidence in my physical image, and in my own self that I can accomplish my own dreams and goals. Then the second one is not letting other people’s negative comments and opinions about me bring me down.  

In high school I would often tell my parents that I wanted to be an actress and be on movies, and television shows; they thought I was just in a phase of dreaming big and not thinking realistically in choosing a career. But I honestly did want to study acting and be a professional. I took two years of theatre in my sophomore and senior year of high school to prove my parents that I seriously wanted to study acting as a career and job, but I made the huge mistake and regret of letting my mom tell me not to study acting because it wasn’t a realistic career for me to take. I listened to her instead of taking the big risk of going on my own to study acting. 

I have learned to not let other people, such as my mom make desicions for me based on what I should do in my life. I have learned to think for myself and what I want to do in my life. 

It is important to have the freedom and happiness to choose what career or job we want to do in life, no matter what friends, family, or others say. Loving my true self is important too. Oftentimes in high school and middle school, I would often wish to be good-looking and perfect as other girls in magazines or in my school, but it took me a long time to love, and appreciate my own outer beauty. I have come to love my petite height, my younger-than-my-age physical image, my imperfect nose, and my bushy, frizzy curly black hair. I am done wishing I could be perfect, those days of being miserable about my image are long gone. 

Now I love and embrace my imperfect self. 🙂❤️

New Year, New Me

2017 is here bringing me joy and excitement at what is to come my way. I wait for the coming months. 

I wake up with positive energy and good vibes. I want to start anew, make new memories this year, learn new things that I never though I would learn, create new and rewarding experiences, be open to change continuously, and seek new ways to be a better person each day. 

Of course, I will struggle along the way, but those struggles will never keep me from flying up high to the mountain of happiness. 

Keeping it Positive

Hello Everyone :-)!

I have a small daily book of positive quotations that I like to read to keep myself motivated so here is a quote I want to share with you on this glorius Sunday afternoon.

“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.” -Herm Albright

There are people in this world who are negative all the time and those people do not understand people who are positive all the time, they think that the positive people are just being annoying.

I generally try my best to smile at others when they are feeling negative, just to see how they react. It is about spreading positivity.

Even with some of the crabbiest people I know-maybe especially with the crabbiest people I know-I am going to stay positive today. It will be interesting to see how they react.
