Hello friends! I am just an average high school girl trying to navigate life in this crazy world we are all living in! In the short 15 years that I have been living on this Earth, I have already learned a lot about myself and about life. I'm not saying that I'm an expert at everything, or that I'm wise beyond my years. I'm not saying that I am a perfect human that is here to advise you to make the same, perfect decisions that I have made, because that is not the case. I am human and I make mistakes. A lot of mistakes. But that's life! We all make mistakes, and we all mess up. I think Hannah Montana really did say it best: "Nobody's perfect, you live and you learn it." Mistakes are just a part of life.
So no, the reason I'm making this blog is not to share about my amazing life, or my flawless decisions. My purpose here is to try to make your day a little bit better. I want to try and brighten your day, because lets face it: life is hard. Its full of a lot of things we have to do, a lot of standards we are expected to meet, and a lot of tough decisions. And, if you're a teenage girl like me, you'll really understand this one: we face a lot of pressure. I don't want to turn this into a rant about how girls in this generation have a hard time dealing with pressure, but the truth of the matter is that we do. We have a ton of pressure on us, from media, parents, boys, friends, school, and so many other factors. So yeah, life can be really hard.
But you know what? Life can be pretty freaking great too! I don't know if you've come to the same realization as me, but life is AMAZING!!!! There are so many cool things to do. So many awesome places to go. So much good food to eat. So many songs to dance to. So many sunsets and sunrises to witness. So many dogs to pet. So many flowers to smell. So many... okay you get the point. There are a lot of amazing things to do!
Just recently I really started to fall in love with life. I've realized how truly great life is. I consider myself a positive person (which you've probably realized by now since I'm making an entire blog based on positivity) and recently I've decided to start sharing my positivity with other people. I made an account on Instagram where I post positive messages and observations about life. I try to inspire people with my words in hopes that I can make their day better.
But something surprised me about that account. I was really surprised by how many people commented things like "thank you, I really needed this." I also realized how much hate I see on the media and in life on the daily. I began to realize that people really needed to see something positive during their day. In a world full of a lot of hate, it can be very easy to lose track of the good things in life, and I think people need to be reminded of the great things life has to offer.
Recently, through a workshop I participated in, I realized what I want to do with my life. I want to spread happiness, light, and positivity to as many people as possible. Making other people happy is one of the things that makes me the most happy. Think about it: wouldn't you rather hang out with a bunch of people who are really excited about life than with people who are grumpy and angry all the time? So I spend my time trying my best to make people happy and to help people feel good about themselves. That's one of the reasons I decided to create my positivity account on Instagram. I've had a lot of positive feedback on it, and I was inspired to find a way to be able to reach more people with my ideas and thoughts, which is why I'm now starting this blog! I want to post my ideas to reach a larger audience. Hopefully through this I will be able to make a difference in at least one person's life.
So, on to what I want to be posting on here: I'm hoping that I'll be posting about ways to be happy and some tricks to finding what makes you happy. I'd also love to discuss things like body image (p.s. you are beautiful. yes, I am talking to you, ya gorgeous little nugget), health, self-confidence, and relationships. I'm currently at the age where my friends and I are having LOTS of issues with boys and relationships, so I will probably have a lot to say on those sorts of topics. To go along with that, I will also talk about being okay with not being involved with a relationship (which is something I struggle a lot with currently). I might talk a little about music. I will DEFINITELY talk about having appreciation for yourself, which is something very important that I know a lot of people struggle with. I'll talk about friendships and love (because you can have love for more than one person). This is not a religious blog, but I am beginning to start pursuing an interest and belief in Christianity, so I may discuss that journey a little bit.
But my main purpose is for YOU. I want to know what you, whoever is reading this, needs to hear. So let me know what it is that you need at the moment and I'll try my very best to share some thoughts on it. This post is basically just an overview of what the blog is about, and I'll be posting more of what I was talking about later on!
Thank you for reading! See ya later! <3
