Let’s talk:

There are some things on my mind that I want to share with you. I have never been asked what I felt was best for this world and I’ve never walked in anyone else’s shoes. But one thing I do know about me is that I have compassion and I know what it’s like to have a little and have a lot. If I had children going back to school this fall I honestly couldn’t send my child back. Well, I do have a college student who will be attending class online this fall. But I honestly feel like especially living in Texas that this isn’t something that I could do to my child, teachers, and staff. So for me, it would be online learning. I know that some parents won’t agree with me but this is just my personal opinion. Secondly, the virus is spreading like wildfire and I personally believe that if we do shut down again that it will help stop the spread of this virus. But let me be clear if I was in charge and people who already lost their jobs and people who would be losing their jobs would get weekly unemployment benefits. Plus people who work from home or are essential workers would get extra pay as well. But since no one asked me my opinion I’m just giving you my two cents. I want everyone to be and stay healthy. I feel like too many people are dying and that hurts me. We need to start caring about one another more. Care about other people more. And I feel like people in power really don’t get the little people. We vote because we want and need change, but once people are in office they forget they were just like us once. So what are your opinions or two cents I would love to know?

Hello vulnerability, it’s me. I’m trying to be more transparent. I’m trying to trust people more. Look I have come a long way and I’m doing better. I have let down my guard and I’m doing better. I use to have a trust issue and didn’t want to speak up for myself. Hello me it’s time for a change. It’s time for you to be you and love out loud. It’s okay to trust with your whole heart and if someone breaks that trust then it’s okay. That doesn’t mean you did something wrong. You’re going to get it wrong but your human. You’re not going to have all the answers and you won’t understand the actions of others, but don’t stop being you. Let your guard down, be vulnerable, trust and live out loud. Girl, you have more power then you think. You are someone that people want to get to know. Laugh, love and be the light others need to see in this world. Stop letting doubts and other’s judgment stop you. Know that your awesome and you bring joy to others. So keep smiling and have a great day.

Note to younger self:

This is my birthday month and as I reflect on getting older there are things I wish I could have told my younger self. Enjoy being you, you are so unique and genuine. Don’t let others determine your worth. Know that your beauty comes from within. You set your own standard don’t let the world set it for you. Be okay with not knowing everything and being able to help everyone. Make sure you focus on your dreams just as much as others are focused on there’s. You’re going to make mistakes but learn from them and grow. It’s okay to help people but make sure you’re helping yourself in the long run. Save money and don’t be so quick to give it away to others. Have fun and be goofy. Your smile will light up a room. Don’t worry about what others are doing or what they think about you. You are the best version of you. Keep your head up and know that you are loved. But more than anything dream, dream and dream some more. You got this girl.
