The picture attached is from one of my favorite school books, “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. I think this goes along with my post. You have to understand that everyone has a different path and that you are put in situations with others to learn. Life is honestly just a learning experience, you are tested then you learn. You have to understand that you’re on the way to becoming the best version of you. I know I reiterate that a lot, but it’s just because you need to understand that you’re on a journey. Though you don’t know where life will take you, it’s time to be open. You deserve to have happiness come to you. You deserve to have love come to you. You just have to be open!
Throughout your life you are only given one body. This body of course develops and may be changed over time. It’s important to take care of your body. That’s one of the reasons I gave up sugar for Lent, because it’s part of my transition to eating the healthiest I can (while still eating beef and chicken). It’s a simple step in the right direction. I’ve decided to start working out more (I’m scheduled to run a 5K in May). It’s going to help me become the healthiest version of myself (and get ready for prom). When talking about health it’s important to also mention mental and emotional health. I try to stay stress-free and one of the ways I manage my stress is through meditation, cleaning and writing. You have to find healthy ways that make you feel better about yourself. It’s also important to surround yourself with people that want you to succeed and will help guide you along your path (and those that you can help guide). You are not alone on your journey. Remember that.
You are on your journey to becoming the best version of yourself. This means that you will make mistakes, but these are your lessons to become the person you are destined to be. With growth, comes pain and mistakes. Just remember that while others have their own opinions, in the big scheme of things they don’t matter. Believe in yourself.
