Love and Support

Ok, this is not going to be a food post (I'll probably get one of those in a little later) I just feel like I had to get some of this out. The past couple of days have really been a big test for me, I wont go into too much detail but it has to do with boy issues and such. Im sure you girls know how that is. Anyway usually this would be the time that I would be beating myself up about it and turning to ED to help deal. This morning my friend and I were texting about it and what I said actually even shocked me, and I'm sure it shocked my friend. The conversation went a little something like this:

Friend: "Well, just keep that pretty little head up"

Me: "Not a problem. If things are going to be like this, then it just wasn't meant to be, and I'm totally fine with that."

Friend: "That's a mighty nice prospective to have!"

Me: "It's the only one to have!"

At that moment the beautiful Megan's words came to mind "If your not happy, then what else can you be?" I love this because it is so true. Why waste your life worrying about the things that you can not control? Everything is in God's hands and what is best for your life at that moment will happen, I really do feel confident about that. Things that are meant to work out, will work out. And the things that are not meant to be, won't. Sometimes it may not feel like the best thing at that moment, but I can honestly look back and say that all of the hard times I have had have brought me to the place that I am now. And I like that place, and I can only think that everything that happens from here on out will bring me to an even better place.

With that said, I also came to the realization of what a big help having this blog is. I don't know if I would have been able to have such a positive attitude about what is going on, if it had not been for all of you girls. Every day I am inspired by something that I read on one of your blogs, and I see the strength and positivity that each one of you possess. I feel so blessed that this has come into my life, and it is just one more example of how everything that pops into your life is there for a reason. I have gotten very close to some of you, and feel like friendships are being developed everyday. Even though I have not met any of you in person, I feel like I have become close friends with all of girls by sharing things from each of our days with eachother. So thanks to all of you for being such WONDERFUL, STRONG, and INSPIRING girls. I love all of you and just wanted you guys to know that!

Im gonna stay positive, because what else can I do? Its my life and being negative about it is no way to go through life. Because what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger...right?! and I feel like a lot of us are living proof of that!

So for keeping me sane and positive through the hardest times I love you all and send you lots of love and kisses! :)

Oh, Em...there you got making me cry again! i'm totally tearing up right now. This post is SO TRUE. Seriously, what is the point of living life if we are constantly consumed with negative emotions. Life is so precious and special and your optimistic attitude has really inspired me to be grateful for each and everyday and approach it with a positive mindset.

I totally agree with you on the blogging thing - it is a beautiful little family we've formed and we are so lucky to all have each other <3 I don't know what i would do without you or the other girls!

have a wonderful day, keep that chin up and face the world with that beautiful smile that i love so much :) <3 xo

p.s. if you ever wanna talk about the boy sitch please never hesitate to facebook/email/or TEXT! (now that you've got my digits!) anytime!

awww I totally love this post. Sometimes it's hard to dig yourself out of the "negativity" rut, but like you, I don't see what being a pessimist does for your life. Good for you for being strong and not letting a life challenge topple you over - ESPECIALLY if it's a boy! GRRRR They really cause too much chaos sometimes. Keep your head up! :)

Katie said...

I hope everything is okay. E-mail me whenever you want to talk about stuff... I can relate! Your positive attitude in the face of crappiness is inspiring, and REALLY hard to do in a public (blog) setting. Keep your chin up, girl!

Ohh boy issues. I sometimes wonder how its possible for them to drive us so crazy. I'm loving that conversation, DEFinitely the attitude to have. I believe it's true that if you're your best,happiest, fullest version of yourself everything and everyone falls into place around you. Some things progress, some things fade, but you keep moving forward and growing. Keep on being your lovely self girlie.

this post really touched're right. everything is in God's hands, and why worry about things we have no control over? happiness is not in something you strive to achieve, but what you already have...
i LOVE your positive attitude...keep it up, girl~

Beautiful post hun. If we just allow God to have control over our lives, total control, then we needn't worry but He has promised to take care of us.
It's so great to hear how strong you have become over your ED and how much you have realized that life is worth living and enjoying.
