Blair Waldorf is a highend, strong-willed, thick headed young woman from a show called Gossip Girl (in case you haven’t heard of it). She is a smart, brave, outspoken, stuck up, and stubborn girl with a good heart. These are two of the most important lessons this great character taught me.

Wild and Free

I cherish my home, I embrace my people, I roam where I please, I venture where my heart takes me. I have no qualms with trouble, I do what I must. I run free and unstoppable in my great adventure. I do not hold back. I will not and can not be broken. My wishes and dreams are my goals and my determination and perseverance is a growing strength. My endurance can be tested but I never fail. I win or I learn. I have a mind of my own. No one tells me who I am, who I must be, or what I must do. No one controls me, except me. No one can take from me my soul, my mind, my spirit. I am open-minded and open hearted. I am wild and free.

Quote of the Day

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
                  – Dylan Thomas

Do not lay down and let life run you over any and every which way. You are meant to take charge of your life. When things are not going well and what seems like a hurricane of bad things are crashing down on you, do not lose your light. Fight! You are not weak, you are not helpless, you are not a mat to be stepped on and crapped on. You are strong, you are smart, you are good, you are light. Shine. As bright as you can. Be all that you can be. Do whatever it takes to keep your head above the water. You can do it! Believe in the power and strength that you possess and own it. You do not have to let people run you down or run you over. Rage against the negative and the bad, they do not have to rule over you and determine your life. You do. You can do and be whatever you want. Know who you are. Know that you deserve the best. Know that you are loved. Know that you may get lonely but are never alone. Know that you can win the war. We all have to lose some battles, but we can always win the war. You can win the war against darkness, you can win the war against sadness, you can win the war against complacency, you can win the war against comfort zones. You can win the war against all the things in life that hold you back. You just have to recognize what’s holding you back and fight it. Break free. Those battles won’t always be easy, but when you fight and keep your head up, win or lose, you come out stronger and better. It is in you to be great, it is in you to let your brilliance radiate through your being and shine into this insane and beautiful world.
Rise up. Move forward. Shine bright.

What I Learned About Love From My Stellar Parents

People are constantly saying how love is hard and it’s work. Love is easy. People is where the hard part is. People are a piece of work. Loving someone is as easy as breathing, but allowing those you love, especially in a relationship, the chance and room to grow is where a lot of people fail.

My parents and grandparents, on both sides of my family, have been married for a very long time. My parents told my sister and I that the keys to a long lasting and happy relationship are growth, acceptance, and patience. You have to allow yourself and your significant other room to grow. You have to accept the fact that you and your significant other are going to change. So change together. It will not always be an easy transformation and you two can be on two completely different levels, but that’s where the patience comes in. You have to be patient with yourself and your loved one. You’ve got to have space and time to yourself to get yourself together and you need to spend time with your loved one and get to know them better as they grow.

Time comes with lessons learned and experience out the wazoo. So it’s almost like getting to know that person all over again, accept there are still a number of things you already know about that person. Plus it’s great cause they can give you some advice and knowledge that you may need to help you on your journey. So I guess the main thing is to be open. Be open-minded and ready to share a long and winding journey with the person you love like no other.

This is only what I’ve learned from watching my parents, not to mention the many other couples in my family who have also been together for fifteen plus years. I’m so blessed to know and be surrounded by so many beautiful and happily committed people. It’s really been a pleasure and an honor to have parents that truly love each other and who’ve gone through so much, individually and as a couple. They have had major highs and some very deep lows, and as hard as it’s been to watch, it’s also been a blessing, because I can say that I know real, true love. And unfortunately, a lot of people can’t say that this day in time. I hope that more people will soon. A love like theirs is what I’m waiting and longing for. I hope to find it soon *fingers crossed*.

All-in-all, love is easy, so love truly, deeply, with everything you’ve got, and with an open heart.

To Be Honest

Do not waste your time and energy on things that happen that you can not change, instead, spend your time and energy on the things that you can change.

Life, in nature and humanity, is as ruthless and difficult as it is beautiful and kind. That is the way of Life.

We must lose this tendency and need to whine and cry about what we can do nothing about. Instead, we need to focus our attention on reality and what we can do to make it better for all. We must take notice of wrong doings and injustice and right those wrongs. There is always something that we can do to improve life on every level, from ourselves, to society, to our food, to animals, to the Earth. Make a choice to make a difference and make the difference.

To Be Honest

There is a differnece between selfless and selfish. Most people don’t know that difference unfortunately. So, let me break it down for you. Selfless is taking care of yourself and taking care of others just the same. Selfish is being petty and making everything about yourself. Selfless is knowing your worth and knowing that everyone else has that same worth and respecting that. Selfish is putting yourself above others. Selfless is knowing we are all equal. Selfish is thinking yourself more important than any and everyone around you.

Selfish people, get over yourself. Yes, you are important, yes, you are special, yes, you deserve the best. No, you are not the center of the universe, no, you are not the only human being on this planet, no, you are not above anyone else.

Selfless people, keep doing what you’re doing. You’re doing it right.

And as it goes for both selfish and selfless people, there is always room for improvement. There is always room for progress. There is always a chance to be better. So improve, progress, and be better. You can do it!
