Days 114-115.

If you are reading this, I want you to know that you are good enough. You are worth it. You belong here on this planet. You are loved, even when you feel you are most UNLOVABLE.

It’s okay to make mistakes. It’s okay to fall sometimes; you must ALWAYS get back up though.

Don’t be conquered by people who are intentionally trying to bring you down. Don’t try to understand them either. And definitely do not ever, EVER waste your time and tears crying over them or something they said/did to you. They are not now, and will NEVER be worth your sorrows.

Your friends and family will always be there for you and understand what you’re going through, even when you don’t even have the words to explain what you are feeling. Surround yourself with people you can be your true self with and can open up to. Don’t spend a single minute of your life hanging around people you have to impress. YOU DON’T HAVE TO PROVE YOURSELF TO ANYONE THAT IS YOUR TRUE FRIEND! They will take you flaws and all.

Always make time to do the things you love. Even when you’re extremely busy, set time aside for things that make you happy.

There is very little that good music, good coffee, good food, and time spent with good friends can’t cute.

No prayer is overlooked or ignored. It doesn’t matter who you are; God hears all prayers, no matter how big or small.

Despite all bad that has occurred in life, there is a God and he loves you. If you don’t believe in him, put in some effort to actually seek him. I promise you he will make himself known. But you can only feel his presence if your heart is actually open and willing to accept his existence. It will be worth it.

God is not a magician. Things will not be granted at the snap of your fingers. You actually have to do work and take credit for your actions in life. Accept responsibility for the things you do. Own up to your failures and then move on.

Always, ALWAYS be kinder than necessary. Go out of your way to be nice. Very few people on our great Earth appreciate genuine kindness because they don’t experience it too often. Be patient with those people. Better yet, be patient with everyone.

Don’t forget to be happy. Life is too short to be anything else.

**I will always be the reader. I will always come back to this.

Day 41. I watched the movie “Coffee Shop” twice in the past week. It’s one of those cheesy romantic comedies that are super unrealistic and set the standards for men and expectations for women too high (do I sound like a love hater?). Though, it was still good and had a good message to it.

The main character reminded me a bit of myself. Big heart, desire to help those she loves, trouble finding Mr. Right, enjoys coffee more than a normal person should, ambitious, and a stubborn/feisty attitude when rubbed the wrong way. It was like watching a movie about myself, except I don’t have blonde hair and blue eyes (and I didn’t get to kiss the handsome guy at the end!!!).

Towards the end of the movie when she was in a rut and didn’t know what to do next, something her friend told her really stuck with me. He said:

“Don’t lose yourself in the temporary. No one has ever seen, no one has ever heard, and no one can ever imagine the things God has planned for them.”

How powerful is that statement? I found myself rushing this morning, just like every other morning, but now I try to catch myself before stressing out. Yes, there is a high possibility that I will run late again, but I have to remember to be patient. I cannot get stuck in the temporary.

We often forget that we are praising the Lord in our work so have to give our all and do the very best we can. We do not know the promises God has for us. We can only trust that his will is greater than our thoughts. Then we just need to let go and let God take care of it all.
