some time ago...

I wrote this down on a piece of paper.
just thoughts that were flowing through my mind that I didn't want to forget.
Someday...one of my children may need words of advice...
Someday I may come across a friend in need where these words may help.
I'm glad I wrote them down.

I came to a realization today.  That is, to do things because you want to.  Not because you think it's the safe choice or the "right" thing to do, and especially not because you are just trying to impress somebody.  Don't do things for other people in hopes for something in return.  Do it simply because you want to.  You may not feel like you know who you are or what you want, but that's okay.  Here's the trick.  Do what makes you feel happy!  You can't go wrong with that.  Soon, by doing what makes you happy, you'll realize you're becoming the person you want to be.  You're not becoming somebody someone else wants you to be.  When you make choices by feelings of happiness you'll never doubt or regret.

Another thing, notice people in your life who love you and would do anything for you.  Cherish those who constantly uplife you and who are always there for you.  Know the people who you feel you can tell anything to and you know they won't tell anybody.  Find those people in your life who treat you with the same love you do for them.  Stop chasing after people who make you feel like your not as loved or special to them as you make them feel to you.  They aren't worth it.  If their friendship causes more hurt than happiness, LET GO!  Cherish your history and memories and move on.  Build your relationships with the ones you feel loved by.  Don't spend time trying to build a relationship that isn't going anywhere.  If you waste your time doing that you'll continue to nourish seeds of unhappiness inside when you could be nourishing happy ones elsewhere.  You'll never be able to reach the stars if you're continuously fighting the storms.
