Happiness is a way of life, not a destination.

As you can tell from my usual posts, I LOVE fashion and beauty, and that is mainly what I talk about on my blog. But I think what I can really contribute to cyber space is my sense of optimism and enthusiasm of life. Now, I know that sounds sooooo disgustingly joyous to many so-called 'realists' (pessimists), but I really don't care!!

Everyone has had their hard times, or for some they have yet to arrive. Times of being totally broke and wondering how the hell you're going to pay the rent, horrendous break-ups that leave you detesting relationships, being cheated on, stabbed in the back, let down, and disappointed. You may have been victimised, bullied, abused, treated unfairly, put down and left to feel like your dreams don't matter, and there's no way YOU could do THAT fantastic thing. It is the hardest thing to pick yourself up, tell all those nasty people to go screw themselves, and get back your self-worth. It may mean having to stand up to your family, a best friend, or partner, but it doesn't matter who it is, if that person is negative and wont change their ways after you've spoken to them about it a good few times, CUT. THEM. OUT. Of course if we're talking about a family member, then just make a conscious effort to spend as little time around them or have them involved in your life as little as possible.

Surrounding yourself with negative energy is going to drag you down. Maybe not at first if you're a strong person, but over time you will find your moods shifting, goals lagging, and mindset dipping down. DON'T DO THIS TO YOURSELF!

No matter what situation you are in, there is always, I repeat, ALWAYS a way out of it. If you're broke, get a job (which, by the way, is possible. Anyone who is desperate enough and tries hard enough will find one. No, it may not be a great job, but just stop moaning and do it - it is not for forever!) or sell your junk on ebay. If you're constantly fighting with your boyfriend/girlfriend and overall are not happy with them, end it. It may be the hardest thing you ever have to do, but you deserve to be in a relationship where you are HAPPY and are ENCOURAGED to be the best version of you you can be, and most importantly, feel SUPPORTED.

Now onto a toughie: health-related bad things. Let's say something happens to someone you love; maybe they are diagnosed with a terminal illness or have an accident; something that no amount of money can fix. Things like this are unbelievably soul-destroying. You will cry and cry, and feel lost, and helpless, and angry. But if time is limited with this person, spend it doing wonderful things, and know that this person you love will not be suffering for forever. If you're religious, know that God has a plan for this beautiful soul, and in the grand scheme of things, life is oh so temporary. And as for you, the person that gets 'left behind', if unfortunately someone you love passes away, know that this will make you so strong, and so appreciative of life, and aware of how precious every day is. Know that this person watches over you and will protect you as you continue on the great journey that is life!

Moral of the story is, you can always bounce back. ALWAYS.

Just as a rose may have a year of terrible weather and be ripped apart, new buds will return the next year!! Life goes on! And just thinking positively will help you get through the tough times that much more easily! Believe me, it's true! Hard work pays off, so quit moaning and moping, and get out there and prove to the world just how much you've got to give, and just how capable you are of doing amazing things! I am cheering you all on =D. Go get em'.

LIFE IS AMAZING!! Mega Love xx
