❤️ “I’m still learning to love the parts of myself that no one claps for.” ❤️
learning to love yourself wholeheartedly is a process.. but it’s a process that is incredibly important in how many things in your life are going to play out. loving yourself will make it easier for you not to chase someone who doesn’t love you or treat you properly. instead of seeking someone else’s love to fill the void you have yet to fill yourself, go out and do things that will help you discover who you are.
- go on a long road trip with a friend.
- sit in a cozy cafe by yourself & read an uplifting book.
- stay up all night with your friends while laying under the stars & talking about life.
- call an older family member & ask them to tell you about their past.
- write inspirational quotes on some note cards & hang them up around your room as daily reminders.
just do things that you enjoy & learn how to live without craving love..
once you do that, you will then recognize & be ready to be loved by someone who actually loves you for all that you are.. instead of seeking love from someone who doesn’t deserve you.
“plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” ❤️
one day, the right person will show up with huge ass bouquet. 😘
None of the bucket lists i have posted on my blog are “finished” products. I add onto them randomly.. but I thought it would be fun to post my current one & see what are some of the places you all want to go?! Might give me an idea or another place to add onto mine 🙂 eventually I will make these more specific when it comes to exactly where i want to go in some of these countries.
- Dallas, TX
- New Zealand
- Bora Bora

there’s absolutely no exaggeration when I say I wouldn’t have made it through 2016 without him. he was a constant reminder that no matter how emotionally tired i get from fighting my clinical anxiety & depression, i have a purpose.. even if it’s just being his momma.
we don’t save them,
they save us.
& my Owen Bowen definitely saved me.
a little reminder I think we all need to refresh our minds with often: we all have a “dark” side to us.. meaning we aren’t perfect or “on top of our game” all the time. we can all be
emotional. we have all acted before thinking. etc. etc.. Did you realize how I said ALL of us? as in EVERY single person on this earth…
the people who TRULY care about you are going to understand that you’re human, they will be there for you, & they will help you grow from there. they will not try to make you feel like something is wrong with you..
the people you need in your life are the ones who will love you unconditionally. your significant other should be someone in your life that supports you, uplifts you, is a shoulder to cry on when you need them.. someone who loves you at your best AND worst.
if that’s not the case:
- close that chapter of your life.
- don’t go back to it.
- seriously, don’t.
they who don’t support you at your worst,
damn sure don’t deserve you at your best.
