Independence Day!

Hey y’all! HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!! Hope y’all are having a great day so far. Today, I am going to be talking about being independent. Enjoy!!

Happy Fourth of July! Comment y’all’s plans for the day 🙂

Spend 4th of July with us at Avista Resort - Avista Resort Blog

What does it mean to be independent? Well, according to Google, it’s free from outside control, not depending on others.

I think everyone should strive to be independent in their own lives. Yes, it’s perfectly ok to have friends or family that help you and are are there for you. But, it’s important to learn how to be comfortable with and by yourself. Don’t always rely on others, rely on yourself!!

Being independent helps with your self-esteem and confidence.

It’s soooo important to be independent and comfortable being by yourself!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Have an amazing Fourth of July <3. See y’all Wednesday! Have a good day and continue running up your mountain.

Just Smile :)

Hey y’all! Welcome to today’s blog post. I hope you enjoy and will subscribe!!

Earlier this week I was painting and I had a clear image of how I wanted it to turn out. Long story short it did not turn out the way I wanted it to AT ALL.

Don’t come for me I know it’s bad hahaha

When I was writing “smile” on the canvas, I realized that things aren’t always going to turn out how you expected them too. And guess what? That’s okay!!! Just smile regardless. 🙂

Yes, my painting is not the best and definitely not what I was going for, but in the end it was fine and I was fine. Just because things don’t turn out how you hope doesn’t mean you failed. It just means there was a different plan, a better one. You see if I would have never painted a bad painting, then I would not be writing this post about how it’s ok for things to turn out differently. Then, I would have no ideas on what to write about. Then, there would be no post for today! See, everything works out!!!

Whatever happens, just smile through it and know something good is ahead. 🙂

Even if your situation is way more important than a bad painting, you should STILL smile and acknowledge the fact that something better is in store.

JUST SMILE!!!!

Comment something that makes you smile 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you did, make sure to like, comment, and follow for more! I’ll see y’all on Workout Wednesday! Have an amazing week and continue running up your mountain!!
