(I wrote this blog last night)
So right now I'm just sitting alone in my room, it's almost 2AM. My room is dark, my door is closed, I'm alone.. That's what I like. I can speak to God without being questioned or disturbed. I can think about things. This is my favorite time of each day.
I just lay alone in my bed, thinking about what happened that day. And you know what? I don't like to go to sleep without having anything to be proud of. I like to go to sleep one night, with all these successful things I've done that day. Even if it's just one small thing, like giving some change to those less fortunate. I'll still be proud of myself and I like to say goodbye to this day by thinking of the good things I've done.
A few days ago, my teacher said something about life being full of positives.
I thought of it. Okay, so that's true. But life is also full of negatives. Those negative's can turn into positive's if you just believe. Reach out for the positive, and the positive with come to you. You can't just sit back, do what you want, and STILL expect your day to be full of positives. You have to work.
And no I don't mean work as in writing in text books and doing your homework. I mean work as a human being. Without pens or books or papers. Work for yourself, for your family, your friends. For those who are less fortunate than you.
People still in school: Do you write the date of the day at the top of your page, for when you're working in a book? Or asked for the date?
Of course you have.
At least once.
My point is.. does it ever cross your mind that this date that you're writing.. it's the LAST time you will EVER write it? Like just say.. Today's date is 7/2/09. You will never write or ask for that date again. Because it's in the past. 2009 won't come back to you. You can't go back to 2009.
My second point is that that proves you have to appreciate. Appreciate living. Appreciate God for extending your life and allowing you to wake up from your sleep every day. Appreciate your teachers for taking their time to teach you things you'll need to know. Appreciate your parents for raising you up. Appreciate your friends for always being there.
Just appreciate. Because sometimes, appreciating is all you need to feel good about yourself.
If you don't appreciate other people, you won't appreciate yourself.
That's a short blog from me today. That's all I have time for, as much as I'd like to write more! Once again, thank you for reading and commenting on my blogs. It means a lot to me that I'M inspiring YOU with my personal stories. So thank YOU.
And remember (I'm going to keep reminding you), you're beautiful. Inside and out.
Which reminds ME.. Today I was looking at a banana that looked sort of rotted from the outside. I didn't want to open it and eat it, because I didn't like the look of the outside of it.
But I did. And guess what? The inside was PERFECT. This relates to everything in life. People won't look their best from the outside. But on the INSIDE, they'll BE their best.
Or it can be the other way round. Banana's can look perfect from the outside, with a perfect yellow color and a perfect body shape. But when you open it up, it might not turn out to be how you expected it to be.
So APPRECIATE. Appppppriciate! I'm giving you the advice that I had never gotten. I've given MYSELF this advice and it's helped me.
Anyway, that's all for today! Thank you for reading my blogs! Please take your time to comment, if you like. I love you all, beautiful girls.
(by the way, the banana was yum!)
