When all else fails, smile!




Life has a funny way of switching things up on you. One day you’re strolling along in your comfort zone and then in a flash everything CHANGES.
“We must let go of the life we had planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell
Recently my own life hit a few obstacles in personal relationships, but this type of change can pertain to anything in your life that is causing you fear, uncertainty and a sense of loss. Instead of fighting against the emotions, accept them for what they are. We’re all human and we handle hard situations in our own ways. Cry it out, indulge in a few sweets, and then pick yourself up and be brave. The quote above truly hits home for me as I have made the choice to move on through a breakup and to embrace my second chance at new life, love and happiness.
The title of this post is a reflection of a motto of mine…just smile and send out positive vibes, even through and during all the chaos that life can bring. You may be asking, why and how? The energy that you put out into the world will only manifest even stronger around you. Ever notice how some days seem incredibly awesome- a great hair day, a cute smile from a stranger or a compliment at work? Confidence and self-love is key here ladies! If you’re constantly feeling negative and putting yourself down, that energy will also progress and accumulate during your day as well. Let.It.Go. Be beautiful, smart and put more focus into what makes you happy! The best and most important relationship you can have is with yourself.
I completely understand the feelings of anxiousness and sadness during life at the most unexpected times. We can only control ourselves, so how can you make today an exciting adventure for yourself? Take it one step at a time, look at yourself in the mirror, smile and tell yourself how amazing you are. Each day do this and I know everything will start to become a little bit easier. Have faith and send our positive energy and love…it will come back to embrace you ten-fold!
