First I’d like to apologize for my absence in these past few weeks- life just gets the best of you sometimes that you just can’t keep up. But here I am, trying! I’m taking responsibility for not tending to something that is very important to me. Respect yourself and the things you love/things that are important to you. Own up to your mistakes and take responsibility. Get your priorities together and take charge. Accept that you’re not super woman or super man and that you can’t control and handle everything, but accept it and do your best. Life isn’t just rainbows and smiles and all things happy- things get serious and challenging so that you can prove to yourself how strong you really are. Don’t give up, blame other people, and continue the same pattern. Learn from what goes well and what doesn’t. Change the things that suck and find ways to make the good things even better.
