Sometimes I think about the person that I've become. I think about how I got here in the first place. I think about why I act the way I act and why I do the things I do. I think about who I'd be if I hadn't done something or maybe not have attended some event. What if I hadn't have been there in that moment. What if I had been somewhere else or spoken to a different person, would my opinion on life and the way I visualize things be different? Would I be sitting in this rather uncomfortable chair hugging Roger my pillow pet and writing my thoughts away to the world? Would people see me from a different point of view and say to themselves, "What happened to her?" 

Maybe we all ask ourselves these questions, but they are usually asked when they are least expected. Sometimes there are really good to be asked so you can have some assurance in your life that maybe you need to follow a different path and maybe make some changes. However, most of the time they cause stress. We believe that if we would have done something differently or possibly acted nicer toward a certain person, everything would change. If that one day or moment hadn't have happened, we would be a better person. I know I tell myself that sometimes. It's a bad habit that most of us need to break out of. 

I want to tell you something. We are better than who we were. You read me? We are who we are truly made to be. You know that one event I was mentioning that probably would have changed the course of your life forever? It's in the past. This is the present. Don't even think about what has happened. Life always moves on. It's moving on right now. So what are you going to do about it? You are going to love yourself for who you are. You're going to give yourself a big hug and scream at the top of your lungs, "Self! You are amazing!" Do it. Right now. Have confidence in everything that you do and always be strong in every action you make. Have faith in who you are. Don't ever doubt yourself based on who you used to be. You, are amazing.

If you might have noticed, I squeezed in the little bit of information that I am now the proud owner of a pillow pet (courtesy of my best friend). He is a turtle and his name is Roger. Roger says hello. His soft plushness stole my heart immediately. We both have a long night full of movies ahead of us so I bid you all farewell. Have a wonderful night and don't forget to hug yourself before you head off to wherever your dreams may take you.

You're pretty,
Tabs <3
