Life is hard. And sometimes it feels like nothing goes right. Like a downward spiral, and there is no way to reverse it. But there is. The way we handle life's ups and downs is up to us. A very good friend of mine recently got me this book called The Secret. I hadn't heard of it, but it is very popular. It is about learning how to control our thoughts so that we think positive thoughts all the time. Because if you think positively you will attract more positive thoughts and your life will become more positive, and exactly what you want. It is actually very interesting and insightful. In this book it talks about making goals for yourself and to help keep those thoughts of what you want with you, it talks about a vision board/book. I have heard about these, and I started making one a couple years back, but obviously never followed through. Today is different. I went and got my vision book and made the very first page! I am starting today with setting my goals and making sure that I achieve them!
This is my dream/vision book! :) I loved this quote when I saw it and thought that it is perfect for the purpose of this book!
Also, the same friend that gave me the book, gave me advice about myself. I am the kind of person who will always put everyone and everything before myself. Which is good at times, but then who takes care of me? So her advice was to start doing things for myself, and that is exactly what I did today! I went to the store and got my dream book, but also got a new sketch book and pencils! I have always loved to draw and sketch things, but I haven't in a while, and I have never had real charcoal pencils to sketch with!
My beautiful new sketch book! :)
My first drawing in my new book! :)
Today was the first day in a while that I was truly happy! I am starting to slowly change, and become a better person! :D Life is good!
