Love who you are.. and take back your life!

I'm very excited to say that tomorrow is Friday. Did you know? Sometimes I forget. I'll go through the day checking the calendar a few times and then there's this amazing peace that comes over me knowing there's one day closer to being free. Free from alarm clocks. Free from the urgency to finish something up.  ♥ Overall, I think you know what I mean. :)

I wanted to share this quote because I felt it was a perfect begin to what I'm going to talk about:

"Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish." - John Jakes

For those who have known me my whole life they could agree that I've never been one for confrontation. Heck, I've never returned a piece of clothing or anything for that matter in my entire life. So I think that just goes to show I don't like confrontation in any way. I'm always been easy going and as much as I'd like to disagree people have walked all over me throughout my life. When it comes to people I loved being hurt I've always took a stand. Not for myself though, never for me. 
I'm not quite sure what came over me these past few weeks. It could be because I've decided to stop taking a certain medicine and maybe my body is readjusting? Either way I feel amazing. I feel great, strong, powerful. I feel like Super Woman. Okay, maybe not Super Woman, but man.. I feel great like I could jump into a heated debate and win, hands down. Of course that debate would need to be something I know a little something about, haha. 

Without details I've recently approached a topic that I felt strongly about in my day to day life. I'm standing my ground and it feels unreal. I've had to look in the mirror of few times to breathe and pinch myself, making sure that this confident woman looking back is really me. Well it's me. I hope I don't lose this will to fight for what I believe in.

I wanted to share this with you because I know there are a lot of people out there, not just women who are timid as I am. You get pushed over too easily and you avoid disagreeing and sharing your opinion because you rather avoid a fight all together. Well, just because you decide to stand up for yourself doesn't mean it comes with a fight. This is our life... OUR LIFE! We only get to run around it once. The decisions we make will change the ending and sometimes that goal needs to be in bright lights to be reminded every moment. I finally have a goal up in those bright lights and I'm not backing down or getting walked all over until I'm happy with the ending. When I say happy with the ending that means being happy with myself.  ♥

Love who you are, because you are beautiful. You are genuine.. you are unique.. you are YOU! Your life is yours plain and simple. This life wasn't given to you for others to make decisions for you. It wasn't given to you for others to tell you who you are, what you are, or what you should be doing. This is your life so you can be in charge of it. I think it's time we take back our lives! ♥ I love you all so much!
