Over the past couple months you've most likely seen my struggles and my low moments in life. You may have seen my heart break, my life fill with sadness, and my brain filled with stress. Despite all of this, I would like you to know that I'm alright.
I'm not sure how exactly this happened, but when I wake up everyday, I wake up happy. I'm happy I'm alive. I'm happy with the life that I continue to live in. Of course, there are some days that I wish went a little different, and I have things in life that I wish were “better”. I've learned by now that yes I have to keep working at those things, but that doesn't mean it's the end of the world.
The truth is that I've learned to focus on the positive aspects of my life. For example, I like to focus on my family and friends. No matter how many mistakes I make, they are always there supporting me. They have faith in me and continue to motivate me whether they know it or not.
I'm proud to say that I've given a lot of focus to myself as a person. I try to make the best of everyday, no matter what happens in that day. Things may not always go how I imagine them to, but that doesn't mean I give up. I've been through some not so happy times as other people have, but I don't let that get in the way of who I am. I try to spread happiness and kindness to others because in my dark times I know that's what I would want to receive. I'm proud to say that I'm a person who loves creating smiles on people's faces because it genuinely feels great!
I'm going to tell you a secret. I focus on my family, my friends, and myself because in my opinion that's what matters the most to me. I've realized that I'm the happiest when I focus on the positives of my life like my family, friends and myself. I don't care about expensive makeup, clothes, cars, technology etc. The materialistic things in life do not bring me happiness; that's not what matters in life. I can't express how great it feels to surround yourself with people who love you and you love back.
Because of all the warm love I receive from these incredible people in my life, I'm alright. Because of the self love I have for myself, I'm alright. Because I believe in happiness and my dreams, I'm alright. My life may not be perfect, but I wouldn't change one aspect about it because of my family, friends, and because of who I am.
So for those of you who have seen me struggle, don't worry because I'm alright. Sometimes I may make mistakes or fight with my internal self. I'm sure I can't be the only one because I'm sure you have those moments too.
I have a lot to figure out in life still, so just let me figure these things out. My heart may hurt sometimes, but it always heals. My life may be filled with sadness from time to time, but I'll be happy again. My head may stress out, but I'll find peace.
A girl who's alright
