The past  couple of weeks have been crazy. I was a one hundred percent complete stress basket, but then I realized something. I was going to EVERYONE for advice. I was asking them, how can I handle this situation- Should I do this? Should I not do this? How can I accomplish all of this? And then I realized something. When I finally realized that the decision I needed to make was only a decision I could make, and that the other people out there didnt care as much as I thought they did, My problems stopped. I let myself go into this worry frenzy because I couldnt make a decision about MY OWN life. But as soon as I decided to RUN my own life, and stop asking other people to make my own decisions, it was smooth sailing.

How often do we do that in our everyday personalities!? Someone likes a certain type of music- and we say, oh yeah I like that music too! Just so that we fit in, the same with clothes, the same with movies, the same with ideas and opinions. We go along with others to feel included and to make ourselves feel better- but being yourself is the only way to really feel included. You WONT feel included, if you ACT like someone your not, and they accept your pretend self.

So therefore- Chose your friends to be people that you are yourself around. Its hard to say- just BE yourself. Thats hard to do for some people. But what it means, is find the people you can Be yourself around, and hold onto them.

So Here is Me
1.) I like to listen to COUNTRY music. I like to BLAST it out of my car and sing at the top of my lungs. Most of my friends HATE country music, (except my besties that I am MY COMPLETE self around =) ) but heck, I am not about to act like I dont like country just to impress someone!

2.) I LOVE to wear T shirts and baseball hats. I like each of my nails to be painted a DIFFERENT color.

3.) I like to watch movies with a lot of war and killing. hahaha Id rather watch that than a chick flick. I KNOW! IM WEIRD! hahaha

4.) I play the guitar- and I dont sing that great- BUT I LOVE TO DO IT. so im gonna do it anyways.

5.) I would rather make the stupidest face in the world- and im talkin a HIDEOUS weird face than smile for a camera.

6.) When I was little, I ate peanut butter pickle sandwiches!! haha I dont think I have ever publicy made that announcement, but oh well, Go Big or Go home! haha I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER PICKLE SANWICHES! or I did? I need to retry them I think. hahaha

I am weird. But we ALL are weird. We all  have a Freak Flag. And I think we all should just LET OUR FREAK FLAGs fly. =) Life is too short to be anything but yourself. So find your friends that let you be yourself- and keep them close. =)

To cap this monologue off. I saw this and loved it. Think about the things you love, not the things you hate. Focus on them and capitalize on them. Worrying is crap. Make decisions and end the worrying. Its hard to do, but we have to. Life is simple, live it simply. GIVE MORE. find ways to help each other out! We are all here to  help, not take. Expect nothing, and you will always get something. =)

Ok- Over and Out.
