All I need is a genuine apology to move on…but sometimes they never come. Slowly, but surely I am learning to let go without one. All I ever want to do is make peace with my past so it won’t affect my present. ♥ #quotes #positivemind #positivelife #personaldevelopment
I am nowhere near perfect. Not even close. But I try to be a good person with a good heart & always think the best in people. I am told that this is both my best & worst trait. People make mistakes. I believe in second chances & in forgiveness. But I also believe that there comes a point when walking away from toxic situations & relationships is the smartest thing to do. I do not believe in hurting anyone who has hurt me & I do not want to harbor any negative thoughts or feelings on situations that have come & gone. I refuse to change the way I am & the way I love just because it goes unappreciated. I give everyone a chance, what you do with it is up to you. I know the kind of person I am & so do the people I care about. Everyone else is insignificant. At the end of the day, I can live with myself, my actions & my decisions & that is all that matters. #quotes
"…maybe I’m just in love when you wake me up…" It’s snowy, I’m home & I haven’t posted a vid in awhile…so why not? Not the best take but I’m lazy so too bad. OK BYE. #music #singing #acoustic #guitar #cover #edsheeran #wakemeup
Mind + Body ♥ I have the yoga studio to myself again today :) “Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event control your emotions”. The past two weeks have definitely taken a toll on my inner peace & slowly but surely I am finding my way back towards that calmness. I don’t like to harbor any negative feelings or energy, but I’m human & it happens. However, I don’t need that kind of weight on my heart, so I work on letting go every single day. Inhale the positive. Exhale the negative ♥ #meditate #meditation #health #mentalhealth #innerpeace #fitness #gymtime #day35 #quotes
Made Vietnamese spring rolls yesterday (or as @faasanchez likes to call them: “vietnamese tacos” haha) & dipped them in homemade spicy peanut butter sauce…then basically had a foodgasm. I am drooling just thinking about them! Thanks for teaching us Fatima! ♥ @lindsayzew #food #foodporn
They say emotional pain only lasts about 10-20 mins and anything after that is self-inflicted. It’s hard to pretend things aren’t happening when you know that they are & it’s hard to accept things that go against your ideal situation. I recently began meditating in an attempt to silence all my negative thoughts and emotions & soon realized that meditation doesnt necessarily silence your mind, but instead makes you more conscious of how you feel so that you may understand better & begin to let go. You can try to run away from your feelings & your thoughts, but until you confront the things that scare you, you will never truly be free. Let yourself feel the things that hurt you, and eventually they lose their power over you.
Happiness is a choice. Everyday you have the opportunity to change your life for the better…or worse. You may not be able to control certain things, situations or people…but you can control how you react to them. When your mind is healthy, your perspective changes. It’s a daily process, but one that will be worth the investment. Take time each day & spend it alone with your thoughts. Hear them, confront them, accept them, then let them go. It’s not easy, but I’m learning ♡ #meditate #meditation #mindovermatter #mentalhealth #quotes #personaldevelopment
