Happiness Is The Greatest Beauty Secret

tina-turner-2-

“My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself. I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything. It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look has to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.” – Tina Turner

Take That Leap Of Faith

Favim.com-beauty-bicycle-blonde-fashion-665224


Have you ever held back from doing something even though deep down you know you really wanted to do it? Did you ever hold back because you were just scared or didn’t have a true reason to not do it?

I could be talking about anything honestly; That new job you think you want but you’re just not quite sure if its for you or not, buying a super expensive TV when you know you can afford it but you don’t know if you’re going to want to spend that money on something else, or whatever your mind comes up with.

A lot of decisions probably ride around the topic of money. Do I have enough money to get this? Do I have a little bit extra to spend to go on that vacation I’ve always wanted to go on. Do I really want to pay for that even though I don’t NEED it?

Well a lot of these decisions can be easily solved. Just buy a magic eight ball and it’ll tell you what to do!

TOTALLY KIDDING.

Depending on the scenario you’re debating with yourself on, I think your gut and taking that leap of faith is going to do you wonders.

For instance, I just recently was approached by this very sweet and kind girl on instagram who works for a certain business and she asked me to join her! Now my first thoughts were, alright this is a total scam. She’s just trying to take my money and run with it, its not real.

But after a while I got to thinking.

Maybe this isn’t a scam. Maybe she actually wants me to join her company and is trying to get me interested in this great opportunity.

Change is so hard for many people and a lot of people take the safe route and don’t ever try anything new and I’m over here thinkin, what kind of a life is that?

So I’m going to take my own advice, take that leap of faith, and run with it. You honestly never know how something is going to turn out unless you try. It might be a scam and I might waste my money on something that was nothing.

OR

It could be the best thing that ever happened to me and I end up loving it.

I know it’s difficult to see past the area of unknown. It’s like looking across a field and not being able to see the other side but you have a feeling there’s something on the other side that is important.

It’s a battle with yourself sometimes, I get it.

 “Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.” – Louise E. Boone

As scary as it is, once you do it, every time after that is just going to be that much easier. It’s such a basic quote when people say, “you’ll never know unless you try it” but it’s so relevant in everyday life.

TAKE THAT LEAP OF FAITH. QUIT LETTING FEAR CONTROL YOUR LIFE.


Thanks again for reading guys, I hope my interesting words somehow inspired you to change the way you think a bit. I mean a girl can try right? Don’t forget to come back for daily motivational quotes and new posts a couple times a week (notice I don’t even put a day here cause that’s how inconsistent I am). As always,

Traveling Questions Everyone Has When Planning To Get Away

accessoires-city-coffee-girl-Favim.com-2581672


So you’ve started to think about taking a vacay have ya?

I know there are so many people who are like “oh yeah, just drop everything and buy a plane ticket”, “don’t worry about it man, just do it, you’ll figure it out”. Yeah as much fun as that would be, lets be a bit more reasonable.

I’m a college student so money isn’t some easily attainable thing for me at the moment. So how am I supposed to live my life traveling, yet keep enough money where I’m not completely broke out of my mind?

WELL LET ME TELL YOU

Some of the first things I think about before I travel are:

  • Where am I gonna go
  • How much is it gonna cost
  • Who am I bringing with me, if anyone
  • How am I going to obtain this money to go
  • When am I going to find time to go
  • Should I just wait and save up more
  • Where would I stay

Those are only a few thoughts racing through my head while planning a trip.

Now that its summer, most college kids have jobs. However, a lot of the time, they either aren’t full time, or they don’t have super strict bosses who need them every second of the day. See, so there’s a little leeway here.

In my case, my job is not at all hard to get away from. So taking time off work won’t be the big issue here for me. My biggest issues are cost, where I’m gonna stay, and how I’m going to find the money to go.

If you really do your research though, it’s honestly not too difficult to find a decently priced vacation spot that will give you just the right amount of adventure and relaxation you need.

You don’t need to go to some tropical island or insane overseas destination. At least if you don’t have the money. Trust me, if I had the money, I’d be on a flight to Paris right now.

I’m just looking for that adventure in my life. I’ve been around to so many different places where I’m from. Places I’ve discovered that I never knew were in my area and it gave me such a thrill thinking about how many destinations out there I’ve never been to or even heard of.

If I can find some hidden gems in the midwest, just think about how many beautiful places there are out in the world aside from the U.S.

I think the best idea would be to start out with a pencil and a piece of paper, write down any place you might be interested in going to, research hotels/homes you could possibly stay in, and go from there.

Ever heard of Groupon? If not, I’m about to change your life. Groupon is a coupon sharing app that you can download for free and they show you a thousand different coupons with categories from “things to do”, “food and beverages”, to “health and beauty”, and so much more. They even have getaways too!

It doesn’t hurt to try it out! Look up the getaways and see what crazy deals they might be offering. I also know Expedia.com has daily deals as well with resorts that are sometimes 50% off!

Traveling shouldn’t be a burden to try and figure out. It should be fun! Worrying about the money is frustrating, but like I said, grab a pencil and paper, write down where you want to go, how you can gain a little extra cash, and start researching!


I hope you found the article to be helpful! Let me know if you have any questions or comments down below! I love you all so much for taking the time to read my posts! I’ll be posting daily motivational quotes every day so come back for either a quote or another post if my mind gains a little inspiration to write more often 🙂 As always,

Peace & Blessings ❤

Spread Your Wings

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.” – C. JoyBell C.

Humor Can Make A Serious Difference

“Humor can make a serious difference. In the workplace, at home, in all areas of life – looking for a reason to laugh is necessary. A sense of humor helps us to get through the dull times, cope with the difficult times, enjoy the good times and manage the scary times.” – Steve Goodier

Life Is Too Short To Waste

“I believe that if you don’t derive a deep sense of purpose from what you do, if you don’t come radiantly alive several times a day, if you don’t feel deeply grateful at the tremendous good fortune that has been bestowed on you, then you are wasting your life. And life is too short to waste.” – Srikumar Rao
