Truth. Nothing shows strength like apologizing and starting again.

Nothing shows strength more than kindness on your worst days 💕❤️

Push down that anger at the world and instead use your lot in life to recognize that others may have it rough too but it will not always look like your troubles.

YOU are better than anger. Fight for a better way. Willingness to care and determination will get you much further in life than taking things out on others. You have SO much more power than the world wants you to know ❤️

It took me a long while to be willing to show the side of me that wasn't smiling and happy and not in pain.

But now I am ALL the better for it. My family relationships are stronger than ever as we all work towards a better future.
Obviously it was really hard at first working to not only be completely truthful in how bad I was doing but also asking for help when I needed it. It is SOOO hard to ask for help!

But SOOOO worth it!

Saving myself energy and extra pain is Always worth asking for help no matter how hard it is to say the words sometimes.

If you are open to it I challenge you to ask for help when you need it and/or being fully truthful when people ask how you are doing or when you need support for good or bad emotions.

I promise the world is better when you don't have to tiptoe around others.

Plus: they ask how you are, challenge them to the truth! Maybe they will become better at asking others or answering when you give an unexpected answer 😉

Life is too short to live lies or waste it on people who don't realize your worth and pricelessness.

Do it for YOU!

Courage dear heart❤️

Years ago I came across this powerful phrase: Don't let the world make you bitter, be better ✨️

At that point in time I was bitter at how much I had lost. My teenage years were wasted in a hospital post surgeries and I was in a wheelchair and in so much pain, a LOT more than I had ever experienced. I was 15 and after school when my friends got to have fun, I had to go to physical therapy. I did love exercising so that wasn't what I was disenchanted with.
I saw these adults struggling and wincing in pain. They are weak! I thought in anger.

And then I saw this old lady who couldn't walk she hurt so bad she sobbed and they brought out a wheelchair for her since it was too painful. In that moment I saw myself. I had been there too. My mom had said "suck it up Tierra" "sometimes you just got to fake it til you make it"
Those phrases cost me so much. When she finally had bad pain, I told her the exact same thing, suddenly her attitude changed and she was much more charitable when it came to my pain. But that is a story for another day.

After watching that old lady hurt so bad, it hit me how awful I had been -even if it was only in my head. Later that day I came across that quote: Don't let the world make you bitter, be better!
I felt like it changed my DNA it was so perfectly timed! God helping change me for good ❤️

Don't let the world teach you to be cruel, because YOU are better than that. Dare to be optimistic and positive and spreading kindness around!

Have The Audacity To Hope 💕✨️✨️💖
