Today, I thought I would start a new blog series called Couch Talk. This series will really just be things that come across my mind while I'm sitting on the couch watching tv. This new year I really want to get back into blogging since I really do enjoy it and I get a bunch of readers coming to my blog reading my posts so I don't want to stop now!
Recently I've been thinking about the way humans interact with each other. We're always judging one another, being mean, taking things personally, etc. With all those things the first thought that crosses my mind is, we really do put forward a lot of hatred to one another when we should be empowering and caring for one another. Not only are we judging strangers but we are also judging the ones that we love and surround ourselves with every day.
This year I made a promise to myself, and I want everyone who reads this to try this on for themselves. This year I will not judge and I will not take things personally. In a world with so much hatred I've made a commitment to be that one person to make a difference and show love and care to all the people I surround myself with. We are all unique individuals but why do we all judge and make fun of others? There is no right way to be, if you want tattoos and piercings you go do it, if you want be to be loud talkative person you be loud and talk your face off.
In the words of Shia Labeouf JUST DO IT!
Not only that but just be you, be authentic. Who is someone to say how you should look, or act. Like I said we are all unique individuals so embrace yourself, love yourself, and spread the love and care to everyone you come across, who knows you might be that person to brighten someone bad day just by giving them a smile, being nice to them or showing respect to them, or even just saying "hope you have a good day" could make a huge difference to someone whether you know them or not.
I'm not going to lie, I was pretty down when I woke up this morning but when I went upstairs and looked at myself in the mirror I said, why the fuck am I so down today? Why waste a day being sad, over thinking, stressing about adulting life, etc. when I could be happy and relax. Some days you do need to be sad and I have those days for sure and that is normal. But if there is no valid reason to be sad or angry, then why waste a beautiful day when you can turn that around and create a positive day for yourself and maybe for someone else.
We are all human, shit happens sometimes, no reason to be negative about it. We tend to forget that life is precious and it can be taken away just like that. Live everyday like it's your last, bring love and care to the table instead of being angry about what someone said to you last week. Love who you are, love what you do, love the people around you, respect everyone, take risks, and live life to the fullest because you only got one life so you might as well enjoy every damn second of it.
I hope this post either brightened someone's day or made an impact on someones life. I really enjoyed making this post and there will be more post like this in the future. Again, this year I want to show more love and care to everyone, embrace life, and do the things that make me happy and I hope you all do the same. I will now be enjoying the rest of my day off watching trashy tv shows, drinking tea, and cuddling my pup.
