Tell Yourself 'Yes'

Do it.

Tell yourself 'Yes'.

Once a day. Life is too short to limit yourself. If you want something, go get it.

Say yes to the simple things, the extra scoop of ice cream, the friend who asked you to go out when you have a million other things you could be doing, the date that you're nervous to go on because your crazy best friend set it up (but she's sure you'll like this one).

Say yes to the big things. Take chances. Because if you don't, you could be missing out on something you've been waiting your whole life for. When life hands you an opportunity, take it. You're shaping your life now. Do it for you. Do it for the person you've always wanted to be.

Tell yourself 'Yes'. See what happens.

I'm Here.

I'm here.

Here is learning.
Here is becoming independent, and finding out who I'm meant to be.

Here is realizing that I can't please everyone.
Here is finding the people who are worth trying to please.

Here is stress.
The good kind of stress, 
The kind that forces me to take steps to accomplish what I want in life.

Here is family.
Here is taking time to appreciate the little things,
The things that shaped me.

Here is memories.
Here is pain.
Here is hope.

Here is gaining strength.
Here is rising above, refusing to drown.
Here is knowing that mistakes don't shape you.

I'm here.
Here is not my final destination, but it's a stop along the way.
I'm getting there.
But here, here is where I am today, and here is okay.
