“Do you believe that you are worthy of happiness? Do you believe that happiness, success abundance, comfort, fulfillment, peace, joy, love is a part of your birthright? Or do you believe something else? Because you will manifest the life that you believe.”

Oprah Winfrey (via strivingtounderstandourpurpose)

“Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit.”

this is a question i’ve asked myself countless times as of late. when a situation is stressful and i’m about to let myself freak out, i take a step back and ask myself: “is this situation really going to matter in a year?” if not, i shrug it off. if so, i take appropriate steps to correct the situation and move on. i’m not perfect, but this one question has helped me immensely. why worry? why get angry? why be miserable? the things we get upset about on a daily basis most likely won’t matter a week from now, let alone a year from now. perspective is key. don’t sweat the small stuff, and the big stuff won’t seem as scary.

still relevant.

Photo taken yesterday.

   My attitude towards “Hey, can you take a picture of so and so while I so and so…” is usually “Yeah, I can do that…”. My job is fun, and for the most part you learn something every time you’re out.

   When an Olympic athlete asks you to take some photos for a new line of work, that “Yeah” turns more into “Whaaaaa????!! Definitely.” So today, I did just that. At the beach. The shots will be more refined in the future, but just to kind of warm up and try to figure out the end goal we took some shots down at the beach. Here are a few for now…

Olympic Athlete Chantae McMillan in St. Augustine, Florida. (By the way, she does the heptathlon, in the track and field division. 1 or 2 events clearly isn’t enough. 7 is required.)

“Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.

And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.

How to keep moving forward, even when your brain hates you. (via socialrants)
