Nobody tells you its okay to call yourself beautiful
Its okay to smile at mirrors and it is perfectly fine
to say your own eyes are pretty.
And it is wonderful to love your waist
and your legs, regardless of the size
and you are not conceited
if you use your fingers to list
everything you are good at
rather than point out your own flaws.
You can acknowledge you are smart
and that you will go places
and you will be someone greater than
your own mistakes.
You cannot always expect other people
to believe in YOU for YOU ❤
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness teal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe its a beautiful place.”

A friend recently posted an article of facebook about a happy day challenge. I read through the article and am going to give it a go.
Why would I want to start a 100 day happiness challenge? Because in life I really believe that we often take for granted all of the goodness and happiness that surrounds us. Somehow along our human evolution, we have evolved into viewing everything in life with a negative outlook. We like to seek the negative, think negative, and spread negative energy to those around us. We have become glass half empty peoples and I think we need to actively focus on searching for the good!
By starting a 100 day happiness challenge, I am going to be posting daily photos to my instagram- wefstef about something that makes me happy each day. Try to look at the brightness in everyday and find the beauty around you! It isnt easy, but even if you see a heavy storm rolling in recognize the beauty in the dark clouds ;p

What is stability? They make you think that stability means having a husband, kids, a house, and a fancy car. Everything in our society points us to believe that stability means having your life put together in a superficial way. We are taught to believe that we should buy a house on credit, finance our car, and then drive everyday to a job we hate just to pay for all the things society has sold us to believe means we are “making it”. However, that is all wrong. Just by creating a family and being owned by a piece of property does not mean we are necessarily stable. This is merely external stability.
I crave a deeper level of stability. I crave to know that I am mentally stable enough to handle every single situation that life throws my way. I need the reassurance that I am mentally strong enough and deep rooted to the soils of this beautiful, vast earth to survive on any terrain, village, or continent. I crave to know that I am stable enough to be challenged by others perspectives and acknowledge that my own view point might be wrong or misconceived. I crave to know that I can learn a third or forth language. I crave to be bold enough to make deep rooted connections with strangers who I sit next to on a bus, flight, or train. This is what I crave to maintain my own mental stability and strength.
As much as I would love to settle down, start a family, have a house, own a car, and finance a bunch of stuff I probably dont need; I think it would be the death of my mental stability. This mundane lifestyle would suffocate me to the point of death and I am afraid that it cannot be part of my future.
