Dear reader, I hope this article finds you. As we all know, 2020 is the worse year ever. Shocking celeb deaths, deaths to COVID, and wrongful deaths to people of color. In the midst of all this chaos in the world that affects me too I have also been dealing with my own personal tragedies.

Lesson one Learn when to let go.

-This is a tough pill to swallow; friends, former lovers, and others who aren't doing us justice must leave. A wise woman by the name of Maya Angelou once said; "When people show you their true colors, believe them." I've tried so many times to paint people in pretty colors because my weakness is always seeing the good in others.

Lesson 2 Let Life Happen

No matter how many times you try, you can't always change the outcome of anything. A lot of bad things happen to us in order to shape us into who we are meant to be. Because after all, if we never bleed we're never gonna grow.

Lesson 3 Stand up for what you believe in..yourself included.

what world problems are you passionate about and you believe you can somehow change. Never lose hope; because change is inevitable. And believe in yourself- never forget how wildly capable you are. You were born for a reason; find it.

Lesson 4 Stupid love

quotes, self love, and important image
Love, love,love we all want it. But sometimes you know when someone is your person and sometimes you will surely know that they are definitely not your person. Be brave anyway throw caution to the wind; be silly and in love but never stop loving.

Be compassionate

This is a time to show people kindness still exits- what goes around comes around.
  • Work hard for your dreams*

Effort will never fail you. Keep going.

Learn to dance in the middle of chaos or a pandemic

Because life is too short-be free, lively, and let the hurts in life rain all over you. You'll be dry again, but in the meantime dance..as if your life isn't crumbling. Dance because everything will make sense again someday....
  • Embrace being human*
quotes, love, and love quotes image
We all do "stupid" things from time to time but we do it because we are human. And pain doesn't make us weak, it makes us stronger. So put your heart on the line and don't be ashamed of it.

Never underestimate the power of friendship

Something that I recently learned. Friendships can last a long time and the right people will boost you up and have your back.

"Life won't always easy or perfect, pain is temporary. Hang on, have faith, and live. Even if you're hurt.
