Lonely nights in my room lead me to do a lot of thinking and by a lot, I mean A LOT! My mind starts working from left to right, pulling in memories from left and right. I start reflecting on myself and my life, and that leads me to realizing how darn lucky I am to be here right now, living my life. It makes me realize how blessed to have a family who loves me unconditionally no matter what and friends that are there for me no matter what. I’m so thankful for everyone who has come into my life and has decided to stay and continue this crazy, adventurous journey with me. I mean, I know we all have our ups and downs, but having those people that mean SO much to you by your side at the end of the day really means more than anyone can understand. Sometimes it’s so hard to say how grateful you are, especially if there aren’t enough ways to say it.. So I try and write it down, like I am trying to do now, but again, it’s hard to try and express my feelings exactly, especially because I just can’t explain how truly grateful I am.
So I would just like to Thank everyone who has come into my life and has decided to stay and continue this journey of life with me. You guys don’t know how much I appreciate it! I honestly, from the bottom of my heart love you all to bits. xo <3

I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.

Beauty is not something that we only find in looks. Beauty can be found everywhere around us.. in people, nature, things, feelings, objects, thoughts, music, books, accomplishments, mistakes, memories… everything. Everything in life is beautiful, but some people simply fail to see it because we have this thing in our head that makes us forget what real beauty is and every little thing that we should be thankful for in life. The beauty of life; the life that we were given to live. The chance we were given, the family and friends that we have, the house we live in, the things we have, the people that we/ that love and care for us… The list goes on and on and on! There are little things in life that we forget about because we’re so busy focusing on all the big things. We forget about the little things that make us smile and that mean the most. The things that honestly don’t take much effort and are always there. Simple things, little things. We have to take time to realize these things around us and be thankful and grateful for what we have and what we have around us. Next time, before judging something or someone take time to actually think about the person or thing before making a false judgement. Get to know someone before throwing it down and stomping on it. Guaranteed your outlook on things, people and life will change. Things will only get better. Life is beautiful, enjoy it, smile.

This is something that I strongly agree with. You don’t need money to be happy. Money can buy us things, but real happiness is earned. Putting a price on happiness is like putting a price on life. I know that money is something that we rely on for living as long as it’s used for the right thing. Money buys us a temporary happiness but after a while your true feelings come back. Happiness depends upon ourselves, meaning what we do, what we accomplish, what we feel, how we look at situations, etc. Happiness comes from within. Just because someone is “rich” doesn’t mean that they’re happy.. You may have everything in the world that you want and feel miserable, because there’s that one thing inside that’s missing. Happiness. Just because someone is “poor” doesn’t mean that their life is miserable. They may not having everything they want in life but they make the best of what they have. If people were to constantly put a price on everything then what kind of life would we be living? Be thankful for what you already have in life. Be thankful for the people that you have around you; family, friends! Make the best of what you already have and be grateful that you have been given a chance to live this life. :)

I’ve been listening to the new Hedley album, Storms, for the past two hours. It is so inspirational! Every single song, everything about it is just wonderful. I’m in love with it. Listening to it has been making me reflect on so many things. It’s making me realize all that I have and how lucky I am to have it.
One, Family. They continuously show unconditional love, support, understanding, happiness, joy and more towards me. I know we’ve been through hard and tough times, but no matter what we have always stuck together in the hardships and problems that we’ve encountered. We’ve gone through SO much together, no one knows. My parents are two of the strongest people that I know in my life. My parents and brother are the best, they really are. I’m so lucky to call them mine! They’re MY family. Gah, I love them so much, it’s indescribable. I have so much to thank them for, I’m so appreciating and grateful for everything they have ever done for me and everything that they continue to do. I wish they knew how much I love them. I would rip out my heart and hold it out in my hands to show them how much I care, appreciate and love them. I can keep going on. I love them with all my heart and more.
Two, Friends. I’m so lucky to have such great friends that are always there to listen, help and put up with me, hah. They show so much support no matter what. We can always have a good time no matter where we are or what we do. They make all my worries go away. I love them so much, they’re the sisters that I’ve never had. We’ve stuck through so much, our friendship is so unbelievably strong it’s unbreakable and it continues to get stronger each and everyday that passes by. I’m so grateful to have them in my life, and even more grateful that they’ve stuck around. I know I can always count on them for anything I need. I love them so much, they’re my sisters. I wish they knew how much I appreciate and love them.
Three, God. God, thank you so much for sticking by my side no matter what, I’m sorry that I haven’t been as appreciating and thankful as I should have been. Thank you for staying by my side and helping me to make the right decisions. Thank you for never leaving me and always having faith in me to be the best that I can be. Thank you for never giving up on me. Thank you for your unconditional love. I love you so much, I hope you know that.
Four, everything that I have, everything that I own, everyone that is a part of my life, everyone that has taken the time to get to know me, everyone I’ve met, everyone that has helped pick me up when I was down, everyone that helped me get through good and bad times. I’m so thankful for everything right now, Everything, Everyone. I’m so grateful for everything that I have in life. All the little things. All the big things. EVERYTHING.
Life is honestly so beautiful and if you don’t believe me please change your way of thinking, stop being so negative. Start believing. Think of all the good that the world has to bring. This world is a beautiful place and your life is a beautiful part of it. Look at all the good in everything instead of the bad, please, it will help make a difference in your life. Start being grateful for everything that you already have, instead of thinking of all the things that you don’t have and are missing. You’re not missing anything. You have everything that you need in your life already. Things will get better, just be patient. Life is so beautiful, it’s just waiting for you to discover it.
I can’t describe how I’m feeling right now.. Happy, Emotional. But a Happy emotional. I feel accomplished and lucky to have been given this life to live. I can’t thank everyone enough. I’m almost speechless. You guys are all my strength to carry on. Once again, THANK YOU All for anything and everything that you have ever done for me, and I mean it. I’m so thankful and grateful for all of you that have come into my life. I love you!

Family to me is one of the most important things ever in the entire world. I wouldn’t be here and I would be nothing without them! They have helped me through so much! They’ve helped me grow into the young woman I am today, they have helped me learn right from wrong, good from bad, there’s just so much that i’m thankful for that it would take forever to mention everything. My parents are the two people that I want to thank the most! They are two of the strongest people that I have ever known in my entire eighteen years of living! I know that they’re always there for me no matter what! I know they always do and always will have my back! I know we may get into some arguments at times and we may disagree on certain things, but at the end of the day I know that my parents still love me, and I love them with all of my heart and more. I’m lucky to have two parents like them, they’re one of kind, and i’m lucky to say that they’re mine! My younger brother is like my friend, we may argue and pick on each other, but it’s what siblings do. He knows that I love him no matter what happens. Thank you Davide or putting up with me! We’ll always be there for each other. I know I don’t say it enough, but Mommy, Daddy & Davide, I want to thank you for everything that you’ve ever helped and done for me, there are not enough words and not enough actions to show how much I appreciate everything! Thank you for everything and all the love that has been sent my way! I love you guys so much you have no idea. I would rip out my heart and give it to you if I could. I LOVE You guys SO much & ALWAYS will! <3
