It is almost a new year and so of course I am thinking about all of the things I want to accomplish. There is so much! I bet there’s a ton of stuff you want to do too. Maybe we need some inspiration…

That is right people. It is time to get motivated to better ourselves in 2015!! We will accomplish our goals and we will make it the best year yet! Get out there and get what you want!
This is not the year I got a puppy but look at how cute I was!
I was about 7 when my parents got me a puppy for Christmas. My room was downstairs and the living room was upstairs. I remember climbing the stairs up to the living room. The lights were all off and the tree was ablaze with lights. It was beautiful.
As I made my way to the top of the stairs I could see the presents that covered the floor. They started from under the Christmas tree and spread like roots outward. There was one box that started to move. What in the world is that?! As I grew closer the box began to move even more. When I finally reached the box a small, fluffy, white head popped out. It was like a scene out of a movie. We named that little guy Snowball.
I learned when I was older that my parents had a rough time with Snowball. They had picked up the puppy the day before and had him sleep in their room. He pooped and peed all over their room. I guess he was a bit of a demon puppy.
We gave Snowball away shortly after Christmas. He chewed everything and even burrowed a hole into a wall. He wasn’t very nice and needed a home that could train him better.
While my relationship with Snowball may not have lasted, that memory is one of my fondest. It was very special and learning what my parents dealt with to make it happen, for me, is the best part.
What is your most fond Christmas memory?
Hunting through Pinterest, per usual, I found this image that resinated with me. I felt compelled to share it with all of you. I feel like it is all too easy to put on fronts for people because we may think it will make us more like-able or to fit in. I think we all do it at some point. I love this quote because I agree that when we fully embrace who we are we then feel more confident with ourselves and I think that may come off as beauty. For a long time I didn’t want to admit that I loved My Little Pony and Taylor Swift but, with the help of blogging, I have learned to embrace these joys of mine. I love getting down to some TS and I really enjoy watching My Little Pony. That show is awesome and people who want to make fun of me for liking it aren’t good friends. If they were they wouldn’t care.
I think that learning to truly embrace who you are is a very difficult task to complete. It takes learning to let go of the fear you have about other people’s opinions. You have to stay strong and stick to your guns. That is a little scary but in the end completely worth while.
Please remember that you are beautiful, smart, fun, and interesting. You have so much to offer the world. Be yourself and show how beautiful you are.
Keep your chin up. We are all routing for you.
Tomorrow is a new day and no matter what happened today, tomorrow is your chance to turn it around.
