Sharing inspiration.

I just read a blog from one of my favorite musician and writer Chad Sugg, I related so much to what he had said that I want to share it.

“I’m pretty sure I’m like everyone you’ve ever met, and I’m like no one you’ve ever met.
I have the same emotions/feelings as everyone, I just express them differently.
I’m quiet. Until you get to know me
I get nervous about things most people probably wouldn’t even notice in day to day life.
I love humans.
I hate how humans treat each other.
I like things that make me feel nostalgic.
When I have nightmares, I wake up and have to turn my TV on to feel safe.
You know when people say they “have big imaginations”? Well, mine really does reach a bit too far at times, in both good and bad ways. It’s why I’m afraid of the dark. It’s also why I believe I like so many of the things I enjoy.
I don’t receive compliments well when they come from people who are close to me, I think it’s because I respect their opinions so much.
I love making friends, but it takes a certain kind of person for me to feel comfortable enough to talk to them regularly.
I hate negativity. (Is that a double negative?)
I like people helping people, and I like when people help people.

When are we gonna realize we’re all the same? We’re all hurting, happy, lost, beautiful, ugly, young, old, tired, learning, trying to forget, trying to remember, wandering, wondering, dreaming… But we don’t know it. We’re all so surprised to hear someone feels the same way as we do. We’re all so shocked when someone “gets it” like we do. Why is that?

I get it, we’re all different… But, I’m beginning to think that pales to the comparison of how alike we are. We all want to be different, but we also want to be the same. We want acceptance. We want love. We want to be heard. We want friends. We want it all.

We’re weird. Humans, that is.
I like it”.

The stuff in purple is stuff I added, otherwise it is no way my own words. Just something I 100% agree with and relate to.

On another note I just was directed to this musician Ed Sheeran and I am in love! Check him out … right now.

Okay time to take my sick self back to bed.

XOXO

Pop, Lock, and Drop It

I was reading random blogs about random stuff .. random right? Anyways there was one that talked about resolutions and talked mostly about the ever so common resolution: losing weight/getting healthy/exercising … you know THAT one.

I wonder how many people actually make that resolution each year? It’s a GREAT goal, resolution, plan (whatever you want to call it) but sadly not many people keep with it. I’ll admit I’ve made that goal, and have failed at it countess times. I’m human, it’s cool .. one of these days I’ll get it!

So within all these blogs there was a lot of pictures, with inspiring quotes to make you want to get up and start running or to go eat an apple.  Most of them though are so overused though that they are as effective as a big mac.  Then I saw it .. all shiny, bright, and glowing (okay okay it’s really not that epic) but it was more real to me then any of the other “It will be hard, but it will be worth it” quotes I read. Okay are you ready for it? Dim the lights! Ladies and Gentleman, I give you … The Truth!

You’re in awe, right? I know I know. It’s a shocking truth.. to think you could go to the gym and leave feeling (dare I say it?) Good?? Yep! It’s true! I’m pretty sure I’ve never left the gym going “ugh I really wish I didn’t work out tonight” one time I fractured my toe, and lost my toe nail in result of it and I still left satisfied!

I just need to make myself more accountable, maybe if I set up something on here and promise to be honest. Then if I don’t go to the gym, or I eat something god awfully delish but full of calories I could make you all promise to say horrible things to me or come throw a rock at me? That may be a little drastic but I’ll play around with some ideas.

If you have any ideas on how to keep myself more accountable you should comment below and let me know!

XOXO Kayla

 

Something I believe in so strongly but I forget so often! A while back I posted an idea about taking quotes and putting them on a poster. I plan on making that soon and this will Definitely be on it!!

Busy Busy Busy

Is everyone been as busy as I been? Holy hell this is the first night in umm Im not sure how long that I’m just home doing nothing. I shouldn’t even be doing nothing I have plenty to do .. Im just choosing not to :/ At least I have the option to chose that I guess. Haha.

Being busy is good though, so I don’t mind.

The weather has been BEAUTIFUL out!! A little hot the last few days .. but just weeks ago it was freezing here so I will not complain.

Last night after cleaning the garage for awhile Allie and I went to grab a margaritta and the weather was perfect out. I love it!

I came across this on stumble:

and I decided Im going to make something like this and put it next to my bed so I wake to all positive messages. I need to decide what quotes and sayings to use though. Any suggestions? What are quotes or sayings do you like, or that help motivate you?

 

 

Regret Nothing

Love youself

I saw this quote on one of the blogs I read (Goodmorning & Goodnight):

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” ~Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)

Such a beautiful quote, and very true. Love makes you want to better yourself and to make everything around you better. Then I thought about the fact that more then ever in this moment of my life I’m trying harder then I ever have to better myself and everything in my life. Then I realized .. it’s because I love myself more then I ever have before. The quote never mentions when you love someone else, just when you love.

Ona completely random note I thought I should mention … anytime I spell the word beautiful for some reason I have to say it in my head like b-e-a-utiful. Hahaha I know that’s from a movie but I can’t remember which .. does anyone know?

When nothing is owed, deserved or expected
And your life doesn’t change by the man that’s elected
If you’re loved by someone you’re never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it.

I am in awe of this photo. One of the most beautiful aspects of photography is one picture can mean so many different things to different people. A photo can remind someone of something they once knew, it can inspire them to do something, or to act a certain way, it can bring happiness, and it can bring sadness.

This photo inspires me, makes me hopeful, and it makes me happy.

To me it resembles uncertainty, hopefulness, and excitement. You can’t see what’s around the bend but you have a feeling whatever it is it’s going to be amazing. Which is how I feel about my life right now. I have no clue what the future has in store but I can feel inside of myself that it’s going to be filled with wonderful things.

I am also in love with this song from The Avett Brothers called “Head Full Of Doubt/Road Full Of Promise”. I encourage you all to go listen .. and to make it easy for you I’ve attached it below. Enjoy :)

It’s That Simple.

Raining On Sunday

This weekend has been busy, actually this week has been busy. I think today is my first day since … I’m not sure when (at least last weekend but maybe longer) that I’ve spent this much time at home.

A very much needed relaxing day filled with thunderstorms, cleaning, and cuddling with the animals.

Glad to see everyone made it through the Rapture ;) I never put any belief into the idea that it may happen on Saturday but it was fun to make jokes about it, and to have a false reason to go out and celebrate (on Friday .. you know just in case it was our last chance, and on Saturday to celebrate the fact it indeed was not true)

It’s been a gloomy weekend .. but I don’t mind. I love the sunshine, warm weather, and beautiful blue skies but I also love a cloudy day, and  the sound of rain pouring outside. For some reason it gives me a comforting feel. It brings me the same feeling that fall does and I love fall.

Sunday’s especially I love Rain. I think it’s because I love saving Sunday’s as a “lazy” day to do whatever I want and when it’s raining outside you have more of an excuse to hide under the covers with your puppy’s.

I spent a lot of time this weekend with my friend Allie. Her and I have been friends since we were in middle school. Our friendship has had it’s roller coaster moments but in the end we’ve alway’s been there for each other and no matter what we always find our way back to each other. She’s a beautiful person (inside and out) who I can laugh with uncontrollably no matter where we are or what we are doing. I love having her in my life. I know I can count on her for support, for laughter, for times I need to vent, and for times when we just want to have fun and of course she can count on me for all those things as well.

If you haven’t seen Bridesmaids definitely check it out! It’s a fun movie. I saw it with my Sister this weekend we both loved it. My mom and I will be going to see it as well. I recommend it for a fun girls outing!

I stumbled across this quote (literally) and loved it.

I think so many of us believe that you need to be perfect, and we keep searching for perfection. No matter how hard you try things will never be perfect and you will never be perfect. That’s just the way it’s supposed to be. Instead of trying to be perfect, try to love yours and others imperfections.

Toast to the future

Today sort of caught me off guard. To keep things hopefully drama free and not to stir up unwanted problems I am not going to go in to detail. To shortly sum it all up my Ex and I will be getting a divorce. I agree with the decision made, just felt it could of been done a way different way. With a lot more communication. Either way what’s done is done and I’m not going to dwell on it anymore. I hope he knows I truly do think he is a wonderful person, and I hope he is happy. I want to still stay friends, and I hope we will both be mature enough to do so. He’s one of my best friends .. and I want him to remain that.

Now time for my little pitty party to be over :) Back to loving my life and working on making it the best ever! I have the most amazing support system and they are who make my life so wonderful.

Thank you to everyone who is always there for me no matter what. Im one very very lucky girl.

I’m excited for the future .. I have so much positivity going on right now! This summer is going to be a lot of fun.. I can tell already.

P.S My legs kill from Zumba, but it’s such a wonderful pain :D
