This is my happy face. I can genuinely say that I am happy with my life. I’ve always had a passion for working out, but I’ve strengthened that passion by taking up weight lifting and learning proper nutrition (yoga too, even though I’m not as consistent with that as I’d like to be).
I have some things in my life that I could choose to get me down. But I don’t let it get to me. Am I still angry/hurt? Of course. Do I let it rule my life, how I view myself and how I treat others? No. At this point in my life, I am completely focused on my own happiness. I’ve chosen to rid of negative influences and be the best Katie I can be. There will always be people that will hurt you and betray you, but the only person that can define you is yourself. I think it’s important to have happiness radiate from within, and not have it depend on other people. It’s the difference between the sun in the sky and a light bulb- the sun is there day after day and the only person who controls the sun is well…the sun. But a light bulb is fragile- it can be turned on and off by a switch, or shattered if dropped. (I’m not sure if this is the best analogy ever, but you get my point haha)
Of course everyone has days where they get upset, myself included, and feel like life’s just not fair. But then I remember to smile and think about how through whatever emotions are plaguing me, I still have this inner peace that I feel and that I’ll be okay :)
