CONFIDENCE

#ThoughtsbyKatieNot getting embarrassed so easily and being more confident is something I myself am always working on. In real life I can actually be quite shy at times and it's not always easy for me to open up to people. For instance, if wasn't until a couple years ago where I truly found my voice and started to become more open and confident. As I've gotten older, I've gotten more confident with who I am, but like any normal person I still struggle at times with feeling truly confident in my own skin. I believe that in order to achieve true confidence we must first continue to grow through life and learn to love ourselves. This takes time but I...

MY SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

#ThoughtsbyKatie I was looking back at my journal that I started last August and found this entry from this past September that I wanted to share. For about 6 months straight I would daily journal because something inside of me told me that I needed to. Automatic writing became a spiritual outlet and it gave me the idea of maybe writing a book eventually. Although I'm not daily journaling at the moment, I still write when I feel like it because I don't want my words to be forced. I'm sharing this because it's something I keep inside of me and only talk about with a few people. Keep in mind this feeling only lasted for so long. It now...

STANDING UP FOR YOURSELF

#ThoughtsbyKatie Everyone is placed in certain situations or goes through something that they don't think deserve nor truly understand. The other day I went through something that may have given me a deeper perspective on how people can act, but it also left me feeling unsettled. We are placed in these situations for a reason. Bad things happen to make you stronger and more aware that you are capable of dealing with anything thrown in your direction. I'm not going to get into what I went through the other day, that doesn't matter anymore and I'm leaving it in the past, but I'm not going to lie and say it didn't affect me. I used to think that it was...

PUTTING OTHERS BEFORE YOURSELF

#ThoughtsbyKatie Live freely, give freely, behave freely, and create freely. We are meant to be free. We are meant to do what we love. But you cannot do what you love and live freely without making sacrifices and putting others before yourself. We are not meant to isolate ourselves from the world. While creating, discovering, and gaining spiritual growth, never forgot about others around you. Although we need silence to further grow and create, we need human connection to put our words into actions. You need others to test your patience and awareness. You cannot do everything on your own. Once you accept the fact that you sometimes need help from others, you will also learn to accept your life...
