Tell People What They Mean To You

Positive Outlooks Blog

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break hearts too. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you’ll cry because time is flying by. So take a lot of pictures, laugh whenever you can, and love like you have never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees. You just have to live life to the fullest. Tell someone what they mean to you and sometimes speak your mind. Dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend and fall asleep watching the sun go down. Smile until your face hurts. Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love. Most of all, live in the moment, because every second you spend angry or upset is a second…

Some People Are Just Passing Through

Positive Outlooks Blog

Maybe some people just aren’t meant to be in our lives forever. Maybe some people are just passing through. It’s like some people just come through our lives to bring us something: a gift, a blessing, a lesson we need to learn. And that’s why they’re here. You’ll have that gift forever. Danielle Steele, The Gift

A Smile That Survived The Tears

Positive Outlooks Blog

There is nothing more beautiful and powerful than a smile that has struggled through the tears. Don’t regret your time, even the moments that were filled with hurt. Smile because you learned from it and gained the strength to rise above it. In the end, it’s not what you have been through  that defines who you are; it’s how you got through it that has made you the person you are today, and the person are capable of being tomorrow. — Unknown

Flip Flop

 

 

Writing

 

Writing Prompt: Think of a topic or issue about which you’ve switched your opinion. Why the change?

This one is really difficult for me because I’m one of those people who has an opinion and sticks to it… I’m rarely swayed about something, but one thing I have swayed on is the idea of plastic surgery. I was always felt like it was a cop out, people who can’t love and accept themselves get plastic surgery. I’ve gotten older (and hopefully a little wiser) and as a person who feels like you “it’s your body, do what you want”, that should apply to plastic surgery as well. People do it for all reasons, and if you want to give yourself a little tweek or a nip and tuck TREAT YO SELF….

And I guess depending on who you ask ?I would be considered a hypocrite if I was totally against plastic surgery….. especially considering I’ve had a breast reduction when I was 18 years old, because I was sick and tired of carry around two gallon boobs around, and yes eventually I was told that it was causing my back pain, and I had these horrible bruises on my shoulder because my boobs were so heavy, but honestly I had a breast reduction because wearing two or three bras just to feel secure was a pain, hating my body because my boobs were so big was even worst.

I wanted to look better and I knew that getting the surgery was the answer, I had been thinking about it since I was 15, and when I graduated high school and went off to college, I made an appointment with a plastic surgeon and went to the consultation alone without my mother’s consent (hell I was 18 technically I was an adult), my doctor refused to do the surgery unless I told my parent and they came in for a second consultation….. needless to say I told her my plans (at the time , she wasn’t really happy about it, I think that she was more worried than anything else, but she knew my desire to have the surgery so she went along with it)..needless to say I had the surgery, and I have never regretted my decision, and yes there was a change in the way I dressed and saw my body.

Long story short…. my high school logic  was it’s okay for me and not for anyone else because I was in a “dire situation”…. 30 year old Tyra thinks as long as you’re not hurting yourself… go ahead….

So yes I guess technically that would make me a flip-flopper

 

Until Next Time
