Time is Love

“Love fears only one thing: Time.” – Anonymous

I think one of the biggest indications of love is time. They are perfectly intertwined. When I think about it, the people that love me most in my life are people that would make time for me no matter what. Whether it’s 4am in the morning or they’re occupied with something else, they’re there for me no matter what.

If you really think about it there are a select few individuals in your life that would drop everything for you. Time is love. You have to spend the time, you have to be there, as a friend, as a parent, as a relative, and as a spouse. Whether it’s convenient for you or not. This is not an easy feat, but it’s an important one.

Now this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be there in the flesh. For some of us that isn’t possible, but invest the time in supporting the person, whether that’s on the phone, through email or text. Ask how they’re doing, especially when someone is going through a hard time. Remember that the smallest things in life can mean the most to those in your life.

You can’t touch time, you can’t buy time, but it’s the most valuable thing in the world. Spend yours wisely.

Out With the Bad, In With the Good

I often wonder why people keep toxic relationships in their life. Whether it’s a relative, friend, or their boss. Constant negative energy is poison and it’s bound to rub off on you when you’re constantly surrounded by it. You should not feel obligated to keep a negative person in your life no matter what your relationship is to them. If someone makes you more sad or upset then they do happy, this is not a healthy relationship. If they bring you down, out they go.

I’ve learned to keep my atmosphere and environment positive. I spend time with people who are outgoing, happy, and make the best of everything. When I’m with people who are smiley and genuinely love life, I find myself happier in their presence. Their energy and zest is contagious.

Make a healthy decision for yourself. Out with the bad apples, make room for all of the good people in your life.

Embedded

We grow accustomed to family and friends being in our lives. We grow up with the same friends and family by our sides, go away to school where we’re surrounded by strangers who soon become best friends, and before you know it you’re moving on again.

All of these people have an impact on who we were, who we are, and who we will become. It’s comforting to know you always have someone to lean on, someone who will be there come hell or high water, and no matter how busy life may get, these people will not fall by the wayside. Life moves quickly and stops for no one, when we lose one of these special people we love it can feel like we were hit by a train and all of a sudden our equilibrium is thrown. We have to adjust as we have no other option. I still find myself thinking things like “I wonder what my Poppa would think of this or I wonder what advice Grandma would give about this problem.” They’re still with me every single day. They’re embedded into my life and nothing can take that away.

I’m lucky to have many people in my life who have stood by me through thick and thin. My parents support me no matter what my goals and aspirations are, my friends pick me up when I fall or take me to get a strong drink when words and hugs can’t solve an issue. Don’t take these people for granted. Ensure you’re always there for them too, we all need someone to vent to, someone who gets us, someone who will always be on our side even if we’re wrong, and someone who loves us unconditionally.

Quality make up does not have to break your bank! For over a year I’ve been wearing Motives make up. Motives is manufactured in the same factory as Mac yet sold for a fraction of the price. I used to spend unspeakable money on shadows, foundation, and mascara from Mac.

Since switching to Motives I’ve seen an improvement in my skin and bank account. I endorse their products so much that I recently became a sales rep! I don’t wear a ton of make up. I like the more natural look. Foundation, powder, mascara, eyeliner, and a lip gloss is my daily regime.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Our emotions can get the best of us, it’s inevitable. Apologize when needed, admit to your wrongdoings, and make things right. Being the bigger person isn’t always the easiest thing to do but it’s always the right thing to do.
