Motivational Monday: Just Take One More Step

Isn't it weird when you look back from your old photos and realize how much you've grown in just a little amount of time? I've been one of those people who think that their dreams are just too far away and too hard to reach. However, as hardships come by and as we face through challenges along the way, we grow and we elevate more and more towards that dream that seemed so far away when we first started. It's normal to feel hopeless at times, and it's normal to feel tired; however, what's important is how we learn to regain hope and stand up at the midst of our mistakes and weaknesses.

It doesn't matter how far the distance is because what truly matters is the challenges you've overcome, people you've met, and events that have taught you wisdom. And that is how we grow. We grow as we learn from our mistakes. We grow as we overcome each obstacle. We grow as we learn to tolerate other people. We grow as we seek courage to reach our dreams. We grow, we learn, we discover, we experience, and we succeed.

At times when you feel down and hopeless, think of how far you've come. You're bound to reach your dreams, you just have to learn to take one more step, even if that step is waking up in the morning or submitting an application form. All you have to do is take that step to elevate more and more towards your dreams. 

Never give up on your dreams. Believe that you can. Take risks and you'll eventually find yourself living your dreams.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” 

Be better than who you were yesterday.

March Empties 2014

Hi everyone! Sorry for not having been posting these past few days. Just so you know, I am doing my favorites and empties posts in an alternating pattern. Since last month I did a favorites post, this month I'm doing an empties post. It's not every month that I find a lot of favorites, and it's also not every month that I have a lot of empties; so this is what I'm doing. Let me know what you think about this idea on the comments down below. 

1. Raspberry Peach Macaron candle. Oh my gosh! I have been burning this up for the whole month. I was using this candle every day this month, which is a rare thing for me since I like switching up fragrances. This is my favorite from the Sweet Shop collection of Bath and Body Works. I would totally repurchase it!

2. Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer. Hands down, this is my most favorite moisturizer since last year! I've been religiously using this product over the past year. I love this product! It so moisturizing, and it has SPF 15 on it. It's definitely a drugstore must-have. Totally repurchasing it.

3. Simple Kind-to-Eyes Eye Make-Up Remover Pads. I love this product so much; I don't think I could find anything like it. My eyes get irritable and itchy easily, and this product is perfect for me because it doesn't make my sensitive eyes itch. Also, as a waterproof mascara lover, this is the perfect product! It really cleans my eye lashes really well without being too harsh. I've been repurchasing this for a long time, and I will continue to repurchase it. 

4. Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara. I seriously love this mascara. This is the perfect waterproof mascara for me. I use this every time I wear make-up. I also haven't found any product like it. I would repurchase it.

5. Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo. I love this product as a dry shampoo, but I had a really bad experience with the packaging. Its spray easily broke, and I wasn't able to use to it since then. It didn't even last for a week. It broke on my third try. I love the product in it, though. I would probably repurchase it if they change the packaging, but for now, I would not repurchase it.

6. Rimmel Glam' Eyes Precise Design Liquid Eyeliner Black Glamour. I loved this product before discovering the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. I loved the precision that it gave me when using it. However, it smudges really easily, and it's not the tip is not the easiest to use when you're only a beginner. I would not repurchase it. 

7. Aveeno Active Naturals Smoothing Body Wash in Pomegranate. I love me some great-smelling body wash! I also love body washes that are exfoliating. Put them together and we have a winner! I love, love, love this body wash! I have been using this for three months now. I would definitely repurchase it.

Reader Appreciation Day

The Reader Appreciation Award is for those whose comments most appealed to me and touched my heart, and/or has been a loyal reader. I do this every week to give back to my dearest and most loyal readers. I feature their blog/s in a blog post. I describe what their blog is about, what they talk about, and some unique and interesting features/series that they do in their blogs.

The blog that I chose to feature today is Kara of Underneath the Sky. First off, I would really like to thank her for featuring me on her blog, and making me her inspiration to blog. I was really surprised and touched of her post mentioning my blog. I love her blog! Her blog is about encouragement, music, beauty, motivation, sports, and fashion. A little too much to handle? Ohh boy! She handles it really, really gracefully, let me tell you. I love how her blog is personal. I love the way she writes. I just ultimately love her style of blogging. She just started her blog, so I would really appreciate it if you guys go to her blog and follow her. She's really nice and friendly!

I hope you all are having a great week! xoxo

Motivational Monday: Happiness is a Choice

Happiness is a Choice, you are as happy as you choose to be.

Happiness is a state of being contented and/or a feeling of well-being or appeasement. I think happiness is key to everything, especially to success. You have to follow your bliss in order to live a life worth-living.

Happiness, I believe, is not the experiences nor the events, but rather, it's how you react upon them. Happiness comes from within you; therefore, you have full control over it. You control your own happiness. Always bear in mind that your emotions is not caused by events or moments in your life; it is caused by youhow you deal and accept each of them. Yes, you may experience certain mishaps and misfortunes, but don't ever let them stop you from being happy. Choose something else to put your focus on, something happier and more pleasant, something that will brighten up your day. 

Life is a very magnificent journey. Never waste your time not being happy. It's just not worth it.

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own.” 
― Dalai Lama XIV

Be better than who you were yesterday.
