Things you need to remind yourself of.

You know that trip you don’t know if you want to go one because you might regret going or you think you have better things to do if you stay? Go anyway. Go because chances are you’ll love it. Chances are you won’t miss anything while you’re gone and you’ll spend your time wondering what if would have been like to go. This also applies to so many other things in life. Just go, do, try. You’ll probably regret not doing it.
Enjoy every single precious second. They may seem pointless or not so great at the moment but one day, whether a week or three years later, you’ll look at pictures or think of memories and wish so desperately that you could go back. I know it all seemed so much better then but that’s just what you’ll always think. What is better is right now. Right this second. 
You’re going to get hurt. More hurt than you ever thought you’d experience. It’s life. It will happen no matter how much you guard your heart. Don’t let it make you bitter. Don’t let it harden you. Remember that it happens to us all and that it will only make you stronger. There’s nothing like that hurt to make you appreciate all you have.
Sometimes you’ll feel really alone. People you thought you knew so well will turn on you. You’re going to wonder what you did wrong and why you’re so alone. Just remember that you did all you could. People more incredible than you could have ever imagined will find their way to you. Be patient and find comfort in that.
Take a moment to just be in love with everything around you. Take a moment to look around in awe and thank God for what you have, whether good or bad. You’re alive and that in itself is the most beautiful thing. It’s not always going to be hard so take a moment to be thankful that it gets better. There’s beauty in even the hardest of times.

    Because currently I've been feeling that a lot in certain places I go. Most people already have close friends so they form cliques with them and talk with them and I feel left out quite often.

    1. So glad I could help, lady! I definitely know how you feel. I wrote this earlier this year and that feeling still resonates with me at times.
      If I was closer, I'd be friends with you in a heart beat!

  3. This is a really great post :) It's hard sometimes, when we KNOW these things, but can't always bring them to mind when you're actually upset.
    Had a tough weekend and this way of thinking, of being thankful of things, is really helpful!

    Also - this post is super appropriate for thanksgiving month :)
