I was in a photoshoot yesterday morning and the photographer kept repeating “smile like you love your life more than anything!” …
This statement really got to me. You shouldn’t have to smile “like you love your life” – – you should love your life. Yes we all have awful days, sad days, frustrating days, disappointing days, lonely days etc… but we get to choose our state of mind and how we are going to make our days the best they can possibly be.
I know for certain that if you love your life it will love you right back – – and the harder you work at maintaining a positive and happy mindset, the more positivity and happiness will flood your world. Whether you are the richest person or the poorest, a model or the girl the next door, hilarious or serious, a mom of 3 or a career centered woman – – we are all equal and we can all be happy with our lives, if we choose to be.
I don’t remember a time when I didn’t love my life – – yes there have been bad times but I am proud of who I am, what I’ve accomplished and everything I’ve worked through to get to where I am today. I hope you can all say the same!
If you don’t love your life, it’s time for a change and it’s up to you to make that change and to move forward – – not to stay stuck in the past! Be strong, continue to grow and learn and choose happiness everyday!
