This is something that I’ve told myself and others time and time again. For almost my whole life I’ve kept everything bottled up inside and put on a good show for everyone else. I’d let things eat me up inside to the point where I’d burst and lose it. I know this is an issue that a lot of people have. Put on a happy front and take care of others around you, your own happiness isn’t as important as everyone else.

I’m writing about this because in the new year I’m going to try and change my ways. I’m going to put myself first every once in awhile and I challenge you to do the same. Yes, it is important to make sure the people in your life are happy but you shouldn’t do this without making sure that you’re taken care of too.

If you’re having a bad day, laugh it out..cry it out..scream it out! Whatever you have to do to make yourself cheer up, do it! Life is way too short to be sad or keep things bottled up inside until you combust. Do it for yourself, be happy.

Just a little food for thought my loves. Until next time..
