    I couldn’t agree more. Women, well men too, need to own their joy. Make decisions toward that best life. Also not in your post but, it is healthy heart month. Take care of the health they have. Exercise, eat right, visit your physician when you think you need to. Preventative health, I failed myself and I want everyone to learn from my mistakes.

    I do think for myself. I am learning to worry less about what others thing about me and doing what makes me happy. I sometimes fall of the wagon for it is a journey .

    I have my Birthday soon and your post reflects how I feel. I should think less of others and more of myself. There are no real limits.

    Time really goes by so fast! With age I have become more wiser in thinking for myself and not worrying about what other think of me. I am a strong, independent and smart woman. I try to surround myself with positive people and to be kind and not pass judgement Doing what makes you happy with passion and purpose is what it is all about.

    I agree with all of this! As I’ve matured, my f*cks and worries of people’s perception of me has diminished greatly.

    i totally agree! thank you for sharing these because it’s totally true and definitely something i’m going through right now as I’m heading to my mid-20’s! especially the part about other’s perception of you!

    Really love that dress. For me its seems like the older that I get, the more stressed out that I get. I am slowly working on it to take a step back and take a breather.

    These are such good points! I’ve been working hard lately on not caring what other people think as much. It’s been difficult, but rewarding.

    I agree and wrote a similar post a couple of months ago. Also, I have the feeling the older I get, the less I care about what others think of me 🙂 One perk of getting older haha.

    This is such a great post – really inspiring. You’re so true though, it’s inportant to be happy in life and take control. You offer great advice on how to do that too!

    I totally agree with you! I have come to a point in my life when I hardly give a crap about what others think, unless of course it’s anyone from my family or someone I truly care about. 🙂

    This is something I really started “living” in 2017 so I absolutely LOVE this post! I am 42 years old and my first 41 years were basically lived for other people…or at least lived to garner their approval. It is super important and freeing for us to begin to live our own lives, create our own joy and happiness and just do whatever our hearts lead us to do! Thanks for such a great post!

    This is a great point of view. I totally agree with you. Just a post that I really need.

    Couldn’t agree more!! I’ve really been trying hard to focus much less on what other people think of me and to focus more on doing what’s right for me!

    I am approaching the big 5-0! I can definitely attest to the line about taking care of your skin. (Don’t forget your neck! lol) I was nodding my head as I read your post. You’re right about not sweating the small stuff in our youth and not being afraid to show people who you really are. After all, who wants to be loved for someone they are not?

    I love that the older I get, the less I care about people’s perceptions of me. While I do desire to be well-liked, I am becoming more confident in the skin I’m in!

    This is great advice. I can’t imagine living your entire life trying to please others and not do what you want.

    Great post of wisdom to follow your bliss! As they say, be yourself, because everyone else is taken =). I celebrate this milestone and rite of passage as you becoming wiser and wiser unto yourself <3

    I can really resonate with this as I approach the big 3-0! I have been focusing so much on just doing what makes me happy rather than just doing what has to get done even if it makes me miserable. There is always a loophole!


  27. Ana De-Jesus
    March 20, 2018 @ 8:53 pm

    I couldn’t agree any more. It is so important to focus on what makes us happy and not worry about what people think of us, although that can be hard to overcome. I always used to be someone who would care about what other people think but now I am learning to be happy. On another note you are beautiful and I love this outfit on you!

    Love this post! I’ll be turning the big 3-0 next year, and I’ve been trying not to dread it because seriously, there’s so much to look forward to!

    I think for me turning 30 was a big eye-opener. This might sound odd but learning to do what makes me happy and worry less about what others think is not something that I did until I became a mom.

    This is amazing advice! I am in my mid-twenties and it so essential to grow out of the mindset of trying to please everyone else instead of yourself. At this point in your life, you are living for yourself (and maybe your child, if you have one) and no one else. So it is necessary to start making decisions based on how you want YOUR life to go.

    This is such a good reminder! Sometimes it’s hard to remember these things when you go through every day life!

    Such great advice!! I’m still trying to learn how to let other people’s perceptions of me go and just focus on myself! Difficult, but so important!

    Could not agree more. It’s so hard to not worry about what others think but I swear if you can NOT care it’s the key to happiness.

    March 22, 2018 @ 12:41 pm

    Yes, totally agree with all of this! I definitely think you’re a happier person if you stop caring so much what others think.

    First off – you are GORGEOUS!

    Secondly, I totally agree. I have struggled with taking the time to worry about myself and only about others. Not that it is a bad thing, but when it directly affects my happiness, state of mind, and self-love, then it became an issue for me!

    xo, L

    I totally agree with these. Doing what makes you happy is extremely important. I find that I make decisions based on whether I’ll be happy with the outcome in the long run.

    I am so thankful that my life wasn’t all downhill once I turned 18. In fact, I’ve found it to be the opposite.

    It is so important to take care of ourselves before taking care of others. You can’t pour from an empty glass!
