Life Lessons + Selling Cookies To Strangers

3:00 PM

A recent realization I've had is that I never post about myself. I'm always posting some sad writing piece I conjured up, or some song I fell in love with. Nothing with personal depth.

Today, I've decided to change that by telling you about my recent life learnings.

+ With the start of the new month I've started many new WIP projects - as well as a business project for Nicole Rose Designs. :) I'm super excited and I hope to share some details of this with you guys later. So stay tuned! This lesson: stay focused, believe, and you will get to where you want to be.

+ It's October now and we all know what that means. Halloween! I'm super excited. I have no idea what I'm going to be. Maybe a uni-human, or perhaps a cigarette (so I can go up to people and say "Hey, look at me! I'm a metaphor!"). This lesson: be who you want to be. Express yourself.

+ Lately I've been contemplating life and the brilliant persistence it takes to live. There are so many things I've learned about me and about others, it's crazy. This world is crazy. But I love it. I'm actually really starting to love it. This lesson: Being alive is such a blessing. It's a true gift. No one should give it up.

+ On Sunday I stood in the freezing cold for over three hours, trying to sell cookies to people at a flea market. It was fun but exhausting beyond measurability. I told my mother that I should staple the bags of cookies to the inside of the coat I stole from her friend then go up to someone and be all like: "Hey, dude. *opens up coat* Yah wanna buy somethin'?" We both laughed rather hard at this. This lesson: don't be afraid to laugh at yourself.

+ School takes up so much of my time, it's rather amazing I have any energy to do other things. Of course, in the time I do have I tend to procrastinate and tell myself one more episode of Criminal Minds won't hurt. This lesson: try not to it's okay to procrastinate.

+ I want to do something spectacular. I want to start a movement. I want to inspire. I also want to know how I'm going to do that. This lesson: develop big dreams, but also develop plans for those dreams.

+ Before I end this post I just want everyone to know that the words you say or type have a great impact on people so never ever say something you don't mean or you will deeply regret it. This lesson: watch what you say. Words hurt.

I guess that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed this unusual post. Make sure you share this post because, why not? Also, check me out on tumblr, instagram, pinterest, or google plus.

Until next time,
