Dear Miss 24,

Dear Miss 24,

As frightening as this phase in the unknown is, and let’s not forget the increasing societal pressures of things I’d rather not delve into at the moment,

Take a breath. Stay calm.
Saying aloud that you’ve already grown past two decades, is tough if you make it feel so.

Age is what but just a number that will remind you how much in experience and maturity you have grown. Let it not bother you because it bothers the society around. 

Let’s accept the fact that you are here, right this moment, right where you are planted to grow or to bloom, to sprout or to remain still.
Be still in this moment, Love, for life can be as complicated as you make it. 

Even though you sometimes overthink, know that everything shall pass. Someday you won’t remember what bothered you in the yesters. 

And tomorrow’s worries have never made your day any brighter.
How about you focus on the goals on your checklist?

There’s lots to do, lots to achieve, and such exciting places to be.
It’s not a storm anymore , beloved. 

It’s life. And dont make it a battlefield 

until your sole focus is victory. 

Live life in the now, the present, however tough that may seem.
You don’t have to feel obliged to be good and go out of your way, when you know very well, you still have to learn to say ‘No’, try to figure out how to deal with the negativity that follows your refusals. 

Also note those who turn bitter when you say no , and you know you aren’t wrong to do so, then do not fall prey to fake emotional torments, but stand by yourself, you deserve to make your own decisions, and ought to let go of people who stick by you for want of something that degrades you and your self esteem. If they stick to you regardless, there’s no ulterior motive there, be not afraid to vibe.
Sometimes it’s how you treat yourself that matters more than how anyone around will treat you.
Self love my dear soul, self love will help redeem the scars of the many “I am not enoughs” your mind is filled with.
For now, as you still embark on a journey to inspire, 

to create something with your fire and to grab those goals you’ve always dreamt of, let’s ensure your soul never ever tires.
Your’s always,

Leandra.

Dear Me

Dear Me ,

Be of small words, but bigger goals.

Be humble of spirit, so at the top you shall stand mighty and bold.

Be Kind, so you spread your warmth wherever you go,

Be generous whilst giving, even if only a smile, let it reach out to those love hungry souls.

Be grateful, now and always, so at all times you remember you have more than enough.

Be resilient, it is the power to conquer your fears.

Because when you hear hurtful words,

you know the pain they cause ,

and when you see a broken spirit,

you can also see yours and so you know the time it takes to not feel distraught.

When you are treated unkindly,

you know the world out there is dangerously cold, lacking empathy.

Because you know the disappointment of not receiving smiles in a day,

One less, creates a disturbing void.

jy

Because you know that when the heart loves freely it holds nothing back,

so not receiving enough love makes you wonder , “what it is that you lack? ”

Because if you never pause, be glad and feel thankful,

you will still be the human clinging to unhealthy remorse.

If you let your desires and greed overpower you,

who will for you intercede?

Remember:

Life is not the world or what the world gives,

but rather it is you and what your soul reaps. 

Much love,

L E A N D R A .

 

 

Flawed, broken and beautiful.

Something about this is beautiful and relatable.

Everyone is beautiful.

Everyone is flawed.

And Everyone is broken.

Some will never accept,

Some will.

Everyone feels the power of healing in time, 

and peace that nature offers.

Everyone matures after trials and tribulations,

and Everyone changes.

Some turn bitter ,

Some turn sweeter.

Some grow numb,

Some dare to defeat life.

But life is not a gamble to win.

It is what we are , where we stand and where we go.

As we take bits of what’s offered and leave behind bits that burden us,

We renew ourselves unknowingly at every phase, every turn and every twist.

Living bitter makes you thirsty for happiness,

But happiness is a state of mind.

It is only achieved when your heart and mind are in oneness, in peace, in your inner calm.

You can be happy if you choose 

to not be bitter, but forgiving, 

to be patient and loving,

be kind, but cautious,

be good and brave,

be mature enough to live ,

knowing , understanding and believing in your self worth.

Not what others believe and evaluate.

But what you do.

Your belief of you , sets you apart.

Make that belief strong, withstanding and overpowering your pessimistic notions,

So strong that you are your own shield and sword.

Such a belief that sets you free.

#15 Random thought of the day 

​This world is too brutal to be too good. 

Do good for your people. People you know. 

No one is judging you. Even if they do, it’s only fitting to not give a damn.

Because there are a heap of heartless people out there wanting to take advantage of the vulnerable, of those who wish to do good by going out of their way. 

I am not anti-humanitarian.

All I’m saying is, be wise enough to know where good needs to be done. 

Enhance and nuture your goodness, without being taken advantage of.

Do not be too much of a novice in your own goodness, to not see the monsters lurking around waiting to pounce on you.

There is a limit to everything. Know the boundaries. Spread your goodness and good vibes, but dont make it toxic.

It’s simple if you know when to say “NO” and stop. 

#14 Random thought of the day 

​Obligations often lead to extended formalities. If you want to get rid of fake relationships with snakes,  someone got to cut lose. Break off the vicious cycle, before complaining of overbearing toxicity. 

Either you do that, or you deal with another heap of crap.
