How to live a beautiful life:
Stop living vicariously through others.

Do you want to know a secret?
The only reason your life doesn’t look or feel like a moment worth capturing on film is because you haven’t done anything to CREATE that.
A beautiful life requires work & effort!
It means NOT staying in your pyjamas in front of the computer all weekend.
It means getting in the shower, picking an outfit, choosing an activity & actually putting yourself out there.
It means calling your friends to invite them out.
It means staying in touch with your friends & making the effort so that you actually HAVE friends to do things with!
It means striking up conversation with people who may look weird or be different to you.
It means doing things you’re not totally sure of, heart pounding, & heebie-jeebies creeping up the back of your skull.
I know that sometimes, staying in & watching a movie is more tempting. But I also know that when we finally extricate ourselves from our nests, we feel so much better about ourselves, & life in general!
There are no excuses. Even the smallest town can be a wonder; it’s all about perspective.
Don’t live your life vicariously through the internet. Those anonymous girls you worship? They could just as easily be you. Wouldn’t you prefer to be the person in the photo, instead of the person looking at it?
Do something wonderful this week. Surprise the people around you. Live dangerously. Take a risk. Amaze yourself. galadarling
