If there is anything you don’t want people to know about you, don’t tell anyone. We give people too much responsibility when we entrust them with our business. Sometimes they repeat the information mindlessly; other times they use our story to make a point; at worst times they use it against you. We should only tell our problems to people who can help. 80% of the people we talk to can’t help us; the other 20% really don’t care. We are quick to accuse our friends of betraying us, but do we consider how we betray ourselves? We lie to ourselves and then allow ourselves to believe it will not come back. It does, through the mouth and actions of someone else. In those special times when you must talk about your private affairs, ask the other person if they are willing to keep your confidence. If they repeat it, then the responsibility is theirs – not for telling your business, but for not keeping their word. I will only tell you what I want everybody to know.
To all of the people who know their worth and share it daily, who thinks they’re alone, who thinks no one cares, who dream louder than the world, who pray every night for happiness, who know the system is flawed but push anyway, who give more than what gets returned, who stand in integrity and quality even if they go unappreciated, who thinks no one loves them. You ARE loved. It starts from within.✨
Dear 2017, Hi. This is hard for me to say this, but time is running out. I know we’ve been together since January 1st, but I need to breakup with you. It’s not you, it’s me. I’m walking into 2018 with a clear heart and mind. If you owe me, don’t worry about it – you’re welcome. If you wronged me, it’s all good – lesson learned. If you’re angry with me, you’ve won, congratulations! If we aren’t speaking, its cool..I wish you well. If you feel I wronged you, I apologize. If you’re waiting on me to fail, don’t hold your breath…you have a long wait! I’ve already overcome more than you can imagine (some of you know what I am referring to). Life is too short for all the pent up anger, holding grudges and extra pain. My inner peace is the most important thing to me now. As I am getting closer to that victory, I’m also working on bettering myself. Please don’t take my isolation personally. It’s the only way I can let go and let God to do His work. I’ve lost focus & I need to regain it. You all should do the same. Focus on making your life better for you & your family and watch how doors open. ✨ Here’s to 2018! Full of Love, Health & Happiness! Love, Chanel 💋
