Begins with the Decision
Begins with the Decision
I think this is something we tend to forget. We see successful people around us and wonder if there is a spark inside them than we don't have. Their ideas and achievements seem to matter and we think, "Could I ever achieve that?" The question of achievement isn't as complicated as we think it is. Anything and everything we accomplish, big or small, public or personal begins with the decision to try. We can create the most elaborate and genius of plans and layouts and have millions of groundbreaking ideas, but if we do not try to do something about them, it will have been for nothing. We don't have to reach for the highest of skies (at least, not at first!), rather build our way slowly introducing additional elements along the way.
Above are five skincare products that I really love. I have very sensitive skin that reacts to most products, so finding ones that worked well is always exciting.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser: I use this cleanser every night to wash my face. It's extremely gentle which is great because many cleansers are too harsh for my skin, but it leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for Dry, Sensitive Skin: Cetaphil has been my go-to moisturizer for over ten years now! It's the perfect, no-nonsense cream that does what it is supposed to do. The no fragrance factor is also a big plus, no irritants!
St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub: This scrub is great but I personally try to limit how often I use it as my sensitive skin cannot handle too much exfoliating. So, I use it one or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and brighten my complexion.
Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (in Dry/Combination Skin): This facial soap is an awesome product! I'm always unsure of facial soaps, since most of them are too harsh on the skin. This one though, is very mild and a good choice when washing your face in the morning and at night. I personally use it in the morning, especially if I've wore a decent amount of makeup the night before. This way, I remove any excess makeup and start the day with fresh, clean skin!
Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips: Unfortunately, stubborn blackheads are an issue for me. I've tried numerous ways and products to try and remove them, but they haven't worked very well. So, I finally got a pack of these strips and so far so good. You definitely need to use them a few times though, to get the best results.
Feel passionate and alive as often as possible. Laugh, love, and live every day as best you can. It’s the little moments that make life worth it.
Go with your gut. Your intuition speaks louder than anyone’s words.
Be yourself. Make NO apologies for who you are, or what you feel. There is no one on this earth who is quite like you, and diminishing yourself, and who you truly are, would be doing the world a great disservice.
Change is inescapable, and usually happens for reasons that will become clear to you over time. Learn to accept it, for better or for worse. Never a dull moment.
Actions speak louder than words.
Here are a few "quotes" that I think serve as great advice for anyone, at any stage in their life.
So, there's really not much to tell. I'm a person of many interests, and talking to others about theirs.
So, I guess that's it for now!
