Think About It…

I am going to share some quotes, and then put my thoughts behind them. Please feel free to share your thoughts on them in the comments!

If the world was blind, how many people would you impress?

I had a professor share this statement with my class. It has been on my mind ever since. I actually have it written on a sticky note on my desk. The world praises “beauty”, but is that all that matters? If the world is blind, it can’t see the “beauty” we all praise. People will spend millions of dollars on beauty, what if they spent that on bettering the world? Beauty changes, daily. What people view as beautiful changes so much, it should scare you, I know it scares me. I definitely get sucked into the beauty industry, today I even bought a new makeup brush. It is hard to not get sucked into beauty, but think about this. Beauty is so much more than what is on the outside. I personally believe beauty starts on the inside. Beauty is so much more than a pretty face, nice clothes, well done hair. The term beauty, even talking about inward beauty, is so opinionated. So, if the world was blind, how many people would you impress?

“If it scares you, it’s a sign you need to do it.”

“Doubt kills dreams more than failure every will.” -Suzy Kassem

Moving to college scared me, the cry as night kind of scared. I knew this was a way of knowing this was the right thing for me. I knew if I didn’t put myself out there, I would never succeed the way I dreamed. It’s terrifying, but one day I know I can look back on this and be proud of myself. It will also make any future moves easier. Many people let their fears take over, don’t. If you have dreamed it, do it. No matter how scary it is. Stop doubting yourself, you can do it. After all, I shared 10 things I knew about you in a different blog. What is something that scare you that you did or didn’t do?

“Dead people receive more flowers than living one because regret is stronger than gratitude.” -Anna Frank

Let that sink in for a second. Whenever someone dies, the normal response is to send money or flowers, but why? When someone dies people tend to regret something they did, said, or even something they didn’t say or do to or for that person. Try to live your life with as little regret as you can, stop feeling bad for everything you do. Don’t feel bad when you have to move on in life or have to do something different. When you are filled with gratitude, reward it. It doesn’t need to be flowers, a simple thank you note is enough. We hang on to the bad things, why can’t we hang on to the times someone made us feel special rather than the times they hurt us?

  1. I know for you all the changes have been hard. I can really relate, Making the decision to not only move on with my life but also move AWAY from the life I had always known.Leaving everyone and everything I knew was incredibly hard. It’s something I still think back on, but moving on with my own life although scary was one of my best moves ever. I still miss the people I saw on a regular bases but they are gone I just have to work a little harder at seeing them.
    We all get cought up with the outer beauty at some point in our lives. I do the makeup and hair and outer things for myself …it makes me feel better! Our inner beauty is more important to other people and would be so much more important to a blind person. So you really need to a beautiful person on the inside. Most people have the ability to be a very awesome person on the inside they just have to do it!
    You are wise beyond your age Alyssa Ebersole!
