From Me To You

To whoever is reading this, Hi! My name is Alex & I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself. I'm terribly honest, caring, impatient, passionate, & in love with love. I think it's better to always say something, than to wonder, "What if?" I love glitter & I go to Taco Bell on an extremely regular basis. My favorite number is seven. I write about every single aspect of my life, bad or good. Music has gotten me through the hardest times in my life, from anything to boys to school to bad friendships to just finding out who I am & who I'm supposed to be. I love surprises, especially if they involve chocolate. I think pizza & a good hug can solve anything. I play the piano & the ukulele. My favorite color is purple (obviously!) & I love to dream. Most importantly, I write & sing songs that I hope can make a difference in the lives of a lot of people. Lately, I've noticed that oftentimes, the things that make us unique & just a little bit quirky are the things that we seem to dislike the most about ourselves. Regardless of who we are or where we come from, it seems like everyone has something they'd like to change about themselves. To this, I say: forget all of it. Go & forget every single negative thing you've ever thought about yourself because honestly, those weird quirks & things that you don't like are probably the coolest things about you. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. For a very long time, I was not happy with who I was. I wanted to change a lot about myself because I thought that it would make me happier. & I tried to. I really did. But eventually, I realized that we're all made exactly how we are for a specific purpose. Each & every one of us is put on this planet Earth for a reason & I truly think that to live a happy life, we need to be happy with who we are, flaws and all. As Kacey Musgraves said it best, "We only get so many trips 'round the sun," & you can't enjoy the sun if you're always worried about the clouds in the sky. To wrap things up, just know that from me to you, I think you're perfect just the way you are, (insert Bruno Mars song here!) & you were made exactly how you were supposed to be. Go out, be you, & never, EVER lose your sparkle. It makes you who you are & let me tell you: that person is pretty darn fantastic ♡ XOXO,
