It’s been a Monday, guys. And I’m having a hard time pulling myself out of it. Some days I can repel the negativity and some days it just gets into my skin like a little fucking mosquito coming for blood. I’ve been getting some shade on here and on social media the past few days and I’m simply exhausted by it. I try to share helpful information with different brands or food or outfits or workouts or meals, all in hopes that those things I love help others, as well. I don’t claim to be a know-it-all or a highly trained professional or a doctor, I’m just a person who loves to find out more about my health and share those experiences with others. And I share everything for free. I share recipes for free, workouts for free, different types of posts for free…and this is all in hopes of getting paid later on. I work for free knowing that I won’t always get paid for my time, it won’t always resonate with others, and I will upset people along the way with my own opinions. I never ask anything of others, I just simply want to share for people who read or watch.

But some people don’t see things like that. And sadly, there is nothing I can do about it. All I can do is let the hatred from others wash off my back and move forward. Especially right now, when tensions are high during the lead up to the election. People are angry, flat out angry. And if something you do doesn’t align exactly with what they think in that moment, you are the enemy and they will make it known. Now more than ever.

But let’s remember one thing – these types of situations arise throughout our lives over and over. You parent differently – you are the enemy. You eat differently than your family members – you are the enemy. You don’t go out and party with your friends anymore – you are the enemy. And yes, I’m being quite extreme right now because I’m feeling heated and attacked so I’m projecting a bit, but my point is that everyone will have times in their lives where they feel like the world is against them when they are simply trying their best. Those attacks will make you question your own path and make you want to fade away, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

We are all so unique and so individual that we will often question other people’s paths or beliefs or ideas that aren’t similar to ours, but that doesn’t mean they are wrong, they are simply different. And if you feel like your group of friends or family or peer group is questioning your goals and the path that you have put in place for yourself, remember that they may be going through something that hinders their admiration for your path in life. For example, if you have a family member that questions your new choice in lifestyle, such as eating healthy/clean foods, it probably is coming from a place of simply not understanding or a place of insecurity. And because of that, they may lash out at you. But that doesn’t mean you’re not on the right path to improving your life. You were put on this earth to make your life your own. It doesn’t have to match anyone else’s, it doesn’t have to look how other people think it should, it can just be your own.

Life is all about choices and you can choose to leave the rest of the world behind and move forward with your own. This doesn’t mean you have to go all Chris McCandless on everyone and leave for good, but you can choose to find your own happiness, no matter what others say. The world is bound to get you down over and over and over again, but if you create your own happiness within your own life, it will only drag you down for a short amount of time. So FUCK OFF, World! I got shit to do! Happy Monday, you beautiful soul!
