Innocence is a twisted concept. People mistake it by believing, only children and adults who fail to understand double meaning jokes are innocent. But that's not entirely true. Innocence comes from being genuine. People who speak their hearts out without any filter, those who always say the truth without having to get drunk and/or angry are innocent too. People who believe that the world is a pretty place to stay in and no one is going to hurt anyone, genuinely believe in the goodness of people. When you hear someone quote "Never let the child inside you die", they are trying to say, "don't let your emotions dry up in this practical world."
And yet questions arise time and again, "is no one innocent nowadays?" "Do people just try to be innocent to deceive others?" "Do all kids lose innocence as they grow up?" I think everyone has a child like bliss in them. A sparkle in their eyes, genuine smile and a warmth that they bring with their presence is what matters the most.
People who "act" like grown ups are just trying to hide their true nature, so as to no one can take advantage of them. Just another defence mechanism, I guess.
Because we overestimate adulthood and underestimate genuineness. Those who open out their heart to the world are most likely to get hurt, but they have the courage to be vulnerable & nothing to hide. With technology taking over the world and everyone hiding their real faces behind selfies and video cams, we need more people who are vulnerable, genuine and definitely innocent. And if you have someone in your life with these traits, tag them in this post, thank them and never ever let them go.

Re-posting my sister's words today as my #quoteoftheday 😍 #quotestoliveby ❤️
They really hit home with me as I'm constantly re-defining and re-inforcing my WHY 🙌🏽 | MOTIVATION |
Does NOT exist. At least not long term. The truth is: Our society has brainwashed us to think the successful people in the world are endlessly motivated, confident, and positive 100% of the time. That is an unrealistic expectation of anyone! Even the most successful individuals out there feel tired, doubt themselves, and get overwhelmed or stressed about their daunting “to-do” lists that never seem to end or get shorter.
Dedication, not motivation, is what sets these individuals apart, and drives them towards success. Dedication & consistency are what matter whenever motivation is lacking.
The difference between you (now) and the “You” that you dream of being is how you manage your own thoughts and reactions to what is happening around you. The successful people don’t allow excuses to stop them from what they need to do to get closer to their goals, so why do you? ... Don’t get me wrong, life is tough! And you probably have your reasons. But I want y’all to understand that those reasons do NOT JUSTIFY your actions, they only act as EXCUSES. So, I challenge you: - Do not let your excuses control the outcome of your life. Take your life and actions into your own control, and create a life that you want to live out everyday! - Do not use motivation to do what you want to do with your own life, no matter the obstacles. Become dedicated, create consistency, and stay focused on what you want!
- Make your goals meaningful and create a “why” that is stronger than all of your excuses!
Stay dedicated, not motivated 😉 jackie.crush 😘

I have learned that "Self care is so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel." An #inspirational #quotestoliveby by internationally-recognised speaker of self care and author Eleanor Brownn brownncares 💡
Life is a massive puzzle to unravel. We need time and energy; we try, we err, we study and maybe, we master. We might triumph and yet the learning continues because I believe the only time we stop doing so is when we kicked the bucket. But too often, we put others first. We spread ourselves out too thinly. We ran ourselves empty, physically and mentally drained. It's great being a candle, giving light to others but it's not fun burning ourselves out and "failing" to keep going. "Go where the love is. ©2011 Eleanor Brownn. Some people won't love you, no matter what you do. Some people won't STOP loving you, no matter what you do." 💡
"Self care is any action you purposely take to improve your physical, emotional or spiritual well being. Too often, we do not make time for sufficient self care because we’re too busy taking care of others. Life’s demands at home, in our community and at work can take our lives out of balance. Self care can be getting more rest, eating healthier food, spending more time in thoughtful reflection, being kinder to yourself, smiling more, playing, or engaging in any activity that renews you. By making time for self care, you prepare yourself to be your best so you can share your gifts with the world. You cannot serve from an empty vessel. © 2017 Eleanor Brownn eleanorbrownn.com"

🔅MONDAYS MOTIVATION & REMINDER: LONG POST !!!! 💁🏻♀️ stop seeking validation from others, stop allowing anyone to make you feel like your not good enough, smart enough, fit enough, popular enough etc. Stop allowing social media to make you think your body type is not worthy. Stop allowing people to have this affect on you, when it’s YOUR LIFE no one elses. I know we all want to feel good and be told we are pretty, handsome etc, we want the likes and the praise, but that means NOTHING If you don’t believe in yourself self worth or you own abilities. Likes don’t mean anything, peoples assumptions of you don’t mean anything, seeking approval from others either, YOU determine your own self worth, you are in control, don’t allow anyone to make you think you are what they think you are. Don’t allow them to tell you what to post what to say what to wear what to do; be bold be beautiful, yes be cautious as anyone should in this world, but DONT be told who you are, you tell us. YOU ARE WORTHY BUT YOU HAVE TO ACT LIKE IT AND BELIEVE IT. ❣️ .
—- I received a lot of heat in the last week, over the simplest post, yet people don’t take the time to Read your captions and see what your all about. I let it affect me because I never want anyone to think this page is to expose myself or use it in a malicious way or attention seeking way. It’s clear what I do here and I appreciate those who see that. BUT I’ve come to the conclusion that you can’t please everyone, and you can’t live for others. I know me and I know my heart & the mindset I have, I do no harm to others & I don’t need to explain myself anymore. So if you rock with me great if not, please remove yourself and I wish you well. .
