Note to Self...

I’m pretty sure you’ve noticed that I have been inconsistant with my Journal lately… Honestly I have not only being busy with Projects but I have being struggling to find my way out of a huge mess i created for myself. I dealt with feeling frustrated, emotionally drained, mad at myself, all while trying to convince myself that it wasn’t that bad…

Reality? It was reallg bad.

I finally accepted my mistakes and forgave myself and that is the best decision I have made in the last 5years. "Forgiving myself."

I wrote a note to myself to constantly remind me of what matters and what should be done. I hope someone reads this and learn too.

NOTE TO SELF....

Dear Raquel Lily Jacobs, its a new month and I decided to write you a note.

If you say you’re going to do something,
DO IT!
If you say you’re going to feelings somewhere,
BE THERE!
If you say you feel something, MEAN IT!
If you can’t, won’t, and don’t,
then DON’T LIE.

It’s always better to tell people the truth up front. Don’t play games with people’s heads and hearts. Don’t tell half truths and expect people to trust you when the full truth comes out; half truths are no better than lies.

My dear Raquel, remember, love and friendship don’t hurt. Lying, cheating and messing with people’s feelings and emotions hurts. Never mess with someone’s feelings just because you’re unsure of yours. Always be open and honest. Happy New Month darling.

Your truly,
Raquel....
