in my last post i told you all i was taking my blog in a different direction. that i had felt inspired to do something a little different here. in the past, i used this thing as a refuge, a place of escape.... but mostly for me. while i wanted to help the world sparkle a little bit more, i don't think it was making a huge difference in the life of someone else. 

i want to change that. glitter girl will now be a place of refuge for all to come. anyone, from the manic depressive to someone just having a bad day, i want this place to be a place of safety. in our world today we are being bombarded with sadness, depression, anxiety, and thoughts of failure. we are never measuring up. thoughts and attempts at suicide are lurking at every corner. 

my goal is to help. i want this place to be safe. to be somewhere where people can come and feel hopeful again. i want people to be able to express their thoughts and feel safe. i want to make people smile, laugh, and feel joyful. i may not have my own life completely put together, and i may not always have the answers, but i can promise that here you will feel love and acceptance and peace. 

there are so many reasons why each and every one of us should shine. all we need to do is listen to that little voice within us to know who we are, and what we are worth. no one is exempt to that. here, glitter girl will help you see and recognize why life is so beautiful and so worth living. 

never give up. 

I want you to remember who you are, despite the bad things that are happening to you. Because those bad things aren’t you. They are just things that happen to you. You need to accept that who you are and the things that happen to you, are not one and the same.”  

                                                                                    -shine on, glitter girl.
