Big thanks to Cents of Style for launching their beautiful Be Series and for partnering with me on today’s post. All opinions expressed within this post are 100% my own.
I’ve been a mess here lately.
You know that little section on Facebook that tells you all of the trending news for the day (that’s more often filled with horrible things than positive things?) I’ve been staring at it. I can’t leave it alone. I refresh my browser far too much, just to see if something changes in the world that will leave my heart and my mind caught up in a whirlwind of emotions. I’ve been watching the bad in the world play it’s evil hand, and I’ve let it shape my outlook on how I’m going to play my own hand. This world has been sending me messages telling me to be certain things that I don’t want to be – be worried, be unsure, be scared, be hopeless, etc.
Enough is enough. Falling into the trap of being what the bad in this world wants me to be would be an unfortunate sacrifice of all of the beautiful and good things that can and will come from me. My heart was designed with a greater purpose in mind, and now more than ever I’ve felt a calling to be a light that shines through darkness and to help break the chains of sadness that we carry and the apathy that this world expects of us.
I no longer subscribe to a life waiting on bad things to happen. Now, I choose to be the good that this world so desperately needs.
I’m not saying that my efforts to be the good in the world are going to make bad things stop happening. I simply cannot bear that kind of weight on my own (and luckily, I don’t have to.) However, I know for sure that acts of service, compassion, listening, teaching, loving, and all other examples of a loving heart can change a life somewhere. And the beautiful thing about investing good works into the world is that this behavior can spread like wildfire and ignite a spark in others to be a positive light for others to see.
With spring in full bloom, I’ve been feeling particularly inspired to shed my old weights of worry and fear and to let love, happiness and goodness bloom within me for all to see. That’s why I’ve fallen head over heels in love with the Be Series Graphic T-Shirts from Cents of Style.
This collection of fun t-shirts inspires and reminds me to remain positive and motivated to be myself and to always be the good. This line of shirts has so many positive, encouraging and inspiring messages to remind us all to be our unique selves, and by doing so we can together change this world for the better.

Who is the world telling you to be, and how do you hope to break those barriers and let your true self shine in this world? Be who you want to be, and be just that. You are strong enough, capable enough, and worthy. You are enough, friends. Always remember that.
