Trust the timing of your life...
For each of us, everything comes at the exact right moment. The problem for each of us is patience and faith. We want what we want, and we want it now! Understanding that everything comes at the right moment, the right people enter and exit your life for a reason. The right job is given to you. The right lover comes when you least expect it. All these things come at the right time whether you're ready or not...they will come, they will teach you a lesson and they will either stay or leave. Keep your energy positive, and know that whatever is in your path right now, is there for a reason.. good or bad, it's there at the right time. Don't over analyze, except it for what it is. Work towards your dreams and I promise you Smart Girl, your dreams will manifest at the right time in your life.
It's that time of year for pumpkin everything! Instead of carving your pumpkin try sprinkling a little glitter on top to give it a sparkle! Here's a step by step Do It Yourself how you can glitter your pumpkin this year!
Step 1: Start by getting some pumpkins! I suggest getting the small ones because they are easier to glitter and you can set them around your room as decoration once you're all done!
Step 2: You'll need glue for the glitter to stick! I got All Purpose glue from my local crafts store! Note: You may also want to pick up
modge podge to paint over your glitter when you're done so the glitter doesn't get everywhere!
Step 3: Pick out any glitter you like in any color! The front two glitters are fine smaller glitter and the back two are a bigger flecks of glitter! Whatever glitter catches your eye!
Step 4: Grab some paint brushes! These are going to be used to paint your glue onto your pumpkins!
Step 5: Paint an even layer of glue onto your pumpkin. Make sure the glue is smooth and even so when you sprinkle your glitter on, it's not chunky and bumpy!
Step 6: Now it's time to sprinkle your glitter on! Do this before the glue dries! And don't worry if you missed some spots, just paint on some glue on the empty spots and sprinkle the glitter on again!
The End! Here's what your glitter pumpkin should look like in the end! This is so much fun to do with your friends and looks super cute as decoration for your room during the holidays!
I hope you get a chance to glitter your pumpkin this year Smart Girl! If you do, take a picture and tag me in it! My instagram is @SmartGirlWorld

We hear it all the time "be positive" "don't think negative thoughts." Positive mind, positive vibes, positive life!
Life is beautiful at whatever angle you look at it. The lessons we learn. The people we meet. The moments we have, all shape our lives and create the memories that make us each different. However you make your mark on this world, make it with love and passion, for those are the two things that mean the most. The love for others and the love for yourself. Anything you want, can be created through love, hard work & your passion. Life is beautiful at any direction, it’s your choice on how you view it.
Life may not go as planned sometimes, but it definitely goes how it’s supposed to. There are lessons in every situation. You may desire one thing, and in return you may not get exactly that. Whatever the outcome is, it’s how it’s supposed to be at that time. And sometimes not getting what you want is a blessing. You may find that what you originally wanted isn’t even what you desire anymore, and what you got instead is better than what you wish to have in the first place.
Things may not always come easy too. Others may get exactly what you want a lot easier, but you could be learning a very important lesson in the process of working a little harder to get what you desire. Once you achieve it, you will understand that very lesson.
Don’t plan for it to be perfect, it’s called life for a reason. Expect the happiness in the lessons because either way, you will grow and you’ll be exactly where you’re supposed to be!
'Keep working through the process. Even when doubt sets in within yourself or the goal, keep persistent because in the end, it'll be awesome!"
It happens to all of us... we get a great idea, we know it's possible and we are so motivated to do it! We believe in ourself so much that anything seems possible, the idea of failing isn't even in existence. We make a plan, write it down, decide what to do and when it's going to get done. We have the world in the palm of our hands and nothing is going to get in the way.
Until the first set back. We realize "hey, this is going to take more work than I thought.." We start to doubt our plans, our ideas and that final goal. But we push a little because we still think it can be done!
Then we realize maybe it can't be done... maybe we should just give up "I can't do this I don't have enough money" "I can't do this I won't have the time" We start to place all this doubt on ourselves. Fear sinks in and we start to believe in giving up...
But I want you to push over that negative hump. It's a mountain you have to climb, and once you're at the top, you'll realize why you had that creative idea in the first place.
Those who give up won't see the beauty in their dreams, but those who push through the fear and doubt, will live their happiness.
If it doesn't make you happy it's a waste of time.
Too often us girls continue to do things that don't even fill our souls. We spend far too much time working jobs that don't make us excited, we go out when we'd rather stay in, or we dress how other's think we should. We continue a routine because we think it's all we have to live for. Time to wake up and smell the coffee #SmartGirl you own your life. You choose to do the things that don't make you happy.. Instead, make the right turn instead of the left and venture out! You might discover something about yourself that you never knew.
If you aren't happy it's time for change. You have all the power. Put your heels on, stomp away, and create something new thats true to you!
Accepting change at times can be uncomfortable and not very fun... You're use to the way things have been and thinking about them ending or changing in any way, could be terrifying! Changes in life happen all the time, and from these changes we end up growing. When you learn that change isn't really all that bad... you'll end up finding out that sometimes things do need to change, and it ends up being a good thing in the end. Accept the change, you never know what's next in life!
So you want to change your life. Maybe start something new. Feeling a little lost and not sure what you're going to do with your life?
You may see your friends getting their stuff together. Graduating from school, maybe getting new jobs, but you aren't really sure what you want to do...
Let's get back on track!
What do you love to do? What are you interested in doing? What could you see yourself doing for the next couple of years that would make you happy? What changes can you make to your life to get you on the right track?
No sure?... Get a journal and write some ideas down!
Are you into art? Do you like to dance, sing, write, or play a sport? Want to be a teacher or start your own blog?
It's important to get focused and figure out what you want to do with your life. It's okay to feel a little lost at times, but once you figure out what you want to do.. it will excite you and you will have passion in achieving your dream.
Let's get on track together! Let's figure out step by step what it is that you want to do. Maybe just organize your life a little bit, maybe that will get you back on track!
There's always a start to success, let right now be your start! The first step in getting ahead is getting started on your dreams.
You're going to face a lot of people who tell you "you can't do it." They will give you every reason why they believe what you want, isn't worth working for. You may even want to believe them.. But if you have a passion for something, who are they to tell you "you can't do it"
Sometimes we want so badly for people to understand why we're so interested in something.. It makes you upset that they don't see things your way. "I can do this.. Why doesn't anyone support me with this"
The most important lesson you'll learn, is not everyone is going to understand your passion. Not everyone is going to believe in you and your dream...but if you believe in yourself, and you work hard to achieve your personal success, you'll be able to prove them wrong in the end. Sure, it won't come easy, you may even think "maybe they are right, maybe I can't do it." But I promise if you push hard enough, study whatever you need to study and don't listen to the "you can't do it" blabber.. You'll prove them all wrong one day, and all that work you put into it will be worth it
