Embrace Yourself Today and Everyday

Embrace. What does that word mean to you?

At the beginning of 2019, I decided my “word of the year” would be “embrace”. Honestly, this is my first time picking out a “word of the year”, but I went for it.

I chose embrace because there are so many ways to perceive it.

Embrace your past.

Embrace your insecurities.

Embrace your personality.

Embrace your beauty.

The list could go on and on….

Instead of letting your past affect your future, let it go! What’s in the past, is in the past. Don’t look back!

I know…. it’s easy to compare yourself to the “perfect girl/guy” on Instagram who has the “perfect life”. Im begging you, please do NOT compare yourself to the girls and guys on Instagram, or any other social medias!! Their life isn’t perfect, even though it may look like it on screen. BE YOU! Once you have accepted your flaws, nobody can use them against you. Embrace who you truly are ✰

Opinions aren’t facts, so stop worrying about what others think of you. There will ALWAYS be someone prettier, someone smarter, etc. BUT…. there will never be anyone exactly like you!

Love yourself, embrace your flaws, and never let the opinions of others affect your self confidence. You are enough! -Bethany Mota

Advice for College Freshman

Going into college, I thought I knew what to expect…. I was wrong. Here’s some tips for your first year of college!

1.) Caffeine, specifically coffee, will be your best friend.

2.) Get your books off of Amazon, save yourself some money!

3.) Use a planner. It helps. A lot. Color-coding is also a great idea!

4.) Failing is NOT the end of the world. It is better to try & fail, than to not try at all!

5.) Go to class everyday, whether attendance is mandatory or not. You will save yourself a lot of time not having to make-up the information.

6.) Use 2 notebooks, one to take notes in class and the other for copying the notes later on. Re-writing information is a great way to learn the material!

7.) If you have time for a quick nap, it’s ALWAYS a good idea to take it.

8.) It is okay to not know what you want to Major in yet.

9.) Be yourself!

10.) Always have cereal and milk on hand.

11.) Make a daily routine. It’s much easier to get things done when you have a routine set in place.

12.) Have fun!

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. -Winston Churchill

I’ve been in a relationship with this guy for almost FOUR YEARS! It’s crazy how fast time flies when you’re having fun, right?! We have been dating since my junior year and his senior year of high school.

We also have a dog together, her name is Natty! She is a black lab mix, & she was found on the side of the road at 6 weeks old ☹️ sad, right? Anyways, we were lucky that his boss found them and offered us one. We just couldn’t say no to that goofy face! She is now 1!

Anyways, I hope to encourage and inspire you all. Thank you again for joining me on this super fun journey!
