there are so many beautiful things in this world that we so often miss for our lives become too busy, family becomes too distant, jobs become too consuming...its important to stop and reflect on whats important in this life.
I'm the first to admit, I love money and shopping, and I love the idea of being known as a public figure on the internet and people recognizing me in public, its all great but like any human being, it can get into my head that that's what lifes all about. and I had an epiphany tonight, so clearly, so loudly, it screamed in my ears and they started ringing like angels singing from God.
Trish life isn't about louis vuitton bags and driving bmws. its not about landing the next tv gig or having the biggest makeup collection. I have to thank my dad for taking me to dinner. he reminded me how short life is and how we need to be thankful for the basics we have, not everyone is as fortunate to have food to eat and a roof over their head.
I told my dad I was going through some rough times this past week, rocky relationships, hurt feelings and my dad said, "trish, none of that really matters in the grand scheme of life. are you a good person? are you living a life that makes God smile?" and the answer to all that was yes.
in my heart of hearts, I just truly want happiness for everyone. I know what being lonely and depressed and angry is like, I've been there, and I wish no one to feel these feelings. I want people to live their life for themselves. who cares what anyone says or does? does it really affect your life, your life's importance?
here's what matters to me in this life:
MY FAMILY. they are my rock, my support and I know they will be there for me no matter what, they've been with me through my lowest points, my sicknesses, and they never judge nor condemn. In our family, if something someone does isn't the way you'd do something, you just continue to love them anyway.
HEALTH. my health is not great. in fact today it was mocked. but no matter how much pain and suffering I go through fighting my battles, I still get on my knees every morning and thank God for giving me the strength to get through it, the finances to pay for it, and mostly the air in my lungs. Never forget to give thanks to God when he never forgets to wake you up for another day on this earth.
LOVE. we all need, want and deserve love. when we lay on our deathbeds, are we going to say, DAMN I wish had more views on that video? or DAMN I should've taken that job in Phoenix? no. we are going to remember all the moments in life we shared in love. the only memories I have from childhood and my adult life are those that were lived in love. love is pure. when you truly love, nothing matters. you'll never want to hurt the person you love or have loved, you'd only want amazing things for them. this is why I constantly tell YOU all, that I LOVE YOU, cause I ONLY want the best for you. even if you hate me and think I'm trashy, I still love you and want you to succeed. I don't judge you for your feelings nor do I judge you for judging :)
GOD. God gave his only son for us. God created our world. God brought you into this world. you are not here by mistake, you are here because He wanted you here, he has a great plan for you and never forget that. we are all God's children so with anyone you encounter in life remember that, we are all brothers and sisters in Christ and we all deserve the respect and love you'd give to our Father. the whole purpose of this life on Earth is to get to eternal happiness with God our Father, so live this life right and lets all get to heaven together.
these are the things that matter in life to me. I will publish and print this and keep it by my bed to remind me why I am waking up and why I had a blessed day before sleeping.
thank you all for reading and respecting each other! I pray for you all the time to find happiness, let go of anger, and live the best life God intended for you to have.
