People Pleaser

I'm a people pleaser.  It's what I do.  I'm not sure, where I picked up this sometimes 'detrimental' habit.  Nonetheless, it's a title I've owned for quite sometime.  I can honestly say that my little sister is the same way and at times, it comes back to bite both of us in the @ss.

If you've followed BellaBud on Instagram and/or Facebook for even as little as a week, you already know that I'm a "quote queen".  I am always in search of a good quote.  Well, yesterday, I came across this gem from one of my very favorite people on the planet, Joel Osteen.  The man is AMAZING and so extremely inspirational.
I've read this quote over and over again and it really resonated with me.  I put so much pressure on myself to try and make other people happy that sometimes so many times I end up unhappy myself. :( It really makes no sense when you sit and think about it.  I am coming to realize that "people are only as happy as they make up their minds to be."  That being said, I'd like to say I'm going to stop trying to keep everyone happy and/or fixed and concentrate a little more on making me happy.

Hmmmmm, that's a big change from my norm and it all sounds good in theory, but I know how I am and that is going to be very hard for me to do.  Wish me luck.

Be happy,
