Your Happiest When...

you smile at someone new...
you laugh at a funny joke...
you make a new friend...
you are nice to strangers...
you stand up for what you believe in...
you love everyone no matter what...
you do whats right, just because you want to...
you compliment new friends...
you make someone else's day better...
you are with happy people...
you do nice things...
you have cool hair and makeup...

I just thought i'd share that with ya. It's so dang true.
Today at school, i was in one of my classes and i was talking with a group of people, and one girl said, "I hate people who wear the same clothes all the time. I mean, seriously, add some variaty!"
First of all, it broke my heart. Second off, it pissed me off. So i said, "Some people don't have a choice, and sometimes it isn't their fault. So don't judge them."
She glared at me, and then the conversation moved to a new topic.
I felt good after that. Even though she is probably mad at me now...at least i stood up for what i believe in.

I love clothes, and most people do, but some people can't afford them, or don't want them, or even for someother reason, so we should never judge a person...especially on what they are on the outside. I just hope that people will learn to be kind, and realize that it isn't whats on the outside that counts, it's whats on the inside. I do judge; it's a human thing to do. But i've learned, that judging a person, doesn't define who they are, if defines who YOU are. So don't do it. It's hard sometimes, because we see someone, and we make an asumtion...but if we learn to look past the owtward appearance, you will meet some amazing people.

For example: There was this girl in one of my classes once upon a time, and she wore the same thing everyday, and her hair was always greasy. People didn't like to talk to her because she was shy and "different". When the semester ended, we got new classes and she was in one of my new ones. In the class on the first day, we had to tell the class our names, and one unique thing about us. This girl got up and said, "My name is (this isn't really her name) jill, and i have 23 siblings." (Everything started to make sense!) And then she sat down. Everyone stared. She turned red, and i felt bad, so i stood up and said, "Hey, me too! Except i have 10 instead!" That made the class loosen up, and i made a new friend with this girl.

If she wouldn't have said that, we probably wouldn't have become friends...so i'm glad that she got out of her comfort zone to share that. Also, this girl, is an awesome girl, and whats outside of her, no longer matters to me; because i know what's inside.
I hope everyone can be nicer to everybody, and i hope we can choose to respect everyone, NO MATTER WHAT!
