Be A Nice Human

There is so much truth in those four words.

I’m writing this post because I can’t stop thinking about an incident that happened to me earlier this month. I won’t get into details about it because it’s not worth getting worked up about it anymore because believe me I WAS RILED UP. Long story short, for those of you who know me, I try not to let the little things bother me too much (because quite frankly it’s not worth it) but for some reason this person just made me feel like a low-life-good-for-nothing-girl at that moment, it felt like I didn’t even matter or exist in this person’s eyes! I could’ve overreacted and been ugly towards this person but I didn’t. I kept my cool and do you know what I did instead? I killed this person with kindness. Did it work? I’m not sure but it got the wheels turning in my head about how important it is to be nice to everyone around you because you never know what that person is going through. You don’t know what battles and what demons that person is facing at the moment. It challenged me to view life a little differently after experiencing that unpleasant encounter with that unlovely person. Don’t dehumanize others just to get your way. Don’t be ugly towards others. BE NICE. It doesn’t cost a thing and the world would be a better place if you remember to be kind. Kindness goes a long way! The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to leave behind an example to the next generation. When I die, I want people to remember me as: “Sharon Rose, the girl who was genuinely nice and truly cared for people.” That is the kind of legacy I want to leave behind when I’m gone.


P.S. Enjoy the graphic print I created and remember to be a nice human. : )








A Fresh Start

Hello, my name is Sharon Rose (or SRoze as most people know me) and I am returning to the blogging world that I left behind 4 years ago. A lot has changed in 4 years. After so many failed dates and disappointments, I decided to focus on bettering myself. I continued to thrive in my career. I continued to push myself to get out of my comfort zone. I met new people. I wasn’t looking for love. I didn’t have time for love. I was determined to make the most out of my 20’s and I bought my first home a few months before I turned 30. I welcomed a new decade with hesitant arms (30 just sounded unreal to me not to mention O-L-D). As friends continued to get engaged and start their own families, here I was learning how to be a homeowner. I was learning how to deal with a leaky toilet at 3AM with water gushing everywhere. I was learning how to not kill house plants that were given to me by my sweet mother (although I must say I went through 3 plants before my green thumb appeared). The key is to NOT OVER WATER THEM because they will drown. Anyway, as soon as I was getting the hang of single life (or so I thought), I met him. The person who would rock my world for the better. The person who I chose to open up my heart to and let those walls I had built for so long come down… the person who makes me feel like a million bucks and keeps me smiling big… but I’m saving that for another blog post. ; ) So here’s to a fresh start. A new place where I can escape and be myself. A place for you to get to know me – the good, the bad, the happy, the sad.

“so I close my eyes to old ends and open my heart to new beginnings.”
