Let your scars remind you

Tragedy should be used as a source of strength.
Someday when you least expect it life will blindside you with necessary chaos. And once the chaos has ended, you won’t remember exactly how you made it through, or where you found the strength you needed to carry on. You won’t even be sure whether the chaos has completely ended. But there is one thing you can be sure about.. When it does finally come to an end, you will be a much stronger person than who you were before it happened, which is precisely why it was necessary.
So let your scars remind you that you did indeed survive your deepest wounds.
This in itself is a major accomplishment. And let them continue to bring to mind the fact that the damage life has inflicted on you has, in many ways and places, left you stronger and more resilient.
I for one have to believe this or I would shatter and break, more so than I already am.
There has to be hope that my wounds will heal and I can once again feel some sort of peace.
Without that hope I don’t know how I even got this far.
Hope is my strength, my saviour, my sanity.
Without it, I know I wouldn’t be here.

Embrace

Be deaf when people tell you that you can’t fulfill your dreams. The only place where your goals and dreams are impossible is inside your head.
Once you’ve dreamed of it, you’re halfway there. So go ahead and follow through.
Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions louder than your words.

Follow your heart regardless of what others tell you to do.

At the end of the day it’s you who has to live with your decisions, not them. Everything changes, If nothing ever changed there would be no sunrise the next morning. Most of us are comfortable where we are even though the whole universe is constantly changing around us. Learning to accept this is vital to our happiness and general success.
And don’t forget, however good or bad a situation is now, it will change. That’s the one thing you can count on, embrace it.

I will conquer

As this week seems to be full of challenges, ones that I just can’t get my head around, ones that make me feel like I’m failing, ones that are making me dealt myself and my abilities, I really need to remind myself of this.

Your mistakes and failures should be your motivation, not your excuse. Instead, place them under your feet and use them as stepping-stones.
Mistakes teach you important lessons. Every time you make one, you’re one step closer to your goal.
The only mistake that can truly hurt you is choosing to do nothing simply because you’re too scared to make a mistake.
Failure is not falling down…failure is staying down when you have the choice to get back up.
Life didn’t come with instructions. Accept that mistakes will happen.
You are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here now with the power to shape your day and your tomorrow.

It’s that simple

imageIf you want something, you must endure the pain of working for it.
It’s that simple.
If you’re not where you want to be right now, take the time to visualize yourself in the place you want to be and take the first step in that direction. You may not be able to change your destination in a day, but you can change your direction right now.
Remember, strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you couldn’t.
No matter how much it hurts now, you have to hold your head up, grit your teeth, and keep going. In the end, consistent action speaks for itself. So focus diligently, work hard in silence, and let your success be your noise

Little voice

imageYou have everything you need within you to become the best possible version of yourself.
Believe that you can.
Believe that you’re capable of pushing harder and farther than you have before.
Believe that you’re young enough, old enough, smart enough and strong enough to achieve your goals.
Don’t let false beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself. And certainly don’t get sidetracked by other people who are not on track. Life is too short to wait. Every new day is another chance to change your life. Every great accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Trust that little voice inside your head that says,what if… and then go and do it.

Give yourself a fair chance. You would be surprised how often what if works. And no, you’re not obligated to win every time. You’re obligated to keep trying…to do the best you can do every day to improve upon what you learned yesterday.

Embrace

imageEmbrace all of yourself.
When you appreciate your flaws and faults, they lose their power over you. Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.
Try not to be one of them.
What you experience in life starts with your perception.
In almost every case, nothing is stopping you, nothing is holding you back but your own thoughts about yourself and how life is.
Your perception creates your beliefs. Your beliefs create your behaviours.
And your behaviours produce your experience.

Once upon a time……

imageSometimes the hardest part of the journey is simply believing you’re worthy of the trip.
And you are! You are worth it.
Tattoo that right onto your brain..!

The world starts to respond when you believe that about yourself. It doesn’t always look like you thought it would, but positive shifts begin to take place when you start to recognize and acknowledge your own self-worth.

So watch your thoughts and stop any self-deprecating thoughts dead in their tracks. Remind yourself that once upon a time, in an unguarded, honest moment, you recognized yourself as a worthy friend.

Our own path.

imageAs children, we are seldom told we have a place in life that is uniquely ours alone. Instead, we are encouraged to believe that our life should somehow fulfil the expectations of others.
That we should find our happiness exactly as they have found theirs.
Rather than being taught to ask ourselves who we really are.
We are trained to ask others for permission.
We are, in effect, schooled to live other people’s versions of their lives.

Every day is designed and developed as told to us by someone else!
And then one day when we break free to survey our dreams, seeking to fulfil ourselves, we see that most of our own dreams have gone unfulfilled because we believed, and those around us believed, that what we wanted for ourselves was somehow beyond our reach.

It’s time to unlearn these lies and make changes.
It takes courage to grow wiser and become who we really are.
But if you believe in yourself and your dreams, you have to chase them, you have to fulfil them and become who you really are, NOT who you are told to be.

Live learn and love for yourself instead of others.
How can we truly love ourselves and be loved by others if we have no idea who we really are inside.
It’s up to you and only you to find that, to find you.
