Listen

imageWords to myself every morning –
No matter how many times you break down, there should always be a little voice inside you that says,

“NO, you’re not done yet! Get back up!”

Listen to this voice. What you need to realize is, life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel but you are well equipped for it as long as you tap into your inner strength, and allow it to flourish forward.

Three little things

Mental health can affect us all in some way whether it is us or loved one struggling. Life’s twists and turns can make us feel down and start us off with depression.
We then might get anxious in various situations and struggle to make sense of everything, and sometimes without really knowing why.
Other life events can make us feel worthless and unwanted/unloved and make us think things that maybe we wouldn’t usually.

I guess in a way that’s why I blog, so people can see they are not alone.

With Christmas coming up it is a time of year I think affects a lot of people, so if you have any family members/friends who you see struggling, try to find time to have a listening ear, a smile and a comforting hug. Those three little things go a long way.

Stay strong everyone in your daily battles and keep fighting through, on your own it may feel a challenge but the challenge lessens with us all fighting through together and making each others lives that much more positive and brighter.

Just a little note

imageLittle note to myself ……
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Discontent is the principal necessity of positive growth, but only if you do something constructive with it. Without deviation from what you’ve been doing, progress is not possible.
Don’t be someone who goes through greater lengths to avoid change than you do to obtain what you desire.
You must define and embrace the necessary changes that move you forward.
Your life will begin to improve when you define precisely what ‘improve’ means to you.
The agonies and frustrations will start to ease only when you have something real and positive to replace them with.
Happiness is not a goal, it’s the result of a life well lived or loved.
The question is…

How do you want to live going forward?

You must decide exactly where you wish to go. Create a formidable intention for yourself, and feed that intention with the passion and energy that’s in your desire for change.
Go beyond your discontent for what is, and instead focus on imagining and creating the best of what’s possible.
Clearly know where you wish to go, and then take the first real step that gets you there.
