Foundation of growth

In life don’t try to be perfect, no one is. Just be an excellent example of being human.
Growth requires pain and happiness but try to remember that those with the strength to succeed in the long run are the ones who lay a firm foundation of growth with the bricks that life has thrown at them.
So don’t be afraid to fall apart for a little while.
You will always be learning even if you don’t realise it.
There is no stage of life that does not contain new lessons, as long as you breathing there will be something more to learn and as long as you follow your heart and never stop learning, you’ll turn not older, but newer every day.
Don’t forget to acknowledge the lesson, especially when things don’t go your way. If you make a mistake that sets you back a little, it only means you have to try that little bit harder, listen that little bit deeper, and over come the feeling of failure.
It’s not easy I know but it is in all of us, somewhere hidden deep within our souls.
If you believe in yourself just a little, then know you are capable.
Just do it, and be willing to fail and learn along the way.
At least you will know you gave it your best shot.
At the end of the day, whether you choose to go with it, flow with it, resist it, change it, or hide from it, life goes on. If what you did today didn’t turn out as you hoped, tomorrow is a new opportunity to do it differently, or to do nothing at all.
Never give up on yourself, and never abandon your values and dreams.
As long as you feel pain, you’re still alive.
As long as you make mistakes, you’re still human.
And as long as you keep trying, there’s still hope.


Shimmer and shine

imageYou are like a building with stained-glass windows.
You always shimmer and shine when the sun is out, but when darkness sets in your true magnificence is revealed only if there is light shining from within you.
It’s your duty, and yours alone, to keep your inner light shining bright. So learn to love yourself first. Loving yourself does not mean being selfish and narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather, it means welcoming yourself as the most honoured guest in your own heart and mind…a guest worthy of extra care and respect. Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it. Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it. That’s a great start.

The biggest killer

imageDecide this minute to never again beg anyone for the respect, and attention that you should be showing yourself.
Be your own best friend.
Trust your inner spirit and follow your heart. Accept who you are completely, the good and the bad, and make changes in your life as YOU see fit, not because you think anyone else wants you to be different, but because you know it’s the right thing to do, for YOU.
Be the person you will be happy to live with for the duration of your life.
Don’t rely on anyone else, for your happiness and self-worth, because in the end they will always let you down.
Know that if you can’t love and respect yourself, no one else will be able to either.
Self judgement is the biggest killer.

The only question is..

imageGood morning. Another day. Another Chance.
A dream within a dream..!
You cannot wait for the perfect time…it will never come. If you think this moment feels like the wrong time, think again. It’s just uncertainty messing with your mind.
Most of the time you must dare to jump.
Today is the first day of a new beginning…You can do as you please… Make the hours count.
You can turn your life around and be what ever you dream to be.

The only question is.. Who do you want that person to be?
Caring ? Loving ? Compassionate ? Loyal ? Hard working ? Tender ? Considerate ? Thoughtful ? Sympathetic ? Supportive ? Helpful ? Hospitable ? Charitable ?

Right now is the right time to decide.

Your greatest weapon…..

imageYour greatest weapon against stress and negativity is your ability to choose one thought over another. Happiness escapes from those who refuse to see the good in what they have.

When life gives you every reason to be negative, think positive. Smile, not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and thankful for all the good things you do have and all the problems you know you don’t have.
Stop discrediting yourself for everything you aren’t, and start giving yourself credit for everything you ARE.

We have to learn to be our own best friends, because sometimes we fall too easily into the trap of being our own worst enemies.
