Don’t let it haunt you…your past. Don’t carry it around with you everywhere you go. Don’t let it take up all that room in your thoughts. It needs to be left behind.
We all make mistakes. We’ve all done things that we’ve been less than proud of. All of us. The point ere is- do we learn from these things and move on successfully- or do we just keep reliving them over and over and over again?
Your choice. Stay stuck with the “ghosts” of yesterday or move forward towards a brighter tomorrow?
Choose wisely…your friends. It has been said that we tend to “take on” the characteristics of those closest to us. Do you want to be around people who encourage you and make you smile? Do you want to be around people who support your goals? (And you do the same for them)
Think about your friendships. Is there one that you have been questioning for awhile? Is there something you could do to improve that relationship and have you tried?
If so, it may be time to move on. Sad, yes it is, but we all know when they point has been reached. We need to offer support but also receive it as well.
Cultivate it as much as you can…an attitude of calm. Count to ten before you get angry. Instead of getting into an argument, walk away until you calm down. Take things at a slower pace when you can- you don’t have to be in a rush to go everywhere and do everything. Slow down a little. Spend some quiet time- maybe a walk or listening to relaxing music.
Cut off anger and drama before it takes hold. Cultivate that peaceful feeling.
It’s always the right time…to begin. If you have the idea, the dream, the goal- then it’s time. You will find a way to make it happen. It is why the dream lives on inside you- because you have what it takes to bring it into the physical world.
Use that power and use it now- don’t let your dream die an early death.
It sure helps…being thankful. It just makes you feel better, more calm, more peaceful, and just happier.it makes you glad to be alive.
Think about the times that you have been thankful for something. Think about the way you felt. Think about the actions you then took as a result of feeling good. You took some great steps, right? You probably got a lot more done than if you sat around feeling sorry for yourself, right?
Let’s all shift our focus towards being thankful today and then we’ll make it a great day!
Are you happy? Do you make it a point to be happy about simple things- a sunny day, a smile of a child, the beauty of a flower, for example?
Or are you only happy when something ore monumental comes along- like a new car or a big raise at work?
Of course you should be happy about those bigger things, but let’s face it, those things don’t come about everyday, so if you’re waiting on those types of things to make you happy then you may be waiting for a very long time.
But if we can be happy about simple things, every day things that we sometimes (okay often) take for granted because we just don’t think they’re that important to be excited about, then we will be happier more often- and that positive mood will drawn in even more for us to be happy about.
Notice them…your feelings. They are your true barometers; they are your measuring sticks and your compass about the direction you’re going in.
If something doesn’t feel right; if it feels “off” somehow then don’t ignore it. Stop and really think about what you’re doing. If it still makes you uncomfortable then maybe it’s time you changed your path…or at least made a slight adjustment
Give your inner self credit for knowing what’s best for you. Trust it. And go with your gut.
Hang in there! Sure, sometimes the road to our goal is not all smooth sailing- there often are many bumps and detours along the way. There are times when we stop to ask ourselves “Is this really worth it?” and then we just kind of stand there, scratching our heads and thinking that, well, maybe it’s time to stop and consider going in a different direction altogether.
But what if what you want is just around that next bend? What happens if you turn around now? Then you’ll never know, will you? You could spend the rest of your life always wondering about “what might have been” if you just hung in there a little longer…
