"We absolutely insist on enjoying life" ~Anon. Today, I will not let others dictate my mood... I will not let others steal my peace... I will not let anyone or anything bring me down. Today, I will hold my head up... I will know who I am... I will be happy... I will Love... I will help people... I will be the best person I know how to be. Today, I will absolutely insist on enjoying life! Have a great day everybody!
If I get mad, I try to look at myself... not the person that I 'THINK' made me mad. Example: If someone cheats on me & I get mad... it's because I have a fear of being alone. If someone is talking bad about me & I get mad... it's because I have a fear of public opinion. If someone steals from me & I get mad... it's because I have a fear of running out of money. So you see, my anger is actually caused by my fear... not your actions. The goal for today, get rid of fear... & live free of anger! Have a great day everybody!
"Tact is the art of making a point... without making an enemy" ~JWVG. When I make a point using a mistake as the example, I try to point out my mistakes... not yours. When I make a point using a victory as the example, I try to point out your victories... not mine. If I point out your mistakes, it will probably upset you... & the point will be lost. If I point out my victories, you'll view me as arrogant... & the point will be lost. The goal for today, practice tact & common sense so I can reach & help more people. Have a great day everybody!
My side... your side... & the Truth! You shouldn't blindly follow me & I shouldn't blindly follow you. We should listen to each other... study our history... analyze the facts & work together to reestablish the Truth. I say 'reestablish' because the Truth never leaves us... we simply turn a blind eye to it. The goal for today, screw my side... screw your side... let's find the Truth & call it our side! Have a great day everybody!
"The light which shines in the eye is really the light of the heart. The light which fills the heart is really the light of God" ~Rumi. One day I looked into my own eyes in the mirror & told myself a lie... but I found it impossible to convince myself of this lie. The reason that I couldn't convince myself is because they are not only my eyes... they are God's eyes & there's no fooling God... I've tried. The goal for today, get in touch with the 'Truth' that comes from within & listen to It... It knows best! Have a great day everybody!
If someone wrongs me & I feel hurt, I've got two problems that need to be addressed. I have to forgive them in order to get rid of my resentment toward them... but I also have to find the fear that caused me to feel hurt & address that part of the problem too. Forgiving their actions, won't make my fear go away & that's where my hurt comes from. The goal for today, remember that healing is a two part process... 1) Forgive the wrong doings of others & set them free... 2) Find & fix my own fears & set myself free! Have a great day everybody!
"I can't escape this now, unless you show me how" ~Imagine Dragons. I ran into a problem that I didn't know how to fix... & I was afraid to ask for help. I thought that needing help was a sign of weakness, but it's not... it's just an admission that I don't know everything. It doesn't make me weak or stupid... it makes me humble & that's a good thing. Once I asked for help, not only was I able to solve my problem... but I also had the power to help others solve their problems. The goal for today, humility & helpfulness! Have a great day everybody!
I used to manipulate people into loving me... I used to give, expecting something in return... I used to use 'my truth' as an excuse to do wrong... I used to base all of my decisions on fear. Through that misery, here is what I learned: Love must be a choice... or it isn't really Love... Selfless acts must have no strings attached... or they are not really selfless... Honesty must apply to us all... or it isn't really honesty... Pure motives must bring good... or they are not really pure. The goal for today, do the Right thing, for the Right reason & live Free! Have a great day everybody!
