Just a few things to think about when life delivers a dose of difficulty and stress…

Just a few things to think about when life delivers a dose of difficulty and stress…

1.You are not what happened to you in the past. – No matter how chaotic the past has been, the future is a clean, fresh, wide open slate. You are not your past habits. You are not your past failures. You are not how others have at one time treated you. You are only who you think you are right now in this moment. You are only what you do right now in this moment.

2.Not getting what you want can be a blessing. – Not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of good luck, because it forces you reevaluate things, opening new doors to opportunities and information you would have otherwise overlooked. Remember, some things in life fall apart so that better things can fall together.

3.Being a ‘work in progress’ is a great state to be in. – Stop berating yourself for being a work in progress. Start embracing it! Because being a work in progress doesn’t mean you’re not good enough today; it means you want a better tomorrow, and you wish to love yourself completely, so you can live your life fully. It means you’re determined to heal your heart, expand your mind and cultivate the gifts you know you’re meant to share. May we all be works in progress forever, and celebrate the fact that we are!

4.Nobody else can do it for you. – Keep doing what you know in your heart is right for YOU. Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions louder than your words. Live by choice, not by chance. Make changes, not excuses. Be motivated, not manipulated. Work to excel, not compete.

Choose to listen to your inner voice, not the jumbled opinions of everyone else. It’s your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

5.Life is not easy, but it’s worth it. – If you expect it to be, you will perpetually disappoint yourself. Achieving anything worthwhile in life takes effort. So start every morning ready to run farther than you did yesterday and fight harder than you ever have before. Above all, make sure you properly align your efforts with your goals. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it in the end.

3 With the beginning of each sunrise, think to yourself;” Here’s a brand-new day coming into my life. I can’t wait to see how will get along ! I wonder what’s in store for us ? What an adventure…spending  time  with a day I’ve never met before !”

4 Be open to the possibilities.

5 Count your blessings. Each one is so valuable, and they’re the best treasures you’ve got. And while you’re counting the big things, be sure to include the smaller ones too.

6 A little added to a little…adds up to a lot.

7 Everyone’s life is live somewhere between their aspirations and their limitations. Successful people have limitations, like everyone else, and setbacks that are hard to ignore. But they offset them with efforts and aspirations… that absolutely soar.

8 Try hard and dream big.

9 If you think of your life as a story that gradually unfolds, you will embrace the changes and more fully appreciate the moments.

Inspiring Words

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
