Passion is a feeling that tells you: this is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I’m going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.
Sometimes life steps in and you simply must deal with it. How you see your life, your situation and circumstances that you cannot control or change, is determined by your point of view. Decide to be a positive, loving person.
Choose to act, instead of reacting, especially when surrounded by drama, chaos and stress. You are stronger and more courageous than you may feel at times. You have the power to find peace, acceptance and courage in the worst of circumstances. Take the high road and deal with it.
Your life is a gift to the world. Be the gift that you were born to be. Everything you have experienced up to now ~ the good, the bad and the ugly, can be used for a greater good. Regardless of what is going on around you, be thankful that you are still here. You have new thoughts, untapped strength and more skills that can be developed.
Silence your own unforgiving spirit and extreme self-criticism, that can steal your joy, harm your health and stunt your personal growth. Give up microwaved solutions to challenges and shortcuts to success. You can’t pull up a plant up from its roots to make it grow. The things that really matter in life take purposeful planning, time, love and care. Do your work, stay the course, live in the present.
Be careful of your self-talk. Without monitoring your mind and your mouth, the majority of what you say to yourself can poison your attitude, weaken your spirit, drain your energy.
It’s easy to live in regret, thinking about what you should have done. Don’t go through life looking in your rear view mirror. You can’t do anything about the past, but you can do something about your future.
Continue to work on yourself and your dream. Do not look for others to hold your heart, take your hand or have your back. You are responsible for your own life and for creating your own path. Commit to move out of your own way. Stop procrastinating or waiting for someone to rescue you.
