You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.
— Paulo Coelho
Keep your joy. Life is going to throw you curves. There will be disappointments, things that aren’t fair. That’s when you have to put your foot down and say, “Yet will I rejoice in the Lord.” We should make this decision every morning, “I will be joyful today.” Decide ahead of time that you’re going to enjoy the day. When people dump things on you, keep your lid on. Don’t let that get in you. When you’re tempted to get upset, frustrated, remind yourself that you have the power to remain calm. Keep it in perspective; this day is a gift. Honor God by living it grateful, happy, and to the fullest.
— Joel Osteen
Don’t allow your past to control your present or your future life, whatever happened you must let it go. Leave the pain of your past behind so it cannot ruin your future, leave the darkness of your past behind so it cannot block the light of your bright future.
Your past is gone, whatever happened, whether unjust, cruel, harsh, whatever the case, reliving the events will never do you any good.
If someone did you wrong the only way you can win is if you let go and move on. If you live in hate they win, if you live in the victim story they win. If you want to win you must focus on building your future and start right now.
Release that weight from your back so you can be free, don’t allow events from the past which are now gone to ruin this moment which is perfect, this moment which is now to enjoy, which is ready for you to live fully.
Other people’s opinions and judgments
Don’t allow other people’s opinions and judgments to control the direction of your life. The need to fit in and feel wanted can cause you to travel down paths you don’t want to travel. People pleasing is a curse that should be avoided at all costs.
Before you do anything ask yourself, am I doing this because I want to do it or because of my fear of judgment from others if I don’t. You were born unique for a reason, you were born to stand out, to be appreciated and loved for who you are.
Don’t dim your lights so you fit into the dull background of other people’s lives. Shine Bright As You Are. Those who really care for you will see that light and shine with you.
— Fearless Soul
All things are difficult before they are easy.
Take a deep breath. It’s just a bad day, not a bad life.
I don’t have to attend every argument I’m invited to.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do.
Just give me coffee and watch me make it happen. 😎
Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can.
You don’t have to give in, you can stay strong and take a higher road.
I am thankful for all those difficult people in my life. They have shown me exactly who I do not want to be.
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
There is no secret ingredient in the recipe for success. Work hard, grab opportunities and follow your passion.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
— Marcel Proust
