Most people make themselves unhappy simply by finding it impossible to accept life just as it is presenting itself right now. Remember a significant key to happiness is letting go of what you assume your life is supposed to be like right now, and sincerely appreciating it for everything that it is.
It’s wild how we outgrow what we once thought we couldn’t live without, and then we fall in love with what we didn’t even know we wanted. Life keeps leading us down paths we would never travel if it were up to us. Don’t be afraid, have faith, and trust the journey. Be a work in progress today, and celebrate the fact you are!
I don’t like to gamble but the one thing that I will bet on is myself
Fear creates limitation. When we fear, we become incapable of taking risks, of living our lives to the fullest. Whatever fears you are facing, whether it is fear of love, rejection, of heartbreak, or growing up, of being forgotten, or even of the dark, remember that your fear limits you. It prevents you from growing into a stronger, better person. Try to understand your fears for when you understand them, they no longer have a power over you. Let go of your fears, express it to someone and just release it.
Sometimes life closes doors because it’s time to move forward. And that’s a good thing because we often don’t move unless circumstances force us to. When times are tough, remind yourself that no pain comes without a purpose. Move on from what hurt you, but never forget what it taught you. Just because you’re struggling doesn’t mean you’re failing. Every great success requires some type of worthy struggle to get there. Good things take time. Stay patient and stay positive. Everything is going to come together; maybe not immediately, but eventually.
Remember that there are two kinds of pain: pain that hurts and pain that changes you. When you roll with life, instead of resisting it, both kinds help you grow.
Always remember to follow your heart. It is your compass, your seed, and your source of life.
Be Bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to your heart, and strong enough to live the life you’ve always imagined.
Forgive others. Not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.Jonathan Lockwood Huie
