Every experience, both the good and the bad, will eventually get you to where you are supposed to be. Every win, every loss and every mistake. Don’t be afraid to fuck up and don’t expect success overnight. Get lost, get so lost and find yourself over and over again. Work hard and don’t stop until you make yourself proud.
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life”. I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
When it is time for something new, you will feel it. You will feel a desire to let go, to shed layers, to move, to re-create. You will know because there will be subtle shifts all around you. You will release the old because you are really clearing the path for what’s ahead. Trust this process. Know that life does not take from us anything unless there is something else awaiting its replacement. Understand & value the importance of subtle shifts.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I found it fun to watch, so it’s a fun to share. I didn’t know there’s a foster banana liquor. Now my travel diaries include one more place in 2022. I like trying such recipies even know i am not a big fan of alcohol.)
If you are intentional about practicing thankfulness every day, you will see the magic begin to take place in your life. You are going to see doors open that you didn’t think were possible. You are going to see opportunities come and find you that you didn’t know existed. And, you’re going to see your influence expand like never before.
Your thankfulness will position you in just the right place to be the recipient of extravagant grace, faithfulness, and goodness. Stay thankful. Practice gratitude. On the good days and the lows days, stay thankful. Everything in the created world is shifting in your favor. YOUR BEST DAYS ARE STILL AHEAD OF YOU.
You are a luxury. Remember that. You are a luxury high end commodity. Nothing less. Only the richest can afford you. You make people look like they’ve made good choices. You make them look more attractive. You make them feel powerful. You give them status. You are a luxury. Remember that.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above the. Point blank it’s one of my favourite songs from 2021. You are allowed to laugh at the lyrics, i like SNL for good reasons.)
