At some point you have to stop being so angry, you have to stop being so sad, you have to stop killing yourself, and start being gentle with yourself. At some point you have to just let it all go and be happy. You have to spread love instead of being afraid of it. You have to love yourself and everyone around you before its too late.
Don’t waste away being unhappy over trivial things. Don’t do it. Don’t do it to yourself and dont let other people do it to you. Life is too small to celebrate the goodness & too long to stay unhappy. BE A HAPPY HAPPENING VERSION OF YOURSELF.
Make choices that make people wonder if you’ve lost your mind. Disappoint people if needed. Fly off the handle. Learn to be alone. Learn to be with others too. Smile when you’re sad, just to confuse those who are trying to bring you down. Live a good life. Be kind when you can and understanding when you can’t. Be irreplaceable, undefeatable, incorrigible. Do all of the small things with grace, laughter and an unshakeable belief in what’s to come. Don’t you worry. Be a fearless authentic version of yourself. Life is fun, let it be.
Farmers aren’t getting minimum price, milk production isn’t profitable, coffee is heavily under paid for business owners, fishing boats aren’t getting enough fish, truck drivers shortage & transportation companies are in loss.
I told these previous few lines to my dad while laughing at a news bulletin. That news anchor was trying to show how we are almost there to hit Armageddon. My dad’s response to this was amazing. He said; “Who will give interviews to these news media networks if everyone starts doing well in life? And those who are doing well have no time for other’s bullshit. Once you have your shit together, you don’t care about such news.”
I totally agree with him on this one. Tunnel vision is a product of success.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. The title of this video is “HOW SAFE IS THE CHICKEN YOU ARE EATING?”. It’s frightening to see what damage poultry chicken can cause to our body. I had to edit today’s post to share this. Watch it & take enough precautions with your food. Stay safe.)
I used to run and hide from my feelings especially when I felt something that was upsetting, painful, or uncomfortable. But over time I’ve learned to accept all of my feelings. I know that in order for me to work through them, I must first honor and embrace all emotions. They are a part of me. Therefore they are meaningful and valid.
Pick a feeling that you’re afraid or ashamed of. Feeling fear, anger, or sadness is okay as long as you don’t let it define you. Embrace your emotions and remind yourself how valuable they are. Don’t invalidate your feelings. Honor them.
Nobody’s going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself, whether you’re rich or poor, out of money or raking it in, the beneficiary of ridiculous fortune or terrible injustice. And you have to do it no matter what is true. No matter what is hard. No matter what unjust, sad, sucky things have befallen you. Self pity is a dead-end road. You make the choice to drive down it. It’s up to you to decide to stay parked there or to turn around and drive out.
LIFE ITSELF IS A PRIVILEGE. BUT TO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, WELL THAT IS A CHOICE. (Not my words).
Healthy doesn’t mean a salad. Healthy isn’t a measure of weight. Being healthy involves your mind, spirit and heart just as much as it involves your body. Each person’s version of healthy is different. Sweets don’t make you unhealthy but sadness will.
I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live and see the seasons change, to have gifts at christmas and at my birthday, to travel sometimes, to have a good education and a great access to culture. I’m flattered when people compliment me, when people smile at me, when people are polite to me.
There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me. I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful. I have every reason in the world to be happy. Take life day by day and be grateful for the little things. Don’t get caught up in what you can’t control. Focus on the positive.
Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can. Apologize when you should and let go of what you can. Take chances. Give everything and have no regrets. Life is too short to be unhappy. You have to take the good with the bad. Smile when you’re sad. Love what you got and always remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget. Learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong.
At the end always remember; life is fun & life goes on.
“Great things comes to those who wait”. That’s true, but you have to work for it & earn it. My observation says; lazy minds always daydream about achieving great things effortlessly. You are defined by the choices you make. Your life is yours to live and nobody else can save you or live it for you. And unless you were born rich or marry rich, there’s probably not going to be a lot of handouts coming your way. Nobody knows exactly what you think or want except you and nobody will be as upset as you if you don’t achieve your goals. So don’t depend on someone else to build your dreams for you.
Be the creator of your own happiness and take responsibility for your past and present to create the future you want.
Certain things must be kept personal no matter how clumsy life gets, two such things which bug us the most are past resentments & fears and weaknesses.
Everyone has fears and weaknesses and sharing these things will not provide you comfort. People enjoy seeing other people’s weaknesses, so don’t feed them. You can study up on your fears and weaknesses or if that isn’t working, get some professional help.
Resentments about the past or constantly digging up the past, It’s not going to help. Those past experiences can easily affect today. Do not let these define the moment you are in. The best thing you can do is to express yourself in the moment. This way you can prevent past regrets and resentments. Forgive others in order to be peaceful, move on and let go.
