The only one who gets to decide your worth is you. It doesn’t come from your bank account or the number of friends you have. It doesn’t come from what someone else says you are worth. It’s called self worth for a reason- it comes from you. It comes from being yourself and being proud of who you are. It comes from being someone that you can count on and someone you love.
The numbers will change with time, but what won’t change is who you are deep inside beautiful, limitless, wonderful, creative, strong, capable and that is where your worth comes from. (Not my words.)
Life doesn’t always go in a straight line. Things get messy and tangled. And our paths twist and turn in many directions. The right things happen at the wrong time and opportunities get passed by. Some things happen that we just cannot understand in the moment no matter how badly we want an answer. And some things that we wish would happen just never do.
Life can be a little messy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be wonderful. Because even in the messiness, even in the mistakes and missed chances, even in the midst of not knowing what to do or where to turn, there are still so many beautiful moments. There is still love and joy and light. There is still laughter and kindness. So maybe life is messy. But maybe, it doesn’t need to be anything else. Maybe it’s in all of the messiness that we can see all of the things that matter most of all. (Not my words.)
Make each day your own beautiful work of art. Take time to do things that inspire you before you get started with your day. Take a walk outside to simply be with the sun as it rises; let its boundless glow inspire you and fill you with warmth. Read a few pages of a book that fills you with light. Hug your loved ones or play with your puppy for a few extra minutes. And as you go about your day, remember that there is magic all around you even if some days it’s harder to find.
At the end of your day, take a moment as you rest your head on your pillow to find gratitude for all the wonderful things you experienced and created throughout your day. Because even if this day wasn’t extraordinary, even if this day was an average one, it played a part in your beautiful life, and that’s something to be wonderfully grateful for.
Sometimes we need tears to be able to access the deepest joy. When times are hard, make sure you allow yourself to feel the sadness. Let your tears fall knowing that they will surely pass and something wonderful is on its way to you.
If you’re sad, take some time to try and remember the joy that will undoubtedly follow. Remember it’s always darkest before the dawn.
Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. -PSALM 30:5.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Can’t say how appropriate is this song in such circumstances. But a light-hearted humour is welcome even during the darkest days. This song is both quirky & funny. Power to peace.)
Having really big dreams is wonderful. But in order to achieve them you have to start setting goals and writing them down. It’s not enough just to think about them. You have to actively pursue them. The best feeling is crossing one of your goals off your list after you’ve worked so hard to achieve a dream.
Make a list of your goals for the year. Stay focused and start making strides to cross them off your list. Set goals and dream big.
Anything you want to be wonderful at requires patience and practice. It’s as simple as brushing our teeth, which we hardly think about because we do it three times a day. By repeatedly doing a healthy habit we make it a regular part of our routine. It’s good to have healthy habits; the more you have, the better you will become. When you strive everyday to be better version of yourself, eventually you will be.
Figure out what you love and what is good for you and make it a habit. Every consistent approach results a positive outcome at the end. We are what we repeatedly do becomes excellence, then is not an act but a habit. (Not my words).
I love people who aren’t afraid to be their own weird and wonderfully imperfect self. These people make people happy, these people are so rare and special. We need more people like this in the world, and that’s why you shouldn’t ever wish to be anybody but your weird and wonderfully imperfect self.
IF SOMEONE asks, “Has the best moment of your life arrived yet?”
We may say that it will come very soon. But if we continue to live in the same way, it may never arrive. We have to transform this moment into the most wonderful moment, and we can do that by stoping, stopping running to the future, stopping worrying about the past, stopping accumulating so much.
You are a free person; you are alive. Open your eyes and enjoy the sunshine, the beautiful sky, ocean, nature, animals and the wonderful children around you. Breathing in and out consciously helps you become your best, calm, fresh, solid, clear, and free, able to enjoy the present moment as the best moment of your life.
Every Moment is different. No Moment stays forever. That is not scary or sad. That’s the beauty of it all. (Not my words).
(Post is over. This paragraph is about me. That WONDERFUL CHILDREN written above caught my attention after i scheduled this post. My heart goes weak towards babies, puppies & horses. Babies sooth my soul. Puppies/dogs make me a marathon runner every morning or evening. And horses are oversized puppies in my eyes. My friends say i am a kind human. I think my kindness is more of a fatherly instinct, there’s a huge provider mentality dad lives insides me who just wants to pamper kids, spoil his family & pet pets. And yes i am single & someday i want few dozen babies+puppies.😂)
In LOVE, I have been elated and brokenhearted and felt every emotion in between. As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to embrace the painful parts, because I realize they make me stronger and they are just parts of life. It hurts to power through the rough times but just like a muscle, it must be exercised before it’s able to become stronger.
Think about a specific painful moment in your life, and then think about how that feeling didn’t last forever even though you thought it would. Remember that life will continue to go on and time really does heal all wounds. I’m grateful for all the love and all the heartache I’ve experienced in my life. Both have been equally wonderful.
