The One You Have Been Waiting For


Forgive and Move Forward

 We often keep our hearts closed, not because we don’t trust others not to leave us, let us down, or stop loving us, but because we don’t trust ourselves to survive the pain of them leaving, letting us down, or not loving us anymore.  How ironic, considering that only by suffering through these very losses, do we come to realize our true strength.  
Truth be told, it takes a strong heart to love, but it takes an even stronger heart to continue to love after it’s been hurt.  If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart.  You are stronger now and better equipped to find the kind of love you deserve. 
 Bottom line: Don’t let the wrong people from your past keep you from the right people in your present.  Forgive and move forward.

Positive Change


Not Too Seriously

Laugh at yourself and at life.
Not in the spirit of derision or whining self-pity,
but as a remedy, a miracle drug, that will ease your pain,
cure your depression, and help you to put in perspective

that seemingly terrible defeat and worry
with laughter at your predicaments,
thus freeing your mind to think clearly
toward the solution that is certain to come.
Never take yourself too seriously.


- Og Mandino

How Much Do You Really Want It?

If you want the benefits of something in life, you have to also want the costs. 
 If you want the six-pack abs, you have to want the sweat, the sore muscles, the early mornings at the gym, and the low carb
meals.  If you want the successful business, you have to also want the late nights, the risky business deals and decisions, and the possibility of failing fifty times to learn what you need to know to succeed.
 If you find yourself wanting something month after month, year after year, yet nothing happens and you never come any closer to it, then maybe what you actually want is just an idealization, a fantasy, and a false promise.  Maybe you don’t actually want it enough at all, because you’re not willing to suffer though the work it’s going to take to achieve it. yourself wanting something month after month, year after year, yet nothing happens and you never come any closer to it, then maybe what you actually want is just an idealization, a fantasy, and a false promise.  Maybe you don’t actually want it enough, because you’re not willing to suffer though the work it’s going to take to achieve it.

Boundaries


Blaming

If you sit around for too long blaming others for the things they did or did not do, or know or didn't know, you’ll remain sitting in one spot until you die. 
 Placing blame is easy, because it means you don’t have to do anything; you just have to sit around for your entire life. 
 But that’s not living; that’s dying.
