It doesn’t matter what other people think of you. We all want to be liked and loved but what really matters is what we think. It’s important to be able to look in the mirror and like what you see.
It’s not worth arguing with someone who doesn’t listen. Know when it’s time to smile and agree to disagree.
When someone says I want to be honest with you – what they really mean is I’m going to unleash on you. Maybe we can save some time and say “no that’s ok – lets be polite with each other -no judgements”.
Text messages, this is the best way to allow someone to ruin your day. They just sit there and type away – before you know it, you are reading paragraphs on what they think of you and how great they are. Don’t waste your time – don’t even read it – erase it and send a thumbs up.
Sometimes the people we love and care about say and do things that are hurtful. Do not waste your time being angry at them. And definitely do not step down to their level. Love conquers all – don’t ruin relationships on things that don’t matter.
Remember you don’t always have to defend yourself -you know your worth and that’s all that matters. Be strong today but be soft. Use little words and big actions to prove your points. Let Jesus be your teacher.
Do you or someone you know make life much harder than it needs to be? Here are some tips to living a happy life.
1) Gratitude- when you give thanks you tend to focus on what is good.
2) Compassion – reminds us not to judge others until we walk in the other person’s shoes.
3) Bond – having a close bond with your family and friends makes life easier and pleasurable.
4) Unconditional love – no strings or expectations. Pure love through an open heart.
5) Flexibility – when you are flexible you will be able to go with the flow. As we all know life can be unpredictable and we need to resist the urge to stay stagnant. Being flexible to change is key to a happy life.
Be grateful everyday, and strive to be better than yesterday. This is my mantra. By having a personal statement you are reminded that life doesn’t control you – YOU control life. We have the choice to be happy or miserable.
Life doesn’t just happen we make it happen. By using free will we are creating our own reality. Our actions causes reactions in our lives and happiness. So before making a decision be sure to think of the consequences.
To live a peaceful life we must act with compassion towards one another. And respect everything and everyone around us. If we work hard for what we want, we will be able to achieve it. Be passionate about life and create the life you want.
Life is as easy or as difficult as you make it. One can wake up and thank the universe for a new day. Or you can wake up grunting and upset that it’s morning and keep hitting the snooze button.
One can look at sleep as the caffeine he or she needs to wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed. Or think that the day can not start until the caffeine kicks in from their morning coffee.
When it’s time to go to work one can dread it – complain about the commute and sulk. Or put a smile on their face and be grateful to have a job to go to.
You see it’s all about perspective if you look at the glass as being half empty then you are most likely going to find things to complain about. However if you are truly appreciative of life and you roll with the punches you will find yourself happy and successful.
