There is so much power in our words, more than we realise. They can do so much good and so much damage. They can create peace or cause people to break out in violence. When we’re hurting the most it’s easy to lash out at other people, but then we become the source of the problem we are personally suffering from. Don’t take your pain out on others or you will just be perpetuating the cycle.
If you’re hurting, do your best to seek outlets that are healthy. Find a friend to talk to, express yourself artistically, write in your journal, or seek professional help.
Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world. -BUDDHA.
Each and every one of us has a different beginning to our story. Our lives all start in different places, but when we dedicate our hearts and minds to what we are most passionate about, there is no stopping us. Reward and success are measured by how much you try and how much you receive.
Be proud of who you are and where you came from. Look forward to wherever it is you are going and who it is you want to be.
It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be. -J. K. ROWLING
I know that everybody worries about what’s coming next, but in my experience it doesn’t do any good. It just makes you more stressed out and usually you’re just worrying about things that may never even happen. Today and this moment is all we have, so stay present and focused and count your blessings for today and trust that the rest will fall into place.
Count your blessings today. No need to worry about tomorrow, when we’ve been blessed with today. (Not my words.)
Listen to that little voice inside yourself, like a loving parent or a good friend. This is the truest part of your soul, the key to your happiness. Sometimes thoughts, fears, or other people get too loud and we can’t hear ourselves. Do what you need to do to get back in touch.
Today, follow what your heart tells you. Nobody but you knows what is right for you, so listen to your instincts.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I talk very little about games even though i play Xbox games almost every weekend for 1-2 hours. This game trailer looks amazing. Happy to see video game developers connecting cultures & deities.)
Keep going. No matter how stuck you feel. No matter how bad things are right now. No matter how many days you’ve spent crying. No matter how hopeless and depressed you feel. No matter how many days you’ve spent wishing things were different. I promise you won’t feel this way forever. Keep going.
While you may not have control over everything that happens in life, you do have control over your mindset and perspective.
You can choose to think that you’re down on your luck, or you decide to see that you are being set-up for something extraordinary.
You can choose to focus on all the chaos happening around you, or you decide to look for the good that is emerging.
You can choose to live in a state of victimhood, or you can decide to live from the stance of a champion.
Make the decision that come what may come, this new year is going to be good and beautiful and something magical, not because the world’s problems finally faded away, but because you chose to start changing your perspective.
ONLY YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR PERSPECTIVE. (Not my words.)
If you want to align with REAL FRIENDS, REAL LOVERS, REAL COMMUNITY, share your truth PROUDLY, UNASHAMEDLY & CONSISTENTLY. Shout it. Sing it. Write it. Dance it. Paint the most AUTHENTIC you all over the canvas of your life. Whoever’s left applauding your art are YOUR PEOPLE. Whoever fades away was never yours to begin with.
(This movie trailer got nothing to do with the post above. I am not a fan of online dating or any form of fast-track romance. My big reason is, i trust no one except my family & myself. And Yes, there’s a group of 17 friends whom i consider family. Trust & respect are earned with consistency & communication.)
