Life is unpredictable enough. Why do we allow ourselves to complain relentlessly about the things we can’t have and the obstacles in our lives. Whining too much and planting seeds of self-pity wherever we go undermines our ability to succeed and is unhealthy (which does quite the opposite of what we want to achieve). In the long run, it blinds us from seeing all the beauty in the World, which is Life itself.
Sometimes, one just has to sit back and enjoy the simple things in life (like the Roses in our backyards). Why not start by recognizing that we are stronger than we believe ourselves to be? That a rumor doesn’t mean anything until we make it true? That as long as we are alive and willing, we are able to accomplish whatever we put our hearts and minds into?
I love everything educational, inspirational and motivational. I have displayed a few scriptures and quotes around my house to remind and guide me on my life choices.
“Everyday, think as you wake up,
Today I am fortunate to be alive,
I have a precious human life; I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use all my energies to develop myself,
To expand my heart out to others,
To achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others,
I am not going to get angry or think badly about others.
I am going to benefit others as much as I can.” – Dalai Lama XIV
We are worthy of our Creator’s love. We do not need someone to make us feel special – we are special (with or without someone whispering sweet nothings in our ear). We have value. We are good enough. We have worth and we must believe it. We should recognize our mistakes and be accountable for our choices. We must learn to let go when holding on is no longer an option. We must turn our self-pity, self-judgmental and self-doubt into self-love. We are stronger than what we know. We are much more than our words.
» I am a conscious being in a constant state of gratitude.
» I am part of the Universe.
» I am a Child of God.
» I am not alone.
» I AM Worthy.
“If we could spend time counting our blessings, one by one, rather than obsessing on our obstacles, we would realize how blessed we are, truly.” — Joan AMBU
