Trust Yourself and Follow Your Heart

Making mistakes is inevitable in everyone's life.
We all make mistakes, and we all go through things that we wish we didn't have to go through, because of bad choices we have made.
Mistakes aren't bad at all, unless we continue to make the same mistake over and over again.
Don't waste your life aiming to be perfect when you can aim to be the best person you can be as yourself.
When we aim for perfectionism, we aim for a distorted view of life, that we will probably obtain physically, but not spiritually, or inside of ourselves.
Take the time today to really make your life representative of you in all of its aspects, today.
Don't be afraid to make mistakes, take risks, and follow your heart in everything that you do.
You don't hear your heart speak for no reason, listen closely; let it be your guide.
Make mistakes, take chances, be silly, be imperfect, trust yourself and follow your heart.

Quotes of the Day

Since everything is a reflection of our minds, everything can be changed by our minds.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

~Albert Einstein

You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

~Sri Ram

Life is what You Make it - Make it Something

Life is strange, sometimes very dark, and very uncertain.
Some think of life as passion, and some think of life as what a man is willing to give his or her thoughts to.
Some call life a continual cycle of new surprises, while some say that life is one thing after another, as it were only a series of events.

One thing that we may all conclude about life is that it is definitely what you make it.

You will always have a choice in life, and from these choices you will have laid out the path you traveled, whether it is one that you had to beat down and create for yourself, or whether it is a road that you traveled along with everyone else who wasn't really too much interested in making their life their own.

Make out of life whatever it is that you desire to make out of it, just be sure to make something.

Lessons from the five people you meet in Heaven

"There are five people you meet in heaven," the Blue Man suddenly said. "Each of us was in your life for a reason. You many not have known the reason at the time, and that is what heaven is for. For understanding your life on earth."

"People think of heaven as a paradise garden, a place where they can float on clouds and laze in rivers and mountains. But scenery without solace is meaningless.
This is the greatest gift God can give you: to understand what happened in your life. to have it explained. it is the peace you have been searching for."

"...there are no random acts. that we are all connected. That you can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind."

"...fairness," he said, "does not govern life and death. if it did, no good person would ever die."

"Strangers," the Blue Man said, "are just family you have yet to come to know."

"Dying? not the end of everything. we think it is. but what happens on earth is only the beginning.

"sacrifice is a part of life. it is supposed to be. it's not something to regret. it's something to aspire to. little sacrifices. big sacrifices. a mother works so her son can go to school. a daughter moves home to take care of her sick father.

"sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it. you're just passing it on to someone else."

"holding anger is poison. it eats you from the inside. we think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. but hatred is a curved blade. and the harm we do, we do to ourselves."

"love, like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with a soaking joy. but sometimes, under the angry heat of life, love dries on the surface and must nourish from below, tending to its roots, keeping itself alive."

"lost love is still love, eddie. it takes a different form, that's all. you can't see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. but when those senses weaken, another heightens. memory. memory becomes your partner. you nurture it. you hold it. you dance with it."

"life has to end," she said. "love doesnt."

~Mitch Albom

Have Only Positive Expectations.

Remember that in life things happen for reasons out of your control.
Instead of getting down when things don't go right in your life, you have to remember that the only way to truly thrive in life is to have only positive expectations.

We all desire to be happy, and at some points life will seem unfair, but our greatness is built up more and more when we are able to keep hoping, even when everyone else seems to have a problem with your continued hope.

There are always going to be situations in life that we won't be able to control.
Instead of being still and worrying, be confident in the fact that you are a child of God, and if you rest in his promises by continuing to be faithful, there is no miracle in your life that you need that can't happen.
Just keep hoping, keep walking and stepping out on your undeniable faith.

My Children

To my children, I love you so,

you are so special, I hope you know.

With every day, that passes by,

you’re more the twinkle, in my eye.

So loving, so giving, a heart of gold,

always my babies, even when I am old.

Your love shines through, for all to see,

I feel so proud that you are a part of me.

Faith is Knowing ...

Being faithful is necessary to live your life to the fullest of its limits.
So many of us have so much greatness inside of us that we haven't tapped because we refuse to let go of the limits that our minds place on our lives, instead of listening to our hearts which will tell us that there are no limits in life.

Until you can truly start utilising faith in your life, you will never be where you truly desire to be.
The people who are most successful aren't always the people with the most resources, or the most talents.
The people who are most successful in terms of materials, love, and healthy relationships, are those who are able to use their faith when there is not anything else to stand on.

You can either live your life in fear, or you can live your life in faith.
You can either choose to walk through life, slowly, or fly through it by being faithful.
When you have come to the edge of all light that you know and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: there will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.

Respect People's Feelings

Learning how to respect everyone is one of the most vital of lessons that we can all learn. Think before you say something, some people just need people to listen and understand where they are coming from before they are preached at.

Be there when someone asks you to be. Even when people make a situation seem unimportant, when a person asks you to be somewhere, they are asking you to be there because they truly want you there.

Just honor people in the same way that you want to feel honored. Though everyone has different standards and beliefs, we should often put ourselves in the shoes of others in situations so that we can best try to gather the ways that they may be feeling possibly.

Just because something doesn't mean that much to you, or just because it will have little to no impact on your life, doesn't mean that the same mutual feelings will be shared by everyone else you encounter.

Respect people's feelings. Even if it doesn't mean anything to you, it could mean everything to them.

Choose Your Words Wisely

Let Go & Let God

A lot of times we allow life and its stressors to take us to points in which we just shut down, lose hope, and lose faith, instead of allowing ourselves to continue in the pace, and in the direction that God wants to take us.

The reality in each situation that we face is that God's wisdom is always there for us to feed on, even in times we feel alone, lost, and misguided. When you just allow yourself to let go of the wheel, and trust that God is going to take control of the spiritual vehicle you are driving, then supernatural things will start to happen in your life.

Many don't realize the power of making the decision of whether to truly believe, and to not worry, not fret, and live a life full of God's guidance instead of their own. Be committed to the belief that God will take care of situations that you simply can't, be consistent with this belief, and God will consistently work inside of you.

I Understand because I Love

Each one of us has lived through some devastation, some loneliness, some weather superstorm or spiritual superstorm, when we look at each other we must say, I understand.
I understand how you feel because I have been there myself.
We must support each other and empathize with each other because each of us is more alike than we are unalike.
~ Maya Angelou

Life's Simple Rules

There are many things that we should try to make a part of our daily routine, and way of living, that of course, we wont always be able to do, but we have to make sure that we at least try.

We should always be truthful; because when we are truthful we will never have to worry about covering up or getting caught in a lie.

We should always aim to be kind, because if we want to be treated with kindness and dignity in our own lives, we have to be willing to give it out just the same.

Try new things, so that you may be able to learn more and more about yourself as each day passes, only then will you be on an adventure to becoming the best you.

Most of all, we have to be thankful.

God honors those who are grateful, and those who are thankful also boost their emotional, spiritual, and physical beings, when they continue to consistently give thanks, as it helps to keep you in a positive state of mind.

Always tell the truth, use kind words, keep your promises, giggle and laugh, stay happy and be positive, love one another, always be grateful, forgiveness is mandatory, give thanks for everything, try new things, say please and thank you, smile.

Think Positively

Just because something isn't happening for you right now doesn't mean that it will never happen.

When your life isn't happening the way that you want it to exactly, don't let the negative events that are happening distract you from the fact that you have greatness inside of you, and from the fact that just because there is uncertainty in the moment that you won't survive.

You don't have to have complete certainty in your life in order to get to where you need to be. As a matter of fact continue to dream even more, and continue to try and you can be certain that your efforts, your undying and consistent efforts, will eventually get you to where you want to be.

Not everyone can deal with adversity their lives, but those who are able to overcome their adversity, are those who are able to live in life as champions, don't just survive life, they live it!

Think positively, and step towards you dreams by taking massive steps towards them.
