Sometimes you meet some people and instant dislike happens! Other times you come across a person, especially at work. You get to know each other little by little. Then suddenly you find that they are not the kind and cheerful person you thought they were! You become shocked and upset since you cannot conceive how they changed so abruptly or maybe that is their true nature; their mask has fallen and their truth is revealed finally. It is a disheartening discovery. Now you should all over again begin the introduction in your head by emphasizing that you are meeting the enemy so as to always be on your guard. That is not a healthy situation but you do not have a choice. However, this does not mean that you have to change for the worse to accommodate that terrible colleague. Keep your sunny disposition no matter what and leave antipathetic people to their own devices. To each their own. In this way, you enjoy what makes you happy regardless of whether that person agrees or not.
Negative thoughts suck your soul, drop your spirit, and destroy your energy. They make you old and pessimistic. You see horror and despair everywhere. You stay undecided, expecting the worse, not daring to venture any solution. You have no faith in yourself nor in God. You stay in your corner, worrying, crying and whining like a baby. You prefer to blame everybody for your misfortune instead of taking responsibility for your actions, such as giving some thought before endeavoring any action, taking your time, taking no hasty decisions, counseling with your close friend or trustworthy relative. Never forget that "every cloud has a silver lining".
There is nothing more cowardly than procrastination. You postpone doing something important in your life and just wish it'll be done alone. You are responsible for your own life. Nobody can do your tasks instead of you and nobody can help you out of a bad situation but yourself. So man up! When you take a decision, stick to it despite any deceiving obstacle. When there is a will, there is a way. Rely on God and do your part. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step! Take action. Everything that you’re aiming for will only be possible if you start working and if you start reaching for it. Nothing will happen if you don't even take a step towards your aim. you may say it's so far and very impossible, but everything begins with a single small step.
What you fancy shows who you are! If you like fairy tales, you are a romantic! If you like scientific magazines, you are a geek! You can be both as long as you feel good in your own skin. Having fancies helps you express your thoughts and preferences. You fill your free time with interesting activities such as walking in the park, enjoying the scenery and at the same time writing a poem about it. Thus you combined two fancies at once. This reminds me of Jewel's song "Follow your heart, your intuition". If you do that, you go where you want to go and you do what you feel like doing. When you do what you love, you expand your comfort zone, nurture your playful spirit and feed your creative soul. So have a go at our fancies!
It is a simple word but a choice hard to make. We are creatures of habit. It is so easy to stick to a habit that it becomes painful to change it though that very habit might be bad for us, for instance, hiding in our corner (whether literally or figuratively) whenever we're encountered with something/someone we're not familiar or comfortable with. Try bit by bit to overcome this problem not at once because it'll feel hard and really different and not something you can stick to for very long. First, you have to choose to change something easier, for example, try to converse with a stranger at least once a week. Once you step outside your comfort zone, it'll be easier to be consistent and stick with something for a long time. Our minds tend to adjust over time. So when we gradually adjust to something until it becomes normal to us.
Why do you feel so small? Why do you stay in your corner where everything is familiar? Why do you you go through life as if you are invisible? You are there, you know. You do exist. And you are there for a reason. You can make a difference. So put yourself out there. Only the good things will come out of your daring to live your life and face the world outside. You are a free, intelligent, productive human being. You have your own wishes and dreams. So stop blaming others for not understanding you because it is you who do not meet them half way or do not give them the benefit of the doubt. If you remain as you are, you are more like an an insecure kitten who does not want to quit the shelter of their mother-cat!
Living in the present moment is crucial. The point from the past is to learn lessons and to never repeat them. The future means hopes and dreams. If you live in the past, constantly reliving your past mistakes, and you worry about the future, you do not enjoy your life presently and it passes you by. What's the point of being here, if you are not really here? If your mind is constantly away, you let others benefit from opportunities that come your way, but just your body was there. That's not life, that's suicide. Change your perspective, you will see things with a positive attitude and you will be full with spirit to move forward.
The feeling of being stuck in a situation you don't like but you feel unable to move forward. The past keeps you crippled. It is not right staying in one place. Throwing a pity party every once in a while might be healthy, you are only human. You have a right to feel sorry for yourself. But being a constant whiner is a suicide. You suck every joy of your life. You remain glued to a desolate situation while you can simply decide to man up! Leave the bad situation behind you, learn from it, embrace life. Look for the silver lining! Life is waiting for you to embrace it. Live it fully, don't let it pass you by. There is so much you can do with your life, so much dreams to fulfill, so much projects to make.
Anger. It is that feeling that pushes you forward, makes you unaware sometimes of the length you'll go to in order to express your refusal to accept that someone did sth to you just because s/he wanted to. Some start shouting, others cry for rage, some smash things, others utter all the foul words they know. But the best way to reign anger is to do sth about it: If you asked sb to do an errand for you and they brought it late, don't waste your breath shouting at them, instead give them the silent treatment and next time do it yourself. Take action instead of reacting to a harm already done. Listen to loud music or write your angry thoughts and direct them towards something productive. Life is short. Do not waste any moment on somebody who is not worth your emotions, consideration nor your attention.
Stepping out of the cocoon of the familiar, safe inside setting, such as family, home, desk work to an unfamiliar, risky outside world with all its unpredictability, chaos, adventure is a tough decision to make. It requires a strength of will, determination, self-confidence, motivation, and courage. Fear of the unknown paralyses us and prevents us from facing society with all its judgement and cruelty. Slowly coming from a bad experience frames our mind negatively and instinctively makes us expect the worse. We become unable to see life run smoothly as before. We refuse to accept why other people continue leading their everyday life as usual while we're trapped with invisible chains that prevents us from living a normal life. We fail to see that the only way to get rid of those chains is to communicate our predicament to a close friend or to write a diary. Whatever small step we take will free us from the nightmare we trapped ourselves in. Life is simple when we take it one day at a time.
Ambition is a strong word. Essential for personal growth and contrary to stagnation. It does not suffocate people with depression and negativity. It broadens our horizon and empowers us to explore other areas of life with no limitation or pressure. It is the key to success. With is it we can test ourselves and see what we are really made of and how much challenge we can overcome. By setting goals in front of us, and dreams to follow we can reach the sky. Nothing will stop us from achieving what we want if we have enough will and self-confidence. Life is what we make it.
Hope and dreams are the key to success. Without them one just lives aimlessly. That's not a way of life. Set your goals and make a plan. Try to stick to it no matter what. Do not give up. Perseverance is compulsory. When there is a will, there is a way. Hesitancy is out of the question. There is a big difference between living and surviving. Stop to smell the roses. They will give us a new and sweet flavour of life. Look at the sun, how bright it is, how much hope blossoms from the beautiful landscapes, the serene sound of the flow of rivers and singing of the birds. What a splendid view waterfalls make and what beautiful music the sound of a flowing stream is.It soothes the senses.
That's my first attempt at writing. I love reading ad writing I always had a longing to write I see and read novels and amaze at how much skill writers have. I wanna be like them. But I don't know what to write, a novel or an article I just love writing but I'm through hesitating I'll just go with the flow and write whatever crosses my mind. I like the idea of having a diary. maybe I'll have one. Thus I'll write whatever happened on one day of my life and go from there. Writing and reading go hand in hand. I like this
