Giving compliments…

Giving compliments…

People wonder why I give so many 

compliments out to strangers.

I’m not being fake and I’m not looking

for people to like me.

But, if I pass someone and I like

something, I say it.

“Love those shoes!” or

“Great hair!” or

“Wow your eyes are beautiful!” … why?

Because life is hard and this world

can be a shitty place… and people are mean.

You never know how much those few

words can mean to someone,

you never know what hell they may

be going through; and when you

put positively out there in the universe

YOU yourself become a happier person.

It’s hard to be nice and miserable yourself.

It’ll reflect from the outside in.

I’m telling you random compliment

giving will change your life;

and maybe someone else’s too.

~Jordan Sarah Weatherhead

Kelly’s Treehouse

This may also be known as part of the practice of

random acts of kindness.

 

Doing and saying nice things to people actually brings

more nice things and more kindness to yourself.

 

It’s pretty hard to smile at someone without feeling the joy

that comes from smiling,

especially when you receive a smile back.

 

And how hard is it to actually give someone else a compliment?

Pretty easy.

And the more you practice something, the easier it becomes.

 

Whenever you practice something long enough, it becomes second nature to you.

So the more you compliment people instead of wasting your time

complaining abut your life,

the better and more positive your life will become.

 

Just be sure that you are being authentic.

 

No one likes a fake compliment.

 

Be sincere,

find something that you really like about someone before you start talking to them about it.

Mold the clay of your mind

and be more of the person you want to become.

 

Allow yourself to be a happy person by thinking happy thoughts,

including complimenting yourself for doing such a good job, and smiling about it.

 

Increase your well being and share it with those around you.

Training your vibration into that upward place.

 

Writing positive affirmations

and then repeating them over and over until they are a

comfortable part of you life.

 

Inspiring and guiding you into more and more of a positive world

were compliments abound for everyone.

 

You could not be more deserving

as you allow the receptive mode to be a part of your every day life

where compliments are an important part of the evolution

and you are the realizer of everything you become.

Don’t quit…

Don’t quit…

“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will;

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill;

When the funds are low and the debts are high;

And you want to smile but you have to sigh.

When all is pressing you down a bit-

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Success is failure turned inside out;

The silver tint on the clouds of doubt;

And you can never tell how close you are;

It may be near when it seems far.

So stick to the fight when you’re  hardest hit-

It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit.”

~John Greenleaf Whittier

Strive toward happiness…

Strive toward happiness… 

 

You get angry.

You get depressed.

You worry.

But never let these feelings

consume your life.

You owe it to yourself

not to burden

your soul

with sorrows.

You have to

leave the

past behind and

strive toward

Happiness.

DODINSKY @power of speech

 

*

 

Do your best to never look or go backwards .

Only go forward.

 

No one promised that you would have a perfect life.

 

We must strive to let go of the sorrow, the what if’s

and make better choices for the future.

 

And while looking toward the better choices,

we realize that all of our other choices are what have led us to the exact point

that we are at NOW.

 

In other words, they were all necessary to bring us

to the point of being the person we are today.

 

Nothing was an accident.

Everything was perfect.

 

Nothing was out of place.

 

Only our “interpretation” of the past gives us sorrow.

 

And the realization of all this ALLOWS us to fully live in the NOW

where we can enjoy our present life

with out regrets or any

further sorrows.

 

We OWE it to ourselves

to strive for happiness and not burden ourselves

with any more junk from the past.

Loving yourself…

Loving yourself…


“I want you to embark on the

truth of loving yourself because

when you love yourself and

when you appreciate yourself,

you will make healthy changes

in your life for healthy reasons.

~Steve Maraboli

ThePurpleFlower.com

We all make choices and changes every day.

They made be subtle and very slight changes and choices,

but nothing stays the same in a time based universe.

 

And the healthier your life is, the healthier your choices will be.

 

Have you ever just thought of one of your old friends that you used to be really close to,

when you suddenly realized that you currently have nothing in common?

 

So what happened?

Why did you once have a lot in common

and now you no longer know them at all?

 

Time changes things and people change every day.

 

People either grow closer together or grow farther apart depending on their willingness to participate in each other’s lives.

As some people get healthier and learn to love themselves more,

and other’s don’t, a separation occurs.

 

Healthy, loving people just don’t mix well with unhealthy, unloving people.

They just don’t have anything in common.

 

The more separation that occurs, the more these people actually become opposites.

 

Like attracts like

and opposites oppose each other.

 

This happens often in relationships.

One becomes more healthy and loving that the other and a separation occurs naturally.

 

The disagreements begin and if the couple doesn’t consciously move back toward each other,

a permanent separation will likely happen soon.

 

It takes a lot of conscious effort to keep a friendship or relationship growing strong,

especially in such a “throw away” conditional world as we live in today.

 

But the effort is worth it

if you can both grow into more

appreciative, healthy individuals who

desire truth in a loving, healthy life.

Tell yourself…

Tell yourself…


Everything
will work out.

Things will get better.

You are important.

You are worthy
of great things.

You are lovable.

The time is now.

This too, shall pass.

You can be who you
really are.

The best
is yet to come.

You are strong.

You can do this.

 

*

 

Positive affirmations are very helpful,

especially in such a negative world.

 

The more we practice anything the easier it becomes.

 

So the more we practice positive thinking, the more it becomes a part of our lives.

 

And the more positive our whole life becomes.

 

Knowing that everything is working out for the best is huge in anyone’s life.

 

It gives us hope when we feel like things are going wrong

or even when we think we might be hitting rock bottom.

 

Believing that we are strong and capable gives us the strength to keep going

when we are just not feeling it at all.

 

Knowing that things will get better in time because you are important.

 

*      *     *

 

Enjoy every day of your life and allow yourself to expand

along the way without judgement.

 

Being receptive to what life is bringing you

because you are truly worthy,

and living your life is

your own personal way of expressing

that worthiness.

 

You got this!

Let’s play a game…

Let’s play a game…

 


I heard you’re a player.

So let’s play a game.

Let’s sweet talk.

Let’s play fight.

Let’s talk 24/7.

Let’s tell each other good morning and good night every day.

Let’s take walks together.

Let’s give each other nicknames.

Let’s hang out with each other’s friends.

Let’s go on dates.

Let’s talk on the phone all night long.

Let’s hold each other.

Let’s kiss and hug.

And whoever falls in love first?

Loses.

~The Minds Journal

 

*

This is really something to think about.

 

If you fall in love and the other person is just playing a game,

you will loose eventually.

 

But if you just LOVE and experience life without any expectations, you can never loose.

 

You just enjoy each other and take one day at a time.

Experiencing and sharing one thing after another.

 

But if you expect anything from someone else,

you are looking for heartache.

 

Because they will disappoint you time after time.

 

Maybe not meaning to let you down,

but just because they are looking at life through their own, self centered eyes.

 

Each person has their own perspective and their own agenda

and at times it just won’t match up with your agenda.

 

So play the game of LOVE to win.

 

Love unconditionally

with no expectations

and you will WIN every time.

Satisfied where you are…

Satisfied where you are…


You can be fully satisfied with where you are,

understanding that you’re eternally evolving.

when you get into that place of feeling

appreciation of where you are and of who you

are, and appreciation of what you are, and you 

accept that you are a never-ending, always

unfolding Being, then you can stand in that 

delicate balance of being optimistic about what

is to come, without being unhappy about

where you stand.  Find a way of eagerly

anticipating future changes, while at the same 

time you are in love and satisfied with who,

what, where and how you be.

~Abraham-Hicks

 

*

 

I love the feeling of appreciation and allowing.

 

There is nothing better than feeling the sensation

of being SATISFIED.

 

Like when you have just eaten a healthy, fantastic meal of your choosing.

Like that first hot cup of delicious coffee in the morning,

flavored with your favorite creamer.

 

Or seeing that special someone smile at you from across the room,

knowing that soon you would be close together,

sharing your thoughts of joyous living.

 

Or buying yourself flowers and smelling their pungent fragrance

while admiring their luminous beauty.

 

In other words, finding something to appreciate now in this very moment.

 

And the more you practice staying in the NOW,

present moment, the easier it will be to maintain

the satisfaction you seek and the

satisfaction you were born to live.

What you think about yourself…

What you think about yourself…


People know your name, not your story.

They’ve heard what you’ve done, but not

what you’ve been trough.  So take their

opinions of you with a grain of salt.  In the

end.  It’s not what others think.  It’s what

you think about yourself that counts.

Sometimes you have to do exactly what’s

best for you and your life, not what’s

best for everyone else.

~HigherPerspective

 

 

*

Do what’s best for yourself

and live your best life every day.

No one else knows your story and what you’ve been through,

so don’t spend your time worrying about someone else.

 

Be kind to others and they will be kind to you,

and if they aren’t, don’t blame yourself.

Live your own life and be the best you can be.

What is…

What is…

 

Many around you want to point out

“reality” to you.  they say, “Face the

facts.  Look at what-is.”  And we say to

you, if you are able to see only what -is

then, by Law of Attraction, you will

create only more of what-is… You must

be able to put your thoughts beyond

what-is in order to attract something

different or something more.

~Abraham-Hicks

 

*

 

Putting your thoughts beyond what-is seems like playing make believe.

 

And in fact – it is.

You’ve hear people say things like – fake it till you make it.

Dream it – do it.

 

And many other slogans that are not quite the reality they are living.

 

But if you think about it, and you want to change the life you have, what would you do differently?

You would have to change some things wouldn’t you?

 

Since you actually attract more of what you talk about, and what you complain about every day.

It might be wise to stop complaining.

But it is not that easy if that is your current :

  • Practice.
  • Your current belief.
  • The main topics of your friends group.
  • The way all your friends express themselves.
  • The easy way of venting.
  • Justifying your mistakes.
  • Blaming others.

 

But is this the way of feeling harmony within yourself?

How many people actually practice

feeling peace and harmony in their life?

 

Nobody I know.

At least not consistently.

 

So you may want to hold your intentions to yourself

rather than cluttering your environment with other people’s thoughts and concerns.

 

Practice seeing and having the life you want

until you come to the place where you actually believe it and have it.

 

Think beyond

what-is in order to attract something

different or something more.
