Your journey…

Your journey…

 

Today I send encouragement

and prayers to all of you

who are on your own journeys,

struggling to find your own

happiness, struggling to

determine the terms

of your own life.

Be strong.

Don’t you dare give up on yourself.

Fight your way to the light.

~Elizabeth Gilbert

Celebrate yourself…

Celebrate!!!


When nobody else

celebrates you, learn

to celebrate yourself.

When nobody else

compliments you, then

compliment yourself.

It’s not up to other people

to keep you encouraged.

It’s up to you.

Encouragement should

come from the inside.

~Joel Osteen

There are those times when we all feel the need for some encouragement.

And at those dark times in our life, we need to have a back up plan to help us with whatever it is that we are going through.

Other people will fail us.

They are just not always going to be there for us.

And if we think they will – we are experiencing disillusion.

 

Of coarse there are those people who are good intentioned, who have our backs most of the time.

 

But there are times when we really, really feel like we need someone, and they are busy somewhere else.

They are busy with their own life, following their own dreams.

Doing their own thing, with someone else, somewhere else.

 

So at those dark times, if we have a “plan B” to engage us, we will be in a lot better place.

 

What can we possibly do to implement an alternative plan to help us and encourage us in these times of need?

The best thing to do is to plan ahead.

 

By now, we should be aware that these dark times will come.

They are a part of our reality, just like the bright sunny days are.

Because that is real life.

 

And in this real life

we all have contrast so that we can define our choices

and have new experiences and events in our life.

 

Things we ordinarily wouldn’t evoke without the differentiation of life throwing it in our face.

 

But there it is – and we have to decide what we are going to do with it.

 

We could curl up and hide in our warm bed all day.

Or we could have a few things lined up to help us feel good enough to get up, and then take the next step.

We could try:

  • Listening to some music.
  • Taking a nice warm shower or bath.
  • Getting something to eat.
  • Reading a good book.
  • Having a cup of coffee.
  • Calling a friend.
  • Going for a walk.
  • Taking prescribed medications.
  • Taking herbal enhancements.
  • Using essential oils.

 

And sometimes you just have to dig really deep into yourself.

Finding your reason for living.

Remembering those who love you and those that you love.

Knowing that there are ups and downs in life and knowing

what you need to do to pick yourself back up.

 

Being your own champion.

 

Learning to celebrate yourself.

Learning to compliment yourself.

 

And feeling full of encouragement

from the inside out.

Patience…

Patience…


I no longer have patience for certain

things, not because I’ve become arrogant,

but simply because I reached a point in my

life where I do not want to waste more

time with what displeased me or hurts me.  I

have no patience for cynicism, excessive

criticism and demands of any nature.  I lost

the will to please those who do not like

me, to love those who do not love me and

to smile at those who do not want to smile 

at me.  I no longer spend a single minute

on those who lie or want to manipulate.  I

decided not to coexist anymore with

pretense, hypocricy, dishonesty and cheap

praise.  I do not tolerate selective erudition

nor academic arrogance.  I do not adjust

either to popular gossiping.  I hate conflict

and comparisons.  I believe in a world of

opposites and that’s why I avoid people

with rigid and inflexible personalities.  In

friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and

betrayal.  I do not get along with those who

do not know how to give a compliment or

a word of encouragement.  Exaggerations

bore me and I have difficulty accepting

those who do not like animals.  And on top

of everything I have no patience for anyone

who does not deserve my patience.

~Meryl Streep
