Destination addiction…

Beware of
destination addiction: The idea that happiness is in the next place, the next job, or even with the next partner. Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are.

The more you can become aware and a part of the present time, the happier you can be living in the “NOW”.

Destination addiction is thinking that the next destination, partner, or job will be somehow better than the present is.

Beware that now is all there really is and all there will ever be.

Someday is more of an illusion than reality, so if you are ever going to be happy, you’d better focus on being happy in the NOW.

Strength…

Strength…

Anyone can give up and

run away.  That’s easy.

But staying, facing your

problems and making a

commitment to work

through them, that’s

STRENGTH

~AbsolutelyPositive

It is so much easier to walk away

than to stay and work through things.

 

Nobody even talks any more.

 

They are too busy texting to

the latest, greatest, hottest new hit.

 

Even when you are with them

they are preoccupied with these other things.

 

Too busy to really be with you.

 

Too scared to make a commitment.

No strength, just existing.

 

Hoping to move on to someone

who can make them feel better

because they don’t know how to

love themselves

or you.

 

Maybe it’s time

to show some strength –

face your problems and stand up

in life.

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.

Life is short…

Life is short…

 

Laugh often.

Give big hugs.

Play your favorite songs loud.

Make phone calls to loved ones.

Breathe deep.

Give up on the haters.

Visit friends and family that are far away.

Practice peace.

See the beauty in all situations.

Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Dream big and make it happen.

Love like crazy.

Don’t give up…

Don’t give up…


Dear Human

You can’t give up.

You can’t give up on LOVE because

others are hateful.  You can’t give up on

believing in one another because

you’ve been let down.  You can’t give up

on hope because pain came your way.

You can’t give up on kindness because

some people are cruel.  You can’t give up

on peace because war surrounds you.

You can’t give up on dreams because

they don’t always come true.  Life isn’t

about everything being in order.  Life

isn’t about bliss.  Life is about

learning to live, love, hope, and

believe in the midst of perfect

imperfection.  Life is messy,

complicated, confusing and beautiful

all at the same time.  Life is the single

best gift you have ever been given.

You can’t give up.

~Sheri S Bessi

It’s pretty easy to get caught up in the day dream of having a “perfect life.”

Always hoping for MORE.

More love, more peace.

Always wanting more money, and more friends.

A bigger house and a different car to drive.

Deeper feeling relationships.  The kind they show on television all the time.

Those perfect sit com type of life styles.

Those never ending get away’s to tropical islands, and buying brand new cars.

Those romantic romance novels that every one reads because they don’t like their own life all that much.

Let’s admit – that isn’t real life.

Real life can contain a little bit of all of those things, but there are also a lot of not so glamorous things mixed in also.

Things like pulling weeds to keep your garden tidy.

Doing the dishes and sweeping the floor to keep your house clean.

Making the bed every day.

These are not as glamorous at all.

But they are a part of what makes life worth living.

They are parts of life that we can all be grateful for.

Imagine not having a house with a floor to sweep.

Not even having a bed to make.

That really changes they way you look at things,

and maybe reminds us to be grateful for what we have instead of

spending our lives wishing for someone else’s  life.

 

Making peace with what we have as we look for even more.

Making the best of the life we have right now, as we live it.

Enjoying our life right now with all of the complicated imperfections of the moment.

you have to be willing
