We have spent many a weary day simply because we persisted in remembering something that was unpleasant. Forget the wrong and it will disturb you no more. Forgive others for what they have done and you will have no unpleasant memories to cloud the sky of your mental world. When people speak unkindly of you, never mind. Let them say what they, like, if they must. Nothing can harm you but your o wrong thinking and living. If people do not treat you right remember they would act differently if they knew better, and you know better than to become offended. So therefore forgive it all and resolve to be happy. Forgive everybody for what is not right and forget everything that is not conducive to the right.
It doesn’t matter that some people are laughing behind your back…glad to see you fail, smiling in your face, while pretending to be your friend. You are not your mistakes, your failures, or your disappointments. Be aware things will happen that you are not prepared for.
Regroup, go back to the drawing board and come back with a different strategy. Every day you have the opportunity to relaunch, revive and to reinvigorate your dream. You are more powerful than you realize! Dig in, challenge yourself and hold the vision. You have GREATNESS within you!
This is my submission to Debbie’s Forgiving Friday series, where she writes about and invite others to share their thoughts on Forgiveness, Self-Love and Personal Growth.
It’s the last Friday of the year! It snowed heavily in my neighbourhood this morning and it was a challenge to roll out of bed because I was a bit melancholy that Christmas came and went without a kiss goodbye to its favourite fan! It disappeared gently into the good night at the stroke of Mid-Night December 25th and now the wait begins. Read more
The best part about life is, our ability to learn & adapt. So, here’s what I have learnt so far (oh yes, I’ve certainly made a lot of mistakes for learning these! Not that I regret them *wink wink*)
Lesson #1. Learn to be happy in what you have. Don’t look for happiness in other people, your career, or in ‘things’ for that matter. Look inside. It’s deep within you. That’s where you’ll find happiness.
Lesson #2. Don’t leave something good, to pursue better.
You might end up losing both. Stay clear about your priorities.
Lesson #3. If it’s making you happy, don’t question it.
Life is short. Make good use of it.
Lesson #4. Be content with yourself. This doesn’t mean you stop trying for that promotion you have been working for, it simply means. .maintain your calm while working for it. Better…
It’s true, Christmas can feel like a lot of work, particularly for mothers. But when you look back on all the Christmases in your life, you’ll find you’ve created family traditions and lasting memories. Those memories, good and bad, are really what help to keep a family together over the long haul. ~Caroline Kennedy
I hope everyone who celebrated had a wonderful Christmas, mine was extra special because I had both of my girls at home for the Holidays, the first in 2 years. We cooked, watched movies, ate, drank and was Merry. As we gathered around the table there was an overwhelming feeling of happiness with a mixture of apprehension that the day would soon be over we’d all be headed our separate ways, I would be back to work and my daughters back to respective schools.
