Phenomenal Friday-Accept The Things You Cannot Change & Change The Ones You Can


I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
~ Neil Gaiman

Congratulations! Whatever trouble you’ve faced this year, whether you felt bombarded by your financial, family or work obligations you’ve made it through. You have triumphed over everything and anything that may have left you feeling powerless to bring some change to your life or powerless to move forward with whatever goals you had planned at the beginning of the year. We often try to change situations beyond our control while shelving the ones that are within our control to change, insanely frustrating ourselves. So as you begin a new year you can now face all those challenges with a new heart and a clear mind because you now have 365 days to do it. 365 days to rekindle that spark that was dimmed while you were being bombarded by life.

As the end of 2018 approaches, I’m looking forward to 2019. I’m looking forward to setting a few new goals for myself, rekindling the ones that were shelved and almost forgotten. I’m open and receptive to the magic, the miracles but most of all the possibilities that will come with this New Year. The challenges will also be welcomed and I am expecting a few of those but this early in the game I’ve already conditioned myself to accept those I cannot change, redirect the ones I can and recognise the differences in those obstacles.

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.

Chasing Rainbows


“If you chase anything in life chase the things that get you excited about living. Chase the things that give you hope, happiness and a glimpse of a better life. Chase the things that make you want to be a better person. Chase the things that inspire you to think, create and live joyfully. Chase the things that reinforce in your soul that you can make a difference. Chase the things that make you want to transform your heart from selfish to selfless. When you chase that kind of storm you are chasing rainbows.”
~Shannon L. Alder

Fortune Awaits You!


No one has failed as long as he can begin again. So start now to do the things you feel you have it in you to do. Ask permission of no man. Your belief that you can do the thing gives you thought-force their power. Fortune waits upon you. Seize her boldly, hold her and she is yours. She belongs rightfully to you. The men who have made their mark in this world all had one trait in common — they believed in themselves. So what do you want most from life? Whatever it is, you can have it — if you can believe in it — if you can see in it in your mind’s eye as yours. You must be able to hold it in your thought, visualize it, see yourself having it. You must make your model clearcut and distinct.
