Let go. Why do you cling to pain? There is nothing you can do about the wrongs of yesterday. It is not yours to judge. Why hold on to the very thing which keeps you from hope and love?— Leo Buscaglia

The human mind is your most powerful possession. It’s also one of the most difficult things to control. It takes dedication, practice, and commitment to harness the mind, to control your feelings and your thoughts. But once you do, life becomes so much better, it may still be difficult because you can’t control the minds of people around you or certain situations in life but you can live a better life when you learn to control your minds to a point where you become more conscious of your thoughts.

In Life, Everyone You Meet Has an Impact

I believe that everything, the good and the bad, happens for a reason and is part of something bigger – purpose with a capital P. I also believe we each have an individual purpose, lowercase p, that fits in with the grander plan, and that part of the reason we are there is to find it, because everyone matters; each person’s contribution, large or small, has an impact.

When Resilience Becomes A Way of Life

My scars remind me that I did indeed survive my deepest wounds. That in itself is an accomplishment. And they bring to mind something else, too. They remind me that the damage life has inflicted on me has, in many places, left me stronger and more resilient. What hurt me in the past has actually made me better equipped to face the present.

Resilience!! It’s a word that has become synonymous with strength, power and overcoming. It is often used to refer to how well one comes out on the other side after dealing with a difficult or sometimes challenging ordeal. Whether you come out whole or come out totally in pieces. Did you handle the pressure that tried to crush you or totally lost your cool and blew it all to hell? Being resilient is more than just having a positive outlook on life’s challenges, it’s also about how well you cope with those challenges and the stress that they bring.

New love makes you forget, it heals old wounds, it makes you believe that the world belongs to just two of you. YNG

Relationships are great when they work and terrible when they fall to pieces.  Most relationships fall apart because of what is expected from the other person you choose to share your life with.  The great expectation is that the euphoria of new love will last forever. The start of any relationship is the best of a relationship. New love is just that, new.  It’s exciting, it’s exhilarating, it makes your heart race, and you get butterflies in the pit of your stomach and all those wonderful things because life is amazing!!

 During a new courtship, new love is addictive because all desires are heightened, our sexual desire,  our desire to communicate and strengthen that bond with that person, we want them to know as much about us, how much we love them, how attracted we are to them. New love is filled with words of adoration, messages of love and the thought of not being able to live without that other person is so intense, that nothing else matters. Not distance, not friends….. You want to spend every waking moment with that person and for long-distance romance we have the internet helping to keep that love alive.

Why Self-Forgiveness is So Important For You

When you internally forgive, it is like letting go of that heaviness that had you bound for some time, your feet a free to move, the pain is leaving, the hurt is decapitating and what remains is what each new day brings. The chance to start over again.
― YNG

We often look at forgiveness as something we do for others, we forgive, forget and move on. But forgiveness is not always about forgiving someone who has hurt you or done you wrong, it’s about burying the past and redeeming grace. Your Grace! Forgiveness is also a gift you give yourself. It’s about admitting to yourself that your peace is worth more than the punishment you are inflicting on yourself by not forgiving yourself.

Embracing Your Humanity

One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say, “I love you”, “I’m sorry”, “I appreciate you”, “I’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it…cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.
