Day 4: Embrace where you are in life

Friday, November 30, 2012

Everyday we wake up waiting for something. We wait for our coffee, we wait for the light to turn green, we wait for future special events…no matter what it is we are usually waiting for it and at times we get impatient. 

Many of us lack patience with life, with people and with ourselves. We try to hurry things along and when we have something specific on our mind we want it now. Sometimes we push for answers to our problems before the time is right not realizing that our pace of life is under control. We ARE exactly where we’re supposed to be and we need to learn to surrender our will to life’s greater plan. 

Our lives are supposed to unfold just like a rose does. Each petal slowly unravels itself, bit by bit until it blooms into a beautiful flower. If we hurried the process of the blooming stage we would destroy the bud along with the beauty that comes within. Learn to patiently wait for your life to unfold because if you start to rush the process along you will miss the lovely stages in between. 

Instead of wishing for time to move faster, embrace the current stage you are in. Difficult times last until you have learned what you need to know in order to get through to the next step in life. After you reach the destination you have been wishing and hoping for, a new journey will begin and there will be more lessons for you to learn.

Day 3: We all grow up differently

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

People have different morals, values, perspectives, and wherever you go you will come into contact with a negative person, a person who doesn't like you, a person who doesn't value your opinion or all of the above.

Differences lead to conflict. When conflict arises in our lives we become like wild animals just to defend ourselves, we forget about logic and tend to lash out on each other without thinking about our actions or words.

We are not wild animals. We are Human. As humans we were born with the ability to intelligently control our reactions in any given situation. With intelligence comes control and knowledge leading us to have the ability to logically react instead of attacking people with our hurtful motions.

Negative people affect us when we react because our inner peace is disturbed. If our inner peace is disturbed pain can enter our soul. When pain enters our soul we fight back and that fight might lead to a sense of satisfaction for awhile. But, that satisfaction can take a wild turn after you walk away from battle. Instead of feeling satisfied you might feel guilty to the point where you no longer feel like you won the battle.

Win or lose, anger will always be the wild beast in the room and if it is fed with negativity it will grow angrier and angrier and continue to trigger more anger. Nothing good will ever come out of this angry wild beast. Forget about the beast and be logical. Fighting back with the angry wild beast is a complete waste of your time and energy. But if you do find yourself entering battle, in the end you will probably feel the burden of exhaustion and guilt rather then satisfaction and eventually realize you could have invested your time and energy into something positive instead.

Day 2: The priorities we set in life describe our character.

Monday, November 26, 2012

The older we get the more challenges we face. The busier we are the faster life goes, and as we pass through life we go through different stages. Every new stage is part of the unknown, we learn from personal experience, we make mistakes, and circumstances have the ability to make or break us. Sometimes we look back at the priorities we set for ourselves and realize we were completely blinded by the things in life that are worthless.

Life continuously changes. Our minds change, our perspectives change, our opinions change and when we realize what the most important things in our life are, it is easier to redirect our attitudes and find happiness. 

Mastering our priorities can be challenging especially if we enjoy doing so many things and we want it all on one plate. But, once we discover what we truly need the most- it’s easier to focus and value all the things in our life that matter the most.

Day 1: A weak person is the person, whom cannot forgive.

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Forgive those who have hurt you or done you wrong. When forgiving don’t worry if the person doesn't understand where you are coming from, it’s your job to release your soul from being weighed down with the burden of hatred or anger. Holding hatred in your heart will only weigh down your soul and impact your life negativley. When you forgive do not set your expectations too high in hopes that the person will change or give you an apology in return. Pour out pure genuine love and release the person who did you wrong and in return you will receive peace inside your mind and happiness within your soul.
