“Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.”
- David Deida
I no longer let people walk all over me, hurt me or bring me down. I’m not fooled by fakeness or sucked in by lies.
I realize that “most” people are only out for themselves but also that beautiful, genuine people do exist. I stay away from drama.
I don’t compare myself to anyone else but who I was yesterday.
If I’m not happy with something then I change it, if I can’t change it I learn to accept it & don’t waste time worrying about it.
I am learning to tolerate others more & have patience.
I don’t need to please everybody, I have learnt to say “no”.
I don’t need to be accepted by everyone. Not everyone will like me & that is just fine.
I try not to judge others & accept that others will always judge me.
I am learning to stop procrastinating in fear of making the wrong decision or not doing something right or perfect.
I make mistakes, I am not perfect & don’t pretend to be.
People hurt me & I hurt others even though it is not my intention.
I forgive myself for my mistakes & move on… I have no regrets, just lessons learnt.
I forgive those who have hurt me & let it go…holding onto hurt & anger will not help.
I am grateful for what I do have & have learnt to appreciate even the little things - things I used to take for granted.
I always try to see the positive side of every situation & make the most of every experience.
This is my precious life & I am making it the best life possible.
I am not in search for perfection, I am only trying to be better than I was.
I am in a race against my previous self.
