In Every Living Being There Is The Desire For Love


You are worthy of LOVE and AFFECTION, you are never too much and you are always enough,You are beautiful, you are strong, you are worth it.

Countless times, many of us have gone through troubled waters. Most times, how we approach situations in our lives wholly depends on our view of them and our readiness to emulate the mind of God.  Sometimes, most of us have faced rejection and false judgement from people. We have had to deal with people’s opinions about us and how we live our lives. What some of us may have not yet put in mind is that it all comes down to God. God’s opinion about us is what matters the most. From the biggest to the smallest creature there is a desire to love. It’s interesting to think that each living thing out there is looking for love at its core.Sometimes all it takes it to take a step and make affirmations to falsehood or other types of negatives directed at us. You deserve someone who does not only make you feel better, but makes you want to be better. He supports you and your goals. He’d listen to you blabber about your studies like it’s the most interesting topic in the world. When you’re about to give up, he’d be your cheerleader. He would keep you motivated all the way because you are worth dying for, regardless of who you think you are.

There really isn’t much more to say when you wrap it up so neatly. All a person really needs is love, and that’s all they need. It’s simple and a little repetitive, you deserve to be treated like a choice, not an option. You are not someone’s “maybe”. He would treat you like a priority. He would love you consistently. He would always be there especially whenever you need him. He would make an effort to be with you. He would show you that you are his one and only. The best place to practice love is on oneself. How do we expect to give our love to another if we’ve never really learned how to give love to ourselves first? Self-love is one of the most rewarding, fulfilling, and satisfying forms of love there is. Everything we do comes from a place of either fear or love, and often times we choose to approach our own bodies, minds, and spirits out of a place of fear.We must realize that everyone’s definition of beauty on the outside is going to be different, and if we live our lives trying to make ourselves beautiful on the outside we will quickly forget to develop our person on the inside. Not doing this will allow us to turn into someone we are not, someone that only lives to live up to someone else’s standards instead of our own. Being you in all phases of life is the pure definition of being beautiful, so make an effort to make a positive effect on the world daily. Let everyone see your natural beauty, disregard what you look like on the outside and show someone how good of a place the world could be if we could just let the light inside of ourselves shine. You deserve your own dose of magic. You deserve your own fairy tale. You deserve happiness. And above all else, you deserve these because you are worth it and in every living being there is the desire for love.

Friends Are The Family You Choose


What makes friendship so priceless?  It’s been said that the best things in life are free, and true friends are some of the best things in life that money can’t buy.

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship and there comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will. When times get hard and the going seems to get tougher to the point to where you want to give up, do the people around you influence you to give up, or do they influence you to keep going. This also should make us examine how good of a friend we are to those around us. Friends come in all shapes and sizes.  A true friend really gets you.  They like your flaws and all.  They know what to say, and more importantly, when to say nothing at all.  When you flip through the collage of people in your life, you may have some people in your corner that you can count on.

Do we encourage, do we persevere with our loved ones, do we believe in our loved ones and give them hope when they are greatly discouraged. If you can answer yes with confidence to all of those questions you are truly a great friend, and if you couldn’t it doesn’t make you any less of a friend, but it should make you realize certain things you may need to start doing to be more than just a good friend, but instead, a great friend. Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you’re down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend hold your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end.Choose your friends wisely, and that’s one of the best ways to level up in life.  The opposite is also true because friends are the family you choose.

Everyday Gives Us A New Way To Approach Life.


Do you feel like you’re “sleep-walking” through life? Do you wish you had more freedom? Do you wish you had more adventure? Do you wish you had more time? Do you wish you had more love? Making things positive doesn’t mean a sunny outlook; it means making the choice to see problems as opportunities. Every problem and difficult situation is embedded with a solution – the adventure lies in finding the solution because today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can and a strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug. I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in. A positive attitude helps you in every walk of life. This can help you overcome life’s many obstacles with ease. A positive attitude can certainly take you places. Being optimistic about your approach can turn many situations in your favour. Today is a new day. Don’t let your history interfere with your destiny. Let today be the day you stop being a victim of your circumstances and start taking action towards the life you want. You have the power and the time to shape your life. Break free from the poisonous victim mentality and embrace the truth of your greatness. You were not meant for a mundane or mediocre life. Don’t choose your path in life based on the expectations set on you by others, whether its your parents, friends, or society in general.

Today is a new day. It’s a day you have never seen before and will never see again. Stop telling yourself the ‘same crap, different day’ lie. How many days has that lie stolen from you? Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today. Recognize that throughout this beautiful day, you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life into the direction you want it to go. Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.It does not matter how long you are spending on the earth, how much money you have gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive vibration you have radiated in life that matters, because you are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there. When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you. Life is like a game of chess.To win you have to make a move. Knowing which move to make comes with IN-SIGHT and knowledge, and by learning the lessons that are acculated along the way because we become each and every piece within the game called life!

Embrace Your Uniqueness And Make An Impact In Life


Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

no-more-comparisons

There are too many things in this world do not have a perfect or a definite answer. Some answer will unfold naturally as you proceed in life, while some answer will never reveal by itself unless you seek it attentively. We need to always remember that life is like a road trip without a map; as you travel along the highway of life, you stop at different places, veer off down unknown roads, change direction every now and again and sometimes, although you hate to admit it, you get lost. Sadly, there are some of who insist on taking the map with them, making sure that nothing is uncertain, that all roads are clearly mapped out and getting lost is never a possibility. In life, whenever you feel confused, frustrated, lost or do not know what you really want, you can always seek guidance from your heart. The best way to get over your fear is to do what you’re most afraid of. You’ll feel more accomplished, fulfilled, happy, peaceful, and ultimately, more alive. Let your fears fuel your passion instead of allowing them to stunt your progress. If more people allowed their hearts rather than minds to serve as their compass, this whole world would explode with passion and people following their dreams. Leave fear behind and embrace the courage within you! All of us have it, and you are no different. You are capable of accomplishing anything you set your mind to, if you just believe in the power within.

The idea of making an impact in life is nothing new. Doing things that have a profound positive effect on those around us means that we both stand out in people’s minds, and also leave a lasting impression of what is possible with the right actions and decisions. Life is a courageous journey or nothing at all.  We cannot become who we want to be by continuing to do exactly what we’ve been doing.  Choose to listen to your inner voice, not the jumbled opinions of everyone else.  Do what you know in your heart is right for YOU.  It’s your road, and yours alone.  Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.  And be sure to appreciate every day of your life.  Good days give you happiness, bad days give you experience, and the worst days give you the best lessons. Sometimes we don’t notice the things others do for us until they stop doing them.  Don’t be like that.  Be grateful for what you have, who loves you, and who cares for you.  You’ll never know how much they mean to you until the day they’re no longer beside you.  Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you.  Learn to recognize the negative thoughts you have. These are the self-doubts, the criticisms of others, the complaints, the reasons you can’t do something. Then stop yourself when you have these thoughts, and replace them with positive thoughts. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it to live. Instead of just going along in your usual way take a day off from that. And smile towards everyone you meet because if you’re lucky enough to have something that makes you different from everybody else, don’t change.  Uniqueness is priceless.

Go Confidently In The Direction Of Your Dreams


Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. It’s time to start living the life you’ve only imagined. When we are young, dreams shape the world we live in. We imagine what might be and who we might become, and these visions stay with us from the moment we rise to the moment we fall asleep at night.

As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler. In order to live a life in which we are truly satisfied one of the most important things that we can do is to live life how we imagined it to be. This may mean that we aim to work a job or in a career field that we have always wanted to work in, or maybe raise a family even though the circumstances that we may be presently living in wont seem to allow this. We have to be willing to go after our dreams. It is easy to have dreams and aspirations, but you will not truly have anything until you are willing to pursue these with everything that you have inside of you. Challenging as it may be, it’s never too late to recapture the feeling of wonder that accompanies our earliest imaginations. By focusing our energy on finding and pursuing our true purpose on earth, we can begin to live the life we always imagined.

 

The resources we need to turn our dreams into reality are within us, merely waiting for the day when we decide to wake up and claim our birthright. To relentlessly pursue your goals. You will face opposition; not everyone will “get” your idea; the weather can be poor causing you to just “feel moody”… Who knows all the “whys and wherefores” of difficulties we face, but I think it’s important to know that opposition doesn’t necessarily mean you are on the wrong track. Doing so will not always be the easiest thing or the most convenient option for you, and the ones that you love, but it will be well worth the hardships that you encountered in the end when you find yourself living your dreams. As the quote says it is time to start living the life you’ve only imagined, not the life that anyone else has imagined for you, and not the life that you just are happening to live because of your situation and your circumstances. Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. Make time to discover what excites, fascinates, and inspires you. Let these passions, and not your inner voice of logic, guide you on new paths. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined because the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Worry Less So You Can Live More


Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. Over-thinking causes problems that weren’t even there to begin with. We all need to stop thinking so much, just go day by day and be happy with what we got.

LiveMoreWorryLess

Sometimes you just have to stop thinking and just go where your heart takes you. Stop thinking about a million other things that will pass and resolve themselves and enjoy the moment because you will never have the same moment again. Negative thinking is definitely one of the biggest problems a lot of us suffer from. Ironically, the more you try to rationalize it, the more you tend to only think about it and in turn become more negative. Stop thinking about the past, and don’t worry too much about whats going to happen in the future. Your presence is a present, so live for today, and appreciate everyone and everything you have. Stop thinking about what you don’t have, what you wish you had, who walked out of your life, and whatever else that falls in that category. Think about what you have, who you have in your life, and how fortunate you are.

Open the gates and seize the day, for today is the day you start worrying about what everyone else’s thoughts, and live for your own. When we choose to live in the moment, in every moment in our lives we choose to do just that. We wouldn’t be human if we weren’t able to think about our actions before committing to them, but sometimes we tend to over analyze situations. From this day forward make a promise to think less sometimes, and live more all the time. Make it a point daily to commit a random act of charity. If you see an elderly person that needs help, help them. If someone needs to switch lanes in traffic let them over. Just try to be as spontaneous as possible in order to live your life to the fullest. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. If you have good thoughts they’ll shine on your face like sun beams and you will always look lovely.

Nothing Is Impossible With Our God


The fact that with God ‘all things are possible’ is proven by the fact that God created the entire universe out of nothing. There is more than one thing that God cannot do and that is that God cannot lie!

maxresdefault

Do you sometimes find yourself facing a seemingly impossible situation? It might be a relationship that seems to have broken down irretrievably, or an issue to do with health, finances or something else where change seems impossible. With God there is always hope, no matter how bad things look. Nothing is impossible with God. His power makes all things possible. We know that for every effect there has to be a cause but there does not have to be an effect for every cause because God is uncaused. So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable. Impossible only means that you haven’t found the solution yet. In our lives we will have times that will test our faith. We have times that will make us feel that nothing is going right and there seems to be no end in sight. However, things have a way of working out and having faith, belief and a focused positive attitude will allow you to get through those tough times. With God’s help you will get through.

What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are and we would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible. The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible and there is nothing impossible to him who will try. We need to also understand that most of the things worth doing in the world had been declared impossible before they were done. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide a way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. Whatever struggles you are facing at the moment, however difficult life looks, however impossible the situation seems, it is important to remember his love for you and trust that ‘with God all things are possible’.

Be Strong, Believe In Who You Are…


Each person’s success and happiness, both now and in the eternities, depend largely on his or her responses to the difficulties of life. Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved. Be strong, believe in who you are; be strong, believe in what you feel.

perseverance

If God sends us on strong paths, we are provided strong shoes. Going through and overcoming adversity is character building, it is one of the aspects of life that shapes us into the human being we are today, and will be in the future. It provides us with experience, the confidence to overcome, opportunities and a kind of coping mechanism to deal with things that don’t go our way, which in life, is inevitable. Adversity comes from different sources. Trials may come as a consequence of a person’s own pride and disobedience. But sometimes we think holding on makes us strong but sometimes it is letting go. To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.

Build upon strengths, and weaknesses will gradually take care of themselves. When some people face adversity, they complain and become bitter. They ask questions like “Why does this have to happen to me? Why do I have to suffer this now? What have I done to deserve this?” But these questions have the power to dominate their thoughts. Such questions can overtake their vision, absorb their energy, and deprive them of the experiences the Lord wants them to receive. Rather than responding in this way, people should consider asking questions such as, “What am I to do? What am I to learn from this experience? What am I to change? Whom am I to help? How can I remember my many blessings in times of trial?”The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves. We need to remember always that change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.

Worry Is Worthless! God Takes Care of You


Worrying is worthless! You probably know that already, but the question is, have you stopped worrying? What is it that right now you are worrying about? I’m reminding you and me of how useless and worthless it is to worry. So, whatever you are worrying about at this moment is a total waste of time. Casting all your anxieties on God, because he cares for you.

worry woman

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds. There is an underlying assumption by those who worry that they have at least some level of control over their circumstances which, in reality, only God has ultimate control over. There is something inside of them that knows that they are not in control and that they cannot control all that happens in their lives, but they sure want to be able to be in total control. They want to know, fully understand, and control all that is going on, that has gone on, and that will go on. They effectively want to usurp God’s position as sovereign, all-powerful, and all-knowing. It is not that they are seeking to replace God, for even this would worry them. But it is that they are struggling to abandon themselves and those whom they care about to God’s control. God is in control, and He does care.  But those who worry struggle to believe that and appropriate it. Those who worry tend to mistrust God and have an overly-inflated view of their own ability to make their lives what they want them to be.

The promise of God is that He will not allow His children to beg for bread. He will care for our needs and that’s the promise you can claim. To surrender to God does not mean that we submit to fate as if we have no responsibility or choices to make in life. Many times our own difficulties are a result of our own making and irresponsible behavior. Nothing happens to us that is outside of God’s permissive will, and he is totally in control of our days.  And because of who we are, we should not worry. Do you know how much energy it takes to worry?  You are spending lots of emotional and mental energy when you’re in worry mode and has it ever done you one bit of good?  No, of course not.  Worrying is worthless!  That’s a really good reason for any sensible person to just refuse to worry. So we must not worsen matters by not doing what God has already instructed us to do. We are not helpless beings, and we do have a will and a responsibility to act.

The road to freedom from worry is to trust God, to rest in His love, and to truly believe that He is able and that we are not. Will we let God take the controls of our lives today, knowing and believing that He can do it better than we can? If you are a real worrier, you can be sure people know it, because you talk about it, it shows on your face and body language, and it’s not particularly attractive. Remember, worrying is worthless, a total waste of your time, and it indicates you need to stop and check out why your worrying instead of trusting the Sovereign God, who is your Heavenly Father.

 

Being Happy Depends On Your Choice


We all want to be happy. But for many of us, happiness is an elusive, fleeting state that we can capture only for a brief moment, before it floats away like dust in the wind. Being happy depends on your choice. Your circumstances may affect it but still the choice is yours if you let other things affect your happiness.

timemoneyHappiness. It is not measurable, profitable, nor tradable. Yet, above all else in the world, it is what people seek. They want to have happiness, and want to know they have a lot of it. But happiness, like air or water, is a hard thing to grasp in one’s hand. It is intangible. So how does one know if they have it? Is it just a feeling? And if someone does not feel happy, how can they go about achieving that feeling? Yes, Happiness is a choice, we have got the choice on how we want to live our life. There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them.

All seasons are beautiful for the person who carries happiness within. It doesn’t really matter the circumstances in our life, we have still got the choice to live an unhappy life, at the mercy of our emotions, events etc., which could be quite miserable sometimes, or we can choose to live a happy life, be a happy person, whatever the circumstances are, the choice is ours. Happiness is not measured by material wealth. A new car or television, a new house does not equate to joyful feelings. They are status symbols, surely, and ones that make others assume a person is happy, but they do not guarantee a happy life. The clichéd phrase, “money can’t buy happiness,” is heard often… because it is true. People who have wealth can be unhappy, just as the poor can be living on cloud nine. Possessions can be gained and lost, and with that comes fear. And fear rarely leads to happiness.

Happiness lies in living a plain life within one’s own means. If you follow the dictum ‘cut you coat according to your cloth’ and live within your own means, you will not need to trouble your head to get a loan of money or to pay back loan. Besides, you will not be a parasite or a dependant on others and your free mind will bring you immense happiness. Happiness lies not only in the life of plain living but also in the life of high thinking. So, a saying goes on ‘plain living and high thinking’. If you live a life of high thinking the trifling worldly troubles will not disturb your mind. The basic thing is that everyone wants happiness, no one wants suffering. And happiness mainly comes from our own attitude, rather than from external factors. If your own mental attitude is correct, even if you remain in a hostile atmosphere, you feel happy. Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response. Be happy. It’s one way of being wise because happiness may come and go like the seasons but in the end, every moment that you have that is filled with happiness will be well worth the sad or unnerving ones that you have had to endure.
