Do Not Be Hard On Yourself

We do our best as we can to reach our goal, but often we feel like we still have a long way to go; we find ourselves doubting how far we can go. 

We dwell on negative thoughts and keep blaming ourselves for making mistakes or making poor decisions about something. 

We tend to forget that everyone makes mistakes, nobody perfect; we make mistakes, and we have learned from them. 

When others make mistakes, we forgive them, but we are so hard on ourselves when we make mistakes. 

If we don't love ourselves, no one will love us. We should be kind to ourselves and be proud of every step we take toward reaching our goal. 

"Don't be too hard on yourself. There are plenty of people willing to do that for you. Love yourself and be proud of everything you do. Even mistakes mean you are trying."

I am Thankful For Everything In My Life

When you wake up in the morning, you may think your life is so dull, or you may feel discouraged because things don't go your way. You may even think sometimes you barely get through the day.

Because of obstacles, you have faced draining your energy, and you can't find any reason that will make you want to jump out of bed.

Maybe you need to change your perspectives; changing perspectives is like changing the window through which you view the world, and it is not something that you can change overnight, but it doesn't mean you can't do it. 

To change your perspective, you need to change the way you see things. You need to change your thoughts, your attitude. What if you wake up every morning with the feeling of appreciation, gratitude for the things you have, and be thankful for being alive.

Be grateful for having a family that loves you, a few good friends, a job, a roof over your head, and food on the table while there are many people somewhere else in the world who are still fighting to survive. They don't have a place to live, food to eat, some people don't even know how to manage to live each day because they have nowhere to go. Some people have to escape from being shot!

Thinking about those struggling people may help you feel better about your life. And I am sure those unfortunate people they want to live the life you are living now.

Life is too short to think about things that make you feel bad, so change your thoughts, attitude toward things, if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. 

When you change the way you see the world, and you try to search only for the goodness in life, then your life transforms into a fantastic adventure.

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get the chance, take it, if it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

-Dr. Seuss
