The past is over & done. We cannot change that now. Yet we can change our thoughts about the past. How foolish for us to punish ourselves in the present moment because someone hurt us in the long ago past.
I hope you wake up early up enough in the morning to put on your favorite outfit and make your favorite breakfast. I hope you find your skin clear and hair healthy. I hope you’re content with the way your body looks. I hope you find happiness in small things today. I hope that, even with your ups and downs, you are content with yourself.
Your ambition should be to get as much life out of living as you possibly can – as much enjoyment, as much interest, as much experience, as much understanding. And not to simply be what is generally called a “success”.
If you feel that something is overwhelming you, take the time to break it up into smaller steps. We have two feet for a reason; to put one foot in front of the other. One at a time. Don’t take everything on all at once, breathe, and simply take it step by step.
