Life is full of surprises and different events. A lot of controllable ones and very few controllable. Something happens that tend to change our look on life and the things around us, sometimes its the stories we hear, book we read or movies we watch. It takes us on a journey of rediscovery and total recheck of our lives, what we are doing that isn’t right and what better way to make right our wrongs.
We’ve all made mistakes. We’ve all done things we regret. Or we haven’t done things and we regret not acting. We’ve all failed to step up, or step in, or show support, or lend an ear or shoulder..
Maybe you feel you’ve moved past it. Maybe you feel the other person has moved past it, too, no matter how much time has passed, it still colors every subsequent interaction. Say you’re sorry. Don’t go I’m sorry with plenty explanations, just apologize and mean it. Take that bold step and do what is right. Make things right with everyone cause life is too short.
Everyone loves to be appreciated, even God smiles when we say thank you for gifts he has given. So how is it a crime if we also want a little appreciation now and then. Look around you, identify those who have gone out of their way to make you happy.
And show some kind of appreciation, a thank you very much would go a long way. So stop making excuses, let down your ego and over bossy attitude and appreciate the people who have gone out of their way for you.
Our failures, our mistakes and our weaknesses are usually at the forefront of our minds. It’s natural and normal to want to improve in the things we do not do well, but our energy would be better spent focusing on the things we do well.
Don’t let what you can’t do hold you back from doing what you can do. In other words set your sail by your strengths.
Embrace your passion and allow your strengths to grow. Your confidence in your abilities will naturally grow as well. Remember stay true to yourself at all times, challenge yourself and show love to everyone. A simple smile to anyone you come across would go a long way, considering how tough the world is right now.
Lastly start from today to make your happiness your number one priority. Do things that make you happy. Surround yourself with positivity and let go of all the negative thoughts and energy.
