Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore.

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love  (via shittyteenblog)

Everything comes to an end, but our life’s are the longest things we will ever experience… so why should we waste them by worrying? We are all human and we know what it’s like to wake up with frizzy hair and morning breath, yet we judge others on the inevitable, things that are completely out of their control, like height, facial features, how much money they have, their weights, skin color, hair color, or even how they talk whether it’s an accent or lisp, etc.… and rather than throwing our lives away by worrying and judging, we can spend it enjoying things. like how pretty the sunset is, or the colors of the flowers in the midst of spring, even animals nurturing each other can be found enjoyable. And if you’d rather spend your time on this earth picking pity little fights with your friends rather than possibly enjoying the last couple of years with a loved one then the one and only experience on this earth will be put to waste and how do you want to say you spent your life? Go for the things you want and live your life to the fullest extent without worrying about being judged or judging.

Day 6 #Acceptance I accept that I’m not perfect or even near perfect. Even if I could be perfect I wouldn’t want to be because there would be nothing to work up to. I love myself for me and if I were perfect I wouldn’t be myself.
