We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
Commit to doing one thing exceptionally well. Learn to love what you do and people will take notice.
More importantly, you'll be cultivating a mindset that's primed for success. And when the time comes for you to take the leap of faith to follow your passion, you'll be ready. Don’t let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love and most importantly, be kind to others, even if you don’t like them. Sometimes before you can do what you love, you have to first learn to love what you do. What's the difference? Everyone wants to do what they love. To create art, explore new hobbies, or run their own business. But for many, doing those things isn't a realistic way to make a living. Maybe one day, just not now. As a result, many of us commit to being miserable in our current situation because it's not our ideal. Why bother if things aren't perfect today? But that kind of attitude will get you nowhere. But unless you can change those scenarios. Just as negativity begets further negativity, the same applies for opportunity. Be geniuses in what you do. Open your arms to newness. This way the only way you can be ahead of the changes.
“The strongest actions for a woman is to love herself, be herself and shine amongst those who never believed she could.” “A strong woman builds her own world. She is one who is wise enough to know she is confident and strong enough to face all of the stones are thrown at her with a smile “

Be Strong & Courageous…
Hey there, I am glad you made it here to read my today’s blog. This blog post is
for you and for people like you and me; Strong and Courageous. You may be
experiencing pain from break ups, from divorce, or the most painful of all,
losing your child, loosing something you love or your job but remember, the
struggles we’re facing today are developing the courage to let go and strength
we will need for tomorrow.I hope you’ll understand that there are things you don’t want to happen, but you have to accept, and things you don’t want to know, but you have to learn.Those struggles may appear in different forms. In my case, struggles went from mild to severe within noticeably short period of time. You are too strong to live your life hurting. You are too beautiful to let someone’s ugly ways make you insecure of yourself. Never allow detestable people to hurt you.After I gained the courage to let go and move on with my life, I regained my confidence. I loved and gave value to myself and the result fascinated me.You can’t always think that you’re the reason why people choose not to stay in your life. You know, not all people are meant to fit into your life and stay there forever.People come into your life to teach you different valuable lessons. Some come to show you how real love feels like. They bring out the best in you and stay by your side whenever you need them. They help you withstand any difficulty and endure any pain.Others bring out the worst and make parts of you hurt so much that you think you will never be able to heal. These are the ones that come into your life just to teach you how to let go.And whether these people will stay forever in your life or walk away, you keep on living, loving, and learning. You learn that the pain will lessen. You learn that your problems and sorrow may burden you and break you, but you’ll find a way to overcome them.
My dad always said once “ If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you. If you do not make things happen then things will happen to you. A lifetime of experience will offer many lessons and cultivate many skills. Some of them will be explicit, like how to do your laundry, invest your income, and raise your children.Some of them will be more subtle and abstract, but important, nonetheless. Ideas such as how to respond to illness, deal with rejection, and what to do when a relationship isn’t working.One of the most valuable skills that everybody would benefit from learning, should they want to live a fruitful life, is when to move on. Moving on, and thinking towards the future, can be a difficult task for a number of reasons. First, we may be emotionally connected, or even addicted, to that from which we need to move on. Second, it can be hard to strike a balance as to when to let things go, and when to keep pushing forward because we have already invested so much.When we make the mistake of holding on for too long, behavioral economics call this the sunk costs fallacy.
Fortunately for us, the complications of moving on can be minimized by listening to wise people who have had to deal with moving.Inspiring someone to make changes and become “unstuck” so they can move in a new direction in their life is such a rewarding endeavor. Supporting an individual who needs to know someone cares can uplift both individuals to a place of inner satisfaction. As a wholeness coach, helping people see their potential and gain understanding that if they can imagine it, they can do it is the most fulfilling aspect of my life. Watching an individual make positive changes in their life and see the smile spread across their face once they “get it,” does indeed make my heart soar. My books come in this way and I’m sure most authors would attest to this kind of inspiration while writing their works. In fact, I am routinely influenced with divine wisdom every day of my life and cannot imagine life without this guidance.
An inspired life such as this leaves the ego outside of the equation for the most part.It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So, you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.
There are a lot of things that can provide inspiration, seeing other people accomplish great things, seeing other people overcome adversity, hearing inspirational quotes from great people, even the sheer beauty of nature can remind us just how lucky we are to be alive.“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”– Steve Jobs
The one thing I've really learned from running!
You can't rush the miles. No matter how fast I run, 5 miles can't be run in the
first 5 mins. Remember - there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but first we have to get through the tunnel !Genuine people don’t try to make people like them. Genuine people are who they are. They know that some people will like them, and some won’t. And they’re OK with that. It’s not that they don’t care whether or not other people will like them but simply that they’re not going to let that get in the way of doing the right thing. They’re willing to make unpopular decisions and to take unpopular positions if that’s what needs to be done.
Since genuine people aren’t desperate for attention, they don’t try to show off. They know that when they speak in a friendly, confident, and concise manner, people are much more attentive to and interested in what they have to say than if they try to show that they’re important. People catch on to your attitude quickly and are more attracted to the right attitude than what or how many people you know !We’ve all worked with people who constantly hold something back, whether it’s knowledge or resources. They act as if they’re afraid you’ll outshine them if they give you access to everything you need to do your job. Genuine people are unfailingly generous with whom they know, what they know, and the resources they have access to. They want you to do well more than anything else because they’re team players and they’re confident enough to never worry that your success might make them look bad. In fact, they believe that your success is their success.
Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion,
treating people the way you want to be treated & helping those in need.—
been thinking a lot about kindness lately. I think Ellen pretty much sums it up. Good-hearted people always pour their hearts and souls into everything. You can tell by the look in their eyes, their smile, and the good intentions behind their actions. These people are always there for you, willing to give you a hand. When you’re feeling sad, they’re the ones who try to get you to smile. You feel like you can lean on them when times are rough.You might call them “healers”, “friends”, or even “magical”. Good-hearted people are always there to hug you and try to piece you back together after being broken down. Best of all, they feel happy when you succeed and achieve things. They always offer new experiences and help you see life from a different perspective.It’s not hard to feel deeply connected to good-hearted people because they’re just magical. Being around them is amazing. They have the ability to touch your heart with their pure-intentioned actions and selflessness.Good-hearted people have such big hearts that they’re able to share them with the people they love most. They do this mostly through kind acts to make other people happy. There’s nothing more comforting in their world than helping others and making their days a little better.This is just how they are. Their kindness is something that can easily be seen. They’re also very patient when they listen to people. Since they just want to help, they’re not into yelling or pressuring others. On the contrary, they know how to interpret other people’s silences, they respect their time, and serve as a helping hand when needed.“There
is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one’s self, the very meaning of one’s soul.” - Edith Warthon
Good-hearted people have such a strong presence that you can’t help but feel good and calm around them. In addition, they’re usually fond of something they tend to keep secret. That thing is observing the glare in the eyes of those who have established a deep connection with happiness.They’re empathetic and they’ve mastered the art of understanding the pain of others, so much so that they’re able to feel it as if it were their own. They make an effort to understand other people’s scars and wounds and transform them into something beautiful. They try to transform them into something that they could perhaps use as a learning lesson or a beautiful experience.Their secret weapons are love-filled gestures that come from the deepest parts of their hearts. Good-hearted people are always in the mood for radiating positive energy without expecting anything in return. They feel good by making others feel good.If you ever meet someone like this, never let them go. They’re a beautiful treasure that will stay with you for a lifetime ❤️❤️
Walk away from people who put you down!
I saw this picture below from my friend Shalini. Thought I wanted to write about the meaning of the quote ....It’s not a good feeling when someone calls you names or insults you. It can hurt your feelings when someone criticizes you, makes fun of you, or puts you down. You can deal with people that put you down so that they stop doing it and leave you alone. You just have to learn to take care of yourself and know how to address it when it happens.The truth is that many people operate with bad behavior. The reasons for this are many, but include:
• Lack of self-esteem or self-confidence
• Unhappiness with themselves or their lives
• Difficult situations such as financial
duress, job loss, health issues etc
• Jealousy or envy of others
• Difficulty communicating
When someone exhibits destructive, mean or otherwise uncaring behavior, they are usually acting out from something going on with them, not with you. They may say it is about you “Oh, you make me SO mad!” but the reality is that people who manifest these negative behaviors are showing an outward display of inward pain. Our minds and our attention are drawn to the person’s negative behavior, and we keep our minds focused on what they have done (or not done) to, and for, us. The problem with this is that the other person doesn’t change. Your rumination is not going to change their narcissism. Your attempts to say “just the right thing” won’t shift their unhappiness with themselves. So the cycle continues. They act badly, you react and feel badly, and nothing changes.Have a mantra or a calming practice you employ. Your someone is telling you all the things you’ve done wrong, your people who close to you is regaling you with stories about their wonderful new love, your former co-worker is telling you how great the workplace has become since you left choose to breathe, and have a saying or little ditty you enjoy.Sing some lines of a song you like in your head while you are listening with only one ear. Go internal in a positive way to block out what might hurt you.Negative behavior feels like it comes at you. It can seem impenetrable when you are on the receiving end of it. Decide to take your own power back, and be ready the next time someone seems intent on upsetting you somehow.Turn their negative energy into your positive power.
