There are many things in life you can get by with. You can get by with bad taste in food or bad taste in music, but when you have bad taste in people, well, "getting by" may be all you ever do. So many out there don't understand their worth or how valuable each moment is on Earth. They don't know what it means to chase a dream, and not because there circumstances inhibit them from succeeding, but because they choose to settle at the bottom. They choose to live a "meh" life by there everyday decisions. It can be a vicious cycle. Guess what? You still have time. You can still start your change today - everyone is capable of that dream that floats in your head. It's not unobtainable, it's not stupid or unrealistic, but I'd sure like my way with the person that ever made you feel such dismay. Some simple guidelines to remember:
YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE everything that we put into our bodies is absorbed, to be used again but as fuel. When you put toxins into your body, that is also the outward. If you are eating healthy, drinking water, sleeping, and being conscious of what you consume, you will notice a drastic difference in everything you do.
FEED YOUR SOUL this life was never designed to be easy. In fact, we need pain, we need suffering - has anyone ever heard of a "good cry," when your soul is full with emotions and experiences, you can begin to open your mind to a much larger picture. Our body and minds are so connected - your own ability is limitless.
PROTECT YOUR MIND it's so easy for our thoughts to get off track from the positive. At the times when you are surrounded with negative people and negative answers, the flavors of those people spills over into your own life. It's important to have compassion and empathy, but it's necessary to also be able to put your own success and happiness into priority. You cannot pour from an empty cup.
PRAY PRAY PRAY you may not be the religious type, I was not for a long time, but when you put your faith into a higher power and trust the universe and it's timing, worry begins to wash away, the stress of our lives fades into the background, and you body, mind, and soul become in sync.
Try these things I encourage you... What's the worse that could happen? It takes discipline as well. You cannot tally your short term accomplishments and call it a day's work, it's a lifestyle change, it's a mental change. It's a change that never stops, it's constant growth. When endless growth is your mantra, now you may know what it's like to live.
