Day 82 / 100 Days to More ~

Whenever you find yourself drowning in self-hate, you have to remind yourself that you weren’t born feeling this way. That at some point in your journey, some person or experience sent you the message that there was something wrong with who you are, and you internalized those messages and took them on as your truth. But that hate isn’t yours to carry, and those judgments aren’t about you. And in the same way that you learned to think badly of yourself, you can learn to think new, self-loving and accepting thoughts. You can learn to challenge those beliefs, take away their power, and reclaim your own. It won’t be easy, and it won’t happen overnight. But it is possible. And it starts when you decide that there has to be more to life than this pain you feel. It starts when you decide that you deserve to discover it. 

If you find yourself sharing your gift with people that do not seem to want it, don’t continue to beat your head up against the wall. Walk away. Life is too short to convince people to be aware of who you are and the value that you bring. Love yourself enough to remove yourself from any situation where you are constantly making someone a priority who has made you an option.

Action: Do you love yourself?

Do something about your life now. You know you are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Don’t just think about it, look at it, and complain about it to whoever will listen. Stop conning yourself into being a volunteer victim, or telling the same old story. You are better than that.  It’s time to stand up for yourself and your dream. This is the one and only life that you have. Don’t waste it watching someone’s life – on tv, in a movie, a series or reality show. Take your power back and make a move. Live your life on your terms, and create something new in your life.

Our deepest fear is we are powerful beyond measure and it is our light, not our darkness that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?” Who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine.

Action: Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you. Love yourself! Forgive yourself! Accept yourself! You are YOU and that’s the beginning and the end… no apologies, no regrets.

Every time it rains, it stops raining. Every time you get hurt, you heal. After darkness there is always light – you are reminded of this every morning, but still you often forget, and instead choose to believe that the night will last forever. It won’t. Nothing lasts forever. So if things are good right now, enjoy it. It won’t last forever. If things are bad, don’t worry because it won’t last forever either. Just because life isn’t easy at the moment, doesn’t mean you can’t laugh. Just because something is bothering you, doesn’t mean you can’t smile. Every moment gives you a new beginning and a new ending. You get a second chance, every second. You just have to take it and make the best of it.

We work hard to discard the parts of our lives that were painful, difficult, or sad. But just as we can’t rip chapters out of a book and expect the story to still make sense, we cannot rip past chapters out of our lives and expect our lives to still make sense. Keep every chapter of your life intact, and keep on turning the pages one at a time. Sooner or later you’ll get to a page that brings it all together, and you’ll suddenly understand why every page and chapter before it was needed.

Action:   Do you accept yourself?

People may criticize you, or talk about you in front of you and behind your back. But it’s okay. Your agenda and what you are trying to accomplish with your life never has and never will be between you and others. Do not sweat their small talk. Small minds produce small talk and do not let that throw you off your path.

You deserve to have peace of mind. Watch how dramatically your life will change for the better once you get this burden off your back. The air you breathe will become fresh and invigorating. You will feel an infusion of exuberance, energy and love for life. With this stifling, suffocating person out of your life, get ready to live again and be the person that you’ve always wanted to be. Live life on your own terms. Control your own destiny.

You must firmly, absolutely and ruthlessly protect your safety and sanity. Misery loves good company, so if you are surrounded with drama, gossip and fools you may want to consider that you are presently at risk of becoming one of them. The real zombie-apocalypse is the pandemic of drama and mediocrity. Troublemakers will infect you with the malady of their madness. And especially, if your positivity immune system is low, any exposure to a person afflicted with negativity can poison your life.

Action:   Are you putting on your oxygen mask?

Don’t waste a minute dealing with a toxic, negative, energy-draining person. Some people are wired for negativity. They love being argumentative, combative and abusive. Run for your life as quickly as possible. Life is too short to deal with these emotional vampires. They feed off of stressing you out, raising heck and creating drama. The toxic energy will turn your hair gray overnight, cause you to gain weight and rob you of your health. Don’t waste valuable time trying to change them. Cut off all communication. Don’t take their calls. You have heard all the lies before. They will not change. They don’t choose to change. It is who they have decided to be. Your life is worth it.

People. This is true… You really are the company you keep! Research shows that we adopt many behaviors from our peers. It’s just basic human nature. We naturally want people to like us, so we unconsciously take on their behaviors, habits, and mannerisms. If you hang out with positive, accomplished people, they will have a positive influence on you. If you hang out with burnouts, you’ll probably end up being the same. This is for both friends and family. The people around us set the standards for our behavior, values, ethics, and morals, and we fall in line. Positive people – Hang out with more. Negative people – Remove yourself.

Action:   Who are the people you’re surrounded by?

Everyone wants to get to the top of the mountain first and shout, “Look at me! Look at me!” But the truth is, all your happiness and growth occur while you’re climbing, not while you’re sitting at the top. Enjoy the journey by paying attention to each step. Don’t rush through your life and miss it. Forget where everyone else is in relation to you. This isn’t a race. You get there a little at a time, not all at once.

Don’t live in Groundhog Day. Don’t do the same routine, become complacent and stay in a comfort zone. Strive to improve and try different things. Be a spark that ignites your life. You won’t learn and grow until you experience uncomfortable times or new things. It’s never too late to be happy. All you have to do is make a change…change your number, change your e-mail, change you circle of friends, but most importantly, change your attitude. Peace comes from within…delete anything or anybody that does not enhance your happiness…why not start today?

Action:  If you’re meant to do something, you’ll end up doing it someday. You may take a while to get there, to reach your destination but eventually if it’s meant to be yours, destiny will eventually catch up with you.
