I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
If you want to be healthy.. you have to BE HEALTHY. If you want to be rich, you have to do the work.. you have to find your niche, you have to take a chance. If you want a fabulous relationship.. you have to let go of the old ones. You can't change other people.. and you can't change your life without... CHANGING YOUR LIFE.
It has been proven that our thoughts create chemical reactions in our brain. If we think thoughts that stress us out our glands secrete cortisol... also known as the "fight or flight" hormone. If we think sad, depressing thoughts that stress us out our hormone levels spike and we physically feel all of the symptoms that correlate.
The interesting thing that I have found is that men have no problem using the excuse that "That's how things were back then". It was normal for women to be abused and have absolutely no power to fight back and everyone was ok with that, but when women say that's why they didn't come forward they get called liars and laughed at.
I don't know where he learned this, but I want to make sure that my son doesn't pick up this habit. I want my son to apologize for things he's really sorry for, not just pay lip service. I want my son to feel comfortable in his own skin and with his own actions. I want my son to look forward to people's news. I want "Guess what?" to be a question of excitement not dread. It's important to teach empathy and awareness.. it's something else to create anxiety and guilt.. or a fear of being wrong just for being oneself.
Yet in real life it's the same. We grow up on these movies. Being taught that we have the power to create the life we want, yet we are always turning to someone else. We need someone to give us a job. We need someone to love us, to marry us. We need someone or something to create our worth and our destiny. Can't we, as a society, finally realize that if we want the life we desire... we need to decide.. and do it ourselves.
"Regrets... I've had a few, but then again, too few to mention..." We all love the old blues tune, but how many of us think about regrets... I don't mean past ones, I mean the ones that we are creating right now.
When was the last time that you did something outside of your comfort zone? Most of us live our lives by routine, which isn't entirely bad. There is a lot to be said for security and piece of mind, but there is also more to life.
I don't know how many people who live miserable lives, complaining all the time because they are doing what is expected, or because it would be too difficult to change.
"You're right, anything can happen, and if you're going to imagine things happening. Imagine good things."
