You are not a helpless victim to the circumstances of your life. You are the creator of your own experience. Yes, it is crap and unfortunate that sometimes bad things happen to the best of people. Life can be unfair, unkind and unjust. Sometimes it’s the only way we are to learn what we need to learn too.
Being stuck in a victim mentality does not nurture your creative and innate ability to move onward and upward…. when you’re ready to do so.
We need to take full responsibility for our life and what we really want. We’ve got to get back up or stand up – to take positive steps to heal and grow.
Circumstances change all the time. People do too. As you know, life doesn’t always go to plan. But when we don’t get what we want, maybe something even better lies ahead.
Have you noticed that the strongest and most accomplished people are not those who always get their way or win? They are the ones who refuse to give up even after they fall, fail or lose. You might think you’re not good enough, but you’ll surprise yourself if you keep trying. We are not defined by our failures – we are created by them. For me, each time I’m faced with a major challenge, I reach deep down withIN me and seize a strength, belief, will and determination to keep stepping forward. To keep looking up. Just placing one foot in front of the other – never taking my eyes off what I really want.
What defines us is how well we rise after falling. At the end of the day, to succeed in life, all we have to do is get up one more time than we fall down. As the saying goes: what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger! I guess that’s why I surprise myself so much, and all this time I thought it was the fact that I’m Italian, Taurean and female ?.
YES YOU CAN!
The most unhappiest people are those who care too much about what everyone else thinks – those who let everyone else drown out their own inner voice and truth. Stand strong beside yourself. There’s great freedom in leaving others to their own opinions. Own your voice. Own your truth. Own your path in life. You are a magnificent unique gift to the world. SHINE bright and proud!
Just because you liked something at one point in time in your life doesn’t mean you’re required to always like it. You can change your mind. We are constantly changing, growing, learning and evolving. You don’t have to pretend to like something as an act of loyalty, based on who you once were. To be sincerely loyal and true to yourself is to allow yourself the freedom to change and grow. The only thing you ever are for sure is ‘growing’, and that means you are not stagnant, stuck or imprisoned by old ways of thinking – unless you choose it. To live a caged or charged life? It’s your choice.
