…as a stepping stone to do much better.
Take some time to be still… and think about how you can fix it, make it right, seek forgiveness (forgive yourself), and then turn it into a learning, strengthening lesson.
Face this and you will be ok.
One bad decision…
One bad thing happening to you…
Should not lead you down a road of (self) destruction… spiraling out of control.
Instead know in your heart and soul… this is a moment to prove to yourself and others (but especially yourself) who you are and who you want to be.
Be a person of character.
Be a person who falls down but gets back up.
Be a person who picks up others.
Be a person others can look up to.
Be a person of integrity.
And know your mistakes always have the potential to make you so much better than you were before.
~~I’m reminded of my character, Christy, in Touchable Love. She made many mistakes, and didn’t believe she deserved to be happy. Christy ran from everything good.
An unexpected job helped her learn to trust herself and face her past.
What can I say, I’m a sucker for the underdog. 😊
You’re never so important that you can’t be knocked down.
It’s not easy to go with the flow when we discover a mountain of rocks in our way… and those rocks seem to jump out of nowhere!
One rock at a time…
Walk around or climb over…
Or maybe even change directions…
Either way, you got this!
Common sense will take you every place you want to go in life.
Or your dreams or goals…
Avoid the talk.
Instead walk the walk.
Sometimes telling people things… their doubts… can drag you down.
Reach out for help.
But don’t depend on others indefinitely.
If you can make changes without help, then do it.
You are in charge of YOUR life.
You are strong.
You are capable.
You might fall down, but get back up.
Keep getting back up.
Keep getting back up.
YOU can change your life.
Make it exactly the way you want it.
It takes a lot of HARD work.
But you will get there.
And you will look back and be thankful for the HARD work.
You will love the hard work.
You will LOVE the hard work.
Your life is yours.
You’re in control.
You and you alone map out your life.
Don’t blame anybody else… this makes you weak.
Blame = weakness.
Taking responsibility = strength.
You are better and stronger than you realize.
Quit one of your goals.
One you have lost interest in.
One you will not achieve.
One you don’t care about anymore.
One you’ve been working on for years with no success.
One that’s been on your list, but you never try.
Let it go.
Shift to something better.
Close that door. Open a different door.
Don’t let an impossible dream drag you down.
Remove the distractions that hold you back.
Remove that burden, that extra weight, that mental block…
So you can be free!!
Free to pursue your truth.
Free to truly succeed.
Free to focus on what you ARE good at.
Free to be real.
Free to be HAPPY!!!
Make decisions based on your truth.
Do what is right for you.
Do what is right for you and your family.
Trust your gut! 😊
It’s easy to take things.
Something insignificant from a store…
A dish from a restaurant…
Somebody else’s written words…
Something accidentally left behind…
“Nobody will know.”
“They should have been smarter or locked it up or kept it safe or…”
“Nobody will care.”
“I deserve it.”
“What’s the big deal?”
It is a big deal. Your character is a big deal.
When you steal, you hurt yourself.
And, if you believe in karma, you’re asking for trouble! 😋
