Our past doesn’t define who we are

Our past doesn’t define who we are, because we are not our past, but we are what we choose to be at this very moment. Somehow we have accepted the concept that our past define who we are, but the truth is that our past cannot define us, but we define ourselves through our behaviours and actions of our present.

 

"Do not give your past the power to define who you are." 

 

Our past doesn’t define us, because the past is gone. The only thing that is here is our present, and what we have chosen to be now is what really define us. In every sunrise, each new day, at any time, we have the opportunity to decide who we are going to be. If you let your past situations define you, if you let others define you, if your let your past behaviours, thoughts and actions define you, if you let external circumstances and things out of your control define you, you will become their slave, but if you decide to be the best version of yourself right here, right now, regardless your past and the person you used to be, then you will become free from any attachment with your old self, having the possibility to be your true self.

The problem is when we fail to be the person we really are by the thoughts and beliefs we have put in our minds about who we are, condemning ourselves to be the person who we are not, for the rest of our lives. There is no greater agony than the one you suffer when you start to believe that you are the person that deep inside your heart you know you are not, repressing and hiding your full potential.

 

 

 

“My past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me; it has only strengthened me.” – Steve Maraboli

 

 

 

But the worst issue of all is when people start to believe in the person you are not, because once they accept that person as your true self, they will categorize and define you, and the concept they create in their minds about you rarely changes, what makes everything more difficult for you. That is why the process to change yourself for a better you is not easy, because you must walk the path alone. You will have to face your own misconceptions about yourself, you will have to forgive yourself, forget others opinions about you, and then you will have to accept yourself as you really are and act upon it. The important thing is to believe in yourself, because you create your own destiny and not others, therefore, their opinions about you are absolutely useless.

We all have done and said things that we regret, but what is the point of regretting the person we used to be if that won’t change anything from our past? But what we can change is our present. The key is to embrace the person we used to be, because in a certain way that person shaped us, and released our true self. Our past has defined us, because in the way we acted, but now we define ourselves through our present actions and behaviours, the question is: Are we going to keep letting our past to define us by acting as in our past or are we going to redefine ourselves and act according to our true self?

 

 

 

 “Success in any endeavour depends on the degree to which it is an expression of your true self.” – Ralph Marston

 

 

 

We are not our past, we are not our past decisions, we are not our mistakes, we are not our past behaviours, but we are what we choose to be right now, and that is all that matters. The consequences of our past actions cannot be avoided, but we can avoid being the person we are not. We grow, we change, we evolve, and in that way we discover and create our true self, and that is success.

 

 

 

Nobody defines who we are, not even our past nor our old self, but we define ourselves. In this present moment we have the opportunity to decide and express our true self and release the greatness within us. Forgive yourself, accept your true self, love yourself, become the best version of yourself and change your life!

Take the First Step

In order to reach our destination, we must begin the journey by taking the first step. Any victory depends on that first step. It is the first action, the first move, the first try, what can lead us to the place where we want to get. That first step makes everything possible and our following actions make it all come true.

 "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." - Lao Tzu

 

Let’s analyse this: Everyone wants to win the jackpot, but how many of us actually goes and buy the ticket? The truth is that only a few of us do that, but why? The reason is simple: Our thoughts and beliefs creates boundaries between our dreams and our reality. We dream but believe they are impossible or too difficult to become a reality, so we give up even before trying.

If you believe that the chances of winning are almost zero it is very likely that you are not going to buy the ticket, so you are not even going to try, or you will try, and if you don’t win, you will use that as a way to prove that you were right about that winning was impossible, and you will finally give up. You can see here that the first step is crucial as it determines everything.

 

 

 

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” – Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

 

But why the first step is so crucial? How is it possible that it can determine everything? Simple. There are two different outcomes that makes the first step so vital: If we decide to not take that first step, we decide to lose by default. But if we take that first step, it means that we are in the correct way to make our dreams become a reality. If we continue to move forward, step by step, not giving up, overcoming adversity, with perseverance, commitment and faith, it is likely that we reach the desired destination.

Therefore, the first step will be to buy the ticket. What I mean here is that we have to believe in our dreams and go out and make them happen. In order to make your dreams and goals become a reality, you will have to take the first action that will get you closer to the place where you want to be. The first step will determine whether your dream will remain a dream or if it will become true.

 

 

 

“Take the first step, and your mind will mobilize all its forces to your aid. But the first essential is that you begin. Once the battle is startled, all that is within and without you will come to your assistance.” – Robert Collier

 

 

 

No dream will become a reality if we do not take actions. It is beautiful to dream, but what is hard is to take actions to make them a reality. You are not going to win the jackpot if you don’t buy the ticket, that is to say, you are not going to get to the place where you want to be, or get what you want to have if you don’t take the first step. It is our decision to act what creates our destiny and it is our inaction what leaves everything to chance.

If you want to be a doctor, an engineer, a lawyer, a graphic designer, or whatever you want to be, you will have to take the first step and enrol in the university. If you want to learn a new language, you will have to take the first step and look for a course in your city or online. If you want to lose weight you will have to take the first step and make the decision to change your diet. If you hate your job and you want another, you will have to take the first step and find another one. If you want to be a professional athlete, you will have to go and train. If you want to quit smoking, you will have to decide to smoke less cigarettes a day or not buy any more cigarettes. There is always a first step that makes what we wish and dream more real.

 

 

 

 “The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one.” – Mark Twain

 

 

 

It is the first step what get us closer to our dream, and it is our perseverance and commitment to make it happen what makes it all possible. Every single person who has been successful at doing or getting something has once decided to take the first step and then work until they succeeded.  So, what is your dream? What do you want to do? Who do you want to be? What do you want to get? Where do you want to get? If you know the answers to those questions it means that the moment to start is right now. The key is to do step by step what we should do in order to achieve what we want. We have to make the decision to take the first step and start changing our lives.

 

 

My question now is: Have you taken the first step? If you have done it, congratulations! You are one step closer to your goal, keep moving and don’t give up, and if you haven’t done it yet, go ahead and fearlessly take the first step

Do You Really Believe In Your Dreams?

Do you really believe in your dreams? Because dreaming is not enough, in order to make your dreams come true, you must believe in them with all your heart. If you truly believe in your dreams, there is nothing that can stop you from making them become a reality.

 

 "Imagine with all your mind, believe with all your heart, achieve with all your might." #believe

 

We all have dreams, but only few of us are able to turn them into a reality, and why this happens? Well, the reasons are varied, but one of the main reasons is because we don’t really believe in our dreams, within ourselves, in that place we do not know, where our beliefs are kept, we hold the belief that our dreams are impossible or difficult to come true, and those beliefs actually sabotage our dreams. No matter what we do, we continue to fail in the attempt to make them a reality, because somehow we know they are impossible, and that belief creates our reality.

Believing is one of the main tools we have to create the life we want and if we believe in something as impossible, that belief will help create the fact that our reality is not a place where dreams are possible and our dreams will remain dreams until the end of our days on this earth, without the possibility to actually live the life we have always dreamed of.

 

 

 

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

 

 

 

To a greater or lesser extent we are all dreamers, but because of the limitations we all have in our mind because of our fears imposed by the outside world, only few of us have the possibility to live the life of our dreams, and that’s because those people have not only dreamed, but also believed, not only believed but also they have done everything they could to turn their dreams into a reality. For those people nothing is impossible, they dreamed and they believed with all their might even when nobody believed in them, those people are unstoppable dream hunters, and they never stopped until they succeeded.

Everyone can dream but not everyone can truly believe, and it doesn’t matter how much you dream and how many dreams you have, if you don’t believe in them, if you don’t believe they are possible, they never will be, because nobody is going to try to make something impossible into possible, for instance, you are not going to jump from a building expecting to fly when you know deep inside your heart that flying is impossible, you are not even going to try, you dream of flying, but you know it’s impossible, so you will do nothing, end of story.

 

 

 

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” – Anatole France

 

 

 

Believing makes everything possible, because it actually changes your mental programming which has been programmed with a very narrow perspective, and by changing your beliefs, you change your whole life. When you actually start believing in your dreams, you broaden your perspective and what was once impossible for you, it is now possible, and so, your dreams start to feel more real.

So, do you really believe in your dreams? Try to be honest with yourself – Close your eyes for a second and think about your dream, can you see it? Well, now try to see yourself in your dream, visualize it; make it real, how does it look like? How does it feel? It feels great, isn’t it? Well, now look around you, and try to look yourself at the mirror, can you imagine that person you are seeing capable of achieving anything? Do you believe in that person? Yes? And so do you believe in your dream? Do you believe it’s possible? So what are you waiting for? Go out and make it happen!

 

 

 

Dreams are possible for those who dare to believe they can come true. Believe that what you want is possible, and it will! Dream, Believe, Achieve.

Take Full Responsibility For Your Life

We are all responsible for our own life, but we act as if someone else has control of our lives. The truth is most of the things that happen to us is for our actions or inactions, whatever we decide to do or not to do creates our reality. In order to live the life we want we must take full responsibility for our own life, doing everything we can to create what we would like to experience.

 

"Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else." -  Les Brown #takefullresponsibility

 

It is not an external factor that limits us from achieving what we would like to achieve – it is us. We limit ourselves with our own beliefs, with our daily thoughts, with the words we speak and with our behaviors and actions. We are constantly creating our future even if we are not aware of it. Everything we do and everything we cease to do determines our destiny.

The problem is that it’s easier to blame our past, our parents, our friends, our boss, our colleagues, our job, the time, the weather, the society, and the whole world for the life we have, because that way we do not feel responsible for our miserable life – we sit in our comfy chair with a cup of coffee and we put ourselves in the role where we always give our best performance – The victim role.

 

 

 

“The moment you accept responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you gain the power to changeanything in your life.” – Hal Elrod

 

 

 

And so we start blaming everyone and everything in our life, making them responsible for our failure. It sounds so convincing that we even start believing ourselves, and one day the victim role becomes part of us, and so we spend our entire life living as if we were victims of this evil and unjust world. And why do we do that? Because it’s easier to blame others and do nothing, than taking full responsibility for our life, doing everything we can, taking risk and accepting challenges to change our life circumstances.

When we take full responsibility for our life we blame only one person for being guilty of our failure – and that person is always us. The bad thing is that is always difficult and harmful for our ego to admit that we are responsible for most of the unpleasant situations that happened in our life – It is not your job responsible for your miserable life, you are responsible for not looking something better, it is not your teacher responsible for your failure, you are responsible for not having studied enough, it is not your family responsible for your lack of success, you are responsible for not pursuing your dreams. Can you see it? Most of the time we are responsible for our own misery, but it is always easier to make others responsible for it.

 

 

 

“The victim mindset dilutes the human potential. By not accepting personal responsibility for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them.” – Steve Maraboli

 

 

 

The good thing is when you take full responsibility for your life, you allow yourself to have control to change any unpleasant situation of your life by creating another different outcome – for instance when you have decided to stop smoking and now your health has increased, or when you have decided to leave the job that you hate to make your dreams a reality and now you live a happier life, or when you have decided to leave the toxic relationship in which you were in and now you have finally found peace. Can you see it? You have taken full responsibility for your life, and you made the right actions to create a better outcome.

We face difficulties in our lives where we have to deal with awful circumstances, but it depends on us if we are going to remain as a victim of our life circumstances, blaming life for being so unfair, condemning ourselves to a life of suffering, or if we are going to take full responsibility for our lives, doing everything we can to turn the negative into positive, creating a better future for ourselves.

 

 

 

“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

 

 

 

Think about these questions: Is there something you are doing that you could do better to increase the probabilities to have the desired outcome? Is there something you are doing that you shouldn’t be doing to have the outcome you want? Is there something you are not doing that you should be doing?

 

 

The life you want is possible, the question is: Are you doing what you should be doing in order to get it? Take full responsibility for your life and live the life you have always wanted!

Are your fears holding you back?

If you find yourself feeling miserable, making excuses for not having done the things you always wanted to do, it’s probably because you have allowed your fears to control your mind, and when you do that you let your fears to control your entire life.

 

"A head full of fears has no space for dreams."

 

Fears are powerful, they can either trigger the greatness inside of you what will make you create the life of your dreams, or they can destroy your spirit and make your life a nightmare. Fears are part of life, there is no way we can avoid them, they exist in every culture and in every place of this world, to a greater or lesser extent they will always be present in the lives of human beings, the kind of impact they will have on us will depend on how well we deal with them.

Fears can hold you back, or can push your forward, what makes the difference between them is whether you choose to control your fears and use them as motivation to become better and better, or use them as a cage where you lock yourself in for the rest of your life. The second choice is always easier because you give your fears the power to control you, while you keep staying in your cage, feeling safe, as you don’t take any risks there, but the first choice is going to give you what your soul yearns for, because your soul knows who you are, and you are not your fears, you are better than that.

 

 

 

 

 

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

 

 

If you don’t take risks in your life because of your fears you will only risk one thing: the possibility of having the life of your dreams. If you risk nothing, then your risk everything, because you make your life a fortune wheel and you leave everything to chance, and it is in that moment where you give to your fears all the power they need to control your life, and everything you ever wanted, every dream, every goal disappears in the blackness of your fears. If you let them to control you, they will take you all the possibilities you have, to move forward in the direction of your dreams, and you will be stuck in a place of sadness, frustration, anger, disappointment and hopelessness for the rest of your days.

So if you haven’t moved forward in your life, if you haven’t taken any risk for a while, if you haven’t tried anything new, if you haven’t done what you love for a long time, if you haven’t been truly happy enjoying your life to the fullest, if you have been doing only the things you are supposed to do is because you have allowed you fears to control your life, you have no power at all right now, and nothing will change until you realize what is going on. You are where you are now, doing what you are doing because you wanted that way, we cannot condemn anyone for being guilty of your failure, and it is you, and only you, who has let fears to seize you.

 

 

 

 

“Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.” – Dorothy Thompson

 

 

 

 

Despite this, there is good news, you can reverse the situation, and you can still have the life you ever wanted and be happy. To do this, you must stop believing the story you fears have told you, because they always tell you what is going to be wrong instead of telling you what is going to be right if you follow your heart. The problem is they don’t think positively because somehow they want to protect you from any adversity, but what they don’t know is that making you their prisoner only puts you in a place of vulnerability where you are exposed to any adversity. So the best thing you can do is not believing in your fears anymore knowing that what they say is what can go wrong but you know that everything can go great if you choose to follow you heart, and you will prove them wrong.

Everything you ever wanted, every dream, every goal, every idea is possible, they truly exist somewhere outside your fears. If you want to be happy, if you truly want to enjoy your life, you must silence your fears, that way you avoid giving them the power to create your future. Don’t let them to stop you, rather use them as a motivation to demonstrate that they were wrong.

 

 

Your life is like a notebook, if you don’t like what you see, turn the page, take your favorite crayons and make a new drawing! You can create anything you want, if you don’t let your fears blind you. Keep moving, keep dreaming and never stop!

Why Do We Fall?

We fall because there is something there we are supposed to find, otherwise we wouldn’t have fallen. Sometimes we lack something in our lives we don’t even know we are missing, we realize that when we fall. It is in that place of darkness and suffering where we find the light we were looking for, it is in that place where we find ourselves.

 

It's not how many times you fall that matters, it's how many times you get back up."

 

Falling is part of life, because it is not something you can avoid, because the only way you can avoid falling is by doing nothing and being no one. So falling isn’t as bad as it seems, it is actually the opposite because once you rise back you will never be the same again, you will be different, for the better. Falling doesn’t mean you have to live the rest of your life in that place, it depends on you to get up again and keep moving forward, or give up and stay in that place of suffering and despair for the rest of your life.

You can’t decide not to fall, but you can decide whether you will surrender and stay there forever, or you will stand up and you will keep moving forward. Falling do not define yourself, what defines you is the decision you make, you can either define yourself as a victim of life’s circumstances making yourself a loser, or you can define yourself as the creator of your destiny making yourself a winner.

 

 

 

 

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius

 

 

 

 

Life can be mean, but it always has a purpose by doing what it does, most of the time we cannot understand it due to our limited perspective as human beings, but in the darkness there is always a hidden gift waiting to be discovered, the key is to find it. It is all about learning to see in the dark, if you can do that, if you can see the light in the darkness, you whole life will change. You will no longer see falling as punishment but rather an opportunity to improve yourself, because you will be able to see that sometimes we fall, so we can become a better version of ourselves.

Okay I know, falling is painful but it depends on you if you are going to let the pain you are feeling destroy you, or if you are going to embrace the pain, and use it as a trigger for the greatness you have within yourself, what will reveal the wonderful power and potential in you, that you don’t even know you had, and believe me, we have within ourselves a powerful spirit capable of doing anything we want, the problem is we don’t know that until life puts us to a test. It is when we fall to that dark and hopeless place where we have the wonderful opportunity to reveal the greatness we have inside of us. It is in that place where your old self dies, and your new self comes to life.

 

 

 

“Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” – Alfred – Batman.

 

 

 

Falling is painful but not lethal, falling is not a punishment but an opportunity, it is you and only you who can decide if you are going to remain in that place of darkness and pain for the rest of your life, or if you are going to learn to see the light in the dark, releasing the wonderful potential you have within yourself. You can get up, you can start again, you can rise like the sun does every morning, you don’t have to be in the dark forever, cowards do that, and you are much better than that!

 

 

Arise my friend and keep fighting, until you beat life with a knock out, you can do it, because you are a winner!

The way to the top

The way to the top it’s tough, but it isn’t as tough as living the rest of your life looking it from below and wishing to be there. You will find on the way to the top many difficulties, but it will be worth it, because the view from the top is definitely outstanding.

 

 

"It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top." - Henry Ward Beecher

 

We all want to reach the top of something, for some of us it can be really high and for others not so much, the important thing is to have the desire to get somewhere, that means we have something that motivates us to become the best version of ourselves so we can reach that top, and that makes us to be truly alive, because if we don’t want to reach anything, if we don’t have dreams and goals and desires, then we are just walking corpses.

So once you have the desire to get to the top, you must make the first step, because that is the most important step, it means that despite all your fears and doubts, you have made the decision to follow your heart, and it requires a lot of courage and strength to do that. It doesn’t matter how slow you go, what really matters is not giving up. Once you start climbing, you can stop and slow down, but never look back until you get to the top.

 

 

 

We just wanna remember the view from the top, the breathtaking moment at the edge of the world, that’s what keeps us climbing and it’s worth the pain, that’s the crazy part, It’s worth anything!” – Meredith Grey

 

 

 

 

Have you ever tried to climb a mountain or a hill? It is never easy, right? Because the way to the top is always full of obstacles, difficulties and hardships, and require a lot of strength to keep going up. There are always things, situations, people who will interfere with our way and will make us want to give up, and you will have to face all your fears through the path, they will try to stop you, the will try to confuse you, and they will try to push you back to the bottom.

There will be moments where you will feel that you can’t stand it anymore, you will feel that you have lost strength and you will feel breathless, but in that moment just close your eyes, disconnect your mind from anything else around you, and just listen to your heart and ask yourself the most powerful question: Why? Why am I doing this? If in that moment you can visualize your dream and you can feel as you have reached the top and if it makes your heart to beat faster and puts a smile on your face, then you will have the answer to that question, and you will know that all that suffering is worth it, and you will stand up and you will keep moving forward with confidence.

 

 

 

“This journey to the top is going to be the most exciting and rewarding trip you’ll ever take!” – Zig Ziglar

 

 

 

Don’t give up and don’t allow your fears to stop you, because they will try to paralyze you, no matter how hard it seems just keep moving forward, it will be tough and you will have to face many difficulties, but it will be worth it!

 

 

It’s a long way to the top if you want to see your dreams become a reality, but with commitment, perseverance, and trust in yourself is possible. You can do it, see you at the top my friends!

Don’t settle for less than you deserve

Don’t settle for less just because it’s easier than fighting for what you truly deserve, sometime we have to be willing to lose everything in order to get everything. If you know who you are, what you can do, and what you deserve, go out and get it, and don’t settle!

 

 

"The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for." - Maureen Dowd

 

 

Don’t settle for crumbs, you know deep inside your heart that you deserve more, you know that the life you want is possible, you wish and dream every day for a miracle that can change your life, and that is because you know you have settled for less. Don’t be afraid of losing what you have in order to get what you deserve, because the day we settle for a life that is far less than the one we truly want and deserve is the day where we condemn ourselves to a mediocre and empty life.

If you have what you want, if you have a job, a relationship, a career, or anything you always wanted and though you feel grateful or happy about it but at the same time you feel unsatisfied, having the feeling that something is missing in your life, it’s probably because you have settled for a life that is less than the life you have always dreamed of.

 

 

 

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

 

 

 

Life is about making decisions and taking risks, where in fact the worst risk of all, is the risk of settling for a life that is not even close to the one we deserve. We have to make a decision, if we want to take the risk to settle and live a mediocre life for the rest of our lives leaving everything to chance or if we want to take the risk to fail over and over again in order to get the life we deserve.

The truth is that if we choose to follow our heart and take the risk to fail over and over again means that we are in the right way to achieve our goals and desires because failure only means that we are doing something, and as long as we don’t give up, we will get the life of our dreams and we’ll live a happy and fulfilled life.

 

 

 

“Every day, people settle for less than they deserve. They are only partially living or at best living a partial life. Every human being has the potential for greatness.” – Bo Bennett

 

 

 

Life is meant to be happy but the problem is we usually underestimate ourselves and so we settle for less than we deserve just because we have no idea of who we really are and what we are capable of, we have everything we need to achieve our goals and desires, but we must believe in ourselves and face all our fears. We must decide to leave behind everything we don’t deserve, in order to get what we truly deserve.

No matter if you have settled for an unfulfilled relationship, job, or any other aspects in your life, you have the power within yourself to decide to change your life. I know that sounds easy to say but believe me, no matter how hard it may seem to change your life, you will do it if you really believe in yourself, you deserve something better, you know that, and your soul is desperately screaming, because your soul knows who you really are and what are you capable of.

 

 

 

“The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.” – Thomas Merton

 

 

 

Life is too short my friends, and the truth is we never know when it will be the time for us to leave this earth, so let’s enjoy every second of it, there is no time to be afraid, there is no time to be sad, there is only time to do what we love and be happy.

 

Don’t settle for less, go and get everything you deserve!

Love Yourself

The longest relationship you will ever have is with yourself, so the best decision you can make is to love yourself first. Once you decide to love yourself, everything around you will make more sense, and you will no longer suffer needlessly.

 

If you are seeking love, seek within yourself first.

 

 

We suffer needlessly because we seek for others to give us the love we can’t give to ourselves, and when we seek for others to love us, we become dependent on the love of others to be happy, so when someone doesn’t love us and treat us as we would like, we feel sad, and our whole world falls apart.

We go through life begging for love, settling for a mediocre love, accepting a love that is much less than the one we deserve, and we do that because we don’t love ourselves, and we don’t love ourselves because we haven’t realized what kind of person we really are, we are not aware of our potential, we are not aware that we are beautiful human beings, with the power to make our dreams become a reality, we don’t love ourselves because we have forgotten who we really are and why are we here, we don’t love ourselves because we have forgotten that we can change the world and every human being on it in a second with the love, passion, strength and kindness that everyone has within ourselves.

 

 

 

 

“If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either.” – Mandy Hale

 

 

 

 

When we don’t love ourselves we become a victim of our daily circumstances, accepting a pathetic role where everything seems to be against us, when the truth is that we are against ourselves. The day we decided not to love ourselves, we decided to become a victim of the opinions and behaviors of others. It is not the world who is against you, it is you who is against yourself, and it’s you whom have decided to be a victim by letting the situations and people in your life to affect you, rather than loving yourself, and accepting those things that you deserve and letting go the rest.

When you really love yourself, you will no longer beg for love, and you will accept the love of others because you want it, not because you need it, and you will give love to everyone around you, without the need to have it back, what will make you less vulnerable to the actions of others. Once you have made the decision to love yourself as you really are, you will realize what kind of person you truly are, you will see how beautiful you are and what you can give to others, and you will no longer be devastated for the opinions and behaviors of others.

 

 

 

 

“Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.” – Steve Maraboli

 

 

 

 

Once you realize how amazing you really are, you will accept yourself with your perfections and imperfections, and you will start to love yourself, and once you do that, you will start to finally respect yourself, and you will decide to go after those things that makes you feel happy, and every decision you will ever make will be based in those things that push you forward, leaving behind those things that push you backwards.

We can’t make peace with our life if we don’t make peace with ourselves first, and we can only do that loving ourselves. The day you decide to love yourself, you will find peace, not because everything around you has changed, but because you have changed, and then you will not be a victim anymore, but a creator of your own destiny, going after people, situations and experiences that will make you be the best version of yourself you can be, and you will never accept something you don’t deserve again.

Decide to love yourself and make peace with you and with everyone around you, because the world and the humans suffering on it can only be healed by those people who truly love themselves, because those who truly love themselves, also love life, and when you love life and every being on it, you want to give them the best, so they can love themselves as well.

Your behavior is a reflection of what you have in your heart, if there is love, then you will love others, and you will receive it back multiplied.

Find your inner child

Find your inner child, and you will find yourself again. Go back to those times where everything seemed to be possible, those times where you could become whatever you wanted, those times where you could just be yourself.

 

“When childhood dies, its corpses are called adults and they enter society, one of the politer names of hell.  That is why we dread children, even if we love them, they show us the state of our decay.”

Brian Aldiss

 

Somehow we have mixed up the meaning of being a child, we gave to that word the meaning of being immature, not fully grown or emotionally undeveloped, and so when someone acts like a child, we say that he is a very immature person. But then I ask myself, every bad behavior which is realized day by day by humans against the world and every being around them, it is not an immature behavior?

The humans, especially those who are considered to be very mature, are the one who are destroying everything and everyone around them, even though they have been blessed with a beautiful world, a magnificent body with a wonderful mind with the power to create everything they want, but which they not used to create but to destroy, it is this a mature behavior?

 

“Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do.” – Jean de la Bruyere

 

The adults, those considered mature, are those who are constantly competing with each other, fighting with each other and those who are killing to each other, those people have forgotten the most important values as love, compassion, understanding, kindness, companionship and so on. And they have forgotten all that, because they have become a selfish person, they have become people who are only concerned with their own affairs.

When you grow up and become an adult, leaving the child behind, condemning the child spirit inside you to a death sentence, that’s when most of your dreams die, and that’s when part of your true self dies too, becoming your worst enemy. When you cease to be a child, you become vulnerable to all evil in this world, evil disguised as happiness, and so you let other adults who are also brainwashed by evil, to tell you what should you become in life, and what you should achieve either money, power, fame, material things and other nonsense.

 

“Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.” – Deepak Chopra

 

So I prefer to be like a child rather than an adult whose brain has been washed, I prefer the innocence of a child, a child who laugh just because he can, a child with creativity and imagination, a child who dreams, a child that believe that he can do anything in the world, a child who believe that he can be a superhero and help people, a child full of joy and love, a child that can see the beauty in the small things, a child who is happy for no reason, a child who can love even those things that are product of his imagination, a child who has friends no matter where they come from, a child who doesn’t discriminate others for their religion or race, a child who doesn’t know how to hate, a child who loves truly, and who is always loyal to that love without any kind of interest, selfishness, limitations or expectations.

 

“Hold the hand of the child that lives in your soul. For this child, nothing is impossible.” – Paulo Coelho

 

A child is an angel, who has become a puppet due to the environment where he was born, an environment which has taught him how to become a person with no dreams, no imagination, no hope, no happiness and no love.

It is time for all adults in this world find their inner child, that child who can make you be yourself again, who can bring you joy, happiness, hope and love, that child who will make you dream again, and will make you believe that everything is possible, that magic and miracles actually exist, so find you inner child, the one will make you a happy person again for no reason, a person who is grateful, specially for the small and more important things in this world, so find your inner child, play, laugh, have fun, enjoy life, be happy, dream, smile and live your life again.

 

“What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.”

Sigmund Freud
