Forgiveness

Forgiveness1

Forgiveness is not something we do for other people.
We must do it for ourselves.
We must forgive so that we can heal, to overcome and to be able to move on in our life.

Some people feel that a person or circumstance may have come into their life and ruined them in some way.That this person or circumstance has ruin them in a way in which they feel they are paralyzed and cannot go on about what they may have previously wanted to achieve in their life.

However, some people will feel that even though a person or circumstance may have impacted their life in a negative way, they will still maintain control of themselves and stay focused on what they wish to achieve in their life. They do not allow this one particular person or circumstance to rob them of their goals they have set for themselves.

As with many things that you may set out to do in life, not all will have the desired outcome you wish to have. You should not let this setback taint your overall desire to do and become better in your life.

IF there happens to be an outside source that may have contributed to your setback, you must find it within yourself to overcome any hard feelings towards certain people or circumstances and overcome any feelings of despair and move on. Otherwise you will never get anywhere in life.

Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were.” Cherie Carter-Scott

Your life is ALWAYS up to YOU. Make the right choice that will empower you and give you the strength to keep on keeping on.

Because It’s All About YOU! and Changing Yourself and your Life for the Better

Gifts Bestowed Upon You

giftsI would like to share a wonderful secret with you, JUST in case you do not realize it yet.

At the moment you were born, and you took your first breath, a great celebration was held in the heavens and twelve magnificent gifts were granted to you.

You were born with certain gifts, abilities or talents. You may not ever realize this until you go through certain circumstances in your life.

Even though you possess each of these gifts, they may not seem to be as obvious to you as you may see them to be in others.

However, just as the expression says, “there is a time and place for everything”, there will be a time and place for each of these gifts to make themselves known to you. This may prove to be a very enlightening and empowering time for you.

Believe it or not, you are equipped to withstand and overcome many things in life. You must however, keep doing all that you can to better yourself and have faith that you can keep moving forward even in the most trying times.

Time to Stop Making Excuses and Take Action

focus believe achieve
There’s only so many times you can allow someone to knock you down, whether it may be physically or emotionally, before you can’t handle anymore. You will then need to decide to either put a stop to it OR get out of the way. The choice is yours!

When things change, people change. You should not feel trapped or held down in whatever ongoing situation you may currently be in. YOU, MUST make a conscious decision to make a change, even if it means doing something or acting in a way you never have before. Only YOU can stop the nonsense.

There’s a point in life where you will get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix things, but it’s not giving up, it is called living life and doing what has to be done to get to where you wish to be in life. If what you are doing for others is not getting YOU to where you wish to be in YOUR life, then it is time to make some changes and take care of yourself. This is NOT being selfish, this is called being smart and making a change for the better. Repeating the same action day after day will ONLY produce the same results. Take a chance and try something new. Who knows where it could lead you and those who wish to see you succeed.

You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts. Time to take the blinders off and step out of that box. Take a chance on life…. YOUR life. Success is there for the taking. Make sure to grab hold of what you deserve.

Suggestions on how to begin rebuilding Life from Within:

Love yourself, unconditionally.
Release your bottled up emotions.
Make time for long walks, alone.
Avoid living beyond your means.
Nurture your inner strength.
Stop apologizing for being you.
Surround yourself with POSITIVE people.
Enhance your situation, whatever it may be.

Have Faith,
Be Strong,
Have a strong Will and Desire to be more in life,
Believe in Yourself and especially during your darkest moments…
Fight with ALL your might to Overcome to Keep on Keeping On!

Success is YOURS for the taking. Reach out and take part in Life

Focus…..Believe…..you WILL Achieve!you choose action
