“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”-Eleanor Roosevelt
This is a quote I saw a while ago that has stuck with me when realizing where certain people stand in my life. As I grow and work on myself I notice, watch, and learn how other people treat others. Also how they talk or speak to themselves, about themselves, about others, and who they like to talk about. I’ve come to learn how someone treat a person they “love” or like is a great indication as to how they’ll treat you. MOTIVATIONAL HEALING: LEARN YOUR SOURCE OF ANGER I guess you can say I character watch. It show a lot about ones character and who they are. The type of people they hang around, what they talk about, what they like to watch on TV, do they stand up for themselves or others are all things that tells you more about someone before you even engage with them. Pay attention to the non verbal cues. If you are at a place in life where you need to reevaluate some relationships or afraid to put space in some relationships take a look at how they treat others. Do you want more of the same or something different? Enjoy the rest of your day!!!!!
”Don’t let the storm in your heart overshadow the sunshine in your soul.”-c.r. Elliott
You are not your circumstances. Don’t own anything that isn’t you. Furthermore, don’t accept, participate, and own the labels others attempt to put on you. I have been guilty of this most of my life. The labels my family put on me I subconsciously accepted and owned. You have the right to live the life you want to live. Not the life others think you should live. Remember that you are not a victim you are a survivor. Isolated events that has taken place in your life doesn’t define your story. You are the author and finisher of your story. Don’t ever dim your light for someone else’s comfort. Shine bright and blind them. Enjoy the rest of your day!!!!!!
”I have not failed. I’ve just found 100,000 ways that won’t work.”- Thomas A. Edison
I came across this quote at just the right time last week. You know I’ve been in training for this new position and it’s quite intense in the beginning as always. But per usual, we all can be excited and confident, but still have a little hint of “what have I gotten myself into” moment. Then this quote popped on my computer. It was a great reminder that I needed to tell myself failure is in not trying. As long as you are trying, giving your best, and following your heart, you can’t and won’t fail. You just learned what isn’t for you and what won’t work for you. All the while, pulling away a great teaching moment for yourself and wisdom to put in your file cabinet. No matter how long it takes, how many times it takes, or the road to get there you ARE NOT a failure. KEEP GOING AND PUSH YOURSELF Keep trying, keep going, keep pushing through the doubt, and keep telling yourself how good you are. Enjoy the rest of your day!!!!!!
”Sometimes you don’t get what you want because you deserve better.”-@myselflovesupply
Are you asking too small? Many times when we receive a “no” we are devastated and disappointed. In fact sometimes we give up on that hope, dream, or goal. When in actuality, that “no” was a protection from ourselves. What we want or think we want is often not the best for us. So God has to protect us from our own self. It’s a correction, protection, and redirection. Don’t get discouraged. Ask yourself, what am I supposed to do with this “no”. God what are you trying to tell me? GOD IS A KEEPER How many times have a circumstance actually played out and you said, “I’m glad I didn’t get what I thought I was going to get.” It’s because the one thing that we want so bad may not be the best. You deserve the best. Are you asking for the best? Enjoy the rest of your day!!!!!!!
”You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”-Buddha
Everyone has a right to get mad, angry, and upset. No matter what we do in life, or how hard we work on ourselves something is going to bother us. However, it’s what we do in that moment of anger. How do you handle your anger? MOTIVATIONAL HEALING: LEARN YOUR SOURCE OF ANGER If you choose to act on it and make the other person feel just as hurt as you, then you’ll probably regret the results in the long run. On the other hand, if you choose to way your options, not respond, or take time responding you’ll be more at peace with how you handled your anger. I’m a firm believer in matching someone’s anger is what makes us most angry. We’ve allowed someone to have power and control over our emotions. Training your mind to remain calm and in control in every situation will help when we are having our moments. Enjoy the rest of your day!!!!!!
