Spread the love

at some point you just got to forgive the past your happiness hinges on it there are not a lot of things worth caring about the past is a place of reference not a place of residence the past is a place of learning not a place of living we’re all born with two things borrowed time in very in amounts and the ability to make choices if you wish to know how you’re spending yours observe how others waste their time making wrong choices and don’t repeat them don’t correct people if you could just as easily let it slide you can either be a negative or positive person in life but only one will get you somewhere life doesn’t care about your vision you just got to roll with [Music] it nothing happens to anyone that he is not fit by nature to Bear you will never remember the days and nights you stay home and do nothing it’s never never too late to turn your life in a completely new Direction and there is huge importance in just one [Music] day lessons in life will be repeated until they are learned you will never be who you want to be until you are happy with who you [Music] are when you get a different vantage point it changes is your perspective it allows us to see things that maybe we should have seen a long time ago if you’re right but you’re obnoxious about it people won’t see you as the good guy courage doesn’t always Roar sometimes it is a quiet voice at the end of the day saying we’ll try again tomorrow why let go of yesterday because yesterday has already let go of [Music] you don’t spend your life dreaming about what could have been in another place or under different circumstances instead invest your energy in what is right in front of you people often confuse stress with respons ibility in this life you don’t have to prove anything to anyone but yourself accept things as they are life isn’t about living in the past or living for the future it’s about living in the now it is not a lack of time it is a lack of prior ity enjoy every bit of your life to the fullest your compromises and sacrifices will be rewarded no one ever got tired of loving they get tired of waiting hearing lies assuming saying sorry and hurting never keep people in your life if they don’t love and respect you as much as you do them the reason you want to be better than someone else is the reason why you aren’t it’s not whether or not you get knocked down it’s what you do when you get back up a man must be big enough to admit his mistakes smart enough to profit from them and strong enough to correct [Music] them be the person you needed when you were younger strive to make small changes and learn something new daily because there are always these experiences you have had to tap into for the future someone’s opinion of you doesn’t have to become your reality not everybody who speaks in a pleasant way to you is your friend people are not good people are not bad people are just people experience don’t expect experience life do not carry expectations on how it should be wanting something is not enough you must hunger for it your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way our lives are defined by opportunities even the ones we miss every person alive hits a Crossroads in life when you have to let let go of the past and Forge ahead into something new the only sad thing would be clinging to the Past once it’s Out Of Reach if you change the way you look at things the things you look at change if you saturate your mind with positive thoughts it will sustain you in any situation you don’t ever truly know another person unless you can take up residence in their head you’ll never be privy to their true nature it is not our abilities that show what we truly are it is our choices you train people how to treat you unconsciously or not you are either part of the problem or part of the solution never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity you’ve got to know when it’s time to turn the page forgiving doesn’t make the person who hurt you feel better it makes you feel better if someone is trying to bring you down it only means you are above them socializing is just like any skill you need to practice before you’re good at it life is brutal and will break your heart and you just have to be brave and do the best you can never deny yourself an experience just because it’s unknown or uncomfortable it may just be a defining and wonderful part of your life never go to the Past not for happiness not for justification not for excuses the world is what it is you are what you are sometimes the right path is not the easiest one if you only blame your problems on someone else don’t expect your life to get [Music] better life is an experiment in which you may fail or succeed Explore More expect least people don’t forget nothing gets [Music] forgiven things are only impossible until they are not each defeat each heartbreak each loss contains its own seed its own lesson on how to improve your future don’t prepare the road for your kids prepare your kids for the road don’t be scared because you don’t have all the answers right away you will learn through your experiences and find your own way to happiness just because you got away with a bad decision it doesn’t make it a good decision speak with caution even if someone forgives harsh words you’ve spoken they may be too hurt to ever forget them don’t leave a legacy of pain pain and regret of things you never should have [Music] said it’s not your fault things are the way they are you need to have faith in yourself be brave and take risks you don’t have to have it all figured out to move forward accept responsibility for your life know that it is you who will get you where you you want to go no one [Music] else make improvements not excuses seek respect not attention opportunities can become obstacles the same way obstacles can become opportunities it all depends on how they are being interpreted by the mind of a [Music] person if you’re going to apologize you don’t say but after either you mean it or you don’t there are more things likely to frighten us than to crush us we suffer more often in imagination than in reality all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us life moves pretty fast if you don’t stop and look around once in a while you could miss it anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured fake love is mighty convincing in a world where real love is mighty rare you can only lose what you cling to if you want to find happiness find gratitude except that things happen it may not be for a reason and you may have no control over it but the first step to getting through it is accepting what it is you’ll never be able to please everyone so don’t make your life revolve around being accepted by everyone don’t rely on others to tell you how to be happy or what makes a good life it’s up to you to follow your heart and find happiness from there sometimes Which choice you make is not as as important as making a choice and committing to [Music] it a denied expectation hurts more than a denied hope while a fulfilled hope makes us happier than a fulfilled expectation don’t worry about controlling your emotions control your [Music] actions don’t wait for something good to happen realize that there are no participation trophies in life go out and do something for yourself success comes from action there’s no shame in saying I don’t know nobody has all the answers pretending to be perfect doesn’t make you [Music] perfect good people always marry wrong people because they see the good in everyone even when it’s not reciprocated listen to your conscience and do the right thing no matter the cost you can’t put a price on self-respect whoever fights can lose whoever doesn’t fight has already lost we live longer when we are too busy living
