I started to ponder on how much I have learned in the past year and how much I have changed. Which got me thinking about the next couple years and how much more I will learn and grow. Who I was five years ago and what mattered to me five years ago is light ages away from who I am today and what matters the most to me today.
1. The very best way to predict what someone will do in the future is to look at what they’ve done in the past
….Don’t wait around waiting for someone to be what you would like them to be. Men rarely change unless his conviction to change comes deep from within and is truly and mostly for himself and no one else. Learn to love and appreciate how amazing you are and then you will never stand for bullshit.
2. Excellence is an achievable goal – perfection is not.
….You may not be perfect but parts of you are pretty awesome. Don’t burn yourself out trying to be everything you are not. It’s ok to not do or be perfect on everything. Everyone has a bad hair day, a bad test day, a bad day at work day but you can always know every second is a chance for change. You create everyday who you want to be but just make sure your base of what you stand for is always intact.
3. You absolutely, unequivocally CANNOT please everyone
…Someone will always have a problem with you but most of the time that isn’t your problem it’s there problem. You live your life the way you see fit and right for yourself not for anyone else. You create your dreams not the girl making snide remarks or the boy who broke your heart.
4. There are very few things in life that are truly important.
You really realize this when unexpected accidents claim lives, when diseases like cancer invade and claim peace of mind, when financial struggles set in and threaten security. Love your family and friends and those who treat you right because at the end of the day these are the people who will be there for answering their phone at God awful hours just to let you know you need to stop crying and smudging your mascara.
5. The Law of Attraction is a very real and simple force. Learn to use it for benefit, and watch as your world transforms..
….if you really change your thoughts you do change your world. Whatever you want you can create and make happen. Always be positive because complaining or feeling sorry for yourself is really going to get you nowhere…sorry to say but it’s the harsh truth.
In the meantime shop til you drop,dance all those calories away, love deep, care less, laugh more and smile BIG!!!
