10 things I did to protect my peace of mind.

Image
  We've only got one life to live and once it's done, it's done. However long your time on earth shall last, be sure that you make the most of it. No one can live your life for you. It's yours to live to the fullest. The sooner you've come to realize this the more you'll do everything in your power to ensure that you're living your best life. I've realized that my life is short and there are people and things that I'm never going to allow to shorten my life on earth or destroy my peace of mind. Below are ten things I did to protect my peace of mind. If you should ask me, I have no regrets and I will do them again. ''When you make peace with yourself, you make peace with the world.'' Maha Ghosananda   1. Pray more, worry less. No problem has ever been solved through worrying. You'll have to find one way or another to resolve whatever adversity that you're facing in life. There's a solution to every problem, even if we

How I handle criticism while showcasing my talent.

  If you never want to be criticized, then do nothing! Even then, you won't avoid criticism because people will always have something to say. The greatest among men, Jesus, has been criticized. Don't ever think that you'll be exempt? I won't tell you that I'm the toughest cookie! I too have my share of criticism. I just don't allow it to consume me. At the end of the day, I know that I'm an imperfect person. I can't please everyone, and I won't be everyone's cup of tea. I wouldn't say that it's easy to shake it off and get over it when you are being criticized because every one of us has feelings, and it doesn't matter how strong we are mentally. Some things can throw us off balance. It's even more difficult to handle when it's from the persons closest to us and even ourselves.   However,  as harsh as some criticism may sound, they aren't always meant to be destructive, and as nice as some may be they aren't always ben

Confidence boosting quotes

  How many times were you told that you weren't good enough and you believed it? How many times were you told that it isn't possible, not that it's impossible, but only because it's you and you believed it? How many times were you frowned upon and you accepted it, thinking you weren't good enough or will never be good enough?  How many times have you replayed the negative thoughts that others have been saying about you? How many times have you doubted yourself because you're afraid of what others might think? You need to stop! It ends right here!  You need to start apologizing to yourself. For believing everything that you've accepted from people who know zero about you. For allowing other people's negative perceptions of you to live in your head. For prioritizing what other people think about you.  For all the times that you wanted to be a people pleaser. You owe yourself an apology! It's time to take full control of your life.  It was never your re

How to move forward when no one is supporting your dreams.

Image
  How many times have you had promises been made to you, only to be left stranded at the very last minute?  How many times were you given the cold shoulder by the persons you've stuck your neck out for? How many times have you been sidestepped by the persons you'll go a mile for? How many times have you felt discouraged because there isn't anyone who believes in you or your dreams? Maybe you're thinking about pursuing your career, starting a business, owning a home, furthering your education, turning your life around for the better, etc. But you're just not getting the kind of support that you need.  People are like this! Family and friends are like this! That's why I avoid feeling entitled but I'm most appreciative of any kind of support that I get from people.   If you give with expectations then you'll only face disappointments. Many will never return the favors you've granted them and some will choose to forget. Don't expect too much from any

Go beckon the morning (Poem)

Image
  There must have been times when you felt as though the nights were never-ending and your pain was just too much to bear. There must have been times when it felt as though you'll never stop crying yourself to sleep. There must have been times when all you wanted was for the peaceful morning to come and put your woeful nights at ease. I've had my restless nights. I've had my cold and stormy nights but I've also had beautiful nights. Sometimes life can take us to some dark places, where it seems as if there's no way out.  This poem, Go beckon the morning,  echoes the cry of someone who's just longing for peace. Someone who's just needing a breakthrough! Someone who's just searching for an answer!  Someone who's just longing for their night to end. Not the literal night, but the dark struggles of life. It's never easy to conquer the pressures of life. It's never easy to stand alone on the mental battlefield. To be focused! To be strong! To conq

Self-confidence (Poem)

  This poem is dedicated to anyone who is struggling with self-doubt. Remember it starts and ends with you. You must believe that you can do it and greatness exists in you! I met her by the mirror, Lost between a million thoughts, I saw her conjure little dreams, Like bubbles that expanded, Then suddenly fading away, She made an awful sigh, As though the last breath of oxygen, Had vacated her air, I could feel the weight of her heart, And the pain she carries every day, If Heaven hears my prayer, From this day on she’ll sigh no more, And all she thought she never had, I’ll tell her they were there before, I take her dreams over mountains and seas, And I’ll let them soar, I’ll be the light to conquer her gloom, For it isn’t right for anyone to believe, They were just born to die, And it isn’t right for anyone to live forever, In another’s rejection of them, But it does feel right to let someone become who, They were created to be, That is why I must sincerely apologize to Me,

Purpose in life quotes

In case you were never told, believe from this day forward that you were born on purpose. You are no accident. You are no mistake. You are not useless!  It doesn't matter where in the world you were born. It doesn't matter if you are rich or poor. You must never accept anything less! It doesn't matter who believes in you as long as you believe in yourself. If a little seed possesses the ability to produce an entire forest. Can you imagine how much value lies within you? If God could have placed such significance on the output of a seed.  Can you imagine the significance He placed on you who is of far more value than a seed? The story is told of the mustard seed,  The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of  mustard seed , which a man took, and sowed in his field; which indeed is smaller than all seeds but when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs and becomes a  tree , so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches. If the smallest of all the seeds can produce
