Optimist

Yes I am an optimist
And no things don’t always work out for me

No I won’t tell you tomorrow will be better when your heart is broken today

No I won’t tell you, you will get 100 followers tomorrow when you’ve started your account just yesterday

No I won’t tell you life is always sunshine and rainbows

I go through hard times too
I do make mistakes
Even I experience disappointment and rejection

But there is one thing I know for sure –
No matter how difficult things look now, there is always hope.

You won’t feel better tomorrow, but eventually, you will
You may not get 100 followers the next day, but eventually, you will
You may feel low now, but eventually you will experience joy

Sometimes more than anything,
I feel good to imagine the world as rainbows and sunshine
Because if I don’t,
I might not feel like going on in life

That’s why I choose to focus on positives
No matter how small they seem!

And here’s a secret –
The more I look for positivity, the more goodness I find!

Love

We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known,

and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.

Love is not something we give or get, it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can love others as much we love ourselves.

Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows.

Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare.

Bernè Brown

(The Gifts of Imperfection)

Daring greatly

Something to remember when things get tough and people start mocking at you or telling you how better can you do…. when you start to loose courage and feel overwhelmed by everything….

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of the the deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming, but who does actually strive to do the deeds who knows greater enthusiasms, the greater devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause,

who at the best knows in the end of the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, fails while daring greatly….

-Theodore Roosevelt
