And pleasure comes with pain.
I’ve learned that everything that looks and sounds good can be the worst decision of your life if you heart and mind isn’t right.
That your best friends can become strangers and your loved ones can grow to hate you... or hated you all along.
I’ve learned that anything you want in life takes hard work on top of hard work to get what you want or to where you want to be.
I’ve learned that situations change, people outgrow each other, addictions changes people, the death or loss of someone never get easier... but as you keep your eyes on God and remember the good times without bitterness, and remember to keep on living life without hate, making the effort to make more good times and find the beauty and peace in each day helps tremendously.
I’ve learned that no matter how anyone treats you, that it does not define who you are, it only shows who they really are.
I’ve learned that no matter how hard you try at anything, you always have to give a little bit more effort than you thought was required.
And regardless what anyone says or how you feel about yourself, you are special, unique, awesome, amazing, beautiful, complete in your very own way! And to love, everyone and everything needs more love!! The world can not define you, diagnose you or destroy you... it’s all in the mind. So you be the best version of yourself as often as you can.
When you think about all your mistakes, all your failures, all your losses, think about the lessons that came with it.
Think about all your successes, your accomplishments, your progress, think about how far you came.
You are not the same a year ago, 5 years ago, 10 years ago, you are not the same from yesterday or even 10 seconds ago.
I have learned we all have the potential to grow and be better or worse, we choose!
Most importantly, is to learn through life. If you haven’t learned anything by now, stop and smell the flowers.
Always keep learning and living and loving all the days of your life.
People leave, jobs quit on you, situations happen, but keep your mind right and peace in your heart.
