REFLECTIONS – 07/06/21 – 1.23

If you want to achieve all your goals and do not want any unnecessary stress in life, do not get married or cohabit. Do not feel pressured by what is happening around you among your peers or friends. Not all people are destined for marriage or to be together. Understand that early on in your adult life.

RELATIONSHIPS

“Behind every great relationship are difficult and uncomfortable conversations we rarely get to see. Great relationships don’t just fall into our laps. They require people to move through their fears, and insecurities and do the hard work to move wounds into healing.” – Vienna Pharon

Introspection is such an important part of truly understanding ourselves to identify our blind spots. It’s sad when people get older, and they have regrets about their life of the things they should and shouldn’t have done, the people they treated badly and the reckless decisions they made. Take a good look at yourself before you go about your business.

LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF

“Live your life the best you can. It can be hard, even on good days, but still do it, work the best you can, and give yourself credit And if you have flaws, fine. Just do not focus on them; work on them. If you looked only at your flaws, you probably would not feel worthy to be here because you would see the errors of your behavior and the imperfections of your body. So focus on the goodness of the work you do, and correct the flaws as you go along.” – John –Roger

Your primary objective in your daily routine should be to look out for yourself. You aren’t selfish for doing so. You will be in the best possible shape to take on the challenges life throws at you.  

SELF-CARE

“You owe yourself one hour a day of self-maintenance. It can include reading, writing, yoga, exercise, dancing, meditation, painting, or whatever, but you owe it to yourself. One hour, 1/24 of your day. That is less than 5%. It matters, it really does.” – Sarah Brassard

The most extraordinary measure of a person’s real character is their ability to bounce back from adversity. If you can take a beating and still keep on ticking, you are a badass!

TRUE GRIT

Like in American Football, a team fights for the ground they make for every yard of play, you should not focus on the end product in your life. Instead, take small incremental steps to improve yourself in your life and at work, to get rid of the habits that hold you back, and making the right decisions in the moments that matter.

SMALL STEPS

Mistakes happen like it or not. It’s a part of life. It’s what makes us human. What is not right though is people’s inability to say sorry when they’ve messed up. That creates even more anger and frustration for the other person. Be mindful and start saying sorry if you want to build bridges, and let your ego sleep.

SORRY

“Being able to say ‘I am sorry’ makes a difference in your life. It is the key that opens the cage of guilt.” – Nansia Movidi

“Should I or shouldn’t I? We’ve all probably faced this exact dilemma when faced with making a difficult decision. To move forward, we sometimes just need to take a leap of faith.

Some folk expect to have life all figured out by the time they finish their education. Life does not work like clockwork. That’s because we can’t control everything in our lives. The decisions of others often impact our reality, and we need to understand that. However, what we do need is the conviction to make the right move in the moment that matters.
