💚 Life is a struggle. Life will throw curveballs at you, it will humble you, it will attempt to break you down. And just when you think things are starting to look up, life will smack you back down with ruthless indifference. At least, that’s how it often feels, right?
💛 The reason most people never achieve their dreams is because they simply give up. Life was never meant to be easy – its a constant struggle, with extreme lows and amazing highs. Remember that the times when its most important to persevere are the times that you will be most tested.
🧡 You keep going because you remember the first time you laughed with new friends. You remember how long it had been since you laughed – and felt it warm your insides. You keep going because you feel love slowly beginning to embrace your heart. By letting down these walls you’ve cast aside the strongest protections an individual can create. Isolation no longer rules your every waking minute. You begin to trust again – first one person, then two, then three. Then yourself. You relax for a brief moment and feel the tension that you’ve built up slowly loosen its grip on you.
💙 And finally, you breathe.
It’s been a long journey thus far, and I know a few are struggling. Stop, let go of the overwhelm and control what you can.
1. Make a list of goals – daily, weekly, and big fat hairy ones – then attack one at a time.
2. Work out every day – even if it is only a quick walk around the block.
3. Make a schedule and stick to it – set your intention and chose your behaviour.
4. Find your ‘whys’ – why do you give up?
5. Find some mentors – they don’t have to experts, just someone who will listen and offer support.
6. Stop comparing yourself with other people – if you don’t believe in your potential then noone else will.
7. Take care of yourself and think positively – we all have days when we lose motivation, but don’t be too hard on yourself when they happen.

💚 In a world full of people, what can be more beautiful than knowing how to form healthy relationships and establish deeper connections with those around us?
🌿 What can be more powerful than looking at people around you and understanding that by being kind, loving and helpful towards them, you are also being kind, loving and helpful towards yourself?
🤓 Albert Einstein said it so beautifully with these words: “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
💚 This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
