Sooo...whats up people? Happy new year jare. Been a hot minute hasn't it? well, my school and work combo will not kill me. Anyways, i used to be a journal girl. As in seriously o! As at 2 years ago, I would write down what happened during the day, and all the feelings I felt during that day. But after a while, it just got kinda old and i sha fashied that one. lol. But i didn't throw any of my journals away and i tell you! it is amazing when you go back and read that stuff. Kinda like, did i do that?! no way was i thinking that! awww hell no she didn't! and so on and so forth. it was quite an experience for me yesterday, i just spent half the day reading my old journals and trying to remember what the hell i was talkng about. lol. So, while on my journey down memory lane, i came across this
THE LETTERS OF HAPPINESS
Accept others for who they are and for the choices they've made even if you have difficulty understanding their beliefs, motives or action.
B- BREAK AWAY
Break away from everything that stands in the way of what you hope to accomplish with your life.
Create a family of friends whom you can share your hopes, dreams, sorrows and happiness with.
Decide that you'll be successful and happy come what may and good things will find you. the roadblocks are only minor obstacles along the way
Explore and experiment! the world has much to offer, and you have much to give. Everytime you try something new, you'll learn more about yourself.
Forgive and forget. Grudges only weigh you down and inspire unhappiness and grief. Soar above it, and remember that everyone makes mistakes.
Leave the childhood monsters behind, they can no longer hold you down or stand in your way
Hope for the best and never forget that anything is possible as long as you remain dedicated to the task.
Ignore the negative voice inside your head. Focus instead on your goals and remember your accomplishments. Your past success is only a small inkling of what the future holds.
Journey to new worlds, new possiblities, by remaining open-minded. Try to learn something new everyday, and you'll grow.
Know that no matter how bad things seem, they'll always get better. The warmth of spring always follow the harshest winter.
Let love fill your heart instead of hate. When hate is in your heart, there's room for nothing else, but when love is your heart, there's room for endless happiness.
Manage your time and your expenses wisely and you'll suffer less stress and worry. Then you'll be able to focus on the important things in life.
Never ignore the poor, infirm, helpless, weak or suffering. Offer your assistance when possible and always, your kindess and understanding.
Open your eyes and take in all the beauty around you. Even during the worst of times, there's still much to be thankful for.
Never fogrt to have fun along the way. Success means nothing without happiness.
Ask many questions, because you're here to learn.
Refuse to let worry and stress rule your life, and remember that things always have a way of working out in the end.
Share your talents, skills, knowledge and times with others. Everything that you invest in others will return to you many times over
Even when your dreams seem impossible to reach, try anyway. You'll be amazed by what you can accomplish.
Use your gifts to your best ability. Talent thats wasted has no value. Talent thats used will bring unexpected rewards.
Value the friends and family members who've supported and encouraged you, and be there for the as well.
Work hard everyday to be the best person you can be, but never feel guilty if you fall short of your goals. Every sunrise offers a second chance.
Look deep inside the hearts of those around you and you'll see the goodness and beauty within.
Yield to committment. If you stay on track and remain dedicated, you'll find success at the end of the road.
Zoom to a happy place when bad memories or sorrow rear its ugly head. Let nothing interfere with your goals. Instead, focus on your abilities, your dreams, and a brighter tomorrow.
Well, it was just the inspiration i needed for the new year.
