One thing I have learned over the last 3 years here at CFA is if something seems too good to be true, it probably is not. The reason it seems too good to be true is you are scared to believe, scared to let yourself be vulnerable, scared to be hurt.
You can not let that fear overrule your life. You need to BELIEVE.
Given some different circumstances things could have been different, things may have not played out the way they did, but you can not live in that mindset, forget the past, there is no should have, could have, or would have. All that we have in this world is there is.
Reality is what we need. When you think of regrets, or things that "shouldn't have happened" your destined for unhappiness. Be happy with the present, pray for the future and believe you can make your future phenomenal.
We can not let people bring us down, doubt us, or let their opinions control our mind. If you do you will never be happy. Their negativity is like poison as the great Todd Durkin says. We can not let our minds be filled with this poison. We need to believe in ourselves, our love, our dreams, our goals, our needs, our wants. Simply put, all we need is to BELIEVE.
You are never too young or too old to grow, to believe, to nurture your heart, mind and soul. Live your life with those that you know will care for you, build you up, and help you grow into a better person.
We can not see change as a negative thing. If someone makes you want to change for the better or someone wants to change for you, then they are true. They care. They are there to help you grow, because we all know real change is nothing more than growth. It is an expansion of the heart, soul, body and mind. Transforming everything about you into the successful happy person that you deserve to be.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, be happier, love, or help others. You need to believe that you can. Do not let doubters bring you down from your happiness high. Embrace what makes you happy. Embrace those who care about you. Embrace the life you so rightfully deserve.
Each and everyone of you are full of desires, you can try to hide them, but you know that you have them. If you push them away, guess what else your pushing away.... A chance at something real. A chance to be happy. A chance to grow. A chance to love.
Accept vulnerability, accept the chance that you may be hurt, accept the chance of failure. If you don't you will lead the same life, full of despair and sadness for not realizing your true potential, for not letting yourself advance.
This relates to all aspects of life I am beginning to find out. I am not speaking simply through the gym because there is much more to life than a healthy body. we want an overall wellness.
Our heart must be full of love (for our relationships, work, friends, life), our soul must be touched by that special person, and our mind must believe that anything you can dream of is possible.
If just one aspect is missing we will lead a life of emptiness, of sadness, of regret.
You can have it all, anyone that says otherwise is wrong. Anyone that doubts your chance at happiness without knowing those that will bring it to you is wrong.
For how can you judge a person without knowing them.
If you assume, you are not creating life you are breaking it down.
You are not helping, you are pretty much giving them a big fat bitch slap across the face (please excuse my language)
Please, please, please hold off on your assumptions, as my 6th grade teacher Mr. Canda taught me, "when you assume, you make an ass out of u, and me" and I do not feel anyone deserve to be made an ass of. And if you are the one assuming, you rightfully deserve to be that ass. You are poison.
find out the real info if you want to give advice, but do not, I repeat do not give blind advice. For you have no idea the pain you may cause.
Believe in the right thing, believe in the opportunities presented to you or your friends, and if you don't believe and don't know, find out! Give yourself a chance to believe before you dismiss it.
Believe, Believe, Believe.
If not.... Happiness is just a fairy tale.
Whether it is losing weight, finding faith, giving your heart to someone, or simply achieving your dreams. YOU MUST BELIEVE!!
If you don't. you will not get what you deserve. You will not be happy.
You are special, you are loved, and you deserve the world.
Let yourself BELIEVE.
and Love some more.
God loves you, Mike(y) loves you, So love yourself!
