When you are being judged by someone that has no idea who you are always remember this: Dogs always bark at strangers and usually there is always some wacko neighbor that wants to try out their new gun on an intruder.
When you have a plan in your mind of what the best life is for you, but it doesn't match your life, you have pain.
When you stop living your life based on what others think of you real life begins. At that moment, you will finally see the door of self-acceptance opened.
Why would you ever premedicate honesty? To hesitate is to overthink how you feel. A blurted out answer is usually the most genuine.
You can be broken into a dozen shattered pieces and still heal the world because service has its own medicine--hope.
You Chose; You chose; You chose; You chose; You chose to give away your love; You chose to have a broken heart; You chose to give up; You chose to hang on; You chose to react; You chose to feel insecure; You chose to feel anger; You chose to fight back; You chose to have hope; You chose to be na‹ve; You chose to ignore your intuition; You chose to ignore advice; You chose to look the other way; You chose to not listen; You chose to be stuck in the past; You chose your perspective; You chose to blame; You chose to be right; You chose your pride; You chose your games; You chose your ego; You chose your paranoia; You chose to compete; You chose your enemies; You chose your consequences; You chose; You chose; You chose; You chose; However, you are not alone; Generations of women in your family have chosen; Women around the world have chosen; We all have chosen at one time in our lives; We stand behind you now screaming: Choose to let go; Choose dignity; Choose to forgive yourself; Choose to forgive others; Choose to see your value; Choose to show the world you?re not a victim; Choose to make us proud;
You may marry Miss Grey for her fifteen pounds but you will always be my Willoughby. My nightmare. My sorrow. My past. My mistake. My regret. My love.
Your attachment to unhealthy people and bad habits, which offer you no real control, is why you?re spiritually dying and living a life out of balance.
You're going to come across some truly gifted people in your lifetime that seem to know all the answers. However, they lost their personal relationship with God, along the way. Love them anyways, and do everything you can to help them restore that relationship. They are fighting a war that you don't know anything about.
When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.
When you have the courage to follow your talents into the dark unknown places they lead, often God will send angels to light your way.
When you think yours is the only true path you forever chain yourself to judging others and narrow the vision of God. The road to righteousness and arrogance is a parallel road that can intersect each other several times throughout a person's life. It?s often hard to recognize one road from another. What makes them different is the road to righteousness is paved with the love of humanity. The road to arrogance is paved with the love of self.
Winning and losing is not an external game. It is an internal battle over telling yourself the truth vs. lies regarding why you haven?t stepped into the life you dreamed of.
You can change the place you live, your clothes, your interests, your friends, your religion and even your partner. However, if you forgot to change your mind, attitude, beliefs about the world, how you treat people and how you plan to be different this time around, why did you even bother?
You didn?t choose God. He chose you. When you stop feeling hurt by everyone and plotting your comeback, he has some very important things he wants you to accomplish with your life.
You might lose battles in your life time. However, every person that stands bravely on the side of justice, for people that have no voice, wins the true battle---Gods.
Your body is a temple, not a daily dumping ground for another person?s pain, anger, betrayal, judgment, hypocrisy, denial, games, jealousy or blame. When you are being psychologically, spiritually or emotionally abused by a person, and they don?t care how it hurts you, then it is time to leave what is polluting your relationship with God.
When you are near the middle of your life, often God will do outrageous things to knock you back on course.
When you invite people to share in your miracle, you create future allies during rough weather.
When you turn your back on hypocrisy and do nothing you don?t change the hearts of others you change yours.
Winning or losing achieves the same result--change.
You can find anyone that will tell you what you want to hear, but the only one worth valuing is the one that tells you what you need to learn.
You don?t go to church to find God; you bring him with you?attitude.
You need to forgive people you don't understand; if not, try to understand people you want to forgive.
Your current situation = the life expectations you have accepted as completed, unless you change your comfort zone to create a better life.
