When you blame others, what you are really saying is what is inside of you can?t be fixed, so you have no control of your own happiness. Therefore, you have made the conscience choice to give focus and fuel to a bad situation that will take you nowhere and give you nothing, but ignorance and pain.
When you lose your ego, you win. It really is that simple.
Whenever you can?t balance what you see with what you believe you have conflict.
Worry does not keep it from raining tomorrow, but it does keep it from being sunny today.
You can not choose your calling. Your calling chooses you.
You don't have to be strong to survive a bad situation; you simply need a plan.
You will never change, unless you are honest with yourself or you are forced to be authentic by someone that was honest with him or herself.
Your heart?s strength is measured by how hard it holds on. Your self-worth and faith is measured by finally letting go. However, your peace is measured by how long you don?t look back.
It is not the hand that rocks the cradle that rules the world; it is the woman that holds the keys to the kingdom.
It takes a mother to raise them correctly,
Life is as simple as these three questions: What do I want? Why do I want it? And, how will I achieve it?
Marriage creates one world for your child. For that alone, two old friends can try to see a peaceful world through the eyes of their angels.
Music is the beat of a drum that keeps time with our emotions.
Never let the principle of what you believe in become more important than the person.
Not enough people realize that ADHD is not a disorder about loss of focus. It is a disorder of loss of emotional control, which is triggered by outside influences, self-esteem and our interpretation of events. Whether this is positive or negative it triggers us to hyper focus on what consumes our thoughts. Staying positive is critical and distancing oneself from hurtful people is essential, in order to live a life with purpose.
Often those that criticise others reveal what he himself lacks.
People that have been consistently hurt by others in life will only see the one time you hurt them and be blinded to all the good your heart has to offer. They look no further than what they want to see. Unfortunately, most of them remain a victim throughout their life.
Real women fight for something, other than their own emotions.
Sensitive people usually love deeply and hate deeply. They don't know any other way to live than by extremes because thier emotional theromastat is broken.
Some people say, Once you learn to be happy, you won't tolerate being around people who make you feel anything less. My Christ says, Your job is to get off your self righteous butt and start reaching out to the difficult people because my ministry wasn?t about a bunch of nice people getting together once a week to sing hymns and get a feel good message, that you may or may not apply, depending on the depth of your anger for someone. It is about caring for and helping the broken hearted, the difficult, the hurt, the misunderstood, the repulsive, the wicked and the liars. It is about turning the other cheek when someone hurts you. It is about loving one another and making amends. It is allowing people as many chances as they need because God gives them endless chances. When you do this then you will know me and you will know true happiness and peace. Until then, you will never know who I really am. You will always be just a fan or a Sunday only warrior. You will continue to represent who you are to the world, but not me. I am the God that rescues.
Sometimes you have to look past a person?s mistakes to see God?s presence.
Stupid quotes are only Twitters in disguise.
The clock ticks; the taunting rhythm serving as a reminder that forward is the only way we can go. The mechanical heartbeat of the darkness, a cold ellipsis, punctuating years gone by. Arising unchained. No glorious hymn, just the steady beat of the illusion of time. We heal or we carry forward the weight of our wounds... To believe otherwise is the mendacity of desperation. Arising honestly. The miles behind are littered with the weight of nostalgia, but too many miles lay ahead us to carry the weight. In the end, even echoes fade away. Pen in hand... Arising to write the next chapter.
The healthy should be reminded that we are all dying because it is through our own reminder of mortality that we accelerate our good intentions, into actions people can see.
The most beautiful women in the world are the ones that can stand as rivals on the battlefield of love, yet they can still see each other?s pain. They can set down their swords for only just a moment to acknowledge the beauty of the warrior that stands before them?the passion, the fearlessness and the relentless fire that never gives up. It is in this moment that we learn that it is not the man that sees the worth of the hearts torn by battle in his honor; it is the women who have suffered for so long. Two women that can see clearly the worth of the other, even while they grow weary from their wounds is the only kind of beauty that matters. For if there wasn?t two worthy opponents there would be no war in love.
