FOR A HAPPY
FOR A HAPPY
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST
If you are always rushing off to help others at the drop of a text and do not go to your gym,
Yoga class, PT, etc, you are helping others at your expense. You are putting yourself in jeopardy in the long run. Think about it. Your immune system is not functioning at a level to keep you from getting sick yourself. How many times have you helped others and come home not feeling well?
LOVE YOUR SELF
Speaking from my own experiences, there are some I am proud of and some I am not happy to have gone through. However, I am grateful to have gone through both the good and the not so good for it has brought me to this place where I am happy and contented with who I have become.
If you are not satisfied with who you are, only you can change it. Forgive everyone from your heart - - - especially yourself. Seek professional help if you need it. Listen to your inner voice that tells you “this person is someone I can trust to be the right one for me”
BE WARY OF YOUR TONGUE
Once something is said, it cannot be taken back. I have suffered with foot in mouth
disease for many years. I keep a copy of the following statement in prominent places:
H Is it helpful
I Is it InspiringN Is it necessary
K Is it kind?
I try to remember these words now before I speak. In his autobiography, OPEN, AndreAgassi quotes Nelson Mandala saying that ‘every journey is important, and that no journey is impossible. It is time for us to grow up. If we live in the past or in the future, we miss the journey. Each moment is the only moment that counts. Savor it, love it, pass it on.
AND IN THE END:
Honor ourselves, for we have done our work.
Honor each other, for with others we enhance our learning.
Honor all our teachers, for everyone touches us in a unique way.
Finally, we honor all their learning, for from their wisdom comes our insight.
