Everyday is a chance to be a better person. Every time you meet up with adversity is chance to be better. Sometimes it’s difficult, but great things in life always are. The three biggest things to me in being a good person, is love, compassion, and happiness. Love for others and yourself. The compassion to feel empathy for all life, and the love to help them. The happiness to give to others and to get through the difficult times.
Sometimes however it’s hard to find those things within yourself. Sometimes it’s because you’ve been hurt. Sometimes it’s because of depression. I just want to let you know if you feel that way, love, compassion, and happiness is all inside you. The key is inside your heart, and while it may be hard for some to unlock these things it’s possible for everyone.
All you have to do is put yourself out there, consciously take the time, and energy to imagine how others feel. Think about how you impact them. Think about the things in your life that you could do better for yourself and for those around you. Everyday begin to work on those things, talk to others about how they feel. Try to spend more time with your family and friends. Try to exercise more. Eat better. Find a job that helps support your ambition, and that makes you happy.
Success doesn’t happen instantly often. So don’t get discouraged if everything doesn’t instantly turn around. Just keep pushing and over time you will start to notice progressive changes in your life. Eventually after a bunch of small changes you will notice, you, your life, and the lives of those around you are significantly different. Love with your full heart, push forward everyday, positive thoughts build a positive future.
The collective of society tells us what we’re supposed to be, what we’re supposed to do. Our families our friends push onto us the ideals of who we are and what we can achieve.
However each one of us can be more. So often we allow other people to undermine our dreams and ambitions. We demotivate ourselves through out the today. We decide that things we can accomplish are too hard for us.
However that couldn’t be further from the truth. We are all capable of amazing things. We all have the ability to change the world. Before we can change the world though, we have to change ourselves.
If you want more you have to let go of self doubt. You have to make goals. You have to be persistent. You have to stay above negativity. You have to reach out and grab your dreams to turn them into reality. You have to set yourself free from what you think you are, what you think you can do.
Fight for your dreams.
Help those in need.
Set yourself free.
We’ve all been kids at one time of our life and there’s many that remember a joyous moment of coming down the stairs to find our #1 gift underneath a glowing tree. Everyone seems a little bit happier in the Western world as we celebrate good thoughts and people. We seem motivated to show how much we care about the people we love. Many of us take a extra minute to care a little bit more about others. We have great feasts with great people celebrating everything we’ve accomplished through the years, opening up sharing bit’s about ourselves that we never before would have felt comfortable enough to do. We even tell grand stories of a man who cares so much about the world he gives gifts to everyone whose been good for the year. In many ways it’s a very beautiful experience, in many other ways it’s a nightmare.
What I Hate.
I hate that we’ve deluded ourselves to believing this is a selfless holiday. While many woke up to presents even more woke up to nothing. Children in sweatshops forced to work long hours with wages that only amount to keeping them from starving to death. Corporations using media to endorse products that are harmful to individuals and society, to increase their profit margins. Developed nations purchasing precious stones and metals that endorse slave labor across the globe, because it’s “pretty”. How we’ve instilled a fear in children to be good or they won’t get presents, instead of teaching them to be good because it will make them feel good and become a better person. How we teach that it’s okay to lie to children. How we become so embellished in consumerism we forget about the producers. How we took a holiday that was meant to celebrate a man who helped give to the poor, and heal the sick, who was murdered for his ideologies, and turned it into a holiday where we make the rich richer and poor poorer.
