Don’t judge one another. You don’t know their story. You don’t know what they went through to get to here! Nor what they lost along the way or what they had to live without! Behind their smile is a sadness without limits. The kind that you live a whole life without being given the right recognition and value or being understood and accepted for who we are! The same way you are judging someone will be judging you! The only one who can truly judge is our highest force!
In life, we all have dreams! We all have hopes and desires of things we want to do with our lives!
There will always be people that will interfere and dissuade you
into doing what you love to do! Even unforeseen situations and misfortune can happen to break you, be strong and stay focused! It all can be your turning point to make you! Behind adversity comes prosperity!
Remember that dreams do come true, if only you stay fixated on your dreams and stay clear of all the pessimism!
You were born to excel! Inside of you are gifts and aptitudes that no one else in the world has awaiting to come out! Search within your soul to see what gives you so much joy to do, then take the next step of action but always believe that you can. Anything is possible if you only have faith!
One day a 6 year old girl was sitting in the classroom.
The teacher was going to explain evolution to the children.
The teacher asked a little boy:
Teacher: Tommy do you see the tree out side?
Teacher: Tommy, do you see the grass out side?
Teacher: Go out side and look up and see if you can see the sky.
Tommy: OK. (He returned a few minutes later) Yes, I saw the sky.
Teacher: Did you see God?
Teacher: That’s my point. We can’t see God because he isn’t there.
The little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions. Teacher agreed and she asked the boy:
Little Girl: Tommy, do you see the tree outside?
Little girl: Tommy do you see the grass outside?
Tommy: Yessssss (getting tired of the questions by this time)
Little girl: Did you see the sky?
Little Girl: Tommy, do you see the teacher?
Little Girl: Do you see her brain?
Little Girl: Then according to what we were taught today in school, she must not have one!
One of the final things that people lying on their deathbed say is “they wish they had more time to live!” They live with regret, not for doing the things they did, but for the things they didn’t! Our life is a magical time! It is a time for taking risks, for spending time with those we love, for doing things that we love, for correcting wrong doings, for making amends! For living and experiencing! Sure we are going to have our downfalls, hurts, frustrations but that’s how we learn and what takes us to the next level so we can grow!
If it is possible … let’s return to a time where there were no worries. No responsibilities. Where everyone treated each other as the best of friends. To a time, where there were no bad moments, only unforgettable ones. Where the swings were always near, almost at every corner. All the moments were spent playing hide and seek. Especially because we always found a hiding place with ease. Even under a chair.
Rules were made to be broken. Unless it was for a game we wanted to play, and whoever cheated, would never be able to escape without being caught. For that we were attentive. We can talk to all people, even strangers. Here, in our little world, we all knew each other.
We were never taught not to talk to strangers. That they are all good people. And woe to us, if the next door neighbor complained that we did not greet them. We would get it. And often it was not enough.
But … we survived all this. We lived in a period of Uncle Scrooge and Mickey Mouse, or even Topogiggio or Heidi’s world. The television was all ours on the weekend mornings. It was almost as if it was sacred. The chewing gums were of all colors and flavors (why not ?!) We would play ball, and sometimes even break the windows. Ice cream was eaten until the belly hurt. Every kid who knew someone from the block was soon in the group. Played with everyone with no discrimination. We fell many times and always got up. If there was any fight, a few minutes later, we would forget.
In those times, we were all friends. The lunch that was taken to the school, could be shared with others. It was a party! No list of foods that could not be taken to school. Playground was just for racing. Always to see who ran faster. Sometimes there was always time for the Cops and the Thieves. The problem was always choosing who would be the bad guy, which really no one wanted to be! Decisions were always settled with a toss of a coin …
In those times, everything was so pure. No one thought of girls or boys. Sometimes … they were the enemies. Throw the rope until it falls. In the snow, the glitter in our eyes came from thinking about all the snow angels and snow man we can build. Even if we caught the flu, it was nothing that a little hot chocolate could not cure or a kiss from the parents. In this world, there was no time to hurry. Everything happened calmly. We arrived where we had to arrive … when we arrived. Often, we always wanted to be bigger … but there was always time to play. To draw. Smile. Laugh.
We lived. We made a joke of it all. Our biggest problem was whether we would be accepted by our colleagues, and even if it were that we were not accepted by others – we would continue on our journey. That was not what would make us sad!We were strong. Now, withholding our toys, no! Not letting us go out and play, it was almost as if they took the most important thing from us…There were no cell phones or ipads or computers. There was only sunshine and playing outside. Guess what? We did not die! We lived!
It doesn’t matter if it’s cold or hot outside, or if it’s raining or sunny, what matters is that you’re alive! You received another day to get up and do something that really counts to make you happy!
Life is too precious! Life is also too short to do anything but live! Is that hockey game really going to bring you closer to your goals? Will you really be happy buying one more vase when you already have a dozen of them? Is not doing anything really in your best interest when you know you have a ton of things to do and the clock keeps on ticking away?
What you decide to do or not do is up to you. You have the same amount of time that everyone else has, 24 hours and yet it seems like there’s not enough hours in the day to get things done. Life is a miracle. We are all miracles! We are here today, without knowing if we will be here tomorrow and yet we live like there’s no tomorrow, allowing life to pass us by. One day, five years will pass by, and then ten years will go by, before you know it many more will follow. What did we accomplish if we really did not take the appropriate actions to make our dreams come true? Nothing ever comes easy without the hard work in the equation. Unless you know you are up for an inheritance or that you will dream of the winning numbers of your local lottery, you probably most likely have to win the game with your hard work, willingness, determination, focus, perseverance and of course your action to do all of the above and more.
Today is your chance. Today is a gift! It doesn’t matter if you have a Degree only, if you don’t do the work needed to get to where you want. Imagine what you can do with that degree and more… The Sky is the Limit with your ACTIONS. Treat each day with extra care. Do the things you know you have to do first to get you closer. It’s only time wasted when there’s nothing to learn.
