Goals are to us as fuel to an ignition. It lights our flame. It gives us something to aim for while we live our lives. It may not always be smooth sailing for there will always be bumps on the road. Life will always hand us a few disappointments here or there. We may feel discouraged with all the stumbles and falls, but we have to keep going. We have to keep striving for our goals and objectives.
If things were handed to you, how would you appreciate them? How would you make the most out of them if you did not work hard enough to achieve them? You probably would not have learned anything from them. Most likely you remained in the same spot and without growth.
We have to keep going even when it seems so hard. As Confucius once said “When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” Change your plan. Find another route to your desired destination. Life is full of obstacles, heartaches, disturbances. Things we deal with daily that make us feel hopeless. We encounter all kinds of people that are insolent, unprofessional, egotistic or that might take advantage of our caring nature.
You have to stay strong. Don’t let them defeat you! Don’t listen to anyone’s voice but your own. The same way we can choose our reaction to counterattack we can choose the reaction to not be bothered with. Some people just want to press our buttons, but our peace of mind is far greater! Keep going, it is your Journey!
Not all our days will be the same… Some days may not have a good outcome. Some people may not have been truthful to you…
There will be days when you won’t feel the love… Or days when the things you wanted most might not happen… We don’t always get everything we want right away….. But do you know what?
Every day we get a new chance to start over with new expectations and throughout the day, we gain experience and grow as a person. A bad day will not define who you are! It is just a bad day and tomorrow will be better! Just breathe and remember, tomorrow is another day to start over with new possibilities! ❤️
It is a beautiful day while I take a break before starting home schooling lessons on our three kids. It is not easy, especially with a Special Needs child that needs an added incentive to do his best! He is very smart but at the same time he sabotages himself by not doing more but we can only do our best and decided not to put too much pressure on him. We do our best explaining to him the steps and even work together, but some days when he wakes up, and he’s not feeling it, then there’s not enough requests and trade-offs that will make him do his work… So, we just give him his space and when he sees his siblings having fun doing their work, he comes around. Sometimes he does work that is not for him and we are ecstatic by that! Thankfully, every day is not the same! We all do not learn the same… To anyone going through this, “don’t give up”! Do what you can! There is always tomorrow for another chance…
To have this instead of that… Or that instead of this!
Make the choice that you can live with. You decide!
No matter which choice you make, there will always be someone who won’t like it. There will always be someone who will talk behind your back or judge you by your choices. They might even doubt your abilities but you have to be like the stream, and keep going. Keep choosing wisely! Ultimately, your happiness depends on it!
It’s amazing on what you come up with while drinking coffee:
Many times, we get stuck wondering about situations and the people that crossed our path. We put too much pressure on others and their actions or non-actions that it consumes most of our energy and time.
Do not do that to yourself. Just let things be. Let people go if you must or give them space to sort their own things. We are all dealing with our own issues and situations, and the last thing we want is to feel pressured into something we still have not sorted out on our own.
In this terrible time, all that people want is a little patience and acceptance, because time, we all have right now. Don’t fight for closure or even ask for explanations. People might not be in the same place as you and they might not understand your point of view, but if you give them time and space, they might come around and let you in to their world. Focus on yourself and what you have going on, so you don’t fall into the chase mode.
You must do what is right for your soul, because no one knows you better like you know yourself. ❤️
Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mothers and everyone that is playing the role of a mother day in and day out! A mother is someone who loves unconditionally and that puts others first and their selves last.
This year a little different. During all this uncertainty, let us all be safe. In times like these that we all must stick together and see the big picture and find something more positive out of it… We have more time to spend with our family. With all this rushing and busyness, homeschooling the kids, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and frustrated, but we can only do what we can. Do not put pressure on yourself…just take it one day at a time. Soon, things will normalize but until then, stay safe!
