I finally give up ๐Ÿ™

“I want to announce to everything and everyone who exists that I here now proclaim my determination to release my resistance once and for all.

I give up. I give up, I give up, I give up. I give up my control of the uncontrollable. I give up my determination to make things better for others.

I give up my attention to things that bother me. I give up my trying so hard. I give up my struggle. I give up my confounding confusion. I give up my excuse for negative emotion.

I am giving up my excuses. I am giving up my statements of what is not working. I give up.

Abraham Hicks

No matter how hopeless and hard it might seem, you CAN feel better again

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

– Helen Keller

Ok, so life has been hard on you? Someone hurt you? You lost someone you love? You lost everything that mattered to you? No matter what happened to you or how bad it feels, you can do something about how you feel, and that will make all the difference in what you attract from here on.

Of course it is easier to just feel sorry for yourself, complain and remain in your negative doubt – but that attitude will just keep you stuck in your misery! Improvements come when you let go of your old ways of thinking and you embrace a more hopeful way of thinking, regarding all topics.

What happened has already happened, your negative attitude about it will only prolong your pain. You can feel better, no matter how hopeless and hard it might seem. All it takes is a willingness to feel better and a choice to stop beating yourself up with that negative attitude of yours. The only one you truly hurt with your resentment is yourself, the only life you ruin with your complaining is your own.

A change in your attitude, in the thoughts you choose, about everything, will bring on a change in your emotional state. When you have achieved an improved emotional state – what you attract to yourself will improve as well. ๐ŸŒน

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

Helen Keller

We are all beautiful diamonds, but some of us don’t realize it yet ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒบ

Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without one.”

Chinese Proverb

Actually, we are all diamonds but some of us don’t realize it yet. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒผ

We are all living, breathing beings with life force itself coursing through our bodies. The very fact that you are alive is enough to know that you are loved and adored by all that is.

You need not prove your worthiness, you need not feel ashamed of your mistakes or try to hide your “flaws”. There is not one single being on the planet who looks exactly like you and think and feel exactly like you. There is no other person on the planet with the exact same beliefs and desires as you – you are so unique in all that you are. A diamond indeed. ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒน You, as much as everyone else, deserve your own love and affection. ๐Ÿ™

A difficult life can make you stronger, happier and more in love with life ๐Ÿ™

Do not pray for an easy life. Pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.”

– Bruce Lee

What if everything you went through is of value? What if everything has unfolded just perfectly because it all contributed to you finding your inner strenght, unconditionally?

Because of all you have been through, you are free to have fun, laugh and love even if there is darkness all around you. When most people would bow their heads down in sorrow, when most people would be in such despair they are willing to give up – you stand firmly on your solid foundation with your heart beating peacefully and your mind full of hope. ๐Ÿ™

It is ok to break down, it is ok to fall apart and it is ok to be an angry old toad sometimes ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‚

Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”
– Chinese Proverb

Yes, it feels really hard sometimes. There are times when everything feels wrong and everyone annoys you. But, it is not of any value to complain, point out flaws or feel sorry for yourself. Be the one who chooses to light a candle instead of cursing the darkness. At least stop voicing your complaints and start thinking about how you would like to feel next time you are in a similar situation. To prepave the situation with a better-feeling emotional response will make it more likely that you can handle the situation better next time.

But be kind to yourself. ๐Ÿ™ It is ok to break down, it is ok to fall apart and it is ok to be an angry old toad sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Allow yourself to laugh at yourself, to find humor in your negativity and let it pass through your body and mind as easily as the wind blows through the leaves. ๐Ÿ™

You have a beautiful, empowering and freeing choice to make โ˜€๏ธ

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

โ€“ Chinese Proverb

All the mistakes you have made in your life, all the wrong paths you have taken and all the negative experiences you have been through need not affect your present or your future. It is easy to get caught up in shame, blame and insecurites when you keep bringing up the past. However, that was then – this is now. You still have a beautiful, empowering and freeing choice in each new moment – how do you want to feel NOW? And that has to be unconditional. ๐ŸŒผ

Now is where all your power is. You can change your entire life, and you can begin now. Make peace with what was, accept what you cannot change and embrace this new moment by allowing yourself to feel better, unconditionally.

When you have been brutally broken by life and yet you rise up and find your inner peace ๐ŸŒฑ

It is easy to be happy when life is good. It is easy to call yourself strong when life is smooth and easy. But true strenght is when time after time you have been brutally broken by life and you have been totally stripped of all your joys and passions, and yet you rise up and find your inner peace once again. That is strenght and that is inspiring. ๐ŸŒฑ

You are not limited by this body, you are eternal life without boundaries

This body is not me.
I am not limited by this body.
I am life without boundaries.
I have never been born,
and I have never died.

Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars,
manifestations from my wondrous true mind.

Since before time, I have been free.
Birth and death are only doors through which we pass,
sacred thresholds on our journey.
Birth and death are a game of hide- and seek.

So laugh with me,
hold my hand,
let us say good-bye,
say good-bye, to meet again soon.

We meet today.
We will meet again tomorrow.
We will meet at the source every moment.
We meet each other in all forms of life.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Turn the other cheek – forgive unconditionally ๐Ÿ™

Have faith in that what ever happens, you can handle it. Trust that this too shall pass and that everything will be alright. Believe in the goodness in everyone, and choose to be the one who forgives unconditionally.

Turn the other cheek really doesn’t have to mean letting them beat you up or letting them have their way with you – to me it means to forgive unconditionally, letting to of all hatred, condemnation and criticism – finding it in your heart to love unconditionally, and at the same time following your heart and moving away from what doesn’t serve you.

We are all good people who are trying the best we can, given the circumstances, experiences, beliefs and desires we have. Hatred only creates more hatred, to forgive unconditionally and to love unconditionally will set you free. ๐Ÿ™

Your empowerment grows from all your insecurities

There is something beautiful and life-giving in chaos. Something valuable and reliefgiving in hitting rock bottom. There is no other place where you ask more clearly for what you truly desire, no other place where your wish is more intense – and if you can handle that, you can handle anything!

Strenght is built on weakness, happiness flourishes from sadness and your empowerment grows from all your insecurities.

There truly is value in everything, and no matter how dark it might seem at the moment – you can grow stronger and happier because of this!
