Earlier this week, a friend of mine told me the history of a cancer survivor. While that young woman has been through a huge amount of emotional and physical challenges, she has been able to live her life with optimism, while inspiring others.
That made me think about why some people are just like that. Which qualities do they carry that can turn their odds around, and make things work?
I listed 10, but maybe there are many more. Nevertheless, how wonderful would be to follow this girl’s lead and carry every life hurdles like a champion?
What we tell ourselves is as important as our actions. Everything is energy, and we craft our lives with the thoughts we have. Our opinions are the food to our soul.
My kindergarten teachers and my parents taught me to be generous to my friends, use the golden rule with everyone, and play nice in the sandbox. I am still trying my best to apply this practice in my daily routine consistently.
I know I am supposed to be kind to others, but am I being generous to myself?
When we think about something, embrace a specific emotion, or take action, consciously or not, we are making a choice. That means, when we say Yes to something, we are saying No to other options.
Today I was thinking about how many things I say Yes in my day, as I take better care of my health. The choices I have been making about food, exercise, sleep are directly aligned with my intent of feeling better in the long run.
