Never allow someone or something that adds very little to your life, to control so much of it.
Reading this quote for the first time, I was thinking, who would even do this, but then I realized, we all do this, and it starts at a very young age. We want, no, we crave approval of others, and we’ll do a lot to get it. As teenagers, we try and wear the right kind of clothing or date the “right” people in order to gain acceptance from the “cool” crowd. The same in college only this time it may be we drink too much or use drugs or have meaningless hookups to get into the right fraternity or sorority…and no, I’m not saying all fraternities or sororities condone behavior like this. In adulthood, we may get caught up in a “keep up with the Jones” type of thing with our neighbors. But why? In the long run, how important are these people to who we are inside. If you look at it honestly, they’re only as important as we make them. Why allow them to control our lives. Why let them in at all? If they’re supposed to be a part of your life, it’s going to happen naturally and on terms that work for both of you.

I am not who I am because of the things I have learned, but because of the things that I have overcome. – Tamara Baruhovich
I’m going to be honest…I disagree with this quote on some levels. I totally agree that the things in our lives that we have to fight against, or overcome play a HUGE roll in making us the people we are today. But I also totally believe that in my live, I have learned things that have helped me to overcome the struggles I face. Also we learn from the things we overcome. I am not, however who I am just from sitting in a classroom, or studying a book. Nobody is that one dimensional – at least I hope their not. Who we are today is a combination, or better yet, a compilation of so many different things. And who I am tomorrow is going to be based in large part upon what I learned today, and what I achieved today, and what knocked me down today.
Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.- Rick Warren
Humility is not a word you hear every day, or even every other day. It’s a modest or low view of one’s own importance; humbleness. I shared the definition because many of us think we have humility, when in fact, what we have is a low self-esteem. I think we tend to think of ourselves all the time, but at the same time, we think horribly thoughts about ourselves. We need to remember that we are pretty awesome people and we have a lot of amazing characteristics, but we also need to practice putting others first. It’s kind of a tightrope that we have to walk. It’s important to know our own self-worth and recognize the fact that we are pretty great, but at the same time, that shouldn’t be our raison d’etre. So try to limit the negative self talk, but focus your energies on others.
Happiness is not about having or not having problems. Everyone has problems but not everyone is unhappy. –Mickey Mouse
In case you haven’t noticed before, I’m a huge Disney fan, and I absolutely love Disney quotes. And yes, even though Mickey’s quote was written by a actual living human being, it was said by the mouse himself, and so he gets the credit. Anyhow, enough of my Disney related ramblings and on to the quote. I kind of love this quote – a LOT. We all have problems, I honestly cannot think of anybody I know that does not have one problem or another in their life. Some of those people are far happier than others. It’s because they don’t allow their problems to take over their life. You usually don’t have a choice about the problems in your life (and isn’t that a shame) but you do have a choice about being happy. Yes, your problems can, and probably do suck – I’m not going to judge anybody on that. I think mine kind of suck too, but guess what – I’m still a pretty happy person because I look for, and find happiness all around me. Sadly, it’s not been at the House of Mouse for several years, but that’s okay too. I’ll take my happiness where I can find it and use it to make my problems more palatable.
For us to regard others as worthy, we have to begin by regarding ourselves as worthy.? Stephen Richards
I know I’m showing my age with the title, but I couldn’t resist!, nor could I resist this: Gif from giphy.com
Now let’s get serious and talk about the quote, lol. I don’t want to focus on the regarding others as worthy as much as I want to talk about regarding ourselves as worthy. Most of us don’t think very much of ourselves. We may talk a good game about ourselves, and maybe even brag a little, but when push comes to shove, we beat ourselves up and belittle ourselves on a regular basis. And honestly, I don’t know why. One would think we’d be our own biggest cheerleaders, but we’re not. If there is an anti cheerleader, when it comes to ourselves, that’s what we are. I want you to try something. The next time you catch yourself making negative self-statements, just stop and instead say 3 positive self statements. Instead of “I can’t believe I did that, I’m so stupid,” try “I’m an intelligent person,” or “I make good decisions,” or “I think outside the box.” Try it, because contrary to what Wayne and Garth are saying, you are indeed very, very worthy!

Happiness isn’t what you find at the end of the road. It’s right here. Right now. — Unknown
I was talking with someone the other day about being happy, and what being happy felt like. I said that contrary to what people may say, happiness isn’t all sunshine, butterflies, rainbows and unicorns. Happiness is what’s going on around us right now. I asked them to tell me something good about their day, and they did. They actually had several really great things that had happened that day, and they told me how good those things made them feel. I told them that to me, that is happiness. It’s not the bunnies gamboling across a field of green. It’s not that mythical someday. Happiness is right now, and it’s all around us. We just need to open our eyes and recognize it.
Everything I do, I do to make my heart sing. ~ Michael E. Angier
What do you do that gives you joy? When I came across this quote, I liked it and thought this would be an easy blog post to write, but guess what, it isn’t. In fact, it’s pretty darn hard. I thought I did all sorts of things that make my heart sing and fill me with joy, but I really don’t. I don’t know that any of us really do. Sure I do things that make me happy. I enjoy reading, and spending time with friends, and of course my kids. Those are all things that make me happy. Happiness is good, but joy is even better. Don’t think I’m downplaying happiness, because I’m not. Happiness is awesome and I hope everybody is happy! But happiness isn’t joy. I think joy comes when we stop thinking about ourselves. It can come when you’re giving of yourself completely to help somebody else, or it can come when you’re sitting in a field watching a bird take flight. It can be found when you’re watching the awesome power of a thunderstorm, or skiing down a mountain. I think that’s when you experience real joy and your heart sings, when you stop thinking about yourself and you just are.
Don’t be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated; you can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps. – David Lloyd George
We’ve all heard the expression, take a leap of faith, and while it’s hard to do, sometimes it’s the only option. When I was really young, there was a daredevil called Evel Knievel, and one of his stunts was to try and jump across Snake River Canyon on his motorcycle. I’m quite sure that when he was planning that jump, he didn’t say, “Well, I’ll try and jump halfway across and from there, finish it out.” That wouldn’t have worked and he would have ended up in the river. He went out all out made the one giant leap. There are lots of times in life where you have to make that one big giant step when everything in you is saying don’t go all out. Be bold, be daring, be courageous and take that leap. You have no idea what amazing things could be waiting for you on the other side!
