What Life Would Be Like If We Live More Like Water?

 

Be Water

No matter what form water takes, it is still water. Water is present everywhere and it enjoys each and every moment. This is why I often wonder what life would be like if we live more like water.

For example:

  • Water goes around any obstacle that’s in its way.
  • Water doesn’t stop to argue, it has no time
  • Water goes with the flow, it is adaptable
  • Water is gentle and easy
  • Water has its own kind of power 

Nothing can stop water from flowing – nothing at all.

Just like water, let us not allow obstacles to stop us from moving forward. Let us find ways to go around our obstacles and pursue the desires of our hearts.

Water has no time to stop and argue. It just continues flowing without any disturbances. Just like water, let us not argue. Instead, let us walk away from arguments. Getting involve in arguments is a total waste of valuable time.

How about going with the flow? Let us not complicate our lives by overthinking or dwelling on the past. Let us keep on going with the flow, just like water.

Water is gentle and easy.  Let us maintain a gentle and easy spirit, just like water.

Water is powerful. You have your own kind of power,  just like water. That power is within you. Just search deep down within your soul and you shall find it.

Now, can you imagine what life would be like if we:

  • find ways around our obstacles
  • stop arguing
  • stop overthinking
  • have a gentle spirit
  • utilize our power

and live more like water? Imagine it…

Follow these 3 Simple Tips to Improve Your Self Esteem

Are you really suffering from low self-esteem? Feeling good about ourselves is something no one can give to us. They can help, but it is up to us to do the rest.

It’s really heartbreaking to know that in this time and age, people still believe that they are not good enough and still feel sorry for themselves.

Anyhow,  if you are suffering from low self-esteem, cheer up! Here are 3 simple tips to help you improve your self-esteem.

1.  Visualize Colorful Thoughts

Yep! Stop having dark and dull thoughts!

We spend a consumable amount of time having thoughts about ourselves that are not true.

Dark, dull, cloudy, and stormy thoughts.

To illustrate:

low self esteem

Someone like me? So what is wrong with you that makes it so unbelievable that he wants to date you?

Research reveals that the words and sentences we use when referring to ourselves are positive signs of low-self esteem.

Stop having dark thoughts about yourself.  Starting right now! Think beautiful, cheerful, and enlightening thoughts.

For example, feel the difference below using the same images above:

high self esteem (1)

Visualize colorful thoughts. It’s healthier to have beautiful thoughts. You will enjoy life better!

2.  Start Saying No Without Feeling Guilty

Individuals suffering from low-self esteem tend to give away too many yeses. Learn to say no, and mean it.

no

Saying no does not stop people from liking you. Furthermore, people love to take advantage of “yes-persons.”

Don’t get this twisted now. Genuinely helping someone is completely different from always saying yes.  Saying yes to everything someone asks you to do means that you are not doing it to be helpful but rather to be accepted.

To build your self-esteem don’t agree to things that you do not enjoy doing. Start saying no, and when you do, don’t feel guilty!

3.  Save Your Apologies

Imagine this…

You are in the supermarket, you need to ask a question, you approach the cashier, and the first two words are:

no (1)

 

Why are you apologizing to ask a question? You haven’t done anything to be sorry for.  Low self-esteem people tend to apologize for everything, wrong and right.

While apologies are important, do not use them inappropriately. To build your self-esteem, stop apologizing over excessively. Save your apologies for when you make a mistake that is deserving of an apology.

Remember to build your self-esteem, you must:

  1. have colorful thoughts
  2.  start saying no, without feeling guilty
  3.  stop apologizing for nothing

Wise Ethical Choices And You

Wise Ethical Choices

Do you consider yourself to be an ethical person? Do your speech, behavior, and action promote good ethics? Do you make wise ethical choices?

Ethical Choices

Who Is An Ethical Person?

An ethical person is someone who can differentiate between right from wrong, honest from dishonest, fair from unfair, and acts accordingly.

Without a doubt, we all do our best to be ethical people, but sometimes we falter and make unwise ethical choices. But heck, we are just humans, isn’t it?

However, not because we are imperfect people, we are going to run around acting carelessly or go about making unwise decisions. Not at all!

Bear in mind that we are responsible for own ethical choices, and we should exercise these choices with empathy.

How Should We Act?

Therefore, let us demonstrate in our conduct respect for each other and make sure that our opinions and our feelings are always truthful and honest.

In fact, let us promote ethical living through the choices we make each day and make Continue reading Wise Ethical Choices And You

Who Are Your Friends?

Receive your blessings

It is 2018 and it is time to expand your circle of friends! While expanding, make sure that you stick close to people with BIG ideas;  they will raise your level of thinking!

Do you agree?

Does Your Choice of Friends Represents Who You Are?

If you are a sheep and you live in a pig pen, does it mean that you are a pig? Would you behave like a pig? Eat like a pig? And wobble in the mud like a pig?
Now tell me, is this saying “show me your company and I’ll tell you who you are,” true?
Sometimes we will we find ourselves in the company of people that others believe are “not good enough.” But this does not mean that we are “not good enough” because we can be in their company for a purpose.
As for me, I am always surrounded by people whose behavior and lifestyle is out of order. This does not mean that I have a disorderly conduct.
When I am with them, I use my voice of inspiration to help them make a positive change. After all, they are the ones, who need inspiration and motivation the most.
Let us not assume or judge anyone because of their choice of friends. A person choice of friends does not always represent the person they are.
What do you think?

NEVER STOP PUSHING

meditation-1087851_640

You want to change your life for the better, so you have decided to make a radical change. A change that will transform your life in a positive way. You believe that your time has come…it’s now your time to shine.

What Did You Do?

You shared your intentions with some friends and family members.  They told you it would not work, and that it’s a bad idea. They even went as far to tell you that you were too old and you would not make it. Or maybe they tried to persuade you to wait because you were young and still has time. You became fearful, thinking that maybe they were right. So you played with your thoughts, you became troubled and kept wondering what to do. Continue reading NEVER STOP PUSHING

I Have the Guts To Be Who I Really Am, Do You?

real-talk-thursday-4

Every Thursday I randomly select a post to re-blog that deals with real issues. This week we join Martha as she speaks about who she really is. Please show her some love by visiting her blog, read and comment. Thank you as usual for your support.

Martha L Shaw - Poet, Writer, Author, Artist

Seriously, do you?  Do you really?  You don’t have to answer out loud.  Most people won’t.  I know.  I’ve spent most of my life being looked at strangely.  Why?  Because I don’t cavein.  Most people who have put me down made caving in and doing what others expected into an art form.

 I don’t much care if you think I’m ugly.  I don’t think I am.  I sure do not care if you think working hard is for fools.  Shoot, if that’s the definition of a fool, I’m proud of it.  As a kid, there were plenty of people my age running away from home.  I never even considered it.  I loved my family.  I had friends who were fun to be with.  Know what?  They loved my family as well.  They loved to be at my house. 

There were always people more popular…
