This just in.
I AM IN CONTROL OF MY LIFE! IF I WANT SOMETHING - I HAVE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. - this may seem obvious to you. but it is not always so clear and simple for me. sometimes I think my life will just HAPPEN. or just CHANGE & be exactly how I want it to be.. without having to really DO anything about it. One roadblock I often face is Fear. Fear is my most loyal 'friend' - that I cant Get RID of. Its like HElloooo Feeeear -I said I was over you - so be a nice little bugger and GO THE F away! wink wink.kthxbye.
“In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”.... is this why I don't have washboard abs? I mean, I dream big & I have sweetness goals.. but apparently I have to do little things EVERYDAY to make my goals a reality.... crap - what a set back.
ALSO Did you know!? IF I FEEL cranky OR IN A BAD MOOD - I HAVE the POWER TO MAKE IT BETTER...I'm not even joking. according to some smart ppl - if I feel like UGH or ICK or even FML!!! I can talk myself through it and choose to be happy, positive & UN-Ugh!..I can force myself to OWN it even when all emotions are telling me to do otherwise. (ok this one I know is true. I try to practice it on the regular).
and one more for the road...
“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.”
