Motivational Monday #30

Something I have learned over the past several years.  I have always been good at putting up walls around my heart.  When I stopped, I was happier – I had more giggles and welcomed people into my life more.  But doing so means you will feel more.  And when I start feeling more, I have to remind myself of this quote.  I have to remind myself that I cannot put the walls back up with sacrificing happy.

Saw this on Wayward Celt’s tumblr. I like it.  I think it is important to remember that even when things seem bleak, there is always hope.  You just have to wake up and see it.

I like this because it rejects this idea that alone you are incomplete.  We find love when we find someone who accepts us as we are.  Whether it be a friend or a lover, acceptance of us – celebration of us as a person – is the greatest connection we can make with a person.  Because we are complete on our own.  People may bring things out in us – for better or worse – but they do not complete us.

Don’t let what you worry about – what you fear – take control of your life.  It’s not a way to live – in worry and fear.

Happy Monday!

    Haha, that last one is how I feel most of the time.

    Thanks for sharing that, you made my day.

  2. I like the 1st one and especially the one about things that worry you. Its so very easy to let yourself be bogged down with worry.

What do you think?
