Regrets

This is a great read by PositiveMed that I’m sharing. One of the ways of staying healthy and living happy is to make better choices for ourselves. After my surgery for my illness hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease, I made it my business to learn how to handle stressful situations and not allowing stressful people and or things get to me.  In this read it talks about our choices we make that later may come back to haunt us, in the form of regrets. This emotion regret is a negative conscious and emotional reaction to personal past acts and behaviors. Wishing we would have done things differently, blaming ourselves for bad outcomes. 

Regrets will keep us trapped in the past, ignoring the present. Hold us back from taking chances. Keeping us blaming ourselves for mistakes that we made, when in the end of it all no one is perfect but God. I think the best way to cope with them would be to accept, if you have any, learn and move forward with your life. 

 

 

10 Choices You Will Regret In 10 Years

Regret is often the bitterest pill to swallow, and regret is a painful emotion that often gets worse over time, rather than better. To avoid feeling regret someday, here are ways to steer clear of this destructive mental state:

10 Choices You Will Regret In 10 Years

1. Don’t let someone else dictate your dreams. In order to live a full and happy life, you have to be authentically you. Never allow someone else to tell you what career path to follow, or whom to love. Allow yourself to know what you enjoy and what makes you happy, and then make sure you are free to do so. Don’t be afraid of being misunderstood by others – the only person that really needs to understand what you are doing is you.

2. Be careful of the company you keep. Even if you aren’t worried about losing your reputation by surrounding yourself by bad people, negative people they will inevitably be a negative influence on your spirits. Instead, open your life and make room for the people who make you feel good about yourself, your life and goals and who will be a positive influence.

3. Stop faking it. You should never have to hide your true self in this world, especially if it is to make others think better of you. Being authentic to yourself allows you to fully enrich all aspects of your personality.

4. Keep growing. Learn something new, however small, every day. This keeps you from missing out on new opportunities.

5. Never give up. Learn to see set-backs as lessons, not failures and use the lesson to grow.

6. Be kind, Always. The most painful regrets often involve critical words, ego clashes or selfishness. Remember that kindness is what makes people missed, not cruelty.

7. Don’t procrastinate – It goes faster than you think. Never assume you have an unlimited number of tomorrows. Get started on your dreams now!

8. Take responsibility. Be an adult, admit your faults and weaknesses, and make the changes to get your life and maturity in order.

9. Don’t settle. If you know you deserve better, move on. Period.

10. Let the little things slide. There are enough big problems in this world. Don’t borrow worry.


In life we all are faced with regrets some linger, some go away after time. Look at yourself lovingly and turn things around. Embrace your mistakes and know you are not perfect. 🌸Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week.🌸

Opportunities🌼

A new day signifies a new begining; don’t sit there and let that opportunity pass you by. Accept the each new day and make it better than yesterday. Because yesterday doesn’t matter as much as today does. Focus on the day ahead and make it a day to remember not a day to regret

Life Lessons

Life never stops moving forward. Stay focused and never slow down because of regrets. Smile, forgive, forget and move on.

No matter what happens and anything we go through, Life doesn’t wait for any of us to catch up. When you things don’t go your way or anything bad happens, don’t lose your focus over any should have, would have, and or could have. Pray and pick yourself up and let that light a “Fire” under you to get busy and continue moving Forward! Let the situation or whatever happened to be a learned lesson. Prayer always works along with moving on.

Use It To Make You Stronger!

Pain can be a gift. Anything that tries to bring you down, that hurts, use it as fuel, use it make you a stronger person.

Sometimes situations that bring us pain like death, illness, any major life changes, things and or ones that hurt us the most can be a Blessing. Sometimes it takes us to go through something major to get where God wanted us to be or to be doing. We turn things around by using it in a positive way to move forward and get what was intended for us. We can use it to become stronger and wiser. I have had many personal life experiences that have sparked a fire in me to do better and go for more. Which have pushed me to go hard and by reaching my goals I have set for myself.

Getting Through Hard Times

Hi Everyone! I am sharing another great read by Marc and Angel Hack Life. Hope you enjoy!

1. Accepting Life’s Challenges
“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”
–Randy Pausch

In every life there are great challenges, and in every challenge there are great doses of life to be lived.

Whether you judge a challenge to be a problem or an opportunity says more about you than about the challenge itself. The way you choose to see the world is the way your world will be. This is what gives life its magic; it’s a continuous, dynamic phenomenon that becomes exactly what you choose to make it.

Do something extraordinary. Accept life’s opportunities. Realize that if you never step up to a challenge that’s a bit over your head, you’ll never know how tall you truly are. Rise to each challenge and continue adding value to the ever-growing possibilities that await your brilliance.

2. Working Hard
“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.” –Beverly Sills
When you’re young you have this fantasy that super successful adults – writers, musicians, doctors, businessmen, etc. – have some kind of magical chest of tools allowing them to build masterpieces that are larger than life. You fanaticize about a hammer of creativity, a pliers of efficiency, a saw of wisdom, and so on and so forth.

But then you grow up and you realize, for the most part, everyone is working with the same set of imperfect, rusty, old tools – desire, commitment, honesty, kindness, love, persistence, etc. And as flawed and bent as they may be, they work wonders against the odds when you truly put them to the test. Read The Success Principles.

3. Choosing Wisely
“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” –J.K. Rowling

The universe – people, books, life experience, etc. – can only give you good advice, but you ultimately decide what to do with it.

Life is ticking away every second. The worst thing is spending your entire life drowning slowly and not being able to convince yourself that you are in full control, and that you can easily save yourself by simply standing up.

This is your life, made up entirely of your choices, your actions, your thoughts, your relationships, etc. Someday you will either decide to save yourself or remain unsaved forever.

4. Growing from Problems
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” –Friedrich Nietzsche

Times of great difficulty are times of great opportunity. These times may not seem ideal at first, but they usually provide keen insight into ideas of great value. When you are surrounded by problems, you are simultaneously given an opportunity to provide valuable solutions.

When times are good and everything is comfortably in order, it’s easy to become complacent and forget how skillful and resourceful you are capable of being. Troubled times are necessary evils that push you forward, because they eventually end, and the lessons and strengths you gain from them last a lifetime.

5. Laughing it Off
“Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.” –Veronica Roth

If you wish to measure your success in life, don’t bother analyzing your bank account, or your job description, or your relationship status, or your weight, or any other superficial badge society loves to pin on your resume. Just count the moments you spend peacefully in laughter. That’s what success is – living happily in your own way, and laughing at the highs, the lows, and all the ridiculous moments in between.

Do what you need to do, but don’t take yourself too seriously. Laugh whenever you can because you can. There’s honestly nothing like deep breaths after a good chuckle – nothing in the whole wide world like a sore tummy and cheeks for all the right reasons. Read Learned Optimism.

6. Staying True to Yourself
“I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself.” –Rita Mae Brown

To make a positive difference in your life you must sometimes be different and take the road less traveled. It requires courage to go against the grain like this, especially when the people around you are confused and irritated by your choices; but such courage can bring great rewards when you stick to your guns.

Where others see only shadows of uncertainty, look for glimmers of opportunity. When you encounter rudeness and irritation, generously offer polite doses of confident patience. When you bump up against arrogance, dilute the negativity with your own sincere, self-assured humility.

Just because everyone is heading in a one direction doesn’t mean you must go that way too. On the contrary, it’s a valuable opportunity for you to step aside and figure out where you truly want to go.

7. Fighting for Your Dreams
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” –Eleanor Roosevelt

When things don’t go right, it doesn’t mean you have to go wrong along with them. Goals and dreams are kind of like breathing – once you give up, there’s no hope left. Don’t do that to yourself.

It’s always too early to quit. You must continue breathing, even if it’s just a series of short, shallow breaths. Continue putting forth even the smallest efforts to sustain your dreams. Accept the fact that if you fight through the challenges, there is always a chance you might lose, but if you do not fight at all, you have already lost. Read 1,000 Little Things.

8. Deciding to Change
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” –Mark Twain

If you’re not where you want to be right now, take the time to visualize yourself in the place you want to be and take the first step in that direction. You may not be able to change your destination in a day, but you can change your direction right now.

Keep moving along this new path and it will eventually lead you to your destination.

9. Being Present
“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.” –George Harrison

Do not wish your moments away. Do not ruin today by focusing on another time and place. There is only now; realize how rich you are in it. It stands to reason that if you learn to live well you will eventually pass on well too, in complete peace. The skills are the same: being present in the moment, and brave, and thankful for all the opportunities you have.

Make your time count. Right now you are creating history – your legacy. Don’t let it slip by without being aware of it. Life works in a strange way: You want something and you work and wait and work and wait, and feel like it’s taking forever to come. Then it happens and it’s over and all you want to do is relive all the great memories you made along the way.

Happiness is the journey. Open your eyes. Don’t miss it. Read The Power of Now.

10. Being Thankful
“Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you.” –Walt Whitman

You are right here, right now, breathing. Enjoy it. You’ve got nothing to do today except to smile.

Happiness is valuing what you have, and enjoying the people, places, objects and events in your life for what they are. It’s not about changing and achieving all the time, it’s about being and appreciating. And you can nearly always enjoy the things happening around you if you make up your mind firmly that you will.
