there comes a time to be happy

It is harder to tell ourselves the things we can rationally understand, but struggle to fulfill.  Yet, we would tell a friend that while we cannot avoid anxiety and stress, good times and bad, or unfulfilled dreams or relationships, there are no wrong answers or half packages.  One choice brings another, and another, and whatever happens, you can survive because you are stronger than the pain you have endured and committed to finding joy on your own terms.

Surround yourself with people and ideas that make you smile.  It takes strength and great amounts of energy to persevere despite it all.  But you can, one step at a time, whenever you feel ready to proceed.   You can do this.

may you never forget what is worth remembering

These are the ones that made my list. What are some of the things you have learned along the way?

Life is too short to wallow in someone else’s muck.

As long as you can still find something to laugh about, you are doing alright.

No matter how hard you try to rationalize someone else’s bad behavior, you won’t feel better about how badly they treated you.

Even a psychiatrist cannot change a light bulb if it is not willing to change…..and there are some pretty dim bulbs out there.

Choosing to remove yourself, and hold your head up high, is always more empowering than letting other people exclude you.

There is no such thing as too much kindness or compassion.

If someone asks “How Are You?” as they keep walking past you, they don’t really care about the answer.  Eye contact, or lack thereof, is an indication.

You will never find out who you really are if you are only willing to look as far as your mirror.

You don’t have to give birth to change the life of a child.

Choose to smile at someone and go the extra mile. It is not for them anymore, it is just for you and your dignity.

No matter how bad, or insecure, you may feel about yourself, ultimately, you will have enough self-esteem to keep someone else from putting you down. Trust me, it really is there.

It is OK to acknowledge the fear and the anxiety in daily situations and keep going.

If you have forged a new path, make it easy for someone to follow.

Your parents are not 100% wrong all the time. Leave some room in your life for error.

You are never responsible for someone else’s bad behavior. They are. Nothing you could ever do will make someone else behave badly unless he or she chooses to act that way.

Quitting is hard, and can affect your confidence, but there is strength in knowing when enough is enough.

There will always be people who have more than you. But, there will always be people who have less.

Say “please” and “thank you” to anyone who does something for you or helps you. Even if you pay them, they still deserve the respect and courtesy of good manners.

There is only one true Judge and it does not have to be me.

Charity is not just giving money. It is a state of mind and an act of being.

It is OK to cry and to grieve your losses no matter how little, or how much, time has passed. It comes in waves, and when the swells rise, the tears will fall.

Remember that it is normal and human to cry and grieve and that those who think it is “negative,” or tell you not to cry, or avoid you, have their own mental and emotional issues to sort out. Being human and empathetic is the way we were created to behave in these circumstances.

You can empathize with people if you have experienced difficult and life-searing changes and are honest about them. People can see phony from a mile away.

In the end, it does not matter how much you have or how much you spent. It matters if you were a mensch (human being).

Believe in the power of Faith for it is the only thing that has allowed change to occur.

Where faith is denied, Love cannot grow.

Faith can be in a Heavenly Power. But, it can also be faith that is restored in humanity, optimism, or a renewed sense of self.

Faith can be the leap into the unknown because change is easier than staying in the situation that you are in.  Faith can be the incredible effort that you make in entering the world each day to overcome pain and fear.

Faith is the quiet voice within you that says things have to get better; there must be another way. Faith is the knowledge that life has more to offer than the precarious place where you reside. Faith is the belief that healing is possible in all areas of your life.  Faith is the scary step that you take when your heart can take no more.

Faith is what boosts your soul and self-esteem.  It is the effort that you make to improve your personal strength and express that which holds you back.  Faith is the belief that the truth will prevail; it is a source of energy deep within to encourage and help others. It is a belief that when one door closes, another will open.

Faith is a belief in one’s self that you deserve and are capable of finding appreciation and validation.

Each breath is a confirmation of faith that it will be followed by another.  The sun will rise and the darkness will end. This is to have Faith.
