Living life

Today I got a quote that went like this:
"It's not who your are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not." - Anon

This is so true. I mean, if you think you're not good enough for something, be it sports, job, relationship, then you won't get want you want out of the situation. Unfortunately, this is how it is for most people out there. We all mindf*c* ourselves so much into thinking that life couldn't possibly give us a fair shake, that we just settle. We settle for the crappy job or settle for the partner that treats you like crap, because of the old addage, "That's life."

Don't get me wrong, there are the optimists out there. The so-called, "happy people" who have seen the pot at the end of rainbow. They are the self confident and the silver lining seers that believe that every house has a picket fence and is filled with a family with 2.5 kids.

I, unfortunately, am not one of the silver lining people. These are the mottos that I live by:
God doesn't give us anything that we can't handle.
Everything happens for a reason.
Always expect the worst. That way, you're not suprised if it happens.

So, think about your life. Which path do you follow?

Until next post...

I'd probably be a combination of both. I went to PSI Seminars & Holodynamics; we learned a lot of stuff in that vein. But certainly I slip all the time. No biggie.

I've made a wonderful life for myself. It's not anywhere close to what I'm capable of, but it's enough to make me happy. And it's not over yet.

Set goals that you really want. Then achieve them. Enjoy the ride. And then celebrate your achievements. That is all.
