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...
