Chase The Right Things

In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed.

So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
Mitch Albom

Do what makes you happy. Take care of yourself. Be carefree. We’re not going to live forever, and when you really think about it, it’s really not that long in the grand scheme of things. So live gracefully. Stop chasing towards material things and being someone that you’re not. Life is far too short to be anyone but yourself and to be doing anything that you’re not completely in love with.

1. Know the friends or people who tend to wear you out and deliberately limit the time you spend with them.

2. Be aware of how your thought patterns change throughout the day and challenge these thought patterns when they’re harsh or negative.

3. Recognize that it is normal to struggle with your feelings and feelings can be fickle – so don’t let them rule your life.

4. Set some personal goals that use your talents and your gifts. It’s good to stretch ourselves and to be all that we can be.

5. Be gentle with yourself when you are anxious, tired and stressed. Be kind and understanding and give yourself a break.

6. Self-nurturing is crucial for a healthy self esteem. You need to treat yourself as you would treat a special friend.

7. Remember: we ALL fail. It’s just normal part of life. What matters is you’re learning and you’re changing over time.

A Very Rare Thing

Often friends are for a time and season. It doesn’t mean they weren’t good friends – but the fact is that people and circumstances change. A true and faithful friend is a very rare thing, and a precious gift that is given to us.

Everyone wants to believe that we can count on someone in our life. It is comforting to think that there is one person to help us through difficult and stressful times, and holds us up when life gets us down. Consider yourself very fortunate if you have that person in your life.
