Value Yourself

Making yourself a priority allows you to be a better person, not only for you but for the people around you. Sometimes you have to think about yourself and stop putting others ahead of you. You know they old saying, "If Mama ain't happy, no one is happy!" So what can you do to ensure that you will be taking care of you? First off, don't settle for less than you feel like you deserve. Alot of times we stay in dead end relationships to keep from being alone. Healthy relationships are key to being happy. Learn to say no! You can't do everything for everyone all the time and still have time for yourself! Don't compare yourself to other people. Your journey in life is not going to be someone else's. Comparing yourself to others is not a good say to judge your life. Only you can walk in your shoes! Be appreciative! The more you appreciate what you have, and who you have it with, the better your life will flow. Be positive and positive things will happen!

Being Happy With Yourself

I haven't posted here in almost two years.. Been sorta busy I guess.. It's certainly not because I don't have anything to talk about. There has been many changes in my life, some good, some bad. Learning to deal with these and continuing to grow is the hard part.. The hardest thing in life is to redefine who you are. We take on many roles throughout our lives – each of which are not possible without others being a part of our lives.. You can't be a mother without a child, a teacher without students, etc.. Sometimes you have to redefine yourself without losing site of who you are.. You are the only one who can truly make YOU happy. Being in a bad place in your life, being unhappy with everything about it can be a miserable thing. Sometimes you have to learn to be happy. There is no way to account for the tremendous change that happens when you learn to accept who you are and that you are perfect just as you are. Loving yourself allows others to love you. When you stop criticizing yourself, you are happier and you are a better person to be around. Learning to appreciate what you have instead of what you don't have will open up the road. Sounds easy enough, huh? Sometimes this is hard for me, sometimes I forget to be thankful for the little things.. Sometimes the green-eyes monster takes over me and feeds off my insecurities. I am a work in progress that is for sure. I am learning to be happy. ‘Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.’ ~Lao Tzu

What are they? What do they mean to different people? Seems I have been lacking in the "friend" department lately so I decided to surf around on the net and find out what friendships mean to other people. Maybe I am just expecting too much?

"Insert taken from"
"What is a friend? True friendship is perhaps the only relation that survives the trials and tribulations of time and remains unconditional. A unique blend of affection, loyalty, love, respect, trust and loads of fun is perhaps what describes the true meaning of friendship. Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship. To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure."

Yes, Indeed, I have found a true friend is a rare treasure - one that most of us will never behold. Not because of you as a person but because of the selfishness of the ones we choose to be our friends. Some people have no regard for compassion or trust. They are the ones who use the world as their toy and they will play your friendship like a chess game, planning the moves to their benefit and when they are done or you have served your purpose in their game, you are placed into "check" and before you know it, you have been removed from the game. How does one avoid these types of friendships and the disappointment that comes with one? YOU CANT. That is what totally sux about the whole situation. You are left, used and unwanted. Searching for the meaning of friendship has always been a burning question. However as soon as we meet our friends all these questions get answered automatically.

The reality of broken friendships..

When friends let you down, its very heart wrenching. Sometimes the reason why friends betray you is just not known, which leaves you with a feeling of guilt that may be something went wrong from your side. In case of betrayal, being at the receiving end leaves you hurt, confused and angry. You demand answers as to why have you been betrayed for absolutely no fault of yours. The talks end abruptly, phone calls are not returned, letters remain unanswered and there is no contact whatsoever. Hate it as much as you want, you will have to come to terms with reality and accept that things were not meant to be.

The new year is on the way

Well, its coming, with bells and whistles, even if we don't want it too.. The year 2012. There are so many things that I would love to be different for myself.. although I'm not one to make resolutions for the following years.. I never follow through.. always failing in more ways that one.. Personal
failure hurts the heart and the soul and can crush one's desire to succeed in the everyday so I sit here and think to myself.. what will I try to change about myself, what will be different for me? How will I make sure I succeed nough to satisfy myself??
