Life CAN Be Great Ė Itís a Choice!
07 Mar 2014 by Tracy Goodwin
If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Love with your heart, not your eyes.
Pick your battles wisely.
Never, ever give up: you might miss the miracle!
Believe in miracles.
There is beauty everywhere; open your eyes to see it.
Be grateful, for everything.
Trust the greater plan is better than the life you think you must have.
You might have strength beyond what you could ever imagine.
Faith is critical.
Itís not all about you.
The time you donít make for someone could be everything to them.
Communicate! No matter what, ALWAYS say your truth. Just make sure and say it nicely.
Once you say no, donít feel guilty about it.
Embrace your past, no matter what mistakes it might include, it helped make you fabulous.
Before you act or speak, think about how it might affect others.
Possessions do not matter, experiences do.
Make sure your children feel loved, safe and supported.
Do everything you can to make a difference in peopleís lives.
Never judge your life by looking at othersí exterior.
Live in the now, today, this moment.
Do not have fear about anyone or anything: it will paralyze you.
Be willing to take risks in life and love.
Use wisdom as you make your choices.
Never ignore red flags.
Never settle! Always have faith that something and someone amazing are out there for you ó itís all in the timing.
Believe you are fabulous and loved.
It doesnít matter what others think about you.
Honor your word.
Make your wrongs right. No matter how scared you are, the outcome might not be as bad as you think it is going to be.
Ask for help and let others help you when you need it.
Love the people that provide the greatest challenges even more than the ones you love.
Do not blame others for your actions: take responsibility for what youíve done, the life youíve created.
Donít say things that are hurtful or that you donít mean. They cannot be taken back, but they can dramatically impact another humanís life far more than you might imagine.
Donít punish people with silence because they cannot read your mind or donít act the way you want them to.
Always communicate your wants, needs and desires.
Be willing to let people go if they canít meet your needs, wants and desires, even if it means being alone.
Donít try to make people be what you want them to be.
Let go of the life you believe you must have in order to receive the life you deserve.
Always love the true person, not the fantasy of what you think they could be.
Never try to change people.
Accept your circumstances, or change them (if you can).
Itís a waste of time to stay in a bad situation with your only action complaining.
Be aware of actions, yours and the actions of others, actions do speak louder than words.
Life is hard and unfair at times, so focus on the good!
