Know Yourself

We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light. ~Mary Dunbar

This will be short as it has been a long day as I freelance for other people – FULL TIME…Anyway, to end my day; I needed some empowerment…so I stumbled upon Mary Dunbar’s quote.

Its TRUE…She’s right that we are all gifted in a unique and important way.  It is our privilege and adventure to discover our own special light.  I TOTALLY AGREE….When I started believing in myself, I discovered these talents that was dormant for 42 years. What I believed I was before is not true…So each day is an adventure….KNOW YOURSELF! You never know what you can do….

Ending my day with this advice –> know, embrace, and accept yourselves, with all of your faults and imperfections. You will be happier.

He who cannot forgive others

“The rule is: we cannot really forgive ourselves unless we look at the failure in our past and call it by its right name.”
Lewis B. Smedes – Forgive & Forget: Healing the Hurts We Don’t Deserve

Lately, I have been thinking about my past.

I could have changed a lot of my past mistakes but I cannot rewind so all I need to do is actually, forgive my past and just move forward and make the most of my present life.  There is nothing I can do but make the most of what I have today – really!

Everyone wants to change a part of their life so I am not alone.

In the past, I let my past control my past life. I fell into depression and was making emotional decisions about everything. It wasn’t good. Recently, since I came back almost 2 years ago, I started thinking. I cannot live this way anymore.  Forgive the past and just let it go. Since then, I became a stronger person inside and out. Worked on my self-esteem and I started believing on my self-worth. Boy, did I rebound to a better person 100 ten-folds.

Life is not easy for everyone including me. I take care of myself and no one takes care of me.  I cannot destroy my life and waste my life away. Eventually, I stood up after falling down very hard 2 years ago.

Despite the challenges and trials, I still consider myself very blessed.

Thank you God for everything. You never left my side. You were always there.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Self-Esteem

Wow, really powerful video from Matt Malone of Igwalam in YouTube!

It is not about where we have been, but where we are headed.

Reflect on your present blessings, of which
every man has many, not on your past
misfortunes, of which all men have some.
