What our life’s depend on? I hear you money-lie-hate. The real life is like that sure I’m not blind.Really hard to find this values nowadays and even if you be loyal they don’t like it because you are not cheating, hating, greedy they will judge you why you are different? While everyone the same. You will feel lonely in a crowd but don’t give up keep what matters most to you even all the rest of the world gone crazy. Or maybe only you will be only the crazy. Keep respect- trust- love even no one deserve it but you deserve yours.
Surprise..surprise… not everyone is in love with their job. As a mentor, friend, colleague I always hear variations of:
‘meh it’s ok’
‘I just don’t love this’
‘it’s good money’
‘feeds the family’
‘it’s allright, like the people’
‘it’s just a job’
‘it’s convenient and pays the bills’
‘putting kids through college is not cheap and we are not in Sweden!’
‘ugh, got the golden cuffs on, addicted to my paycheck’
‘it’s boring but I am good at it’
…. and so on…
Reality is this: it is ok that not everyone is head over heels for their job. Yes, despite all LinkedIN articles and HBR catchy headlines, this is reality for millions of people. At some level it is ‘just’ a job and only ‘one’ part of your true life. So my response usually goes ‘ok, but find something you love to do. Not saying find a job … find something in your life that you enjoy doing’. This could be as simple as cooking, writing, jumping off planes, surfing, book club, spending time with your kids, bird watching, traveling, blogging 😉 … you get the idea.
Recently in one of these sessions tables were turned… and I was asked ‘huh ok … so what is that something that you love to do, what is that for you?’. For a moment, which felt like an eternity, I was stumped… was not expecting the question. Before I could open my mouth, visuals of my pottery studio and things I have made popped into my brain. Told her ‘I love making stuff out of clay… oh let me show you’
Here is ‘shooting star’:
Here is ‘fun’:
Here is ‘hope’:
Before boring her I stopped at showing her these 3 clay and porcelain ornaments. She got the point – and was surprised, said she expected that my thing would have been something more lofty or tied to work. Hmmm … Will probe on that next time, but for now let’s adjourn; I have a to run to the pottery studio!!!
So have you found something you love to do??
These are the words that I love a lot saying what I can’t say sometimes when I confused or sad or mad or even happy they teach me something that I didn’t think before THANKS a LOT for putting all the letters and words in this beautiful meanings.
I just would like to share them with anyone who finds something from itself.
Don’t judge someone just because they sin differently than you.
Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.
Be curious not judgmental.
Do small things with great LOVE.
Remember happiness is way of travel not a destination.
In life it’s not where you go it’s who you travel with.
Your children become who you are, so be who you want them to be.
Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, your behavior does.
Drop jealousy and envy, for they make you ugly, be loving be accepting and most of all be happy just the way you are.
Success doesn’t just come and find you you have to go out and get it.
If God shuts a door, stop bang on it! Trust that what ever is behind it is not meant for you.
You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.
When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to SMILE.
EGO take the E off and let it GO!
Life is far too short. To be sad. To be mad. To hold regret. To look back. To be depressed. To be unkind. Do the reverse of all these counted.
Be crazy. Be stupid. Be silly. Be weird. Be whatever. Because life is too short to be anything but HAPPY.
Maybe I’m crazy but all the best people are.
Think HAPPY Be HAPPY.
Have LESS. Do MORE. Be MORE.
Wherever you are be all there.
When the devil keeps on asking you to look at your past. There must be something good in the future that the devil doesn’t want to you to see.
I don’t want you to save me. I want you to stand by my side as I save myself.
Still time to change the road you are on.
I’ll choose HONESTY over Perfection every single time.
When someone is nasty or treats you poorly, don’t take it personally. It says nothing about you but a lot about them.
Live in the MOMENT.
The cure for anything is salt water SWEAT TEARS or the SEA.
Forget what it hurt you but never forget what it taught you.
No one ever get tired of loving. They got tired of waiting, assuming, hearing lies, saying sorry, and hurting.
When I give food to the poor they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food they call me communist.
Always trust your first gut instincts. If you genuinely feel in your heart and soul that something is wrong, it usually is.
Some of the most poisonous people come disguised as friends and family.
Spend a little more time trying to make something of yourself and a little less time trying to impress people.
Waiting for someone else to make you happy is the best way to be sad.
Honesty is an expensive gift; don’t expect it from cheap people.
If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.
LIVE LOVE like there is no tomorrow.
Respect your self enough to walk away from anyone or anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you happy.
Don’t hate what you don’t understand.
Different is beautiful.
A great relationship is about two things first find similarities second respect the differences.
I don’t like standard beauty there is no beauty without strangeness.
Old ways won’t open new doors.
Cultivate the habit of being grateful.
Being happy doesn’t mean that every thing is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.
I’m thankful to all those said no to me. it’s because of them I did it myself.
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.
No reason to stay is a good reason to go.
You cannot hang out with negative people and expect to live a positive life.
The greatest prison people live in, is the fear of what other people think.
Be with those who help your being.
Saying yes to happiness means learning to say no to things and people that stress you out.
Don’t find fault find a remedy anybody can complain.
Never respond to rudeness. When people are rude to you, they reveal who they are, not who you are don’t take it personally be silent.
Before you react think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.
Many times we have to just stop and ask ourselves sincerely do I really happy on the way of life that I’m on? Or should I change my way my life and how? Or maybe you just have to learn something new.
Hope coming near to the end of this year our worries, disappointments bad experiences and all sort of that we call bad or negative was in our life just to change us to be better person and to make us able to see the life with different perspectives to enlighten our minds and hearts to see what was missing from our lifes.
