Live like a free spirit


It’s a beautiful day

nature, purple flowers

Every morning gives you a new beginning, and an opportunity for a better life and for an ending to unhappiness. It’s a chance to appreciate life, to breathe in the beauty of nature, and to be grateful for the beautiful day before you.

There’s so much beauty all around us. How could I have missed it? Like many others I used to sail through the day oblivious to everything but my unhappiness. I lived and breathed unhappiness and let it define me. I ate too much, I procrastinated too much, I put other people’s needs before mine and pretended it didn’t matter because all that mattered was the approval of others. I was convinced that the approval of others would make me whole. And of course instead of making me whole looking for validation from others just chipped away at my self-esteem more and more each year.

The best gifts often come from the worst situations

Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you can look up and see how much there is to be grateful for. Don’t wait that long.
