Please yourself first


Truth is, no matter what we do, say, think, believe, we cannot please everyone. There will always be someone who won’t like it and won’t be afraid to tell you so. We cannot meet everyone’s expectations. So why don’t we just focus on pleasing the one person who will have to live with you: yourself. You have to live with your actions, your choices, your perspective, so why are we trying so hard to please others when we can so easily please ourselves. Do what makes you happy, what makes you grow, what makes you live. Set your own standards, create your own rules and live your own life. It’s your life, not theirs.

The world is abundant


The world is abundant. There’s so much to see, so much to do, so much to be. Pick people’s brains. Walk through open doors. Talk to strangers. Take a new route home. Go somewhere you’ve never been before. Experience as much as you can, including mistakes, failure, risks, struggle, uncertainty. Because that will bring us closer to experiencing the beauty of life. There’s so much on offer. We just need to take it.

The world’s magic

  

The world is full of music for those who learn to listen for it. Laughter and chatter. The breeze against the trees and the raindrops against the rooftop. The first cry of a newborn and the first i-love-you. The world is full of beauty for those who learn to see it. The turn from winter to spring. The bustling of the city. The ocean. The earth. The sunrise. The world is full of magic for those who learn to feel it. The sincere apology, the declaration, the inspiration, the choice, the love. Endless possibilities. The world is full of wonder. Explore and open yourself up to it.

Thoroughly used up… George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw quote 2

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations. ~ George Bernard Shaw
