Don’t Settle!

Four weeks ago, I started a new daytime job, and whilst the people are very nice, and the salary always comes in handy, it’s not the position I applied for or the hours I wanted, yet – I accepted their offer when it was made, and for the moment, I’m remaining in the role, because……

Perhaps, it has something to teach me.

Although, within a week of commencing the position; I tore 3 ligaments in my left foot, an injury which is still hampering my life. This includes; no gym, and as it’s a sit-down role, I’m becoming stir crazy.  Aaaaagghhhh!!

Not, a full 2 weeks later, I contracted a horrendous cold, which I’m still suffering from, and unfortunately, my contracted hours do not allow for much else in my life, and I’ve temporarily given up many things I enjoy.

Not forgetting, the intensive training, which the role requires, ensuring I’m too tired when I get home, to even want; to pick up my laptop…..as you can imagine; my emails are taking on a life of their own.

(It also has, too many rules & regulations to suit me – I feel like I’ve lost my freedom).

As time’s been passing, I’ve come to the conclusion, that; I’m doing what’s expected, or; what’s considered socially acceptable, because it’s the right thing to do. And, in the process; my life is passing me by, whilst; I’m settling for something I don’t want.

Perhaps, this was the lesson, I needed to learn – My life, is exactly that; “My Life” and I shouldn’t; Settle!

So…….I’ve set my inner-self a time limit, and made a vow, and you’re all welcome to hold me to it.

By the end of September or, preferably; June; I will have moved on from this position, and not only found something better, but it’ll  also be more fitting for accomplishing my own life’s dream, and I’m hoping that those of you in similar situations, will do the same.

Find Your Dream, and Live It!

(PS: I haven’t forgotten you.  And, thank you to those, who haven’t forgotten me either).

Dont Settle

Success !!

Success Comes In Many Forms.
From the child taking its first step,
To an elderly person still agile,
Success welcomes us all.

Neither age nor gender nor race
can impede our chance to succeed
in reaching our dream,
or our chosen goal.

Success is not; the biggest house,
the fastest car, or
the nameplate on your door,
but it is a compassionate heart,
a smiling face,
and challenges overcome,

Success is not; money in the bank,
stamps on your passport, or
fancy gym memberships
But it is; a helping hand,
a forgiving nature
and a welcoming home.

Success is not; a famous face,
a fancy title or
the latest cellular phone,
But it is; the will to try again,
when all others; would’ve given up.

Success is not;
the belief that everything,
is one’s due reward
But it is; faith,
Commitment and persistence,
Together with an inner trust,
that all will be well.

So if you’re ready to walk away from your dream,
after one too many setbacks, remember….
Failure is only temporary.
Success is eternal and has no firm definition.

Good luck Heron

The Magic In Life, Is Close At Hand.

During the difficult times of life, don’t feel discouraged, for if we look hard enough;
we’ll always find a little magic somewhere.

From the affection; in your families eyes,
To the companionship; given by a friend.
The warmth and tenderness felt when cuddling a favourite pet.
A child’s tinkling laughter that can bring; an answering smile.

Flowers blooming, in glorious colour,
Changing seasons, that add beauty and growth.
White cotton wool clouds; floating across a clear sky,
Rainbows shimmering with colour, after the rain.
Amazing creatures that roam; across wide, and beautiful lands,
People of many races, yet with like-minded souls.

Words of kindness and comfort offered with love,
A helping hand, held out, and freely given when required.
Someone who listens; when tears start to fall,
A shoulder, to lean on; when problems arise.

If we just take a minute, to look at our world,
We’ll see Magic all around us, a real joy to behold.
So, on days when your path seems troublesome and weary,
Remember that you have; enchantment around you,
That has no price, all it requires, is we open our eyes.

“LOVE AND CARE YOUR SELF”(2)

justice948

Self care is never selfish act it is good stewardship

of the only gift I have

The gift I put on earth to offer to others

When you adopt the view point that there is nothing that exists that is not a part of you

That any judgement you make is  self judgement

That any criticism

you will wisely extend to yourself

An  unconditional love that will be the light  of the world

why should we worry about others think of us

Do we have more confident in

In their opinions than we do our own

To establish true self esteem 

we must concentrate on our successes

And forget about the failures and nigative in our lives

A healthy self love means we have no

Compulsion to justify to justify to ourselves

Or other authors why we take vacation

Why we sleep late who we buy new shoes

why we…

“LOVE AND CARE YOUR SELF” (1)

This is something we should all take on board.

justice948

Love you yourself as much as any body in entire universe

Deserve your love and affection

until you value yourself you won’t value your time

until you value your time

You will not do anything with it

A man can not be Successful and complete comfortable

Without his own approval

Never be bullied into silence

Never allowed yourself to be made a victim

Accept no one’s definition of your choice

And life  but define yourself

Love yourself first and every thing else falls into line

You really have to love  yourself to get any thing

Done in the world

Remember always that you not only have the right

To be an individual

You have no obligation to be one

If you could sense how improvement

You are to the lives of those you meet

How improvement you can be to people

You may never even dream of there is

Something…
