…presentation in some nice Christmas colors
Very interesting to see these different mindsets and behavioral differences…I know I got to work on some of these as well.
Questions for you:
- Do you make some of these mistakes as well?
- Do you catch yourself watching TV for hours?
- What are your favorite self-development books?
Be kind to others! Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about!
The other day I was standing by an intersection waiting for the light to turn green so I can cross the road! A car pulled up with two passengers and their windows were down. They had the music on pretty loud and the lady on the passenger side started singing a high note, she got really into it so I started smiling while listening to her…she looked at me, turned down the music and said: Thank you for that beautiful smile, you made my day! You are lovely!
My light turned green and I crossed the road but I was smiling constantly. I made her day, she made mine and we both moved on with a good and warm feeling in our hearts. Isn’t this how it should be? We should be kind and sweet to each other instead of being grumpy and mean all the time. The world can be a dark place but these little moments throughout the day can lighten up our every days!
Be that light in someone else’s day, be the smile that they will remember of!
Now go out there and smile!!!

Enough said! ♥
Remember: you buy people’s opinion, you buy their lifestyle!
Well, I apologize for the bad word, but today is just one of those days when I realized how important it is to keep in mind, that we can’t please everyone.
Oh how many times do I have to remind myself of this? I am getting better realizing whose opinion truly matters but sometimes I still feel bad about myself based on other’s opinion. It is such a big mistake and all it does is ruin my days.
Look around…who are the ones that are next to you not just in the good but the bad times too? Listen to their opinion! Who are the ones that support you and pick you up when you are at your lowest? Who are your friends that will get your choices without criticizing all the time? The ones that want you to succeed without jealousy?
Stay true to yourself and don’t worry about what other’s think. Don’t let negativity ruin your dreams and goals, because you will regret not making the necessary steps towards those goals. Don’t let the judgmental people control your life…those people won’t be a part of it for too long anyways!
Now go ahead and follow Tim’s example 😀
Uhm…well…hello, so easy, so simple, makes perfect sense, then why is it so damn hard to do? I am going to print this quote out and put it on the fridge…because that is probably the place that gets the most traffic in our house anyways:D
Good old Johnny Depp knows what’s up. The worst feeling is looking back and thinking…I wish I had the courage to do what I wanted to, instead of listening to others. I have been there, you probably have been there, everyone has been there…when you want to do something but decide not to do it because you are worried what other people might say…aaaand slowly convince yourself that of course they are right about this and you talk yourself out of the whole thing. Well, big mistake.big.huge.
Those missed opportunities became the biggest regrets of my life because I made a decision based on other people’s opinion. How would they know what is good for me? They don’t live my life. They don’t pay my bills. They don’t know what they are talking about. They just like to judge and put me down to lift themselves up.
Make the decision that is best for you and your loved ones. If you run into people who laugh at you and don’t believe in you, prove them wrong. Work twice as hard and lift up your chin and be proud of your choice. It is easy to judge others, it is hard to support them…stick with the friends who support your dreams, help you build them and no matter how many times you fail, they will still be by your side.
Fight for your dreams and never let them go just because of someone else’s opinion, who might not even be part of your life in the future.
Now go and get your dreams! 🙂
Today’s quote is going to come hand-in-hand with a little venting so I apologize for that in advance. (Respect for everyone, who is an exception from what I am going to talk about)
I was sitting at a coffee shop yesterday and had the great “luck” to listen to some 13-14 year old children’s conversation. After 10-15 minutes I felt like this:
First of all, the entire time they were cursing…but let’s not get stuck on that. They sat down and threw their stuff all over the place which was very inconvenient for everyone else in the shop. They were loud the entire time and were talking about girls in their school in a very disturbing way. Again these are 13-14 year old guys!!!!!!!! After they got up they left all of their trash on the table even though they were supposed to clean that up. They were disrespectful with others, with girls and just everyone in general.
My first though was “Wow, these people will grow up and have jobs, and have girlfriends, and kids…” My kids will have to hang out with kids like them, work with them, interact with them. My girls will have to date people like them!!!! What the hell is going on?
Why can’t we raise kids who respect others, who talk kindly and gently about/to girls, who open the doors for women, who care about animals, who clean up after themselves, who give their seat to an elderly person on the public transport and who respect everyone despite their financial situation?
We live in such a materialistic world, having the best and most expensive things became more important than anything else… these kids had better phones than I do, wore expensive clothes and thought everyone else in the place was there for their convenience…but they could barely form an intelligent sentence and thought their behavior was normal???!!!!
It is absolutely terrifying and makes me sad that this is the future generation…
I think the most important ingredient to a healthy relationship, weather it is with family members, your significant other, or with a friend, is communication. But communication can be done in the wrong way too. Sometimes in an argument we miss the key information because we are so busy trying to push our point on the other person, ignoring what they actually really want. But listening to understand what the other person is saying is very key to a long lasting relationship, and sometimes we just gotta throw our egos away and say: I see your point, thank you for sharing it with me. This quote opened my eyes and thought it could be helpful to you as well!! It will change the way you will communicate with others in the future 🙂
