Journey of life…
Do not undermine your own worth
By comparing yourself with others
It is because we are different
that each of us is special.
Do not set your goals by what
other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.
Do not take for granted
The things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would to your life,
For without them, life is meaningless.
Do not let your life slip through your
fingers by living in the past nor the future.
By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.
Do not give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really
over until the moment you stop
trying. It is a fragile thread
that binds us to each other.
Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn to be brave.
Do not shut out love from your life
by saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love
is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love
is to hold it too tightly.
the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Do not dismiss your dreams,
as to be without dreams is to be without hope,
to be without hope,
is to be without purpose.
Do not run through life so fast
that you forget not only where you have been
but also where you are going.
Life is not a race,
but a journey to be savoured
all the way.
- This is a rather lengthy list of instructions, but looking at each one carefully, I realized that they are a very sound example of a “little book on life” which if studied, can lead us on to higher levels of being. Therefore, perhaps paste it in your diary where you can check in every day.
- Use a coloured pen to underline each line that is perhaps specifically relevant to you. “Work” with it by thinking of examples where you slipped up and in another colour, write down new ways of attempting to be.
