Change is scary, it really is. It’s not so much about changing your life, but the little things that keep us from growing – or in my case, healing. It’s about realizing that your mind is a liar sometimes. That some of the things we clung to our whole life are complete and utter bullshit. For me one of those things is the believe that something is fundamentally wrong with me. That, as a result from this wrongness I am destined to fail. What I didn’t realize is that I was the one setting myself up for failure before even trying. Weiterlesen
Ja, ich habe eine Liste mit meinen liebsten Filmzitaten gemacht – und bei genaueren Nachdenken festgestellt, dass ich für „Star Wars“ eine eigene brauche. Wie es dazu kam? Insomnia – tagelange und anhaltende, problem-bedingte Schlaflosigkeit. Weiterlesen
Somewhere along the line, you changed. You stopped being you.
You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good.
And when things got hard, you started lookin’ for something to blame, like a big shadow.
Let me tell you something you already know: The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.
But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!
Now if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth! But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody!
Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!
