Day 181 Question 181:
Do you believe that you get back what you put out (The Secret)?
My life completely changed when I decided to change. For many years I spent time loathing the way I looked and felt like I wasn’t good enough. During this time I experienced depression and anger and there were times even I didn’t want to be around myself. One day I did a complete turn-around and said “SCREW THIS” and I learned that everything in life is a choice. From that moment on I chose happiness. The happiness came more and more as I exposed myself to more positive things in my life. Instead of degrading myself and hating minor aspects of myself, I embraced all of the beauty that I held within me. Everyday I have reminded myself in some way or another of how good of a person I am and how valuable I really am. Once I changed my state of mind and practiced exposing myself to the good as opposed to all of the bad, everything changed.
Below are just some different quotes that have reminded me of what is truly important in life…happiness being #1. I wanted to share these because I know so many people go around everyday living in a state of unhappiness. I wanted to remind each and every one of you how beautiful you are and I wanted to (virtually) grab you by the shoulders and look you in the eye and tell you to stop tearing yourself apart…stop believing you aren’t good enough, aren’t pretty enough, aren’t smart enough, or aren’t worthy enough….because you are LYING to yourself. Don’t choose unhappiness. Every one of us on this earth are beautiful creatures with something completely unique. If you don’t love yourself you don’t allow others to love you either. EVERYONE deserves to be loved.
“If you don’t love yourself, you don’t allow others to love you either.” I love that line, and it is so true
I recently read someone’s FB status and they were going on about how it was their 2nd anniversary and they were so happy. Someone commented that it was a lucky thing to find that someone, that special love with whom you can spend the rest of your life. I wanted to (and should have) comment that it was equally if not more important that we express that same joy when we find that love for or with ourselves.
Facebook should have a relationship status that indicates self love; or that we’re in a relationship with ourselves. Jus’ sayin’ 🙂
My whole blog is based on choosing to focus on being happy instead of choosing to get sucked into negative thoughts. Stop by: theusualbliss.com.
Even those people with what we perceive as awesome lives have problems. And the people with big problems can often be the most content and have positive outlooks. Thanks for writing!
You’re right. It is a choice. Best post thus far =)
Thanks for the reminder 🙂 Great post
This is great 🙂
Amazing post. Thank you for this!
The beauty of this timely and miraculous post is I JUST watched The Secret last night and had made up my mind to do the exact thing you have stated here. It is jaw dropping to read it now, first thing in the morning, knowing that today I decided I am going to live my life this way. Thank you for writing this, thank you for posting this and thank you for sharing your life, your thoughts and hopes. It makes a difference!
No.. Without the ability to control others actions towards you, the secret doesn’t work. Whether you believe or not, work hard or not, be nice or be aggressive, others will do what their nature makes them do, whether it harms you or not. Great images:)
