Some days it's easy to feel discouraged, disheartened and just downright bad. Am I right? Why not give yourself a giant, much-needed break on these "d days." Show yourself some love, be kind and gentle with yourself, take it easy and remember... it's just a moment (or two) in your life, it's not a reflection of your whole life. So… SEIZE all the good moments you can, grab them, shake them up, hug them tightly, appreciate them and turn them into amazing memories you can turn to when the "d days" drop in for an unexpected, unwelcome visit.
Facing our challenges like the strong, resilient, capable creatures we are is something we CAN, WILL and DO dare ourselves to do each and every moment of each and every day. Right? You know you can do it. You've done it this far right?! Do you need more inspiration? Look no further than the piece below by Steve Maraboli. It kinda puts it into perspective and kinda says it all. I love it and hope you will too. As always, I welcome your thoughts, comments and whatever you'd like to share. Take good care of yourself and...
“Dare to Be
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –
