Love yourself

Whether you call life a dash or a climb, it's really about the same idea -- that life is action, life is now, life is this moment. The now is the only guarantee we have, but it is so easy for me to get caught up in what will (or might) be.Of course we can plan and prepare and work towards the future, but we're never really going to know what mountains will lie ahead. All we know for sure is that we're here, now, climbing.

When I stop to think about what I'm feeling or thinking, I realize that it's not usually what it seems. I am struggling to climb.There's usually more. It's usually complicated. And, yes, sometimes it's a pain in the ass to think about situations or feelings I don't feel like dealing with. But finding out what my feelings mean or thinking about why I'm thinking about a certain topic usually leads me to a greater understanding of myself, which only brings about more happiness in my life. Knowing me better means knowing the world better, something we often take for granted.

My point here is be kind to yourself. Love yourself more than anything else in this world.Why bother to cry if its not worth of every penny.Be thankful for what is going well in your life is an excellent way to dive into the day with a positive attitude.As I've been struggling with this lately, I've been reminding myself that it really is possible to change my perspective.To climb again even I keep on falling down. 

About a year ago, I decided I was going to make a change in my life. I was going to start looking for the good, seeking the positive, and striving to make every day a joyful experience. This was something I would have never imagined myself doing, but it's something that has impacted my life every single day since then.I made myself climbing the corporate ladder,dealing with rejections and critics,dealing with my broken heart and I still believe I have a long way to climb to achieve what I really want in my life.

 I took my love, I took it down
Climbed the mountain and I turned around
I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills
Till the landslide brought me down
Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child in my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
