Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. ~ Christian D. Larson.
Being emotionally strong doesn’t mean you don’t experience pain. Weak people are the ones who run from their problems, while strong ones are the ones who face their life problems and look for ways to make things better. You cannot control what life throws at you, but you can choose how you react. Take responsibility for things you can control, and accept what you can’t. Don’t take everything personally, some things just aren’t about you. Life is full of challenges. Do the best you can, but remember to live in the moment. Turn your challenges into opportunities for growth, and don’t dwell on the small stuff. Practice gratitude and be thankful for the little things that make you smile. Make smiling a habit. One of the keys to living a positive, successful life is to have a belief system in place that is greater than yourself. Spirituality is a powerful source of strength. Practice kindness, stay strong and be happy, for happiness is a state of mind.
I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much. ~ Mother Teresa. ~ Join us at www.MysticalTalk.com as we take our path to strength and happiness, together.
