It’s a lie to think you’re not good enough… it’s a lie to think that you’re not worth aything… (Nick Vujicic)
One of the few inspiring things I have ever encountered in my life.
So simple yet so powerful. Words from a man I have never met, yet moved a lot in my life.
See, I was never the smartest person in our class back in my school days. Though, YES, i did try everything that I can just to learn the things I know I needed to learn. I was never, even for once, a top scorer to any of our exams at school. Though YES, I did try my very best to answer them all correctly and carefully. I was never the most active person in our class during recitation although I undeniably talk a lot. I mean A LOT.
I was never the best at anything in this world. Definitely not in school, or sports, or any subjects I took.
But then again, they’re all proofs of learning and trying. I have more than once in my life accepted the fact that I wasn’t good at anything. Only after listening to Mr Nick Vujicic was I able to stop that unlawful belief about myself. Then started a new belief, that someday I will be able to do anything I want in my life, may I be good at it or not won’t matter anymore. Just as long as I let myself cease that moments where I will undeniably learn, fulfill and claim that I am living my life to the fullest.
when I first read this it truly changed how I feel.
then I read again. wrote my opinions and now I want to share this with all of you.
this is the pattern.
Happy reading 🙂
Take charge of your life by beginning something you have always wanted to do. If your goal seems overwhelmming,start small
tell yourself everyday, that God gave you the life that you have right now because He knows you’d be a great captain of his own creation. That you should be responsible to every single things that you do towards your day, yourself and to others
your imagination has no bounderies dreaming about something is the first step toward achieving it
Our minds create things that make us smile, make us happy for a while. better yet, it builds the eagerness that I need everyday in everyway. Eagerness that triggers me to perform well and at my best.
laughter is a direct route to the soul. It broadens your perspective,keeps you healthy, and makes an unbearable situation easier to deal with
main reason why a lot of people rarely see me frown or sad, cause I believe that through laughter and through my smile, I get myself inspired and end up telling myself, “caessie, everything’s going to be fine. in time”. I may not know where I get the strength to smile despite going through some things in my life, but I know why I do, because I have my FAMILY, my FRIENDS and I have GOD.
set your mind to predict success. Tell yourself you WILL succeed at whatever your doing at the moment
I am not the best on the things that I do, but I know just giving every single shot that I have, my full effort, I’ll get there. despite failures I know that at the end of the day, as long as I stand up in every fall, I’ll get ther well equiped
allow yourself to grow by exposing your vulnerability and insecurity dont live strictly inside your comfort zone dont always play it safe
Never settle on the things you just know, or the things you’re good at. Cause you’ll NEVER get to walk further in life if you never allow yourself to discover much more about yourself and your capabilities.
we can always find something that can always be done and we forget how to have fun. make conscious effort to take time off- youll feel refreshed and able to think more clearly afterwards
I know that the best way for us to learn aside from learning from our mistakes, is enjoy the things that you do. no matter how old we get, still, the right to have fun and to enjoy is ours. We can always be a child in heart from time to time.
being paralyzed by indecision is worse than making the wrong decision. you cant grow if you dont trust your inner voice
Definitely a MUST for ourselves in terms of everything in LIFE. before you get to trust others have YOURSELF TRUST YOURSELF. Others will just have to follow. because how we treat ourselves are the reflection of how we want to be treated by others.
try listening to the other persons point of view first, without being preoccupied or distracted. youll really hear what is being said and the other person is more likely to pay attention to your view
have not only your ears to hear each word but a heart to feel each emotion. The best listener is the heart and mind than ears alone.
creativity maintains the balance in our lives. The more we use our creativity the more it develops
relationships are what pull us through the hard times, and make the good times meaningful. Take the time to nurture the connections that uplift you
we’ll meet so many people in our lives, and as the years go by, some will stay a little longer than the others but surely you will all go different directions for some time. And when you meet once again, you’d recognize some of them easily with how they look but some, you’ll recognize because your heart tells you that, that particular person/ people were and still important to you.
humans need touch to survive and thrive. dont forget to hug your loved ones. Pay your friends on the back literally and figuratively
a simple act of care, concern and kindness towards other people doesn’t make you less of a strong person. We must all learn to show how we want to help others physically mentally and most of all, emotionally.
forgiveness is life-giving because it puts you in charge you become empowered
No person has the right NOT to forgive. Everything in life ends in forgiveness as well. It’s God’s forgiveness.
prayer is asking god to transform the situation and become the heart of your life. Take time each day to nurture this connection
God is the greatest shield we have in this world. I rarely go for confessions, literally, but I never fail to ask God for forgiveness because I know I did some things that offended Him as my Creator, Father, and as my God.
We may have so much in life, but at the end of the day, when your time is up, it’s only God, whom we can only have as we enter the gate of heaven.
hope is the knowledge that even in the worst of times we can triumph over hardship and sorrow and grow in spirit hope is what sustains humanity
Hope is far way better than just wishing. HOPING is for those people who does something to achieve their hopes. while WISHING is for those people who are happy enough in just staring on what they wanted to have or wanted to be.
we cant always coose our circumstances but we can choose our attitudes towards them
we are not meant to have everything no matter how rich or poor we are. learning to choose is learning how to decide for ourselves and ending up growing as a reponsible decision maker. Although sometimes we tend to make things hard in choosing though sometimes it’s just between the RIGHT and the WRONG.
admire the good in yourself and in those around you
Appreciating one self is appreciating God. He created you as you are. We tend to complain than to appreciate like how dark our skin colors are or how big our noses are. but you see, you are fortunate to have those, cause there are people out there lacking part of their body yet they manage to live on their lives.
it is not right to tell yourself that you’re worthless. cause every single person has a worth in God’s beautiful creation.
happiness involves giving freely to others and not necessarily wanting something in return
GIVING doesn’t mean you’d receive something back. Giving comes from the heart, giving out the things we no longer need. Giving the things in excess of ours. But most importantly, giving others the love and care they need.
reading removes boundaries
We’re not suppose to know everything. I know that. But reading makes us know the things we need to know. that’ll make us survive. that will make us grow as a person.
words are freedom words are power
one of the things I believe in, in that the best listener to whatever it is that I want to say in my PAPER and PEN. It won’t stop you from talking, won’t object to your arguements and most of all, will tolerate every single thought there is on your mind.
avoid doing something just because everyone thinks you should. Give yourself permission to relax
Since I was in college, I tend to be absent the whole day every birthday that I get to celebrate. What I do, is that I order the largest size of pizza for myself and buy a ticket of different movies during the day in each of the cinemas. I get to relax, and I get to tell myself, someday, I won’t be able to do these kinds of stuff so might as well do it now.
I have been living in UAE for a little more than a year now.
I have spent those days and months living with people I barely know. Yet they showed me kindness and sense of belonging and I will forever be grateful to them. I have spent those resting moments in the lower level of a double deck. I had to wake up early to be able to take a bath with less pressure that someone is already waiting outside for his/her turn to use the bathroom.
I have spent those days and months away from my family yet never did my father’s advice left my mind, heart and soul. He used to tell me “dream high, aim high” and he would also tell me how big of a dreamer I was for a lady. I kept it as a reminder by heart.
So there I was, I tried spreading my wings as I let go of the things I already have. Hoping that I may find my shift in destiny by any chance. Just like any other person, I got bruises along the way, and in each of them is a life’s lesson bound to be learned, by me. I came to a point that I have almost lost hope by I never stopped flipping my wings up and down praying for the wind of my path would start to calm. It did.
God was so great he blessed me with the light which made me see that doorway which leads to a bigger world of challenges and growth. A place where I can see my dreams turning into reality. I have found a less expensive yet so adorable baby blue car, and that covered parking area by my workplace. A big building with a private access I can enter. That brown desk to work at and a boss who trusts his people.
Finding that perfect work, made me found a paradise. But never be blinded with the word for I have my own description of it.
Paradise for me is a place so high I can see almost everything that surrounds me day and night.
Paradise for me is a place with a balcony where I can calmly enjoy my hot cup of coffee in the morning. Where I can just close my eyes and play with my thoughts of life and every day. Reminiscing a little of my past thinking what the future may hold for me.
Paradise for me is a place surrounded by the sea, where I can just spend a moment worrying about nothing in my life. Where I can enjoy taking a little walk or jog just to clear my mind.
As I turn a year older in UAE, away from my family. I have come to realize how blessed I am.
They ask such question because I always smile. I always tend to be so active in everything, outgoing and seems not to run out of things to talk about, words to say, and stories to tell.
Here’s the thing.
Everyday in our lives we meet new people, bond with the people we value, reunite with the people we used to be closed to.
But what’s important is that those times are so rare to have for us to create an impact to those people’s lives. What you do are things they can learn from either in a good or a bad way. Although we always claim to have clean intentions. Anyway, that’s not the main point here, what I am saying is that let us make sure that we always give ourselves the chance and the right to be HAPPY.
To ENJOY LIFE, HAVE FUN, EXPLORE, MAKE MISTAKES, LEARN FROM THEM, CORRECT THEM.
Same way should we also make sure to LIVE LEARN & LOVE.
EVERYDAY. TO EVERYONE. TO WHATEVER SITUATION.
it doesn’t make you a GREAT PRETENDER. Just a GOOD HANDLER.
I do this because there’s something I keep in my mind that I want to share. (something i decided to do after talking with some good friends tonight.)
SMILE despite your problems because not everybody wants to hear what your life is about or what you are going through. You’ll just feel right when you find the people you’d want to let your heartaches out to.
and so why waste the rare chances to SMILE & TO BE HAPPY.
It hurts for everything to end in a snap, but life is a matter of learning to hold though in the end you’re just meant to let it go. Not at the time when you are both happy holding, but when you’re both strong enough to turn backs on each other. Truth is that you are strengthen by the things you went through, strengthen in a different way. Both of you learned much more at the hardest hit of pain.
As for you…
You moved on with that great anger for me ….
You moved on with that powerful pain inside you that turned you so numb.
I’ll be sorry more when i don’t see you happy even with somebody else…
I’ll be sorry more when i don’t get to see you loving even if that means loving another person.
I’ve said all my i love you to you with no hesitations.
I tend to sacrifice even the out most of my dreams.
I tried changing to be right enough for you until it wasn’t the real “ME” anymore
love was enough for us to be together yet it wasn’t enough for our forever.
you and i had those thousands of promises aloud
then again it wasn’t enough for our hearts to hear.
pain was all over us that made us fall not into the ground but out of love.
laughters came to life and made moments to treasure
followed by arguements that threw those painful words to hear
heart breaks became the ghost of confrontation and results to separation.
as for me…..
im right here…
smiling as i see you with another
i smile as my tears fall not from these eyes that looks at you
but from the heart that keeps you ’til now.
i let you go though i dont want to
it’s just that something inside knows how much pain im giving as i offer you everything…
just made tears flow even more when
you found strength in my weakness
you found your happiness in my tears
you found your all when nothing was left with me
you’re not selfish
just goes to show all the things i have done
are not enough
that the love i give was not enough
worst is that i wasn’t enough
