Moving ON.....

When I know things are not meant for me, I learn to let go...It doesn't mean that I am weak but I'm just showing how strong I am to fight the urge of wanting something I'm not supposed to have.

Then, until one morning, you'll wake up and find yourself thinking about something else, and then you'll know, the worst is over. Your heart might be bruised, but it will recover and become capable of seeing the beauty of life once more...

The Difference Between Pleasure and Happiness

A thick wad of P1000 bills gives pleasure.
A chocolate parfait with thick chocolate syrup gives pleasure.

A fun movie, with a bucket of popcorn on the side, gives pleasure.

A kiss gives pleasure.

What’s the difference between pleasure and happiness?

Pleasure is an outside job. But happiness is an inside job.

It doesn’t depend on any external circumstances. Happiness isn’t the absence of problems.

Happiness isn’t an emotion either.

Happiness is a way of life.

As I observed, there are seven great things I see in extremely happy people.

1. Happy people create their destiny

2. Happy people like themselves a lot

3. Happy people nurture connections

4. Happy people find delight everywhere

5. Happy people embrace change

6. Happy people trust deeply

7. Happy people work their purpose daily

A soulful rendition of Starting Over Again by Aiza Seguerra. A personal favorite of mine.

Step forward right now.....

A thousand disappointments in the past cannot equal the power of one positive action right now. Go ahead and go for it. If you've previously told yourself that it can be done, this is the moment to change your assumption. When you can dream it, imagine it and visualize it, you can do it. Instead of making excuses, make some progress. Instead of looking back with regret, step forward with enthusiasm. Choose to define yourself based on the person you know you can become. Choose to see your life in terms of the best of what is possible. If you focus too much on the past, you'll be held back by limitations that may no longer even exist. Instead, look forward with positive expectation, and you'll find yourself quickly moving in a forward direction. A new fulfilling reality is calling to you. Step forward right now, and begin to make it happen.
