“I’ve always been fascinated by memory and dreams because they are both completely our own. No one else has the same memories, no one else has the same dreams.”
I thought of reviving the wonderful writings of SJ which made a great difference in peoples’ lives since we started our journey a couple of years back. I’m sure these writings will transform many more lives.
LIVE FOR YOURSELF
This fact all of us have to affirm in our heart and mind. Our life is a unique gift of God and we must make the best of it. As you wake up every morning look at the mirror and admire yourself for confronting the most beautiful person. Just smile and say “I’m lucky that God has given me another day to live life meaningfully.” This will not only enliven your spirit but also boost up your morale.
After a pleasant morning prayer open your wardrobe to pick the attire which you think is going to be a perfect fit for you and comfy as well. Dress up for yourself not for the world. Dress includes not just clothes but a pretty smile to adorn your looks as well. Your smile increases your face value.
Prioritise your day’s tasks and go about doing it. “Will people like the way I do it? Should I change myself? Will it improvise my working style?”-these questions are sure to pose a hurdle. Just cross them and yes of course you have to change-not others or for others. But change the way you think. Make independent decisions and be confident about them. Then see how success knocks at your door.
Satisfying others is quite easy than satisfying your inner self. You will feel defeated if you don’t live for yourself. Enjoy life to the fullest by doing all crazy things you wanna do. Singing loudly and dancing, watching cartoons, buying your favourite assets. You have to project yourself as you are. Seeing your attitude people will flog around you. Another important thing is stop explaining about yourself to people who don’t understand or care about you. People who really love you will stay by you come what may.
BE YOURSELF, LOVE YOURSELF AND BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
