The piece below is very long but so encouraging. Very poweful, inspirational and timely. I doff my cap for the writer and pray that his/her pen will never run dry. God bless you all.
Learn to ignore and overlook many things if you truly want happiness in life because the easiest way to a miserable life is to think that everybody is talking about you.
Never allow anyone to steal your joy from you.
What people say behind your back is none of your business as long as you are true to yourself. Never worry yourself about that.
Sometimes minding your own business does not keep people out of your business.
No matter your situation in life people will always talk. You can never stop people from talking about you, what you can do is to stop giving them what to talk about.
There is a time limit for every rumor in life. Never allow freelance broadcasters put your life on hold. Do what makes you happy. Anyone who cannot feel your pain, has no right to judge you in life. Seventy percent of those who talk bad about you behind your back, wish to be like you.
When people can't be like you they try to bring you down and condemn what you have. Those without money will sarcastically say money is not everything in life. (Is poverty anything?)
Never allow anyone to put you in a position of depression and self pity in life. Those whose life has no joy will always find every means to remove happiness from other people's life.
If there is the GRACE of GOD in your life, then enemies are inevitable. If no one has ever gossiped or talked bad about you, it means nothing good has ever happened to you.
Never feel bad when old friends become new enemies. They are just tired of pretending to be friends.
Never allow the opinions of people who didn't see your tears stop your laughter in life. You don't owe anybody an explanation to be happy.
Never see yourself through the eyes of those who don't value you.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. To stand out is to be out-standing. You do not need to be accepted by others. You just need to accept yourself.
Never beg anyone to accept you for who you are. Anything you acquire through begging will require begging to maintain or retain.
Be humble but selective. Being selective doesn't mean you are arrogant or proud. It simply means you know your worth. If you are conscious of your personality avoid too much familiarity.
Sometimes when you treat people too much like celebrities, they end up treating you like an ordinary person. You are equally important.
Never downgrade yourself while trying to upgrade anybody in life. Anyone who sees you like an option doesn't deserve to be a priority in your life.
The dream of a fool is for everybody to become a bloody fool like himself. Avoid negative people if you have a dream. Those without mission will say your vision is just an illusion.
Negative minds will never give you a positive life. Anyone who is always reminding you about what is wrong with you has a personal problem which he/she wants to take out on you.
Most people spend half of their entire life analysing the faults in other people's life, when their own lives need urgent repairs.
Never worry yourself about enemies and friends, because everybody in your life will eventually fall into one of the two categories.
Some will hate you and some will love you. Loving you or hating you are both in your favour. When people love you, you live peacefully and happily in their hearts, and when people hate you, you become the landlord in their head living painfully in their brain everyday and giving them sleepless nights.
The best awaits you in 2017!
