BUZZ! BUZZ! Time to get up. You roll over and turn off the alarm and lay there for a couple of minutes clearing your mind and trying to get a course for what you have to do today. Ok you have it figured out so you head for the john to drain the fluids from your bursting bladder.
Now you are standing at the sink washing your hands and you look in the mirror. Then these words come to mind’
I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I am asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and make a change
Who is that man/woman in the mirror that you are looking at? Is he/she happy? Is he/she where he/she wants to be in life? When is the last time he/she really enjoyed life? Does he/she believe in him/herself? Does he believe in him/herself?
If you don’t believe in yourself then it really doesn’t matter what the answers were to the other questions. If you want to succeed and enjoy a happy and fulfilled life you have to believe in yourself. You the man/woman! You are in charge! Grab the day by the horns and make it YOUR day.
Ok now look in the mirror and tell that person in the mirror, This is your day and no one is going to PP on your parade. Any and all negativity is no longer allowed. If the day is ruined it will be because you were weak and let it happen. Whose life is it? Your life. Do you believe? Yes! In what? ME!!!!! I can’t hear you! MEEEEEE!!!
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” – Marcus Aurelius
So now you believe in yourself. Good on you. That is where it starts. Now to maintain the road of happiness. Most folks now a days try to find happiness through material things.
‘Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right, ’cause we are
Living in a material world
And I am a material girl,
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl – Madonna Material Girl
Be still. Listen real close. Hear that? Ba-beat, ba- beat, ba-beat. That is your heart beating within you. Giving you life. Pumping the essence of life through your veins so that you may enjoy life. This is where you will find true happiness. Within yourself. You don’t need that new boat, new car, new dress, new golf clubs, etc.. No siree. You need a soft, gentle, caring heart. A heart that cares about others.
“Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.” – Carol Burnett
If you don’t believe in yourself, and feel you need to change the direction of your walk in life, look no further than inside yourself. There you will find the answers to “you”.
Don’t forget to “spread the love”.
