Forgive The Past

This is not going to be a long post, just a quick word to the wise (if you read my words you must be wise…right?).

Make peace with the past, so it doesn’t ruin your present. I am a person who always insists on not stressing myself over past events as I’ve come to realize that burdening my thoughts with the happenings of the past leaves me with less space to be awesome and enjoy my present occurrences. Do you really want your time to be wasted on the persons/happenings of the past? Or do you instead want to move on, enjoy the present and make a better future?

I don’t know about you but the answer for me is clear. In the words of almost every small time Italian gangster on tv, “Forget about it”. The bad at least, don’t forget the lessons learnt, don’t forget the the persons who have let you down, forgive them though. Forgive your past. Make peace with your past. Don’t beat yourself up about what could have been. Focus instead on what will be, what you can be. Aim to be a better person from the lessons you’ve learnt, the hurt you’ve felt, the ‘friends’ you’ve lost.

For you to forgive the past is not going to be an easy issue. But it is something which can and should be done. in order to move on, this is something which you must do. Do it. TODAY. The year is almost ending so what better time to get a fresh start than now?

What Would It Take to Make You Happy?

In this day and age more than any period of time prior, us humans find ourselves striving to find our own happiness, attempting to reach that ideal lifestyle that is a perfect balance between health, wealth, and love. In order to reach that ideal balance, we drive ourselves to obtain, accumulate, and conquer every obstacle that comes our way, but it seems that with every threshold we cross, every door we enter a new emptiness lurks, so we constantly ask ourselves, where do we find that abundant life that evades us? Why do we not feel fulfilled despite all our accomplishments.

Is it that we’re seeking the wrong things when it comes to our fulfillment? Love, money, friendship, does it all mean anything? Or is it that the only thing that truly matters is our happiness?

Picture yourself truly happy…what do you think you must do to achieve that state of contentment?

Major Cause of Failure #7

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are a bit late in bringing yesterday’s post. However, here we present day 7 in our month long series of inspirational posts on the ’31 Major Causes of Failure’

Unfavourable Environmental Influences During Childhood

“As the twig is bent, so shall the tree grow.” If you grew up in a bad environment then chances are that you’ll succumb to negative influences when you grow older. This is of course a hindrance to your drive to succeed and to get money.

I’m no longer a Sagitaurian :-(

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, wait never mind because even the most reclusive individual knows that the Zodiac is supposed to change today…So, I lived the last 24 years as a Sagitaurian which was awesome to me. However this afternoon I find out I’m no longer a Sagitaurian but I am now under the Ophiuchus sign Nov 29-Dec 17…my initial reaction was wth? First we lose Pluto and now I am under a sign that sounds like we’re complaining? (admit it it does sound  like O-fuck-us!)

Upon further studies however it shows that I have really lost nothing by way of traits under the Zodiac as those under the rule of the Serpentius (yes thats right) sign are said to be:

“healers of men and a doctor of medicine or science.  They seek higher education and enlightenment. They are expected to achieve a high position in life. They are envied by peers and favored by authority figures.” Sounds eerily like me….

Now that you know this you new Ophiucus persons out there can move beyond your identity crises.

Under the revised zodiac, the following dates would apply:

Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18- May 13
Taurus: May 13- June 21
Gemini: June 21- July 20
Cancer: July 20- Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10- Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16- Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30- Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23- Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29- Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17- Jan. 20

Who’s Got Your Back? (via Mental Trips)

You know a piece is well written when a year down the line you can look back at it and feel inspiration from it. This is what I experienced with this post. Who has your back?

There comes a time in everyone's life when they are faced with difficult decisions. When they arrive at that proverbial crossroads and are uncertain how to proceed. At this point it is usually helpful if we have the support of a strong network of family and friends to assist us and to give us a little advice and a nudge or two if we end up slacking. What do you do when you don't have that family network to rely on? If it is your family that has t … Read More
