KEEP GOING!

No matter what you do, how many times you screw up and think to yourself, “There’s no point to carry on”, no matter how many people tell you that you can’t do it – keep going. Don’t quit.

Don’t quit, because a month from now you will be that much closer to your goal than you are now. Yesterday you said tomorrow. Make today count!

Try this today: Close your eyes, and think of someone who has been a strong influence and is important to you, and who made a positive impact on your life–maybe a family member, a love, a teacher, a friend.
Are your eyes closed? They aren’t if you’re reading this. Work with me, friends! Close them and think before reading on. …

Okay, now write down a few sentences about why that person is special to you, as if describing the person to someone else. We can all take a minute or two to do this, especially if that person really meant something to us. Have you written down your thoughts? Okay…now read on.
* * *
Watch this video. NO CHEATING! You must have first closed your eyes, thought of that person, and written down your thoughts. THEN watch this, and follow their lead.

6 Ways To Make Sure You Don’t Hate Your Life And Actually Enjoy It And Stuff

Neil Gaiman has a voice that would calm a cat in a cold shower. He also has an epic graduation speech that gives me chills every time I watch it. My favorite bit starts at 9:40. I’d give you other timestamps, but honestly? This whole thing is wonderful.

The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of life is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give. The joy of life is to love.

The Two-Word Manifesto of Self-Care : Love Yourself

Love yourself. When you need tender care. When you are tired & upset. When you feel uncomfortable in your skin. When you feel unlovable. When you feel alone. When you’ve had a rough day. When everything feels wrong. When the love you need can only be described as “tough love.” When you watch the sun lighten the sky. When a kitten snuggles up beside you. When you take that first sip of coffee. When you step into that wonderful hot shower. When you’re sitting on the bus, on the metro, walking to the office. When you are answering phone call after phone call, replying to e-mails without end. When your co-workers make you crazy. When you come out of a meeting that can only be labeled Victory. When you make plans with a dear friend. When you walk under the sunlight. When you stretch your arms up to reach the sky. When you wrap yourself up in blankets. When you close your eyes for the night. When you realize you’ve been blessed with 24 amazing hours. When you realize that tomorrow’s promise is limitless. Love yourself. Give yourself permission: to take a mental health day, not do the laundry, wash the dishes tomorrow, walk slowly & not rush from place to place or thought to thought. To breathe deeply, to watch an episode of your favorite TV show, to close the door, to take time to yourself so that you will be refreshed. To say no, to honor your boundaries, to be honest with the people around you, to say I love you, to hold the ones you love close & to say goodbye to the ones that need to leave. To begin a new chapter, or just turn the page of the chapter you’re in. Love yourself.
