Become the Violet

forgiveness-quote-mark-twain

Make this the year that you decide to forgive. But in doing so, don’t forget to forgive yourself. I think it’s actually easier to forgive others than ourselves, but it’s just as important.

I’ve written about forgiveness probably many times and that’s because I believe it’s a very important step for a happy and balanced life. And I think it’s a great way to begin each year.

Think about this beautiful quote by Mark Twain and envision being a violet and giving out to the universe the fragrance of forgiveness. You will be so much more at peace with yourself if you do.

Shed Your Skin

short-quotes-about-Being-Happy-in-Life

There’s a new you waiting, so go ahead and shed your old skin and fly as high as you dare.

Improving ourselves is part of why we’re here, and there’s nothing wrong with changing old ways that don’t suit us anymore. We need to broaden our horizons and not be afraid to discard old stubborn ways of thinking for new, balanced, and maybe even kinder ways of thinking and being.

Even in your job you can make changes for the better. I remember when I worked with people who wouldn’t change the way they did things because that was the way it had always been done, and this was even if it wasn’t working that well anymore. Shedding old ways can improve how we perform our jobs, react to others, and feel about our life in general. Change is all about growing.

Don’t let your mind, family, or even society keep you from growing into the person you were meant to be. Life becomes stagnant if change never happens. It’s exciting to shake things up and live your life a little bit differently. It feels like renewal because it is regeneration. But remember, only you have the power, so go use it!
