Don’t give up

Standard

If you feel like giving up when doors keep closing in your face, when you  have been treated unfairly when things seem precarious, when the good things you do turn out wrong, when others let you down when you needed them and the reasons could go on and on.  Just remember all those disappointments can be turned around, I myself have faced some similar situations with next to little or no help at all. I used the disappointment to fire me up to prove not just to myself but those who I felt hurt by that I can still do the things I need and want to do with or without them

 So, no matter what you’re going through how hard things may seem you still have a choice give up and do nothing or stand up for yourself and do the very thing that others are trying to stop and put you off doing. Just work twice as hard for yourself to get what you need and want

 It takes courage to face the things that make you feel a sense of fear; fear of things not working out fear of having money problems; fear of doing things alone, etc . All those fears are just floating in your mind and can be dispelled with positive actions. So be careful not to let your fears and disappointments put you off what you need to do; and don’t give up on yourself because of others or situations not going how you wanted them to, stay positive and keep doing what you need to do to better yourself.

What is at stake?

Standard

What does one do,
When their feelings are real,
But the one they are towards,
Doesn’t know how you feel?

The answer seems easy,
But there’s too much at stake,
I’ve been wondering if,
It’s a risk I should take.

Given time, questions will unfold

 And show the answers held within them.

Courage

Standard

Courage is leaving a secure job to follow your dreams or travel the world

Courage is having a kind heart in a cruel world

Courage is leaving an abusive relationship or even a loving relationship when it’s not quite right for you

Courage is breaking society rules and taking the road less traveled by

Courage is telling your boss no when you sense there is something illegal or just plain wrong

Courage is waking up with a smile on your face when you are at the end of your rope

Courage is leaving your hiding place, taking off your mask, and let the world see the real you

Courage is the ability to strengthen yourself against the fear and despair of life, rather than be drowned by it

Courage is standing up for your values, ideas and morals against what is right in a sea of people that embrace what is wrong.
