Monday Thoughts: New Direction

As you may know, I love to inspire and encourage people. We all face our own daily struggles and happenings we try to deal with in the best way we can.

I say goodbye to Monday Motivation with this post and just share my thoughts each Monday.  I came across this interesting video and wanted to share it with you.

Stay inspired as best as you can.

Thoughtful Thursday: Sensitivity

“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
― Anthon St. Maarten

Thoughtful Thursday: Hardship

“Don’t be too quick to draw conclusions from what happens to you; simply let it happen. Otherwise it will be too easy for you to look with blame… at your past, which naturally has a share with everything that now meets you.”

Thoughtful Thursday: Decisions

“It’s not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What’s hard, she said, is figuring out what you’re willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about.”
