Via her blog and social media platforms, there are and have been lots of inspiring and wonderful words shared by an author who I follow on Instagram and Snapchat, and who is soon to be on her book tour, starting off in a few days. She often gives honest accounts of motherhood, shares delicious recipes, and talks about the importance of not letting naysayers get in the way… My sister and I, along with friends, had the delight of attending her wedding a few years ago. Since then, to see how far she’s come, grown, and built an amazing community of women, from mums-to-be, to wives, sisters, and mothers, is extraordinary! Long may it continue. ✨
Which reminds me, received the below and thought to share.
The easiest way to a miserable life is to think everybody is talking about you. Learn to ignore and overlook many things if you truly want happiness in life.
Never allow anyone to steal your joy from you.
Never worry yourself about what people say behind your back because its none of your business as long as you are true to yourself.
Sometimes minding your own business does not keep people out of your business.
There is a time limit for every rumour in life. Never allow freelance broadcasters to put your life on hold. Do what makes you happy. Anyone who cannot feel your pain, has no right to judge you in life. 70% of those who talk badly about you behind your back, wish to be like you.
When people can’t be like you they try to bring you down and condemn what you have.
Never allow anyone to put you in a position of depression and self pity in life. Those whose life has no joy will always find every means to remove happiness from other people’s life.
If no one has never gossiped or talked badly about you it means nothing good has ever happened to you. Grace can turn an old friend to a new enemy.
Never feel bad when old friends become new enemies. They are just tired of acting painfully like enemies as friends.
Never allow the opinions of people who didn’t see your tears stop your laughter in life. You don’t owe anybody an explanation to be happy.
Never see yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. To stand out is to be out-standing. You do not need to be accepted by others. You just need to accept yourself.
Never beg anyone to accept you for who you are. Anything you acquire through begging will require begging to maintain.
Be humble but selective. Being selective doesn’t mean you are arrogant or proud. It simply means you know your worth. If you are conscious of your personality avoid too much familiarity.
Sometimes when you treat people too much like celebrities, they end up treating you like ordinary fans. You are equally important.
Never downgrade yourself while trying to upgrade anybody in life. Anyone who sees you like an option doesn’t deserve to be a priority in your life.
The dream of a fool is for everybody to become a fool. Avoid negative people if you have a dream. Those without mission will say your vision is just an illusion.
Negative minds will never give you a positive life. Anyone who is always reminding you about what is wrong with you has a personal problem which he/she wants to take out on you.
Most people spend half of their entire life analyzing the faults in other peoples life, when their own lives need urgent repairs.
Never worry yourself about enemies and friends, because everybody in your life will eventually fall into one of two categories.
Some will dislike you and some will love you. Loving you or disliking you are both in your favour. When people love you, you live peacefully and happily in their heart; and when people dislike you, you become the landlord in their head living painfully in their brain everyday and giving them sleepless nights.
Never allow negative people to rent a space in your life, kick them out of your life and increase the rent.
