You are too hard on yourself!

You are too hard on yourself!

Believe it or not, some days you might sink low and believe everyone else is better than you. And that's okay. 
Everyone has a different story to tell and just because you don't have what you want right now doesn't mean it won't come to the light and/or you can't or won't get it.
It's not too late!
Make the choice today to be what you want to.
Other people might try to put you off doing a particular thing; you've just got to stand up for yourself and be proud. It might not be what they would do in your situation, but everybody is different. People will try to dampen your dreams but don't let them.
Just hold your head up high. You know where you're going. You know what you want and though you may not know how to go about getting it right now - that's Ok. Life is something we learn on the job. 
That is true of our dreams too. Oftentimes people give up on their dreams because they no longer believe themselves capable of it. People will have told them it's unrealistic and lost their belief in it long before life has gotten in the way.
There are fighters though. If you are one, you will have had to grit your teeth sometimes and just be confident enough to listen to your heart instead of your head. It isn't just other people who will try to dampen your hopes and dreams. Everyone has a voice inside their heads but that is an inside critic and one you can answer very firmly.

Situations arise at any time

Situations can arise at any time. 


Here is another inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk and I think you will be inspired by Steph's videos on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkoz1yev_apPjE8XcVrjyjA/videos

You can never be sure when something will strike.

You can be dealing with a big problematic event when little ones can occur and you think it’s just to rub it in. I know it can feel burden-heavy. But that’s Ok. Feeling weighed down is not good for you, so try to take everything one step at a time. But I know it’s a real pain when everything comes at the same time. That’s how life seems to work; I see it as a positive thing. 

When you’re in the midst of things; challenges and the like, problems that would have otherwise held you up are accomplished without much thought. You don't even recognise how much you accomplish. The things that would usually swamp you, you just do because there's no way around it. 

So at hard times give yourself some credit. You've probably done something that you thought you weren't capable of years ago. Maybe you're finding things you used to do with ease a bit of a struggle now - that's Ok. Things change. And just because you can't do something as easily as you used to doesn't mean your inferior or not useful anymore - it just means it's time to slow down.

Having an overall plan is a good thing

Having an overall plan is a good thing, like where you want to go and what you want to do in life, but planning everyday in intimate detail is a downfall in my eyes. You can't account for everything that occurs in life. You might have to put plans on hold for a while, because something different has happened now. 

Things arise all the time that you never thought could/would happen. Life is not always under our control. And that is frustrating. And we can't always do much to change that. Accept life as it comes and treat any little bump as you would naturally. Don't let it change who you are.
