If you try to get somewhere!

If you try to get somewhere!

If you try to get somewhere, I can’t promise you’ll get anywhere fast, but if you’re trying you will eventually get there. It might not be where you set off to get to, but that’s ok because plans change their course throughout our lives so we never really know where we’re headed anyway. 

Your journey may take many unprecedented twists and turns, but will always lead you to the right circumstance.

You may fall many times, but the true power lies in the strength that you can maintain to get back up and keep going.

I could go down the negative perspective to try to get you to see that negativity is not the way to go, but why would I do that when I’m trying to boost you up? The people who speak negatively are trying to tear you down. 

Don’t let them. Rise above it. 

They are below you for the very reason that they’re now trying to drag you down. Because they view life negatively and are getting nowhere.

Keep thinking and acting positively and you will reap rewards and they (the negatives) will have to shout to be heard. Just keep going on your own path and the negatives will disappear into the distant background. 

Be happy with who you are because we only get one chance at life. True, we did not choose our family but we can choose who our friends are. 

We can’t choose where we came from, but we can choose where we’re going. But as I’ve said, we often get pulled off track to go somewhere else. Don’t resist the changes, let them happen and who knows you might end up happier on this path than the one you were on before.
