MOST OF LIFE IS NOT LIVED AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN.......LET YOURSELF HAVE FUN....Broken.....I AM NOT PERFECT...

Regardless of the cause….God seems to take those broken times of our lives as a time to begin the process of building something far more fabulous than we ever dreamed of before…..Starting Over can be a good thing when what we had before was not our Best Life….

God works best with broken people it seems…..He can create something magnificent out of broken pieces that one would never have dreamed possible. Yes, it is out of brokenness that great and beautiful lives are often built….

 

I AM NOT PERFECT…..I JUST PRETEND TO BE…

I am simply not perfect and I am proud of it…Yes, I do strive to be my best self….I strive to be all that I can be….but I know that I am human and am simply not perfect. I am comfortable being perfectly imperfect……and that is the way I am….When People expect too much from themselves they tend to push relationships away rather than towards them….

There are people that pretend to be perfect….They don’t want to let you see any flaws. Those people are simply not being real…..And that is OK for them….but it surely is not OK for me….The “I am not perfect….but I just pretend to be” is not the best way to be……It is simply a cover up for an insecure person….For no one has a perfect life or a perfect anything even though they may try to pretend to be.

So if you meet one of those types who pretend they have the perfect life….simply know that they don’t……They may have a wonderful life….but no one’s is perfect…..Just simply be content being perfectly imperfect…

 

WHEN YOU MEET UP WITH DISCOURAGEMENT….

We all can get discouraged….Especially if we have tried over and over and met up with failure….Discouragement happens in everyone’s lives if they are pursuing anything that is truly worthwhile……When we meet up with discouragement what do we do? Do we give up? Do we keep on going?

When discouragement happens we simply have to give ourselves a moment or two to feel the way we are feeling….Not to deny that feeling, but also not to live in that feeling for very long. I think a little of “feeling sorry” for ourselves is not always a bad thing….but I think to live in that ongoing is not a good thing…

Once one has past the “feeling sorry” for themselves then it is time to get back up, brush oneself off, and get back out there with a solid and even better plan……Sometimes we have to change our goals, sometimes we simply have to refine our goals, and sometimes we have to create a new map to get to our goals….

Life is about ups, downs, ins and outs……but it is also about Successes…..When we are discouraged we have to look back at our successes in life and know that everyone including ourselves will meet up with discouragement from time to time….The key is to never give up on a positive lifestyle….for a positive and happy lifestyle is not linked to just one situation…..A positive lifestyle is linked to many wonderful and different situations in life…..And so when one does not work out there are still lots more different ones that will….
