A rewarding life is a life worth living. It means different things to different people. What is rewarding to me is not rewarding to you. But whether we know it or not, a rewarding life is what we want for ourselves and others.
Comparing yourself to yourself is the best thing you can do for yourself. Why would you compare yourself to others? Why would you do that to yourself? If you want to enjoy your life, to know yourself, to know what you want, to know why you live, to be happy, you MUST stop comparing your yourself to others. Live your life, and focus on what really matters to you.
When you avoid the pain of taking responsibility for your actions, for your mistakes, for your failures, for your messed up relationships, for your life, you are not making things better for yourself and the people around you, you are making it worse. Avoiding a problem is not the same thing as finding a solution to a problem. The best way to handle a problem is to face it. If you don’t face it, it will get worse.
If you want to keep growing, you must keep loving. If you want to keep growing in your life, you must keep loving. You must find a way to share your love. Love is everything. If you want love, you must first give love to others.
Your story matters. But the real question is, “Who is telling your story? What are you telling yourself? What are you believing about yourself? What are you telling the people around you- your friends, your relatives, your coworkers, your managers or bosses? What are you believing about your life? What?
“We are born to love.” But if we don’t take care of our love, what do you think will happen to it? Is it going to survive or die? Is it going to keep growing or keep shrinking?
Do you have a garden? If you have one, are you growing it? Are you nurturing your garden? Are you weeding your garden?
Embrace it. Embrace your life. It does not matter what it is, just embrace it. Why? Because if you don’t embrace something, you won’t enjoy it.
