Quote Of The Day: I Am Beautiful….

Image Courtesy of LouiseHay.com

It’s not the easiest each day as the world is constantly reminding us that we are lacking in beauty or gaining in size. Time is not on our side and nobody loves you…. Therefore, you must change yourself so people can love you.

Well, that’s a bit harsh, right?

To be honest, I grew up feeling that way and as an adult, sometimes, I still felt the same. It’s the toughest when others would make negative remarks, thinking they were doing you a favour.

Let’s remember this…..

You’re beautiful!

Photo Of The Day: Smiling, Lights Out!

The UV lights went out and normally, my bearded dragon would just wait to be taken out. This instance, he suddenly opened up his mouth and smiled. Awww! I just had to take a picture!

Quote Of The Day: Taken Advantage

Image Courtesy of Picture Quote

It’s the worse when you are doing something you love. Therefore, you pour your heart and soul into the work to make sure it goes smoothly. So, when the higher ups decide to reduce your original benefits, you tell yourself that you understand and keep going. They say that more benefits shall increase as you prove your abilities. You nod and keep going….

Then this happens again….Despite being told that your skills and abilities are unbelievably talented and hardworking….. it happens again….

Sigh…. I have to blame myself for enjoying what I do too much… How frustrating and disappointing!

Photo Of The Day: Double Bloom

Together we bloom

Side by side

Under the summer

Sun and clouds

Even when it

Rains

Hard

We are together.

Quote Of The Week: Act Of Kindness

Image Courtesy of Purewow

To help others and to treat others with kindness are two main goals of life, according to me. I try my best to help others in need and to treat people with kindness to make the world a better place.

There are many times where my kindness is laughed at and my heart is broken by some who have taken advantage of my kindness.

Some may say that I am too generous or too weak, which enables those entitled folks to believe that they have the upper hand in life.

In reality, I am able to stand up and be proud that I am able to make a positive change in this world. Each small act of kindness and generosity spreads even more positivity in this negative world.

Quote Of The Day: Blame And Karma

Image Courtesy of Anandway

For those who got blamed for most of the bad situations or happenings around the home or work place, this quote would be a good reminder. It often only took one or two mistakes. Then, from then on, those toxic family or friends to continue to point fingers at that particular Individual for all the future problems.

Let’s be honest. Who didn’t make any mistakes in their life? No one was perfect ever. Constantly, harassing others gave those people with low sense of self-worth a big ego boost. Instead of supporting others, stepping over others like stepping stones made them feel better and more superior.

When others made mistakes, it’s important to be kind about it. It could be frustrating. However, would you prefer to destroy the relationship and have no more future with that individual.

Or would you want that individual to curse you under the breath and look for a time to have their revenge?

However, this quote was a great way to face those who weren’t able to remove themselves from their chronic offenders. Sometimes, it’s not always possible to cut those toxic people out because of certain situations. Life could be complicated and cruel.
