A part of making everyday count in life, is to learn how to stay happy. Happiness and keeping a good attitude will allow you to have great days and eventually a great year.
“You wanna smile. You wanna be happy. You got a lot to be thankful for. But you watch some of the faces around you everyday. And I tell you some of these faces, they will put you in a depressed state of mind.” Les Brown
Having empathy in times of change is vital for self-preservation. That might sound backwards, but allowing ourselves to connect with others and put ourselves in their shoes keeps our hearts open, and with an open heart, we are able to live more congruent lives ourselves that are more aligned with our goals, dreams, etc. When we are in our heart space, and in the heart-mind we are our in our greatest creative space and our own perceptions are presumably the least bias they could be, because we are not so clouded by indoctrination, doubts, fear, insecurities, etc. In a sense, we reverse “perceptual entropy” that is caused by years and years of indoctrination by society.
There are no refunds on the time that you procrastinate. Once it’s gone it’s gone forever. So use it wisely.
When you want to succeed, there are certain things that have to change in your approach to life. You have to become comfortable with difficult situations, you have to raise your level of consciousness and improve the way you behave.
“But by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge…. but it can only emerge if something changes in your state of consciousness.” Oprah Winfrey
In life, our passions are the things that drive us and make us hope for a better tomorrow. Use your passions to fuel you to become better at what you do and initiate that spark to accomplish your given tasks.

Life is filled with choices and the paths we take are dependent on the decisions we make. Good or bad, our decisions lead us down the road to where we end up in life.
“You see everything about you is a result of you doing or not doing, your income, your debt, your relationships, your health, your fitness level, your attitudes and behaviors. Everything.”
Non-attachment isn’t dimming your fire or passion. It isn’t denying how you feel. It is merely taking the steps necessary to discipline yourself to not stay IN one emotion, because we’re not meant to. Our natural state is neutral (no coincidence they are such similar words) and to remain balanced; and practicing non-attachment allows us to live a more balanced life.
Are you having a hard time forgiving someone? This might inspire you to make it happen!
Don’t lose yourself in the noise and clutter of your surrounding environment.
“Someone asked me once, or many times I think, what I found it meant to be an artiste, and I said it’s what I think an artist means essentially more than discipline, or even talent is a perspective.”
