Get Sick of Wishing

Today I would like to encourage you to get sick of wishing. Why? Because wishing will take you nowhere. The secret to life, apart from knowing what you want, is taking action towards what you want.

So get sick of wishing for better health. Know that great health is in your hands by making better choices, by choosing healthy foods, by making the effort to exercise, by choosing to educate yourself in regards to any medications you are taking, any illness you may have and educating yourself in regards to the body.

Get sick of wishing for a better relationship. Work everyday on the relationship that you have because you are part of the equation of making that relationship work. If the relationship just isn’t working anymore, know that you have two choices- you either put in the effort it takes to make the relationship better or you decide it’s best to part ways. Either way relationship is work and great things do require effort. Also work on cultivating that relationship. Relationships need to be nurtured in order to thrive.

Get sick of wishing you had a better job and either make the best of the job you have or change it. Complaining all the time about the job that you have doesn’t help. It just helps at the moment because you are releasing the tension that you are feeling but what are you doing to change the situation? That is what matters most, what you are doing right now to change the situation.

Get sick of wishing you had a better life. I personally don’t believe in the could’ve, would’ve, should’ve. You either are or you’re not, you either do or you don’t, you either know or you don’t. That life that you want is in your hands. Let me repeat, that life that you want is in your hands. It’s not in someone else’s hands. It’s not in someone else’s power. You have the power to decide what you will do with your life.

Get sick of wishing for more because if you want more, you have to go get it. Many people want more, who doesn’t but it is not a matter of wanting more, it is a matter of doing more.

Yes, get sick of wishing. Your well-being depends on it because for as long as you are wishing, you might as well just keep on waiting. Life is not for those who wish, it is for those who do- so get sick of wishing.

What to Look For When Choosing People For Your Life

This post is especially important for me and for everyone but this area of our life seems to be one that we neglect or may not see its importance. One area that we constantly overlook when it comes to our well-being is our social life. Our social life when it comes to our well-being includes ALL relationships- family, friends and even our romantic partners. Because this area impacts greatly our well-being, today I would like to discuss what to look for when choosing people for your life.

Each and every one of us are different. However, there are certain basic things that we all need from everyone that we allow into our life and there are certain things that one must take into consideration when choosing friends, the family that we choose to spend a lot of time with and especially when choosing your romantic mate.

First, choose people with integrity. The definition of integrity is whole and honest. With this said, choose people who are whole because those are the people who will have so much love to give to you. These are people who have nothing but beautiful things to share about themselves. Also choose people who are honest. Honesty is a big one because to be honest with others, one must first be honest with themselves and sometimes being honest with oneself can be difficult for some.

Choose people that care about you for you, not for what you can offer them materialistically or anything of that sort. People who choose what you have to offer materialistically and not what you have to offer mentally, emotionally and spiritually will not last in your life. As a matter of fact, those people the moment you cut off whatever it is that they came after will disappear from your life and that is great because you don’t need them anyways. Those that love you for you won’t care if you don’t have anything material to offer to them. Your presence alone will be enough and what a gift your presence can be!

Choose people who love themselves and their life. You can only give what you have so when you have no love for you and your life, you can’t possibly have love for others. Those that love themselves will be able to provide you with a healthy love.

Choose people who are forgiving and have compassion. In every relationship, meaning interaction that you have with others, there will be, let me repeat, there will be disagreements, arguments and moments where you will be upset with the person. Holding on to a grudge or anger doesn’t serve anyone. A mature person has the capacity to see both sides of the story and be able to forgive and move on. There are certain circumstances where there is an exception like when someone betrays you or shows qualities that are big no-nos and you just simply can’t tolerate that in your life. For everything else, choose someone who knows how to forgive, have compassion and understanding.

Relationships are one of the pillars of well-being. It is important to know how to choose the people that you allow in your life as well as what to look for when choosing those people.
