Don't Worry

I recently heard some one offer support after a break up "You seem to be worrying about someone who isn't worried about you."   I replaced "worried" with "thinking" and get the same response

No longer will I allow someone from my past influence my future.  He's well into the past and I'm certain he's not worrying about me.

From jobs, friends, relationships, etc: when it's over, let it go - odd are they already have

What if

I used to say "once I earn..." or "when I finish.." or even "once this is over I'll.."

Why keep waiting?  How many times have we/I heard "live for the moment?  

Let that moment be now!!  

A friend of mine is in prison and he recently shared "I spent the day as usual, made tea, meditated, worked the program (he's in AA).  He has a release date yet never says "when i'm out I'll.." He lives for each day, seeks good out of his situation.

There's times I felt like I was in a prison where I let situations dictate my actions and progress.

No more "what if's for me." I see a need for change, for growth and I jump on it.

Let's leap, that leap of faith, and drop our what ifs

Not Weakness

I read this after talking with someone who's break up is difficult. Thus the name "BREAK up"

Have you faced difficulties only to feel like a failure? I know I have. It's my self affirming life that keeps me going.   I hope my friend doesn't give up and neither will I..  Are you in for trying one more time, too?

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
