The Indispensable Things Of Life: Desiderata

Don't be overly self-critical. You are part of an all-encompassing universe and no less important than any other component within it. You may not realize this, but there is a pre-determined and right path that the universe is following.

109 4 7 inspiration

Be relentless in your journey for success. Love all and make friends along the way. Be sure to speak your truth and be true to yourself. Listen, even to those who seem dull, and also to those who make those toxic noises of ignorant complains; like a cat watching a mouse hole when the mouse is long gone. There is always something new and amazing to learn and discover – see every situation and everybody as a new opportunity.

Keep calm (and eat pizza) rather than lower yourself to the bottom levels of loud and aggressive people – they’re toxic. Every other person you compare yourself with is special, just like you are special too. So rather than becoming bitter and vain about what you think isn’t good enough about yourself, celebrate your uniqueness. There is honestly much to be appreciated – give yourself some credit too.

Whatever you do to feed yourself and your family, be thankful for. In the ever changing fortunes of time, a business or career is a real possession to have. Be careful with the affairs of your business, for the tricksters get smarter and the risks go higher. Still open your eyes and look, for there is still a lot of uprightness in this world and people who strive for high ideals. There are still a lot of heroes and heroines to keep us inspired, and also for us to celebrate, keep and move with.

Who told you that you have to be like someone else in order to be perfect? Do not feign affection but also, do not be unbelieving about love. You’ll be surprised at the places you could find it. But first, love yourself.

Time is a teacher and moments are lessons; pay attention in the class of life – you’ll need the experience as you go on. Strengthen your spirit to stand the sadness of misfortune for they will come, but do not let the intangible shadows of the darkness grab on to you – they have no strength. May fears are born of stress and loneliness so be wholesome, disciplined and gentle with yourself.

You are part of this beautiful collection of wonder and beauty called the universe. You also have a purpose in the unfolding of time and space, whether you or anyone else realizes it or not. Don’t let another person or yourself tell you, “you don’t belong”.

So be at peace with whatever you call your God, your works and efforts, and your soul.

With all this chaos, pain and misfortune happening all around you, stay safe, and strive for happiness.

Keep calm and eat pizza 💕 Love this. I used to compare myself with others and that wasn't going anywhere . The only one we should compare ourselves with is who we were yesterday. That's it. A flamingos doesn't question his beauty compared to a peacock.
