February kind of screws my whole “30 in 30” random countdowns of crap, so I am sharing a fantastic post from marcandangel.com. Instead of a dipshit Valentine’s Day Card, I would much rather share this list that boasts maintaining a healthy view of self-worth – something that VD Day generally tries to remind you that you do not have unless you give or receive some grand gesture of capitalistic generosity.
This would equally be a good list to give to young adults, who are ready to flee the nest, about life lessons you wish someone had shared with you sooner. I admit that I have to learn everything the hard way and while these lessons come with a price, the reward has been that much sweeter.
When you stop chasing the wrong things you give
the right things a chance to catch you.
As Maria Robinson once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Nothing could be closer to the truth. But before you can begin this process of transformation you have to stop doing the things that have been holding you back.
