Be careful and choose wisely what you allow to occupy the stage of your dominate thoughts, for truly the quality of your thinking determines the happiness of your life. “Man is made or unmade by himself. In the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace.” –James Allen (from his inspiring book ‘As A Man Thinketh’)
This makes me think of my mom. When i have done something and i tried my hardest, she says i cant try my hardest because i have to be perfect. This drives me crazy. I dont like being perfect. I get straight A's and one B? She says im awful. I just feel so pressured to be perfect that i just break because i know im a dissapointment.
Learn from the lessons you walk through in life. Don't crumble and wilt in a corner. Grow from the wisdom of your lessons and become vast and brilliant. Never accept any one's definition of who you are!
