One morning she woke up different.
❝ Done with trying to figure out who was with her or against her. She was done with anything that didn't bring her peace. She realised that opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for parking, and loyalty wasn't a word but a lifestyle. It was this day that her life changed. And not because of a man or a job but because she realised that life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket. ❞
So, what did she do?
She put on some sexy high heels, armored herself with stockings and lipstick, and gathered enough faith and courage to step out of the damned gate.
Of course, now that she had this epiphany around the concepts of love and faith and courage, she became impatient to get to create change.
NOW. she wanted to jump ahead and transform her life overnight.
She wanted to leave every single thing she had tolerated for so many years behind.
Let's face this - We all want to be happy.
If you wouldn't want to be happy and stress free you wouldn't be reading this.
So, what are you presently tolerating in your life? Are you a few pounds overweight? Maybe you're at a job you dislike? Or you are so disorganized you can't find anything, and don't have time to sit and relax?
Needless tolerations can drain your energy and make it impossible for you to function effectively. You can’t live a happy, successful, fulfilling, stress-free life if you’re spending all your energy tolerating things that shouldn’t be tolerated.
You don’t have anything to lose by putting yourself out there and trying. Your ego? Useless. Your feelings when rejected? Overstated. Your obstacles and enemies? Invisible.
So when tolerating something becomes your habit, you are not only are you putting up with things that doesn’t work for you, you’re also confusing yourself about the actual reality.
