Sometimes the most difficult part of any journey is believing that you're worthy of the destination. The one where you see that goal, that dream or what it is that you have always longed for. You are brave enough to face the challenges and strong enough to see it through the end. Never be afraid to take that first step. With each new step, bringing you closer to it. Believe it! You can do it.
If you ever find yourself wanting something or someone very much but in your heart you know, is all wrong for you. You know deep inside, it would compromise your integrity or your self. It would be a choice that would hurt you in the long run. Be courageous and say no. Be brave and walk away. Be good to yourself and know that you deserve goodness in your life and making good decisions will help you achieve this.
Like a crime scene, do not give others, the Opportunity, the Motive nor the Means to commit a hurtful act upon you. Your best Alibi is to surround yourself with the people that care for you and to be kind to others. Have good intentions in your heart and in the long run, the evidence will prove, beyond the reasonable doubt, you acted in good faith.
One of reasons people hold onto the past is because they don't like their life in the now. You can keep the memories close to your heart but you must let go of longings in order to plan a better life ahead of you. Living in the past is wasting the precious time making each new day jealous of your memories.
