Friday Frills

There comes a time when you must stand alone. 
When you must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams.

You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved. 

Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged. 
There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities. 

Be strong enough to overcome your own weaknesses.
Be brave enough to be able to show your emotions, joyful or sad. 
Be confident enough that you won't settle for a compromise just to get by. 

Appreciate yourself by allowing yourself the opportunities to grow, 
and find your true sense of purpose in this life. 

Be willing to make sacrifices. 
Believe in yourself and all that you are.
Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.

Don't stand in someone else's shadow when it's your sunlight that should lead the way.

Well... said...

This really just made my day. Its so easy to just be satisfied with something we know and are familiar with. But its only with pushing and stretching ourselves can we expect to gain something different from what we've always had!

This Friday Frills was exactly what I needed... especially these words: "must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams. You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged." And the last ones, not to be someone's shadow, when we are meant to be the sun... it's so amazing! Thanks for this amazing post... very very very inspiring!!!!
