Allowing Yourself To Be Human

Often times we are our worst enemy. We are so hard on ourselves when there is no reason to be. When we are discouraged in our attempt to achieve, it may be because we set ourselves up for failure. It's not that we can't succeed, but we are so critical of our actions that we second guess our every move. At this point, we may not have the confidence to do anything for it will only bring disappointment. Although we know within our hearts that our thoughts are not what is real, it seems as if we are living the lies we tell ourselves. We often times forget that we are human and it is in our nature to falter and stumble through life. For it's while making mistakes that we find our true selves. In allowing ourselves to be human, we discover the compassionate spirit that is within us all. Today, make the mistakes that allow you to be more human. While walking on your path, take the time to enjoy your journey instead of worrying about where life is taking you. Find peace in your heart and live life to the fullest.

  Life's path is not always smooth and straight but it's all an adventure...
(For me, life is to be enjoyed. Although it is sometimes filled with chaos and tragedies, it is balanced out with joy and wonder. Life always seems to balance itself out naturally. There is nothing that I need to do for things work themselves out by themselves. Without the love and laughter of family and friends, my life would be very lonely. I think being human is part of the universal plan of better understanding how truly frail life is.)
