BIG

We as a culture often encourage ourselves to dream big, imagine wide and aim for the stars. This type of intrinsic motivations has held itself responsible for many-a Cinderella stories. In those who embrace it, this tendency narrows their possibilities toward success; determining early that failure is not an option. In some rare occasions, however, the narrow ability of our own prophecy destines us for the failures we feared the most. Anxiety, impulse decisions and uninformed choices that relied on our ability to understand the extent of a situation have, at some point in all of our lives, been a source of resentment and regret. The conditioned behavior of chartering our own paths, although intended for the betterment of our lives, doesn't always end in a happily ever after. It's a good thing to aim and strive. However, our freedom is not in the thinking, its in the ability to choose the right actions. If we build gods of our wants and expectations, and we always choose with our self fulfillment as the top priority , we will always be haunted by our inability to overcome our greatest obstacle in the pursuit of happiness... ourselves.

Today ladies think big... BIGGER THAN YOURSELF.

Be beauty for ashes.

  1. Good morning,

    "...we will always be haunted by our inability to overcome our greatest obstacle in the pursuit of happiness... ourselves" Choosing to do what's right is like a Snickers candy bar...it satisfies!

    It is good to think bigger than one's self.
