You shouldn’t look for answers in people who have left you.
There are no revelations there. No guides. No fulfillment’s of any kind.
You’re not going to find a map to paradise in these people.
You’re going to find confusion and a lot more questions, perhaps even more than you can handle.
And I know people change, that is if they want to but why give in?
Why trust who has broken you before?
I mean, people live and sometimes they have the nerve to come back but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to let them back in.
You don’t have to.
You owe it to yourself to be happy.
Besides look at you now, you’re a goddam superstar and in their absence you have found more of yourself and your smile.
You’re stronger and to be honest, you don’t need to spiral around the bulls*** their universe brings.
You don’t need people who have hurt you to convince you of how beautiful you are.
You’re a flower, and you don’t drown the moment the rain starts falling down.

Are You Satisfied With Your Life?

Are you satisfied with your life?  This question was recently posed to me by my mentor.  At first I felt satisfied was a weak word.  It felt as if my mentor was aiming low.  Then he stated that in a recent study he read, people are satisfied with their lives.  So once again he asked me if I was satisfied with my life.

My answer was no.  I was in shock.  I had not realized that I was not satisfied with my life.  I want more.  If the world stopped today, I would want more.  My goals were unfulfilled or I was unfulfilled inside myself.

So now, for the first time in a long time, my goal is no longer to be just happy, but satisfied as well.

Are you satisfied with your life?
