I could probably put these things on my wall… Some of them I really really love, and some of them just make me cry. Now, maybe it has to do with my state of emotionally fatigued mind at the moment but, a lot of these could be part of my Ten Commandments of how to live… And I may have more than 10 or I’m sure there’s probably a core handful that I could live by and everything else could fit into those categories.
But at the moment I’d rather not be so concrete and would rather leave it floating as some may change some may come some may go nothing is set in stone…
But there probably are a few …notice how the numbers are getting smaller and smaller…lol…live gently, spread compassion and kindness, listen and speak from my heart, feed my courage to continue to learn who I am and to be myself in spite of fear…
I don’t like New Year’s resolutions, but I do like examining my behavior and living consciously, but on a daily basis not once a year. I am starting to like to look at myself day-to-day not this once a year nonsense, because to me that is just that, nonsense …
Or as my phone list for possible sounds for nonsense which is quite humorous … And very apropos…here… none since ..nun sense..non sense..$0.09.. I think I like the last one the best because that’s about what it’s worth doing this one time a year…
And so I am not being cynical but practical in that once a year or 1 out of 365 is somewhat insane why not… One out of one… It would seem more likely that I might make a change if I did that even if it took me all year to do so I would be working on it everyday…
Just saying if I look at myself on a daily basis it is more likely I will change the things I do not like about myself (or learn to embrace them and wear them more easily) and become more true to who I am and who I want to be.
This is Neal Harvey…good day!!
People change for two reasons, either their minds have been opened or their hearts have been broken.
Love is not what you say. Love is what you do.
Anyone can say they care. But watch their actions, not their words.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside in order to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
A clear rejection is always better than a fake promise.
Just because I don’t react doesn’t mean I didn’t notice.
I’m a big fan of people being exactly who they are
Staying in a situation where you’re unappreciated isn’t called loyalty, it’s called breaking your own heart.
Today I refuse to stress myself out about things I cannot control or change
A best friend is someone who loves you when you have forgotten how to love yourself
If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door
We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason
I literally love being at home. In my own space. Comfortable. Not surrounded by people.
I am full of mistakes and imperfections and therefore I am real
Deep conversations with the right people are priceless
If you have power to make someone happy, do it! The world needs more of that
Karma. Think good thoughts, say nice things. Be good for others, everything comes back.
Sleep doesn’t help if it’s your soul that’s tired.
A true relationship is when you can tell each other anything and everything. No secrets and no lies.
