Avina Celeste Quotes
There is no benefit in being the same, the same as everyone around you or the same as your past self. For life to grow, we must grow beyond our previous limits, beyond the limits that others have set for us. We are meant to be constantly changing, to be an original being in this world, existing only as ourselves.
Some moments cannot be changed; they must be experienced, lived through, and accepted. We can live always looking to the future, to the better times or we can live now, accept the moment and, maybe, even find the enjoyment. Our moments are to be lived at this time and if we’re always looking beyond our time, we never truly experience our life. Though your times may be hard, I encourage you to find the joy in the moment, to live now.
Your emotions mirror the emotions of those around you. Surround yourself with hateful people and you will find yourself hateful. Surround yourself with nervous people and you too will be nervous. If you surround yourself with loving people you will be a loving person too. Our environment affects us all far more than we admit but, fortunately, we can change our environment to one that pleases us. Be brave enough to live with love, surrounded by love.
You need to remember why you started. What gave you the boost of passion that drove you to begin? What told your mind that you could indeed do anything that you set your mind to? Find the source of your passion. When you want to end, remember your beginnings. There was a reason you started and that will be the reason why you finish. Find your passion. Remember the beginning. You started and now you must finish. You can do it. You believed it once and you will believe it again.
Everyone should be comfortable in their own skin. Of course, no one has any right to feel above the world around them but everyone needs to realize that every person, including you, brings value to the world. There is greatness to be found in each and every one of us. Thrive on the idea that your uniqueness can and will change the world.
Do not discredit any emotion simply because it is unfavorable. There is a reason for sadness, anger, and fear. Do not act to remove an entire emotion from your life just because it hurts you sometimes. Sadness allows you to recover, to brainstorm for the future, to let you see the true beauty of happiness. Anger keeps us from getting hurt, fuels our passion, and instigates self-change. Fear protects us, motivates action, and guides us in havocked times. Our vocabulary of emotions is there for a reason. We need balance. We need happy times and sad times. The good and the bad. Instead of fighting within yourself, release, calm, and examine your emotions. If you are feeling an undesirable emotion, investigate the cause and find a solution. Use your negative emotions to encourage a time for change. Work with yourself, not against.
There is always a battle within you; a battle between your demons and your angels. You are always at war with yourself, to find the light while darkness encroaches on you. Unfortunately, this is a battle we all must face, to choose whether we will be good or bad. The most important step is choosing a side. You must choose to live in the light if you wish to remain there. You must tell yourself, every day that your life, your self will be good. You must tell yourself that you will find the light, the love, the beauty, and the joy. Believe you will find the light and so you will.
You don’t live life looking at your feet, you live with your head held high looking for future opportunities. When you spend your life looking at the ground, looking at your misfortune, you miss out on all the beauty around you. Unless bad times are staring you straight in the face choose to enjoy the good in your life. Choose to see the good in your life not the bad.
What you want, what you desire is not found outside yourself. While it may appear that happiness, peace, and success must be pursued, travelled to, or found, the truth is that everything is within you already. To gain what you want, you must peer inside your soul to the deepest of your abilities. There are two ways of looking at this: people find their happiness through the pursuit of life or people pursue life because they are happy. I believe that to truly be happy on a real, not superficial, level you must find your honesty. You must begin to communicate openly and truthfully with yourself. There is a curtain of lies, fear, anger, and sadness that must be pulled away from the window of your soul to reveal a way of living that is true to you. There is no need to do what you think you must to be happy. Everyone is different and it is your job to live in your own way, not in other people’s ways. Sure, you can travel, sing, dance, and party but you don’t have to. I stress that you don’t have to do anything unless you want to. ‘Should’ is the word that destroys lives. I should do this. I should do that. No! Act in the ways you WANT to act. I want to do something and so I will, not I should to that and so I might.
