“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.” ~Dalai Lama
Ok, so we all know that positive people create positive lives, and negative people dig themselves a hole of misery and blame the world! You can try to help, listen to their problems, take on their worries, offer soloutions, ideas and advice. However, you can take the horse to water BUT you can’t make it drink! So what do you do? You’ve tried, you’ve put your energy in, you’ve given your time, you’ve helped as much as you can – but they don’t drink!
My resolution is go grab a bottle of Champagne and put your energy into enjoying your own life. If you can’t help people in taking the yellow brick road, then put your energy into your own journey. Hopefully you can inspire them on your way – Just make sure you always have that hand waving as a sign to say ‘ hey I’m here if you need me’.
Its tough when you can see people burning their own bridges due to their attitude, but they can’t grow unless they really want to. Sometimes people just don’t want to take responsibility for their own life and can’t step away from blaming their problems on the cards they were dealt.
Life dishes out some crazy shit sometimes and so many people’s roads can be rocky. HOWEVER many people have conquered rocky roads. There is no excuse – only the desire to be happy.
