Daydreaming is healthy to some extent. It allows you to be creative and visualize where you want to be. It only becomes dangerous when you don’t do anything about it.
Don’t live that happier life in your head. Good things come to those who go after them.
Sure, it’s not going to happen overnight. You may experience plenty of false starts and—let’s face it—there’s a chance you might fail. But keep going, try again or move on to the next thing. After all, isn’t life about experiencing and learning from the good and the bad? Meeting new people, exploring ideas, and discovering new places?
Your life won’t change if you are passing the time in your dream world. Time is precious, so be in the present and get going.
Want happiness? Know and believe in yourself.
Now that you’re aware of these thought traps, you can safely evade them. All that’s left is for you to truly believe and apply yourself. Your mind is going to be with you through thick and thin. So, if you want your mind to always work with you instead of against you, then you must find the reasons to believe in yourself.
Be aware, honest, and true to yourself. You are your own ultimate guide for your journey towards happiness. Now, go for it!

You have taught me what true love really means. You accept me 100% and love me more than I can love myself because I am still trying to find who I really am. They say that you should love yourself first but to be honest you beat me. You love me when I’m feeling cranky, upset, and I admit I’ve been disrespectful at times yet you still love me. I was scared to be with you but I was sure enough to keep going, try this out, and hope for the best. Here I am 6 months later falling harder and harder in love with you. You opened my mind to new possibilities for myself and seeing the world in a different perspective. I’m going to keep holding on in this relationship because letting you go is something I can never do. Typing those words was hard enough and unbelievable.
I’ve come to realize that no matter what situations we go through, it will either make it or break it for us. I want so badly to make it and bring us stronger and closer because I don’t want to start over with another person. Why should I? Having you in my life is all I need and I would rather go through pain and heartache with you in order to build our relationship. There’s so much more for me to learn about you and I know in the future you and I will change. But loving you will never change and I hope that we keep moving forward and past the hardships.
"Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process."
