Listen! People that are doing less always have time on their hands to criticize what you’re doing. Let them talk and you keep shining. 😉 . . .

Never react emotionally to criticism. Analyze yourself to determine whether it is justified. If it is, correct yourself. Otherwise, go on about your business. - Norman Vincent Peale

December 2018 put me flat on my back and I was wondering if there was any reason to hope again. But no matter how many bad days or jobs or failures I have to go through, I'm confident there's something out there for me worth all this confusion and pain. 💙 🌞

Fave themes?

Does anyone out there have any favorite tumblr themes or theme makers? I’m looking to update my theme soon, but the one I’m currently using is having support issues (the theme maker seems to no longer exist). If you happen to have any, or a list of where you save your faves, please lemme know! I really love themes that have a nice photo header, large post size options, and space for you to add content to the side bar/s. Thanks in advance!!


Find a passion and pursue it. Fall in love. Dream big. Drink wine. Eat great food and spend quality time with your friends. Laugh every day. Believe in magic. Tell stories. Reminisce about the good old days but look with optimism to the future. Travel often. Learn more. Be creative. Spend time with people you admire. Seize opportunities when they reveal themselves. Love with all your heart. Never give up. Do what you love. Be true to who you are. Make time to enjoy the simple things in life. Spend time with family. Forgive even when it’s hard. Smile often. Be grateful. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Follow your dreams. Try new things. Work hard. Be thankful. Be nice to everyone. Be happy. Live for today.

And above all…

Make every moment count.

When we want to concentrate or meditate on a special thought or problem, how should we do it?

First let us consider a problem. You have to know the seriousness of the problem. If it is a serious problem, naturally you will have to meditate on it for a long time. If it is not serious, you can solve the problem in a few minutes. If you concentrate on any problem, big or small, think of it as something made of glass. If you drop glass, it will break. It is brittle and fragile, and at any moment it will give way. If you think of a problem in this way, you will find that this is the easiest way to solve it. But if you take it as something very heavy or solid, you will not be able to solve it.

Now let us take a thought. You will say that naturally you concentrate only on good thoughts. But unfortunately, we do unconsciously meditate on bad thoughts. Jealousy, doubt, suspicion — all these we cherish unconsciously. When this kind of bad thought comes, you have to feel that the bad thought represents a person. Just think of jealousy, fear, doubt and hypocrisy as people, and immediately give them a human form: “This fellow has undivine qualities.” When it is a good thought, also give it form: “This man has all good qualities — humility, sincerity and so on.”

Then what do you do? When you see a good man, feel that he is leading you and try to follow him as long as he wants you to. But if you see a bad man — a man full of fear, anxiety and so forth — feel that he is going to chase you mercilessly and that you have to immediately run away from him. You must never allow him to come near you. When you see someone destructive in front of you, immediately react as though he will destroy you. Feel that your very life is in danger. Very often in the spiritual life, people do not take bad thoughts seriously enough. We cherish these undivine qualities and feel that they are only insects pinching us. But when you have these undivine qualities, you have to feel that they are worse than dragons, something very dangerous.

It is difficult for me to concentrate on my heart for longer than just a few minutes. Is there any advice you can give me?

When you concentrate on the heart, the first thing you should try to remember is love. Love means the victory over time. You have all love, all affection, all concern for your husband and son. When they fall sick or need you, you will spend hours and hours with them. You are at their disposal twenty-four hours a day; you are ready to give them everything because of your love. Now, your dear ones are with you for fifty years or sixty years and then they leave you. But you have to know that inside your heart is someone who is infinitely dearer than your husband and children, and that is God. In this world you have some dear ones for a few years, and then you give them everything you can. It seems there is no end to the love you offer them. But the dearest One you will have for all Eternity, and if you want to offer Him your love, naturally it will be all infinite and eternal.

If you concentrate on your heart and soulfully repeat a few times, “Love, love, love,” then you will see that love is extending its own horizon. It is identifying itself with time and, again, it is going beyond time, because it needs fulfilment. When love wants fulfilment, it will not stay with time for five or ten minutes. It will extend throughout Eternity. If you know this and meditate on your heart, then the expansion of time comes, the expansion of delight comes, the fulfilment of the soul comes. If you try to feel love, you will extend the capacity of your aspiration, extend the capacity of your realisation and extend the capacity of your oneness with the entire world.

First think

First think of God
And then dine with man.
Do not proceed
In the reverse order.

First think of Compassion
And then meditate on Justice.
Do not proceed
In the reverse order.

First think of your own perfection
And then cherish the idea of God-manifestation.
Do not proceed
In the reverse order.
