You could choose to build a bridge, or to tear one down; to lend a hand, or to allow others to suffer; to be a blessing, or to be a curse; to heal, or to hurt; to love, or to hate. The choice is yours to make.
Be a healer. In your words; in your thoughts; in your actions; in your mind; in your heart; be a healer.
Optimists don’t just think optimistically, they act optimistic, as well. Despite what life throws at them, they keep their heads up, never solely relying on good fortune to bring them happiness.
Rest is one thing, to be sure, but feeling down on yourself, or on your situation, is something else. Don’t waste an enormous amount of time feeling sorry about present circumstances. You’re working towards something better, after all.
Master your inner dialogue. Lift your head up. Then, keep it up, and keep moving forward.
