    Keeping yourself motivated through out your

    journey is going to be one of your biggest challenges.. You may find yourself haunted by self doubt.. But always remember nothing is impossible for a determined heart!! There's always a light at the end of the tunnel!!

    Improving Myself

    Becoming a good person is important to me. i know this is going to sound a little bit corny but this year i sort of have a theme which is 'be the person i want to be.' Everytime i find myself to chicken or forget to do something, that line always runs through my head. Though...

    Unfortunately I always try to live up to

    peoples expectations. I don't try to do it, it just happens. So when I don't do things perfectly or what I think people will be happy with I have severe panic attacks/breakdowns. Why does the world have so many standards in which some of us feel like we have to fit into? I...

    My life goal is to become a better person every

    day. The only person I'm trying to outdo is the me from yesterday. Whenever I act selfish or complain about something insignificant, I remind myself of the MJ lyrics, "If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change."

    I'm working on being present.

    On living in the moment, but not in the way that justifies doing harmful, destructive things. Just living in the moment, in the purest sense. I'm working on listening. Like, really listening, without feeling the need to stuff in my opinion. Because at any given moment, I find it...

    I Am Always Trying To Improve Myself

    I'm a pretty soft-spoken person.

    I'm the type who is always listening and rarely speaking during a conversation. Maybe this stems from being raised by a talkative and outspoken mother who could literally talk for hours while I just sat there and mostly listened. It's almost like I never developed that part of...

    The Mind Is An Ultimate Reality

    Mind is an ultimate reality which is aware of itself and is not the seat of our empirical consciousness --------- by ''being'' mind instead of ''having'' mind

    A Never Ending Journey Of Myself

    I think one of the biggest faults the modern man has is not wanting to improve himself. He wants a faster car, and a bigger house and a job that pays him more money, yet very few are looking to improve themselves from the inside.When I think about what I want out of life, the...
