I rediscovered the pick-me-ups over the past few days.
One: forgive yourself of whatever it is you are beating yourself for, and tell yourself that you are doing the best you can at any point of time.
Two: Just be. Stop the train of thoughts, stop trying to catch everything before they fall and be present. Be in the moment. And give yourself LOVE. Tell yourself that you deserved to receive love because you are deserving. The more you give, the more you receive. And the more you receive love, the more you will have to give out. It is a cycle.
Three: Help others who are in need. You need to give what you have, only then you will realize the cycle. Give yourself, your energy, your time, your love and whatever you have to give, to those who are in need to receive. Help them to open up and realize that THEY, too, deserve to receive for all that they have given out.
Four: Talk with people who think differently from you. Get their points of view. Get another perspective. You may not agree but you gain knowledge, information and most possibly the understanding and solution to whatever it is you are trying to figure out and whatever it is that brings you down in the first place.
Five: Share. Share your knowledge, your views, your feelings and your take. Let go of the need to be right all the time. Learn from sharing, and improve yourself from there. Human BEings are social creatures. We are created to share. So. Share.
