Mahatma Gandhi said “You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind!” Your mind and your thoughts allow you to feel good anytime, anyplace, no matter what the condition.
In my life I have experienced some hard conditions, and sometimes when people hear about them, they shake their heads in disbelief. But you see, it isn’t what happens to us that define us, but how we interpret what happened to us that define us.
Most of us spend our lives comparing our lives with the lives of others. We become sad, when others achieve some things that we don’t. We judge our lives and that of others based on circumstances and acquisitions.
Folks we all come into this physical life with our own purpose, life plan, and preferences. You have yours, and I have mine. One person’s life is not better than another. If a person is blissfully happy doing and experiencing life in a way you would not choose, do not judge or criticize them. Live and let live…and be happy for them as they are following their bliss. And most importantly, you follow your bliss and stop looking at, being obsessed with, and comparing with, other people.
Remember you are wonderfully and fearfully made, and “you are amazing just the way you are.”
