We are human beings. We can’t do everything, but we can do something to change our lives. If want change, do what you can do to change yourself.

It is not going to be easy. Change is not always easy. It is scary. But if you know why you are doing it, you will enjoy the process. When it comes to change, my friends, don’t focus on what you are going through, focus on what you are becoming. Do not miss the opportunity to change your life. Everything has a price to pay to get it. For example, if you want milk from your local store, do you just go there and pick it up? No. You can’t leave without paying for it. Nothing is free. You must pay the price to get what you want.

And you can’t get what you want without doing the right thing. You must do the right thing to get the right thing. If you do the right thing, you will get the right thing. If you do the wrong thing, you will get the wrong thing. According to Virgil, “We cannot all do everything.” That is true. But we can do something to change our lives. We don’t need to do everything to change our lives. We just need to do something that we haven’t done before. Because as the saying goes, “If you want to change your life, you must do things differently.” Because you will never get a different result if you don’t change what you are doing. Don’t be scared. If what you are doing is not working for you, don’t waste your time, change it. If you don’t change it, it will change you forever.

Don’t worry yourself about changing everything. You can’t. But you can change something. You can’t focus on everything, but you can focus on something. Something is what you need to focus on, not everything. You can’t do everything. You can do something. Instead of trying to do everything, why not focus on doing one thing very well?

I Don’t Want Your Gifts. I Just Want You To Make Me Feel Safe And Secure

Princess Diana said, “I don’t want expensive gifts; I don’t want to be bought. I have everything I want. I just want someone to be there for me, to make me feel safe and secure.” Don’t think you know what people need. No, you don’t. If you want to know what they want, ask them. If you ask, they will tell you. Money is good, but not everything in life. Money can make you feel good about yourself. But money can’t buy you real happiness. Real happiness comes from within you. It does not depend on how much you have in your bank account. Happiness doesn’t care about your bank account. It cares about your heart.

If you think you can buy happiness, you have a lot of work to do. Why is that? Because happiness is not for sale. Happiness is free. It doesn’t depend on your wealth. Stop chasing happiness. You don’t look for happiness. Do the right thing, happiness will come to you. So if you want to be happier, you must focus on what makes you happy. If you can’t make yourself happy, you can’t make other people happy. Why? Because you can’t give what you don’t have. In order to make other people happy, you must first plant the seeds of happiness.

“I just want someone to be there for me, to make me feel safe and secure.”- Princess Diana

If you want love, plant the seeds of love. If you want happiness, plant the seeds of happiness. If you want peace, you must plant the seeds of peace. Remember that everything begins with you. You are responsible for making others happy. Above all, you are responsible for making yourself happy. Don’t buy gifts. It won’t work. Instead of buying expensive gifts, why not give part of yourself to someone who is suffering. Gifts can’t do it. Gifts are good, but can’t make people happy. As Princess Diana said, “I just want someone to be there for me, to make me feel safe and secure.” Right. People want to be safe and secure. They want you to be there for them. They want you to appreciate them, love them, kiss them, and huge them. If you want to make people happy, show them some love. Real love. Just do it!
