You Cannot Be All Things To All People

Hermann Hesse famously said, “A man cannot live intensely except at the cost of the self.” You cannot live your life on the road. You need to rest. Take time to reconnect with yourself. You need it. The world will continue without you. Your work will continue without you. If you want to enjoy yourself, you must stop running. You must stop being all things to all people.

Life is precious. Don’t abuse your life. You are here to live, not to exist. Until you take care of yourself, you will never have the chance to enjoy your life.

Today Is Your Best Day

Nothing is more important than this moment. Why are you not living it? Why are you wasting it to re-live your past pains? Why are you using this beautiful moment to think about negative things?

You can’t move forward if you keep living in your past. Today is your best day. You must choose to live it. Today is your best day. You must choose to enjoy it. Today is your best day. You must use it to love yourself. Today is your best day. You must use it to connect with your inner world. Today is your best day. Do not use it to think about the past. Today is your best day. You must use it to focus on where you are going. It is your best day.

It is your best day. Choose to live it. Choose love. Choose happiness. Choose yourself. Yes, you can choose yourself. You are unique. You are special. Do not make the mistake of waiting for someone to choose you for you. It won’t happen. If you really want to move forward, you must choose yourself. You must let go of your past mistakes. You must stop re-living your past pains. It is time to choose yourself. It is time to start living your true life. If not this moment, when? If not on your best day, when?
