Love, Not Fear

"Those who love to be feared fear to be loved, and they themselves are more afraid than anyone, for whereas other men fear only them, they fear everyone."- Francis de Sales, Bishop of Geneva

Where there is fear, there can be no love. Why is that? Because love and fear cannot live together.
You cannot love and fear at the same time. 

If you love something, you can't hate it at the same time. If you do, then it is not real love. 
If you love something, you cannot fear it at the same time. If you do, then you are not being honest with yourself.

Love is bigger than fear. Love is better than fear. Love is sweeter than fear. When you are in love, you know no fear. When you are in love, you know no hate. When you love yourself, you accept yourself as you are. When you love others, you accept them as they are. 

Love is about acceptance, not about rejection. Love brings people together. Love doesn't separate people. Love is a healer, not a killer.
With love, with the power of love, you can bring out the best in other people. And with the power of love, you can bring out the best in yourself. Because love asks that you take care of yourself.

Stop Recounting Your Problems

"Do not dump your woes upon people- 
keep the sad story of your life to yourself. 
Troubles grow by recounting them."- Elbert Hubbard

If you want to succeed in your life, 
recounting your problems won't help you.
Focusing on what is missing won't help you.
Blaming others for your problems won't help you.

If you want to move forward, focus on what you can do.
Focus on what is working for you, not your failures.
When you do that, you will have the power to face 
what is ahead of you. 
You will have the power to face your problems, 
no matter what. And you can do it.
