The reason why I am so focused on helping others, I am usually trying to help myself. With a streak of bad luck over the years...it has been hard to push through a bad day or even an average day. So, when I realized that I couldn't help myself on a consistent basis I decided to start helping others. It took the focus off of me, provided good things for others and at the end of the day, I started to feel better about myself. I made it POSSIBLE to stay motivated to move forward.
We have all been guilty of it...allowing negative thoughts to pop in your head, letting your circumstances take over or giving someone the power to make you feel less than. Don't allow any of these factors to take over your entire day, or your life. You can control your thoughts, dreams and your situation. You may not know where to start but putting one foot in front of the other, helping others and knowing that anything is possible is a great start. It's all in what you are telling yourself. Be strong, fight the negative off, stay positive and keep moving forward!
