Be True To Yourself

be true to yourself. never let others define you. Mercia Tapping

I think it is all too easy especially when we are younger, to let the opinions of others become too important and we let others define us, often not too kindly.

You become your own person when it is you who decides what kind of person you are, and the direction of your life. It took me many years to get to this place in my life, but I can assure you that it is a far more peaceful place than twisting oneself inside and out in order to please another. And by the way, those pretzel contortions never seem to be successful in the long run.

Humility is When You Realize

Filed in Hope, Inspirational, Life by on February 27, 2016

humility is when you realize that someone else has a legitimate point of view. Mercia Tapping

I am rather distressed at the rancor in the political system and the rhetoric on the international scene. I have always found that the way to build bridges and foster relationships is to begin by trying to understand the view of the other side and to grant it legitimacy, despite how different it might be to your own.

So I remind myself of that when I puzzle about the latest thing which may have gone wrong in my life, that all is how it is meant to be. I am just not privy to the reason yet.

Adversity Can

adversity can drag you down or life you to new heights. Mercia Tapping

I am constantly amazed and in admiration of people who have faced tragic events in their lives squarely, and somehow have managed to rise above it all and make new lives for themselves; often making great contributions to humanity. I am humbled when I see people do this, but it lights a path for me to emulate.

So I remind myself of that when I puzzle about the latest thing which may have gone wrong in my life, that all is how it is meant to be. I am just not privy to the reason yet.

I think it is a good practice to smile at yourself in the mirror. See the beauty inside yourself. Somehow it makes you smile as you go about your day.

everyday courage is putting one foot in front of the other when you have no more steps in you to take. Mercia Tapping

The world is full of every day heroes who keep on going regardless of being battered and exhausted. It is that courage to keep on going with life despite adversity, that I admire immensely. We all have it, we just do not know until we are tested.

The Sounds Of The Sea

the sounds of the sea whisper to me, all is how it is meant to be. Mercia Tapping

I am sure you have noticed that sometimes life does not seem to go as planned. Certainly I can relate to ” the best laid of plans go astray”. But then as I look back on a number of plans that ” went astray”, I can see that something even better emerged some period of time afterwards.

When Life Throws You A Curveball

Filed in Courage, Happiness, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on February 21, 2016

when life throws you a curveball, catch it and throw it away. Mercia Tapping

Just about every day life throws me some annoying little curveball. I am sometimes amazed at how many little things can go wrong, and I add them to my list of things to take care of. But I always ask myself, is this really worth getting upset about? The answer is almost always that while the event is irritating, but hardly worth getting bent out of shape about. My life is more peaceful that way.
