Growing Up

Staying Balanced

You have choice over the direction of your life. You are the captain of your ship. The only limits you have are the ones you set for your self. You are the creator of your destiny. By believing in yourself, you can go beyond your old boundaries and change your world, maybe changethe world. Then you will realize that you have the power to make your life be as wonderful as you want it to be.

I often hear that growing up is no fun - you can't play and have fun anymore, like you did when you were a kid. The opposite is true. When you are self-confidant and spontaneous, you can have more fun than you ever realized you were capable of having. The feelings of accomplishment when a task is completed, giving back and helping someone in need, even a smile can brighten someone's day.

Don't waste your life. Clean up old business, learn from your mistakes, monitor your progress, treat yourself with love and gentleness, and stay conscious. Examine your strengths, look at your talents make a list of your interests, set some goals then watch how your creativity can change your world. When you feel your self slipping back into old dysfunctional or negative patterns, Stop, re-evaluate and get back on track. Walk down a new path.

Stay positive.
and open-minded.
Be flexible,
continue to grow,
and grow up.
