Anyone can be a hero and other thoughts for a postive 2012

1. Anyone can be a hero.

So what exactly makes a hero? Simply put, a hero is someone who chooses not to watch and wait in the face of a crisis. You don’t need to save someone from impending death to be a hero. You just need to speak up when your instincts tell you someone is being mistreated. The world is a better place when we all look out for each other.

2. We can choose to decrease our pain by letting go.

We can’t change that life involves pain, but we get to choose what we do from moment to moment—and we can always choose to do something that helps us live peacefully in the now.

3. It’s okay to walk away from something that hurts you.

“Love and relationships require work and responsibility. We have to learn when to stretch and when to break.”

4. Learning to complain less can make us happier.

5. We can deal with anger most effectively when we resist the urge to 
immediately act on it.

6. Criticism can actually have benefits

7. Peace is often a matter of asking ourselves the right questions.

 What if there was nothing I needed to fix in me? What if there was nothing I needed to change?  What if I was perfect just the way I am now?

8. We have more to appreciate than we may often realize.

look around and realize we’re fortunate, even on the days when we struggle.

9. We always have the choice to reinvent ourselves. 

 The future does not have to create you—you create the future. 

10. Stay Away from what might have been and instead on what will be.
