Haters Gonna Hate

As the expression goes, haters gonna hate.  Funny thing is I realize my worst critic; where the absolute harshest criticism comes from, is from me.  I find that when it comes to a harsh critique, no one tops what I have to say.  Feeling the need to judge myself, I analyze and scrutinize for no good reason, it just comes naturally.  I have to think others are judging themselves as well, so they don’t really have time to judge me, and why do I bother worrying so much.  Overcoming that mindset takes determination and some strong will for sure, I have been doing it for so many years.  It is a negative process that doesn’t do any good in the long run.  Judging ourselves turns in to a harmful process when we allow the negative and bad overwhelm and take center stage.  Finding a new thought process and a new way to approach that impulse is key to finding a way out of that harmful self-critical mode.  So, this hater isn’t gonna hate anymore, or at least try not to :0)


The Simple Life

A friend had shared a post with me a while back about getting back to basics essentially, and finding your happiness.  I’ve wavered and debated about it for a while, and am deciding to reflect upon it here and now.  I intend to get back to what I want to fulfill me in this life.  I enjoy my time with family, friends, reading, blogging, and just digging in and enjoying simple days.  Worrying about things I cannot change will always press down on me, I will always want to make sure I am doing it right, but I also have to enjoy what is simply right there for me now.  Sometimes you have to embrace that simple pleasure and just go with it, follow it to its conclusion.  Happiness and contentment are always there, if you just know where to look, and oddly enough sometimes you don’t have to look far.  Get back to the simple life.
