How to Have True Security

How to Have True Security

Do you worry about the future?

This is SO common!

It all comes down to our need for security.

But the truth is, real security can only come from within.

Even if you take care of your health, save and invest money, take out insurance, anything can happen.

I’m not saying that to spark even more worry in you, and it’s not that we shouldn’t manage our affairs wisely.

But the future is largely out of our control.

If you want to feel secure by knowing that everything will go the way you want in the future, you’re fighting a losing battle and causing yourself unnecessary stress. It’s robbing you of happiness today.

Anyway, the future never arrives – you only ever have today. And that’s enough.

All you need to do is trust that no matter what, you’ll be ok. Because the quality of your life is determined not by what happens, but how you respond.

Things will happen that you didn’t plan or want. And you’re going to be ok.

Love Yourself. The World Needs It.

Love Yourself. The World Needs It.

Most of us didn’t grow up valuing the idea of self-love, because true self-love has been so misunderstood.

Because I didn’t…Continue Reading
