(March 21st to April 19th)
I don’t have to travel halfway around the world to experience adventure; at all times, I am surrounded by wonder.
(April 20th to May 21st)
In no way can I control the feelings, emotions, or actions of others; but I can absolutely control every single thing I do and every single choice I make.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
The minute I stop pretending to be someone I’m not is the minute I will feel free to become the person I was always meant to be.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
My life will always be easier, happier, and lighter when I choose to let go of the anger and the grudges that do nothing but weigh me down.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
I can learn so much more from those around me than I can learn on my own; just because other people think differently than me, or have an idea that is different from mine, does not mean they’re wrong – we could both be right.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
It is not my job to worry about all the things that could go wrong or to obsess over all the ways I am not perfect; my only job is to be the best person I can be every single day, and to strive towards become a better person one day at a time.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
I can’t run away from something when it’s hard or when the spark has fizzled a little – the things that are the most worth it are the things that take the most work.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
Other people’s success is not the same thing as my failure – I will find so much more happiness (and, often, success) when I stop obsessing over what everyone else is doing and what everyone else has, and instead choose to focus solely on myself and my path.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
It’s not my responsibility to be positive, upbeat, and optimistic every second of every day; but it is my responsibility to be honest with myself about my wants and needs, to believe in myself, to prioritize education every day, and to concentrate on the things that bring joy to myself and others.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Thinking negatively won’t protect me from failure and it certainly won’t lead me towards success; being practical and logical is 100% different from being fatalistic and pessimistic.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Keeping my emotions to myself won’t keep me safe; all it will do is prevent me from receiving support, encouragement, and love – and from reaching my full potential.
(February 19th to March 20th)
No one can tell me how to feel about myself or what to do with my life; that power belongs exclusively to me.
