    This quote links in nice with what I was about to say; don't be afraid to love, to be open and trust. There are times this will cause hurt, but nothing ever is one way or another. There's a release that comes from letting go and allowing (inviting) people into your life.

    Life doesn't begin at some point in the future (where you're starting your career etc). Life is already happening!

    Actually, I think that's one thing being a closet ex-muslim does to you, especially if you're a girl and with very little freedom, you develop a mentality that life will 'begin' sometime in the future. :/ because it's easier to focus on something like that to carry on rather than face the current situation.

    Sometimes I find what's more motivating to me is to look at the opposite of what I want.

    "Control Over Your Life"


    How much control do you believe you have over what happens to you in life? Today, let's talk about how our feelings, about who's in control, affect end-results.

    Some people believe they have very little control over what happens to them. When good things occur, they believe it's mostly a matter of luck or circumstance. They don't set goals or plan very far ahead because they think that how things turn out is beyond their control.

    Their tension and stress levels are generally very high, as you might expect, and they often feel overwhelmed, helpless and hopeless. Strangely enough, when bad things happen, instead of blaming circumstances or luck, they tend to blame themselves.

    Now, the bad news is that how much control we believe we have over our lives is generally a direct result of the way we were treated when we were very young. The good news is that this condition, which has been called "learned helplessness" doesn't have to be permanent. You can learn to take charge of your life and to look at things differently, and the fact is that when your attitude changes, the results you get change, too. Yes, that is a fact, not just my opinion. The research is there to back it up: Your attitude is learned and the results you get depend as much - or more - on your attitude, as anything else.

    If you're interested in putting an end to feeling like a victim, pick up Martin Seligman's book "Learned Optimism" as a start or get involved in a reputable personal growth program. What are you waiting for? Why not do it today!

    Here is a team speech from Captain Phil Bennett prior to the Wales v England game in 1977 (Rugby) ..

    "Look what these bastards have done to Wales. They've taken our coal, our water, our steel. They buy our homes and live in them for a fortnight every year. What have they given us? Absolutely nothing. We've been exploited, raped, controlled and punished by the English — and that's who you are playing this afternoon."

    I seriously spent all of 2012 learning how to take anger and channel it into "controlled aggression".  It was hard, but MAN, did I get a whole lot of sh** done. 

    Anyway, here is one of my favorite quotes:

    "Anger is a gift"~ Zack De La Rocha

    and another, which I have experienced in real life...so amazing:

    “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!” Goethe

    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Cool thread.

     `Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad.  You're mad.'
     `How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
     `You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'

    In full:

    Out of the night that covers me
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole
    I thank whatever gods may be   
    For my unconquerable soul
     
    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud
    Under the bludgeonings of chance   
    My head is bloody, but unbowed
     
    Beyond this place of wrath and tears   
    Looms but the Horror of the shade
    And yet the menace of the years   
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid
     
    It matters not how strait the gate
    How charged with punishments the scroll
    I am the master of my fate
    I am the captain of my soul


    ~ William Ernest Henley, Invictus
