They are definitely not MY ideas. I take them from wherever I can find them. Some posts I take from others word for word, some I take the ideas from others and rephrase them, and some Hashem sends them directly from His great wisdom to my little brains.
Enjoy!

One would not call himself a bad person for making a wrong turn, he might call himself a bad driver, but not a bad person. Let us never make the mistake and look at ourselves as bad people for making mistakes, we might have done wrong things, but that does not make us bad as a person.

Just as there will never be an act that will turn a human being (literally) into an animal, or a jew into a non-jew, so to there will never be an act that will determine a person BAD. A person by definition cannot be bad. A person is a soul down on earth, and a soul in essence cannot be bad. All that can be is that one can use his soul for bad doings, but the soul itself will not be bad.
Or in other words, we use our powers of the soul sometimes to do bad stuff. But not that the soul itself is bad.

There is almost nothing one can do to achieve happiness. But if one works and lives with meaning, purpose and does what's right, then he will be happy. In other words, being happy is not a goal, its a result of a way of life.

Why feel depressed over the past if we can feel happy about the future. If thinking about the past will help us grow and become better, then go ahead. But if it only brings us down, then why not (for the time being) focus on the future, and with time we will learn how to handle the past with happiness.

What you did yesterday does not define you for today. What you did yesterday is done already, but how you will be today is still in your hands, so use it wisely!

Hashem does not give us struggles that we cannot overcome. Sometimes we got to use all that we got to keep strong, But we definitely can overcome those struggles.

Hey 2017, Hi!

This maybe true, it could be good if you could upgrade the hard drive with backup (source sheets...)

”Hashem does not give us struggles that we cannot overcome. Sometimes we got to use all that we got to keep strong”

Some struggles we have are overcome-able, yes - with help from outside ourselves!

I’m just sayin’ what works for me :-)
