We will never be able to perfectly share with others how we perceive or experience life. We may forever remain little islands adrift through consciousness, fading in and out on the horizon. Know this: if you do feel alone or forsaken, out there somewhere, at some time in the past there is a person in this abyss who has shared those feelings. I hope others stand up for you if that time comes when you need them too and if they don't then I hope you'll believe me when I say that you can make it through this storm. "Be like the cliff against which the waves continually break, yet it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it. "Don't let your perceptions of the world around you injure your mind. That was all I was able to do in this moment. I was here in the past thinking about you in the future.

"My presence is my power."
Feeling empowered is usually synonymous with feeling prepared to tackle anything that comes your way. Be more mindful of staying connected to your surroundings and living in the moment, rather than getting easily distracted by texts or other conversations. You'll probably get more done and people around you will notice and appreciate your presence, too.

"Energy flows where my attention and intention goes."
What you choose to focus on (say, how much you enjoy working with your colleagues or how happy you are to get a workout in before work) is where you expend your energy. Choose to think about what you're grateful for, rather than concentrating on the situations that could be going better. Also, set a goal for each day when you get up in the morning, so you keep working toward it.

"I am ready to learn through love."
This one's a perfect mantra to add to your phone alarm or bathroom mirror! Whenever you're feeling frustrated or angry, come back to this saying and try meditating on it. It's important to always lean toward joy, not pain or hardship.

"I am responsible for what I see."
We all pay more attention to certain situations more than others, but we can choose to switch the way we perceive hard times to a more positive light. A fight with your partner? Choose to see it as an opportunity to grow, rather than a reason to break up.

"My projection is my perception."
Often times how you picture a situation panning out becomes the more likely outcome, especially if you base that end result on prior negative experiences. For instance, if you keep believing we can't get it done or that the revolution won't happen, you're likely to subconsciously push those things away. Shift your thoughts from what you're afraid will happen toward what you really want to come true.

"I step back and let the Universe lead the way."
When you're feeling chaotic, overwhelmed or distracted, close your eyes, take a deep breath and repeat these words. The best part about this: When you learn to just let life happen, you tend to have more fun living it.

"I welcome creative possibilities."
This comes in handy when your original plan for the day, month or even the year gets re-routed. If something doesn't work out, know that you may see potentially better opportunities pop up. Another good reminder: "Obstacles are detours in the right direction."

"Do I look through the eyes of love or judgement?"
First and foremost, try to get better at recognizing negative thoughts, especially about other people. If a member, friend or co-worker makes you upset, put yourself in his or her shoes. Often times, we only judge people out of our own insecurities. Learn to recognize that and choose to see the better side of the story. It also helps to think of seeing someone for the first time. Forget about any wrong they've done and approach the relationship from a new angle.

"As I think, I shall be."
In other words, believe in yourself. Trust that things will work out in your favor, then work to make that happen. Happiness and confidence just might follow.
