I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

Be Confident

Life is what you make of it.

My mind has been working and racing to goals.

The hardest part is trying to get up each time to only be nailed right back down.

I have become that different self.

I have not lost myself but see myself in another life more differently.

My different self, has given me many opportunities.

I had discovered and re-discovered life all sides of life.

I let my experiences teach me about myself and that had made me feel positive and free.

The tough life taught me to live better and to be more relaxed.

Through my struggles I have gained lots more than I can say.

What I have been through in this life I would not trade for the millions in this entire world.

I am different and that is what makes me most special to all those who surround me.

I see myself as unique, smart, observant and with an open-mind.

I enjoy learning, and meeting people. Over the years I have met many different people.

My time spent working has made me talkative and happier.

I don't feel the need to please anyone.

I am satisfied and don't feel alone. I have discovered the most important things in my life.

My family are always by my side and that gives me the greater strength when I mostly need it.

  • What is in the heart matters the most not what is on the outside.

I don't believe in passing comments on one's appearances. ''Judging a book by its cover'' is a wrong approach.

I will always know my roots and myself better than anyone else.

Others should not assume they know me.

Unless they are close enough to me to have learned that much about my character, then they are free to share their opinions.

Some people feel they know someone by just looking at them that does not work for me.

If you had read my work for long enough then you will know me better.

I can't satisfy the needs of others. I know if I did that it would neglect my life.

I want to be true to me.

I do have knowledge of others when I meet up but that does not give me a right to judge them.

My life has changed and I don't let anyone's opinion get the better of myself.

I am not of what others think of me I am what I made of myself. I value myself.

I see myself as worthy and reliant.

What people think of me is far from my mind.

The gossip and negative thoughts I don't care for in my way of life.

I don't go over the edge when someone does not know how to appreciate my friendship.

I have become this person at present, as I have worked through many battles to be a strong individual.

I hold on to what I know is my true valuable being.

All people don't accept me but I don't care for that nonsense.

I am not here to make someone happy or sad I am here to live my life purposes.

  • I am here to make me happy.

I am in a different place with different people.

Those who accept me and show me warmth from their heart are the people I intend to stick by.

I don't need anyone to please me so I don't feel obliged to please anyone else.

I stand out because I am different in my own way.

My different self has made me more confident and more like-able to some people.

People are always curious about me and find me to be a very interesting person.

You can discover many different people only a few will interest you. There will often be the many unanswered questions.

People are all different in some ways.

I am different for my reasons and they are for their reasons.

Though some people can show great confidence deep down there are weaknesses in everyone.

Some people don't show their problems or weaknesses they pretend to feel happy and secure.

I am not perfect. I too, have issues but try not to make my problems a priority.

My happiness is my priority together with my loving family.

I am truly confident that allows me to overcome my weak points if any pops up.

You are fearful and feel intimidated as anyone else feels so don't feel alone with that part of your life.

The normal day-to-day life is full of surprises. You just got to know how to cope with what is right in front of you.

All people can't be the same and I did not think that is possible.

Imagine the boredom with everyone doing the same and speaking the same to you.

Life can be interesting if you let it be.

Being with the different people has taught me to appreciate my life.

  • You are only different from what you choose to be.

Being different has made me stand out on all occasions. I love that feeling of being different.

My different-self has given me a greater perspective of my life.

My many experiences have shown me a worthy and valuable meaning to myself.

I love that my culture is so different here.

The Indian food in comparison to Croatian food and combination has its purpose and is also tasty but in another way.

Different enriches your life and gives you such pleasure.

I stay spiritually strong and like to educate myself about new topics.

What I look like does have meaning to me but I don't overdo that part about me. I take care of my family and me in different ways.

I focus on what is important to me.

I am different in my culture and my lifestyle.

To have one of me in the region I live in makes me feel exotic.

I have a role to play and do my best I can to fulfill that role.

I don't focus on what is not easily reachable.

I look for what I know is worthy of my time and effort.

I am living my life and doing what I know is of benefit to me.

My life is growing into another life and all that has made me the different self.

Life is great when you put your mind into making it that way.

Never ignore happiness without happiness you won't be truly living.

The feelings I have are strong for my life to improve and make more alive from the inside.

Nothing is permanent in life the good times and the bad times are all temporary.

It will pass by and another experience will come along.

I love to be happy and free and that is exactly how I prefer to be.

My number one share of my life is to be happy and relaxed with what I have what I don't have I don’t think of.

I faced reality all the way dreaming is a choice for some people and not so much for me.

  • Courage is rare.

I have that and I know how it feels to be on a pedestal.

I felt encouraged by my loved ones and feel that way in my different self.

You can run but you can't hide.

You can try to cut off your nose to spite your face and you can pretend to be in love when you are not.

The heart can't be denied of showing the true emotions.

What others say may not matter to you but what you have to say should matter the most to yourself.

Life is different

What makes you the Different Self?

See results

Be you

Great Moments

Life is what you make of it.

      I love the title of this hub, Devika. I love the first sentence, too. "My mind has been...racing to goals." I know exactly what you mean, because it applies to me, too! I have many goals, but it's so hard to find time to work on them. Thank you once again for sharing your thoughts and the interesting photos.

      I agree with you that it is not right to judge a book by its cover. We are all different and it is only when we look at someone from a neutral eye that we have a chance to really see who they are.

      I loved lines I do not feel need to please anyone. Once you try to please people they get more demanding and there is never end to it. Do your thing and if someone is pleased in the process then it is fine.
