Just because my lip gloss is cherry and my teeth organized that my smile is addictive does not mean I have it easier. When I smile I armor up and my cry is more of a soothing as compared to pain. I cry sometimes not because it changes things but because I need a moment to exhale. I don’t hold it together every day and I find so much solace to being comfortable with the person that I am. Breaking down can never show weakness, C.S Lewis thank you for recognizing that it takes strength to show vulnerability.
‘Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine’
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life is about experiences, taking it all in, absorbing what you need and letting go of all negativity. We meet different characters, strong personalities, go getters and those who find pleasure in putting others down. A portion of everyone stirs the pot and the end source I like to say is just how strong your concoction is but better yet how you like it. Drama is a scenario in everyone’s life the only difference is how you choose to look at it. Being in the drama? Stir the pot up and wait for the drama? Just like see it unfolds and grab popcorn? ……am just saying the scenarios are enormous.
‘Find yourself somehow it always everything’
This life is a jungle, a forest; unknown, mysterious and adventurous. This life is a battle field. The tall trees are the dreams to be achieved. The thorny trees that have big ripe fruits are the hardships, the dark that you have to endure to get to the light. The tree that is alone but catches your eye, that’s your conscious; the doubt and somehow we all seem to give more airtime to it than our strength. We seem to sell ourselves short just because. There’s a beauty in every tree, there’s an admiration in every situation, win or lose learn……take your pick.
‘The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any’
– Alice Walker
Give yourself a chance, you worth every take of every scene in your life movie. Don’t let the tall trees remain unreachable, do something today that your future self will thank you for. Don’t let the thorny tree intimidate your manicured hands, instead toil and toil harder honey even the Bible says eat from your sweat. Don’t let the lonely tree away from the forest be any familiar than it already is, give yourself the benefit of doubt. It’s nice to think through the projections but even better going into the field knowing what outcomes could be the end game.
‘It doesn’t matter what others are doing. It matters what YOU are doing!’
To say, want and do the actual deed are all different projections. Keep your dreams big and your worries less. Push yourselves, go the extra mile.
Ask. Believe. Receive ……………………….. Go The Extra Mile.
