As the legend goes, when the phoenix resurrects from the flames, she is even more beautiful than before.
Sometimes in life we struggle with keeping positivity and faith near us. We tend to forget the things that keep us fighting each and every day.
I made this site to help with the every day struggle anyone might be feeling. To be the positivity in life anyone may need. To give you another reason to keep fighting when you may think the war is over.
Lighthouses always brought me peace. The light it gives brings you back home, to your center. Brings you in from the darkness or danger. My hope is that this site will help you find the same peace.
It seems that we have had our daily struggles with life. Covid has not made it easy on us in the past year and counting. When we think we’re high there seems to be a curveball right after. The feeling of just not being able to get ahead is like a rain cloud am I right?
One thing that I have tried to remember is that when we feel low, it isn’t a permanent position. We will all rise again. Things in your life will start to get easier, be patient. The lowest point of your life isn’t a resting place and it doesn’t define who you are as a person. Do not label yourself. Do not be your own worst enemy. The struggles we encounter will not last forever. I truly believe if God brought you to it, he will bring you through it. Keep your faith, let it strengthen in times where you feel weakness. If you need to pray, pray. If you need find a quiet place, find your peace. If you need to kneel, kneel and pray.
The light will shine right through the storm and dark clouds and how beautiful that will be.
We go through sometimes feeling defeated or too tired to go on. We forget in the strength we carry within ourselves. We forget the strength we have in our spirit, what we carry in our soul. Always remember you carry the strength of the tallest mountain. You were NOT made without the strength of the universe inside you. Your spirit that you hold within yourself is your superpower.
So rise up. It’s Time.
You have the power and strength to be who you want to be in this life. We all come from different backgrounds. We have gone through our own trauma. We have been road blocked or met a dead end. No matter what you have been through or going through now. Fight. Stand up and fight. You have the universe at your fingertips. You have the strength of a warrior. No matter how small or how big you are. Never let anyone tell you different. Look at what you have accomplished so far in your life. Give yourself some credit and sense of accomplishment. Start believing in yourself. Start believing in your strength. Feel it in your soul like a torch in the night. Let your spirit guide you.
Your destiny is calling.
Light your way through the darkness. Let the world see your strength little warrior.
Forgiveness. It’s such an easy word to say but a harder action to do. We can hold on to so much anger and bitterness that we forget what peace is. When we hold onto anger all we do is hurt ourselves. We hurt our heart. We hurt our soul. We hurt what we hold so dear to us. So why is it so hard to forgive someone? For me, it means we have to come to terms with the hurt that it caused us. Sometimes anger seems easier than feeling of emotions of being hurt. Sounds crazy once you write it down and think about it. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that what they did was correct or warranted. It means you are able to forgive them for you.
Let me say that one more time. It means you are able to forgive them for yourself so you can move on in peace. Even I have a hard time remembering that when I need to forgive someone or even myself for that matter. Stop punishing yourself for what someone else did. Stop punishing yourself for something you did. You can’t change the past but you can accept it for what it actually is and not what we wish it could of been. In my past experience, it took me over 3 years to forgive my ex-husband. The hurt he caused, the damage, and darkness he added to my life. I held on to the anger. I held on to it all. It was easier to be angry at him instead of feeling the actual hurt. I hurt my own heart and inner peace in the process. I had no peace. The day I forgave him for myself was the day I felt the darkness dissolve from my soul. I accepted what had happened and all the emotions that came with it. Was it easy? not one bit of it was easy but my soul knew it was time.
It can be difficult to forgive someone who has hurt you but holding onto the anger and darkness that comes with it is a harder load to carry in your heart. Let it go. Find your inner peace. It’s time.
You don’t have to hide your feelings and emotions from the world. You shouldn’t have to hide them from yourself either. Being yourself means feeling every emotion that you may be feeling on the inside. Sometimes you have to find a quiet place and take the time to listen to your heart. Don’t keep your emotions bottled inside until you explode. Find a healthier method to release what you feel. Start by noticing when your tensed up or if your heart rate in increasing. Take time for yourself. Find your center. It can be easier to keep things inside and not releasing them into the world. Show yourself the same peace and love you show others around you. Be kind to yourself.
Be the light for someone. Be the warmth when all they feel is the cold. Be the person who gives a smile to someone. Be the person who takes an extra few seconds out their day to help a stranger. Tell your parents how much you love them. Tell your friend’s how much you appreciate them. Ultimately, be the kindness want to see in the world. It only takes one person to make that difference. We are all going through our own journeys in life and we all get caught up with the here and now. We are all trying to keep or find the light in our own lives.
Why not shine a light through someone’s else’s journey?
