Every person you have met in life and even those you have yet to encounter are fighting an inner battle no one knows about. Everyone is fighting an inner demon or an insecurity about themselves.
We all have a tendency to want what someone else has or even just feeling unsure about who we are as a person compared to another.
So this is my reminder to you.
You are beautifully made just the way you are. Just as beautiful as the brightest star in the sky. You are strong and unique in your own way. There is no one else like you in this world, how amazing is that! There may be things you don’t love about yourself but there are also so many amazing things about you too.
Remind yourself everyday of all the things you love about yourself until you simply don’t forget. It’s always a battle worth fighting. You are just as worthy of your own love that you give so freely to others.
Life has been difficult for everyone. So please don’t be hard on yourself, give yourself some grace. There will be times where you feel beside yourself because you haven’t accomplished what you wanted in the time frame you wanted. Sometimes what we want is not what we need.
Enjoy life and all of what is to come. The point of life is not to accomplish everything, have some fun! You will figure everything out in due time, be patient with life. Everything we go through will set us up for what we were born to accomplish. It will make sense one day. Take the losses, heartbreak, and joys with stride. Don’t be scared to make mistakes! That is what life is all about, trial and error.
Get lost in finding yourself. Get lost in the journey. Let it encompass all you do. Always always always believe in yourself. Forget what others may think of you, you are not here for their approval. Make yourself proud before anyone else in life. You are worth it all.
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.
