You’re here because of where you’ve been.
You’ve been where you had to be to get you where you are.
You don’t like where you are so you continue to move.
You move forward to continue your path.
And down the road you’ll get to where you’ll get because of where you are now.
The path is just as important as the destination so keep your head up and absorb all around you. Appreciate each moment, no matter the emotion it invokes.
Choose wisely as you take your next leap of faith.
You’ll keep getting the same results if you keep making the same choices.
You want something different? You want more?
It’s all up to you in where you go from here.
Make it count. Make it great. Picture your ending and jump with enthusiasm.
What makes the world so bright
To the small child inside us all?
The fear and stress we have
Is from being here….
But wanting to be there…
It comes from knowledge, faith and hope
Of a brighter beautiful way…
One that we pray for each and every day
Behind your eyes are answers to it all
But we choose to hide instead of
We choose to hope and then say;
it was never meant to be…
But the truth, you see
Is that YOU never made it be…
Step outside of the walls that contain…
Take a leap of faith
Take what you have and use it
Mold it into new
Be a better, brighter you.
It’s not what you have
It’s what you know…
And if you stop hoping
And start doing…
You will see you’re not alone.
Carrying a heavy load of baggage is tiresome and frustrating. You hurdle through every day hoping it will eventually go away. You try new things, you focus on something brighter, but in the back of your mind you still hear and feel that throbbing… The throbbing that the past so effortlessly reminds you of day after day. Little things trigger it and off your mind goes into a tangent that can easily ruin your progress.
So why do we hold on to the things that hurt us? Why do we let the mistakes of our past and the hurt others bestowed upon us cloud the life we have moved on to live?
Is it possible to truly let those things go? Is it possible to not be a product of your own experiences? I think it is… In a way.
The baggage that we carry can be lifted, it can be altered and manipulated into something beneficial. It’s nearly impossible to just forget and let go… But we can take the baggage and apply it as a lesson. We can bedazzle and decorate the hell out of it and make it into something that allows us to grow.
We are not what happens to us. We are not the mistakes we have made. But we are a people of events, mishaps, triumphs and victories. They are the obstacles that give us each our unique character. They are layers that rest upon our divine core.
Learn to let go. Learn to take the good out of whatever comes and apply that to your person. Leave the bad behind as a lesson learned. Walk away from the bullshit.
It does nothing for you. Today is a new day. Perhaps the only day you have left. You are a new person in every moment that passes. Embrace that. And don’t be the baggage you carry. Be the person you want to be.
On that note… This is me walking away 😉
