From the ground up, we choose how we want something to effect us. We choose if we want to be better and grow or if we want to be bitter and stagnate and possibly die as a result of our uncontrolled emotions and thoughts. We choose to live or slowly cause or own destruction. We choose to live and experience happiness or hold on to anger, frustration, guilt, sadness, or worry which can lead to overwhelming stress and possibly cause a heart attack, stroke, or a “rare” health condition. Your mind reacts and so does your body.
Is anyone or anything worth that pain and worth your life and right to live?
If the song/ lyrics, whether Blues, Country, R&B, rap, etc spoke to my spirit, it became my favorite song. The gift to sing, to speak to the soul and spirit of others is a wonderful and awe-inspiring gift. It is not about the messenger; it’s about the message.
Tim Mgraw’s song “Live like you were dying” came to me after doing some self-reflection journaling this am.
You never know when something or someone may no longer be available. I am trying to live life with purpose and intention and not just assume things will work out.
At every stage in our life, we have lessons to learn. Once lessons are learned, we receive these spiritual gifts to help us move on to the next stage (confidence, vision, compassion, etc.). What lesson are you needing to learn?
1. Advocating for yourself such as getting out of an abusive or negative relationship,
2. Taking care of your body such as resting your body more, eating healthier and leading a more active lifestyle,
3. Accepting that you are beautiful just the way you are,
4. Taking action and not waiting on others such as trusting the ideas given to you and go for it.
We are to evolve to our highest self. You are here for reasons. No one has the right or authority to tell you that you are a mistake, or that you do not belong here. Your birth is reason enough that you have divine purpose.
