What Is Your Foundation Made Out Of?

Bricks, sticks, wood, other people’s opinions, “the way it’s always been done,” fears, hatred, envy, love empathy, equality, compassion, or others?

As I was writing today’s quote, I thought about the Three Little Pigs. When life’s storms come huffing and puffing to blow your house down, will your house (you) come falling down? If your house falls apart, what have you learned in rebuilding your home?

We are all responsible for our homes. What may have worked in the past, may not work now. And it is okay to ask, “Did that thing really work in the past?

After experiencing sexual abuse, I needed to rebuild my house with something steadier. When the wolf returned, I was more prepared because I reached out to nature (God) and asked for help. I listened, observed, and built a relationship with myself. I started trusting myself and attracted the right equipment.

Sexual abuse did not break me. I became more aware of the importance of building a foundation because of my sexual abuse storm.

I didn’t know that I needed to heal, but I sought something more. I have based many of my choices in life off the thought “If one person can do it, so can I.”

You have the ability to heal; nothing overcomes you unless you let it.

The blueprint to our foundations starts in our mind and consists of our internalizations.

What have you internalized from your abuse? How is it helping you to achieve the dream you have inside of you?

To Your Best Life,

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Are we more than our experiences and self-imposed labels, and sabotages?

Is the state of our character and spirit dependent on how others treat us or see us? If we allow people to change us, what did we believe about ourself in the first place?

I am confident that we can only be and do what we internalize. If we think we are powerless, then we will be indecisive and stand in confusion. We will allow negative seeds to penetrate our subconscious and become “someone unlike ourselves.” If we believe we are strong, then our choices, majority of the time, we will eat healthy foods, spend quiet time alone, and be active.

It was easier for me when I was younger to see the tests of life. I must remind myself to ask what is it that life wants to strengthen in me instead of feeling sorry for myself or feel that someone is attacking me.

Make this lifetime great!
