I wrote this in a journal entry not too long ago and I always refer back to it:
surrender to the stillness of this moment
and feel the possibilities arise
you are the maker of your own happiness
do not rely on others for safety
the most unconditional love is inside of yourself
you are your own home
make it comfortable, make it beautiful.
love more and fear less.
I have been doing a lot of soul searching lately and I feel stronger than ever that I truly know who I am and know the things I need to work on. I will never give up on progressing. It is a constant state for me as I do not think we are ever at our best selves. There is always more we can accomplish in this life. It can often seem easier to succumb to the harder times in our life and to stay in a place of denial. I assure you both of these couldn’t be further from the truth. When life is harder than usual, let it happen to you but don’t let it become who you are. Fight to stay strong. Strive to be more positive every day. If you can wake up every day morning that you are going to handle the day to come with grace, patience and positivity and can go to sleep knowing that you did the best that you could do, that is all that matters. You owe yourself a beautiful life.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin
I hope that anyone reading this can find something in these words to make you feel just that much better about your day and your life.
