I am a human with so many flaws. I have gained and lost friends. It’s part of life as we grow older and develop into our new stage of life. Each stage it’s so crucial, you will not only learn so much about yourself, but you learn how much your presence can affect others. I have to remind myself to keep on pushing. If I am breathing than I need to live a beautiful life. There are moments in my life that I feel behind or left out within the generations. Growing into a positive mindset takes time, and practice. Trusting the process of our destiny. We don’t always wake up everyday and like the persona that is reflected in the mirror. Sometimes we will feel discouraged, and even contemplate life. Everyone has doubted their purpose in life once.
I encourage you to keep pushing and breathing this beautiful life. Be yourself, and always stand to what you believe in. Always trust the purpose. A tree grows every year, and regardless of the changes in the environment, it evolves within the seasons each year. A tree will never stop being a tree during cold winter days. So you will never stop being you regardless of your environment changes. You will grow, and evolve exactly where you need to be in life.
I am not the person who takes life too seriously. I am free spirited, and respect everyones opinion about life and their beliefs. I am aware we are all different and unique in our own special way. There are times in our life we end a chapter to start a new one. There was a teacher in my high school who would always say “it’s okay to start all over”. However, I don’t believe we necessarily start all over. We simply start a new mission in life, and take everything we have learned to accomplish our ultimate purpose. You live and you learn. You breathe and you believe. You laugh and you love!
Last night as I was getting ready for bed, I thought of my journey in life so far. It has not been an easy path, but I have learned so much about myself as a person. I have grown and taken leaps of faith. I have learned to trust the process. God has a purpose and a plan for our life don’t give up. Life is beautiful, and yes sometimes is not always so bright. However, opening our eyes, walking step by step, listening to our heart, speaking truth, and being able to breathe has given me the ability to be grateful. I have always been scared of the unknown, I fear not knowing what tomorrow holds. I am still learning to trust in God and not fear of my future. I am growing and learning. I am outstanding, I am intelligent, I am beautiful, and I live a life with purpose. Be kind and loving to yourself everyday.
Life will not be easy. You will be weary. There are times in my life I feel with so much potential and strength to overcome obstacles. Other times I do not feel motivated to show up to my regular schedule. I have learn to show up, and be there, see where the world will take me. Observe your surrounding and where you are at the moment, and just be grateful. A special moment in time will not occur twice. Breathe, live, and be grateful. You are Blessed.
There was a time in my life I enjoyed pleasing others. I was the people pleaser who hardly said NO to anybody. I wanted people to like me, and to be a genuine friend to them. I always said what you wanted to hear. I was never the honest friend, I wanted you to like me. Through the years Life taught me so much about people, and the power we had to control many things in our life. I was never a negative person I desired to be good to others. One day I realized I did not have to be friends with toxic people who overwhelmed and drained me. I could say NO to them because I was not entitle to do anything for them. I was not a jerk about it, it just took me time to realize my worth in life. I started Loving myself more, I took care of myself, I enjoyed being with myself. I said YES to myself. Life will hit you hard sometimes, but as long as you have yourself there for encouragement, and motivation nothing will ever stop you.
