Life is beautiful. Life is not easy. Each day it’s a challenge to move forward and enjoy the beauty within us. We are all unique, and have our own battles. I personally struggle with self-motivation from time to time. I have a goal and a dream for my personal life. I have a plan and it seems like forever to reach. Time will always pass us by. Time does not stop for us to figure out our next decision. I choose to let time pass by as I live moment by moment. Living the moment will lead to fulfill our purpose in life. Breathe in, and know you are free to be human. A human who is imperfect, but is willing to grow and learn. Always live with purpose. Let your soul guide you into the art of life.
Today I woke up grateful about where I am at in life. I may not have much, but I do have an amazing and supportive man as a husband. Now, I was not always grateful, I nagged a lot about where I was at in life, and always lived life wishing. Wishing to graduate from college, wishing for a better job, wishing for a better car, wishing for more money, wishing to be married, wishing, wishing, and wishing. It was never an end to my wishing. Do not get me wrong it is okay to desire, and have big dreams. However, it is important to desire it with a good attitude, and trusting the process in life. I would always ask my husband how he maintained a positive attitude during our hard times, and he would always say, ” I trust in God”. of course, I would look at him and say “SO DO I!! But I am still anxious!” I wanted to run and achieve my goals in life from one night to the next morning. I had to really learn the term PATIENCE. I worked with children with autism, and really thought I had this whole patience ability down. I was wrong. Patience is not only tolerating children’s behavior without getting upset or frustrated. There has to be a fundamental process to gain patience. I had to seek for an internal purpose in order to have the patience. My purpose as an RBT therapist, is to give a quality session that will make a difference in the long run. I may not see a difference in the child’s behavior the next day, but I probably will in a couple of months. I had to really take a look at my life, and analyze my purpose of being in this world. Live life step, by step, and enjoy the present.
My husband and I have been married for almost 2 years, and today marks 8 years of being together!!!! I seriously can’t believe how much time has passed by. It has been quite the journey. We have learned so much about each other. We have learned to love, to be patient, and to be more caring. Each relationship is unique we all have our differences. Trust me when I say relationships can get really complicated and messy. It is the reason we need to nourish our relationship daily. As the years pass by we acknowledge our flaws and weaknesses, so we accept them and help each other achieve our goals. Our first year of marriage was not easy at all. We really had to compromise in so many aspects of our life. Financially was one of them, and we managed slowly to budget, and invest for our future. We are both in school at the moment, and well it has been a little stressful. However, we make sure each week we have time for the both of us. We started a new routine each night before bed, and it has helped us in our relationship so much. Each night before we go to bed we will talk about our day, our goals, dreams, desires, and we read a little scripture following with prayer. Let me just say this routine has really helped our spiritual and mental health. It is important we are both spiritually, mentally, and physically healthy. In a relationship we are two in one. We are two different people who decided to be devoted to each other, and love unconditionally. I am not always motivated to keep going, sometimes I am drained, and stress can get the best of me. However, I know I have a partner who is supportive, loving, and lift me up when I feel at my lowest. At the end of the day, we need each other to keep on going in life, and to achieve all of our goal. Remember who you are, and your purpose of your own destiny.
