If it interferes with your purpose, it’s not worthy of your time.
Don’t allow yourself to be persuaded too easily-stand firm in your beliefs. Lost people are always in search of people to lead in the wrong direction.
It’s up to us to create positive spaces-be proactive in your journey-your perspective is essential in uncovering YOUR happy.
Despite being raised “baptist” I’m not high on religion. Sadly, it has evolved into a forum for judgment and exclusion. We all “sin” and will be held accountable by a higher power, but God didn’t intend for the bible to be used as a tool for condemning one another.
The majority of us have the innate ability to reflect, and sometimes our pasts haunt us. This is especially true when we don’t readily accept its lessons. God takes us through different storms-disquising them as “good times” and purposefully doesn’t reveal that they are “tests” in hopes that we become better people. When we fight our way through the storm, the next step is reflection-regret has no rightful place in your journey. Learn courtesy of your mistakes and hold yourself accountable. Remember, even your past has a purpose.
Everything happens in just the right timing. Slow down-relax-and go with the flow. Our destiny is a masterpiece created by a higher power. I highly doubt that our level of appreciation would be the same without the journey.
Be patient with yourself-you’re doing the best you can. Life has a way of catching us off guard. It seems as though the moment we conquer one obstacle, there is another one evolving. Experiencing “low” points is inevitable-we all fall on “hard” times whether it be emotionally, financially, spiritually, socially-sometimes things don’t pan out the way we hope. This is why it’s important to be in tune with ourselves. When life comes at you sideways, your inner peace can help you feel your way through. I’ve never heard of a life without challenges, but contrary to popular belief-you have the power to create peace in your life. A peace that cannot be diluted by the “ugly” in this world.
If we never have to overcome-how will we measure our strength? Experiences-both good and bad, provide us with an opportunity to acquire wisdom and to challenge ourselves. I speak of strength, not with regard to physicality, but to our mentality, spirituality, character-the things that really matter. I know sometimes it feels like the whole world is moving and you’re standing still, but approach these “moments of stillness” as an opportunities to tune in-to get to know yourself-to plan your next move. “Stillness” is a critical yet often overlooked element in progress.
