“Imagine what you could do if you didn’t have negative thoughts controlling you.”
We all have that voice in our head. The voice that can be the cure to our healing or the poison to our toxin. They can relieve your mind from uncertainty. They can destroy the scars on your soul. They can bring down the barriers that guard your heart. They can exhibit confidence. They can scream your insecurities. They can build a stairway to your biggest dreams. They can lead you straight to hell, but there is a conductor to all of these thoughts. Luckily, it’s someone you know very well.
When we are little innocent infants, we are not given a spectacular life or a destructive life. We are simply given a life, and it is up to us to make it spectacular or destructive.
If there is anything that I learned over the last twenty-two years is that life will never be easy. Every single one of us will feel defeated more than one time in our life. Instead of drowning in the misery, allow that to be the foundation of your resurrection. Change the thoughts in your head. You’re allowed to feel the pain, but let this be an opportunity to open your heart for change.
Just because you feel weak, doesn’t mean that you aren’t strong. Just because you feel hesitant doesn’t mean you aren’t capable. Just because it hurts, doesn’t mean it will last forever.
Life is exactly what you make it out to be. Everyday you are given a choice, and that choice is to either be happy or miserable. There’s going to be people who hurt you, people who love you, who make you sad, who lift you up, who make you laugh, and who can break you into a million and one pieces, ultimately, it is solely up to you on how you react to those people, and how you allow it to effect your soul.
Nothing is ever what we thought, emptiness, mindfulness, groundlessness, compassion, love, fear, and whatever else you’d like to name the feeling you’re claiming. These are elements that we place in our minds, which lead us to the people we end up becoming. This is what life is all about.
Eighty years goes faster than you think, so don’t waste it on being overcome by the past. There is always a lesson to be learned, and a beautiful life to be lived. The choice is yours.
