I always wondered,… what makes the world go round? Why do bad things happen?, why do we experience hate, heartache, pain and suffering?. Why do challenging days feel like the longest days on earth and why do we question ourselves?.
My philosophy is … Don’t over think it and BRING IT ON!!! watch me survive the tidal wave of life my way, I may fall but I will get back up no matter how hard we fall or how much it hurts. For if not for the mishaps, aches and pains that we experience we would not know how to be the true warriors we can be. We would never learn how to fight the biggest battles and win the wars of life and exprience freedom. There are times in our lives that we will be faced with boulders blocking our path. Our feet will weigh heavy and feel as if we are sinking slowly, your breath shallow, your hope small and far away. This, my darlings is a test from the universe. If everything came easy, if everything were bright, happy and full … would we appreciate it? Would we know the value of it?
To work, fight and bleed for your passion, belief and freedom teaches us how to value each step. We learn pride, confidence and are inspired by those that walk tall no matter the obstacle. We are strong and there is nothing that can stand in our way. The trick is to learn how to nurture that power and use it, the right way. Once we are able to master that, we can overcome any obstacle and achieve anything and everything our hearts desire. We must build a strong foundation to stand on, water the seeds which is your heart and soul and see it grow. Every day is an opportunity to learn something new, see something different, hear something magnificent and appreciate the gifts that Mother Earth has so graciously shared with us.
Every now and then just sit in the middle of a park, close your eyes and really hear the music of life. People walking, talking, cars zooming by, planes flying over head, birds chirping and wind blowing….. Learn to use your other senses to appreciate the everyday… like the smell of a new born baby, the sound of waterfalls, the magnificent rainbows that magically appear. Feel, taste, smell and hear with your heart… and experience the world as if something new.
Get your pen and describe that feeling… how does your heart beat, your feet pound the pavement, your skin feel under the warm sun and in the rain. Write it and experience freedom with the most valuable tool you have…. which is your voice!!!!
WE RISE…. ONE VOICE AT A TIME!!!!
