Life has a way of turning us inside out. We do our best to create the best life for ourselves and those we care deeply about. But what happens when our lives are shattered into a million pieces? Simple, we pick up those pieces and move on. A friend this week reminded me that it’s ok to stay down, while this is true, I’m also reminded that it’s also important to get back up. Get back up, push your shoulders back and move on with those shattered pieces, it’s ok to nurse those wounds, time has a way of healing all wounds and helping us put those pieces back together. The picture might be a bit distorted, a bit faded, it may even be unrecognisable. But this is what happens after a renewal, we shed the old and come into the new. That old distorted, faded, unrecognisable vision is overshadowed by your renewed vision of hope, joy, desire…….All you have to do is believe in the process and keep moving!
“Just because you fail once, it doesn’t mean you’re going to fail at everything. keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself because if you don’t, then who will? so keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” ― Marilyn Monroe,
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” ― Hunter S. Thompson,
People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.
