Leaving Behind the Baggage of Insecurities

The things you want are always possible; it is just that the way to get them is not always apparent. The only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life is you, and that can be a considerable obstacle because you carry the baggage of insecurities and past experience.

What to Do When Life Turns Inside Out!

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!
