I traveled the long road through the tunnel of despair, depression and self-doubts, and emerged a better person. The journey while difficult was worth it because you must look despair squarely in the eye to find yourself and at the of my journey I had rediscovered myself. I realized that receiving the accolades of others, being recognized for my achievements may have made me happy but was not the key to my happiness. I realized that while I was looking for validation from society the only validation I needed is from with-in. Gone was the fear of failure because I may fail again and its place was the resolve to move forward and seize the possibilities the future holds. I no longer put on a face for the world to believe I was happy but show my real face because I am happy. For in traveling the road back I found the keys to being truly happy, belief in myself and what I can accomplish. The journey may have been arduous but it helped me to find the strength to discover myself and to believe in my potential.
I will not allow negatively to rule my life. I reject the thoughts of despair and refuse to look at the glass as half empty. I embrace positivity and the possibilities of a brighter future. I will be thankful for what I do have. I will see the glass as half full and realize my positive attitude will allow me to overfill that glass with happiness. Because:
It’s Monday the start of a new week a call to action to embrace new opportunities, to strive to be better today then I was yesterday. I will not be jaded by setbacks from my past. I will use them as learning experiences and inspiration to overcome any adversity that may come my way moving forward.
Mondays are a fresh new canvass waiting for me to paint my future on. I will not paint it in black and white rather I will use bold strokes and daring colors. I will not remain within the lines that society says I must instead I will paint outside the lines with the knowledge that nothing is impossible if I dare to dream.
Monday a blank canvass, a new beginning, a chance to seize the possibilities of greatness.
The reality of life is that we all will face setbacks and obstacles. It is our reaction to this that defines who we are. We can accept it as our fate, we can take it on head first alone or we can face it with the help of those around us and with a faith that whatever deity you believe in will give you the courage and strength to overcome.
For some going at it alone is the best course of action. You believe you got yourself into this you can get yourself out. You believe it is a sign of weakness to rely on others. But this way of thinking is flawed as the universe connects us al on higher plane. We are part of the whole and choosing to reject this limits what one can accomplish.
Tapping into the power of the whole is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength. You understand that those around you will provide your soul with a motivation to press on when you might be ready to give up. That they can provide you with sounding board to express the range of emotions you are going through. That they are the light that will help guide you even in the darkest of times.
Your faith is equally important. You will be stronger simply in the belief that a higher power is working to provide you with the strength to overcome. You will be comforted in knowing that a higher power is touching and uplifting your soul. You will be relived of your worry because you believe that the higher power is working to heal your body, clear your mind, remove your obstacles and provide you with a roadmap toward a better life.
So embrace the whole, rely on your faith and your problems will be a thing of the past.
The mind is your most powerful asset. The body cannot live without the mind. In times of physical difficulties visualize yourself as you once were. Use your mind to call upon your faith, no matter what it may be, to find the courage and strength to overcome your difficulties. Use your mind to manifest the physical healing of your body. The stronger your mind is the stronger your body will become.
Do not try and bend yourself to the barriers that are stopping you from reaching your full potential. That is impossible.Simply see the truth, there are no barriers. Once you see that nothing can stop you from reaching your potential
