Getting old has certainly made me feel less courageous.
I always believe in the power of intentionality. It’s ideal but not as easy as we think.
Your life is your masterpiece. You can always paint hues of happiness IN and AROUND it.
When help or gift perfectly fits a need you get to appreciate it more, and when it empowers you, all the better.
This is what taking the higher road means, much like “being a sheep in the midst of wolves”.
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward”. – Martin Luther King Inch by inch we need to pull ourselves forward. Perfection is never the aim, it’s progress. You say, your progress is nothing compared to… Continue reading Forward
Have you met your alter ego? What is he or she like?
I don’t want to wander aimlessly through life, not knowing where I wanna go, not doing what I need to do. I don’t want to waste a lot of years trying to get by an ordinary existence.
This, is my ideal stance. Reality however was a bit different.
I enjoyed myself too much in the past. Most days were spent reacting to things instead of taking charge. This went on and on through my late twenties. I thought I would grow old just like that- a byproduct of luck. Then circumstances changed – –
loved ones lost,
career took place,
people moved on and chased their own big dreams,
while I got stuck in my own little world trying to hold it together.
I loved the idea of things being constant, unchanging and predictable. I resisted everything that atttempted to disturb my familiar state. I guess we all did at one point in time. We built our own walls and thought it will never crumble only to realize we’re actually disrupting our own growth.
When you stay too long in what’s comfortable, you start to feel just like that, comfortable-
too afraid to see the outside world,
too afraid to try anything new,
too afraid to start again,
to afraid to rebuild something from scratch.
Is this really all? Aren’t we made for something more?
Divine discontent is experienced by most of us. It’s that subtle sense of unrest that’s aching for something true and real to a person and his very existence. When it hits you, don’t ignore. Know what it wants to communicate and act on it. Ultimately, it will connect you to a divine purpose. And that purpose can only be served by no one else, but you!
Today, don’t be afraid to say yes!
Don’t be afraid to fail.
Don’t be afraid to open yourself to the countless possibilities around you.
Don’t be afraid to tread on unfamiliar waters.
Don’t be afraid to discover what you’re really made of!
Live life and fulfill your dreams with the intensity of a visionary,
the passion of an artist,
the joyfulness of a kid,
the gentleness of a child,
and the love of your Maker.
You have been set apart.
Fulfill your destiny.
Make yourself proud.
Make your creator proud!
Ask for it if you need it. But know that the people around you, can only do so much. Someday, somehow, you have to be on your own and choose to help yourself.
Maybe it’s not the same for everyone. It doesn’t have to be. It can even change at any point in time. So I guess the question is, “What is it for you?”. “What is your freely chosen task?”.
