You know, someone or something once told me; To be patient, that one day you will meet people exactly like you...
To this very day, I still ask myself:
'In what world is this whisper coming from? Who is the person who allows me to think these thoughts that clearly isn't entirely one's own thoughts?'
Who allows me to see into this world we call reality and who allows me to dream it?
Who chooses how our life plays out ?
Us or God?
Okay, Let's admit being the person that I am, many times have I allowed those moments go to waste, many times have I sat there and wondered "Am I capable of being who I dream to be?" and honestly? I'll never truly know, Unless! Yes, unless I try, unless I put my beliefs into thoughts, thoughts into words, words into action, actions into habits, habits into values, and finally your values become your DESTINY. (Words inspired by Gandhi) If you're going to fail at something, fail at something you're passionate about, fail at something that will teach you meaning and purpose.
What is your destiny?
But first, what is your beliefs, your thoughts, your words, your action, your habits?
Because that, that creates your destiny...
No one said Life would be easy, and there is no set time to fully achieving your true purpose, whatever your purpose may come to be, it is at your own pace. I must admit to the fact that I tend to give up more often than I'm proud of, but I always seem to amaze myself how many times I've fallen and got back up. How many times I've been broken into a million pieces and still manage to put the pieces back together. I could say that I entirely did that myself, but I'll just be a liar! Life will always be the greatest lesson, the greatest influence in our lives and our biggest enemy and the biggest asset to our external and internal world; we are the deciders "we are the wild youth, chasing visions of our futures, maybe one day, we will reveal the truth..." - (Lyrics by Daughter - Youth)
The beings of life will continue to push and pull at you until you realize that you have more control than you imagine, you can fight back or allow the forces of life to beat at you, step all over you, or you can say "NO, I'm the player, so lets play the game..." And play it to win. If you fail, play it harder, and harder, and harder. Until you become the best of your world and God's world.
If you want something, simple: If you want to be a writer, then write. If you want to be a painter, pick up the paint brush, if you want to take over your life? Then pick up yourself, pick up all the shit in your life, and plant a garden. What are you waiting for? Turn that chapter, and start writing...
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”- Marianne Williamson(speech given by Nelson Mandala in 1996.)
Words of Gratitude:
(I would like to say, thank you to all my inspiration to all of life and everything in it that inspires me to grow and to learn. I truly didn't feel very motivated to do this, but I guess the people in my life and the voice in my head, convinced me to sit here for quite awhile, and push me to write, to try and inspire, to push, and to pick up that controller, and control...)
