A Note to anyone who needs to hear it.
We don't "get over" or "move on" from our trauma.
We are forced to make space for it.
We carry it. We learn to live with it.
And sometimes , we thrive in spite of it.
One day it just clicks .
You realize what is important and what isn't .
You learn to care less about what other people think of you ,
and more about what you think of yourself .
And then you smile.
You smile because at that moment ,
you are truly proud of yourself.
Proud of the person you fought
so hard to become.
I hope you have the courage to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, from anything that fails to inspire your mind. I hope you have the courage to grow , to change , to do things differently than what is expected of you , to step back and seek out the kinds of things that ignite passion and excitement within your very bones.
But most of all , I hope you have the courage to forgive yourself , for all of the times you did not have the courage to believe that you deserved more than the kind of life you were settling for.
You never really know the true impact you have on those around you.
You never know how much someone needed that smile you gave them.
You never know how much your kindness turned someone's entire life around.
You never know how much someone needed that long hug or deep talk.
So don't wait to be kind. Don't wait for someone to be kind first.
Don't wait for better circumstances or for someone to change.
Just be kind , because you never know how much someone needs it.
There are stars you haven't seen and loves you haven't loved.
There is light you haven't felt and sunrises yet to dawn.
There are dreams you haven't dreamt and days you haven't lived
and nights you won't forget and flowers yet to grow.
And there is more to you that you have yet to know.
Begins the moment you choose
Not to allow another person or
Event to control your emotions.
*Disclaimer... My posts of enlightenment are just that. It's random, not posted towards anyone. *
It was pointed out to me that soemone took it personal my last post lol.. Really not intentional, but if the shoe fits, I suppose wear it?
I have fed mouths that have talked shit about me.
I have wiped tears from faces of people who have caused mine.
I have picked up people who have tried to knock me down.
I have been there for people who have not been there for me.
Crazy? Maybe .. But I will NOT lose myself in the hatred of others.
Life isn't easy, but even through all of the bullshit, I will still be here
with my heart in the right place.
To the one person who is reading this , I know you sometimes feel tired and fed up. You sometimes feel close to breaking down. Sometimes you will lose hope. Sometimes people will hurt you. There will be times you will feel defeated and frustrated. But , there is a strength within you , even when you feel weak. Stay strong as better days will always be just around the corner. Stay strong for the ones who matter in your life. Keep fighting.
