I’ve always welcomed change. And life has brought me tons of it. I think it’s important to remember that change is good. It’s an opportunity to grow and move forward. And I find it’s much easier to focus on what’s next than to fight the inevitable. Whatever it is your dealing with, allow yourself to dive deep and really feel it out. Acknowledge what’s happening, own it, and be honest with yourself. Then explore your options, be positive, and take each day as it comes.
This is exactly how I’ve been feeling lately. It’s taken some time for me to find a certain flow, especially this past year. Change has never been an issue for me, I actually welcome it and adjust fine. But with major waves coming through sometimes it’s hard to get above water.
I always find a way to make it work. Always. And this time I slowly accepted what is and actually embrace it. I believe everything happens for a reason. Coincidences don’t really exist. So I take everything as it comes. And sometimes you wake up to what a blessing something can be.
Sadly, there will always be people who will try to bring you down. They may not do it purposely but they are doing it nonetheless. And my response to that is… No one is going to throw me off track. And no one is going to fuck up my flow. It may not be how you would choose to live your life but it’s the best for me and my family. And something we should all want for everyone is happiness. Positive vibes only.
THIS. This is where I’m at right now. And where I need to be. There are so many negative things going on in the world but lately I feel like I’m being bombarded with bullshit, ignorance, lies, hate and pure lack of empathy for others. All the while dealing with my own personal issues. So I decided to take a few steps back to reflect and let the dirt settle. And I like it here.
I know people may not feel as I do. That’s fine. We are all different. But when people judge and rant and spew idiotic comments without even listening or trying to accept others, I just don’t have time or patience for that. Not sure why anyone would waste any moment of their life dealing with such poor behavior. I feel like our country is more divided than ever and sadly people are just making it worse. I don’t care what side you’re on of whatever damn issue we are dealing with – we all need to stop, listen, communicate and accept what is. But instead, people rather step up on their soapbox and rant away. Pointing fingers. Giving orders. Telling others how they should live their lives when they don’t have that right. I’ve honestly never been so fucking annoyed and disgusted. So again, I took a few steps back and it became even clearer. I decided to stay where I was and not be a part of it.
I chose to move forward and live my life as I want. Live my truth. I am focusing on what it’s important and what makes me happy. Surrounding myself with people I love, projects that excite me, the beauty of nature, and knowledge to enlighten my journey. Living my best life and always striving to be better is how I’ve always chosen to live. I’m not going to stop now. And when things are crashing down around me, I refuse to be a part of it.
So I’ll just keep skipping on with a smile and hope that the positive energy and kindness I project could maybe rub off on others… and change the scenery a bit. Because I’m over it. I’m done. Choosing sunshine over darkness is what I need to be happy and I’m allowing the light to lead the way.
This year has been eye opening for me. It started off bad, took a turn for the worse, and now I’m left with disheartening views and such a bitter feeling toward this country and the people living in it. It’s unfortunate but everything happens for a reason.
I usually speak my mind no matter what. Always. But lately I’ve been taking a step back a bit to observe what’s going on around me. Seeing with my own eyes how people are treating others and how they use words to sadly show their true colors. The lack of understanding and empathy out there is pretty sad. And I don’t want any part of it.
I tell myself, this is NOT okay. This is NOT fine. So I tune it out because I can’t have that crap in my life. I know I cannot change the world. But I can create how I want my life to be by living MY truth. And in doing that I release positive energy into the world around me. That is how you birth change.
My happiness allows more love and kindness to bloom around me. And isn’t that what we need most? Personally, I am so over a lot of shit going on in the world. But all I can do is move forward because life doesn’t just stop. We can pause for a bit to rest… but we must get back up. Nothing changes if you stand still too long. And change is essential.
