Life breaks us all and afterward many are strong at the broken places.
~ Earnest Hemingway
Life… Did something pass by in the back of your mind as you read the quote? Hold that thought a minute, have you ever been in a position when you felt like your mind should go to shreds and you should probably be dead but nope, ain’t happening today. Why isn’t it happening? Because life has other plans. They say, “what doesn’t break you makes you stronger” and yep it does but before that happens we feel like, “bloody damn, I might as well be dead and nothing will change.” You can’t be anymore right, nothing will change if you just die. But that is the irony or greatness of our lives, we live on. 🙂 I am glad you lived on over all the weak points of your life when life brought you down on your knees and made you feel worthless even, I am so GLAD.
There’s power in you, as long as you are alive you have the power to change things for the better, as long as you do not let your problems and the world overpower you in your mind. That is where your original battlefield lies, in your mind. Let go of the illusion that everything must go as you planned and you will win half the battle after that all that’s left is win over your thoughts and keep going.
life happens to us all, how we deal with it makes our stories a lot different than others. what makes it even better is the capability to reach out and be there when the same happens to someone else.
What I am trying to say is, do not let your past (yes it happened) but you are more than that, you are powerful and you need to change your sails directions now, the sea is stormy and you want to survive it so you can live to tell the tale. Let your strength take over for you, it is the ability to keep going on when you are already tired and want to quit, it is the ability that keeps you going when you think you can’t anymore. You know, things happen out of nowhere and then we are left to deal with the outcome just like the seas get stormy all of a sudden and all you are left with is your boat and a pedal and that is all you have to work with until you find a shore or a bigger boat finds you, just imagine throwing your hands in the air and screaming happily because you, yes YOU made it. Isn’t that amazing?
Wow writing this, all I want to do now is, whenever I face storms in my sea I am going to imagine that moment when I can throw my hands in air and scream because I made it. I am gonna do that now for all the past victories that I forgot to celebrate because I was too stupid to think of them that way. Yippie ./
Have fun everyone & enjoy your victories. 🙂
