I’m wrong but it’s alright with me

Standard

I’m extremely focused on my betterment. 
Everyday I see a quote,or a person, or an ideal that is opposite of my dreams my views and my vision for my life. 
I’m sure that we all do. 

I’m sure that everyone has something to mentally tell us that we’re wrong. Here’s the thing. You may be wrong. 

According to that person or that information you are definitely wrong. 

So what. Be wrong then. 

If it’s right for you who cares if it’s wrong for someone else. I’ve said this time and time again. 

Nobody has to live your life but you. Live it. If you covered what you could handle today then you did enough. 

  
Everyone has a different mentality. What’s not enough for someone else is just enough for me. 

I got some good advice on how to move forward with meeting other authors and people on social media. It worked. The man said do a little until it meant a lot. 

I’m not chasing fame. I’m chasing my dreams. If they include fame… well hot dayum! Bonus!!

I’m chasing meaningful relationships and friendships that last. I’m chasing peaceful vibes and beautiful thoughts. If I die today I want to know that I went on happy. At peace with myself. 

Nothing in the world is worth my thoughts being at war with themselves. Ten months ago I chased enlightenment. Meaning I went after finding myself. Finding out what life meant to me. Finding out what my beliefs were and what was really important to my soul. 

  
It wasn’t easy. I almost lost someone I hold very high in my life. Trying to become more I almost broke down. Then one day like a light bulb it came to me to go backwards. Figure out what was important to me and then move forward with my life. I’m doing that daily. 

It’s why I can be grateful. 

I’m owning my life. I’m responsible for what I feel. I’m strong in my weaknesses. 

I refuse to go at any other pace than my own. The people who love me really love me. They have zero desire to change me. I have zero desire to change them. We just grow and flow together. That doesn’t always look good but it’s reality. I love my life. 

I’m blessed for the people who I have meet along the way. I’m even more blessed for the people who have stayed. 

  
Be thankful for the journey you’re on. That’s the only advice that I can give. Because if you’re thankful in the small oh how wonderful life will be when your world becomes bigger.

Power of expression 

Standard

Creative expression has become my passion. To communicate isn’t enough. I want to sing from the rooftops and dance at 3 am. Write old school love stories and recite  Edgar Allen Poe.

  
To be able to say how I feel with articulation has been a present that I’ve been able to unwrap daily.

  
Blessings can be so simple. I’m grateful for all of my blessings. When I was younger I that blessings were the miracles that I received. Now I know that their everything that I’ve ever encountered. 

Waking up = a blessing. 

  
Gratitude can be the missing link to happiness over depression. To love over hate. To hope over despair. 

Day 26 of grateful January. What form of expression are you grateful for. I’m grateful for creativity.

This week

Standard

Grateful for another week. 

Trying times a week can be. 

  
When hearts are heavy and drama tends to prevail. I can sometimes fail to be the best version of myself. 

 Finding gratitude is a way of life. 

I push myself into the realm of gratefulness even though I have ups and downs. I push myself to be thankful for others. I’m choosing to change my ways. 

  
The choice has been made to be better. My gratitude doesn’t end at the end of this month. This was a preview to the life that I would like to lead going forward. 

Moments that I’ve been grateful for this week include laughter. They include loved ones. That include a special someone that means the world to me. 

  
Day 25 what moments this week made me grateful.

I’m grateful for today.

Rooted Flow 

Standard

Sometimes in life things do not go my way. 

I have often tried to force situations. Pray for situations. Lie to make a situation go the way I wanted it to. 

Finally I’m at a place in my life where my ability to go with the flow has brought me through some tuff times. It has opened my eyes to different points of view. It has been a pain in my rear end but it has also been a gift from above. 

  
I’m grateful that by allowing myself the room to breakdown my barriers and climb over my on doubts. I have been able to see the world in a with a renewed state of mind. 

I’m more flexible with life. I’m more open to the beauty around me and I have become incredibly thankful for this gift. I probably wouldn’t have tried a lot of the things that I’ve tried. I would have closed myself off to the world and climbed into a mindless consciousness.

  
I can handle myself better now. I owe a lot of that to my ability to flow. To move freely,to move forward. To bounce back from fear and mistakes. To enjoy the highs and the lows. I’m still figuring out life. As I do I feel blessed and less stressed. There were days were I spent time just speaking negative thoughts to myself. Days where I couldn’t see myself being anything to anyone. Let alone a blogger to an online community. 

I didn’t know I had a voice. I didn’t know that I would matter to anyone else. I’m thankful for the opportunity, the path and the peace of mind. I’m grateful for all of you. For your comments ,for the likes and for just allowing me to have a voice on this earth.

Day 13 of grateful January and the question is: What abilities are you grateful for? I’m grateful for the ability to change, to grow and to be my most authentic self reflection.

Memories that remind me to be happy 

Standard

When I was about 14 years old I went to Kansas City to stay with my great grandmother. I wasn’t being safe with my life and needed to be removed from my friends at the time. I was evolving myself in activities that were dangerous to myself and others. I needed a change of environment.

My parents sent me there to keep me out of trouble for the summer. I spent those months trying to figure out things about myself. During my time there I visited my grandfather and my great aunt Zista. I remember being afraid of that big ol worn down house. The creeks and the sounds from the old wood. I jumped in her bed for safe keeping. I knew if I stayed in her room just long enough for the sun to come up that I would be alright to sleep. I needed the sunlight to shine through and show me the things the darkness couldn’t show me. 

  
That’s the beauty of the light. 

Nature’s natural light showed all the things that regular light couldn’t. Once the sun came up I could see everything that was once hidden by shadows. Hidden by darkness.

Today I woke up with some tummy issues and with some soul issues. I let myself be guided through some yoga postures and then I let my thoughts be guided through some healing. 

The beauty of memories are that they can be seen from different angles. The beauty of life is that out of the darkness comes light. 

What memories are you grateful for? I’m grateful for them all, but definitely this one in particular.

Chakra of my life 

Standard

2 something in the am and meditative heart music humming in my ears.

I am calm. 

Finally.

In a chaotic world where mood swings and bullsh*t corner the market I continuously have to find my zen.

I’m not sure where I belong I just know that I’m focused on forward movement. Slow. Steady. Movement. Not too much not too little, just enough to put my mind at ease to deal with anything other than my inner peace.

I value my peace for than anything in this life. 

  
I’m thankful for another day. I’m thankful for the people close to me. I’m grateful for the grace and mercy that I receive from above. 

Blue also known as Azul is the color of my dominant chakra. Creativity is my gratitude color. I’ve always been in love with the color blue. For me it symbolizes triumph. It symbolizes my mood when I’m down. It even symbolizes the way I express my thoughts. Blue is beautiful. The color of clear water in the mist of a wave. The color of morning dew in a glistening haze. The color of hope for things unforeseen. 

I return to gratitude everyday. No matter what mess or annoyance has happened in the past tense. I purposely focus my intentions on gratitude for the things that bring me out of a negative headspace.

  
If all I can do in this life is express how small I am and how incredibly big this universe and celestial divine energy is then here I am screaming out from inside my soul. I am nothing but a source of gratitude. A sign pointing upward. A roadmap away from confusion and into a space of silence. 

Today I am grateful for this life and my favorite color….blue.

Life’s gentle flow 

Standard

In the stillness of night. I awaken the soul within me. I let the sounds of water and waves soothe my thoughts and my emotions. I embrace the things that I cannot change. 

Subconsciously I wish for a life a little different from now. But earnestly I’m hoping that realness prevails. 

Things aren’t always what they seem, yet I go with the current anyway. I can’t change anyone other than myself so, I’m changing. 

Life will send me anything that I believe in. Thank goodness I still believe in love. 

Today is one day before the end of this year. Just like any other day it’s meant to be cherished. 

  
It’s the weekend y’all! Enjoy it . Live it . Love it. The day is yours do with it as you please. Hopefully you choose to do good with it.
