By Summer: Everyone of us have issues we are dealing with – whether it’s something big or small. We are all going through some sort of a challenging situation on a daily basis. Let’s face it: Life is full of surprises. Good and bad. Some of us wish we were born with a guidebook to help us through the difficult phases.
There are so many crazy things going on in the world. Everything you read about in the newspaper is negative. Then you switch on the television and surprise-surprise – more negativity. I look around me and all I see is angry people fighting,murdering, raping… We can’t escape the negativity in this world. It will sadly always be there, but one thing we do have control over is our own lives. You have the power to take your mess and turn it into a positive message for everyone to see and learn from.
If you are in an abusive relationship, you have the power to use your experiences to help other people who are going through the same pain and suffering. It might be hard to find the positive in a bad situation, but trust me. There is someone out there that needs your help! Abuse of any form is hell and should not be tolerated. I have been through this myself, but one thing I know for sure is that there is a lesson for all of us. You just have to find it and share it with others.
With everything in life, whether it’s death or love or just life in general, there is always a hidden message in every situation. Your purpose in life is not just to go to work, make money, find a partner and settle down. No. Forget that idea. There is more to your life than you think. You have a story and there is a very good reason you are here. The things that happen to you happen for a reason; and the reasons don’t always make sense, but someday it will. So don’t be ashamed of your story. It will inspire others!
So far you have survived 100 % of your worst days. What makes you think that you won’t get through the next phase of your life? Trust me, you are stronger than you think and your story is just as important as everyone else’s. Even if you are feeling hopeless now, just remember that even in the midst of pain, there is still hope!
“Hope structures your life in anticipation of the future and influences how you feel in the present.” This is an inspiring quote I once found and I thought that I should share it with you. Know your self worth. Don’t let anyone ever make you feel like you are below them. You are not below anyone. You are wonderful and uniquely made by God. When you start to stand up for yourself’ you will be able to move mountains, because once you take back your power you can achieve anything. No one can stop you!
Do not allow anyone to control you – even if you have so much “mess” to deal with and the world weighing down on your shoulders. Just get back up. Stand up for yourself and reach out to others who are going through the same situations as you. Together you can make a difference!
Go stand in front of a mirror right now and take a look at yourself: Ask yourself who you are. Be honest. Remove each emotional layer. If you don’t like what you see and you don’t know what to do with your life, then please remember: Your current situation is not your final destination!
You have the power to change your story right now by taking action. Don’t sit around and wait. Get up and be the change you want to see in the world. Now is a good time to find yourself and your purpose. Forget about the mess – you are not your past; you are your future. Stop crying over things that are no longer serving you and take your story, turn it into a positive message. You can make a difference no matter who you are.
Love and Light,
