Always speak beauty into everyone you come across, especially yourself. Truly this is one of the most important things you can do in your lifetime. No matter what someone looks like or is acting like; see the beauty in them.
One thing I have discovered and is a fact, none of us are perfect...we all live in glass houses. So why would we throw stones? If we throw a stone at someone, they will throw stones back; where would we live then? It truly is something to think about.
The past few days my energy has been low. I am not sure why...I am feeling very somber and quiet. This summer has been filled with a lot of emotion, work and patience. It has been the kind of summer that was jam packed with a lot of adult stuff to deal with and it went by so quickly. When I look back, I realized how much it took out of me to be the best version of myself every day. I was being the change I want to see in this world, and it truly does take work. Sometimes, you need to recharge to continue to be that person.
Everyday this summer I was being my true self; I have been home about two weeks and it is truly hard to keep who I was being alive. Sometimes we live in a life that is not perfect. Sometimes we live with people who are not totally on the same page but they are trying. Sometimes who we are truly being scares the people around us, and they want us to go backwards instead of forwards. Sometimes it is hard for the people around us to deal with change in us or in themselves....Here it is...You have to keep being the true self you are. It is as simple as that, however to do that takes some work. It's the kind of work that you can do and you love doing.
One of the biggest things that you have to do is to speak love and kindness into the people around you. Sometimes you will find it hard, but when you realize what is truly happening you will see the love and kindness in them, they are just scared. They are scared of the not knowing what is happening. They are scared of the changes that are being made and they are scared of themselves wondering if they are not able to change.
I was away from my family for over a month and a lot has happened. Who I was being while I was away was amazing, I didn't even recognize my own self, but I knew I loved her. When I came home little by little I have been chiseled at to have the old me home, and I have been fighting that. I have fallen in that trap....but now I have recognized it and I am getting the new me to step forward. We have to keep moving forward and creating a new...if we don't we will stay stuck. We can't stay stuck for someone else...allow them their time but keep discovering your full potential. You have so much to offer the world you cannot be stifled!
Until we meet again my friends...
