This song is everything!
Hey everyone! I have been a bad blogger these past few days and I apologize. Life has gotten in the way of my thought process and instead of feeling inspired and uplifted, I have been feeling disappointed and defeated. I have no one else to blame but myself because I am the one with the power to change my mindset and situation. The saying “Old habits die hard” is so true because no matter how much I would like to think I’ve changed, those old habits, insecurities and doubts come creeping back into my mind and leave me feeling like there is no way out of the situation. I know that in order to get to the next level in all aspects of my life, I have to get out of my own way.
I have a tendency of complaining about my situation(s) to my friends and in turn having them tell me things that aren’t always helpful or can be but my mind is open to really taking anything in. I always felt like if I held things in for too long, that I would explode and that’s one of the reasons why I started blogging in the first place. I wanted to let it all go in hopes that it would be therapeutic for me. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t…When it doesn’t work, I am back at square one. Those are the moments that I have to take a really good look at myself and see things for what they are instead of what I want them to be. I have to admit when things just won’t work out the way I planned and if I have no control over it(or the person in many cases) I need to let it go and do what feels right for me. If I do have control over the situation, I need to take the necessary steps to get to where I want to be in life. Nothing worth having comes easy and I am realizing that more now than ever.
I am thankful for everything that has happened in my life thus far to bring me to this point. I want to embrace all of the experiences coming my way and learn from everyone and everything I encounter. Most of all, the voice that I need to be listening to is not that of my friends, family or even my rolemodel Oprah…the voice within myself is the most powerful and will be the one to take me to where I need to be. The same goes for your inner voice so please don’t turn it down for all of the other “noise” in your life.
