How You Feeling? I’m Fine

Question: How are you feeling?

Thoughts: I believe in life there are several rock bottoms; a point in your life where you’re so low that as cliché as it sounds the only choice you have is to go up cause you can’t get any lower. However, what happens when your rock bottom is a death of loved one. What happens when you weren’t prepared for that death and it drags you to the lowest point of your life. How do you resolve your feelings when you can’t change the situation. How do you go on & continue to be happy when you have this guilt, that the person whose always there for you, always happy for you isn’t there.

How can you be happy when that person’s life is at a permanent stand still. Even though it’s irrational thinking & you shouldn’t think this way & that person would want you to be happy; how can you enjoy any type of success or plan for your future when the person who’s always by your side is gone. What do you do when your cheering squad no longer cheers. How do you get rid of the sadness and guilt that you’re still alive. How can you be truly and genuinely happy & smile without bursting into tears when you think of that person.

Answer: I’m Fine

Thoughts: I keep it all inside because I rather the pain destroys me than everyone else.

I Know Your Life Ain’t EZ

I know your heart is hurting. I know you feel like nobody understands. I know you feel alone in your struggle. I know you’re tired of pretending like everything is OK. You tell people you’re fine, but on the inside you’re screaming out for help. The thought of tomorrow doesn’t bring you joy because you feel your best days are in your past. Fear drives your thoughts, not faith. The fear life won’t get better. The fear loneliness will never leave your presence. The fear your prayers aren’t received. DON’T LET FEAR TAKE YOUR LIFE.

I know it sounds cliche but be thankful for your struggle because it’s making you stronger than ever. Your perseverance in times of despair shows others they can make it. I know you can’t see it right now, but you provide HOPE for so many lives. Someone is always watching you be it your child, niece nephew sister or friend someone is silently looking to you for guidance, strength, and hope that things will get better. You are the LIGHT in someone’s life. You are the reason someone woke up today. YOU ARE IMPORTANT! Do not let life struggles blind you to this fact.

Therapy Session

Your thoughts hold the key to the way your life unfolds! What you find yourself constantly thinking about is what will consume your time. Pay attention to the thoughts that are constantly stuck on repeat in your mind and write them down. The things you are noticing have messages for you and only you know what they are. Writing your thoughts down helps to get your mind unstuck and focused on what the issue is. Writing down your thoughts will help you get in touch with what you want to let go of and what you want to experience more of in your life.

A CONFIDENT WOMAN

10805783_615872885204999_5550581642299178509_n

I am STRONG because of the struggles I’ve endured; I know my weaknesses but they do not stop me from living…

I am SMART I’ve learned from my mistakes, I do not repeat them but I am aware I will make new ones…

I have SELF WORTH because I believe in myself, I know I’m a good person and deserve the best even when others think otherwise…

I am HAPPIER because I have endured sadness & heartache & accept it as a part of life…

I am BEAUTIFUL I don’t need anyone to tell me because my beauty is based on my perception not society…

I love MYSELF I will never be alone because I’ll always be there for me; I’ve seen my good & bad sides & accept that nobody’s perfect..

When in Doubt

10411844_615858745206413_2153656953406403897_n

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, thinking of all the battles you have to fight, and all the fears you have to overcome…

Reach inside yourself, pull out your inner warrior, face the world and fight for the life you want.

You were not given a good or bad life you were just given life, its up to you to make it good or bad.

Just Breath

If only for today I ask that you release all doubts about yourself, the mistakes of the past and the fear of the future…in this minute this second just breathe and enjoy the moment…revel in the fact that you may not be healthy but you are alive you may not be rich but you continually provide for yourself & family…realize you may not have everything you want but you have been blessed with everything that you need.

Let Go of What You Cannot Change

You cannot change people. If you base your peace and level of happiness on the attitudes and actions of others, you will find yourself consistently disappointed. Do not allow the things you cannot change (people) to become a source of unnecessary frustration and negativity in your life. You can speak up for yourself and not allow the behavior to be directed towards you or around you but you cannot stop the person’s behavior. Definitely set clear & specific boundaries with the people in your life. For example, I don’t permit “drama” in my life. I do not allow people and situations that are negative into my life. I just don’t have time for them, shoot I have plenty of my own. When I am being pulled into such situations I make it clear that certain conversations, situations and actions are not acceptable to me and I won’t take part. Set what boundaries you need to in order to keep peace and serenity in your life.

Change is the Only Constant

Some people don’t like change, they view it as an end to something good instead of what it really is, an opportunity or pathway to something better.
Remember the one constant in life is everything changes so why not work with the changes to achieve your personal, professional, or financial goals….PROGRESS IS IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT CHANGE

This Is How I’m Living

How do I stay positive when life gets ‘real’? Believe me, it wasn’t and isn’t always easy but this is how I’m living; not in any specific order:

I know I need God in my Life.

I realize I’m a work in progress every day I change for the better.

I stopped thinking everything was a direct attack against me.

I stopped worrying about what the world thought about me and started thinking about how I felt about me.

I understand you can’t please everyone but you can please yourself all the time.

I stopped being so judgmental towards myself…Only God can judge me.

I changed the circle of people I chose to be around.

I allowed myself to be held accountable AND take responsibility for MY actions.

I stopped complaining and started doing something to change my situation.

I realized I have a greater purpose in life and negativity prevents me from reaching it.

I chose to learn and grow from my past instead staying stuck in it.

I have love for SELF so others will know how to love me.

I feel the most positive when I’ve shared a shared some knowledge, helped or inspired someone.

These were and are the steps I took and continue to take to strive to be a better me. I invest in myself daily. Being positive is a choice. Life is about choices, not blame. We all have the choice to think, speak, act & live in a positive manner. I make a conscious choice to stay away from negativity. ©
