Everyday is your day. Own it with productivity for success.

Traveling down unknown pathways and on the edge of adversity.
In my silence of pain I’ve created this masterpiece.
In only so many ways can this be explained.
Until some time again in a near future.
I will make sure you comprehend the rest.
Into the walls of my chest.
I cave with each second that passes.
Turning upside down empty glasses.
My mind portrays that it’s all about action.

To new beginnings that never happened.

Love Admires You

Romantically speaking, love is always admiring you. In all of your essential states it sees your heart. These are the misunderstandings that plague the best of us. Love has no image to uphold or standards that make them ungrateful. It is patiently waiting for us to notice it and take advantage of the benefits. Often times it comes with confusion, mislead illusions developed from ignorance and mis-education. Common misrepresentations by our peers and influences.

But what do I know? I’ve only noticed the negative effects from it. The downfalls of what once was. All my love has truly sustained its strength with the injuries I have inflicted upon it. So today it still stands. True love will never fall, fail, plummet, or be destroyed by even the toughest adversities.

Brainwashed

As I sit here and think, staring in the mirror, I focus on my physical experience for a second. I ask myself, “What is beauty to us? What is religion to us? What is anything to us? How are we as children with premature minds creating our own perceptions that haven’t already been placed in our minds from our environments?”. Something else that’s floating in my mind, how many of us are in situations where we “think” someone feels a certain way about us without any valid facts? What you THINK in your mind could be all false beliefs. It’s funny how our brains are “pre”wired. Hard drives filled up with preconceived notions and negative beliefs. But when you keep a mind of an optimist, thoughts sometimes fall in their place correctly.

It seems to be our beliefs that make us the unique individuals we are. No two people are the same because of distinct looks and an individually crafted life setup.

Food for Thought.
Clear your mind of clutter.

Please Believe in Yourself

Hello Everyone!

believe

These last few months of my life have been extremely interesting all while finding my way to my true self. I know I always put a great amount of emphasis on believing in yourself, chasing your dreams, and never letting anyone tell you what you can or can’t do in this life. This is YOUR life. Each person, past and present, have had or is getting the chance to create themselves and their life for what they want it to be. You are entitled to that same free will. Unhappiness can be changed only if you have the motivation to make the change. No one can live life for you even though at times we wish that could be possible. Actually, it is possible, but that is when you become a slave to your reality without freedom within your heart.

Just several months ago, I was lost, broken, confused, and off balanced about which direction I should go in life. And when I finally released a bit of control and gave my worries and heartache over to God, my life is in alignment. My purpose, who knows what their purpose truly is until their last days. I believe in myself beyond measures and more than I thought I ever could. I’ve had the support of my family, close friends, and even strangers who couldn’t even begin to know me but none of that ever mattered because I didn’t believe in myself enough. Low self esteem and a slim amount of confidence can’t get you very far in life. You have to wake up each day, look into the mirror, look into your eyes and tell yourself that you are important, you matter, your life matters, and what you have to say is important.

believe in yourself

Dreams matter. At times I feel like some of my dreams are too far fetched, like life can’t really be how I want it. But why can’t it? Is it not something I deserve if I work hard enough for it? Claiming your life as your own is the very first step to happiness.

-Make a list of goals for yourself
Short term and long term, trust me I know how hard this could be but once you find your direction it all falls into place

-Allow only supportive and positive people within your circle
If it’s someone you want to keep around, then speak to them about any issues, if they continue to taint your life, then place a space between the two

-Create some positive affirmations and say them to yourself in the mirror (THIS REALLY WORKS!)

-Care about your looks
They matter

-Establish your dream and your true purpose
Since I’m not going to go to heavy into this topic, there are some great articles online about discovering what you really want to do with your life

MOST IMPORTANTLY:
-LOVE YOURSELF !!
Know that you are unique and there is no one else like you and the package that you have to offer. Everyone has their own light. You choose whether to let it shine or not.

Freedom in My Tongue

There’s freedom in my tongue
Like the chains have been broken within my mind
And simplicity has been banished
Held hostage with broken bones and bandaged

I pay no attention to the irrelevant fears that live within my heart
With each heartbreak I lose more of myself
Placing old habits on the shelf
Right beside my lonely memories of pain

My poetry is my escape
When confusion has made itself my best friend
I retreat to the pages to be saved again
Life has saved me

Note To Self

1. I love you.
2. You are beautiful.
3. You are special.
4. Smile.
5. Actually, I’m in love with you. ❤
6. Believe.
7. You are talented.
8. It's ok to heal and be ok.
9. It's ok to NOT be ok.
10. Life will only fall into place when YOU let it.

You must fall in love with yourself before the love can come or be for anyone else.

Freedom>Inner Peace>Empowerment

Empowerment feels great!

But do you want to know something? Only YOU can do that for yourself.
Companionship is very important in life and after being in a relationship for so long we lose ourselves. We become one and forget who we are as individuals. I do think it’s important to take a step back and fix issues such as those before you try to move forward with any relationship.

We forget, well I know I forgot, the only person responsible for your happiness is YOU. No matter how much someone else brightens your day, it ultimately depends on you to keep your smile thriving even during the hardest of times. It takes great work to gain your responsibility back after you’ve had a crutch for so long.

We become slaves to our surroundings, sometimes to ourselves and our thoughts, and that jeopardizes our happiness. True freedom comes from within. There is no way we can be slaves to our environment and the aggravations of our past if we have obtained inner peace.

Memories Are Our Building Blocks

holstee-poster_large

We must remain accountable for our actions and choices that lead us to the difficult and complicated lives we now live. Happier people make happier choices. Not by living in the absence of fear and stress, but taking those worries and looking beyond the surface. They are able to see beyond issues that arise in their lives. Taking life’s disappointments and then turning them into lessons. Only tiny pieces of our lives that rebuild faith and make us stronger. Life happens. People change for no reason and things happen completely beyond our control. We use struggles as building blocks for our foundation. How you interpret your thoughts and create your memories, they become the concrete to which you lay that foundation on.
