Turning over the leaf

IMG_0125

Life throws us many curve balls. Some are minor, some are major, and some are just unexpected pit stops in our journey to success. This year I was thrown many curve balls. I got distracted, I got depressed, I even got down on my luck. I start picking up bad habits and falling back into old ways. Throughout it all. God still kept his hand covered over me, even when I didn’t deserve it. I can honestly say that no matter my downfalls, I still made it through, and I exceeded past every obstacle. Most times in life when we know we are not living right, and we are fully aware of it we tend to live in guilt, wondering when the next boulder will fall on top of our heads, but as I’ve grown I’ve learned that we can not think that way. We are humans, humans that have the ability to create our own realities. Due to our trial and errors we are given yet another chance to make amends, and be better than before. We have to numb ourselves of all the pain and negativity, and just push pass it all to reach our goals. If you want to live better, than do better. Once again we have the ability to change our mindsets from “I can’t”, to “Yes the fuck I can”. We have to stop being afraid of defeat and claim our victory. I’m also learning that there has never been a better time to turn over the leaf in our lives, and try something new. It’s time to be innovative, think differently, live differently. Odds are, most people who feel unhappy, simply do nothing real to change their state of emotion. If we tried just a little harder to appeal to our spirits instead of our flesh, we would really see the difference in our well being. So turning over the leaf? What’s that mean? We’ve tried the New Years resolutions, and that’s normally thrown out the window by the end of the week. Let’s try something more, how about setting the tone each week, day, month with a goal that will keep you aligned on your plan of living righteously. Rather its’ monthly, weekly, bi-weekly, start by acknowledging things in your life that are not suiting you and pin-point it to change it. If we never face our skeletons we will always live in fear, but if we aim to finally fight against these transgressions, we will prevail and conquer the enemy once and for all. Sometimes you just really have to step out of faith, and trust God and his mission to lead your life, but you have to be willing to change habits and make living right a priority. It’s always easier said than done, but you only have one life to live, and so many chances. Let’s work together to make the best of this journey, I invite all who read this to walk with me as I practice healthier living spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. It’s just time to be great, and God is waiting for you to walk into your blessings. If there is anything that is bothering you, haunting you, and just simply tugging you do away with it and let God wipe away all your tears. It’s time to be GREAT, believe in yourself and all that you are capable of, and God will handle the rest.

Letting Go

Everyone goes through phases in their life where they are forced to let go. Rather it’s a relationship, addiction, or series of bad habits, everyone battles something to the point of no return. No one said it would be easy, many of us relapse everyday from something we know is no longer serving us. The question is how do we move on? How do we walk forward without looking back. Even I have suffered from issues of letting things go, such as people I’ve grown to love or attach to. Emotional connections are one of the hardest obstacles to move past from. I realize that letting go is definitely for the better. I’m happy and healthier this way no matter how much I try to cling on to the past. So I’ve come to the realization that my past is haunting me, it wants me to continue to feed off of its energy. I can no longer go back and forth with this evil. So what do I do to completely remove this baggage from my life? It’s causing me frustration, sadness, and a bundle of other emotions. I say the first step of letting go is being upfront with yourself. Physically confess to yourself your problem. Next map out how you can gain power to defeat this issue. Many people underestimate their ability of willpower, already hindering themselves from conquering their fears. Another step is realizing that letting go does not happen overnight. It is something that takes hard work and dedication to defeat. You have to stay committed and consistent with fighting your demon. Whenever your issue tries to attack you smite it down. Never give your issue satisfactory to creep back into your life, sometimes you may get blindsided and give in but once you realize that it isn’t right, get back up again and fight the fight until your demon realizes your are stronger, or at least gaining more strength. I speak in the term of using the “demon” because every obstacle we face in life starts inside, it is an internal influence of some sort. A demon is an entity that aims to destroy you, bring upon negativity energy. So you have to be aware when something does not have good intentions. It took me almost three years to realize that, but everyday I fight harder and harder to let go of things that do not have my best interest. We have to be brave enough to recognize that demon and start attacking it, no matter what form it comes in. Love conquers fear, so you have to love yourself enough to remove toxins from your life. Letting go is a process, each and everyday is a step closer to shedding your old self. Never said it would be easy but with enough confidence and drive you will be able to conquer every obstacle that wants to defeat you, but in this case you’ll be defeating your obstacles.
