Built for This…

DSC_8402

At times it feels easier to deny your reality than to accept your fate.  As long as you act as if  your troubles are indistinguishable, then your triumph will feel invisible.

Incredibly, in your unchanged effort to protect your feelings, you can chip away at your Presence.

Yes, days can be difficult and some night can even seem unbearable, but you must find the determination to be persistent in finding peace through your challenges.  You must remind yourself of your troubles and accomplishments, for both are valuable teachers.  You must learn to be your own motivator…. This is not due to the lack of support you may think you don’t have; instead, it ‘s in the reassurance that you were built for a world like this world. Your battles existed before you had anticipated them, You were built for failure to feats.

The Beauty in Choosing…

 The Beauty in Choosing….

Beautiful Art that fills our City Streets…

 The beauty of our days is the many opportunities we get to choose. Every day YOU get the choice to see the glass as half empty OR half full. I whole-heartedly say, choose to see yourself half way closer to your goals than farther than you are imagining. Remaining focus and ambitious isn’t a seasonal desire. You have to be eager to challenge your daily ambiguity and remain positive during the most difficult of times. You spirit cannot be broken without your consent. Your armor will become dented by the spells of life, but your spirit will not be broken….

I have the ability, no matter the circumstance in  my life, to fill my glass at least half way. I am never empty …

Never Empty …

The Same Difference….

Imperfect

I’m perfect: imperfect   … same difference. DSC_7346

The journey in life is to live a full and meaningful life, not to be critical of ourselves and get distracted by what we lack, instead focus on who you are.

I’ve learned to strive toward becoming a better me and not idealizing what it means to be perfect. Taking the time out to acknowledge all your strengths and accomplishments, is one way of changing your imperfections to motivation.  Its a simple exercise but i urge you to try it.

All the things you will come up with will surprise you. And even more rewarding will be the feeling you of relinquishment.  You’ll begin to realize that those same erroneous thoughts you have of yourself of being imperfect, has strengthened you throughout time.

For instance, You may think you are not on target for a certain goal in your life (imperfect). But when you think about how driven you have been in accomplishing that steps towards this goal, you see your own courage (I’m Perfect).

With a simple inflection, change in punctuation, or a change to your internal filter, you see things in a different light.

How do you choose to see yourself…..

” Opening to the totality of your being is like saying to yourself, ‘I may not be perfect, but i’m okay with the way I am.’ ” – Richard Carlson, PHD  from Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… and its all Small Stuff.

Mosaic: Our made up Life….

Mosaic Blend

Its hard for me to blend in at times. I am not driven to look, sound, or feel like anyone else but myself. Spending your days trying to fit into a mold which someone else created for you, will make life appear more difficult and unfullfilled than it was meant to BE.

Our younger self(s) was always unsure about who we are and what we will surmount to, but what we tend to forget are all those moments that make up joy of  LIFE.  It is important to be grateful and inspired by every moment in your life. When you do this, you will realize how much the goodtimes out way the bad, and how lucky you are to have such a wonderfullly made up life.

Dont try to blend. Dont try to be, look or sound like any one else but yourself; for we are all individually and wonderfully created.
