Soul Journey

A personal note.

The personal journey is a messy roller coaster that is ever changing. Its hard and it’s crazy, and it can be overwhelming. At the same time, that is also what makes the growth so worth it. That feeling of knowing what you came through, what you survived, and what you overcame to get where you are. That is a beautiful feeling. I’m trying to remember that.

Growth is a gift and so is everything that comes with it. I enjoy the highs and am so grateful for the beauty that is Life in all its infinite, wondrous glory. I am just as grateful for the lows. They aren’t fun while you’re there but they really do so much for us in helping to make this life what it is. That sense of fulfillment through self-care and self-love is truly indescribable. And even more potent when you realize that it was you who made it through. You had help from great guides, teachers, and influences along the way, but it was you who did the work and came out victorious.

I’m going through a phase of self-discovery and the Universe is testing me to see what I’m  really made of. Boy do I have some work to do. But all I can think right now is to be grateful. When you see life that way it really does help and make whatever situation you’re in better. Being in a constant state of gratefulness brings forth the concrete strength that lies within you. You have to work at it and it is a huge trail, but it is vital not to give in.

It is also imperative to make sure, especially this day in time when there is so much out there to absorb, to have positive, kind, goodhearted, humble guides, teachers, and inspirations to look up to and learn from. They are key to your journey. We are in full control of what we give attention to and the energy that we absorb through social media (a great perk!). Use that wisely. You don’t have to absorb bad energy and negativity. It’s always going to be there but you NEVER have to give power to it.

Stay focused on you and your journey. Do everything you can to stay within yourself and not get caught up with things that stifle, and hinder you. Feel what you feel, let whatever comes come, and let go of whatever needs to be released. We all have the innate senses to know what we need and don’t need. Be smart and work smart, not hard. Grind but do not wear yourself out. And whenever you find yourself out of alignment, acknowledge it and come back to your core.

The Source lies within you. Your Source is in your core, it is your core. Remember. Come back to your core, your center. There you will find all you need. In your core lies all the answers. In your core lies your connection to all, to everything within and outside of you. That connection is Life. That is who and what you truly are. You are the Sun, the Moon, the Stars. You are a Milky Way, a Galaxy, the Universe. Your body is temporary but You are Infinite. You everything, everywhere, and everlasting.  Remember. Love. Love yourself, love others, enjoy the journey.

“I’ll fight for my future long before I hope for it.” – Madison Stewart

Take your life into your own hands. Do for yourself. Make a way or create a way if you can’t find one. You will never have what you don’t work for. It is work living. But never forget that it’s all worth it. You create the life you want. You are who you decide to be. You go where you choose to go. The power of controlling your path lies within you. Utilize it. While you wait and hope for what you want you’re letting others have control of you. Don’t give it to them. You have to be active in living your life and doing and being as you wish. When it comes to people and the way they treat you, only what you allow will happen. What you accept will determine your reality. Fight for your right to be here and shine. You deserve to be here, use your voice, give your best, be your best, and to have the best.

“Do you. Be You. For You.”

How I Really Feel

Author’s Note: This is a long word vomit. It goes by my thought process so there really isn’t any type of flow. But yeah. Enjoy!

I do not wish to be remembered. I want the way I live my life to be remembered and continued. A life full of love and happiness. My “life is my message”.

I want to make people feel good about themselves and I want the people that I surround myself with to do the same for me. Life has so many incredible facets. Some good, some bad. It can be so sickening to think about all the bad things in the world. Hell is not a place beneath our feet, but it is all around us in the evil that exists. The great thing, despite that fact, is that Heaven is here too. All around us. The Earth is part of Heaven, I mean just look out of your window at all the magnificence around you, wherever you are in the world. Beauty surrounds us. Heaven is a baby’s smile, a toddler’s laugh, in that older couple walking hand in hand toward the end of the street, in my sister and I laughing and being goofy together, in my parents sharing a loving kiss on a daily basis going their separate ways to work, in the kindness of a stranger that suddenly decides to be a blessing to the stranger standing behind them in the grocery store by paying for their few items, in a random person smiling and waving at you from across the street.

The good in this life far outweighs the bad. I think about all the love that people have, for each other, for their passion’s, for the Earth, for animals, ect. It’s all so wonderful and amazingly powerful. Life is just plain beautiful. Beautiful in the fact that we struggle, each and every day, we fail, we fall short, and yet, we endure. We live on. We fight to live another day. We live to fight another day. We fight to try again tomorrow. Yes, in time we may be forgotten, but our lives are not in vain. Whether you know it or not, there is someone that cares about you, about your life, about your happiness. People may not believe that, but I can personally say that it is true. It is true because I care. Everyone deserves a wonderful, happy life full of love and enjoying every beautiful moment. I genuinely want that for every person living. There’s no possible way for me to be able to physically help everyone on the planet that needs it, but if I can let the world know through writing that there is at least one person in the world that does care about them; I want to do what I can so that they know. I want them to know they are loved.

I believe that imperfection is perfection. I believe that because in our being imperfect, it makes us who we are. And we are beautiful in all our individuality. You are who you are. There is no other person like you in the world. You are unique, special, talented, smart, amazing, wonderful, everything a good person can be. If someone can’t see that in you, that’s their problem, not yours.

Life is about Love, Experience, Happiness, and truly Living. Some of us may not be alive that long to be able to truly live and enjoy these things, but that is just one of the many things that is beyond us. I feel that is something we must all realize because whether we accept it or not, it is true. There are things in this life that are beyond us and just not meant for us to understand. We need not understand everything, we just need to live and let live, love and let love, and just be happy.

I hope that we move on from this destructive path that many people are heading down and come together. It is possible and I pray that we can begin to move to a level of oneness that humanity has never known before. I’m not saying every human being will be all happy-go-lucky, gung-ho, everything will be perfect with unicorns pooping rainbows and burping skittles, that will never happen. But I do believe that many of us, if not the majority of us, can unite and stand in harmony, peace, happiness, and love. This can happen. I don’t think it will happen in my lifetime, but I hope it will happen eventually. We can start paving the road to that beautiful place. We can start by beginning to love and respect ourselves, then love and respect others. By harboring good, positive vibes and energy and spreading those things plus love, happiness, kindness, goodness, being loyal, being trustworthy, and being honest, we can get there. Struggle is needed to progress, learn, and become better, so that is always to be expected. We just need to stop taking life so seriously, enjoy what we have, and let go of all this petty crap, negativity, and hate. Life will be better for us now and for the generations to come.
