No More Complacency

Complacency is the death of personal growth. Complacency is the death of  love. Complacency is the detriment of forward motion.

It does not do to go with what has been laid out in front of you just because it is what someone else wants for you, or tells you. It does not do to follow people blindly and not read between the lines. It does not do to let your decisions be made for you without your consent or consideration.

You have to care. You have to work. You have to try. You have to do for yourself. You are responsible. You are accountable for everything you do and everything you do not do.

The way your life is, the way the world is, and the way it works is a direct reflection of you and your choices. Each of us is a part of this world and we what do and don’t do, what we tolerate and do not tolerate creates the life that we live.

It is our duty, firstly to ourselves and then to those around us, to show up. We need to show up for ourselves and show up for others. It is time that we take our lives in to our own hands. Demand more of yourself. Push yourself further. Test yourself and your boundaries. Be willing to get to know yourself, your worth, and what you’re capable of. And encourage others to do the same.

We create our realities. Let us do so with love, care, kindness, goodness, respect, and consideration for all. When we realize our own worth and potential, and live it, we make life better. Do it. Fight for yourself. Fight for others.

Do not be complacent. Decide. Make your own choices. Do for yourself and do for others. This is your time and your chance to make the most of all you’ve been given.

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.
