On one of the lowest days of my life, when I was surrounded by used tissues and all of the reasons for why my life didn’t have a purpose, I experienced something that has stopped me from falling that low again.
I realized that I was the one chaining myself to those days of hopelessness.
No one was there telling me, there’s no hope for you.
I was the one coming up with all of the excuses to continue being Miserable with a capital M.
That realization helped me understand that you have so much power to change your life story.
Reclaim your power
There’s a sense of powerlessness that exists when you feel trapped by your current reality.
Even though there are always going to be things that are out of your control, there are so many things that are in your hands.
Start by making the next best choice that takes you closer to the life that you truly want to live.
To live with more joy, to live with more hope, start by reclaiming your power. You have the power to choose, to act, to have a say.
There will always be something that will stop you from experiencing self growth: your ego, your failures, your mistakes, your past, your current circumstances.
When you don’t choose growth, you stay stuck, lessons repeat themselves, you experience frustration or unhappiness.
When you choose growth, you see situations through a new perspective. You gain wisdom. You gain freedom. You let go of fear, of limiting beliefs. You return back to a place of love that is without judgement, a place of compassion.
When a problem appears out of nowhere, when there are changes to adapt to, when nothing is working out, try again.
If you feel yourself coming up with excuses, remember the following quote:
The time is always right to do what is right.Martin Luther King Jr.
Now is always the perfect time to try again, to come up with a solution, to pick yourself up, to adapt, to change.
When you believe in your power, when you keep wisdom in mind, and when you give yourself the opportunity to try again, life lightens and brightens. You become the key to your hope.
