When things get rough as they always will and you find yourself somewhat blue, what you need to do is reach inside of you to embrace your courage.

We all have courage, we have all used it in some form thought the years of our lives. You can’t tell me you don’t have courage, it comes in many form such as….

Courage is embracing the pain you are feeling and walking with it until it disappears

Courage will push you past your boundaries to the beyond of what you know

Courage will guide you to do the right thing

Courage helps you find your voice

Courage is what gives you the experiences of a heart fully opened. And if it breaks, courage will be the thing that mends it and makes it stronger.

Courage is what saves us and transforms us

So whatever you need to do and fear you cannot move forward, hold that idea, concept, or dream in your mind, then add the essence of courage inside of you, then a step of two will appear in front of you.


Paddling against the current

What I thought I could do, I really couldn’t do.

Thought I had shoulders that supported others.
Thought if I pushed harder, I’d become stronger.
If I tried more, I’d be more successful.
If I did better, things would be better.

Oh, how blind I was.

I was in rough waters trying to paddle against the current, hitting ever rock.

I eventually fell out, whilst wondering in my state if I was going to drown a fellow paddler passed by, fortunately he was gifted at seeing what in my blinded state I couldn’t

He threw me a lifeline with his advice, that my battling was caused by my decisions and beliefs.

He showed me
That I couldn’t take the weight of others
If I pushed harder, I would burn my flame out
It I tried harder, the walls would just get stronger.
If I did better, I wouldn’t be the perfect me as I was now.

I needed to protect and nourish myself

I just needed to rest
And simplify
To be still
Say No,
indulge my hearts desires
And create life easier

The fellow traveller said all I required to do was to SHINE, that was the only important thing to do, then everything else would just fall into place.

So moral of my story is.. if you are mentally or emotionally hurting/pushing yourself, you’re light starts to dim out (illness then strikes) the most important thing you must remember is that everything depends on you understanding that self nurturing doesn’t take second place.

So be smart and make life easier, flow instead of swimming against the current.
