Dear friends and readers,
I hope 2017 has treated you well so far. This is my first post of the year as I didn’t want to post just for the sake of posting.
I am not a professional writer, I didn’t take any courses or attend any seminars to learn how to write, but I pour my heart and soul into every post, and so I hope you will find my words meaningful, and that somehow they help you embrace anything that may be causing you emotional pain right now.
Today I would like to share with you something I read by a new up and coming motivational speaker and bestselling book author, Kyle Gray:
“You are being presented with a choice: evolve or remain. If you choose to remain unchanged, you will be presented with the same challenges, the same routine, the same storms, the same situations, until you learn from them, until you love yourself enough to say “no more”, until you choose change. If you choose to evolve, you will connect with the strength within you, you will explore what lies outside the comfort zone, you will awaken to love, you will become, you will be. You have everything you need. Choose to evolve. Choose love.”
How often have you found yourself living the same scenarios, faced with the same problems, experiencing the same suffering and asking yourself why?? It’s like trying to find your path, and always coming up against a brick wall. You think you have it all figured out, and yet you can’t move from the same place you are feeling stuck. I have experienced this many times in my life, and it eventually made me see that 99.9% of the time, the problem is not the problem, the problem is my attitude about the problem.
We all need to realize, that we just don’t know. There is so much we need to learn in order to live carefree, happy and fulfilled lives, and the truth is we never stop learning. Opinions and beliefs we have formed, whether inherited from our parents views, or through our own experiences of life, can sometimes block us from reaching our full potential and having the kind of life we long for. Every time we find ourselves faced with the same brick wall, the Universe is actually granting us the opportunity to learn and grow. It takes an incredible amount of clarity, presence, intuition and strength to recognize this opportunity when it comes and actually seize it. It is not usually the easy route, it is often disguised as hard work and requires moving past your comfort zone. But once you find that strength within, you will be met with unconditional love, true beauty that transcends the physical realm, and unlimited abundance. All of this exists for each and every one of us, but we must open our minds and our hearts, stop blocking ourselves and just allow.
ALWAYS, choose love.
