As we move into our weekend I want to pass on some motivational words to set you free.
For the person who has learned to let go and let be,
nothing can ever get in their way again.
– Meister Eckhart
It is an authentic way of living | To be true to yourself and keep close what matters most. There are things we cannot force. Things we cannot change. While you can influence others with the beauty of spirit, you cannot control how they will respond to you. You have the power to choose how you react to situations and the words and actions of others. As an adult you gain the right to be assertive and in control of your emotions and your life.
Through crawling out of the darkest depths of my life I have learned you have to be your biggest cheerleader. To be okay when it is ‘just you’. Even if you are alone in your views you do not have to feel alone or less of self. Be proud of who you are and the life you live.
I used to let people make me feel like I was worthless. That I was not worth happiness or beauty in the world. They would say I was not good enough. They would tell me I did things wrong or that my work did not live up to their expectations. I used to worry so much about the things I heard behind my back until finally it all broke me. In time and through meditation, prayer, and release of my own thoughts I was able to mend my spirit and become stronger than ever before. To learn to let go and just let be. Those that bullied and said hateful words may never change their motives by never healing what is broken in their own lives from their past. However, I stand here to say that I have never felt as happy or as content in life than I do now because of these four words. When you know what matters most in your life and you find happiness from it, nothing else really matters. Let your love and spirit shine for this life of ours is far too short. When the end is inevitable does any of the stresses put on by others really matter? Let go and let be.
May the words encourage you and change your perspective on life.
The challenge | This weekend I challenge you to let go of whatever has been holding you down. Breath out that next breath as an adult ready to live your life in the power of confidence.
