The will to live- day 26
Make time for yourself to discover more of you and your triggers. Is what's triggering you out of your control? If so, I encourage you to trust that whatever it is, it's probably not that deep. If you step outside of the hurt you have found comfort in, you will be able to see that there is more space in healing than there is in pain. It is time that we sit in the driver seat of our spiritual journey. It’s time that we hold ourselves accountable for the rumination we have let rule our lives. I can attest, focusing on the things of the past takes away your ability to embrace the present and look forward to the future.
What I learned today is that sometimes things really aren’t as deep as we make them. If we never heal from our past we will project that hurt onto everything and every person that crosses our path. Personally, I am discovering that I have allowed things outside of me to regulate what is happening within. I am reminded, even as I write this, that I am the author of my own fate. The only vessel I can govern is my own and I have a choice to govern with love, understanding, peace, and strength. An Affirmation: I choose the energy I absorb. I govern the energy I emit. I am light. I replenish my light through deep breathing, prayer, and meditation. I practice mindfulness in my day to day life which enables me to be a more conscious and alert being. By taking time to take care of myself, I am of better service to others. God has made me resilient. I am not defined by the adversity that I have faced in this life; instead, I allow those experiences to transform me for the better. My past is a gift that has brought me to where I am right now and I am grateful.
