I’ve been down and out and angry at the world because I put you on top.
I’ve been up so high on top of cloud nine that you couldn’t even pull me down as there was no strings attached.
If there’s one thing I’ve learnt on this journey, is that the power is in your hands.
Hold on to it and don’t give it to anyone else.
No one can make you feel small without your permission.
Don’t rely on others or outside circumstances to make you happy, there is no Superman or Peter Pan to come and rescue you.
Because it is all in you to turn your life around, as long as you have a beating heart and air in your lungs there is absolutely no reason for the pity party!
So get up, raise your standards and make sure you value yourself.
Have you ever thought how the only thing that ever stands in your way to accomplish anything is (almost) always fear?
Fear of the unknown, fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of disappointing.
But in the end you can never know for sure until you do the act! It’s always your thoughts that hold you back or someone saying you shouldn’t because of this or that happened to them or someone else or you have you be “realistic”.
When did we become scared to try?
From the moment we were born! We couldn’t walk, yet we tried and fell and tried again until our own two feet held us up. So what happened along the way? The need to get everyone’s approval or to not be judged? Or when you’re let down and you pretend it didn’t affect you or hurt, so you make a joke of it and laugh it off.
No. I am disappointed and it’s hurt but I won’t let it affect me.
Don’t ask me to not trust the next person to walk into my life because of the past. See the beauty in each and every one us, in you! Because we are a miracle and we are marvellous. Every second, you are fighting to be alive! Each cell in your body is working hard, you’re not mediocre. Maybe you aren’t capable of breathing without the help of a machine, or you’re paralysed from the neck down or the doctors say you have 2 months to live… Yet you are still here? These are all predictions and limitations brought forward by their/our thoughts.
How about what you can do…?
Can you believe at one point on this earth, there was no planes but then someone had an idea to fly!? Bless them. And it developed and now we have planes! Imagine that!?
I guess what I’m trying to say is: don’t let your doubts shadow your light. Be brave, even if it’s getting out of bed, it’s the first step and it’s enough. You DO matter and so does everyone else so be kind and believe in yourself.
So what if you do fail? But what if you succeed!
