Save me from the harsh reality. The reality that there is no break from your thoughts. There is no break from your feelings and there is definitely no break from your heart.
So from here I will take the opportunity to build. I will take back the lock box from which I placed my brain and become aware. Life is meant to be experienced and with a healthy mind, life will begin to bloom beautifully. Always learning, deciphering, rewiring and recharging. I will learn something new every day. Have inspiring conversations. Write down my thoughts. Think, love and breathe positivity. I will take great care of my thoughts, feelings and knowledge.
Next, I will courageously pick up my heart and take ownership of it. I will choose to take the necessary steps to live vivaciously. Each day I will learn to love, live and let go. Compliment a stranger. Give quality time to those I love the most. I will let go of people, of things, of situations that do not motivate and inspire my heart. And most importantly, I will use my mind and heart in unison. Although some may believe that this is a recipe for disaster, but compassion takes practice. Compassion is allowing your mind and heart to beat together.
Society is obsessed with consumerism, with status, with each other. Beauty does not come out of a bottle that can be bought for a hundred dollars. It is not a designer bag or your followers on social media. Beauty is true, wholesome self. I find beauty in the people who are completely aware of themselves. Who are constantly looking to expand their knowledge, experience new things and who understand their personal balance. It shouldn’t be rare to meet people who work on themselves more than they work at their job, but unfortunately it is. So each day, I will ask myself, “How do you choose to live today?” Because from here, I will no longer need a place to rest my head. I will choose to live courageously within myself.
