footnotes on the path of life as a thriver,
i was a victim
i was a survivor
i chose to become a thriver!
i have experienced many things in this go round on earth!
both beautiful as well as the awful ugly bad shit!
ALL of my experiences have assisted in making me who i am this day,
ALL of my experiences helped shape me as a person.
ALL of my experiences have offered me a perspective of how it can be.
so each moment of each day,
i get t choose;
how to be
how to react or no react
the words to say or to be silent & still
once when i was a victim in pain about past happenings..
someone said to me, that it was part of what made me me,
at 1st i was offended... he continued further to say,
i was a good person, with a kind & loving heart, & what had
happened to me was all part of that... in that moment...
my soul took me by the hand & led me to a higher perspective...
& offered me a different view, & more clarity....
in that moment i traveled the path of life...
that journey took me from victim to thriver!!!
once when i was living in survivor mode, i was told my heart looked like a lovely shinning green crystal.... & i realized, i had hardened my heart to survive all the hurt & pain... i had blocked it off from feeling....
& in that moment i made a promise to never again harden my heart... my heart is wide open & flowing with love...
this i did for myself, because i saw & felt the difference.
in that moment i made the choice to release myself from just surviving only....realizing there was far more to life & living...
i made the choice to be all that i was meant to be...
Seeing & feeling in the unique way that is only mine....
i promised myself i would thrive in the best way i possibly could!!
my life experiences are part & parcel of my being...
we are all capable of rising above the hurt & pain,
true some days it will be more of a challenge..
some days it will be enough to feel the pain,
to feel the fear... i have learned by doing this i am able
to push thru to the other side, & there is another side believe me!!
when on the other side, i often looked back & thought to self...
ummm, what was i so afraid of? fear holds us back.
i made the choice to live differently!
we all make choices each & every day, every moment...
the path of life...
the path i follow is mostly spiritual,mostly creative,
close to nature, & one of love....this is my path, my choice.
others paths are uniquely their own as well....
doing/choosing a different route may be just what your soul
is requiring of you.... be still & listen...
sharing in love!
