My life has been filtered…
In different ways than I could ever fathom.
My thoughts have been altered… because I only believe that I kid myself.
My hopes have been shattered…
I don’t think I fit in! I don’t believe I could be more!
They say success has many friends, but if I hath none, has it made me quite unsuccessful?
I see myself in the mirror with a thousand dreams floating away. I stretch forth my hands to grasp them but they vaporize.
What have I become?
I heard the words quoted by Aristotle loud and clear, “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
Dear girls, Dear boys,
The beauty of life is this- before you find that happy place, you will fall, you will take hits, you will fail, you will be betrayed. Never lose sight of who you are, always focus on the positive.
A question lingers but is not voiced, “why must this happen? Why is this always so?”
I call it self preparedness. It is a period of chastisement, a period when you prune the crowd, a moment you learn and understand the true value of your work. No one ever values or regards what they don’t sweat for. That is why people use terms like “My hard earned money”. So for you to reap, you must sow. I understand it hurts when you find yourself toppled back or stuck in the middle. Never stop! Always keep on. I might not be there yet but looking back I am not where I used to be and it will only get better in time. So wake up! Dress up! Show up! And say-
“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I choose joy, happiness over negativity and pain. To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices. Today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but to embrace it.” ~ Kevyn Aucon
