It's your journey, find your way home. You know there is a breakthrough coming when you start to feel glum and not as confident. When you feel discouraged and lost. The last step to that level or chapter is believing in yourself. Believing in yourself more and louder than those negative thoughts that are floating in and out. We should always be kind and compassionate to everyone who's presence and who’s space we enter. We don't know if we are walking into a battleground or an oasis. We never know what the person across from us is going through. It could be an internal fight for their life, a fight that could go either way at any moment. I am on the ground now. I'm feeling different types of ways and I know the tunnel is opening up. It's a struggle but it's also love. We are rebuilding. Sometimes you got to go in to get out not knowing why things happen but believing they are happening for a positive reason. When I was in the dark state of my first depression, there was no reasoning. It was just black with a lot of fingers pointing away from me. I was blaming my whole state of being on all those who didn't help. My path had been changed. Everything was altered. As a result, it was not what I wanted, so I resented it. Fought it. Overtime I realized what I was fighting: myself. So I stopped and gave my will over to God’s will. Then things started happening. Something on the inside of me wanted more. Wanted to test what life was. With religion being the starting block, I jumped into the arms of Jesus Christ and he carried me over the old world and sent me on my feet in the New World and said go and be free. Live. But I didn't know what he meant, so I asked. And all I heard back was SEEK! So I did. And the places we will go! And then we submit to that which is the unknown. Trust in fate. Resting in faith. God will keep me safe. Will you hear my cry? Know my sorrow? Then you hear, yes my Son. And even if you did make it up, you believe His voice and breathe easy and you will be. Live free and be happy! Joy is love. Love is God. Out of sight, out of mind unless you see with your mind’s eye! Make it a conscious effort to know what your feelings are saying to you. Then focus & breathe. Spend time with those feelings. Really feel the feeling. Only do this if you are aware of your safe space and know that it's just a feeling, it does not define who you are. Yet. Because if you go into a feeling and believe it, it could trap you and hold you in, pressing you deeper in darkness. So from your safe space go see what your world is saying to you. If the inside can reflect the outside and the outside is making you feel some kind of way, possibly there still may be some places that still need some attention from the core of your being. Feel. Be Still. Flow and know! Keep pushing forward toward the end of the tunnel. If your physical and your soul align and want it then you can have it. When truths are realized, hope is restored. If you have what you really truly know you want without settling then you are living your dream.
