Today i woke up to a beautiful crisp fall morning, the sun was shining bright and the air was refreshing. I knew with such a beautiful day i could not let myself feel horrible another second, i know i can and will not admit defeat! It is not who i am! There has been a lot in my life that has been weighing me down and it seems no matter what i do, try, or change, things just get worse. I spent the last few days in tears, pondering why things are not getting better, why i must keep fighting all these different issues at one time. I keep looking for answers and solutions that are nowhere to be found! Everyone around me is causing such chaos in my life and while i cant change them, i can change me! So to shed some light so you have some idea of what is going on, without going into to much detail, because it would take pages to write these are only some issues i am facing. So to name a few let me start with first a very troubled marriage, a son with severe ADHD and anger , a ex husband who is not being supportive with our children and needs to get himself together, injuries from a car accident, and i have had a former person who was in my life still cyberstalking me and has been for almost 12 years. Now how is that for stress? I know each and everyone out there has some of these or all of these i just wish for you whomever you are and for myself that some of these would dissipate. Fighting one battle one crisis at a time is much easier then all at once! Therefore, i am finding my inner strength!
What is inner strength? It is purely the strength of the mind. It is a guiding force and the core of our inner soul! It is gaining control of you and not letting yourself be defeated! We all in life are victimized and we can either bow down or fight back. You can choose to be weak minded or strong minded because no one can take that from you! It means being the one to dictate your life! We are all powerful, we all can move mountains, we just need to believe in who we are. I myself take great pride in who i am, i may not make a million dollars but i am confident, secure, and admire my heart and soul knowing i am gracious, educated, pretty, and draw people in with my persona and personality. People are always drawn to me and that portrays confidence and a good soul! So while there are struggles in life with goodness and inner strength we can change our world!
Finding inner strength is not easy but here are my suggestions, Fight fear , embrace fear and challenges, declutter your mind, love yourself and who you are, change your thoughts and behaviors, learn it is okay to say i am not perfect, but i am who i am and that is okay with me, turn to people who make you smile, turn to God, and trust in those who make you better. Find support from people who have your best interest at heart and do not let others misguide you. Believe in you and the power you bestow! If you fall get up and try again, if you fall over and over, keep getting up and one day you wont fall again! Life is hard but life is precious!
