Words written and spoken are a powerful medium that many do not think about or comprehend.
I have attempted to follow a path of staying positive
I try to read and teach from a place of love and light, so I surround myself with books sayings and people who also are positive. I do this to retain focus because there is a aspect of me that loves to remind me if my failures of my self pity moments and that aspect would love to keep me on a emotional downer.
Because I have awareness of that aspect of me I always try to have in place safe guards so that my visits into my 'poor me' state is brief.
We are all human and we all have a multi dimensional personality that hopefully we are aware of and for any of our negative aspects we have learnt to put into place 'outs'.
Staying focused positive and real takes work because life is a journey that requires us to develop often a outer skin of 'fitting in" and learning survival skills
We are taught many lessons and not all of them are sweet and light.
I believe it comes down to us choosing who we will be and then focusing our attention on bringing those aspects of self to the forefront.
For me that often means that I need to have words sayings and affirmations around to focus me on why I am.on this journey
and not to let the roadblocks that can appear stop me from moving forward.
For me self awareness is powerful and learning who you are and moving into acceptance of your perceived negatives as well as your positives is a great starting place.
"I am a beautiful light of love and acceptance and am open to learning and growing daily"
