The Voice inside us all.

A poem about our inner voice and how it can heal.

For the longest time, I allowed myself to listen to the negative,  unloving, deceitful voice inside myself; each day, I would awake, and I would move forward with my day,  but in my mind, I was still be held back.  I didn’t see the beauty in my life and the uniqueness in myself; I only saw the darkness surrounding me and the roadblocks up ahead.

When I chose to see my life positively and listen to my positive inner voice,  my life and my perception of it began to change.  I saw things in a new light,  and the roadblocks were now wide open roads for me to travel on and move forward freely with my life.

The voice you choose to listen to can save your life; the voice you choose can change your life.
The voices you choose can cause you harm, make you feel sad, or give you new hope, even during those times when you feel at the end of your rope.
The words you speak to yourself will cause you to feel down or will allow you to keep your chin up when life feels unsound. These words can sting, or they can sing, but most importantly, they can heal.
So, If you continue to look up, even when you’re down, your life will start to turn right around. It may not happen fast, it may take some time, but the voices you choose will make you begin to feel just fine.
Each new day will bring something different, so allow yourself to speak, feel and let go, allowing you the room you need to listen to the voices that will help you grow.
Life can be either messy or sublime, but when you choose to talk to yourself with the right voices, life will seem less complicated, and in the end, reassure you that life is not terrible all the time.

A Glass Half Full

I am an optimist; I have spent too much of my life being a pessimist. I looked at the glass half empty instead of half full, and I focused on the bad instead of the good, and I thought that my life was worse than anyone else when in reality, many others have it so much worse. 

As I began to look at my life and realize just how good it really is compared to others around me, I started to open up to the good around me. Yes, my life isn’t perfect; yes, I have three neurological disorders that include epilepsy, which gets in my way from time to time; but things could always be worse, and I could still choose to think differently about it all, but I don’t. Life’s too short to take anything for granted. 

I let myself suffer for too long, which only led to deep heartache, sadness, and almost death. When I approached that final moment, and I was ready to end my life, I didn’t realize who else I would be hurting; I didn’t think of anyone else but myself. Looking back on that day, I am thankful that I didn’t follow through on what I had planned for myself because life had more important things set in place for me. 

I am an optimist, and I don’t take my life for granted. I choose to be grateful each day, and I don’t complain about the things that I cannot change. I focus on the good in my life, and I embrace my mess. I understand that life is not perfect, and neither am I. I have my days when I feel angry, and when I feel sad and downright miserable along with every other emotion, I don’t hold onto them. I let myself feel them now, sit with them, and let them go. 

Life is too short to spend it being angry, sad, miserable, and frustrated at the world all the time. It is time to feel good, and I will. Will you too?

New Year, New Intentions

It’s January 1st, 2021, and I have never been so ready to move forward into a new year than this one.

I intend to love more; not just others, but most importantly myself. By choosing to love myself more deeply each day will allow me to open myself up to loving others, and sharing in their joy and happiness more freely.

I intend to heal more; life is sometimes unkind and can cause things that are out of my control to happen. I choose to step back and breathe and focus on myself when I need to and allow my body, mind, and soul to heal.

I intend to inspire; I will move forward into this new year and encourage more people with my story. Inspiring others is a fantastic feeling, and I cannot wait to do more of it.

Finally, I intend to continue to stay grateful for my beautiful, messy life; I only have one life to live, and while it may not be perfect, this life is mine, and I am grateful. My body might ache, and my brain might be a little broken, but all in all, this life of mine is amazing, and I am thankful.

Peace is found in the present

I have been feeling quite anxious over the past few weeks due to a few things out of my control. Work has been a bit stressful, and dealing with a few health hurdles on top of it has made my thought process get quite cluttered.

I was thinking too far ahead when I really should have been thinking of the here and now, and I wasn’t allowing myself to feel the peace of the present moment; today, that changes.

I am choosing today to think in this moment, for this is the only moment that matters. Overthinking about the future doesn’t bring me any peace, and I am choosing to be at ease at this moment. As the great  philosopher Marcus Aurelius once said,

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” -Marcus Aurelius

Be at peace with your thoughts today; tomorrow is not promised to anyone. If you feel anxious, allow yourself room to breathe and bring yourself back to what is in front of you. Keep on keeping on everyone.

What is it that you are thankful for today? Let me know in the comments section, or write it down in your journal.
