NO ONE SAYS LIFE IS GOOD OR PERFECT ALL THE TIME

FLIGHT OR FIGHT

Welcome to my BLOG and thank you for joining me; it has been one hundred and forty-four days since my last post. I started this Blog as an opportunity to share my experiences, thoughts, my writings, personal and others journey and to explore my evolution. However, I failed over the past one hundred and forty-four days. I could not find the words or inspiration to share, when I was going through my own personal crisis. I was in a spiral and how could I inspire anyone or say anything inspirational when I was not feeling inspired. I had to hit rock bottom, fight back and hit rock bottom again a few more times. I was feeling like a Yo-yo in a skilled master’s hand, while riding on the back of a surfer.

I realized, I had to go through all the feelings; the hurts, disappointments and pain in order to let it go. Also it brought up things that I had buried decades ago and decided to just move on without acknowledging the feelings or hurt. My mind constantly reminded me of all the things I was trying to forget and thought I had forgotten. It was a battle royal that had me completely off the rail; as I tried to resolve unresolved trauma. The same advice I got and the talk I gave to myself; I share with you today.  Allow yourself time to cry, be angry, hurt, upset and come to terms and workout how to deal with all that YOU are feeling; while maintaining YOUR mental health. Face them, talk about them and your feelings, forgive, focus, recharge and get back to doing what you love. Exercise, rest, eat right, pamper yourself and give yourself some “I LOVE YOU” talks.

The most important tool I had to go back to is my thoughts of the FUTURE and that LIFE IS GOOD no matter what the challenges today. LIFE IS GOOD and as long as I was alive, I had an opportunity to make GOOD on and of life. Sure it was not going to be easy or always pleasant, life is like that and it may even send you in a spiral at some point in the future. Thankfully you will have some experience and tools to tackle them. Most of all love, be in love and be gentle with yourself and do something special for you. Thank you for sharing a small part of your day with me; I hope you enjoy these posts. Leave a comment, tell a friend and share a story. Have a great day or weekend and stay safe. And remember do something spontaneous and unexpected.
