Being joyful in the life you have is a process. While I’m perceived and try to be the light for everyone and anyone, I am learning that I have to keep some of that light for myself. I feel incredibly selfish writing it but as I’m growing and glowing, I realize that I’m not going to go anywhere if I don’t. Much like every other soul on earth, I have difficult moments throughout each day.
Are they catastrophic? No.
Do they impact my spirit? Yes.
Pain and problems are subjective and require attention. You can’t ignore your faults no matter how long or hard you try, they will persevere in some form or fashion so you might as well make the best of it instead of the worst.
Getting ahead of the problem and addressing in a proactive way instead of reactive can radically change your view of your life and the problems that exist around it. Happy may be the term you’re yearning for but it’s not accurate. Happiness is a fleeting moment that you can’t clench in your fists to make it stay. Instead, you have to open your hands and let it go and be content knowing that it will come back in waves following the tides of pain we don’t like crashing upon the shore of our front door.
The tides are hitting my door right now and they’re rocking my foundation like a hurricane. While I’m transparent, there are some things I must keep private. I also hate dwelling because it impacts my life in minutes, hours, and days, that I can never get back. My life and yours are too precious to waste on things we cannot control.
As I throw glitter in my mind today, I hope that this vulnerable blog post will help you find some glitter in yours as well.
Let light lead through the process you’re in.
