Learning from the past is the greatest education you can have.
Being able to forget those in your past which were never really with you
Strangely feels like a loss initially, but in time, clarity makes it the most comfortable place to settle in.
I think all the past experiences in life help make us become the person we are today, hopefully you are happy with yourself and not becoming more of a jerk… haha
Freeing yourself of the negative drama, unfaithful friends and family, mental abuse and confusion, allows you to focus on the love, trust and hope in others that are willing to journey through life with you. It is wonderful to have rock solid people in your life.
I have hope for humanity, but I do not put faith in them. Your faith is the one sacred thing that is yours and yours alone.
Speak about it, share it when the time is right, but more importantly, keep living it as an example of the actions you create.
Words are the pencil sketch to outline what you believe, but the true color is filled in with each stroke of your actions.
How will you be remembered? Do you even care to be a difference and not just make a difference. If you are looking for attention now
with what you do then that is your reward by the attention you get. I prefer to just be true to oneself and try to live with unconditional love for those who wish for it to be so.
Don’t beat yourself up when you make mistakes because you certainly will, but you have to examine how and why the mistakes happen.
Often and oddly enough, many of the mistakes are situational and come about because of the very people or places you yourself allow into your life.
Clean house, mentally, physically and spiritually and you will not believe how comforting it is to let people in of real pure value! I let myself get lost for a short time when the situation I had allowed myself to get in began to change me from who I really have always been. I didn't want that to attach to me, it was hard to shed it off but when I did, wow, what a freedom!
I was once told by someone that I reminded them of a cabin in the distance of a picture they took. Always warm , inviting, a safe , comfortable place to be. I like that.
This is who I am and always have been. If someone becomes jealous of the peace you maintain even amongst major trials and tests.. it’s ok, that is their issues to deal with.
For me it is not fake for I discovered the true meaning of peace long ago and am grateful to draw from that when ever it feels like slipping away. Just keep being that inviting Cabin in the woods that maybe some only can vacation in once in awhile, but you get to actually live there all year round!
Peace fellow artists!
