Driving home today from work, I began thinking about what makes a person a bad person, or good person a good person and whether, that has to do with things that the universe throws at you.
I want to believe that if you strive to be a decent human being, meaning that you make decisions that are thought through and you are not out to cause harm to others than life should find a way for good things to happen to you. But, my internal struggle came from well what if you make bad decisions that can be harmful to others and/ or yourself do you still deserve to have good things happen to you. I am still pondering on this.
In my heart I feel like every single person deserves to lead the most epic life. We only get one life to live as is. Why strive to live anything but epic? If we have the power to create what we want, does that take away the desire to harm others. It got me thinking do we hurt people because of something that we are internally not happy with.
Glimpsing back at my life, when I have hurt others it wasn’t because of something they did wrong, it was something that wasn’t sitting right with me that caused me to cause others pain. I think that everything leads back to self- love and knowing you deserve an epic life. I know life throws hardships at you and not everyone has all the cards aligned to succeed but I think that everyone is capable of learning to love themselves and deal with events powerfully.
Loving myself has always been a huge struggle, only this past year have I really devoted time to myself. This year is the first time that I have put my needs first before anyone else’s. And this is what I have learned: My happiness doesn’t depend on other people. I can still love people who are not currently in my life, because they chose to not be there. Their choice doesn’t lessen my love for them or my desire to wish them to be happy. I am blessed to wake up every morning, and I am so grateful for the people that are in my life. I truly am lucky to spend my days with people that make me laugh, that joke around with me, people that aren’t afraid of being honest, I surround myself with people who like conversations, that are open to letting me be part of their story.
Ultimately I create the reality I live in. Why should anyone but me decide what kind of life I am supposed to have? Now, I know you may be like well, what if something bad happens how do you handle it, my dad reminds me every day when something tough is happening take a deep breathe and handle it in chunks. Break up the situation, human beings are so prone to just jump into action and most of the time the situation we are dealing with is a minimum risk to ourselves but jumping and trying to solve it all in one huge chunk or not exploring your possibilities or figuring out what you are really feeling and why, leads us to make rash decisions.
I challenge you to feel your feelings, all the uncomfortable ones. I challenge you to open your heart to possibilities that you think may be impossible. I challenge you to love like you have never been hurt before. I challenge you to be honest with yourself and do things that benefit you, that make you happy, that make you want to wake up every morning running out the door to start your day.
I set the intention for myself and my life to no longer accept anything less than EPIC. I am creating epic love, epic adventures, and an epic life. I am worthy and worth it, to live a fairytale.
BE OPEN, BE LOVING, BE FREE! You are the creator of your life, you deserve nothing less then an amazing.
ONE LOVE ALWAYS!
