The noise in our heads can sometimes be louder than the sounds surrounding us…
It’s the chaotic feels we often try to find an escape from; never realizing the beauty in embracing the strain. The process of change stretches us and allows us to find new heights and depths of our realities; to help us express ourselves in new ways: more creative and seasoned with experiences that make us think differently than we were originally programmed.
The art of life is the challenges that push out purpose. Nothing is meant to remain stagnant. I believe stagnancy is the death of creativity. When we become stuck on how we feel life is “supposed to be”.
The course of life itself is infinite and unpredictable. There’s so many ways we can divert from “the plan”. Moving away from the fear of diversion only leads us to greater being. What we plan for ourselves will always be from a biased point of view. We can’t truly confirm who we will be or where we’ll end up because those parts of us are constantly changing and evolving based on the simple things: where we live, where we consider work, the people we meet, the knowledge we gain. There’s no possible way to stick to the script unless we fight change, robbing ourselves of the opportunities to truly develop.
The challenge is to fall into the moments of fear and discontentment and truly embrace them. We have to experience the feeling of the unknown in order to learn how to move forward. Experience is the only true teacher of life. We can watch motivational videos, read every self help book or blog, or listen to advice from loved ones as much as we want. The answers we seek all comes from within and there’s no way to avoid the journey. All we can do is trust God and believe in ourselves enough to know that no matter where life leads us everything will work out; even when facing the experiences we can’t control.
There’s always wisdom to be gained. The ability to learn is truly a gift that reminds us to remain in humility. It’s a beautiful life to have those constant reminders because it also teaches us to appreciate where we are and to have faith in where we’re going.
There’s not a single occasion in life that’s not attached to another. Everything we experience is present or existed for a reason. That fact alone defines living a life full of purpose. There’s purpose in every moment: both the successes and the losses. The quality of our lives aren’t solely based on how we feel; emotions are temporary. In the same moment we express disappointment there’s still something else in our lives that can bring us joy. It’s all based on where we decide to put our focus.
Where we’ll end up is truly unpredictable, but appreciation of life itself will help us see the beauty of what’s to be gained. It’s time to unhinge from fear and connect with faith in new possibilities. The potential YOU have is endless.
