Well I’m trying something I’ve never done before which is freestyle blogging. Think of it– I have lines vs. bars!! Ok I know for some of you that was the corniest joke ever, but I’m hoping there are some of you out there like me who got GREAT pleasure out of that joke.
It is amazing how life can be good and bad at the same time? It’s like the universe knows how to keep everything properly balanced for your good. Picture it — you are about to embark on the biggest journey of your life, but at the same time you are scared to death. Will that fear stop you? HECK NO! Is that fear causing you great anguish? Heck Yes! The most interesting thing about it is, working through that fear, facing it while simultaneously moving forward is what brings the best out of you. It’s really a lesson I had to learn the hard way….
Work through it vs. letting it work you
I remember when I really understood the above section divide statement. I was laying on the floor in my room trying to figure out how I could get out of this mess of a state I was in. It was like I couldn’t get myself together. I remember thinking, I’m letting life, clients, and money pass me by. I said to myself, I can just throw all my problems to the back burner and act like they don’t exist or I can just accept the fact that this is what I have to deal with and learn how to manage life with major issues. I decided the latter option was best. Now for some of you, you might think this is common sense, but for me (at the time) when life would get challenging I would loose focus fall into this deep dark depressing abyss. When I learned that I could live life, grow my business, be normal while simultaneously managing dark issues — that is when I found my true freedom. I didn’t have to choose between evolving internally and evolving externally. I focused on inward evolution and it led to external evolution. In essence I learned how to work through my issues vs letting the issues work me. You have to realize you are as powerful as you realize you are. Self-actualization is key to winning in life. Knowing your strengths, weaknesses, failures and victories is like the melting pot that creates success.
Life with Imperfections is Perfect Living
Yes you read that right! Ok so I promise this will be my last paragraph, I’m on the roll now. Since I’ve spent the last two paragraphs really focusing on life’s contrast let me finish it with one more. The only way to really understand perfection is to be intimately involved with imperfection. It’s only when you acknowledge imperfection that you can then change it. See that’s the beauty of life, you see something wrong and you attempt to alter or fix it. This experience of seeing imperfection and addressing it also can serve as a great mirror to self. You realize things about yourself that maybe you didn’t know, for example, though that particular thing is imperfect you prefer to leave it as such vs. going through the inconvenience of change. Going through the consistent cycle of seeing, acknowledging, and addressing imperfection, and learning about yourself yields a wisdom on life that can’t be purchased in a book. In essence it yields perfect living.
Ok so I won’t guarantee that I’ll do this freestyle blogging again, but I must admit it was fun just to shoot off the top of my head. Thanks for reading and be sure to connect with me on my Facebook page by Clicking Here.
