Well said John; the late and great John Lennon that is. So simple yet tremendously profound; Let it Be. I've been doing some 'soul-searching' recently; and you can take that to mean whatever you want it to be, but for me it is focusing less on the superficial and more of the inside and what it means to me. This I find pertinent to my growth as an individual in life; to not take the 'Jair' too seriously and focus more on what the small girl inside needs most. I found it! I like to make that small girl happy, but how forgetful we humans are; I always need reminding, and I'm forever grateful for my friends, family and spirit guides that light up my way and keep me on the right track.
Most things in life we DO NOT have control over. We DO have control of the 'oil-spills' we transport in our precious water. We DO have control over treating people with respect and kindness. We DO have control on being compassionate and forgiving to people that have done us wrong. We DO NOT have control however on how rugged our path should be. $hit happens all the time; life is not a smooth ride, that's for sure, it's a mysterious upsy-downsy, topsy-turvy thing! The ups are marvelous and the downs, makes you feel like burying yourself in a hole. But even though we're addicted to the more incredible moments, it is only at the darkest and harsher ones we are able to build our character as an individual and truly blossom into that fearless, strapping and astounding person we can be!
I've mentioned this before – some of you that read may remember… J My father always said, life is like a traffic jam; you look ahead and you see a whole long line of cars ahead of you, and you wish you were at the front of the line, but if you take a peek into your rear-view mirror you'll see also a daunting line behind you. Be happy with the spot you've got, you'll get off the highway eventually, just be patient. And he's so right! You see, we always want summer in the winter, winter in the summer and we always complain about what we want, want, want. Yes, wants and desires are valuable and significant in life; because it is what gives us a sense of purpose and meaning in life. It makes us happy to say the least. However, we must think of our needs, our nourishment – and this doesn't only mean what you eat, but also nurturing that small girl/boy inside of you. Once you respect and love yourself then and only then you can move forward as a warrior of wisdom.
Some feelings/emotions and mostly people tend to have power over us; or so we sometimes feel. You value their words a great deal because you expect certain things of them; and you imagine that they are things they most certainly are not. You don't pick the story or the path, but you have to act the part of you. Have compassion; let go; let it be; you are still wonderful! Give that small boy/girl an enormous hug; they deserve it. Despite what others may do to you to make you upset, or when your positivity is drained and sucked away, try to remember that they should have no power over you!
Be the master! Of your thoughts, of your being, of your life!
Grateful for life, health, strength and for the single people out there! Your freedom! J These are some of the best days of your life. Lemme' tell you, I know, for no matter what games people play, know that you have the opportunity to be true to yourself. To walk bare-footed, and let your hair flow messily when you drive through the mountains of new destinations waiting to be discovered. That you can talk to who you want, when you want and for how long you want. That you can be just that….FREE! To dance, to squeal if you cannot sing and to just be! Enjoy the moments. And never stop being you and true to you, until someone worthy cares to join you for the bumpy ride 'se llama' LIFE! Be grateful of your spot…I'm quite sure you'll be rightfully blessed if you keep on the right path! J
