The soul can only take so much hurt. Yet many keep on going in for more. Lack of self-worth often causes us to get, or try to get our worth from the most unworthiest of sources.
Many ask “why?”
Why don’t the ones who are hurting every ask “Why?” – “Why am I hurting? Why am I doing this? Why do I spend time with people who hurt me? Why don’t I want more from life? Why don’t I do something about it?”
For many of you reading this, you may be thinking, “I’ve heard this all before.” And yes, we hear it time and again. If this is you, by all means, move on. I have no problem with that. But there may be one person reading this who it will make a difference for. And that’s why I writing it.
If you are not happy with your life, start asking “Why?” Once you have found the answer, or you think you have, then ask “What can I do about it?” There will always be SOMETHING you can do. It needn’t be a huge thing, but there will be something you CAN do to start moving yourself towards the life you want and the life you will be happy in. It may take time, but it will never happen unless we start.
Once you have settled on what you can do, start doing it.
We can feel powerless. We can feel we have no control over our own lives. We can feel that we have no choice. But sister,
You do have a choice to do what you want at least ONCE during the day.
Therefore, you do have control over your life at least ONCE during the day.
Therefore, you do have POWER at least ONCE during the day.
There will be ONE thing that you can do every day that will start to make a difference in your life…..it may be :
- going for a walk
- pulling out some weeds
- journaling your feelings (you can throw it away as soon as you write it, if you are afraid someone may find it)
- spending 5 minutes (or even 1 minute!) imagining you are living the life you want
- doing 10 sit ups
- being grateful that the sun comes up in the morning
- saying to yourself “I am a good person and I deserve all that is good”
When you do this ONE small thing, think to yourself “I’M choosing to do this” “I’M in control right now” therefore “I DO have some power within me”.
You are powerful. You may not be as powerful as you want right now, but if you keep building on these ‘ONE times’ during the day, before you know it you will be realizing that you are choosing to do a number of things, then many things a day. And every time you remind yourself that YOU are choosing, and that YOU have power in that moment, you will feel more and more powerful as time goes on until you have enough power to make the BIG choice and really move on in your life.
So, soulsister, all power to you! You CAN have the life you want.
