If you stood before God today, what would your excuse or reason be to have lived the life you had? Would you be confident that you lived every moment to its potential? Have you buried your dreams before you, yourself, are buried? What excuse do you believe? Every choice we make is one to either move you forward or to remain unchanged. Don’t let another year pass without living to your potential. Be everything you yearn to be. Life is too short to wait. Stop procrastinating and start becoming the person you desire to be, because when life ends there isn’t another opportunity to change it.
You have a chance to do everything better than you have before. We are not defined or trapped by our past, nor is your future depicted by it. You create your future by the choices you make in each current moment. The present, is your gift. Those choices we seemingly assume to be mindless are creating the future, your future, before your very eyes. We need to be mindful and concious of the way we live out our day’s. Live in each moment purposefully, because you are the architect, designer and creator of this life you are living out.
Your future can be anything you desire it to be. The past is familiar and it is often repeated because of this familiarity we are drawn to it like a moth to a flame. Such as the same type of partner’s that end up breaking your heart. Familiar is not necessarily good, but fear stops us from seeking the new and we often settle back into old patterns and behaviors. We are habitually drawn to familiar things even though they can be negative. Because we have created fear around the idea of the unknown and unpredictably of a future that isn’t controlled, we tend to gravitate to the same men or women, or have trouble changing routines that are toxic. The familiar is modelled off your past, so if you are trying to change your direction stop following the same blueprints and recreate your life by proactively holding life’s pen and rewriting it. Embrace the new!
Starting setting high goals! Have expectations beyond your limiting thoughts and feelings. Leave the past like unturned soil. Stop digging it up! You cannot change what you did yesterday, but you can improve now! Make a deal with yourself to modify your thinking and to change your feelings. The actions will follow. Eventually your world will start to change. It will be possible for you to get excited about life. You will unlock opportunities and a whole new world will open its gates to you with open arms. New isn’t scary, staying the same is.
Take control of your thought life. Don’t own every feeling and thought that drops into your head, you can change and swap those for other constructive and kind thoughts. If you go to a shop for cake and it gives you coal you wouldn’t accept it, you deserve the best, you demand the best and you expect the best. So why do we accept less when it comes to ourselves and those vicious inner voices and critics? Why listen to the haters in our heads without challenging them? They can be challenged and they can be changed. We aren’t the product of our thoughts, but we are shaped by conscious thinking and the words thereof.
Do not dwell on the things and events of the past that have torn you down or limited your belief in life, love or yourself. Be better, do better every single day. Make changes within yourself and take back control of your life and give the world the version of yourself that is no longer afraid to breathe. Get beyond your self. Use your imagination to stir up thoughts and feelings that match your desires instead of your fears. Deny access to the enemy and dark energy that once resided. Take back ownership of your thought life, mind, body and soul.
Life really is too short, enjoy it.

Perceptions are versions of our individual truth. They are an accumulation of distorted images and sensory stimuli that create physiological, psychological and neurological responses to the world about us and the way we respond to it. Our memories and experiences are unique; they are based of an individual standpoint and mindset.
A single memory can trigger the way we interpret everything else because it may be a sensitivity we had not discovered about ourselves. Over time we stack them like bad chapters in decaying books. Being mindful and acknowledging the mind in its complexities, we may be able to see the simple world around us and how we shape it through our experiences.
We can change the way we interpret and fit the world around us. If we can reframe our past and file away those triggers so that we understand them, maybe we can find peace. Maybe, if we focus on the joy’s, rather than our fear and failures, we can build up rather than tear ourselves down. Maybe, in the darkness you can close your eyes and see yourself dancing without the noise and shine the light on your hope, strength and love.

Life is hard. There is not a rule book or a guide that will ever cover it all completely. Every life, every choice, every journey is indescribably different and unique. There is not a version of perfect to check everyone’s box. Life is complex, painful, difficult, arduous and tumultuous. Life is hard. However, throughout this hard life we are surrounded by gift’s.
When we focus on how bad and hard life is, it is easy to develop tunnel vision. Everything goes wrong! Why me? Things will never improve. This always happens… All we see are the problems. We are blinded, unable to see anything of beauty or value. Overshadowed. We only see the threat and the basis of all of all our fears is fear itself. It manifests around us like a tornado tearing worlds apart. Fear grips at your soul and torments your mind. It is hard to appreciate anything good. You feel as though joy is momentary because cracks will develop there too.
Exponentially experienced in the art of protecting ourselves to the detriment of ones very soul, our mind’s are the battlefield that the darkness expedites its army. Unknowingly we open the door and feed the monsters. We scream for freedom behind the bars of fear, where the evil grows, we are left lingering in the shadows. Legions of opposing thoughts creating feelings sire a lowly spirit. I scream, we all scream. Oh to be free, to let the light shine in. To free my mind, my life, my body and the world about me. To regain power over my enemy. To regain the life I have only dreamt of.
To shine so brightly that even in a dark world my soul will not cast a shadow. To be free and trust something bigger. To live happily with an imperishable hope in a world I feel estranged to. I renew my mind, my thoughts, feelings and world daily. Casting out my enemy, I surrender to love. My face pressed to the floor, tears of agony aged like fine wine soaking the earth beneath me. The impurities flee like sand into floor boards never to return. I regain my God given rights, to live, and love. Freedom floods the gates of my soul. I close the door to fear, the enemy that stole my life has lost its grip on my reality. I live and I love again; I am free. Life is hard, but I am stronger!

Focus on the good and the great things that life can offer – rather than the things you dred. If one is to reap what we sow, focus on planting some really great seeds. Create the life you desire by giving your dreams the ability to blossom.

We all make bad decisions, we are not perfect, but we can change future decisions today. There is lessons in everything, especially what we see as mistakes at the time. Getting to the mindset of not regretting your decisions is part of life’s journey. Though there are times we kind of wish thing’s did not happen or exist, but they did! We cannot change the past, only the future. The trick is – focusing on that. Change your life with conscious planned thoughts and actions. Do not get trapped by your past mistakes. Find the lesson and make better choices throughout your life starting now – because you can.

There comes a time when we need to do everything possible to move forward in life, rather than letting the past decide it’s fate. We ultimately have the power to change our future – our destiny today, not next week, but now. No one else can impact on our lives greater than ourselves. It isn’t easier to be a victim or play the blame game, because not only do we enable our adversaries with this invisible power (usually long after they have moved on), but we self sabotage. We punish and destroy ourselves because we’ve owned a perception, a lie, or state that doesn’t match our true identity. We settle for the junk and let other things set our value, and that my friend is wasting away your life. You can choose to live again, you can be victorious and live purposefully just as you always knew deep inside you could. So, do what ever it takes to rewire, reset and redefine YOU!

Keep pushing toward your goal’s, a breakthrough is always just one moment, or one decision away. Success comes to those who keep going regardless of the obstacles life throws at them. We are often blinded by the small picture which is magnified in moment’s of hardship. Learn to step back, reassess, relearn and challenge yourself every day. You have the ability to change through applying change. Before you know it, the scary and difficult mountains will be as small as peddles under your feet.

Contain me, love me, feel me with your soul — Let me in. Allow me to breathe deeply the hope of tomorrow and exhale the past.
My tears seep into my soul, never hitting the ground or salting my lips.
My heart aches. My being cries for everything and nothing… the worlds standards are not my own.
My thirst is deeper than a well, my hunger is for more than sustenance.
My soul yearns through every sleeping and conscious moment.
The mystery of love and happiness a constant pull.
I am an alien in a strange world, lost, waiting to be found, yet undeniably founded in the truth.

Walking in misdirection and stumbling through life we can only surmise the question of who we are? It is an epic tale, life is complex…
Carrying the weight of the world on fickle shoulders we are often beyond our own comprehension. Moments are fleeting, memories forever and regardless of how alone we have felt he journey has always been shared.
Looking back over our lives experiences — the conversations, the thoughts and the emotions, we can see how much we have evolved into who we are today.
Wisdom created over years of misjudgment initiates new direction and hope. Shaped by moments we have learnt through hindsight to initiate foresight and better judgment within our interactions of others and self.
Hindsight emancipates foresight through the lessons we have learned, and with it the evolution of soul begins, and our lives unfold. Our past can show us the error of our ways, the misjudgment, and the blurred vision we held of others and what we assumed of ourselves.
Pride and shame can savage ones being, yet, the lessons we learn humble the soul, enable us to build character and encompass integrity which allow us become the people we always believed to become.
