Our Walls, From Within

Things are as they are.
Notice your own responses/ reactions.
When you’re holding something against someone, let it go, and try an act of kindness towards that person.
When you decide you’re right, do you stop listening? If so, decide not to be right, but to listen and to be open minded. You may just hear something and learn something new.

Awareness of our own thoughts, perspectives, and behavior is critical if we are to grow and to evolve the best version of ourself.

We must notice the walls we put up, and decide to breathe and break through them.

Response

When you least suspect it…
It can be hectic
Cause you didn’t expect it,
But you gotta accept it,
For what it is.

So, what is it?
What happened?
How are you effected?
Have you elected to react?
Were you attacked?
The way it was has changed?
The future, you were wanting, rearranged?
So, where do you go from here?

Do you know who you are?
Are you identified by things?
Your value changed by what life brings, or doesn’t?

Words of Wisdom

Stand-tall and smile,
With your shoulders back.
You’re right-where you-should-be.
There’s nothing you lack.

You have what you need.
You have more than enough.
Life’s not about fair.
It’s supposed to be tough.

So make the most
Of who you are,
And challenge yourself
To keep raising your bar.

Get with positive thinking;
Belief that you can;
Belief that you’re Great,
And a part of God’s plan.

You are his light,
And made to shine bright
It comes from within,
And it is your right.

Not reserved for a few;
We’re all made this-way.
So, don’t allow others
To ruin your day.

Decide here and now
To move forward as whole,
And to let go of the things
That have taken a toll.
