It’s going to be okay! Breathe; being vulnerable can be really powerful, remembering that we are humans, flawed and trying to get through life with smiles locked in unforeseen circumstances, obstacles, hurdles, sidewalks are nothing but stepping stones to elaborate the warrior tied to your spine.
And its okay for the pieces to be dismantled; you are doing just great. It is okay for the canvas to be blank for the rainbows have been imprinted on your palms.
Sometimes, the road and journey get rusty with the implants of doubt, the lantern in our soul fades, confusion layering up in our thoughts; we buckle anxiety and drift towards low self-esteem and fear.
It’s hard to key into the fact that growth is tied and linked to our breaking, shedding, rising, wilting, learning and unlearning, letting go and holding on tight sometimes in reverse, burning continuously even with a weak flick.
Growth rolls in assembling the uneven, sharp, blunt and carved pieces life hands over to us. You do not grow on your own, you grow as you go.
Even when strength places a curfew on appearing and when confusion builds a sanctuary, it will be okay; when fear is thick and anxiety hangs over, when silence crawls in, you need to understand that trials and joy have an integral part to play in our lives.
You Have To Open Up To Growth As The Process Entails
1. Understanding That Every Season Is For A Reason
Life unveils to us in fractions; every challenge, obstacle, barrier, block, impediment, hindrance, and complication has its role to play, each rock waiting to be turned.
A year ago, I was at a low point in my life; my intuition, a young child with fear rallying in my life and it took me a lot of work to come out from that phase which taught me to love myself and find myself in all my learning’s.
I learned that life throw challenges at you to see how resilient and ready you are to get down with her, oftentimes before things fall in place.
2. Know And Define Your Authenticity
Do not subject or reduce yourself to please others. You can choose to make sacrifices and sometimes choose others first but know when to draw the boundary. Define your worth and peg them to the corners of your mind.
3. Know When To Walk Away From Stale Energy
Life is a trail of events happening simultaneously, you have to learn to live and adapt to the unpredictable cycle and in the process know when to walk out of certain situations that are not good for you.
4. Create Time For Yourself
Do not get lost in the bustle and race for others and neglect yourself. Watch that movie, bath yourself with that expensive lotion; do not save it up for unknown days, and give yourself a treat.
When obstacles try to build blocks of impossibilities, do not entertain your fears or let rejections intimidate you, rather squeeze opportunities from challenges.
This sounds hard to chew on especially in the face of difficulties, tell me more about it and I will tell you of all the reasons I refuse to quit inspite of closed gates. Rather than capitalizing on reasons to quit, look inward and see the warrior sharpened as blades cut through preparing you for a higher and better level.
5. Channel Into The Spiritual
Calm your mind, sharpen your understanding, meditate, and align your thoughts with the universe as everything you can ever spring into lies with you.
These are some marked point and possible ways you could tackle the cycle of growth and I would really love to hear from you. What is your definition of growth and what do you do, to keep on growing from trials and obstacles?
