Sometimes we feel out of control. We don’t like our lives. We feel powerless and dissatisfied. It’s as if someone else is pulling our puppet strings and making us dance to chaotic music on a stage filled with holes.
It doesn’t have to be that way. We have power. Even when it feels as though we’re prisoners in a world that’s gone insane, we have the power to create the lives we choose. We have the power to be happy, content, and fulfilled.
When you are centered and happy with your life, you can then help other people. But to be there for others, you have to be there for yourself first.
There will be times when we need to just survive, but our resilience is also our power. Finding moments of happiness during times of strife is always possible.
It’s important to remember that nothing is all bad and nothing is all good. When things are good, the money, success, and reputations we have are fleeting. When things are bad, the pain, struggle, and discontent are temporary. The momentary nature of things is pretty cool.
It takes patience, diligence, and action to change our lives, but we can create lives in a world we want. It won’t ever be a utopia, but it won’t ever be all suffering either.
Sometimes, it’s just a matter of lighting the fire inside. How do we do that? It’s very individual. Each of us is different.
I help people light the fire. Get in contact. Send me a message.
All of us are powerful people capable of amazing and extraordinary things.
