Evolving Means Change!
Not all things are lost during times of transition, some roots are strong enough to stand the test of time and there are both internal and external factors to consider within all experiences.
Sometimes things can get to the point where there is nothing left to give and no will to try because so much has been broken down that there is nothing left to build on.
I think that determination depends on what lies in your past, what you want to see in your future and whether or not you believe your consideration can stand that test of time.
When it comes down to evaluating the importance of all that you think is important right now in your life you may learn that what you placed value on doesn’t have the real value you had thought, especially within the bigger picture.
Sometimes we make decisions out of fear, sometimes out of emotion but a decision that isn’t in alignment with your inner spirit will always create conflict within because it just doesn’t feel right in your heart and that feeling is your confirmation. If you are honoring your true spirit you will feel a sense of inner peace in everything you do.
We all have things to get past, everyone has something in their history they may feel shame and/or regret about but it starts with acceptance. From acceptance comes forgiveness, and not in the way you may be thinking or expecting, a definition as quoted by Oprah Winfrey:
- Forgiveness does not mean you have to accept the person back into your life.
- It does not mean you are condoning what they did or that you are in any way saying it was OK what they did.
- Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different.
From forgiveness comes the opportunity to start anew and there are many ways to change your life for the better. You can do it in small steps or make a plan to change it all around at once but taking advantage of the opportunity to positively change your life is entirely yours to do.
I find there are great sources of inspiration within everything around us, in particular through verbal communication, whether you are in conversation with someone or observing it. There are many great quotes & lines out there and I can really identify with this one from the movie “For Love of the Game”, which I thought was a good portrayal of the “out of body” experience one somewhat feels when reflecting on their life, choices and decisions they’ve made throughout.
“I used to believe, I still do, that if you give something your all, everything you have, it doesn’t matter if you win or lose as long as you risked everything, put everything out there”
I live my life this way, not for any other reason than because I just can’t see living life any other way. These are not just words but a path in life that offers the most rewards, through vision, karma and law of attraction. Everything and everyone in your life is enriched by any experience and/or relationship that you bring your heart and spirit to.
