Today, as you can see a lot of things are available for us to focus on. For me, the ones which pop out the strongest are the ones dealing with mental health, writing and Eloquence.
Yesterday, while trying to help, my wording had the opposite affect than I’d desired and though the parties involved all understood I meant no harm, it did make me very aware of how powerful words can be.
This, led to other thinking and now I also find myself drawn back to teachings I learned long ago and now feel are in great need to remember myself and try to communicate to others as well.
You see, all the focuses mentioned above begin with thought. We’ve all read the scripture which states, “So a man think, so shall he be.”
We’ve also heard “Thoughts are things so make them good ones.”
These sayings are true, and law of attraction is real. The problem is I’ve been in this new mindset for so long and it’s become so comfortable to me, I almost forgot how long and hideous the journey to get to this point was.
In my latest Release, “Pathway to Freedom; Broken and Healed: How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life Second Edition” I began revealing things about my life I’d not told before. I wrote of the abuse I suffered, my mental illness and how the life I was living affected it and of how I tried with all my might to live and hold onto two lives. Which, in the end tore both apart.
Now, I’m tasked with writing the second book in that trilogy which will be, “Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed: Book Two the Raw Truth.”
Why do I feel this book is important to write if I have come through the darkness into a better place? Because there are people out there dealing with similar hells as what I’ve gone through and though their situations are different the result is the same. They are hurting and need to know that though the journey will at times be dank, dark, and terrifying if they are willing to work harder, dig deeper and persevere through the twisting turning path which leads through to the sunshine at the other end they can triumph as I’ve done.
I also want them to understand that when they do make it through into a better place in their lives it is a daily effort to maintain and grow that success.
Many people think the positive, upbeat confident outlook I have is me all the time. I must tell you, that’s just not so.
Each day, I must make certain to follow a routine. I must get up each morning, no matter how badly I feel spiritually, emotionally, and physically and go through a routine.
Though each person’s routine is going to be different, I can honestly state that even the simplest act of washing face, brushing teeth and hair, drinking water, and taking medications makes all the difference for the rest of my day.
Throughout the day, I must also maintain a mindful attitude where how I’m feeling spiritually, emotionally, and physically are concerned for their ever changing.
I can be going along happy as a clam baking in the sun when suddenly, WHAM! Something comes along to rattle me to my core and the next thing I know, I’m curled up in the Great and Powerful Chair in a complete state of funk and despair which if allowed can pull me down into the pit of a Bipolar Depressive episode and before I know what’s happening all the hard work I’ve done thus far would be destroyed.
How do I keep this from happening?
First, I allow the feelings I’m having.
Next, I sit and think about what brought them about for no matter what we say about there being no reason for them, there’s always a reason we just don’t always want to admit it.
Once I’ve made myself do that part the next thing to do is to decide rationally and realistically if I could’ve done anything differently and if so, what?
Then, I file that information away, knowing I’ve learned something new and useful. I pick myself up wipe away my tears, dust myself off and keep on putting one foot in front of the other going forward with my life.
That old saying of, “today, is yesterday’s tomorrow and tomorrow is another day” is true.
There’s nothing to do for what has been. We have no idea of the future so the now is all we have.
Did I always live this way? No, and that is the story I must now tell.
Once that is done, I’ll get to write the third book which will be, “Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed: Book Three”
Though I don’t have a complete title for that book yet, it will tell of how I came from the dankest, darkest place ever in my life into a beautiful place of awareness, light, and self-love.
Those who have followed my writing here on my blog, back when it was only in its beginning stages know I’ve come a long way. They’ve watched me learn and grow and it is true that nothing comes easy.
WE never learn to walk without that first step. Old habits can be broken but they never will if we don’t begin and that’s the most important thing to remember.
Years ago, I learned about The Four Agreements which are…
Be impeccable with your word,
Don’t take anything personal,
Don’t assume anything,
And always do your best.
Again, learning this took time and much hard work on my part. But I did learn it and it continues serving me well to this day.
I could go on but you get the idea.
I can make suggestions. I can lead you to helpful tools with which you may rebuild your lives. But I cannot do anymore than that. The rest is entirely up to you.
I wish you much joy and success in your journey on the pathway of life.
I urge you to embrace every part, both good and bad.
I believe if you do, like me you may have everlasting freedom from the chains with which you bind yourselves.
For now, I bid you a Wonderous Woden’s Day.
May Harmony find us All and Blessid may we be.
