Fate whispers to the #warrior, 'You can not withstand the storm.'
The warrior whispers back, 'I am the storm.' One of my favorite quotes. If you’re putting yourself out there to live to the fullest, your purest, #Life will beat you down regardless of the loved ones who want to protect you from the disappointments and dishonest. As much as I’d Iove to spare anyone I loved from these disappointments I know how valuable they were to forge me. It’s learning from these experiences we transform into an upgraded self. I didn’t realize at the time, but see how each bad moment was a gift. I learned it only hurt if I let it. A turning point showing me more of what’s important and what’s not important! Build yourself stronger everytime you fall. Also, get a reality check. I do. I recognize my hardest days, which involves some level of disappointment in how I was treated, was because I allowed it. Always be your greatest advocate. I had to learn to know more. I make a point to help others who may not be as outspoken when I see inequality happen because It feels better standing up for something than hiding in the shadows. If you’re hiding, I don’t fault you. People can be hard on others, stifling others with their limits. Ex, we aren’t born with fear or insecurities. Some fears are legit and we learn from something like burning our hand touching the stove. Insecurities are forced on us by weak minds. It feels safer to hide but that’s usually a false cloak. They’ll probably turn on you. Show your teeth to the bullies. They’re predictable and move on to weaker targets bc they have no real strength. That’s the joke. For anyone judging, you’re the loser. For anyone feeling judged, I hope you find the power to believe in yourself, your unique gifts and don’t let anyone hold you back from doing more of what makes you smile. Don’t care about naysayers or ones who don’t celebrate your successes. Sad lurkers, you’ve got no time for that, rather #Focus everything on further elevating your life and surrounding yourself with only those who smile at your #effervescent soul! #OneLife#levelup#liveitup#neversettle#inspiration#perseverance#theway#love#leadership#staywild#stayfree
