To achieve your full potential is to reach ultimate beauty
You must utilize that which is within to achieve the greatness you desire
Be as a flower in spring
Through the winter and beginning of your life you will shrivel
Sink deep within the earth that feeds you
You may ponder your existence and feel unworthy
Be patient, this time will pass
You have all you need to blossom
You have the strength, courage, and determination to grow faster and higher than those who surround you
You are the most beautiful flower in the field
Be like the butterfly
In your beginning you will inch as a caterpillar
Almost insignificant to the great world around you
You can’t yet spread the wings of your potential
You must go through a transformation
You need to look within yourself
Close yourself out
These may be hard times
They make up the encasing you find yourself in
They will allow you to grow
These are the tools with which you will use to reach your beauty
Break free from all that holds you back
You must discover and love yourself before you can impact the world that surrounds you
Listen to your heart, remember all that you’ve been through
Know yourself to achieve your full beauty
Than you will glide as the butterfly
Flare out your beauty as the flower
People will revel in your greatness
Each breath, heartbeat, thought, and movement take place amongst chaos and calm.
Every instance is a happenstance to which we can attempt to understand.
Those understandings developed by individuals are the structure of religious beliefs, philosophies, and cognitive frameworks.
Good happens to those whom are good.
Bad happens to those whom are bad.
Bad happens to those whom are good.
Good happens to those whom are bad.
How legitimate is karma?
Does it have any validity?
Some will seek understanding beyond self.
Some will seek understanding of self.
Some will seek understanding of immediacy and moments.
Some will seek no understanding at all.
Development of religions, philosophies, and perceptions are to allow us to feel some sense of control amongst the chaos.
To feel at ease that maybe “everything happens for a reason.”
When really everything just happens.
The reasons are the religions, philosophies, and perceptions we turn to
Those perceptions and beliefs help us from spiraling into mental instability.
To delve into the depths of understanding is to fall into an loop of uncertainty.
We will seek to grasp what has occurred and frame it in a cognitive process that satisfies our beliefs and perceptions.
There will be instances where those will be challenged and possibly annihilated.
Leaving us scrambling for answers.
Resulting in possibly a restructuring of our beliefs and mental framework.
Thus the cycle begins.
Those may elect to seek only that which is superficial.
To refrain from seeking understanding.
To stay in a framework where they do not have to exert a significant amount of mental capacity.
To stay away from depth.
There has been some order discovered amongst the chaos.
Scientific theories and laws have been proposed and tested.
Actions causing reactions.
The need to understand has fueled intellectuals to discover some order; but, only so much of this exists within our lives.
Calm comes from a place of habitual acceptance.
The realization of chaos and whole hearted acceptance of said chaos is the calm.
Uncertainty is ever present.
Actions and reactions occur.
Happenstances are a reality.
Acceptance of these things may bring some peace of mind to the chaos of every instance.
Don’t be afraid to fail. Follow your instincts and go after what you feel is right. You know yourself better than anyone else. You’ve seen, felt, and experienced things in your own way. No one can tell you how you feel or what you know. We are all made of the same basic elements, but we all grow differently. We all have different life changing experiences. They make us who we are. Fear is natural and is accepted, but fear limits you. Overcoming a fear of failure will allow you to discover more about who you are. Embrace failure as a learning experience. As a way for you to grow and move forward. Fear of failure will limit you in what you venture out and experience. You are less willing to put yourself out there and experience all that life has to offer. Realize that everyone fails. No one can go through life without some hardship. When you do fail you must pick yourself up and keep going. Don’t be complacent. Don’t ever settle. If you find yourself too comfortable and unfulfilled then change things. Leave your job, find a new start somewhere, explore a new path, etc. Failure is a part of life, but one doesn’t have to be afraid to fail. Be resilient. Fight for yourself and what you believe in. Discover your purpose and you’re individual meaning of life. Don’t let fear hold you back from your destiny of greatness.
I refuse to believe that you have not been humbled
That you have lived your life without some pain and despair
Humility can come from many different instances and happenings
In that moment of declined dignity
When you are brought down from your perceived pedestal
You will have a choice
You can walk this new path cleared in the earth
Or you can climb up to the conceited path where you once stood
Humility stands as a reminder that we are human
To be humble is to be grounded
Do not interpret my words to mean throw away your confidence, your sense of self-worth, or your pride.
But do remember what it means to be humble
Remember what it means to make mistakes
To feel pain, sadness, and lowliness
While also remembering what you have going for you
Remember what everyday moments you should be thankful for
Remember how simple and yet complex life can be
And remember that it’s never as bad as it seems
Stay humble and grounded while feeling privileged and fortunate
Always be thankful
Kindness can change moods
A single act of kindness can change someone’s day
No matter the size of the act
The quality or length of words spoken
Kindness has a profound impact on the world around us
A simple hug
A caring word
A small gesture of thoughtfulness
Kindness brings about happiness and smiles
It eases worry and stress
It increases health both physically and mentally
Giving kindness to others creates friendships
Establishes unbreakable bonds
It restores a faith in humanity that may have been lost
Strive to always be kind
You may change someone’s life
Most importantly be kind to yourself
Do things for yourself to make yourself happy
Be compassionate, loving, and caring to yourself
Even if it’s a small gesture of kindness
You may change YOUR day for the better
Are your scales equally aligned
Are you indulgent
Are you abstaining
How are you using your time
How are you filling your day
Do you allow for rest
Do you let yourself heal
Have you felt the warmth of the sun
Have you felt the warmth of your bed
Do you spend time with your loved ones
Do you spend time alone
One can be focused on one entity
Losing sight of its equally important opposite
Don’t just balance your time
Balance your emotions and feelings
Don’t give all your love to others
Keep some for yourself
But don’t be passive
But do not be naive
But do not be depressed
Find your balance to stay centered and upright
