Full Potential

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

Chaos/Calm

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.

Fear of Failure

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.

Humble

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

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

Balance

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

Be humbled

But don’t be passive

Be happy

But do not be naive

Have depth

But do not be depressed

Balance life

Balance time

Balance love

Find your balance to stay centered and upright
