Today I feel disrespected, upset and betrayed. I choose to feel that way. Happiness is a choice and some days it is not the easiest choice. The temptation to wallow in self pity and regret presents itself. The temptation begins as a lie and then by giving it enough focus, time and energy, it turns into the truth. Regrets revolve around situations. If only I had made another decision I would not be where I am today. Yet, is where you are today really that bad. Due to the unique nature of circumstances, there is a sense of loneliness. However, it is a new day to share with genuine friends and family.
The negativity must be released and named in song or writing. Sing while completing the daily tasks. Sing and cook. Sing and wash clothes and dishes. Sing and garden. Sing to release the negativity of the turmoil in life. Sing to release anger, grief and depression from your spirit. Have a reason to sing here on earth so that it will be even lovelier in the afterlife. Music is the only thing we take from heaven to earth at birth and from earth back to heaven at death. Music spans both realms.
Write to release the negativity from life. Journal and meditate on your thoughts. Sometimes written thoughts may be too much for others to bear. Writing is seen to be threatening to some people. Many may agree that writing should be done in a quiet corner in your home. Live to express and not to impress. Writing is a personal expression. The problem lies within the reader when what is being written makes them feel uneasy. The writer has achieved the goal of making the reader examine themselves and realize their short comings.
Write down personal thoughts or interesting quotations from philosophers or other famous people. The knowledge base will be strengthened and will undergo an extreme transformation. Mental horizons will broaden as more essential knowledge is acquired. Furthermore, wisdom will be obtained as by understanding yourself, by extension there will be a deeper understanding of others’ unique personalities. Wisdom provides the necessary tools to step out of mediocrity and to become a leader. First there is self transformation, through the examination of spirituality. Afterwards there is a one on one leadership through communication with like minded individuals. Thirdly, team leadership will be achieved through understanding others’ contributions in a group and respecting their differences. Within the fourth and highest level of leadership, that is organizational leadership, others perceive qualities that they admire and wish to emulate.
There are three choices to be made. How will you renew and refresh your mind, body and spirit? What philosophy will you adopt in your life that will make you an effective person? Who will you surround yourself? Renew yourself through meditation and prayer to Almighty God. Work for a cause not for applause. Live to express not to impress. Don’t strive to make your presence noticed just make your absence felt. Finally be surrounded with like-minded family and friends who support spirituality and epitomize confidentiality and trustworthiness. Don’t worry for you are not alone in this journey called life. Just be you and everything else will fall into place.
