I do not define myself by how many roadblocks have appeared on my path.
I define myself by the courage I’ve found to forge new roads.
I do not define myself by how many disappointments I’ve faced.
I define myself by the forgiveness and faith I’ve found to start again.
I do not define myself by how long a relationship lasted.
I define myself by how much I have loved, and am willing to love again.
I do not define myself by how many times I’ve struggled to my feet.
I am not my pain.
I am not my past.
I am that which has emerged from the fire.
When I first read this myself, I got goosebumps. Because I knew my thoughts and words would create actions.
And knowing that, and accepting these words.. (throwing out my negative words and thoughts)
It really created change in my life and how I thought about myself and Life when I was in an unhappy space.
I had to post this, to pass it forward.
I want to post for those that question: “What am I here, on this earth for?”, and in need of a confidence boost. To move on.
If You are here today, You are here for a reason!
Choose to took at Life’s experiences as teachings and accept the lessons, and grow from them.
Keep going and growing!
Take those lessons You learn, and create a person You love and are proud of!
I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t just accept my unique Life’s experiences, and use them as stepping stones to be, do and feel happy as I do about myself and Life!
Remember this: You were given your life because You are the one strong enough to live it.
Personal battles are always to be won!
Godspeed along Your way.
Peace and blessings,
– P. Blessman
