On being invincible

Cristian Mihai

“In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.
In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile.
In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm.
I realized, through it all, that…
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
Albert Camus

The only way you’re ever going to accomplish something worth mentioning is to rely on your inner strength. True motivation comes from inside. Why some people never give up, no matter what, and why some people never finish a job they’ve started… that’s all about how much they believe in themselves.

The truth is, I can…

Confessions

I might feel alone but I’m not. There are other people in this world who understand, it is a matter of finding the ones who do.

I cannot change other people, but I have the power to transform myself. My transformation may or may not provoke others to change.

It is easy for me to listen to my mind more than my heart. I am still learning how to differentiate between the two. How I feel and what I think and say are sometimes not the same.

I want to cry more instead of holding it all in by making excuses for everyone and myself.

Sitting in meditation isn’t easy, which is why I practice for 10 minutes a week. I figure start small and build up from there. I have been practicing for a few weeks now and I am becoming more aware of the different thoughts and feelings that are within me. Learning to become mindful has made me realize that I am Responsible for my happiness and that I can Choose how to think about life.
With this insight I look forward to getting to know myself better ⭐️

A Mother’s Love

For years, I’ve craved genuine love from my mother. I cast away the past, forgetting abuse, neglect, and abandonment,fully forgiving her..Sadly, it was never enough.
My mother gave birth to me she. She was fifteen years old. She’s told me constantly that if the doctor would’ve had sympathy for her and took the money, I would’ve been aborted. Needless to say, it hurts to hear her recant this story, not only to me, but my friends. It use to make me feel worthless and unwanted, but as time grew, I ignored it.
Today, I built enough courage to tell her how she’s made me feel, how she’s made me hate my own life because of me thinking I wasn’t good. “Well, that’s your fault!” “What makes you think you deserve special treatment, I didn’t get it when I was growing up!”
Although it hit me like a Ton of rocks, I could see the silver lining. The love I’ve been looking for is a love that she can’t even give to herself; it’s non-existent. To all my sisters who have great relationship with their mothers, CHERISH IT!

Seasons Change

After a long year of changing seasons I finally feel like my feet are planted on solid ground. From struggling with work, battling the loss of fertility to the loss of my marriage I huddled through so many different changes. Throughout the whole experience I just hung close to the ones who loved me through it and kept thinking that something good had to come from it. Now that I look back I thank God for all the changes and what they’ve taught me. I’ve learned the value of friendship, the good in goodbye, and I’ve learned to not let any loss make me feel less of a beautiful person.

Believe

What do you see yourself doing 5 years from now? 10 years, 20 years, or even 40years from now? Does this question sound familiar? Ahh yes we can’t deny the fact that we have all thought about what we would be doing in the future. I believe that our dreams and goals are so special and important to us and we should never let them go! Do these goals change? Probably. But they do not change drastically so it is safe to say that the vision you have of yourself years down the line is a valid one at that. So I encourage you to stick with those dreams and goals of yours that you believe will help you become a better and more happy person. Because trust me when I say that we need more good people in this world.Image

Take Your Hands Off That Wheel

How many times have you buried yourself in your thoughts about financial matters, relationships issues, or even a promotion at work? If you’re like me, your number is almost unbelievable.
After stressing over finding a new job and a new place to live, my mind had enough. I couldn’t find an employer that was willing to invest in my knowledge or even my work ethic. I basically said to hell with it! I gave up!
After weeks of letting go, I received an email about a job offer. I couldn’t believe it, but it was in that moment that I was shaken and brought back to life. The lesson I learned was valuable..”LET GO & LET GOD!”
If we as women could stop, think, an let go in every situation, God’s designed path for our lives will show. It’s hard! I agree! However as women, lets challenge ourselves to be rational and aware of when to take our hands off the wheel!..let’s give the keys to God and allow him to show us the scenic route!

Unique

Today’s society has become centered around beauty. Plastic surgery has been amongst the highest on the list of surgeries for the past decade. Don’t get me wrong,I believe everyone should do whatever makes the happy and more comfortable with themselves, but I must play the devils advocate. How would one know if she’s “ugly”? One word, society.
Our society has created this stigma that defines a woman’s beauty. For instance, women should have small waists, perfect breasts, and a nice butt. So what about those who are not fortunate to have a sculpted body? Will you deem those women as unattractive? Why should anyone feel pressured into looking perfect? Why should anyone feel self-conscious about their outward appearance?
I believe every woman should feel comfortable in her own skin. I don’t believe they should be pressured into changing their image to please the hunger of society.

We are not so different after all…

I think that there are fundamental similarities found in all of us. And one may ask So What? I reply that knowing our similarities and embracing our humanity, is in itself the best part of being human, and I believe that there are things we all share in common. Although I can’t pinpoint all of these things I can at least identify some…

  1. We all will fall in love at least once.
  2. We all will lose a loved one.
  3. We all will have to support ourselves or will have someone supporting us. Nevertheless, income matters.
  4. We all will have to make at least one last-minute decision that will affect the rest of our lives.
  5. We all ponder our past, present, and future to try to put the pieces together. We do this with our own lives and the lives of others.
  6. We all look at who our primary care-givers were as guidance of what we will or will not be like as we get older.
  7. We all hold our love in when we sense someone could possibly hurt us.
  8. And just to state the obvious, we all go to sleep and we all wake up in the mornings.

I think it is important for us not to forget what we have in common, since a lot of the times it is our “differences” that stick out the most.
