A thought crossed my mind with I was out for walk, currently the best time of my day.
I remembered reading Rumi’s quote about it and found these words when I searched:
“Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.”
“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”
Whatever we see, read, listen, and our senses soak up as we proceed in life, our experiences, good bad and ugly, It’s all there registered somewhere in our minds, and turn into our own inner voices.
Unfortunately, the negative voices that we hear are loud, powerful, ferocious and convincing as hell.
Remember you said/did that 5 years ago and embarrassed yourself. Everyone thinks about that 24/7.
That decision you made last year, was the worst decision, and ruined your life.
You are a failure, because your life isn’t what you planned it to be.
Everyone else has it better than you!
And then, there are these frail stifled voices in your head, like soft tiny specks of light in pitch black darkness.
Your positive voices.
Nobody remembers and care about your insignificant and completely forgettable human error. If they do, they are assholes and you shouldn’t care about them.
Every decision we make in a moment, we excessively pro-con it. And at that moment, it must have been the best decision.
If you woke up today, and no matter how hard it was, you pulled through. You are not a failure. Surviving IS winning. And who knows you will end up having something bigger than your plan.
Everyone. EVERYONE! is going through something or other. No matter how glorious their life looks, they all have their own struggles. And guess what, maybe theirs are harder than yours. You just don’t know about them.
We rarely hear positive voices and shush them to whispers.
We need to look for them, acknowledge them and give them a chance to direct us.
Again. It’s a long process. But once you start to focus on those faint glimmers, the darkness doesn’t bother you anymore.
Everyday is a new page in you story, Don’t waste on thoughts that are nothing more than ugly splotches of ink in your exceptional story.
