I actually don't think I'm that deep and certainly not shocking, but that's my perspective. At the end of the day, it's not that serious, I AM WHO I AM, YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE so IT IS WHAT IT IS! I love to blog, express myself deeply and passionately, but most of all I love to study people and try to step into their shoes if possible. For me it is an opportunity to learn their life lessons.
There really is something to be said by practicing compassion even if you don't feel somebody may deserve it. It says a whole lot about your character and not so much about who the other person is or what they did. You are not their jury or judge. CAREFUL WHERE YOU POINT YOUR FINGERS. LIFE HAS A FUNNY WAY OF POINTING 3 FINGERS RIGHT BACK AT YOU. *TRUTH*
No matter how much praise and fanatic pedestal worship people choose to place upon you, understand that it is jujust for doing what your heart tells you to do or for using your gifts, talents to tap into your greatness, your life is always about you. It is not real.
It is never about what other people think of you or how they feel about your choices and decisions. At they end of the day, you have to live with yourself, your decisions, your choices, but you also have to LIVE. It is very difficult to just LIVE, when the whole world is constantly pointing fingers at you and reminding you of who you use to be, what you went through and your poor choices. It takes tremendous courage and strength to LIVE through and beyond all of those judgments. Not everyone is strong enough to walk that path and thrive.
Yesterday was interesting for me because as I've said many times before, I love to study people. I don't study people for judgement because people are unique individuals who at times choose to be followers instead of putting the work in that it really takes to be a leader. You don't have to be a leader to others as much as you have to be one to yourself. I study people simply to learn. I love to see the different mindsets as well as what makes people tick. Life has taught me many lessons but one of the biggest is As I watched Ray Lewis last
WHO YOU WERE YESTERDAY, SHOULD NEVER BE WHO YOU ARE TODAY. PERSONAL GROWTH IS KEY.
YOU SHOULD HAVE A NEW TRUTH THAT HAS RENEWED YOU.
In order to become GREATNESS you must learn to discover who you truly are in order to overcome your personal struggles. You must be able to destroy what destroys you from within.
The thing about life is that your lessons are usually chosen for you. You may not be able to choose your lessons but you do get choose your outlook, how you're willing to learn in order to win in life.
