Well well well, hello friends. First, I would like to apologize for my 6 month hiatus. Life just happens sometimes. Unfortunately, I find it easier to write when I have an eye opening experience and that just hasn’t happened in while… Until now.
A vicious cycle is what I have caught myself in. I keep going around and around and I can’t get out. I promised myself that I would not get wrapped up into it, but I have broken my promise. I’m not sure why I broke my promise either. It could be caused by a lapse of judgement, or it could be caused by insecurities. Regardless, I’m here to say right now, I’m breaking this vicious cycle. I’m going to take back control of my thoughts, actions and life. I make my own decisions. I make my own choices. I have the power to control who hurts me and who takes away my piece of mind. We all have these powers, we just sometimes don’t practice them like we should.
Similar to powers, we all have our own lives. Key words in that sentence are OUR. OWN. As in nobody else’s but yours. So don’t you dare allow anyone to dictate it. Don’t allow others actions affect how you live yours. This is a lesson that I’m still working on learning, but I’m positive that it is an important one.
Although I have broken my promise to myself, I still have another one that holds true: Never lose confidence in yourself. I am confident that I can break this vicious cycle. If you don’t believe in yourself, who else will?
“So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.”
