Life is beautiful, even with all of its ups and downs.
Even with the good days and not so good days.
Even with the unexpected twists and turns.
Life is beautiful and it is exciting.
What I have learned about that concept of free will, is that it applies much more to the way I choose to see life, rather than if the choices I’m making are “sins” or “not sins”.
Instead, free will seems to be more about the freedom to choose my perspective. The freedom for things in life to happen to me, and I decide rather or not to see it as positive or negative. The freedom to choose how I experience this life.
Things happen that are out of my control, all the time.
Even recently, with all of the things I am pursuing and accomplishing….most times things don’t go as planned.
When I post a FYE ass blog and only get 10 views.
When my new car tire is going to cost $85, and my paycheck is shorter than expected.
When I go from people swarming my inbox inquiring about my business, to no one paying me any attention at all.
It is completely up to me, it is my free will, to choose how I let that effect me.
I’ve learned that there is SOME positive in every situation.
Yeah, my blog post didn’t get views. But guess what? It’s still fye. And I can always use that as research to find out what my audience likes/don’t like because let’s face it, just because I think it’s fye doesn’t mean that everyone will. (I care about what my readers want to read!)
And yeah, my check is short so I don’t have that $85 dollars but….
actually, I have to think a little more on the positive in that one!
But I will find one. (LOL)
And yeah, no one’s asking for my blog post editing services right now but I still pursuing a business, at 21. Dude. I’m 3 steps ahead.
It’s so important to remember that my life is in my hands, and it’s up to me to exert the kind of energy that I want to be returned to me. The goal is to stay positive so that I can receive positivity.
And of course, some circumstances are very intense (like my car), and more difficult to move on from. That is also okay. I’m okay with taking a couple of hours, or a day before calling on “The Positivity Super Hero” to come kicking through my a front door.
But I never spend longer than a day sulking.
Sulking doesn’t fix anything at all.
“Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”
– Beyonce Knowles
I want us all to stop letting life beat us up and to start living life knowing that we’re deserving of good things. Because we are. You’re here, you’re breathing, you’re a creation of God…so you deserve good things.
