The most humbling experience is the one that is filled with pain. Not physical pain. Mental, spiritual, and emotional pain. Its humbling because its this massive rock in your path , that you have to come in contact with to be able to continue your journey. For you to be able to succeed past this rock, you have no choice BUT to not only realize its there, you have to touch it, and then go as far as moving it out of your path. Why can’t I just walk around it? That answer is all so simple. It’s because you are on the path that God has for you , so by you deciding to just walk off your path, you are telling that rock that it can take you off your straight and narrow walkway , and place a curve in your road. That’s not how warriors think. You have to embrace the pain. It’s so hard for me to come to terms with this even in my walk. I’m embracing the hurt now in my personal life. It’s not easy, but its possible. It’s possible because God offers a peace that the world can never offer me. John 14:27 ( look It up for yourself) To all my readers that don’t believe in God this message can still take a seat in your lap. Because pain is experience by everyone. But the peace that I am telling you about is the peace of God. The peace of understanding and guidance. It’s the peace that stays when the storm is there. Its the ability to know that everything is already being worked out. Its the faith that you know “this too will come to pass”. Once you realize that this peace is offered to you , who wouldn’t want to experience it. All it takes is a prayer and the ability to allow the weight to be taken away from you. But you have to release the burden in whole, not parts or partial. You have to take that rock that you pushed down your path into the hands of someone who is bigger than you. Gods hands. It’s not easy, I’m not going to lie to you about that. Its going to hurt. There will be tears. It will be a struggle. But when you make it down your journey and you are walking down the rest of your path and you turn around to see how far you’ve came. That way when you start continuing your journey and you see a friend in need you can help them get through by telling them your story, your pain, and offering peace. As always stay blessed. May you prosper. May love fill you. Peace be with you. And you continue to selfishlygrow.
I think the world is a place that is meant to be a big puzzle. It’s a big secret on how to do it. There is no precise way of living your life. Despite what others may think , everyone is trying to figuring it out for themselves and hand you left over pieces of THEIR PERSONAL map , that worked FOR THEM. I want you to remember that. BUT wait…. not so fast, don’t take that as not listening to wise counseling ( and I do mean WISE) from grandparents, parents, friend, siblings, and even that kind stranger. Take the advice and apply it where it fits, if it even fits. Sometimes learning on your own is what we choose to do; hard-headed ; partially. I also feel it’s because we have helpless thoughts, we don’t foresee the outcome, we just know based off that person that gave you advice experience. Which is sometimes enough. But a lot of the times it just doesn’t sit right with us. It’s the ticking of the possibilities and the hope that this time can be different. We always want the ending to be different for us , or the facts to not be facts when applying it to our scenario. We’re funny in that way trying to make rules apply where we see fit. That is why people choose to live the way they do. With and without regrets people do the things they do searching for these pieces of the map, trying to obtain what they feel will make them complete. For some it can be money , sex, religion, fame, approval, and so much more. The list can go on and on. People searching for this COMPLETE map and with every piece they receive they feel as if they are one step closer, but it doesn’t work that way. Everyone has the potential to be different. The ability to find out where they fit and don’t fit . The ability to have morals and standards or none at all. The ability to think for themselves or believe in society shaping them. This world is a big puzzle and this is my piece to you. As always stay with hope and peace. May prosperity find you , and ALWAYS selfishlygrow .
There is a sense of peace that comes from the weight of the world compressing your shoulders into your spine. It’s when the agonizing feeling about carrying the worlds burdens; and you’re just left in the destruction of the damage waiting until you can finally catch your first breath. Not any ordinary breath the long, slow, and deep one. Where you take every little piece of oxygen that surrounds your face and release it back into the world. Almost as if your say “take that universe”. That is the sense of peace that I’m referring too in this message to you. The process of finding that peace during the fall. The chaos, the destruction, the tears, the heartbreak. It having the faith to know that “this too will come to pass”. I know the cliché is when you fall get back up , and quiet frankly I’m glad that cliché doesn’t apply to this. That cliché is the exact opposite because I’m encouraging you to take that deep breath while you’re falling and to sit there after the fall. No need to rush and get back up just to “get knocked down seven times, get up the eighth”. Sometimes sitting in that spot and allowing the process to take place is the most you can do and is exactly what you are meant to do. It’s you coming to terms that this is happening and I can embrace this challenge, pain, obstacle, setback, because when you finally do get up ; you wont have to worry about falling a second time, when you get up this time you are taking that peace and trusting the process. IF you are asking what process that’s a GREAT question. It’s the question that will make you come back for my next blog to you. SO to all my new blogger readers, my fellow bloggies, and to anyone just stopping by out of curiosity. Tell the world that you are Growingselfishly . Love and peace may faith and hope follow you and prosperity be in your future.
