Too often

Too often we are afraid of not being that exact ‘fitted’ piece of the puzzle that remains glued in the fabric of relations

Too often we speak the wrong things in our head and grow angry with our heart because our emotions don’t align with our thinking

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.

– Oprah Winfrey

Too often we pace back and forth, wondering if we can fit in where we get in

Too often we inhale on numerous occasions, wondering why the heart is palpitating when we forgot to exhale and let go

Too often the thoughts of yesteryear will overpower us until we decide that risking the practice of vulnerability is probably worth it

Too often we choose to live and exist in solitude, not because we want to but because we choose it

Too often we confuse dusk for night because our mind has wandered so far in the past until today passed us by

Your willingness to look at your darkness is what empowers you to change.

– Iyanla Vanzant

Too often we’re concerned about what he or she may say or think but we fail to know that he or she lives in our head, rent free, because no one really knows our masquerade

Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.

– Oprah Winfrey

Too often our stomach aches, not of hunger, but from our inability to release the panic button that controlled us for many years

Too often we want to manage, monitor or control a situation, forgetting that a second becomes a minute that grows into an hour, turned days into months and years of missed opportunities because our ‘self’ was important for way too much

Never Claim a Cardiac Arrest in place of a Heart Attack

So often we treat the experiences of our severed relationships like a ‘cardiac arrest’ when the result is a heart attack – neither of which we want. Remember your heart hasn’t stopped (cardiac arrest)! It is the attack on your emotions that need acute care and proper healing.

No Cardiac Arrest Here!We must take time to make time like we can take time to treat, both of which may require a paradigm shift in our inner circles. And although this self-investment may appear too daunting of a task, the days that turn into weeks and months forward will have you wishing you did the inner work beforehand. Now some may say the fault belongs to someone else because of child-rearing circumstances or mental health reasons, which may weigh heavily on the side of accuracy. However, in the HERE and NOW of where we are today, the onus and accountability rest with us and our capability to acknowledge, seek, ask and submit for improvement.

Besides, your relationship with self is where the focus should shift because “If you are holding anyone else accountable for your happiness you’re wasting your time,” quotes Oprah Winfrey.  –What I know For Sure

I digress with this: We must sow a personal seed for inner growth.
