Exhale the Bullshit

Make no mistake. I am where I am today because of each and every single thought I have ever thought. And you can trust me on this. I have thought plenty of thoughts. Some constructive; some destructive. Some have torn me down and others have built me up. Why does it always seem so much easier to be hard on oneself than loving? Either way – no-one got me to where I am today but me. So, logic dictates, if I am not happy with where I am at, then I need to change the way I think. This is not always an easy journey. In fact, it can be downright painful, conflicting and energy consuming. But at some point, you and I, we have to stop fighting our thoughts. We simply just have to be aware of them, and then we have to be willing to say what if ….

If you are not happy where you are – change it. Change the way you think about it. Get up and go for a walk. Get outside. Get your mind away from the things that are hindering your process of change and learn to just be. We are not alone in our pain. We are not alone in our wanting to change. We are not alone. This time – it’s got to be for me. I desire to be free – free to be me.

Well said in your song This Time – Paul Luftenegger Click here to listen to the song on Spotify:

I’ve been lost
Too many times to count my tears
Oh my fear, has paralyzed me
Through my bones
And I need you to know

That this time its gotta be for me
And this time I’m gonna be free
Its gotta be, its gotta be for me
This time I’m gonna be free
Free to be me

Don’t be ashamed
Of who you really are (of who you really are)
There are dark days before your paradise

Can ever come true
And my dreams are coming true
For you

‘Cause this time its gotta be for me
And this time I’m gonna be free
Its gotta be, its gotta be for me
This time I’m gonna be free
Free to be me

And this time I’ve gotta know
Its been brewing inside of me
And this time
The sun’s gonna shine on me forever

For the first time in my life
I’m burning the brightest
The bright light
The bright light
The bright light
Is shining in my eyes

‘Cause this time its gotta be for me
This time I’m gonna be free

Its gotta be, its gotta be for me
This time I’m gonna be free
Free to be me

Now, I don’t know about you, but music is one sure way to shift one’s emotions. So – here is the truth. A truth bomb, if you will. I remember watching Eat Pray Love so many times, that it literally consumed me. The story. The musings. The setting. Everything. The movie just swept me along on its emotional wings of release. But somehow, something in the movie took a hold of my thought pattern – and it went something like this. Yeah, I guess I am a bit like Liz Gilbert. I guess I do have to lose it all to get it all back a thousand fold. But, what if …. What if I had never seen the movie? What if I had never had that thought. Would I be in the same situation and place as I am now? I doubt it. You see, we get caught up in the musings of others. that we forget to forge our own truth. We forget that we get to choose each and every single day just who we are and where we want to be.

But, and here is the proverbial BUT – your life does not have to play out like anyone else’s. You have to claim your independence of freedom – to be you! To live your life the way that YOU want to live YOUR life. And then live it. I have learnt this lesson. And yet, the lesson seems like a comforting companion, that has been with me all the while. I have seen things unfold in my life – simply by my thought projection. My thoughts create my reality. My thoughts create my destiny. My thoughts create me.

And so today, let’s declare – our thoughts control and govern everything in our lives. And just for today, be aware of the thoughts you think. Be aware of the love, or the hate, you show yourself. And then start adopting the thoughts that build you up, and for goodness sake – exhale the bullshit!

Let Love In ….

Onwards and Upwards!
