What people don’t tell you about final destinations?

Sadness and loneliness; its a feeling or emotion that doesn’t leave you for too long.

Just when you feel like your getting yourself together and your moving forward, it comes back to say hello. It introduces itself into your life, as though it was never there. You begin to feel low..sad and dwell on your past. Wondering what if and what am I?

You are suddenly overwhelmed with emotions.

Did anyone say that being a survivor means youwouldn’t feel any type of pain?

Did anyone say it would be easy?

Yes, I said easy………..we want life to be a smooth highway with little or no obstacles and everything within our reach. But, in reality, that never happens. Because life is meant to be a journey, not a destination. Sometimes its your journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.

The moment you realise this, the more inclined you’ll be to moving forward and never settling for less. The more you learn, the more you increase your knowledge. The more you increase your knowledge the more open you will become. The more open you become the more power you will have!

I realised life was a journey when I was finishing college and moving onto university; a life event….one which was unexpected but made me realise that life is not a destination. I began to ask myself am I where I want to be? am I happy? have I achieved all my goals? and is my relationship with God good?

The answer to all of these questions was no.

So why is it that we must rush rush rush to a destination, which we may never reach or, may not exist.

Many of us ignore our blessings, we ignore the things which are important and have a significance in our lives, whilst in pursuit of the things you want to achieve.

What happens along the way is that the things we do have, become dust and begin to disappear just like the foam of the ocean. What was once there, is now no more. We lose relationships with our family, friends and colleagues. We lose interest in any activities once enjoyed all because we were so focused on a “final destination”.

It’s only time that you enjoy the journey, and smell the roses along the way along with observing the beautiful scenery.

If you haven’t already done so, then make sure you embark on your ship, because you have a beautiful journey ahead of you.

Stay beautiful and

be bold hide less.

Meaningless

via Daily Prompt: Meaningless

Meaningless– ˈmiːnɪŋləs – can be defined as,  having no meaning or significance 

It is a word that is said many times, but the meaning isn’t given much attention.

We all have days when we feel like everything is meaningless. Your job, family, friends and life.

Days that feel like they are just carrying so much pain, hurt, sadness and work;

Other days that make you feel like you’re on top of the world.

I have gone through days that contained so much pain, so much hurt and so much anguish. I still go through these days. Days where I have questioned, not just the meaning of life, but the meaning of myself, I. Wondering who I am? and what I’m doing? Days where I have just felt complete and utter emptiness, wondering why life is so meaningless…

But, I have concluded that, everything in life has a meaning.

Everything.

From the tiny ant that you see on the ground, to the shining star that glows at night.

From the the breathe of air that you inhale to the sounds of silence.

Everything on this earth has a meaning. It has a meaning to each and every single one of us.

You don’t have to look far for that meaning, all you have to do is look in the mirror.

Look at your reflection.

Because, you are the meaning of life. You are wonderful, amazing, beautiful, courageous and strong. Everything you have gone through, all that hurt and pain, all those negative comments people have said to you, the way they’ve treated you is what has given you meaning. It has given you life because without all of the struggles you’ve gone through, you wouldn’t be the person you are today. You wouldn’t be standing here so strong.         You wouldn’t be the reflection. 

Remember, whatever you think or feel is ‘meaningless’, only arises from yourself and the judgements that you have made. All you have to do is change the way you view life, change the way you view yourself and see that change.

Trust and beboldhideless.
