Put it ALL in perspective.

The hardest moments of your life will be when you’re transitioning from one version of yourself to another.

The pressure of personal and professional advancement will get heavier. It’ll be as if a large piece of cement has been laid on your chest and as time passes, it gets heavier and heavier. As this is happening, your tolerance for certain things, things that may not have bothered you before, will become unbearable. You’re losing oxygen and now you’re seconds away from panicking. To reduce the pressure you have to either decrease your altitude immediately or ride it out until you get to your destination.

Ride it out.

With altitude, some people and things are just going to flat-out die: Relationships, friendships, habits, old desires etc.

As things begin to fall off, proceed with your pursuit and continue to go higher. The weight that needs to fall off, will. Don’t be afraid of a little chaos. Let the chaos relieve the pressure as you go higher.

When you’re walking in a life of vision and purpose, you have to come to the realization that not everyone is going to be down with what you’re doing, and you just have to be okay with that.

It’s a long narrow and winding road for sure. But, I guarantee you it’s a road worth taking.

Put what you want into perspective.

Go all in for what you know to be true and allow yourself to be everything good, bad, and/or ugly when necessary. All of it contributes to the making of your journey.

This is life. Pressure and all.

Life isn’t happening to you, but for you.

Are you wondering why you’re not in the place you expected to be?

The world, your world, does not LACKING anything.
Meaning everything in your life is a reflection of who YOU are (as a person), and what you can handle and/or give to others – all of your decisions, habits, behaviors, subconscious beliefs etc.
 
It’s the reason you’re single, married, a mom/dad, wealthy or not.
 
Quick example. Have you even seen or watched the show Charmed? It was one of my favorite tv shows a couple of years back. According to Wikipedia, “Charmed is about a trio of sisters, The Charmed Ones, the most powerful good witches of all time, who use their combined “Power of Three” to protect innocent lives from evil beings such as demons and warlocks etc.”

Phoebe, one of the 3 sisters who make up the Charmed Ones, is the youngest sister. She’s the one who, out of all 3, 110% LOVE the responsibly of saving innocents, sacrificing the opportunity to live a normal life.
 
Phoebe is 95% of the time portrayed as the weaker sister (in her eyes anyways) because she doesn’t have an active power. Premonitions is her power. Phoebe complains all the time about it, and her sisters always assure her of her value.
 
Because Phoebe is SO INSECURE about her power aka her value, demons ALWAYS prey on her. Always!
 
Now, Phoebe is already a Charmed One. She makes up the holy trinity for Christ’s sake! Without her, there is no such thing as The Charmed Ones or the POWER of 3 etc.

 

Are you catching my point?

She is already everything. Her insecurity, which therefore creates the illusion of lack, is self-imposed. All of which spirals a TON of challenges, issues and circumstances to PROVE (to herself, mind you) THAT SHE IS ALREADY COMPLETE. #theprocess
 
In retrospect, that is what life does to us. 
Therefore if you’re wondering if you’re not in the place you expected to be in your life, look within. Ask yourself, what am I not realizing about myself, causing me to believe I’m without?

Reflections for 2015

It’s 7:17 p.m. here in San Juan, PR and I’m taking a moment to reflect and privately salute life, the future, and the people who choose, daily, to share a space in my world.

And yes I’m on the balcony. 😊

All I can say is, maybe not today or tomorrow, but not for long. The dream, my passion, has arrived.

Remember what you have is better than nothing at all. So, be grateful for what you have.

Whatever you want in life, go get it! I’ve gotten my own. So, cheers! #appreciation #gratitude #love #purpose #passion #existence #sharemyworld
