You may not complete everything that you have started and may certainly not end up where you had hoped.  But, each step, no matter how small, means that you can stand up and be counted.  You continue to rise ~ whether in strength and confidence or fear and doubt ~ you make an effort to put one foot forward.  Just that one act is a catalyst.   It may feel like stubborn fear, but to someone else, you are showing your resilience.  As you continue to use each day to begin again, you give yourself permission to feel or grieve, yet don’t let it keep you from moving forward one way or another.  If you are going, just keep going.

There are passions and interests that drive us to push forward, but our loss of privacy and increase of others’ judgment certainly causes doubt.

When writing online, there are those who will not speak to you, but believe that they “know” you from those things that you put out into the cybersphere.  Our beliefs and ideals can be present, but there is still fear from the anxieties of the past.  Those experiences affect the decisions we make in the future because we don’t want to go through the painful processes again.  Have enough bad experiences, and a strong memory, and the anxiety ramps up.

Be not the slave of your own past

It causes sensitive people to hold back or not dare to express at all.  Bullying in any form makes someone hide.  Yet, by the obvious existence of millions and millions of voices trying to be heard, the small self says “I am.  I do exist.”   If you have found your community and been privileged to develop strong relationships with kind and encouraging people, you have found a treasure.  Criticism and judgment tear people down and drain the spirit.

Knowing who you are and your priorities, including character and integrity, exist whether anyone understands it or not.   Isn’t it funny how many people don’t speak to another yet they fear what is being said online?  I guess that is another inkling of doubt as well.  We each have them, but reaching beyond hostile environments to seek out kinder climes is a basic need and critical to healthy mental and physical being.  It is scary to be vulnerable, but we find out quickly who does, and does not, deserve our time and attention.

Today, I was thinking about resilience as we choose to keep moving forward while things around us seem to be stagnant, or worse, moving in the opposite direction from where we want to be.

We are strong, but pushing forward takes more energy and courage than most people know or will choose to recognize.  It is easy to put someone down, talk behind his back, bully, follow the crowd, take the easy road.  Fear of suffering and experience holds us back from reaching for a better future.  But, it is far more difficult and noteworthy to stand up and say “This is not who I am.  I know my truth and those people don’t actually know me.  They are just critics, but they will not stand in my way.  I will not be defeated because that would bring them more joy than seeing me succeed.”

May you find inspiration, a ray of sunshine, a welcoming smile, a kind word, hope……

I saw this post this morning and loved the quote by Paul Coelho.


“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.” – Paulo Coelho I dare say that we are all afraid of suffering in one way or another – be it through pain, embarrassment, failure, or…

ray of light dungeon door

The gratitude of seeing the miraculous, a glimmer of light, in the darkness that has paralyzed mind and soul…..

Holding my breath before it turns away

A silent fervent prayer that the healing continues for the heart and spirit

and that the medication continues to work.

Loving yourself, or someone else, with depression breaks your heart.  Keep going.  Sending you prayers for healing, strength, and glimmers of light in the darkness.
