🍀I have been waiting for the PERFECT time to post this story… the PERFECT time is NOW…But, in my own Hurricane, I’ve managed to lose my previously written words and story that I had written months ago!
Why do I want to share today?
1.) 🙏Hardships: Through hardships, I was again gently reminded of how an AMAZING song and the impact of others (whether they know it or not) can help one get through a moment, a day, or a lifetime in a better way!✨🍀
2.) 💐Suicide: Someone VERY close to me recently decided to seriously attempt to take their own life. It had a profound impact on me… Realizing that we need to continue to come together to help those in need. Well knowing that at some point in time, EVERYONE needs help, support, love, and unconditional understanding. Truthfully, prevention is the key, because in my heart, suicide is NOT an option. Everyone has so many gifts to share with this amazing world and others… Sometimes it just takes a little time to discover them. I can assure you that with time, each hardship can teach one very important lessons of life…
3.) 🌈 Move On: Despite our own hardships and storms, we need to constantly discover new ways to help us through with the ultimate challenge of moving on to the greater gifts of life!!!
4.)💫✨ When I write, it helps me refocus and enjoy life in another way… Again! Writing is almost as great as meditation… It helps me re-center my life and my soul.
So, I will try to re-tell my story knowing that I don’t need to say too many words because Katy Perry really says it all in the song, “Fire Works” that I will link!
😢 Bottom line… I was in tears… Crying on the floor in my basement bathroom.
My life I felt was a mess! My house was a mess! I was behind in everything! I was in the middle of a non-stop downward spiral!
Financially… We were losing everything, the economy had hit rock bottom and we part of it! Emotionally, I couldn’t seem to pull myself back together. No matter what I did I continued to get worse and worse!
At this exact moment in time, my daughter walks into the bathroom… I knew I should pull myself together…, but, I couldn’t. It wasn’t in me… No matter what anyone had ever said to me… I couldn’t do it… I didn’t have enough energy… Even for my daughter.
😢I just sat on the ground and cried… And cried… And cried…
Retrospectively, why did I perceive my life to be in such a huge downward spiral… But, really my life was and is amazing. Why couldn’t I see this at that time??? Why was I mentally so weak?
“Mommy, let’s go outside and play,” my daughter responded.
Nope… I couldn’t pull out of it… I sat there and cried and cried.
Suddenly, my young daughter, started to sing “Fireworks” by Katy Perry… Over and over again!
Tears rolled down my eyes… “Yes, I am paper thin… Drifting through the wind!!!”
As she sang it over and over… I realized something so important…
Yes… This is a moment in time that is extremely difficult… But, Yes… I am beautiful, amazing, and a unique “Firework”!!! Ready to learn and grow from hardships… I had to immediately choose to change my mind set.
✨But… “Only I could ignite my own spark!”💫🌈
I suddenly stood up… My daughter walked over to me and wiped the tears from my eyes…
I realized that I had to CHOOSE to be stronger then my own Storm… And CHOOSE to create my own happy and peaceful LIFE!!
✨Most important was for me to learn and grow from my hardships… And, to CHOOSE to be a better person and ENJOY and APPRECIATE the GREATNESS that I already had!!!✨
If I focused on ALL the hardships… My life was Hardships!
✨🍀If I focused on ALL the Great… My life was GREAT!💫✨🍀
It was up to me!!!
🎉And at THIS EXACT Moment in time I decided to make a 360 degree turn and change my life for that day! Realizing that I will always have ups and downs… But knowing that is up to ME to choose how I will respond and ultimately experience my life! 🎉
✨What I have learned is that for each hard time that I am able to get myself back up again… The next time is easier… Easier because I have learned from before and know there are so many different tools to help me! I trust myself and the universe to give me what I need!✨
So, today… I encourage you… With all of my heart💝… To REALLY LISTEN with ALL of your SOUL to Katy Perry’s ABSOLUTE and AMAZING song, “FIREWORKs”!!
Be honest with yourself! I can assure YOU, that YOU are a “FIREWORK” and that YOU should let your FIRE SHINE!!!!
💫YOU ARE PERFECT and AMAZING just the way YOU ARE!!!💫
✨With Much Love and Light to Katy Perry and her ENTIRE crew! Sincerely, thank you for helping me change my life with your work!!!
