The age of social media where we are all wearing mask online and offline.
Everything posted on instagram and facebook where someone is in front of a camera and is all a lie. The reason I say this is because we have put on filters and adjusted our camera to make it look real.
We fake a smile and position our head a certain way and add filter to it that we need to put on a show. Everything is made up everything is fake we love the attention because we are missing something inside.
Something we are searching for something we know is missing. We put on a grand show and make it look as though everything is fine but deep inside we are alone. We live in a world where a mask cannot be taken off without a show.
All these selfies and still I cannot tell which one is actually real. But if we look into the person eye we would see the unhappiness deep inside. We cover it up and look forward to our next selfie yet we never realize time is sweeping by and we never notice we are out of time.
All this time we was busy in the moment of taking away selfies and wearing a mask we never realize something was leaving us behind. Time was not waiting anymore and while we was not in the moment and letting others know the real you.
Time was slipping by when we look back at those selfies we realize, what we posted at the time was never really us inside.
Well the first step is a choice. A choice is put in front of you and depending on your decision you either move forward or stay stuck.
That choice can also make or break you. This can be a choice to break the tradition, beliefs or routine. It is going to shake your whole life up. A safe choice is not a choice as this will keep you stuck but you will feel a sense of security. As some would say to themselves. But, making a bold choice can be daughting and end up being the best decision of your life.
This can change the whole game for you. It can switch a few things in life and sometimes, we are not ready for some of it. Unfortunatly, life does not wait on us and if you have not notice time does not as well. Every day we get older and hopefully wiser based on our choices.
We learn and grow from a choice and at times it is that bold choice. That helps us mold the way forward. Decisions are never a cup of tea for me and I never envy anyone who has to make them. But I do know when someone is torn between two choices they really have to think deeply on what lies ahead. Holding back from the choice they know can help them can be unhealthy as progress may never happen within their life.
From my experience especially recently I have found the better choice is always the bolder choice but the feelings of making the choice can be tough. There can be consequences that I may have to face and of course we know the famous disappointment we have to embrace.
But in the end a choice is still left to make and most of the times. It is better to go with the choice that scares you because that is the one that will help grow, expand and embrace the fullness of life. After all isnt that what we are on earth for …… to live.
So, why are so many of us not doing this including myself,holding back.
We are all unique and one of a kind. We were all born with different gifts, talents, sizes and colors. We are one and we are all human.
We are all created for a special purpose and our lives all have different paths to pass. No one person goes threw the same life journey and no one will ever go threw the same path in life.
Each one of us have a life path and each one of us have a time span on this earth. No one person is the same, even if you maybe a twin.
We all have different likes, goals, styles and views on life. No one person is ever the same. That is one of the many beauties and wonders of this life.
We are in a world full of many different people, from many different nations. Each of us have a different culture, heritage, view and mindset but one thing we all have in common is that we are all one.
We have the same red blood and under the same moon, stars and sun. That is the beauty of life. That is the beauty of the magic and awe our Universe has us on.
Our trees, mountains, birds, cats and dogs was all left for us to nature and take care of diligently. Each life is a gift and each moment on this world is a gift to us.
I am who I am to manifest and bring forth the best of myself to help build a better planet for our children and grandchildren to live on. I know who I am and I want to help bring love and peace to all.
I am who I am and you are who you are.
Let us be the best versions we are meant to be in this world.
It may hurt but in the long run it will strengthen and change you. As we begin to look into the new year ahead and reflect on 2018, let us get the strength to declutter anything in our lives that no longer serves you.
The bad habits.
The toxic people.
The negative thinking.
Living to others expectations and not ours .
Not speaking up.
These are a few things many allow to control their lives. For me I have to gain the strength not speaking up, settling and trying to meet everyone expectations. It hasn’t done me any good to this day. We all have something we need to let go and find the strength to move on from today.
Today’s World can throw anyone over the edge if we allow this to happen.
Expectations and comparisons are two of the biggest pains of today’s world. Each day someone is faced with comparison to someone who we think has it all put together. While others are put under pressure of reaching other people expectations which can be unrealistic or become unbearable for many.
It makes many wonder why depression, violence and hate is so strongly existence in our world. Many have become frustrated with there day to day lives they cannot stop to think of another feelings. Many cannot even stop to help a neighbor or worse yet a stranger because we are so caught up in our lives. Trying to meet today’s world expectations and comparing ourselves to almost everyone who seems to have it all put together. When in reality non of us have it figured out because our world changes daily and we have to change our outlook at our lives.
We have to change in small ways that can build a better world. Changes start with each one of us, first accepting we all have different life paths. This will help us stop comparing ourselves to one another. Second small change can be setting our own expectations and letting others know what we can contribute to change situations around us.
Speak up and let your voice be heard even if it stirs up a room. In the end you will be heard for your views and set a tone in any situation that can allow you to have some control.
One of my hopes for 2019 is for peace, happiness and love within our world. Many of us are surrounded by so much hate we have lost ourselves. So many have become so drawn out by our lives we can no longer smile, enjoy a meal with family or find our inner child within us anymore. We have become so caught up in wars, politics and negativity. No wonder so many suffer with anxiety and depression rates are so high around the world.
