In the words of my grandfather ” You can change the World, but you cannot save it”. I woke up this morning with his words in my head for some reason, and it’s the only thing I could think of. We too often get in bad situations, and I mean choosing the wrong job, selecting the wrong group of friends, and sometimes even choosing the wrong mates.
When your focus minded your on the path to greatness, the path at which you feel like everything is falling into place. Then something happens that knocks you off track…. I felt I had to share this message with you all because it’s vital that we take more time for ourselves.
It’s essential that we take the necessary steps to achieving the better us for our future. I love the words my grandfather spoke so often because they have become my guidance. Sometimes we are so focused on other people we tend to forget about our self.
We get in the everyday motions of caring for others, doing for them, providing for them; we lose the ability to care for the most important person in our world ourselves. I’m not telling you all to become self-absorbed or anything like that I am saying take care of you first make sure you are exactly where you want to be, invest in yourself, take the time to not only love yourself but figure out things about yourself.
The worst thing you can do is define yourself through others. Defining yourself through the perception of someone else will leave you broken and unhappy. I say choose yourself first and decide to help others second.
If it’s your God given gift, don’t stop helping others due to the people that burned you. Unfortunately, that will happen, but you can’t let that break you. In the words of Maya Angelou “Try to live your life in a way that you will not regret years of useless virtue and inertia and timidity. Take up the battle, take it up! It’s yours; this is your life this is your world.”
I will leave you with a few words, ” You cannot save the world, but you can change it.” The world is yours; sometimes we feel alone, and that’s why we fail when the time comes to choose ourselves. I urge you all to live your life in a way you’re not only implementing growth, change, and inspiration in life, but I encourage you to live your life in such a manner you inspire others to take up the battle, of life for themselves be strong. Stay blessed, have faith. Until next time….
