Silence has a voice too, if you’re tuned in to hear it.
I put the word ‘weakest’ in quotations to stress importance of the word. We often feel broken down, beaten up, and spit out by the rigors that we go through day to day. Sometimes we’re deconstructed to a point where we feel like we’re holding ourselves together by the thinnest of threads. That’s where real strength comes into play.
So often, what seems like a weak link is really perseverance; it takes a lot to hold it all together, to remain standing in the face of the strong winds that blow our way. I write a lot about positivity and moving forward, because I really believe in the power of that. If you’ve ever felt like a weak link, don’t let it defeat you. Stay strong. Hold that shit together. What can appear as weakness could be seen as strength. It’s all in the perception.
Why does it seem like it’s easier to break stuff than to rebuild it? One of the easiest things to do is sabotage your spirit; the dismantling of confidence, self esteem, and self worth really just takes a few hard hitting comments. The damage is done after that.
We often beat ourselves up more than anyone else that we know.
But with anything, there’s always hope. There’s always a day where we can look at our lives and ourselves and say “enough”, even if that day comes time and again. So pick it up, get up, and get to moving in the right direction. You can do it.
Don’t be afraid to find your voice. Find it, develop it, and put it to work. With so much going on in the world right now, it’s important to have a voice – and to use it.
Kids don’t expect their dreams to come crashing down in flames – dreams should be an obstacle free zone. Dream freely.
Ultimately, we tell the mirror what to say. Whether we love ourselves or hate ourselves, the mirror only speaks into existence the ideas that we feed it.
Sometimes, the simple beauty holds the most power.
Sometimes it’s the simple things that bring us the most peace.
If you’re thinking about a goal, there is no ‘perfect’ time. Why not right now? Just a thought.
I’ve been trying to drill my way through a massive slab of writer’s block lately, so here’s a little random word sketching that I scribbled out to get the wheels turning. Thanks for reading.
