Day 193: Reclaim Your Power


I posted recently to my Facebook Community page regarding forcing yourself to let go of the memories and situations still causing you pain long after the event has ended. Many people engaged with the post. Which brings me here.

The human condition is self-persevering. We are all flawed in one way or another. Some of us have done the work and know our greatest flaws. For us, we work to minimize the adverse impact of these human internal defects on others.

There are those of us oblivious to our character defects. We are the most dangerous because we inflict pain on others completely unaware of the negative impact we leave on their lives and our own lives further perpetuating the cycle of pain.

Then there are those within our population who know our impact but inflict pain regardless as a way to reclaim what they believe has been taken from them. These are our narcissistic sociopaths. Beware of them, the blame is almost always external.

However, regardless of the type of person we encounter, the path forward is the same. Cut the anchor cord. No one and I repeat, there is no one capable of hindering your purpose, your happiness, your joy, or your peace unless you allow it. Sometimes our brains attempt to make a connection to a new situation because it resembles a past experience. Listen to it and do not assume it’s about the past situation.

For some, I recognize when I speak or write it comes off as aloof. However, that’s because you’re looking at the cake and not the ingredients and prep time it took to make the cake.

Getting to a place where nothing phases you requires purposeful, dedicated, and long-suffering actions to reach the place I often write from. This is not an overnight enlightenment. You can’t put it in a microwave and expect all to be well in two minutes and fifteen seconds. You have to do the work. And, you have to be honest. I mean completely honest. Honest about your part. Honest about their part. Honest about your true feelings about it all. Then and only then can you start to remove the bricks from your heart, your mind, and your soul.

I pray for peace on the reader of this post. You are strong. You are powerful. You control your thoughts or your thoughts will control you.

Be blessed and do the work.

Humbly submitted,

EYHCS

Day 164 : Detached


I had to become attached so I could detached.

I had to let go of what held me back, before I could receive what called me forward.

I let those misconceived ideas fall by the wayside.

I let those preconceived opinions sail into the abyss.

I let it go.

I let it be.

For I knew I was born free.

For I knew I would be again.

I simply let it go.

And, I simply let it be.

Detached.

Day 160: A Single Lightbulb


Be purposeful about what you feed your spirit. A single lightbulb can light an entire room. A cluster of positive thoughts can light your entire soul. Break either and both seep into darkness.

Day 145: Completion


Sometimes it’s not as much about the reason as it is about the season.

I love cooking metaphors.

When the cake rises, take the cake out of the oven.

The oven has served its purpose and if you leave the cake in too long, it will burn.

Now that the cake is out, let it cool, and turn the oven off.

We often spend so much time and energy analyzing the reason a season has ended, instead of enjoying the fruits of the decision bringing it to completion.

🥂 🍰 🍽

The cake is done.

Cut the cake.

Eat the cake.

Share the cake.

Or save pieces of the cake for later, but the key is – the cake is done regardless of the steps taken to make it rise.

The reason may satisfy some embedded curiosity, but it will not un-bake the cake.

Day 140: Observed Revelations


I observe.

When it becomes too much, I release what I have observed.

I release what I have noticed.

I release what I have felt.

I release what I have heard.

I release what does not belong to me.

It is the only way I can truly remain free.

Thus, I must let it be.

For the branches of this tree are not for me.

I recognize, I was the witness and not the participant.

Day 59: Embedded Favor


This is why I love the story of Jesus. An unknown child from a perceived unknown town. Grows up with an unknown identity. And is revealed to be the known savior.

Poked and prodded he hung on a cross. The unknown savior was not shocked at their behavior. Yet, his resolve never wavered.

For he knew he had embedded favor.

Day 51: Visualized Victory


Close the door.
Shut the blinds.
This is a sign it’s time to unwind.

Focus on the obstacle.
Notice how the air moves around it.
Seek it’s tender side.

Calm the noise.
Inhale the purpose.
Exhale the excuse.

Feel your heart beat.
See the obstacle move.
Watch the path clear.

Now, you know you have nothing to fear.
For victory is near.

Day 46: Embedded Solution


Developing a fix without including the source is like writing a novel without any words.

When looking for solutions involve the people affected by the challenges.

And, watch the challenges become accomplishments.

Day 34: The Battle


It is the ultimate internal battle.
To speak or not to speak.
To react or not to react.
To attack or not to attack.
To respond or not to respond.

It’s the battle spiritually and mentally successful people win most days.

The battle of inner determination.
The battle of prescriptive blinders.

Performers understand the battle well.

Regardless of the crowd’s response,
the show must go on.

In spite, of the sideline antics, you still have a purpose to accomplish.

Dogs will bark.
But a bark isn’t a bite.
So why disrupt your flight?
Trust and know everything will be alright.

If the barking dog isn’t your dog, keep on moving and let the owner answer the call.

Day 16: Chartered Ship


You know the conclusion. The odds are in your favor. Why fear your path across the ocean?

No matter what happens. No matter who leaves. No matter who stays. No matter what falls. No matter who rises. The victory is already yours.

Uncharted waters still follow a current. Use your lessons and fellow shipmates to ride the waves to paradise.

Day 10: Purposeful Madness


It was worth every step.
Not the image of who I hoped to be.
But the reality of who I am.

Every rock overturned.
Every stone moved aside.
The madness of self-discovery begins with self-forgiveness.

Forgiveness for who I thought I was.
Forgiveness for who I really am.
Forgiveness for who I portrayed you to be.
Forgiveness for who you painted me to be.

The wary traveler finally found a home.
And, it isn’t under a glass snow-filled dome.

My canvas is a masterpiece.
The colors collide.
The scenery pops.
No one gets the chance to draw lots.

Yes, I’ve traveled through madness to find me.

In exactly the place I needed to be.

I am now truly set free.

Day 323: Coordinated Elevation


You ever feel yourself shift. I am not referring to a physical movement, but a metaphysical one. It happens when the dots literally and figuratively start connecting almost imperceptibly.

One seemingly insignificant event propels you into action. Each subsequent action confirms the previous one. And, then it happens, coordinated elevation.

It is in that moment your vision expands and your knowledge awakens. Like a well-oiled machine, you began to level up. The shifting is so smooth, it’s almost imperceptible. Yet, your spiritual awareness allows you see the navigation happening as you move pass each level.

The skies open, the band plays, and the performers sings, it’s shifting time. Get ready, get ready, get ready!

If you haven’t trained your metaphysical being, you will miss it! If you have, your bags are already packed! So, lace-up your cross fits & enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Day 322: Strategic Expectations


You cannot get something from something that does not exist…I went to a buffet because I wanted O.J. I located grapefruit juice. It clearly stated grapefruit on the label. Why am I then surprised to find I’m holding a cup of grapefruit juice, instead of the orange juice I wanted?

It’s not the buffets fought. It had no part in my decision. The buffet table simply presented me with options. I looked at the labels and still choose the very thing I did not want or need.

It’s an open book test and the answers are highlighted.

Day 319: Reinforced Destiny

Day 318: Twisted Redemption


The squandered chance. The sacrifice made. The nerves twisted. The bloodshed seeped through wounded bones.

Flash forward a thousand years. Everyone give your loudest cheer. The past is now in the rear. As evident by the single tear.

Yet, you query what has changed. How have you rearranged? Still wearing the same soiled skins. Still refusing to make amends.

The cost paid. The memories raid. The pain sears through chartered veins. No longer do you ride these lanes. For fear of releasing the pent-up reins.
