Unstoppable

“She was unstoppable, not because she did not have failures or doubts, but because she continued on despite them.”  -Beau Taplin

It has been over a month since my last post, and I have come to the conclusion that regardless of what I am dealing with, people come to read my blog, and a few rely on it. So putting aside myself, I am back, not because life has been easy, but I want to feel unstoppable. I have put so much pressure on myself these past couple of months, that I realized I needed to ease up on myself. How often do we not know what to do next? If we would all just learn to ease up, we could see how much more we could accomplish. When we are constantly forcing ourselves, the forcing ends up turning into fear. With fear in our way, it is impossible for the right things to evolve. Fear makes us question our motives. We have to train ourselves to learn a different way by relaxing and letting go. The best way is to approach something differently. When fear creeps up on us, acknowledge it, feel it and then let it leave you. You must always participate naturally. Sometimes our minds are cluttered, and we try harder to concentrate, but it is these times we need to ease up on ourselves, so we can truly see how unstoppable we really are. See how much more you accomplish when you just let go.

Checkmate!

We spend so much time trying to untangle the knots or rearrange the puzzle pieces in our life daily. We make each strategic move as if we are pieces on a chessboard, trying to protect our king and queen. Did you ever think that maybe we are the reason that the pieces won’t fall into place? We find ourselves waiting for our opponent, a bad job, a mean boss, a bad relationship, an unhealthy lifestyle, a disease, to make their next move. Based on their move, we sit and analyze every possible retaliation they could make on our next move. Sometimes we lose sight of our king, and make a spurious choice, and we are in checkmate. We look to take back our move, and think over and over again how we were blinded. There is always an excuse when we find ourselves in checkmate. Either we spent too much time analyzing or we acted on impulse, both decisions could bring us to the same point. You will never know which one is the right choice unless you try. You see the thing about checkmate is it brings you to an end, to begin a new beginning. The pieces return back, and you have a chance at a fresh new approach.  So don’t try for the perfect move, for we don’t know in the end if it will ever simply be “perfect.”IMG_20140227_215036
