Stand in the light

Moments like this give every woman an opportunity to decide what kind of person she wants to be deep down. No matter what face we present to the world, no matter what pain we are hiding, no matter what struggle we have been through. We know our worth. We know what we are capable of. We know who we are, who we will always be and we have a choice. We can hide in the shadows or we can stand in the light. -Scandal ”

Gladiators

Life can be so frustrating at times, and when our life is filled with hard times, we look around and see others dancing along their path. We see others getting help along the way, and then we turn and see ourselves feeling left out. We look at what we’ve been through, and judge it in a negative light. We look to see the people who weren’t there, and we look to see that the world wasn’t on our side. If we open our eyes though, not only have be given the gift of strength threw these impeccable hard times, but if we just open ourselves up, we can see all the direction, and support we have been given by the world to tune in with ourselves and grow. When we search for one person to resolve our hard times, we miss out on all our own personal gifts. Guidance comes when you trust that the world will be on your side, help comes in those friendships you build, help comes in a smile from a stranger on a bad day, and help comes when you feel the inspiration of others. But mostly importantly, help comes from within. Achieving nothing, is a simple task, it is an empty life, and requires no struggle or pain. Hard times make us gladiators, they provide armor for future battles, and although, hard times open our eyes up, they also guard our hearts. Instead of gazing around at others who could merely be rested and achieving nothing, be a gladiator, and breed only success.

“We do what needs to be done and we don’t question why. We put the personal to the left. We don’t get to have feelings. That’s the job. Gladiators don’t get to have feelings. We rush into battle. We’re soldiers. We get hurt in the fight we suck it up and we hold the line, and we don’t question.”
