“Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving; we get stronger and more resilient.” – Steve Maraboli
I can recount the indelible humble beginnings of running hills until the sun went down. The old me was gone. My mentality was changing. It was a therapeutic regime that repeatedly amplified my “why” over and over. I had found an innate niche. A niche that only revealed more layers of durability every time it was tested. To have been in a position to fail introduced to me a callous nature. Circumstances may dictate where we are but we dictate what we become under those conditions. Naysayers and critics along the way are inevitable; there’s no reasoning with them. Chasing and fulfilling a passion everyday? Now that’s better time well spent! We can become consistent only when we let inconsistent factors around us go. Things that have no connection in revitalizing our spirits. Stay grounded and let all else run it’s course. The key is having the mindfulness to propel onward with the right intentions. That intent in which we fuel our force field of energy; energy which returns back to us. Practice celebrating in doing more of what’s stimulating and be fully unbothered in reacting to opposing opinions. It is an eye opening depth of clarity. It’s the direction in which we are headed that is freeing in itself. We can deliver a better quality of life, to ourselves, living in our own realm of faith. Our movements and what we choose to stand for is the true fuel to our fire. Line it up, catch that second wind, and get after it!
