PREPARE YOUR EYES TO READ AND YOUR HEART TO RECEIVE AS YOU TAKE IN THE WORDS THAT LOOK TO CHANGE LIVES, RENEW HEARTS, AND OPEN MINDS. We can all agree that life is not fair, no matter who you are. Some come from homes with both parents, single parents, or no parents. Some have lived in lovely homes, big homes, tiny homes, or no homes. Some have had money, little money, or no money. Some were cared for and loved, while others have struggled to find themselves due to no love, affection, or attention. The worst is the people who received the unwanted touch, whisper or feeling from someone they knew and trusted or from a stranger. Just imagine for a second if you were to let go of the things that happened to you in the past that you can't change and forgive the people who wronged you? How different would your life be? Would you have more confidence, be open to relationships, possibly have better relationships, be more compassionate and have empathy for others' situations, or have a more extraordinary passion for living and helping others. Before our teenage years, we develop a defensive strategy to learn to cope with our shortcomings, disappointments, rejections, and abuse. Unbeknownst though, holding onto these negative feelings is just like having a scab or wound on our body. The scab or wound is prone to infection when not addressed, ignored, unattended, or neglected. We intentionally sabotage ourselves from something greater within our lives by holding on to shame, defeat, and hurt. Not taking ownership of our lives and shifting the blame onto others reminds us of what has damaged us in the past. As the infection spreads, it infiltrates our gifts, talents, workplace, relationships, and every other area in our life. My friend realized that she no longer wanted to be infected by her past. She realized that she was more than her past and sought to silence the naysayers, backstabbers, and gossipers. She is now in the process of writing a book entitled "The Rebirth Of A Queen." She discusses her traumatic youth through adulthood and explains how her rebirth has made her more robust as a parent, Sailor, friend, and mentor. We must all find ways to effectively process and eradicate the toxicity of our past traumas to experience total health and wholeness. Asking for assistance, learning positive interventions, and forgiving will foster healing and allow us to address the hurt and heal the wound that leads to personal disappointments, failed relationships, loss of financial wealth, or abusive and mental calamities. Learning and understanding who you are is the key to accelerating your life instead of just accepting and acclimating to it. Cleansing yourself of your past will allow you to "LIVE" your best life and experience something that you never thought possible due to your history. So ask yourself, "What can I let go within my life, and what would my life be like without the extra weight upon my shoulders?" #SPEAK2MYHEART
