"Most people are living in an illusion based on someone else's beliefs." This was a sentence in a book Im reading that really stuck out to me. (Book reference: You are a badass, how to stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life.) Great read by the way if you are indeed a Badass - a good one of course, like a super human being hero type of guy or gal, with a desire to make the world a better place.... and I think you are.
Back to the book - How many people ARE living in an illusion of what someone else told them (you) that they (you) could do or be in this life, and what if you believed it?
The scary part is we are all living in our own bubble of reality, so what's true for you may not be true for me. We judge everything on what we know, which is our own reality of which is made up mostly by the people around us telling us who we are. Do we buy into that belief or is there a higher purpose for YOU?
If you're hanging around with positive, amazing, God filled people then rock on! If not - know that you are a child of God first, which is highly important, and you are uniquely awesome in your talents, skills and an amazing representation of you - the real you with your quirks and all. You - yes you - the one who has a purpose and calling on his/her life that you need to step into.
How about this? Lets choose to love ourself, know our worth, and not give a crap about what anyone else thinks about me or you. Deal? DEAL!
Your time is too precious to waste on such nonsense. What matters is what's true for you. Everything else is just someone's perception of reality.
Rock on my awesome friend. Focus on this:
- Appreciate YOU - there's no one like you - never has been and never will be.
- Give yourself some love! Positive affirmations work. Believe it - feel it.
- Do things you love that fulfill you.
- Replace those negative thoughts with positive ones.
- Don't compare to anyone - remember you are you - why bother compare.
- Forgive yourself - we all make mistakes and likely continue to make them. It's ok - we are a work in progress.
Today is a new day. A day to step into peace, healing, forgiveness, light, purpose, calling and freedom. Welcome to a new vision and direction. A new path.
