Protect Your Light

No human can save me from alcoholism.

No human can “fix” me.

No human can love me enough if I can’t love myself first.

No one can be good enough for me until I believe that I am good enough.

Untreated alcoholism looks like addiction to tragedy and suffering.

It looks like addiction to drama and running from everything that is good and full of light.

I was warned about a spiritual sickness where some people would suck the light and energy from me.

I have experienced this.

It’s something unconscious that happens. These people aren’t bad, just sick.

I was one of these people once.

There’s a lot to be said for protecting our space. For knowing our limits and not giving up our light for ANYONE. No matter how much we love them.

It’s frustrating to see what others cannot recognise about themselves. To see people struggle, to see people choose to live in sad stories and pain, is almost too much to watch sometimes.

We must let these people go and find their own way. Staying too long can drag us down.

I refuse to live trapped on this earth by ego, abstinent from mood altering substances. If I am to live, I must live free and find what I was seeking all along…

A spiritual experience.

Settle For No Less

 

Why not wait for these words to come from the heart, by the love in your life?

Why not wait for these words to come from the heart, by the love in your life?

I can’t help but think that a lot of us dream of someone who would say these words about us or at least think them.

Than how come, more times than not, we settle for the person who may comment on some of the good qualities in us but also balance out those sweet words with a negative.  Why if this is what we dream about having, do we settle for less?   There can be many reason we don’t wait for “Mr. Right” and end up with “Mr. Right Now”.

We believe that no one really exits like this:  It could be from out past choices in men.  We have chosen for men that do not see into our souls.  The more we do that, the less we see the men of our dreams and think that all men are like the ones we have chosen so far.

We don’t think we measure up, without a partner:  Who wants to live alone and have to do the work of being our own reflection?  It’s more work we must do to find ourselves when we are alone.  Self worth must come from the things we do and feel and without someone to be the mirror for ourselves we may have not put the time in to believe in ourselves, to find out what we are truly made of.

We can’t be alone:  We have not found it within ourselves to find true happiness in the moment.  We have believed in the lie that if we are single, there must be something wrong with us, instead of believing that we are waiting, being patient, not settling and living in the faith that only when we can be ultimately happy with ourselves, can we bring real happiness and partnership into a relationship.

We get inpatient:  All of these choices steam roll into each other in supporting the disbelief that someone, other than our choices we have made so far, exists.  The less time we wait, the less choice goes into who we spend our time with.  The less “right” the man is, less faith that someone better suited for us exits, we in turn believe we will never find more.

The saying “good things come to those who wait” can be words to live by when our minds turn to why we are alone.

Remind yourself of this when you find yourself on the verge of choosing “Mr. Right Now”:

“I would rather be alone with myself, than with someone who treats me less than I deserve to be treated.”

 

 

Inspirational Songs: Beautiful

Every day is so wonderful
Then suddenly it’s hard to breathe
Now and then I get insecure
From all the pain, I’m so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

To all your friends you’re delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Tryin’ hard to fill the emptiness, the piece is gone
Left the puzzle undone, ain’t that the way it is?

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring you down, oh no
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring you down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

No matter what we do
(No matter what we do)
No matter what we say
(No matter what we say)
We’re the song inside a tune
Full of beautiful mistakes

And everywhere we go
(Everywhere we go)
The sun will always shine
(Sun will always shine)
But tomorrow we might wake on the other side

‘Cause we are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won’t bring us down, oh no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring us down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

Don’t you bring me down today

Days like this I want to drive away
Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade
You chewed me up and spit me out
Like I was poison in your mouth
You took my light, you drain me down
That was then and this is now
Now look at me

Chorus:
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

I just wanna throw my phone away
Find out who is really there for me
You ripped me off, your love was cheap
Was always tearing at the seams
I fell deep and you let me drown
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me

Chorus:
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

Bridge:
Now look at me I’m sparkling
A firework, a dancing flame
You’ll won’t never put me out again
I’m glowing oh whoa
You can keep the diamond ring
It don’t mean nothing anyway
In fact you can keep everything
Yeah yeah, except for me

Chorus:
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no (away from me)
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

This is the part of me (no)
(away from me) This is the part of me
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

To all my girls out there, let your lights shine!

 Katy Perry: Firework

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag

 

Drifting through the wind

Wanting to start again

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
Cause there’s a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gunna leave ’em fallin’ down-own-own

You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you’re reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it’s time, you’ll know

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe-awe-awe”

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through

Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on show ’em what your worth
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you’re a firework
Come on slet your colors burst
Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe-awe-awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

I Will Survive

Positive affirmations I find helpful in reminding myself who I am, where I am going and who I want to be:

I am intelligent

I am lovable

I am driven

I make things happen

Dreams come true, when I focus on them everyday

I am beautiful… to someone

I am positive

No one can take my self esteem away from me

I can do anything I set my mind to

I can do anything if I work hard

Other people do it, I can do it.  We are all made of the same stuff

I am meant for greatness

I am likable

Things will work out, they always do

God is protecting me and wants the best for me

Stay true to myself, I can’t go wrong

Follow my passion

Make it happen

Work!
