A pencil begins unsharpened, but only becomes sharpened when a writer desires to create. If the pencil is to break, what was previously created is not altered. The broken end is left and the creator has to decide to either leave it broken, or resharpen it. This is true with life. If you break, you still have the ability to resharpen and create. The benefit now is that your life will carry your experiences in beautiful grooves. True creators do not allow their obstacles to hinder them. They use them to grow, develop and become advanced.
I woke up.
I set a timer for 10 minutes.
I sat up and closed my eyes.
I inhaled through my nose and released each breath through my mouth.
I saw sunlight underneath my eyelids.
I heard birds chirping a beautiful song.
I felt the first spring breeze on my face.
I thanked God for another day.
I felt my body lighten.
As I finished, I heard the sound of a car engine roar.
The start of that car was also the start to my day.
Let it be marvelous.
What truly has value cannot be seen.
Maturity and strength are created through the intangible.
To be spiritually strengthened is to be able to endure whatever life may throw at you.
One day you can have it all and the next day, it could all be wiped away.
If everything you valued was wiped away, would you have enough on the inside to press forward? …Or would you sink?
I created this blog over a year ago because I truly felt that I was a crappy writer. There were times (and still are) when I can’t seem to express myself with the correct words. I’ve always been a little more reserved at first – but there have always been several layers to my personality. The main reason I created this blog was to give my mind a healthy space to come alive.
I’ve now had my blog for a year and it’s so crazy to believe that this all began as just a thought.
Darkness does not care about your race, sexuality or gender.
It doesn’t care about your beauty, nor does it care about your wealth.
It starts with effecting your exterior.
The ultimate goal is to not let it capture heart and soul.
What keeps you on fire? What truly keeps you out of darkness?
How do you survive?
