For Who?

You spend a million moments

wrestling the truth.

Or waste away a thousand wonders

reflecting on your youth.

Regrets fall flat; forget all that.

A search can birth a blossom.

Bud a bloom, a youthful you,

And touch so much; the possible.

*

You tend to gaze at your own life

through a one-side point-of-view.

Or dig in depths to find the words

when the point is far and through.

You mean so well. You prob’ly know.

It’s more like, “What to do?”

A constant tear and nagging fear.

A dull and digging gloom.

*

Pretend the world was built for more,

but together it dies too.

A season comes, grows, changes, goes,

and maybe, so do you.

But time can race or stop or slow.

It’s more like, “For who?”

A question. A forward quest in thought,

an answer part of you.

Life is Cycles

Life is cycles — various and intertwining. Hang-ups create cycles, until dealt with, you ride. They can run smoothly or hit each other along the way. They continue, end and start over. You create your destiny by dealing or not dealing with yourself.

Your destiny is worth the attention.

  1. Pay attention to your surroundings. Are you uncomfortable with the decision you make? Can you envision an ideal place of comfort?
  2. Pay attention to your actions. Are you doing what compels you/ propels you? Or simply what everyone else is doing, because they are doing it.
  3. Pay attention to your words. Words speak loudly and harshly sometimes. But words also have the power to speak to a person’s heart. The breath from a spoken word has the potential to breathe life. Sometimes, a whisper to a friend is more powerful than a clap for comfort.

Find the patterns in your hang-ups to adjust them. Find what piece of you needs attention. And, if your words can speak power, God’s words can move mountains. Have faith in God’s perfect plan and timing.

Question through a higher Perspective

Why is this happening? Why do people not understand me? Why me?

Being human means being self-absorbed sometimes. We all fall victim to taking things personally. It’s human nature to reflect about circumstances and actions of people on a personal level. But this goes against you because human nature goes against God’s nature. It’s just the ego speaking lies to you.

Yes, circumstances come into your life for reasons. But reasons are not within details or people. Reasons are self improvement. This is confusing through a world perspective. It may look exact opposite — self-involved. But the difference is key. The difference is HOW it’s looked at and not why. If we pray for a glimpse of God’s perspective, it becomes clear. Eyes focus on a bigger picture.

A situation taken personally can drive a person crazy — why does this person not like you or why do they not understand you.  All the while, circumstances revolving you, only manifested for you. They are for self reflection in order to grow and move in the direction God is leading you. And God leaves nothing to waste. The same situation is also for that other person, for reason of their own.

Love and be loved. This needs focus. If we are looking at why a person does something then we are looking at it wrong. It doesn’t matter why. The answer is obvious —  because something needs to be worked out. Therefore, instead of ridicule or self-doubt, we need to strive for compassion and love no matter what.

It’s human nature to see the world against you. But it’s far from it. The world is for you and you are for it. Until our eyes focus on the world’s entirety, we cannot begin to better it. Anything and anyone who inhabits it is to be loved by you.

1 Samuel 16:7 ESV But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

Ephesians 4:2-3 ESV With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

ReFLEXion: Lasting Impressions

“My dreams are my desires — to intentionally inspire.”

We are so unique. To be explained from a glimpse of the mind only paints a frozen picture. Moments imprint a lasting impression. In a flip book of collected memories, how will you resonate? Moments of realization from regretful actions are one-sided lessons; and painful endings always have two beginnings.

ReFLEXion: Find Time To Shine

Your uniqueness is the very glitter of a fleck of flint. Each fleck, collaborative in forming something useful to catch fire. Each fleck, looks the same — small and insignificant, like they are one. But, the very essence of what makes them unique creates friction and spits fire, just slightly enough to sparkle. But that is enough to

Unknown-2ignite the whole area. It’s beauty, together, create breathtaking awe, in the simplicity of wonder — God’s wonder.

God’s wonder-ful. Wonderful-ly exclusive, elusive. Only those who believe, receive the truthful perception — an all-consuming direction. It’s not a straight path to a destination. Not limiting but liberating. Free, not fate but destiny. His atmosphere is the fuel we need to succeed. Purpose. Perplexing, when seen only through eyes. Read between the lines, the senses, have faith, and grab at the confusion. Only then, it’s not an illusion.

Breathe in and open your eyes.

A Present State-of-Mind: The fine line between Strength and Weakness

Nothing gives me insight more than not finding time to write down my thoughts. They get so jammed up; I feel like I will explode! At the first chance, it comes pouring out. .

. .I am one big walking fortune cookie. I have this wisdom and foresight, most of the time, I have to clue what to do with. I tend to put people off when I speak. It’s like a different language to most; and, for some reason, I can’t shut it off.

I function like an alien. I tend to think with my eyes in a virtual reality of the ideal. When I see a problem as it stands, I am designed to search for a solution.

My perception is insulting to the natural manner of most. Some tend to think I am correcting their behavior. I am learning to only give my input if asked; but, it seems unfair. I AM JUST TRYING TO HELP! 😛

Nothing makes me question my purpose/existence more than being surrounded by those who don’t understand me, who question my motives, or who need an explanation for my reasoning. After constant explaining, with little to no approval, it starts to eat away my confidence. Confidence that I, so patiently, built my foundation on.

If I’m surrounded by those who can’t accept or don’t understand how I am, I feel trapped in a life of seclusion and consuming fear of rejection. I put a great effort in fitting in; but, it just seems to kink up my insides. A problem easily fixed by support of others; but, if the people who surround my daily life seem to lack the capability to support me, my purpose and existence break down with my foundation.

For those who take these things out of context or see my words as judgment and ridicule, my “solutions” can be weary and draining. Therefore, soar straight over their heads — a classic case of misunderstanding. Motivation, positivity, and encouragement can only be empowering to those who seek it to be.

It has been a reoccurring issue in my life and I am starting to wonder if it’s because I have issues that personally need to be ironed out. What better way to adjust my focal point than to be in a room full of people who have a different view on life. Standing in a bubble of isolation forces me to analyze the reasons I was put there in the first place.

ReFLEXion: How will you be Remembered?

How will you be remembered? — For the ones shaped around what you leave behind. For the ones who desperately cling to something to hold onto.

Who will remember you? Being remembered only matters to them; because, when you are gone, you exist no more on Earth. When your journey is complete, you are only a memory — distant and blowing in the wind — the whispers of sweet and touching times. They matter greatly to those still on Earth; but, for you, existing has a whole new meaning.

How do you want to be remembered? Not for the legacy, but for the others who continue on this earth. It’s okay to be forgotten. Don’t be afraid of life’s ambiguity. If you seek to be immortalized, none will have really known you.

Leave a thought or comment —  I would love to hear them! 🙂
