You’re the Light

There’s nothing or nobody more powerful than you standing up in all your glory for what you believe in.

There will be times when you’ll be overwhelmed by the world,
by people who let themselves run cold.
That will never get old…
But, oh dear soul, don’t lose hold…

Don’t lose hold of your pureness or your innocence,
even if it feels like you are defying common sense.

For you are the light that keeps this world going,
even if you don’t see it, it is showing…
your tribe is growing…

If you ever find yourself in doubt, if it seems like you cannot make a choice, go with what feels right to your heart…with what feeds your soul. Sometimes it might not be the easiest thing to do, it might seem like you’re being selfish or not paying heed to your responsibilities. But, after a few times of trying it, you’ll see that everything else always falls into place when you’re making decisions based on what feels right for you.

I spent a good part of my life thinking of myself as a lost soul, and was surprisingly okay with it. I even used to publicly tease myself for being one. And then, one day, my soul decided that it was not okay with being lost... not anymore. I'm not sure if I should call it a quarter-life-crisis or simply realizing that I had to "grow up", but at one point, everything around me seemed like it was crumbling down - my job, my relationships, my self-esteem and literally everything that I could think of. I clearly remember the three days I could barely get out of bed, even to get food and water! I lay in bed thinking that I'd done it this time...pushed myself too far and gone to a place that I could never return from. I'd hit rock bottom. Like everybody says, when you hit rock bottom, the only way is up. And up I came... It wasn't easy and it took every ounce of my being, but I made it, and I'm proud of it. I now think of myself as a warrior, a warrior of the mind and of the soul. In this blog, I'll tell you more about my journey and how it has led me to a place where I can be at peace whilst fighting those everyday battles of the mind. I'll tell you more about what has worked for me, and what hasn't...what kept me going in those times of hopelessness and fear (I now see how these were self-inflicted!). It's my hope that somebody out there will be able to relate to all or some of it and that I can serve as a reminder of the fact that it always gets better. Always does.
