Our minds are incredible things. They have the power to influence our everyday actions and ultimately our lives.
Our hearts are also strong and powerful pieces of our existence.
Though we have found ourselves constantly having to come with the realisation that the two don’t often always have the best outcome when working together.
Over the last two years I have come a long way.
I have realised people cannot be trusted. I have learnt that certain individuals will ALWAYS put themselves before myself, no matter what stories they spin beforehand.
I know now what I want in life and exactly how to get it.
Things happen in our lives that will shock us out of our daily existence and in to an utter state of confusion, denial and pain.
I have learnt to deal with these incidents and push through.
I have learnt not to fall back on the “default” option of harming myself or planning my end, but to stick it out.
No matter how painful, emotionally and physically, these events may be.
Reading over this blog from the last four years shows me how far I have come.
I was in a life controlling relationship. Forced to live out my days in complete denial, silence and hatred for myself, the world and the individual.
It was not until I saw all sides of this relationship from outsiders that I came to realise how destructive it was.
I learnt to speak up.
My voice has been a valuable tool in the last twelve months.
Saying what I think, what I believe and what I know has helped me achieve independence from a life I once knew.
We all make choices every day. They can change the way we act, think and speak.
However, decisions can be just as, if not, more important.
They form the paths our lives take. Stupid decisions, uneducated decisions, brilliant decisions and inspired decisions.
We’re guaranteed to make one if not all of these types of decisions many times in our lives.
So, I am owning my decisions and sticking to my actions.
I am living up to my own strong expectations.
And making wise decisions which will frame my future for the better.
