I’ve been in what some people call “a funk” for quite a long period of time. But truth be told it was fully ever the type where you moan and groan at the world even on the sunshiniest day or you just want ice cream type. It’s been a perspective funk.
There have been plenty of time in life where I have not wanted to do anything for the day. That’s a given, we are human and have all kinds of nooks and crannies that make us who we are. There are always factors by the choices we’ve or other persons have made to make us feel some type of way. A lot of times it’s really how we are viewing things. We tend to see one thing and our minds fill in the entire bio preface epilogue the whole nine, when truthfully whatever we are making our assumption on may be in a completely different genre (if you get my book reference).
This past couple months or so I’ve been realizing so much that I wished I could’ve acknowledged sooner. I’ve realized also that me wishing for what could’ve happened doesn’t mean anything because now I’d be stuck in this past tense and I won’t be able to move forward without this thought always creeping. I was and am meant to learn my lessons when I am supposed to. I mean sure sooner better than later but later better than never.
We need to take everyday to the fullest. This day. There’s a certain moral obligation we should prize on. It’s tough to always find a way or a way in others and express your beliefs on their actions because I’m in the midst of everything too, I live in this world and have been subjected to it all. But I do have a say, and I want to set an expectation upon myself to be better than I was. To be better than how I was thinking about myself, others, things. To have a better response to trauma, stress, natural outcomes. I would love to just express that and slightly press that we should choose this option over being offended.
I know I have been offended and been the offender countless times in my life. I believe we all have, whether it’s unintentional or because of natural response we have done so. This is sort of finally where my main thought is coming around, I’ve realized later better than never to try and not let myself be offended and let it linger. I’ve chosen to be conflicted and tormented by actions that others or myself have placed before me, affecting me either physically or spiritually and allowing my heart mind and soul to be offended and live from there. To be honest I’ve lived there and a lot of us have. But today is a new day, as is everyday given. So today I’m choosing to be better than my perspective and being better than my offense. I’m placing all these offenses behind me because I have to realize that everyone is here for a reason and are on that underlines path. Some, less than not will choose to go down that path but none the less I am choosing to take that step forward on it.
I challenge anyone reading to look at yourself. Look at your actions and words. Are you living from an offensive or offended place. Learn and better oneself to effect not just yourself but the others may see the difference. Love Always.
“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
