Hard to believe it has been six months since I posted here. Much has changed since then. I have moved, started going back to college, and have found myself developing spiritually amid the changes or due to the changes. I have found that I have strength, strength of mind, body and spirit, strength of character, and strength to take authority over my life in all aspects.
Once again, I can reflect on the outgoing year and see that all changes are opportunities. We can make the best of whatever comes our way and sometimes be surprised when the uncomfortable change leads to a better life. That is what happened to me.
Of course, it might not have been that way just a few years ago. I have finally developed the gift (which we all have) to accept and be content in whatever situation I have been given. That is not to say that we should all stay in a bad situation, but we can learn, grow, and give of our hearts while we’re waiting, and continue to work on bringing about the changes we need.
We can become strong through adversity.
I do not mean to give the impression that I am sitting quietly in some sort of meditative state. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. I have a stronger voice now, and I use it continuously to bring about changes that will eventually result in equality for all people.
I am involved in my own revolution, which means I also join in with others of like mind.
My card for today (and many days) is Strength.
We all have strength inside of us, but we are often afraid that we do not. All we need to do to get stronger is to rely on the strength that is already within. As we do this, a miraculous thing starts to happen, strength begins to grow, faith begins to grow, and we become stronger than we ever believed possible.
While all around you may think that you have been defeated, you are silently gaining strength to make changes.
Strength means many things to different people. For me, it means weathering the storm and focusing on the silver linings, and there are many of them. It means becoming more mindful of every moment and the choices that I have. It also means recognizing that not all past choices were in my best interest, or in the best interest of those I love, but knowing that each day brings the opportunity to make new choices – if I dare.
I can do it.
You can do it.
We can do it.
