One of the greatest lessons in my life I’ve learned , is that no matter what happens, no matter what is thrown in my direction, I will be able to handle it. Have the faith in yourself and know that you have what it takes inside you, to get through any situation even when it seems like the only way out is death. I’ve battle ddepression before, so I know just how incredibly difficult it is to get out of a deep dark hole. I’ve learned to switch gears in my brain when I start to think negatively. The way out of my hole is through creating things. I’m the kind of person that when I put my mind to something and I get so passionate about it, I will just continue forward like a freight train not worrying about anything. My vision is my vision and that’s all I can see sometimes. When I start to create something such as a work of art, even if I have no idea what I’m doing, I get so involved in that project that I’m able to relax. Most of my life I’ve suffered from insomnia. During those times I can’t sleep, I do think about things and about how I can improve the world. Creating new things, Whether it be thinking of a way to improve the world or improve the lives of others through some invention, I am able to channel my energy and make it a positive flow. Negative thoughts will bury you faster than you can ever imagine anyone ever doing to you. I know I’m my own worst sabotager. I would sabotage my own success in the past and I partly believe I did that because I didn’t feel I deserved success. I would be rolling right along making good money, in the groove of my work, and sabotage it. I did notice a pattern with my work, that was that I wasn’t really passionate about it. I did not see it as my calling. I know my calling in life is to help others and to help improve their state of mind. I can do that through my own negative experiences that I’ve learned to overcome. The mind is a powerful tool and if you don’t know how to use it properly, which I’m not an expert at, you could be sabotaging your own success and not realizing your own calling in life. Whatever you do in this life, make sure you put yourself into it. What I mean by that is do everything to the best of your ability and don’t forget to be yourself. I know I do not want to die saying I wished I had lived out of the expectations of others. I’ve learned to let go of my children and what my expectations are of them and allow them to explore this world. We are all on our own journey and we all need different things. As I’ve said before, you are unique. Forge ahead and put your mark on this world. The world needs your perspective.
