”Smiling doesn’t always mean you are happy, sometimes it simply means you are strong. And you are.”
When you need it the most it will be there. It will embrace you with all its power. With all its grace. Effortlessly and without questioning your potential.
I’m talking about your inner strength.
Ahaa, you thought you didn’t have any? Oh yes you do. We all have it, and I’m pretty sure it will shine through you the day you require it the most. I think the day we allow ourselves to truly feel all our emotions; sadness, grief, pain, fear as well as excitement, joy, peace and happiness – our inner strength will follow comfortably along like a skilled dance partner.
”The glassblower knows: while in the heat of beginning, any shape is possible. Once hardened, the only way to change is to break.”
– Mark Nepo
One should never, however, let feelings take over completely. Recognize them as merely emotions. They don’t define you; you’re not your emotions. They are simply a state of mind. Negative emotions building up inside your body need to be released in order for you to become free of stress and anxiety. Therefore, when you feel out of sync, when you feel run down and filled with pain, sadness or grief – let it out. The only way out is through. When you get back up you’ll feel stronger than ever before. Filled with power and with a newborn confidence you will start to conquer each day like the true survivor you are.
And do bear in mind; life will be filled with plenty of highs and lows. If we truly start to accept that life is uncertain I think life will become much more smooth and straightforward. It’s nothing wrong with being sad and filled with hopelessness from time to time. But know that everything will eventually work out for your best when the timing is right. Never lose faith in yourself and your capabilities.
As human we have so much to offer one another. We should start putting more trust in everything that we are. Your mind is simply astonishing and an amazingly creative instrument. Beyond the fear, that so often suppresses all the cleverness and imagination, lies a truly astonishing consciousness. Don’t let the negativity dim your magic. Instead – embrace it and be brave; ask your inner strength to dance.
And remember, dancing is always fun although you step on each others toes.
