Happy Monday Rockstars!
This morning I was en route to the store. While I was semi-conscious of my surroundings my thoughts were in another dimension. I pretty much spent yesterday in hell…no, literally! From the moment my eyes woke up to a text to the moment my mind was so spent it shut down I was literally in hell on earth. I woke up this morning, still trying to shake those thoughts from my mind. It’s amazing how those closest to you can hurt you the most.
But I digress.
As I was walking, my thoughts were abruptly interrupted by the sound of two cars crashing. I stopped cold in my tracks. The first thing I did was grab my cell phone to call 9-1-1. After reporting the incident I crossed the street to see if the lady in one of the cars was okay. The guy that she hit was trying to shut her car alarm off. After I alerted them of my call and the police arrived I continued on my journey. While the situation remained the same my thoughts changed.
It was at this point I realized my life isn’t about me. While I may have problems, personal issues, whatever others want to call it, there is someone somewhere that has it worse. While no one was injured in the accident (thank God), they now have to deal with repairs, higher insurance premiums, possible reprimand for being late to work, etc. I, on the other hand, do not. I stopped worrying about who said what about me and became more concerned about them.
In fact, everything I do is about others. I write stories to entertain, empower and encourage others. I created this blog to motivate others. I answer my phone at 3,4 or 5 AM for others. I sacrificed damn near everything for others…and I’m proud of it! But that wasn’t the message delivered to me yesterday. While I don’t live my life FOR me, I do live my life my way.
Once again, I digress. Focusing now! 😮
Your journey has a purpose, but it’s not to fulfill you. It’s to fulfill the needs of others. That’s okay, and don’t let anyone tell you differently. You are who you are for a reason. I almost let others alter me yesterday. That would have altered how I walked within my purpose. I thank God for that reality check, even if I didn’t like the delivery. Do I need to change? In some aspects, yes, in others, no. Do you need to change? That’s something only you and your Higher Power can determine.
My point is this, as you go along on your daily grind don’t lose sight of why you started YOUR journey in the first place. Things will change, people will fade, desires will dissipate. No matter what happens, even if it affects you, it’s not solely about you! Do what you can with what you have. That’s all anyone can expect.
