No one gets out of here unscathed; We all have scars. But we must remember to let go of that which is no longer a positive influence in our lives. These influences could be a variety of things: from holding on to traumatic memories and the sadness that it brought to you, to not letting go of a lover that doesn't respect your relationship.
You deserve to be treated the way you treat your significant other. It is a waste of your time and energy to love someone who is unwiling to show you the same love in return. There are many other connections we could be making that can be just as strong and significant. We need to learn to let go when nothing gets better, and they keep telling you that they just need a bit more time and those weeks turn into months, andnothing has changed. That would be a good indication that it is time to walk away and keep moving forward. Don't let someone else keep you from having the love life you want.
"Holding on is believing that there's only a past; Letting go is knowing that there's a future" ~ Daphne Rose Kingma
We as human beings, with big hearts and open arms, tend to give people we love to many chances, because of our deep feelings for that person. We hang on to what could be instead of what is. If it doesn't make you happy, then it's time to walk away. Some times we fear being alone so much that we are willing to stat in a stagnant or unhealthy relationship. Let go of that fear and start living!
Steer clear from any avoidable drama and live in the flow of life. Listen to your inner voice; It will keep you heading in the right direction. All we have to do is listen and heed the guidance. If you are in an unhealthy relationship or marriage, and have been fo an extended period of time, it's your own fault. I know that is a hard pill to swallow, but onlywhen you relize that you have been holding on to a negative connection, that is going nowhere for both concerned parties, will you make a positive change and choose to move on and move forward.
We can also hold on to bad memories and that can be just as unhealthy. When we hold onto the pain and anger towards others who have wronged us, and hold grudges against them, we are the ones who suffer. We have to be able to look at all the bad things that have happened to us throughout our lives as lessons. They are what makes us stronger and wiser. But sometimes we let our bad memories rule us instead of learning and growing wiser because of them.

Recently, through meditation, visions and my spiritual advisor Oliver Smith, I have finally found myself! I have been searching and searching, until it finally hit me like a ton of bricks, Say Yes!
This beautiful world that we live in can be heaven or hell on Earth. It just depends on how we look at it. If we want true Joy in our lives we must first love ourselves. Love all, inspire all, and be of srevice to all.
We were all created by God; therefore we are all gods under our creator. Make yourself happy first and everyone in your circle will become happier also. Stop listening to your Ego and Say Yes! I promise that if you do that you will feel the Joy that you deserve. No more I can't, I won't and don't, try to use positive words to start and you will start to feel your own godliness. Our egos are the voices that tell us we can't - So just be you!
"Surrender to what is. Say 'Yes' to life - and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you." ~ Eckhart Tolle
If you have a dream, then go after it. You are the only one that stands in the way of your own happieness. If you want to be happy, then start being happy. The Universe has your backand will lead you in the right direction.
Once you start to say yes it will be very scary. But it will be the kind of scary that we all like to experience. I compare it to riding a rollar coaster. So start saying Yes and let God guide you through this simple, yet complex life.
This is the Human experience and why we all decided to live it. Look for the positive and push away the negative.

We all have dreams and goals to reach for in our lives. And if you don't have any, you should. Without dreams and goals we have nothing to work fore and nothing to gain.
Before we were born each and every one of us wrote a script for our lives, we planned on going through hard times and facing challenges to overcome and learn from them. We also planned on experiencing all of the good things that will happen to us.
I know that sometimes it gets a bit frustrating thinking that our lives are pre-destined, like we are puppets on a string, but that is so not true. We make our own choices, for better or worse. Usually if we follow our heart and intuition we make good choices for ourselves.
"let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined."
~ Henry David Thoreau
Although we sometimes make good choices, it doesn't nessarily meanthat we won't experience negative results from them. The negatitive that we deal with in life is meant for us to learn from and become wiser souls. Gaining wisdome is the main reason we are here on this earth.
At the end os every negative experience that we go through, there is always a positive that results from each experience. Everything happens for a reason. There would be no good without the bad.
All we can do on life is be the best people we can be. We allhave a good sense of right and wrong, and we need to try to make good decisions. If a negative situation arises in our life, you just need to look at it as another challenge to overcome.
" We all have aur own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving; And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing." ~ Louisa May Alcott
We need our goals and dreams to accomplish growth for our soul. If we didn't have anything to look forward to such as achieving our dreams, we would live a meaningless existence and that doesn't sound like a very happy life.
The dreams that we all cherish are things that we decided to accomplish long before we were born into this world, So if you don't have any goals, Get Some! They are a built-in Component of your soul. All you have to do is access them and go after them!

We were all given many special talents when we were created and given to us for a reason.
Some of us have a creative talent, while others are natural healers, Craftsmen, Scientists or other Business people; Or maybe your Special skills are being a good Parent or Teacher.
More times than I care to mention I have been told that I don’t have any talents. Today I know that is simply not true.
Sometimes we just don’t see our own abilities or see ourselves having them. But if we look closer and pay attention, we will find out what they are. They are part of us and always will be.
“What ever you are by nature, keep to it; Never desert your line of Talent.
Be what nature intended you for and you will succeed.” ~ Sydney Smith
No Matter what gifts we were given, we need to use them. That is when we will find a great sense of ourselves and begin finding out who we really are.
At one time or another in our lives we have all felt lost and confused and it’s usually because we are not following our true life path.
It won’t always be easy, but if we let go of our fears and live our authentic lives, we will be much more centered and have the confidence to be who we were truly meant to be.

Most people don't realize the true power of words and how they can affect us and the lives of others, for better or for worse.
For instance, say I write a song about overcoming adversity. Some of the people who listen to that song may find in it some inner strength to overcome their own problems and obstacles.
Words can also be damaging and hurtful to others. For example, a father tells his children that they are “losers” after a while those children may start to believe that they are indeed losers. They may begin to have troubles in life and act the way they perceive themselves to be, such as behavioral problems, poor grades and not follow through with their dreams or goals.
‘We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out.’ ~ Winston Churchill
I am also guilty of slinging negative arrows at times. We all need to think before we speak and aim to understand that if we just try and find something positive to say, instead of focusing on the negative, we’ll get a better outcome. Even if the other person said or did something hurtful to us. I know it’s a lot easier said than done, but it works.
So the next time that you are being verbally attacked and you are ready to lash back; Defuse the confrontation with a positive statement like: I’m sorry that you feel that way, I think that you are a very good person “or” I understand why you would feel that way, I didn’t mean to upset you.”
Trust me,more times than not the other person’s attitude is going to change if you respond in a positive way. It doesn’t always work, but at least you will know in your own heart that you made a positive effort to make things better.
