If there is something present in your life that you would like to change, then things cannot remain constant, and you must take action! Raise your head up high and pound your fist towards to the sky! You can do it! You have the power to change these circumstances.

You have the power to change your life.

“Great people will always be mocked by those who feel smaller than them. A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena. A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey.
A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song at the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker. Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower. Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,
it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.”  
~ Suzy Kassem

Words.

A lesson I have learnt in the cultivation of my own strength.

Is that somebody who leaves you riddled with scars can make you stronger. 

Your skin a little thicker.

Yet the ones who leave you with nothing but soft memories and laughter.

Those can strip you to the bone.

One must never question them self. Why? Because the logistical brain often tries to override the heart, however the heart is true by nature.
Don’t question what your heart is telling you.
It knows.
It will always know.
And the brain? Love it as well. However, it plays different roles in your life. But not this one.

Savage

It’s not always pretty
And she’s not always
This picture-perfect bullshit
Definition of what’s considered
To be beautiful
But that’s a woman
Someone capable of becoming
Whatever she needs to be
Whenever she needs to be it

Sometimes she’s a savage
But only when appropriate
An alpha among the wolves
And when shit gets tough
Whenever her life becomes
A war zone
She straps up her fucking boots
And goes to war
She fights, she’s always been a fighter

Control your thoughts, and you will be able to control the way in which the world appears.
Think highly of events; if it’s good, see it’s beauty. If it’s bad, seek for growth. Everything that happens has a reason, purpose, and difference that it will make. So take a moment, and choose to see the impact that your thoughts have on your life.

You must be able to forgive yourself from your past mistakes. You must. Without doing so, how will you move on in life? If you keep on reminding yourself of everything you’ve ever done wrong, how will you ever see everything that you do right?

You don’t need anybody else’s approval but your own.

You don’t need an entire army of supporters standing underneath your feet.

You don’t need a million more dollars in the bank.

You have exactly what you need, and you have it all right now.
So take a breath, and go for it.
