For most of my life, I had been living a life I don’t want. I suffered from childhood abuse, had failed marriages, and attracted drama-filled, self-destructive, and sometimes, violenct lovers and friends, and worked at unfilling jobs – essentially living the life of a victim. I have come to realize that each of us has the power to change our lives for the better.
This change does not require money, status, or influence as it comes from personal power. This power is derived from our courage, intentions, and hard work. These are the most important factors to transformation in our lives, and I am a witness to this.
I never believed I possess this power so I continued to play the victim role in my life. It took great courage to tell those who hurt me, “No more, because I deserve better!” and to eliminate them from my life if they choose to continue. Some people could not stop and could not control themselves from hurting me, and unfortunely, they were asked to leave my life for good.
I now have a vision of what I want my life to look and feel. I follow this feeling of sharing my life with loving, kind, and honest people. I see my life filled with purpose, and my work will empower victims to become survivors. It is my intention that carries me when things get hard and I face obstacles. It is my hard work everyday that manifests my vision and wish for this new life.
Once I envisioned this new life, I realize it is my path forward, and I transform as I walk this path everyday one step at a time. Build the new life you want, and the rest will fall into place. Carpe diem! (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
