Finding Beauty Within

Finding Beauty Within

Everyone has those worrying thoughts. The ones that create fear deep in the beats of your heart. The ones that make your eyes dry- or watery, depending on your nature. They're the thoughts that take you away from the light, away from the positive person you want to be. Recently, my daydream appointed fear as the conductor on my train of thought. I saw my beautiful future twist into an ugly shade of gray. In the dream, I couldn't find my voice, I'd somehow lost it, or something, and I couldn't talk nor sing. I soon realized the reality of the dream, I couldn't be creative anymore. Singing, playing piano, drawing, and painting we're unreachable. I was stuck in a gray office building, where my passion hid under covers, too scared of the dark to keep shining.

I think this daydream was brought on by stress, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, and a lack of meditation. Then, on top of that, I got physically sick. It took me some time and a great friend to realize my state-of-mind was so anxious. I found my light and now I'm back to my bright and shining ways.

The beauty that lies within will always be inside waiting to be set free. Smile at yourself in the mirror. Love who you are, embracing the love from others.  Steer clear of passion suckers, and instead practice your personal passion in all the ways you know how. Then, go learn a new skill and put all your passion into that new thing! For me, my new skill is going to be learning how to play piano.

The reason I know how to be high is because I also know how to be low. It's a Yin and a Yang, light and dark, good and bad, a roller coaster of the soul.

Life is beautiful, if you see it that way. Let out the bad and make room for the good. The rest is entirely up to you.

Make it great.
