TODAY I LEARNED: A bolt of lightning can measure up to 3,000,000 volts – and it lasts less than one second!
When I first decided to write this blog post, I was going to start with the topic of betrayal. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized no betrayal ever really took place. Sometimes people and events simply fall out of your life, and there’s nothing you can do about it except watch it all fall away like specs of ash from a once raging fire.
So, that’s what I’ve done. Everything has come full circle and I’ve let the simmering of the past fall away and the bad people have fallen with it. For awhile I was hurt and sad. There was a lot I couldn’t understand about it. Now I know it was the right decision. Sometimes we don’t know what’s best for us until we’ve been put through an ordeal, then placed on the other side so we can finally see.
Of course, I wish that things could have been different, but would that change the fact that there’s never going to be any improvement with the bad ones? No. I had to move on and that’s what I’ve done. It hurt, it was horrible, and now things are better.
You simply can’t dwell on what you once had. You have to move forward. Keep the bad people out of your life and try your best each day. That’s all you can do.
Daily advice: Reminding yourself that you’re enough does something to your brain. It helps you appreciate yourself and your life much more. You probably think…
Oh I know I’m enough, I don’t have to say it.
But you would be surprised how it makes you feel. We live in a world where self love is considered selfish and it simply shouldn’t be that way.
That was my daily mantra for the day. “I am enough.”
If it’s something you need to tell yourself, go ahead and use it. There’s no shame. After a long week, you probably need it and that’s okay.
On a side note, ghost blogs are still coming. I apologize for the delay but I needed a mental health break, and now I’m back. 😊
I hope everyone has a good day. Also, remember that it’s okay if you don’t want to smile. Just get through your day the best you can. ❤
Blessed Be )O(
