When you realize you are an absolute addict, what do you do?
How do you react?
Do you stuff it down deeper, piling over it distraction & destruction?
Or do you sit still & face yourself, as yourself?
Do you make the decision to be stronger, healthier, more vital?
Or do you choose to stay low, in illusion, in dis-ease?
Do you run away however you can, or do you stay even though it’s uncomfortable?
Change is uncomfortable.
It can be difficult to adjust.
It can be hard to settle into a new idea.
It can physically hurt.
It can be the best thing you’ve ever experienced.
When you stay & face yourself with a clear mind & choose to move forward, you grow & transform in the most wonderful ways. When you adopt discipline & acceptance, you will grow towards loving yourself.
Forgive the past.
Forgive yourself for not being perfect.
Realize you are not in control at all, though you try your damnedest.
And lose control in responsible & intentional ways.
Lose yourself in passion. In art. In creating. In loving.
Lose yourself in love.
Don’t break all habits at once.
Each day, incorporate something new into your life & give up something in place of it.
A habit created is a habit broken.
Change can be the most beautiful experience if you would but allow it to happen intentionally naturally.
Set an intention
– Your new mantra –
Repeat it over & over & over
