This week I’ll be continuing on to the second part of last week’s blog post, about monsters.
Everybody has a monster that lives inside them. It’s not a secret. There is something deep down in everybody that they know they could work on, or something that torments them. Its part of life and shouldn’t be avoided or hidden. Embrace that darkness, because it is the only think that can illuminate just how much light there is.
By that, I mean, when something bad happens, I let it happen. I live through it and I make the most out of the situation. Any scenario can be dealt with. You just have to think about the good things that came from it. If you lose your job, remember the friends you made there. The things that you were able to do with your money. If you lose a relationship, hold on to the good memories. You don’t know what will happen in three years. I’m living proof of both of those things. I’m friends with old flames now because I didn’t take all of my time to hate on them and spread bullshit and act like I never cared for them. It wastes your time. I’m personally 100% open about loving people even if they hurt me. I don’t see any ending from hating someone for what they did to me. I lost my job and am doing just fine. Sure, I don’t have much money, but what have I always said?
I’ll make more.
Money isn’t everything. As a matter of fact, it isn’t anything. Yes it’s a tool and a damn useful one at that. I don’t hate on anyone who wants to make a lot of money. Shit, I want to make a lot of money, but personally, that isn’t my goal. I have too many shadows as it is, I don’t need to add greed to that list.
At the end of the day, I hope you can look into yourself and see all of the good and the bad that you contain within your soul. I hope that you can manage those things. If you’re full of care, you won’t have a problem with evaluating your situation and when the sun goes down you’ll know that you can last until daylight. When your sun comes up, it never has to go down again.
Life in sunlight. Bathe your monsters in it. Feel every emotion that comes your way and appreciate it for what it is. It’s growing you, shaping you and making you into something new. Something more powerful and more important than you were before, which is pretty monumental in and of itself because you are already so important to this world that I couldn’t accurately put it into words.
What I’m saying is this…
Good days will come, invite them. So will bad days. Invite them as well. Take every single memory with you along your way because they will shape and mold you and teach you more than you thought you could learn. There is nothing wrong with feeling emotion and that is the most important thing I have to say right now. Don’t limit yourself off from feeling anything. Don’t let yourself be overtaken by your own shadows or your own sunlight.
All things are meant to be felt. Your hurt and your sorrow are commanding it. On the same note, so is your joy and your laughter. All things should be felt. All things should be appreciated. All things should be felt and perceived. There is nothing more powerful in this life.
I hope that wherever you are, whoever you are, you’re feeling something powerful today.
