The Mask We Wear

It seems like it's been forever since my last post. I have no clue where time has gone. Between my uncle's passing, working the 2 jobs, and dealing the Teach for America stuff, some days I have no clue what I'm doing. But the crazy part...I'm the happiest I have been in a very long time!! I genuinely have a smile that seems to be radiating from the inside. I have learned to find the moment to be grateful in the mist of life's journey.

At all times, no matter the situation, we all should be grateful. Grateful for the little things--a smile, an occasional laugh, the smell of Fall, etc. The appreciation of the little things help us to appreciate this journey in its totality. And at this moment, I am in love with my journey.

What's my secret?? There's none!

Honestly, we all search for the magic combination of life and balance to find happiness when it exist within. We can't find what we are looking for on the outside; the search must start within. The inter you holds the key to the success of life's desires. As my last post stated, your purpose in life is connected to you at birth. Do you honestly know what's in you? Rivers of life are flowing in you. Dip into this source and find what you have been searching for this whole time. Yes, this whole time it's been in you all along.It starts with one step. One decision to decide that what you have been doing; the outward search and shuffle, is no good. Because you did not create yourself, you must return to the Creator for proper operation instructions. That decision starts on the inside. It is the giving of yourself to complete submission to what you were created for is when you find the true you. It's that moment of still silence when you hear that small voice you had been running from. It speaks to you clearly and this time you gotta listen. It's a peaceful, reassuring, and encouraging voice. It tells you to fall back in love with you and simple pleasures you once enjoyed but disregarded for the clutter of people and things. Still yourself to hear again.

I know this sounds strange, but it's tested truth. Stop running from you. All those these are well, just things. They seem great to have, but they bring you not true joy. Joy is the sense of knowing happiness is eternal. You can be happy in all situations your journey comes into. Let no person or no thing block you from your reaching your destiny. Be you you're supposed to be. It's never to late to take the mask off. It's never to late to realize this isn't what you want. It's never to late to find yourself and the happiness you deserve.

It's okay to acknowledge you're not content. But it's NOT okay to NOT make the change necessary to find what you are desiring. Nobody said this journey would be easy. Most things on this journey come with growing pains. But they are temporary and well worth the outcome.

However, understand this necessary attention to the inner man is at a price; once you feed yourself it's obligation to feed others. Thirsty souls are waiting for you to release so they too can drink. They need you to follow your inward man so their outward can resemble the same happiness that you have found. They want to remove their mask too. They want to be free too. You must share with them how to reach what you have already found. Your passion will feed a multitude who will eat of you and find their inner passion and thus the cycle will continue. But it must start with one man. One man who has the courage to stand in the mist of the crowded room and peel off the mask and let the true soul only takes one to start a revolution of change...
