Voices That Won’t Win

The voices inside my head have got me so paranoid

Leaving me feeling quite annoyed

I wish that I knew how to silence them for good

Oh how I would if I could

 

Sometimes the things they say frighten me

Twisting everything that I see

Other times they tell me I’ll fail at something I want to do

“Oh girl, why do you try? You surely haven’t got a clue.”

 

Sometimes they feed my anger, egging me on

Telling me to do bad things, making me their pawn

Now most times I don’t give in

I have sworn not to let them win

 

Every now and then, they comfort me like a dear friend

Each insecurity, they find a way to mend

I often feel so torn inside

In whom can I truly confide?

 

Many would say I am a freak

I fear there’s no one to give me the solace I seek

I wish these voices within never existed

They leave me feeling so torn apart and twisted

 

Within the darkness inside, there is one light

One that helps me get some sleep at night

When I pray to God up above

He conquers the voices with his love

 

Now and then I forget to seek His hand

Thinking that alone I can make a stand

Then the voices pull me into waters deep

Gnawing at my soul, causing me to weep

 

I wonder at times if this will ever end

God, your help please send

Don’t leave them for me to conquer on my own

“Oh child, don’t you know, you’re never alone.”

 

Some days are a difficult for me, I must admit

Though overall I am usually able to keep my wit

I tell this to you all now because I’m no longer ashamed

To tell you about these voices within that can’t be named

 

They don’t define me

That is something I finally see

I hope you can see that’s true

Let my heart show you with the things that I do

Dancing With the Wind

Image

The wind makes its presence known today

And it asks me if I want to come out to play

Oh what the heck, it might be fun

I think I’ll take my kite out for a little run

 

I let it soar way up high

Taking my dreams upon it to the sky

They dance merrily with the wind

Free to explore, from my mind they’re unpinned

 

As I see them take flight

I am filled with such delight

I do not wish to reign them back in

For with the wind, they have found their kin

 

It is not right to smother a dream

To hold it close, no matter how right it might seem

It needs to be free to catch fire and fly

To soar like eagles in the night’s sky

 

How else might they come true

If the only one who knows about them is you?

Don’t let fear take hold

Let your passion make you bold

 

As the time to go inside draws near

What I must do has become clear

Come rain, sleet, frost, or snow

Upon the wind, my dreams will still flow

Currently I have 251 subscribers to my blog, normally I try to catch this when it’s at an even number, but sometimes these things happen…..so anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to each and every one of you for supporting me and my blog. It means more to me than I can say. Thank you for letting me inspire you and thank you even more for inspiring me! Being a part of WordPress really has touched my life abundantly. You’re all awesome, just sayin’. 😉

DJ, do NOT press repeat….

“When the way you look at things change, the things you look at change.” I have heard/read this quote so many times and I haven’t realized just how true it is until today.

In the past, I found more to complain about than to be thankful about. I probably sounded like a broken record to many or another analogy I thought of today: The overplayed song on the radio that every time you hear it makes you cringe and want to throw the radio out of the window or perhaps at a brick wall. I also made the same mistakes over and over again; loved ones grew tired over the years watching me hit repeat over and over.

The truth is, I could still whine about a lot of things, but I have come to realize that all of that complaining only drove people away and made me more miserable than I was to begin with. Misery doesn’t always love company either, let me tell you. Let us not wallow together, that just makes us all feel worse. I still make mistakes, but now I learn from them and quicker than I used to. It’s amazing what a little maturity and a different perspective can do. 🙂

Sometimes there are things that happen that are out of our control that are horrible, devastating, depressing, cruel, and just hard to move on from. Financial woes, relationship issues, health problems, car troubles, loss of loved ones, and so on throw themselves at us along our journey and sometimes we stumble, fall, and get hurt. Hardships in life can’t be prevented and I know now that the goal isn’t to try to have a perfect life and nor is it to have a heart made of stone so as to get through life without getting your heart broken or your pride wounded. I believe it’s to come through all of life’s troubles having learned and grown.

I view life differently now. Yes, there are and will be things throughout my life that don’t pan out the way I’d like and bad things will happen to me, but I choose to hold to my faith, and push through every storm that comes my way till the sun shines again. It may rain for a good long while, but I know it will end, and in the meantime, let’s go jump in a puddle or two till it does, eh? I have a lot to be grateful for and now that I see that, now that my perspective on life has changed, I see my life as something beautiful and to be loved and lived to the fullest extent possible.

Also, while we may not be in charge of other’s actions and reactions, but are of our own, we’re going to make mistakes throughout our lives. I believe that each mistake is a chance to learn something and to grow from it. Though some keep making the same mistake over and over, like dating the same guy so many times that people are saying: “Just stay broken up or just stay together already.” or eating that food you know that will make you sick. I guess some people take longer to learn than others? Some perhaps never learn certain lessons, but I do believe for the most part that fear of making a mistake should not hold one back from living. We’re all going to fall and fail sometimes, but if we use that as an excuse not to do things, then I feel we’re not truly living. Life is full of risks, many worth taking. Learning and growing happen throughout life. If you ever feel you’re done growing, then you’re done living.

That is where my head is at today: Find new ways to see your life, don’t let fear keep you from enjoying life, mistakes are your next chance to grow, live your life to the fullest, and remember your happiness depends on you and not those around you. Have a great day! Life: Un-paused, hit Play.

Life isn’t always beautiful, in fact, sometimes it’s downright ugly. While we can’t always control what happens to us or around us, we can control how we react and that in turn determines a lot of what follows. Life can be a wondrous journey, yes with bumps and bruises along the way, but still beautiful overall if we allow it to be. I choose personally to try to focus on the positive more than dwell upon the negative so that I may truly enjoy my life. I say try because there will be moments when it’s hard to be optimistic, but in the end, I am able to find the good. I hope it may be so for you all as well. It’s up to you, so how will you choose? 🙂
