Better Me!

Past to Present: Lies to Truth: Exist to Growth

Crazy how one life event can open so much. To a point of reviling other peoples skeletons. Those skeletons then attack another innocent person and their life. During this time, creating little tiny beans that grew up and knew to be better then the past environment. It is very sad, pathetic, and fearful of what each generation brings to the next generation. It actually is quit sad that the authorities (parents, family member, boss, spouse, etc..) and take advantage of their authority. It is also quit mind boggling to think one has that much power of authority. It breaks my heart that weakness was stronger then doing right. What keeps a person closed minded to the truth? How and what continues to lurk inside these people to continue to violate others? Then turn around and justify their action. To justify their action to the point if not strong it will destroy that person.

Do we excuse past behavior to keep it silent? Is it silent because it has not resurfaced yet? Does it mean different generations it’s justifiable? Does it mean Different titles its justifiable? Does it mean excuses and blaming is tolerated to rid your horrible choice on another person who is at no fault? Do you justify and truly believe your validation to rid you of your choice so you do not have to take responsibility?

Taking responsibility for yourself, your actions, your choices, your words, your behavior leads to life of freedom and peace. Taking ownership of self frees you from what holds you back. You can’t change the past. You can’t control anyone but yourself. You can only move forward and better yourself. Your actions, choices, behavior effect those around you. What kind role model are you? What kind of sample are you setting? What kind of effect is your presence? Are you the continuous problem? Why is it so hard to take responsibility for self?

How do you forgive those you love, those you trust, those you respected, strangers, friends, family, choices, decisions, behaviors, actions, words, reactions and the truth? How do you let go of the suffering, the unknown, the pain, the behavior, the fear? How do you grow and move forward from the environment one has known their entire life? What does it take to be better then your past, your destruction, your self pity, your self excuses, your self titles?

What in your life is stopping you from moving forward? You have this one life. Do you choose destruction or growth? But I hope you choose Growth for the importance of your one life. Moving forward is doing something for your self each day. Rather it is getting out of bed the first day, eating a salad, cleaning your house, walk, making it on time for appointment or work, reading, researching, saying no, tackling your self that is steps forward no matter what the step is. We tend to forget we all live a different life. We follow and not lead. Why live someone’s else’s life when you have your life right in front of you. It’s your creation, your life, you and only you create your life but all I can say you have to work for life you want unless you are that fortunate one who gets it handed. Biggest advise I pass to you is give your negativity, your past, and your future barely to no time (thoughts, in your head) and let it go. Be in the NOW! Give your time to being present and tackling moving forward.

To give advice is easy but doing the work is hard. I write about myself and pushing to be better. What helps me to be better, to move forward. Life is hard and truly we are alone. I will continue to write about myself to help myself grow. To help others realize their worth and we all have a story. Some are plain Jane and others or wild, crazy, and unfortunate. Thank you for taking your time to read. Shereen Leyden
