In, Showing Up for Self. The Day I Stopped Worrying About Them, was the day something spectacular happened to me. I became the warrior at the helm of my own ship. My own lifestyle and thoughts. This vessel that had only known so many painful experiences.

Showing up for self; warrior mentality.
Some of my own choosing; others of how much I invested in others; how I committed too much of my amazing energy to them.
I look at my soul as if it were this immense, magnificent vessel. The ship’s wheel is the control for the course in which the ship moves; my mind performs this outstanding journey.
For a while, I was at a lost sea. The storms and turbulent waves would rock my world to and fro. I understand how easily one could lose themselves in a smartphone, if different ideologies. In other’s stories, and their traumatic experiences.
Our pain can drown us.
I understand how one can saturate themselves in the people who make you feel loved when you are not. In the falsehood of their own endeavors; their own suffering.
Amidst the storm; you are asked of something. How many times do want to fight the control’s of the waves? I have used to much resistance in holding onto the wheel with without instructions.
Showing up for self with strength.
This time I will practice in the steering of this vessel I live in; I will hold space for learning, adapt my thinking of one who ebbs and flows with the waves of the water. With the waves of things I no longer want; no longer serves the purpose of this course in my journey.
I, the warrior, will understand what I must do to honor my authenticity, how to hold deep breaths for solidarity of mind, body, and soul. I will encapsulate a transparency of thought and transformation in the powerful energy i entrust in my meaningful quest.
Please read this more than once.
It’s a mantra; an affirmation of my mornings. In the dusk; I ask myself if I’m showing up for life, for love of self and humanity.
I am in hopes that your are having a peaceful day! Sending love and light to all!
