Everywhere around us lays many forms of energy. The energy around us can be stored and utilized for greater, and later purposes. I think of ourselves much like I think of these solar panels. Have you ever had that feeling of absolute joy and peace when you step out into the sun light and just take it all in? Isn’t that feeling so energizing and euphoric? We as human beings are capable of amazing actions and ideas especially when we absorb the right kind of fuel, or energy. When we focus and surround ourselves with positive energy, we can store and hold onto it for later on when we need it most.
Does it ever seem like when you are the happiest everything else tends to just automatically fall in line? I can think back to moments of joy where I would appreciate the little things and focus on their worth just because I was happy! I can also recall on other occasions complaining and being unappreciative of so many things I am blessed with, simply because I was struggling to understand my present moment. Looking back on the ups and downs I’ve come to realize that I want to do the best I can to adjust my mindset and my own choices, in order to preserve and focus on my joy and gratitude for life.
I’m beginning to realize that as I get older and come more into forming my own identity, the things I want for myself get stronger. My thoughts as I mature become more independent than that of those around me, especially my family and those that have either raised, or guided and influenced me. Anymore those that doubt or question my dreams I politely ignore because they are too big and too strong. I will never forget the saying and or definition of perception. The phrase that stands out to me is something along the lines of , “people cannot see past their own level of perception.” This is one of those things that stuck with me, and will continue to for the rest of my life. What this means, or how I interpret it, is that no matter what, you are going to see the world differently from others, and no matter how hard you try to explain, or create understanding for others in regards to your life or vision, many will never be able to perceive your vision and dreams, like you. So what does this mean? It means that you have to fight for your dreams because only you can see them for what they truly are, and see yourself for what you are truly capable of! At the end of the day, that should only be “your” responsibility anyways. You are in charge of you! No one else.
If you are anything like myself, or even if you are unlike me, you probably have that spark in you. You probably have that little life force deep within yourself that maybe nobody knows about. Maybe it’s your little secret. Shhhhh…don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone. For I have my own as well. You see the spark can catch fire, and very quickly. We have to be the ones however to find the right fuel. The wrong kind, or too much too soon, can drown our spark forever. But the right fuel, and the right amount can transform it from a tiny glow, into a roaring flame. Just think, a spark might be noticed up close, but a wildfire can be seen from high above, and can warm and light up the world!
