The Strength In Our Scars

When it comes down to it, I think if any of us are going to make it, we simply just have to believe. We have to believe in the power of the small things, in the comfort of a cup of coffee, in the calming, melted hues of a sunrise, in hearing our mother’s voice on the other end of the phone after a long day. We have to believe that we can overcome whatever weight life ropes to our spines, whatever circumstances our choices or our shortcomings throw our way. We have to believe in love; we have to believe that we are worthy of it, that we are deserving of being chosen despite the insecurity or the flaws or the mistakes. We have to believe in our ability to take care of the people we care about; we have to believe that we are enough for them. We have to believe that we have permission to be whomever the hell we want to be, that we have the capacity to be truly, and deeply, happy. We have to believe that we aren’t alone, that people see us for who we are and what we have the potential to be. If we’re going to make it, we have to believe that we are growing. We have to believe that we are meant to be here.

      Humans are strong. We rise above adversity. And with our own pain comes the power to lift others up. Our light shines through. Like Japanese pottery mended with gold—the art of kintsugi—humans become even more beautiful with our flaws.

      Yes. Everything is possible. It is,as everything before it appears to you,in front of your senses,become definable by your senses in space on physical scale,it takes birth/it appears in your mind as an idea/as a thought. what ever you are able to think/to conceive,it becomes possible on physical scale.

        When you believe you not only see the things possible on a physical scale, you also create a realm of an unseen force to help you, in another term, your spiritual realm will blossom. Where you can celebrate your being, where hope rises, where your faith goes to another level and your love sees yours and others with a different lens. Natural and supernatural collides to create a new you!

      English philosopher James Allen wrote: “As a man thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.” Stoic and Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius wrote: “A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.” Poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: “A man is what he thinks about all day long.” Author Earl Nightingale said: “We become what we think about,” and Mark Twain wrote: “Life consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that is forever flowing through one’s head.”
