To Value Life Is To Value Time

"A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song."

  -Maya Angelou

Time is the one element that flows without judgement. It does not care whether you are right or wrong. It keeps going and does not stop. Don't let the situation fool you into thinking life stops while you get yourself together.

Time has been abused, misused, misunderstood, disrespected, treated as though it has no meaning or value. Yet, it constantly keeps moving forward. It keeps fighting forward no matter what happens in front, around or behind it.

You may think you see no end to the situation, but no matter what you're going through you have to press on. You have much life in front of you.

The decision is no one else's but yours to make. So, press on. Fight on. Don't give up. Keep moving forward. Or, you will miss chapters out of your life that you can't get back.

Life is time and time is life. To value life is to value time and not waste any of it. This is by no means an easy thing to do. This means letting go and not being afraid to empty yourself constantly of toxic people and environments. When people do not value your time then they do not value you or your sacrifices.

You do not need someone to validate you. You have the power to validate yourself. Their thoughts and actions do not give you value. You give you value. They may have been the cause or a part of your pain. But you control when the healing can take place.

Before a wound can heal, what caused the wound has to be removed. Or else, the wound will continue to be deepened and infected.

In other words, your healing won't take place until you remove the knife that stabbed you and anything connected to it from you. Now you can cover it disinfect your wound with a newly revived positive mindset and surround it with positive influences that strengthen your core of belief in yourself.

When someone is told they will no longer walk again and you see them walking years later. What changed? They may have been told they will never walk again but they themselves believed they will. They never stopped believing and they worked hard on their healing. They rid themselves of anything and anyone that would tell them different and fought to press on. They fought to keep living.

This situation attacked your very heart and soul. But just like a person who was told they would never walk again and later started walking. You too can continue to believe in yourself. Separate what no longer feeds your soul and positive mindset. Allow the healing to take place and fight like hell to press on. When you rise up you tell your situation and show the people involved they have no power over you.

So, stand tall, walk strong, rise up. Let Go. Grow. Keep Moving. Live. Change your mindset you change your life.
