Is nothing so amazingly beautiful like the moment you realize that you are the architect of your own life. That’s the moment you start to live it.
That’s the moment when you start to appreciate life at its true value. That’s the moment when you open your mind to see everything that is to be seen.
I remember like it was yesterday. I was around 18 years old and the girl I loved told me to watch “The Secret” because it will help me out. I was, before that time, a bitter insecure person who thought that is natural to feel sad and depressed. Who didn’t knew how to deal with emotional scars and how to get the life I truly want. But that single movie came as a shock.
“I am in control of my own life??!” This was something new for my mind, that my heart already knew it all the time. We all have it inside, we all know it. We just forget sometimes.
We forget we are in control because of how society is educated to behave
You see a sad person, that is sad without a reason, and you act like “I feel you man!” taping him / her on the back. If you see somebody laugh and smile for absolutely no reason you might think “who’s this lunatic?” 😂 That’s how wrong our society treats emotions like happiness and love. It’s natural to feel empty, unloved, depressed, unfulfilled? Definitely not. We are born to be happy, loving and living our dreams.
The minute you start to consciously realize that you are the shaper of your own destiny, that’s the minute you start to live your life. Because it’s not just about breathing and trying to survive with a job that you don’t like, it’s about creating those moments that takes your breath away and work on what you love. But the only way to achieve that is to consciously move in that direction.
I know that it’s within our power to control our destiny
Because when we shape ourselves, the way we think, the way we act, we will shape the results we generate. I don’t believe in positive thinking without actions. I believe in actions driven by positive thinking. I know that when you focus on what you want to have in life, you will going to get there no matter what.
It’s a laser-like focus that burns through any kind of obstacle. So it’s inside of us, this great power to control our own lives by controlling our own actions. And it’s something that makes you feel strong.
You should always feel strong. Because God gave us, all of us, the power of decision. As humans, we can choose what we do and how to react to any kind of situation. Nobody can take that away from us. That’s our own strength!
History showed us how a strong will is all it takes for a person to prevail even in the hardest circumstances. Other people may try to take your power of decision or may try to make you think you don’t have it, but nobody can take it away from you. That’s why is so strong and so powerful.
I’ve always seen the human spirit like a volcano
A never-ending volcano of emotions, passion, desires, ambitions. No matter how much you try to cover it, it will erupt viciously every time.
But you can control it. You can control in which direction you pour down the magma. You totally control in which direction your life is heading. That’s because you control the way you react to everything that is happening around you. You control what you do, how you feel, how much love you spread around and on what and with whom you spent your time.
You control the decisions you make in life. And decisions shape your life.
Is a very empowering feeling. If you ever see a depressed and constantly sad person, that mean they think they’ve lost the control over their own life. That is what makes them feel that way. When you let the chaos take over your actions, thoughts, and feelings, your life itself become a chaos.
You just let yourself carried away by the wind. The wind is random, but we are not leaves. We are strong creatures and we can withstand any kind of challenge and get where we want to get. There’s no end until we give up.
“You cannot change the wind, but you can adjust the sails.”
― Elizabeth Edwards
