There are two types of people in this world. Those, who when ignored, feel sorry for themselves…and those who find a special spark in their hearts to ignite the pain and strive towards greatness, ultimately being so good…that they couldn’t possibly be ignored anymore.
At times, when going down a path, one that has never been traveled before, things can get very very quiet. This ins’t the first time that I have talked about this, but it continues to come back up over and over again. As I dive farther into what I am up to, everything stays the same, yet the volume gets turned way down. Maybe that’s why I was able to be woken up last night? Because I am actually open enough to listen?
But what I do know is that I have this desire to continue feeding off of the pain of being dismissed and ignored by those who I reach out to. Like I said above, you can either feel bad for yourself and sorry for yourself, or you can use that pain as fuel. For some reason I am attracting this type of thing into my life, but on the other hand, it is a dose of motivation I need in order to push myself forward.
There is this great quote that says “Hustle until you no longer have to introduce yourself.”
That really gets me going. The idea of putting all of the sweat, blood, soul, and tears into something over a long period of time and then having the world see what you have created. Hopefully it is a positive thing that can inspire people to live powerful and bold lives as well. Hopefully, you can be incredibly proud of what you have done because it improved the lives of many many people…and your own.
One of the hardest things to do is love when you feel unloved.
I mean, this is really hard. But I am always sent back to putting out positive energy and love. No matter how many times it doesn’t work, I am making the effort to try. Maybe that is the key to this whole thing. That eventually something is going to stick against the wall. I am banking on that happening.
How we treat others is a direct reflection of how much we like ourselves.
When you can treat the person you have never met, or the one you might think is a little bit weird, with kindness and compassion, you truly value what is inside your heart. I have my moments, I think we all do, but in general my compass is pointed in the right direction.
This post took a turn down a different direction I thought it was going to go…or maybe, it didn’t. Maybe it ended up precisely where it should have.
“You will return”
I think this is part of what I am coming back with.
