No Matter What
Posted on October 25, 2023
No matter what happens, you have to find it within yourself to keep hanging on and refuse to quit.
Don’t ever give up. Don’t ever let your fears have the last word.
That’s not why you’re here.
You’re here to show others what’s possible with their lives if they believe in themselves and what they are capable of.
You’re going to get dragged through the mud.
You’re going to fail.
But all that matters is that you keep getting back up and you continue forward.
I’ve been thinking about the last decade of my life a lot lately. Where it began, all that happened and where I am now.
I thought about all of the mentors I had come across and the endless pages of books I got lost in.
It became really clear to me that I was seeking answers to a lot of questions that I had been asking for a very long time.
While the path wasn’t pretty at times, I found those answers.
This all brings me to this moment thinking about what’s right here in front of me.
I have a thousand stories to tell. Stories that have been locked inside, held too close to my heart for too long, because I lost my own inner compass leading me back to the truth and the point of this all – to be a light.
Joseph Campbell, one of my favorite authors and mythologists once said,
“Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.”
For quite some time, I’ve been asking myself that question, “What would bliss be like?”
I can see it in color.
Every time I close my eyes and let me imagination go to work the tapestries unfold in front of me.
I can see the truth that I spent so long searching for. But it’s not enough to just know the path in front of you.
You must be willing to walk it.
So get walkin’
