I had started to count kindness on my fingers. If you were like me, you barely got enough of it to fill in one hand, but I took what I could; I still do. I had learnt to lick it in scraps, taking whatever I could and storing it in a jar made of hope and I took a bit more out of it than I should have every time I was told I wasn’t enough. Which was every day.
You get to choose with whom and who you want to be. You get to toss away the thoughts and habits that aren’t serving you, and try and manifest some new ones you can. You can match your actions with that highest most exquisite version of yourself and see yourself change everyday. It is well and easy to love the light within and around you. However, can you reveal your darkness and have others love it as well?
Maybe the world isn’t too bright sometimes, it’s the darkness within that serves the contrast. Dwell on this belief and the world will be your shadow.
All is fair in love and war, but do you sacrifice your desires, dreams and freedom for love?? And as you battle each other to keep the love alive, you have to wonder if it is the poison or the elixir of life.
