Welcome to my blog. This is the first time I have tried my hand at blogging. The purpose of my blog is to inspire others to rise from their ashes to find their own inner beauty. I have been on my own personal journey with this and it has been quite the challenge.
Today, we live in a world where we are surrounded with anger, bitterness, hate, resentment, jealousy, envy, and all sorts of ugliness. We all face storms, trials, hurts, pain and sadness. The things we wake up every day and strive for are the very things that create our hurts and create others to treat us poorly. We strive for success and riches, yet success bring out either the conceit in our hearts or brings out the jealousy and envy of others. We to be beautiful, pretty, skinny, whatever that looks like yet this becomes such a obsession that we lose who we are, we lose sight that we are all beautiful, we are striving for the wrong beautiful, that harder we strive for perfection, we become more ugly within or the more others become mean and ugly to us because they feel jealous, envious and their own insecurities make them bitter. We are striving for the wrong things, we need to be striving to love one another, build one another up, we need to be striving to be kind, we need to be striving to help others, we need to strive for things that bring beauty, the inner beauty. Of course, we all need to strive to do well in our jobs so we can provide for our families, yet but need to learn the balance of being able to do that without it costing us our marriages, our families, and our self respect. This world has become so self serving, I am so determined to change that. I feel so incredible when I make someone else day even if its by a compliment that I do serving my own needs and wants.
I have been on this intent mission of finding my worth in the darkness of my own worthlessness, being kind to those who hurt me, knock me down, laugh at me and have made me feel worthless by loving them and building them up. I want everyone to seek their own beauty within. I am striving to be someone who inspires others to do the same. The more I love on others and the more I point out the beauty in each person despite their ugliness the more I can see the beauty, strength, and courage within me.
I want this blog to encourage others to rise in courage to build others up, love them right where they are at and inspire them to grow by pointing out their own inner beauty. I want to encourage those who feel like there is no hope, they feel like they can’t crawl out of the obyess of insecurities or find their value as I have been there. My life experiences have knocked me flat on my face, wondering how many times I tried to rise I would get slammed down again.
WE are human, we all have insecurities, we all have our own ugliness, but we also have our own beauty that no one else can possess and we all have different strengths and weaknesses that if we exhibited those differently we could all start slowly putting others insecurities to rest by helping them where they are weak and in return they could also give to us where we are weak. If people could be real and raw and not hide behind a façade of being someone they think the world would accept, imagine how beautiful this world could be.
Being real and raw is courageous as it makes us vulnerable, yet I am learning it is in this vulnerability we truly see our own beauty and strength and it is starting to bring this whole new amazing light into my life. From the ashes we rise, burning is not always a bad thing, it refines us, and we emerge more beautiful than ever. It’s when we experience pain, hurt and suffering, that we also learn to be humble,learn humility, learn grace, and give compassion freely.
This is my journey of rising from my own ashes, to find my own beauty within and hope that it inspires others to do that same.
