There seems to come a time in our lives where we all desire a change of some sort. It is as though we get tired of the same predictable/usual routine and crave a new adventure in life. I like to call this the evolution of constantly redefining ourselves.
Webster’s dictionary defines evolution as, a process of continuous change from a lower, simpler, or worse to a higher, more complex, or better state. It goes on to say, a process of gradual and relatively peaceful social, political and economic advancement.
If we really think about it, this serves to be true in our everyday lives.
As we become more familiar and in tune with ourselves, we begin to gradually evolve into new beings.
In working with my Domestic Violence clients, I often remind them that when they first begin their therapeutic journey they start out as victims. However during this journey, my clients become more educated regarding Domestic Violence, analyze and assess their own behaviors, become more empowered in their decisions and begin to embrace their new worldview and make appropriate changes it is there that they start to transform from a victim to a survivor.
Well, the same goes for us as everyday women.
The more we live life fully, learn from our mistakes, continue to be open to the twist and turns life brings and remember to adjust accordingly, we continually begin to redefine the person we see in mirror each and everyday.
Now mind you, it is my hopes that we are all evolving into healthy and positive ladies. But I would be remised, if I did not acknowledge that we could also evolve into negative nonproductive individuals as well.
Let’s face it, not all of us had the best start in life. And with every negative experienced encountered, only gives more validation to embrace a negative outlook on life as a whole.
I get it.
Life sometimes can deal us a really bad hand and it’s not fair.
But unfortunately, that is also apart of life sometimes.
Nobody’s life is perfect, but it is a matter of perspective and how we react to adversity.
You see at the end of the day we have a choice to either stay in a victim or survivor mindset. It is the law of attraction at it’s simplest form.
If we want good to come to us, then despite what the circumstances may look like we must continue to spread good to the world. If we plant negativity seeds everywhere we pass, then negativity will surely consume our personal perspectives.
When we truly want to redefine our life for the better, we have to be willing to take the good with the bad in life’s game of trial and error.
Now it will never be perfect, but can be a fun filled, action packed adventure.
Think about it.
It can start out very soft and serene in our everyday routine, leading up to suspenseful and unexpected life events, followed by major disappointments and sometimes epic failures, but ending with amazing unthinkable triumphs and comebacks as well.
Sounds like a typical movie plot right?
Well, step outside the big screen and actually see and apply these series of events to your own real life story now!
We were designed to live happy and healthy lifestyles mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. But this requires us to let go of our past hurts and disappointments. It will be the only way to navigate and new journeys and life lessons along the way.
This is not a choice, but a decision we must make on a daily basis.
Remember we must never be afraid of rewriting and redefining our life’s story. We are truly the best authors to tell them anyway…
As always ladies, stay beautiful, blessed and divinely favored!
