with your soul,
to your soul's Creator.-BA
Learning the importance of spending time with yourself, beyond yourself, is the greatest gift to yourself. Spending time with yourself allows you to identify with your feelings. Spending time beyond yourself, helps you to get out of your feelings. The more time we give to ourselves, the deeper we get to know our soul. Knowing our soul then becomes reflections of our soul’s Creator.
The world is a gallery of basic commonalities. You are a unique, unparalleled being. The challenge is to be deeply rooted in who you are. Possessing the ability to know and understand that the events of your past, seduce the refinement of your future. Many choose to forget their former days, yet they leave an influential fragment of themselves behind. The outcome of residing in your past results in being stranded. The reward of living out your previous struggles is affluential. Strength is gained through our times of adversity. Courage is found through our perseverance. The recognition that enduring tough times leads us to a flourishing future can aid us through them.
The ugliness of your past does not define the beauty of your destiny; it enhances it.
Beauty is in the Eye of Destiny
Who we are and our journey ahead, would not be as beautiful without the pain of our past. The beauty of life is the art of brokenness. We become refined as we go through the process of forgiveness. We become polished as we go through the process of healing. We become exquisite through restoration.
