The Wall of Words
It’s insane how we can use words that serve to sabotage ourselves and not use words that will uplift us and add light to our lives and the lives of others. For those of you, that know where I’m coming from, I would be most honored if you would share your experience with this topic in the comments section.
I am so guilty of self-sabotage, and regardless of my contrary actions, it’s a struggle……..a constant struggle really to thwart words that damn, and replace them with words that breathe life. But the struggle is so very well worth it.
There are many that may say that this never happens to them, and my hat is off to them. But in the imperfect world that we live in, doubt shares space with the most competent, confident and credible people that I know. It’s human nature,not sub-human nature to question ourselves and our capabilities. We let society convince us that doubt is something to be ashamed of rather than acknowledging it first even verbally to others and then set upon the task of confronting it.
Some may see my wall of words as a lie that is contrary to my life. But in reality, this wall represents hope. It represents the light that either exists in my life or the light that I wish to see in my life. In either case, it’s reality or reality in motion.
Don’t try to read between the lines. The fastest and quickest way to an answer is to pose the question to the source for which the answer is most likely known. The same set of questions that others ask of you are sometimes the same set of questions that you need to ask yourself and you can start with these:
- Who am I really?
- What am I all about?
- What do I represent?
- What will I leave this world with when I’m gone?
- How will people remember me?
- How do I want people to remember me?
- Am I who I say I am?
- Are my priorities in order?
- What are my priorities?
- What is most important to me? In my life?
- How do I treat others?
- How do I want to be treated?
- Have I written my own life’s script or have I left it to chance?
- If I could change anything, what would it be?
I hope that the answers to these questions all breathe life into you and into the world. If they don’t, I hope that a lamp has been lit under your feet that will light the path that leads to the wall scripted with words that breathe life.
