Rejection is a part of life, sometimes it’s unfair, and sometimes it’s because we are not prepared to step into that present situation. Most times, it’s because we are trying to fit into a space that’s not meant for us.
Always trust that sometimes rejection is pushing you towards something greater. Do not allow rejection to move you. Do not allow it to stop you from reaching higher. Do not allow it to harden your heart.
Continue to move with purpose, continue to reach into the depth and announce your presence. You will know where you are meant to be, you will feel the warmth and the peace that comes with being accepted.
Never push or stay where you know you don’t belong. Recognize rejection when it comes and learn to walk away. In doing so, you will save yourself years of being stuck in the wrong place.
We are all imperfect, and no matter how hard we try, sometimes life will bring us to our knees. So the choice is ours, to get back up and keep living, keep dreaming and fulfilling our destiny.
Trust the journey, have faith in the little things. What you tell yourself matters, the affirmations and love that you give away to others are great; but remember to give some back to yourself as well.
Think about where you are going.
Where do you want to end up?
What is your purpose?
Choose the path that represent your heart.
Embrace your uniqueness and your strength.
This poem is about learning to trust yourself again. I hope you some comfort and insight in these words.
The space between self-doubt and self-confidence is full of passion and desires
Sometimes we are the only thing holding us back. The space between self-doubt and self-confidence is full of passion and desires. We are capable of rising above the harsh realities of life, seeing things from new and exciting perspectives and curating a life worthy of our best efforts. Our potential is locked up in the circumstances that binds us to our pattern of living.
Our lives become a mundane cycle of doing and repeating, living inside a box, self-created and destructive. For some this is the norm, the brutal reality that life is trivial, and change is stagnant. Others find ways to tap into a reservoir of emotion, passion and creativity and live at their full potential.
I know, it’s easier said than done. life is different for everyone. The baggage we carry are often heavy, the pain we feel blind us to the reality that we are warriors, and what lies ahead is so much greater than what we’ve been through.
There’s power in the knowledge of who we are, and once we discover our purpose, we will see that our life, no matter how small and fragile, matters. it’s what we tell ourselves, actually; it’s what we’ve accepted that is killing our dreams.
Thispart of life is hard
We take without giving
We speak without thinking
We walk away
And forget to comfort
The brokenness in each other
We cling to unforgiveness
We brush aside
Years of sacrifice
We let go so easily
Of the good
I hope this post helps you along your journey to live brave and hopeful.
A Poetic Journey From Darkness To Light- Nikki Sterling
This book is very dear to me; it holds the precious words that I’ve kept hidden for years.
There’s truth, hope, healing, bravery, separation, heartbreak and love here Transformation is not pretty, healing is not attractive, its begging the tears not to spill in the school car line, it’s putting on your lipstick and smiling on the conference calls, it’s the prayingand the constant breaking every day that snatches the breath out of you.
On the good days you embrace the beauty of renewal, you remind yourself that you are stronger than the things that are trying to consume you. The first half of this book (Sackcloth) is a brutal journey through Sacrifice, Severed and Silence, and the second half of this book (Silk) is a celebration of Bravery, Love and Blessings.
Welcome to this space, rest a little, open these pages and let the power of words embrace you. This book is a conduit for every emotion that you try to drown in the dark pool of uncertainty. Know that your feelings are valid and it’s ok to open the door and welcome them in. Walk through your darkness unafraid, let your pain bear witness that you did not give up, that you did not nourish the space where discouragement live, that you welcome the light and set yourself on a path to healing, bound and embodied with the truth that you are not broken, you can self-generate the love you need to heal the deepest wounds.
