A Bad Morning

My dearest morning,

If you didn’t notice yet, every time we think or have conscious that we are ready to have or accept whatever we wished for us, it seems that we attract the opposite and we have to go through the toughest times.  I believe that this is just life testing us to see how prepared we are to get what we wished at this point. Some people doesn’t realise it and breaks down, give up not producing enough belief to unblock our own fears. Other people, even if not conscious of that – the so called optimistics -, find energy and resources to keep fighting and fighting, keep finding power and strength to unblock, to overcome these periods of time.

This usually happens when we wrongly think that we are ready to the next step: we are never ready… and this is life in its best.

Constantly we are tested: body, mind and soul. Physically with health issues, with our own limits that can always be worked out and stretched with safety. Integrity, honesty, personality… even on our own believes. Self-esteem. Love. We are just constantly tested, sometimes when we less expect. Sometimes to the very limit of our own consciousness. Or even subconscious.

That’s why is so important to have main keywords in our mind, always upfront, to create deals with our consciousness, making sure that it doesn’t get weaker, making sure that the one who’s always in control is our own self, not conscious nor subconscious, even less physically. The whole. The I. We are the only owners of ourselves – repeat with me: I am the only one who can control my own self!

Even in the most daily little things, when we have to face something new, the monster is only monster if we allow it to be, if not, we just find it ridiculous being able to overpass, turning the monster in “air” that can be easily blown away by us.

Every bit of our own body, mind and soul should be cared, accepted, loved by us. Shouldn’t be easy target for tests, monsters, fears or disappointments. How many times we become ill just because we are not comfortable and so we are not taking care enough of a specific bit of us? Caring, accepting and loving each part of us creates the best defences – self defences – no matter if it’s physical or a mind’s bit. That’s the self-esteem: our own defence, energetic field to keep us protected. Healthy. Alive.

Life is always testing us, our limits, our strength or our dreams. But we are life itself, so not only most of the painful tests of life are created by our own mind – not conscious – as the most important is that we are the only ones who are able to fight and overcome them: not allowing fears to take control. Being us, building ourselves every single moment of our lives.

In the Pacman generation, or even in the generation post-pacman, we all keep creating better scores. Eating and destroying our own monsters with pleasure, the monsters we keep creating by killing others, creating that readiness feeling of “I’m ready for the next step”. With pleasure. Belief. Beating every monster to keep living the best way. Beating our own scores. Being champions. Being alive. Being humans.

The moment you really, honestly and deeply care with yourself like you honestly care the one you love, you’ll get rid of any monster… because most of the monsters get scared with the best you have: your own self. Your Inner one.

Remember just one thing: Not every morning is a bad morning, but when it happens, make yourself a good one.
