Unashamed

The road to freedom has only begun when you have escaped the greatest despair. The start is always the hardest yet the wind of liberation blows on you. “Live again,” it says.

Let not the past defeat your spirit nor let your mind tire. Take a moment and breathe. Recover from the strenuous accomplishment of breaking away. Gasp for liberty and life. Come awake.

Take pride in your strength to turn on a new leaf, to leave the known behind for what you do not foresee. Each step you take no matter how small is the mark of victory. You choose not to be beaten by what has been eaten away, knowing one day you will be filled again.

You lean not on the words and support of loved ones and friends, but on the hope of the future. You stand boldly before your scars and insecurities and walk over them, triumphantly. You are a fighter to say that you can… that you can and will wake up to a new day and walk on. You may tire but you are never defeated for what it’s worth.

 Your courage is to be praised for no one would want to brave risk on their own. But here you are, overlooking possibilities and the unfamiliar boldly. You wear a smile in spite of what you have yet to attain once more. Your years have not been wasted, nor your spirit crushed to give life a chance once again. It is a valor and fortitude to be hopeful.. to believe tirelessly.

 No, you do not drown in pity and despair of why you had to experience the storm before you could see freedom. You may never be the same again. You may be afraid and unusual. Yet you are special and tenacious to find your feet and soar to new heights.

 You are ready even though you have felt robbed. Think of it as only pain & injustice that has been taken away in exchange for beauty, peace & joy.

Herausforderung


Das Leben fordert Dich,
es wirft dich, so Du Dich weigerst
zu Boden,
um Dir dort
in tiefster Dunkelheit
ein Fenster zu öffnen,
durch das Du siehst,
wer Du in Deinem tiefsten Herzen bist -
ein mutiger Mensch,
der nur seinen Mut noch nicht erprobt hat
und darum um seine ihm eingeborene Kraft
nicht weis.


Warum ...
hinderst Du Dich also weiter daran
diese Erfahrung zu machen.


Wenn Du Gewissheit
über diese Deine Kraft erlangen willst,
dann springe jetzt!


Aus welcher Situation auch immer
Du der Erfahrung Deiner selbst näher treten willst
es ist ein Sprung ins Licht,
hinein in die wachsende innere Gewissheit Deines Ich.
