At one point or another we may find ourselves at what could be the “lowest point" in our life.
SOME PEOPLE REFER TO IT AS. . .
"A Breaking Point"
"The Lowest Point In Life" or. . .
"Hitting Rock Bottom"
Whatever you call it, it is the time in life that you feel like things simply cannot get any worse. The crash could hit in many various ways, whether it be physically, emotionally, financially, spiritually or a combination of any of these.
Distresses from life can absolutely wear us down to a breaking point creating chaos with an unfortunate domino effect of despair. There is a lot going on that we have to fight through with all of our might, so the true aspect of who we are gets clouded by the negative things inside and outside of our control! We temporarily cannot see a clear enough vision of the future. But this is where we really need turn things around and look at it in a completely different way.
Breaking Point?. . . Or A Starting Point?. . . The Choice Is Yours and Depends on How You Look At It, Because It May Just Be A Window To Something Greater Or Better!
Let's Imagine . . .
Is it possible that when we are at your lowest point in life. . . that it may actually be a starting point for something greater or better? Maybe a re-birth of sorts for something new that we have not yet thought of or imagined. In this unfamiliar journey we've had to become completely aware and brutally honest with our self. Or at the very least. . . have started to become a better version of our self, whether it be realized or not.
When life has stripped away our external factors, it is the perfect opportunity to accept a broader and fresher outlook. A realization that, many of the materialistic aspects surrounding our life. . . suddenly isn’t as imperative as it once was. With this renewed sense of reality, we surrender to a higher power, create space for passion and creativity to better align our self with a sense of life purpose.
Consider this. . .
Even in your deepest despair there is a glimmer of light from deep inside, the size of a pin hole that has a place to shine through. This is the light of your soul giving you hope and guidance. The light gets bigger and shines brighter as you clear away the clutter of guilt, shame and fear, helping you to make room to see the bigger picture. Because the truth is that we do not reach our fullest potential until we are held down long enough in the pit of our struggle"s . . .emptied of everything that we thought made us who we are. . . to once again rise above and move forward, and therefore get us closer to our authentic selves.
Do you recall the negative chords that tugged at you when you were at your lowest point? Know that they were actually insightful clues of what you don't want in your life! If you are willing to learn and grow from the life lesson being taught during the time of turmoil, it will get you a step closer to the momentum of a grander new beginning!
During the time of turmoil you unknowingly planted new seeds. Now with both feet firmly on the ground . . . let self love over power the destruction from the breaking point, because you are now at a new starting point. . . with a better road ahead! The stronger version of yourself is starting to bloom and is now ready for new adventures and challenges.
Focus on your self growth from the breaking point experience and acknowledge the importance of the life lesson at hand. The best place that you can be in, in life is where you are not focusing on your external self but are instead focusing on what is in your heart. And remember that It is when we are stripped away of most everything outside of us . . . Is what makes our insides shine brighter! ttyl.
