I realized something big today. You may live your life in "tested mode" for a little while.
In this time you are challenged with fears, doubts, trust, loving, believing and accepting yourself.
Once you overcome the challenge, you will fee free, confident, full of love and trust.
This freedoms lasts for so long and then life decides to put change into your life starting the whole cycle over again, but on a different level.
The reason we continue to lose and gain the freedom is because if we get too comfortable and secure about freedom (and taking it for granted) we tend to cut back a little on striving to be better people.
So life decides for us when we need change before we get too comfortable.
We need to always strive to be our most highest selves, despite the challenges that may seem unfair at the time, but really benefiting us in the end.
Take each moment as a blessing and not for granted.
Don't be too comfortable in the level you are at right now, even if it is feeling inner peace.
Strive for MORE peace or whatever you need. It will be granted one day.
All you need is faith.
I wrote this almost 10 years ago...and it still teaches me today. What a random find today! Life is so awesome.
