Wisdom Notes-24

When You Are Blind: You Hear Things Differently; You See Things Differently; You Feel Things Differently; You Walk Differently; You Touch Things Differently…

The same is with life: when you’re going through things, you handle accordingly to how you feel inside. It affects your decisions and the way you handle things; it affects the way you see things and it affects the way you get things done.

Hurt, Pain, Lost, Fear & Needs has a way of getting in the way of your blessings.

Decision

Decision means: to make a choice between one thing or another, between one person and another. Decisions come from within. We often pour what we have known into others, into their lives… We are used, worn, cracked and stained. We make decisions based on what we feel, where we’ve been, what we’ve done and what we have been through in our lives. We make decisions for other based on those same life lessons. Decisions, no matter how large or small, alter our lives. They re-direct our path and bring about a change.

From My Heart Decisions without wisdom, is like a blind man driving a car 100 miles an hour on the freeway. Good decisions come from having patience, wise thoughts. You should never make decisions when you’re emotional, hurt, angry or confused-the eyes don’t see clearly. Every decision has a conscience.

Take responsibility for your choices rather they are good or bad. Blame no one for the reasoning behind your decisions. Stress is relieved by making a solid, healthy and wise decision.

Confusion

Confusion is a mind shifting in the wind without directions or purpose; easy to detour; unstable in every way. A confused mind struggles to make healthy decisions. Confusion can blind the heart.

Confusion: Being raised to believe one thing but heart and spirit learns differently and your torn between the two; When people hurt your heart but your heart still wants to love the one that caused the hurt; Hating your mate but loving the children you share; Struggling to be someone you’re not; trying to fit in with crowds that you don’t belong in; Doing wrong when you know what is right; Hating your job but you need the money to provide for your family; Trying to balance life, love, foolishness, self struggles, finances when all you can think about is being free; Confused between the lessons of your past and being positive about your future; The struggle between good and evil.

From My Heart: To avoid confusion- make a choice, make a decision, hold on or let go, stay or go, hang in there or walk away, believe or not believe, trust or don’t trust, do what is wrong or do what is right, be who you are and suffer the outcome or be who everyone expect you to be and be happy either way, change or stay the same. Make up your mind and heart. Take responsibility for your choices and actions. Live with your mistakes or forgive yourself and move on. Nothing makes sense without truth and honesty within one’s self.

Blind

Blind Blind (not by choice) – restricted vision or no vision at all. Blind-to see and not see. Blind- un-willingness to see- sometimes the past keeps the future in darkness. Blind- when the eyes see and refuse to believe- believing brings about change. Blind to the truth- too painful to accept, accepting the truth cost more than your willing to pay. Blind- seeing what you want to see, seeing what is comfortable, seeing as you have always seen, seeing one way with one mind frame or mentality. Colored blind-Certain colors your eyes cannot see; unable to separate from other colors. Selective Blindness: blind when it’s convenience and seeing when it’s safe to see.

From My Heart: Being blind by choice doesn’t make it any less real. Knowing the truth and not accepting it, doesn’t make it go away. Denying the truth, you are only lying to yourself and others. See. Accept what you see. Take responsibility. Make a choice and make a change. If you need glasses, get some.

BeingAlone/Loneliness

Being Alone Loneliness is a state of mine. It causes some people to lower their standards and compromise their values and morals. For some, loneliness drowns wisdom, hide strength and blind the eyes from the truth. Sometimes it’s easier to substitute, compromise or adjust for a Ms. or Mr. Right Now.

From My Heart: People say that there’s someone for everybody, Is there? They say that you will know the Right One, when the Right One comes alone, Really? People say that, when you stop looking for someone or don’t want anyone in your life, that’s when the Right One comes alone, Do they? You rather spend every waking day and night trying to program your mind to believe these things. You constantly try to get your heart to die to all that you desire or deserve as if this will allow love to happen. Sometimes loneliness causes you to hold on too tight, which destroy the chance for love to grow. Sometimes loneliness causes you to make a person you’re everything and you stop thinking about yourself. You make your mate become the things you never had like close family, best friends, father figures, mother figures or a savior-that replaces God. Sometimes in loneliness, you make people your reason for breathing, for living; when in fact, all they really wanted to do, was to date you, hang out with you and get to know you. No one person can be your everything-it’s too much pressure to put on someone and it’s unfair for someone to have to play so many roles to be in your life. Find peace in being alone with yourself. With God’s help, being alone feels a-hell-of-a-lot better than loneliness and being hurt.
