I have made it my mission in life to share my story with others, in hopes that each time I share with the world, it helps one person on the journey to finding the happiness we all deserve. Below is a copy and link of the speech and music I have written for a wonderful, inspiring group of people. I have taken pieces from songs, poetry, and prose I have written in the past year, and have compiled a message that I think can help to feed the soul. Now, I feel it is the time to take that speech and touch others further.
This is the story of how a girl who has been through tragedy, death, poverty, crippling heart break, and sickness let love in. This is the ultimate love story, for it teaches that even if you have loved so greatly in life, and lost all that you had, it does not mean your life is over. Instead, the rain redirected you. Letting go of what you thought was meant for you is a journey of its own. But realize, this was meant to serve as a beacon of change, and prepare you to not only love yourself, but love the one that was finally meant to surface in your life. The one who was destined to be there all along. Your spiritual master.
The Beginning of Our Love Story
It’s an overwhelming emotion, as it courses through your veins. For as long as you could remember, all you wanted was a miracle, so you went on bended knee. From there, you saw that truth was not so scary after all.
I miss the days when fitting in was all I ever feared. When life was planned out for me
And the light was all I could see. But now it’s clear that as life moves on
I must move on too. Where do I begin to find my new?
It is said that life can only be fully enjoyed if one allows the power of self love to guide the way. Allow yourself to live in the center of your own spotlight.
If I could see that little girl again I would tell her, never lose your faith in life. If I could speak to
that little girl, I would surely say. Never let anyone, take away what you think, you’re world
should be what you want it to be. And just like that that little girl grew up to be, someone who
still believes. Who still believes.
We are not defined by our fears; fears only exist to balance the positives we have. Fear humbles us, and keeps us providing what the world around us deserves: our full attention. It means that finally, there is something in your life to fear losing.
Now I can see her, all grown up, living out her days. She is no stranger to holding her ground,
when it’s pouring rain. The world is so clear for that grown up girl, she only has to find. The
strength to leave her fears behind, for when she sees all she wanted standing right before her
eyes, she must be that little girl, and let love in.
Everyone reaches a point in their lives when they must stop what they are doing and start again. Are you brave enough to say goodbye to what is no more?
This is my song.
And I write to those who learned all their lessons the hard way.
This is the time,
And it’s time to go.
And leave behind all the heart break. It’s taking over now, the strength that is found, deep inside your soul.
This is the chance, for your brand new start, a chance to follow your own heart. These are your
days, don’t let them go to waste. For this is your life, and it needs you to be brave. I’ll be brave.
So look within the hour glass, that manifests time itself. Why do we need to see time pass, in order to appreciate its wealth? Too many watch from up above, and not enough seek the courage to live. But try and try as we might, we cannot force someone to see that beauty is not found from the outside. No, it is found within the seconds, within the eyes of another being.
I just want to hold your hand, all through the night. I’m struggling to find the words, to describe
what I feel inside, so I’ll sing for you. I’ll sing for you.
Suffering builds a drive inside that cannot be replicated by desire alone. Suffering creates need. A destiny. I believe in destiny, and I believe suffering ultimately leads to our motivation to seek the happiness that does exist in this life…
We all need to find the one, who makes our soul take flight.
And I can say I’ve found the one, I want to hold for the rest of my life. I’ll play for you, until the
sun comes up once more, and I’ll sing for you, until I’m sure that you can see, how much you
mean to me.
Let love into your life. For once you let the power of the universe in and allow the forces that brought love into your life to completely enter, there will be no stopping you.
Lately I’ve discovered that I can see the world, in the eyes of you. I always thought I’d find my
more, in the path that is my own. But you showed me I was so wrong all along. My dreams
came true the moment I met you. The moment I met you.
Instead of letting the road dictate where you travel, be the road…it may crack, and on it may be found, only frustration and pain, but the road forever creates its own escape…It provides a seed.
Sometimes, all that little seed really needs, is a cold awakening..
The rain is pouring down on me,
Freedom is what I need,
I may not have the answers for tomorrow,
And time is only ours to borrow.
Your strength lies in what you defeat,
And your courage will shine when you’re weak.
You may find yourself back where you began,
But don’t you worry, you faced it once, you can face it all again.
However, there will come a day, when one decides it is the time, to take that seed, and allow it to root into the ground, allow the roots to grow just enough, then tear it up. Tear it up, for it will take all it needs from that ground, then allow it to move on, and grow, then tear it up once more, for there is much more in store, for that little seed.
It will transform.
Then, It will no longer be a seed, nor a plant, nor a tree, nor another common part of nature. No, it will be a rare, beautiful, majestic breed.
So surrender, to the power of love, I’m jumping right in
Surrender, it will help you let go of. The lies that your spirit is wounded of.
So surrender, put your trust in love.
We can all learn a lot from what nature provided to that little seed. For each time we trust in the ground below, and plant our roots, we allow ourselves to change, and renew. So live in this life and give every chance all you have. For if you don’t open yourself to the world, how do you ever expect to grow?
The sky may control when it rains. And the earth may control when it shakes, and the world,
may crumble at our feet. But love will always give us what we need. Love will always give us
what we need. When you surrender.
We live for the night, and where it takes our minds, beyond what is on the ground. We don’t follow in the earth’s example, for we jump right in, and expect what we want at the next day’s appearance. We expect our new life to begin, at the stars’ departure, the hope that springs up from the rise of the sun. But, there is no predicting fate; there is only a beginning.
We push it away time and time again, And we start to forget how to feel, Until another disrupts our path, And forces us to kneel. For the power of love is greater than one can ever know,
Let it all come down,
Let it all seep through
I finally found the strength, so I can see the truth.
Let the lies unfold, and let your soul take control.
Of this life, that is, your own.
We forget our driving force, for we are drowning and absorbed in facts and theories and plans, that we forgot that power is found in the hand Of another being, of a love that can feed us. We forgot that simple power; love is the strongest high to be on. With the power of love in our hand, we become the one who can save the world from pain.
I didn’t know what love was until I found you.
Didn’t know what it meant for me,
Now I know that you were sent to make my soul complete.
You are what I need,
You are what I need.
To face this life, to take a stand. Maybe fairytales can help you find your way, past the walls, we create.
Love is always found in the fall,
Love is where you find the beauty of it all.
When you stand at the tip you can see the world before you. You notice from a different view, it’s all smaller than you thought. There is a bigger picture and what you really ought to know is that this feeling now you had it all along. Let another love you, and you will not have to work so hard to see the light. For the door will then be opened, and you can then begin again.
On this road, you’re never alone.
Identity Magazine is all about empowering women to get all A’s in the game of life – Accept. Appreciate. Achieve.™ Every contributor and expert answer the Identity 5 questions in keeping with our theme. Their answers can be random and in the moment or they can be aligned with the above article. As a team, we hope to inspire and motivate ourselves and inspire you to get all A’s.
1. What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? What are you still working on accepting?
To just do it. If you want something, go after it. If you want it all, then work for it. Always accept that it won’t be an easy road, but it will ALWAYS be worth it. The challenge is keeping your faith when the road becomes rocky. That is the time you need to believe in yourself the most.
2. What have you learn to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? What are you still working on to appreciate?
I forever grab life by the horns. It is scary at times, but I know that if I just accepted what was easy, then I would instantly become bored. I know my purpose in life is beyond what is definable.
3. What is one of your most rewarding achievements in life? What makes YOU most proud? What goals and dreams do you still have?
I took the leap of faith to actually do what makes me happy. No, it is most definitely not an easy journey. However, if you keep growing, and changing, and putting yourself in situations that allow you to create something out of nothing? Well, a year will go by and you will realize, you are much closer to being the person you have always dreamed of being. That is truly the beauty of living life.
4. We all have imperfections, so we think. The truth—we are all perfectly imperfect. What are your not-so-perfect ways? What imperfections and quirks create who you are—your Identity?
I am a very sensitive person, and with that comes my feelings being crushed very easily. However, I feel this creates my identity. This sense of vulnerability allows me to share my soul with the world, and create music that is unique and real.
5. “I Love My…” is an outlet for you to express and appreciate all the positive traits that make you…well… YOU! Sharing what you love about yourself will make you smile, feel empowered, and uplift your spirit and soul. (we assure you!) Identity challenges you to complete the phrase “I Love My…?”
Passion. I love everything and therefore, even when I feel lost in the world, the world ALWAYS provides for me. Allowing the world to love me has been my greatest challenge, and continues to challenge me each and every day. However, there is no place I’d rather be than this life I am in right now.
