Fall seven times, stand up eight ~ Japanese proverb

We already know that the things we don’t say are these which hunt us most, no matter how much time passes by, but we should also realize that everything we are afraid of will follow us with every single step we take.

Have you ever wondered why your childhood wishes don’t always ‘come true?

Have you ever wondered why you’re still so afraid of stupid things, which cannot possibly hurt you, like darkness, spiders, forest or voices?

You wished and hoped and prayed that they will all go away once you grow older. Yet even after a quarter of a century you’re still in the same situation but even more terrorized than before.

While we grow up, we realize that fears don’t disappear with the flick of the fingers, dreams don’t become true by a wish we once made on a shooting star. Nothing happens just like that, but rather because we work on it consciously or subconsciously.

We align ourselves step by step toward our already chosen path, toward the yellow brick road, on which we wished to walk since we were little petunias.

We push ourselves out of mud and blossom like beautiful colorful delicate lotus flowers.

We blow the dust away and allow us to be light.

Like a Phoenix we rise from our own ashes and are better than the last time we did it.

As we alone rise, we alone fall but don’t ever dare to lose faith in tomorrow and if you ever do please remember this beautiful and wise Japanese proverb: “Fall seven times, stand up eight”.


A long way to go

Say no instead of yes if you want to, say never instead of maybe if you feel so. Allow yourself to come to an absolute happiness by eliminating negative energy from your life, from your halo. Be good and receive good, be positive and even more positivity will surround your life. Live for today and not for tomorrow, and my dear: please stop pressing all your feelings down, stop hiding them, stop trying to wash them away. You know that they will come back and will hurt you because you didn’t allow yourself to feel free, you didn’t allow yourself to feel happiness in your soul.

You teach and preach and talk about being who you are, about loving someone for what he or she is but your self-esteem is lost somewhere in our endless universe.

You hide behind a mask every day and occasionally take it of in front of the people you feel safest with.

But why my dear? Why are you so afraid of the real world? After all you’ve been through, do you still think you can’t possible endure the truth? You read, you knew, you’ve heard from different mouths that you’re already living the truth, every second of your life, yet you still hide from your own soul.

Listen to the drops outside, enjoy this beautiful moment, these rain-drops which might disturb some people but save someone else’s life. Rain and sunshine are equally important for all of us, like love and pain, they walk beside us with every step we take.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and yes, it does leave marks behind, pain still feels present sometime but don’t let it take the best out of you, don’t let it conquer your halo, don’t let it possess you again.

Listen to the rain-drops and free yourself from all the bad and negativity, free yourself from tomorrow’s thoughts and live now!

Love from the bottom of your heart, love like there’s no tomorrow, love unconditional, love without wanting anything in return, love everyone and everything, love the good and the bad, love the sun and the moon among the start, love the earth like you love the sky and my dear love the sea as much as you love the mountains.

Go out and try to find yourself back to you, go out and try everything you’ve ever wanted to try, go into the wild and search for your soul, go out and love yourself first because you still have a long way to go!
