I recently celebrated my birthday, and I was gifted with the opportunity to see one of my top 3 favorite entertainers in the world...FANTASIA! I think I died, I know I screamed....I partially cried, yet, what I know I did without a doubt is stood in awe as she sang, performed and perfectly executed her song, "Lose to Win." I watched her resurrect an unbelievable vibration in the crowd, and I remember a time after thumbing through her memoir, and watching her Lifetime movie story, and voting endlessly for her on American Idol, just exactly what this woman had gone through... She stood there, beautiful and like a woman. I thought, and maybe this is a bit vain and narcissistic, that I want that for my life. What do I want? A crowning moment where everything has not been for naught, and every reason that I've believed myself for and doubted myself in will come to a crowning moment of definitive influence.
Sometimes, we worry about what we lost in the fire, the things that were acquired before the flames and then we lament on the ashes that have been produced as evidence of what we've come through, as opposed to acknowledging that we have indeed come through the fire! Alive, singed perhaps; devastated even; broken, weary, confused and emotional...but you came through! At times we assume that because of our social circle we will be supported in our endeavors, and there are times that we are, but my friends there is only so far your outside circle can take your inner vision. And to a degree....you are in this by yourself for your self! You've got to be willing to lose certain aspects of this journey, in order to gain a more clear direction on your path. What is it that you have, and/or surrounded by that is costly to you? What is it that you are soul-tied with that you cannot ever see yourself breaking away from? Is it a person, a social group, a belief system, an heirloom?
Whatever it is, the exchange within sacrifice has a broader reward than that of which limits you! The loss may seem like a monumental destruction, however, what it really is the detachment of you and your impossibility. Seven billion people, I am told, are currently co-habitating with me, in this earth seed...I want to be one of the lasting ones. We've lost so much to come to this point, both you and I, so that can only mean our end result is to win! Never let the remembrance of being overtaken in your past struggle, defeat you and what lies ahead. Losing only signifies that you were in the fight, but didn't take the proper measures in positioning yourself to win. Champion, you've got this! Be free with me?
I Love You.
