Inward Journey

Often times we allow others to affect our journey, we forget that we are in complete control of our lives and the only way someone else can affect your’s is if you allow them the power to do so. One of my fave little inspirational posters I’ve seen floating around on the web says….”In order for you to insult me I would first have to value your opinion.” Does it seem a little blunt, maybe a little mean, yea probably. But simply put you can’t hurt me unless I allow you to, nothing you say, or do can affect me without my permission. I AM IN CONTROL OF MY LIFE. The inward journey is mine to take. I can go left or right at anytime and all anyone else can do if they care to, is follow me and encourage me on my journey because I have no time for anyone else. I’m learning as I value my own worth more each day that many people want to keep me down with them, the saying misery loves company is incredibably true. But it’s time to shake misery free, break the bonds if necessary and take this journey alone, this leg is mine and mine alone, no one can take it but me.

“The inward journey is about finding your own fullness, something that no one else can take away.” — Deepak Chopra

  1. Tammy this is so true!! Misery does live company and we have control over our inward and outward selves. I’m do glad we are learning all of this stuff today . I love this journey, even when it gets hard and I feel depressed, I know the outcome is going to be great!! Love you lady

  2. I love that quote! I think I need to learn how to not let others bother me so much. I tend to take everything personally, and let more things bother me than they should. Well it is a journey and it’s hard to let go and move on sometimes. I’m working on it. 🙂

  3. That is a great poster. I am all for respecting others and loving everyone, but I don;t have to value everyone’s opinions. They don’t always align with my life, so I don’t need them. Besides, you know how they compare opinions to assholes and how everyone has one.

    I spent enough time catering to others, when I find myself doing that now I stop and ask myself if they are worth the effort.
