All ↵ or Nothing ...

"But if you don't love

my EVERY flaw,

then you mustn't love me-

not at ALL ..."

- Lang Leav

Above is a piece of a poem that I fell in love with after reading it this past weekend, it's called "All or Nothing". I read it over and over until suddenly the last few lines resonated with me and I had to share what I was thinking.

Recently, I've been contemplating over a variety of things in my mind, that I am not to sure of how I should go about handling, but when I read this, it made my contemplation much clearer, it's "all or nothing".

Whether, you are trying to get a certain reaction from someone, reach a specific point in your life, or even just deciding on what look to go for at an event, you must pick and choose an option/path/method etc.

Not only must you choose an option but you also have to stick to it or things can get sticky, really fast. The moral here is if you know what you want ultimately, then you continuously go for it and work towards it until you get it!

All or nothing!

However, it is only when you aren't sure at all of what you want that you settle for a median. This is not always a bad thing sometimes a choice is not meant to be made at such extremes immediately, but this definitely depends on the situation and circumstance.

Note: No matter how indecisive you are at the moment, you cannot remain mutual forever; that will only leave you standing for nothing and falling for anything.

If you have had a lot on your mind,

this is for you.

If you've had a heavy heart lately, for whatever reason,

this is for you.

And of course, if you've been indecisive about any decision,

then this is for you.

I don't know about anyone else reading but the start of this year for me has not been that easy at all. Even though I was prepared for bumps in the road, I didn't think they would alter my plans for myself completely but they did.

It may seem as though I'm in a positive light and mindset all the time, but let's face it, I'm human and I fall into sad, dark, and discouraging places every once in a while but I am never there long enough to distract me from my competition, which is ME.  I've mentioned before through my blogs, I can be a bit of a crybaby at times, so being stressed is not a mental state that I (or anyone else for that matter) would like to be in but it's a state that I deal with.

I'm a very particular person when it comes to my future and I know exactly what I want and how I want things to go, so of course mishaps occur because the strongest get shook the hardest.

I tend to be a perfectionist and I despise the feeling of being stagnant, especially moving forward into the blooming years of my 20's!

But with that, I had to stop again, and reflect (because that is necessary in my life at least 5 times out of my day these days), and I realized that just because I'm not engaged in something at every second does not mean that things aren't falling together for me just a few days/ weeks/months ahead.

It's all about timing.

It's nothing but the mere fact that certain things just won't happen for you until it's time, and not a second before, so enjoy the ride.

Make the best of whatever is not going you way currently because things could always be worse.

In due time you will fly, continue to trust the process and have patience!

Until then you must use the struggles that you're encountering as stepping stones and motivation, with your destination always in mind. The storm is ALWAYS necessary to reach your victory!

"There is beauty in tragedy. For tragedy has the power to motivate the human mind. It can turn weaknesses into strengths and become greatness. Why would you focus on the storm, when you can focus on the rainbow?".

-Mirtha Michelle Castro Marmol

In order to attain, all that you want, you have to give all of yourself to yourself. What better gift then to benefit on all of yourself? I can't think of one!

Your potential that became your persona, your thoughts that became your words, your actions became your habits, your habits became your character, and your dream that became your actuality, all were worth it in the end.

Trust me, you get what you give. So why not give it your all?

Your scent, your touch, your smile and your gaze; replays in my mind like Christmas carols during the holidays. But you don't care... You picked up and left as IF a piece of my heart you never shared.

God has the FINAL say!
