Day Sixteen

Shake It Off~Mindset Renewal

There are moments in life when we feel trapped in a wall of disappointments. Some of these disappointments are caused by external forces. When I say ‘external forces,’ I am referring to people. Everyone is arrayed with diverse personalities and experiences. We have more differences than what we have alike; only faith brings our likeness together.
As we tread through life, our path may stumble upon weeds, thorns,and thistles. Once again I am referring to people. We may experiences moments when someone breaks our heart and as the cliché says, ‘cut us to the bone.’ Once your confidence in a person is breached, it opens the door to disappointment. If you’re not careful, bitterness will find root within your soul and slowly grow, being watered by your emotions and the remembrance of the dreadful event. 

Trust is the one thing that’s hard to recover once it’s lost. Once it’s damaged, a tidal wave of confusion will wash upon your shore. If you allow the essence of disappointment to attach itself to your mortal fibers,your mind  will continue to replay the moment of hurt with EMPHASIS. After the wall of trust is broken, the first brick must be laid by you. It is a humbling act that employs hope. And when the essence of disappointment returns, we must shake it off as a tree does a withered leaf. But, if you dwell in its essence, the same hurt will return, but this time more severe.
