Enough is where life sucks. Enough is where everything becomes monotonous. This is where most people, especially women, feel guilty for wanting more. We have been trained to give to others, to be happy with what we get, to not complain, and don't get me wrong, being grateful for the little things is a powerful tool... to help you create MORE. Because that's the real goal in life.
I know that we, as human beings, can feel that jealousy and vengeance is the normal.. and it is.. but it's not helpful or healthy. It just keeps us reliving those negative feelings and digging ourselves deeper into a hole we may never escape. So the next time you feel hurt or slighted, don't react.. just act.. like the person that you want to be.
When I think of empowerment I do not think of all the ways that we are better than someone else. I do not think of all the things that we can and should be doing to bring down another person or group. I think of ways that we should raise ourselves and each other up. We do not need to steps on the heads of our perceived enemies in order to rise, we just need to give each other a hand or a leg up.
So as important as the afterlife is to most of us, the only life we actually have control over right now is the one that we are currently living. How do you want to spend your days? Do you want to do, see, and accomplish as much as you can? Do you want to love, learn, and experience all of the wonders that this life has? Or do you want to blame, ridicule, and waste the little time that you do have to be the person you always dreamed you could be?
