What’s The Meaning of Life?!??!

What’s the meaning?  What’s the meaning of life?  What’s the meaning?  What’s the meaning of life?

Today has been deemed as a personal “mental health” day.  

*raising my hand* “I vowed not to overthink today, I vowed to listen to what the Spirit is saying and I vowed to make today all about me.

Right smack int he middle of my “mental health” day, I’m slapped in the face by reality. (Doesn’t it always happen that way?)

The Soul II Soul song “Get a Life [What’s the Meaning of LIfe]”  (which I haven’t heard in ages) comes to mind. (Side note:  Soul 2 Soul was a late 80’s British group).  

Elevate your mind…free your soul.

I’ve been taking work WAAAAY to seriously and as a result, I’m losing the passion and motivation to do what I love to do…make people aware and motivate them to change.  I’ve allowed people to steal my joy in a way that was hard to recognize at first.  I’ve labeled it as, being disenchanted with work or as a sign that it’s time for me to move on.  In reality, even if it is time for me to move on from my job, my assignment must be complete there before moving on.  I must “elevate my mind (above the madness) and free my soul” and allow myself to go through the process of experiencing and learning while I feel like I’m “stuck”

Don’t be afraid to be experiment.  Go ahead and implement your ideas.  Your notions, put them into motion.

I’ve been blessed with a creative mind, however, because of past experiences and yes, even hurts, I made up my mind that I wouldn’t allow people into my creative space, unless I completed trusted them or felt like they could somehow contribute to that space in my life. Operating in this capacity has left me without an accountability system to keep propelling me forward.  Which results in many projects in various stages of incompleteness.  While I will keep this as a practice, I will however, allow more people insight to my journey and me into theirs, so that we can learn from each other.  I must put legs to my dreams and visions, realizing that i cannot do this alone.

Be selective.  Be objective.  Be an asset to the collective.  Get a Life.

This sums up the purpose of my mental health day and my need for refueling.  I must be selective of who and what I allow into my life.  Be objective to the process and not fight it.  Get a life.  I’ve got to stop taking myself and situations that don’t affect my life one way or the other to stagnate growth and process.  It’s all about forward movement…any movement is movement.

What’s the meaning of life?

Only you can answer that question for yourself.  It’s your life to live and you are the only one that must answer to and speak for the life that you life.  Get out there and GET A LIFE!  YOUR life.

*ramblings and randomness ruled my life today and I’m unapologetic about it*
