Carve Out Your Own Reality

Unsteady footing not sure where she wanted to go in this life
Doors slammed shut and no windows open
Honestly not a sense of relief in sight
Longing for a feeling, or  some dose of inspiration
Life it was blah and surely she was lacking motivation
Afraid to weave a new tale she was so stuck on the last
Reality bites when you live in the past


None of us are certain of the exact path that we take in this life. Tomorrow is never promised and that is proven every day. We may have another minute another hour who knows? Are you going to spend your precious moments living in the past or being present?  Are you living the life you want? Like right now at this very minute?

If the answer is no, then what are you waiting for?

We all have our demons and issues to deal with. You can look at some people and see that they wear their burdens on their faces. It’s like a cycle of constant negativity repeating all the things that are wrong with your life. Then some people wonder why things never seem to go right.
Keep calling in the negativity and rehashing the issues and you never ever really breathe any fresh air. The staleness of the past trials will always continue to stand in your way.

There comes a point where you have to examine yourself and really wade through some of the bullshit that you keep repeating. It never really leaves you if you never try to learn the lessons.  I choose to let go is my current mantra. Never let being caught up in your web of so-called problems leave you bitter. If you really take a moment ,  a real moment to go deep and embrace everything that you hold inside, you will let go or make peace with all of the shit that consumes you and eats you alive.

You have to make space for something new to come in. Circumstances are not the determinant of whether you love the life that you are living. You have to carve out your own reality; not just sit on your ass and take it as it comes. In most cases, all you need to do is allow accept and move on but us imperfect beings tend to hold on to things too long. We want what we can’t have or we refuse to adapt. As the song says the grass isn’t greener on the other side it’s greener under  you. 


I know what it’s like to be stuck in a story you never intended to write. You just have to remember that it is a chapter, just one chapter and not let anything overtake your life.
You create your own reality. How do you perceive it? You are either your own best friend or your worst enemy.

    Personally I believe this also. We make out what we want of life, perhaps a greater percentage of the time. Sometimes circumstances could hinder no kidding, and opportunities would not be forth coming. But I believe if we want something badly enough, we create for ourselves the possibility of it happening by our resilience and perseverance.

    • You are speaking the gospel. I get discouraged but I remember that making excuses does not get you anywhere in life and it only serves to make you miserable. Thanks for your wise words and a very encouraging reminder for me

    • Thanks so much for taking the time to read . You make a valid point . Sometimes it is not quite that easy but I think we should always make space to let more happiness into our lives

  2. “You have to carve out your own reality,” it’s not always easy but it is so true!! Thank you for this reminder max I have also chosen to let go. I’m letting go of anything that doesn’t serve me.

  3. Well written, anyone who is under some stress and constant negativiy thoughts should read this many times, until they realized and woke up to start to carve out their own reality.

    • I have been over trying to control it all and as you once very wisely said to me . We should remain in the flow . Life has a way of working itself out 🙂 Always

  4. We are what we think about us. If we are constantly thinking about problems, we are always gonna find ourselves in one. The let go mantra has really worked well for me. Just believe everything happens for good and keep moving.

  5. One of the most important things we can learn in life is that we indeed do create our own reality. Yes, there will always be things that happen outside of our control, both good and bad, but the secret is in whether we see them as obstacles or stepping stones. That choice is always ours.

    • That is the only choice that we have to change our point of view to make the less than fabulous great and to focus on the good points in life .
