make the best of life bajezen


A reason, A season, A lesson, A blessing. Everything in life falls into these four categories, sometimes we have a cocktail of them all because what would life be if we did not have a shake-up once in a while?
DO you believe in everything for a reason? Sometimes I have the unshakeable faith that everything will work out on other days I want to stay in bed and binge-watch my life away. How can we justify everything for a reason when the reasons seemingly make no sense. We are not here to judge life or fix it we are here to live it.  Sometimes all we can do just live; especially when we consider that most of it is out of our control.  We make mistakes.fall down, get up or just lie there. The reactions and your attitude really are all up to you.  The time is going to pass anyway so make the best of it. The most imperfect and dysfunctional moments often make the best stories. 

sunshine makes a desert bajezen

What season are you currently in? An endless winter, a hot summer burn? Or is it hurricane season with no sunshine in sight? Whatever experiences you are having at this moment  know that they are essential for your growth.  Without challenges, without loss, we would never learn how to appreciate anything at all. Everyone and everything that you encounter has something to teach you. You may not get the lesson right away but the pieces of the puzzle always fall into place somehow. One day you will just have one of those aha moments and you will go…so  that is why it happened that way. I had to go through this to get to this point. When you look back on all the things that made you sad, angry or crazy you will be stronger for it .

take the lesson bajezen

Remember if you aren’t learning you aren’t growing. Three years ago, after a fairly tumultuous relationship; I have to admit I was a sad and bitter mess. I looked in the mirror and literally wondered who was this staring back me. There had to be more to life than this pain because when you really and truly immerse yourself in another human being , the separation is so gut-wrenching.  We have all been through it. It literally feels like it bruises your soul. Thoughts of what if and blame and guilt and all those emotions that typically I really do not want to deal with. Today I can look back on it and accept the lesson . It is no longer a bitter nasty pill for me to swallow but it taught me resilience and how to forgive. ( I also do not feel like setting his stuff on fire anymore).It took me such a long time not to take the actions of others personally. People will act how they act and they do what they do.At the end of the day, we are all trying to do our best. My part in it all is not to retaliate or react. I refuse to let anything threaten my peace. Karma is a mirror and I want nothing but good things coming back at me. Not everything you lose is a loss, you take the experiences as opportunities for growth. Look at yourself today, right this every minute at how far you have come, how much you have been through and you are still standing and dare I say you are pretty awesome too!  Don’t get bitter, get better . Turn all of that fiery energy into something good. Make it work for you.

stronger than you could ever imagine bajezen


How do you view life? Is it a blessing or the bitch that stole your joy? Let’s put things in perspective with a simple checklist. Put your hand to your heart and feel it beating, are your breathing? Are you clothed?Are you loved? Then really you have all you need at this moment.Life is all about being in the now. Now is after all the only moment we have.  Make today a day of appreciation.  It can’t always be sunshine and rainbows but you can always find the strength and the wisdom to value all of the good that you have in your life. In a world full of dark clouds be a ray of sunshine. Some days you have to dig deep but always remain steadfast and find the light.  

If it does not fit don’t force it
Let it flow, set it free
In this life, you can never lose or fail
Just look within you will find everything you need
It is never to late to be reborn, reinvent, write a new story
Don’t fuel the fire of worry,
Your happiness was never meant to buried, snuffed out by these burdens
Life is a learning curve, a  work in progress don’t ignore the lessons
Regroup, reflect, shake it off
When you feel like giving up
Put on those big girl panties and as they say, try, try again.

    This was a good, and inspirational, post. So often, it is easy to let our seasons overrun our life, but I find comfort in knowing that it doesn’t last always. I can make myself miserable by focusing on everything that is wrong, or I can find comfort in knowing that it is making me stronger.

    Beautifully written, Tachi. Bless you for the willingness to undergo these experiences and embrace them, allowing them to transform your very being. I do believe that the secret is YOU…you are the blessing – it is the hidden gem that is right in front of our faces. Each one of us has the task of uncovering and claiming this Truth for ourselves.

    So much of what you said resonates with me. I like to think I’m a pretty positive person who sees failures as opportunities to learn and grow. Love the part where you binge watch. I to go through those phases and I find it helps my mind to shut down for a bit. Great message. Thanks for sharing.

    I learned this when I summited Mt. Kilimanjaro last summer: You can always take just one more step, no matter how small or how slow. Pole pole (slowly, slowly in Swahili)
