CROWN MYSELF& #100daysofencouragement!


“Whatever you are physically… male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy—all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside. “(Cassandra, Clare: Clockwork Agel)

*These next few posts are inspired by those of you who are struggling in this thing we call life, those of you who have clinical depression, bi-polar or any other mental illness. This is also for those of you who have experienced some form of trauma, those of you who feel lonely, and those of you who feel misunderstood. Whatever your vice is, I’m here to remind you, YOU ARE PRECIOUS, BELOVED AND ORDAINED FOR A GREATER AND BETTER PURPOSE! PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP! JOY AND PEACE DO COMETH IN THE MORNING!

HAPPY NEW YEAR BELOVED! We are three weeks into the New Year and I can’t help but infuse myself in the deceptive mask of the New Year. It’s similar to the smell of a new car or the smell of a new born. It’s beautiful because it symbolizes a new beginning, a new chapter, a new leap into the future. To a certain extent, this reigns true about the New Year. Although you made it to 2016, the problems of 2015 will still follow you into this year; in addition 2016 will bring with it, it’s own challenges and tribulations. So then what do we do about this? How do we keep our heads above water? How do we encourage ourselves? How do we stay positive while people and the environment around us, just keeps eroding our crowns?

Well the answer is pretty straightforward. The key is to jewel your crowns. I’m sure you are all sitting there wondering what I’m on about. Well, whether you believe in creationism, evolution, the big bang theory, we are born with an enormous and picturesque crown, filled with unique jewels. That crown is your essence, therefore your eternal truth!

During your formative years, your parents or guardians are meant to mentor you into believing in yourself, as well as teach you how to combat the various demons and challenges you will be faced with during your lifetime. This level of self-awareness, self-definition, self-validation and confidence should be formed and developed within your formative years, so that by the time you enter adulthood, you are not a feather being directed by the wind. However, even with the right amount of mentor ship and the correct support system, life can still throw you under a bus and shatter everything you know and believe, about yourself and the world.

In addition, not every single human being is fortunate enough to receive the right amount of mentor ship or any mentor ship from their parents or guardians. This forces these individuals to develop their shock absorbers, self-confidence and self-awareness elsewhere. Trust me, this is never easy, neither is it attractive. So given that we are all experience some level of hardship and fighting our own demons, why don’t we raise each other up? Why don’t show compassion rather than judgment and cynicism?

In the next couple of weeks, I will attempt discuss the various ways our crowns are eroded and potential ways to reverse this cycle. Some of the blog posts might seem rather radical and others might seem pretty obvious. In any case, my main aim is to encourage those of you struggling and also to a certain extent educate many of you about depression and other mental illnesses.

In addition, I have also started a #100daysofencouragement #withmisb on Facebook and Instagram as form of daily encouragement. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO FOLLOW ME AND LETS START A REVOLUTION!!

Lastly, I want to emphasize that I am not a mental health expert, neither I’m I licensed life coach, however in the last few years I have fought a good fight with depression, PTSD and various kinds of trauma. Thus I have acquired enough experience and knowledge to be able to impact you in some way. That said, I want to really use this opportunity to tell those of you struggling with mental health, trauma or any other illness, no one has the right to tell you how long your recovery should take. No one has the right to demean you emotions or experiences; AND NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO DEFINE YOU. LIKE I SAID IN THE BEGINNING YOU WERE BORN WITH A PRECIOUS JEWELED CROWN, NEVER LET ANYONE REDEFINE IT OR ERODE IT.

Gonna leave you with one of my favorite songs. ENJOY :0)
