Bare Soles…..bare SOULS

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.  – Ayn Rand

 

images (17)“The world you desire CAN be won” but YOU have to want it, live it, breathe it and not allow the world around you to tell you otherwise.  Ever feel a sense of relief when climbing out of your designer heels and planting your feet square on the ground? Baring your soul, your inner-you renders the same euphoric feeling or sense of bliss.  The key is getting to the inner you to comfortably and with confidence bare your soul.

To often we spend our days living for someone else; living behind ourselves for fear of what the reveal will expose.  In doing so we are not truly living so much as we are existing.  We must come from behind the shadows of ourselves to fully experience a life that is exactly what we design and strictly by our rules.  We must discontinue the business of allowing others to determine our destiny by settling and making excuses for them and ourselves.

Think about it, that relationship you think you have, with the man who is merely giving you crumbs because that is what you accept.  Are you really in a relationship that is satisfying your needs?  Are you in a relationship at all or is this just a figment of a relationship because it is “all that you know” or all you feel you deserve?  Are you in a relationship with someone yet you feel all alone or are operating as if you are a party of one?  Well guess what, you probably are!!

I’m here to tell you that you deserve more and should demand more, not from him per se but from YOURSELF!  When we understand our true market value and overall worth then we can live a life that is ours and ours alone because we are less apt to settle for crumbs thrown by another who is often not even worthy.

When we know our value, understand our worth, and uphold ourselves to those standards we can then live and give freely and not in hopes of getting something in return.  When we guard our time as the precious commodity it is and protect it from those not vested nor able to respect it we are then taking responsibility for our lives by dictating the terms, by reflecting outward our expectations.  Ultimately we are empowering ourselves by taking ownership for our lives versus allowing another to make the choice for us.  Baring one’s soul starts with baby steps until you understand perhaps where/who you are, where/who you’ve been, and where/who you want to be.

You see, bare soles represents being grounded in a soul that is bare because you have tapped into your inner being to live the fullest life possible with only those in it who are deserving and most worthy of being there!

Next time you bare your soles, take time to bare your soul!
