Song of the day #105

Bird Set Free

Sia Furler

Clipped wings, I was a broken thing
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not sing
You would wind me down
I struggled on the ground, oh
So lost, the line had been crossed
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not talk
You held me down
I struggle to fly now, ohBut there’s a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive, oh
Yes, there’s a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, but I don’t wanna die, no
I don’t wanna die, I don’t wanna die, yeahAnd I don’t care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
No, I don’t care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I’ll shout it out like a bird set freeI’ll shout it out like a bird set free
I’ll shout it out like a bird set freeNow I fly, hit the high notes
I have a voice, have a voice, hear me roar tonight
You held me down
But I fought back loud, ohThere’s a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive, oh
Yes, there’s a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, but I don’t wanna die, no
I don’t wanna die, I don’t wanna die, yeahAnd I don’t care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
No, I don’t care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I’ll shout it out like a bird set free
I’ll shout it out like a bird set free
I’ll shout it out like a bird set free
I’ll shout it out like a bird set free
I’ll shout it out like a bird set free
I’ll shout it out like a bird set free

Quote of the day #7

“They say faith is taking the first step when you can’t see the whole staircase. Actually, wisdom is seeing the elevator behind it that would have taken you to the top floor.”

Letter to the subconscious

Why are you afraid, dear subconscious? Why are you so scared to be yourself, to believe in yourself, to thrive? Do you not know that you hold the supreme power and that without you I am nothing? Why do you always tend towards negativism and do not see the positive side?

I tried these days to do an exercise and it surprised me, but not for good. I could never believe that inside you can be so dark, so scared of change and so focused on being and becoming nothing.

Why do you want everything to happen as the wind welcomes and to let yourself worn like a dry leaf from the cold wind? Do you not know that you hold the power and that together we can be unbeatable?

But you, subconscious are different from me at present. You are a shy and hidden character who does not trust and shudder at the first threat from outside, if you could you would take me into nothingness and you would never return.

Do you not know that always, together we have achieved things that only seemed real in a dream? Do you remember when we used to float over reality and embrace the present as a gift from God?

To be honest, I don’t even know when you’ve changed me so much, dear subconscious. You have become a side of mine so dark and closed that sometimes it is difficult for me to identify you, it is difficult for me to listen to you in solitude.

It is said that we attract what we think and that you, subconscious, have infinite power in attracting things to become reality. Why do you want to bring me only sadness and negative things? Why do you want to torment us in the near future?

Yes, I made mistakes and yes God knows how much I have struggled so far to get here. Some struggles have been given by God, some we have created by taking our lives in our hands.

Sometimes the true struggles must be waged by God, not by us. And we, dear subconscious, have much to learn from this parable.

Let’s stop fighting windmills and ask for guidance from Him. Come to realize that we are not alone in this cold world and that we have unlimited help, all we have to do is believe.

The things that are given to us by God to happen, will happen to us, the possible ones will materialize in time depending on what we attract to happen. Let’s not dream about impossible things because in time, we can hurt the soul of other people in our selfishness and absurd desire, for the moment.

Today I propose to make a pact, dear subconscious. Let’s choose the right path for us, eliminate negativism and gloomy thoughts, look to the future with hope and confidence.

Let us propose realistic or even unrealistic ideals but with the aim of never taking for granted or thinking selfishly about the people given by God at that time. To have a pure soul, and to think with the heart when we make decisions that could affect our life for a long term.

Because only together we can make a difference and change our life and future in just one second. Let’s be a team again and work together like we never did!

Scrisoare catre subconstient

De ce iti este frica, draga subconstient? De ce te temi atat de rau sa fii tu insuti, sa crezi in tine, sa prosperi? Oare nu stii ca tu detii puterea suprema si ca fara tine sunt nimic? De ce tinzi mereu catre negativism si nu vezi si partea pozitiva?

Am incercat zilele acestea sa fac un exercitiu si m-ai surprins, dar nu in bine. Nu puteam credea niciodata ca inauntru poti fi atat de fricos, atat de speriat de schimbare si atat de centrat pe a fi si a deveni un nimic.

De ce vrei ca totul sa se intample dupa cum binevoieste vantul si sa te lasi purtat ca o frunza uscata de vantul rece? Oare nu stii ca tu detii puterea si ca impreuna putem fi de neinvins?

Dar tu, subconstient esti diferit de mine in prezent. Esti o fire timida si ascunsa, care nu are incredere si se clatina la prima amenintare din afara, daca ai putea mi te-ai duce in neant si nu te-ai mai intoarce.

Oare nu stii ca mereu, impreuna am realizat lucruri care numai in vis ni se pareau reale? Mai tii minte cand obisnuiam sa plutim peste realitate si sa imbratisam prezentul ca pe un dar oferit de Dumnezeu?

Sa fiu sincera, nici nu stiu cand mi te-ai schimbat atat de mult, draga subconstient. Ai devenit o latura de-a mea atat de intunecata si inchisa incat uneori imi este greu sa te identific, imi este greu sa te ascult in singuratate.

Se spune ca atragem ceea ce gandim si ca tu, subconstient, ai o putere infinita in a atrage lucrurile spre a deveni realitate. De ce doresti sa imi aduci numai tristete si lucruri negative? De ce vrei sa ne chinuim intr-un viitor sumbru?

Da, am facut greseli si da Dumnezeu stie cat de mult am luptat pana in prezent pentru a ajunge aici. Unele lupte au fost date de Dumnezeu, unele ni le-am creat noi luandu-ne viata in maini.

Uneori adevaratele lupte trebuie duse de Dumnezeu, nu de noi. Si noi, draga subconstient avem de invatat mult din aceasta pilda.

Haide sa nu mai luptam cu morile de vant si sa cerem ghidare de la EL. Haide sa realizam ca nu suntem singuri in aceasta lume rece si ca avem un ajutor nemarginit, tot ceea ce trebuie sa facem este sa credem.

Lucrurile care ne sunt date de SUS sa se intample, ni se vor intampla, cele posibile se vor materializa in timp in functie de ceea ce atragem noi sa se intample. Haide sa nu mai visam la lucruri imposibile deoarece in timp, putem rani sufletul altor persoane din egoismul si dorinta noastra absurda, de moment.

Astazi iti propun sa facem un pact, draga subconstient. Haide sa alegem calea potrivita pentru noi, sa eliminam negativismul si gandurile sumbre, sa privim inspre viitor cu speranta si incredere.

Sa ne propunem idealuri realiste sau chiar nerealiste dar cu scopul de a nu lua niciodata de bun sau sa gandim egoist asupra persoanelor daruite de Dumnezeu in acel moment. Sa avem sufletul pur, si sa gandim cu inima atunci cand luam decizii ce ne-ar putea afecta viata pe termen lung.

Pentru ca doar impreuna putem face o diferenta si ne putem schimba viata si viitorul intr-o secunda. Haide sa fim din nou o echipa si sa lucram impreuna!
