I Traveled Through Madness To Find Me.
The journey to finding oneself lasts a lifetime. And within a lifetime there are more than one’s share of moments of madness.
Madness manifests itself in so many different ways as to make a clear definition less possible… but as each person looks back at their respective timeline, those moments become all the more clear as one gets older.
They come in the form of parental conflict, peer conflict, health issues, school issues, work issues, financial issues, relationship issues, emotional issues and so much more.
It is possible to perceive all of them as the pressure and friction that converts coal into a diamond. Each one sculpting your internal being. Each one forcing you to grow in moments you are not appreciative of growing within.
But if one stays true to oneself, the overall outcome is to discover that one is stronger than one might have imagined. More resilient. More elastic. More capable.
Almost every cell in your body gets replaced numerous times over the course of a lifetime, yet you are still you. Hopefully better, stronger and more capable than you were in an earlier incarnation.
When one is traveling through the madness, it is exhausting, demoralizing and depletes extensive energy that could be used in better circumstances. But the reality is that if you are conscious of the experience, you have the ability to rise above the madness And emerge victorious. It takes a strong mental frame of mind and an even stronger will and determination, but the outcome can be spectacular if you allow yourself to convert from coal to diamond.
In the end, it is the journey that is the great experience. Even if it feels like madness along the way. I hope your Friday is spectacular🥂
