Struggles by Brennan Marie 

For those of you that don't understand pain and suffering or struggle, I strongly suggest you stop reading now. Have you ever woken up just to close your eyes again? Stayed in your room for days or weeks at a time with only the energy to walk to the bathroom? It's a crippling feeling of helplessness that can only be understood by someone that's been through it. I had to forget about myself completely because if it were entirely up to me and I had no one, I wouldn't be alive right now. But I looked at my husband and thought about our future children. On a daily basis I remind myself. Suicide doesn't take the pain away, it only passes it on to those you leave behind. -Brennan Marie

The Present is The Gift 

Today, the present moment, is the gift.  It’s one of many gifts we receive when we seek guidance.  There’s the inner gift of recognizing who I am and what I’m meant to be doing.  It gets overwhelming and sometimes I can’t handle accepting the gifts.  I can get ungrateful for the gift and that’s when I start going astray.  I have to been thankful everyday for every breath, for every interaction with interesting people who have been put in my life for a divine reason.  Guidance.  I don’t always know what’s best for me.  Then I’ll hear someone say the exact thing I need to hear and then I can take action.  Putting good character building into practice is no easy task but it’s liberating.  I suffer from panic disorder, alcoholism, bipolar disorder, manic and major depressive disorder; but it’s all manageable with the help of a team of the right professionals.  I have to have mentors of all types to help manage my life.  I can’t do it alone.  Finances, career decisions, relationships, family issues; I always need to be talking to someone who has valid experience in each area to help fix my flaws.  I focus on my strengths and work harder to draw them out and my weaknesses, well I leave them with people better equipped to handle them.  It’s really little things they tell me to do and it becomes a quick fix.  I don’t have to let little things or issues build up to the point where now it’s a giant monster in front of me.  Acting with a rapid determination to be better and a clear belief in an ultimate, forgiving and loving Creator, always produces the best results.  I can’t control the weather therefore I am not a Higher Power.  But I do have the power to accept change and to have the willingness to do the next right thing.  Hope this helps somebody

Coincidences  

Coincidences don’t really exist.  In my life, when something occurs right on time, it’s really the universe telling me that I’m ready to level up in a small or big way.  I’ve been writing and singing since 8 years old and I’ve been willing to go to any length to achieve my goal of being a great and recognized artist.  Recently, opportunities and realizations have been coming at lightning speeds.  I’ve had to swallow truths about myself and practice humility which is a sign of preparation.  I’ve had to accept compliments and criticisms as a way towards growth and achievement.  The gift is to be present on a daily basis.  Maintaining a routine required for success is no easy task but it’s easier than fighting against what I am born to be.  Stuffing or ignoring my true calling is to deny the Higher Power the right to shape me into what it needs me to be.  Staying strong and staying on the right path is not always the popular decision to make and temptations want me to give in to the norm or old behaviors.  Well I’m in the business of progress and change.  Huge developments have unfolded as a direct result of following the signs and trusting in the process.

Importance 

I’m not that important.  It’s not that I’m not important, everybody is important to the stream of life, but when I become more important than everybody else and stop caring about how other people feel; I’m headed for trouble.  Sure there are things that I’m great at and there are days when I feel like I’m invincible but even then, I’m just another human being doing my very best to just be.  Sometimes I’m not ok with just being.  It’s hard to forget about my little plans and designs when a lot of the time that’s all I’m focused on.  Just being me has to be ok though, it’s good enough.  It’s like I want to be a 10, I feel sometimes like a 2 and really we are all just 5’s.  Another grain of sand on the beach.

Trust 

Is this really happening?  Sometimes I have to emphatically and strongly soul search then take a long hard look at where my feet are.  I didn’t get here overnight and I have to remember those stark times when my feet were dragging or stomping or trudging.  It’s been an incredible journey thus far.  I’ve battled the doubts, the disbelief, the disillusionment.  I had to make a lot of outlandish mistakes.  Some decisions of mine were a complete 180 from what very wise people in my network were suggesting.  I paid dearly for those mistakes but it was necessary and important that I learned from them.  The moments are going to come again.  I will be wrong again.  However, the path has already been placed.  I just have to continue following it and yes, it really is happening.  Speaking of the path already laid down, my belief in a Higher Intelligence is strong and I have to rigorously depend and rely on it.  He made me the way I am, faults and all.  God has the power.  I lack power and have to continuously ask for His will to be shown, otherwise I’m kinda lost.  I’ll go back to disillusionment.  I’ll go back to relying on myself who makes bad decisions without the guidance of my Higher Power who speaks through the wise ones.  If I don’t listen to that, my free will, will either kill me or save me.  I choose to be saved-one day at a time.
