"If you are a junkyard dog, you assume that that's what life is: chained up, barking all day."
"There are two sides to every chain" is all I heard as I turned on my radio. I wished I heard more, but I guess that's all I needed. I started to think more about it, and agreed with it. It's true. There are two sides to every chain. There is you, and at the other end is the thing you are chained to.
Chains are nothing more than tools that can be used for a multitude of situations and circumstances. They can be used to bind, limit, control and restrain us.
When I heard the short snippet on the radio I thought about the mental and emotional chains that binds us, also about the power that these chains have over us. I believe that many of us are living with these chains. Past traumatic events, intense emotions, thoughts, food, materials and much more can bind us. I believe that at some point in your life you have or will be bounded to something.
The question is, "Do you know what you are chained to?"
While thinking about my chains, my past came up and it was clear that I've had some traumatic and emotional events in my life. Those events left me bound tightly, chained, and secured in deep, dark places. Sure the past can be a hard place to look at, but what we can do is just think about it, and move on. The thing about being chained to something is that wherever you go, it goes. It follows you everywhere….You wake up, it's there; using the restroom, it's there; go to work, oh yes it's there too. Your chains will follow you. Some of us have more than one chain, and our chains are so loud that others can hear us coming. Our chains are strong and may even multiply, these chains will have you thinking that they will never go away.
DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE!!! They can be broken, you can be free, it happened for me. I had many strong, thick, dark, emotional, mental, and even physical chains in my life that I thought I would never be able to shake. These chains have been blasted, broken, and destroyed from my life, and I'm here to tell you that the same can be done for you! Be encouraged and know that you are a caterpillar awaiting your transformation into your final form! You are beautiful, you have purpose in life, and you are loved! Don't change yourself to fit in, embrace your uniqueness, weirdness, whatever makes you you, be you without apology! You can and will rise above the chains that hinder you from being the butterfly you are created to be! How long will you allow your chains to drag behind you, don't you want to be free?
If you have chains in your life that are holding you back, or keeping you from reaching your full potential and enjoying your life the way you were meant to, than its time….LET THEM GO! Time to soar above the clouds and accept the past for what it is—history! Accept what has happened, learn from it, and grow! It's a waste of energy to let the past distract you from your present and steal from your future! Be free and transform to your Final Form!
I pray that you endure, never give up, and learn to drop those chains and go fly you beautiful butterfly!
