If at First you don’t Succeed…

If at First you don’t Succeed…

To be divine is to be whole. To be whole is to be complete, the evil and the good.

Maybe I am an undiagnosed mental patient?


I really had to just take a moment and laugh at the thought of me even asking that question.

But no, seriously, sometimes I feel like I am just one thought, one action, just one little tick away from being a mental patient and I know I can’t be the only one. I’m sure many others out there like myself feel the exact same way.


I think I would look pretty decent in an all white with multiple buckles ensemble. .. no?

So, how do I maintain? How do I seem to get up day in and day out and continue to put a smile on my face?

I just wonder. We all know this life has meaning and in this life everybody has something that they have to endure. The struggle is on so many levels and having money is not going to make a difference in our true happiness nor having a certain type of car nor having a certain type of house. Happiness is a state of being. We all serve a purpose. No matter how insignificant we may think it is. I know people with many material possessions and they still wake up every day unhappy, just miserable. Life really is what you make it. We can choose to either make it great or we can choose to make it not so great. We can choose to laugh or we can choose to cry. This is our life…our moment…and it’s really and truly all about choice .



Granted there are many choices that I just wish I had not chosen because I feel like the outcome of those choices are not of  favorable desire. But at the end of the day it was, and is still my choice and I have to be held accountable and must take credibility for my actions no one else no one made me commit.



Not to mention with mistakes comes experience and we can only grow from experience. I honestly do not believe that I would be the passion filled person I am today if it weren’t for all of my numerous trials and errors.


Yes..Numerous. As in Plural.

But guess what? With all the mistakes that have been made its never too late to become and do better. Each day is a new day and with each new day it’s an opportunity to approach life a different way. It’s not an overnight process.


Just as long as it took you to get to your current circumstance it may take just as long to come out of it…maybe longer, maybe not. I believe it depends upon your willingness to strive and rise above to do better.1233955_633118003373295_1647177116_n

Take a moment to evaluate where you’re currently at in life on all levels…mental, physical, financial and spiritual (if you’re into all that). Are you happy? Do you feel that external possessions will make you happier? Often times we have an expectation of obtaining a certain object or becoming involved with a certain individual or obtaining a certain status and we believe that all will be well. As they say, “Expect the best, but prepare for the worst.”




Reality is forever present, and its a hard pill to swallow sometimes…however we can break it down and digest it into smaller pieces.big-pill-300x200



pillOnce Again…(Because sometimes things are best learned with repetition)…Just because you may have not started your regimen to do better today does not mean that you can’t try again tomorrow. A New Day can bring about a New Way.

Try again



And always Remember…



About essentiallydivine

Artist, Writer, Designer, Wild Child, Free Spirit and Mother of Civilization. That pretty much sums me up. I’m almost 30 years old and I’m just now learning how to live my life versus doing what is needed to just survive. Too many of us float through life without a passion or a dream. Too many of us are still asleep and blind to the fact that NOW we can wake and live. Life really is what you make it. I am one to make it as pleasurable as possible and anyone who I come in connection with I hope I can shed a little light on their dharma. I strongly believe that we are all divine beings and that everyone should be awakened to experience life to their fullest potential.
