“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I cannot transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.” ― Anaïs Nin

Break Free of the conventional and embrace those things that bring you alive. Tear down those walls you’ve built around yourself and look out into the distance. Your life is just waiting to be lived fully. Allow for curiosity and wonder to replace any feelings of doubt or fear. Where walls once stood you will now see hope, possibility, and a life filled with authenticity and joy. Live it up and knock down those walls.

Wall Demolition Tips: 

Learn to Climb (Use your Resourcefulness) 

The walls you’ve built might seem too high for you to traverse, but anything is possible when you believe in your own resourcefulness. Take a long hard look at the positive attributes that already exist within you.  You are bigger and more powerful than any wall you’ve managed to build around you. This wall is an illusion. It is an illusion that up until this point has succeeded to keep you small. Have faith in your own natural abilities by reconnecting with past successes and significant milestones you’ve experienced. Can you recall a time when you were upset, intimidated, or full of doubt? How did you persevere through this moment? Is this matter of any importance to you now? Bring this memory forward and use it elevate you over and past your presenting struggle. There are strengths within us that we sometimes forget but they continue to be a part of our internal arsenal. Take inventory of your past victories and use these memories as the powerful forces that will get you up and over any wall.

The walls we’ve created are fortified with our fears and doubts. The more we fear the more bricks we pile onto the walls that block our progress and growth. When we learn to replace our limiting beliefs with thoughts of curiosity, and wonder we slam against our walls with the powerful hammer that is our courage. It is only when we dare to see what’s possible that we are willing to exchange our fears for feelings of possibility and excitement. What are you more excited about than afraid of? Let your courage be that powerful force that helps to bring those walls crashing down. “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” -Anais Nin Expand your view and allow yourself to see what wonders lie ahead of you.
