When you think of the word provoked, we imagine someone losing their cool. Screaming matches and physical altercations, scores waiting to be settled and justification for actions. However,  being provoked can push you to finally step up and take on what you have been to insecure to do. How about being provoked to be something greater than you were yesterday?

It is exhausting, walking through life responding to what angers you with anger. It is aging you, wearing hard on your soul, it comforts itself in the crevasse of your wrinkles and makes your soul bitter. Instead answer anger with a push forward, let it catapult you towards solutions and give you the impulse to rise above fear. You are worthy to have a smile that expresses relief and joy and is spread across your face. Anger can be converted into the energy that you lacked to finally overcome what has been holding you back.

Be provoked, scream out that anger you have dwelling inside you – once you are done with your cleanse you are ready to face your obstacles freely.

We have all been there, heartbroken and scared. Scared that it is going to happen again because it happened before, timid because the last time we stuck our toe on the water it burned. But didn’t your experience teach you something?  Aren’t you wiser for the turmoil?  Don’t get upset that it happened,  be grateful that you can go into your next experience with a wealth of wisdom,  that you have been given the tools to become a better person. Some people never get that, they stay under their shell afraid to live because it might hurt, well guess what – they are already dead. You obviously aren’t dead, you have loved and lost – but you felt and that has value. The scar is there and you should wear it like a trophy, you made it to your next battle. You have been provoked to put up a fight to conquer the next challenge.

Let the thought of self worth propel you into the next phase of your life. The phase of self actualization is a journey through the unknown,  but like any provocation – the salacious intrigue rules your curiosity and leaves caution to abandon. Let it be sexy, let it be adult – let it invigorate you because any other way isn’t good enough. Who said it can’t be fun? Dare to wink at fate and lead your destiny with wild passion.

Get over the resentment,  the insecurity and the “what if” – you aren’t blind. The next experience you aren’t sure about, do your homework and survey the land well. No rose colored glasses, just look at the reality and decide if this is something worth taking on. Practice self love and self preservation, please remind yourself that life is beautiful and so are you. Big exhale and a big hug!

  1. “But didn’t your experience teach you something? Aren’t you wiser for the turmoil? Don’t get upset that it happened, be grateful that you can go into your next experience with a wealth of wisdom, that you have been given the tools to become a better person.” That is a very tough lesson to learn, and sometimes it can be an even more difficult tool to use….but it’s vital. Excellent points in a great post!

    1. Thanks so much for your comment! I appreciate you checking in, it is a hard lesson to learn. I really want people to get pissed off about being stuck and do something about it. I also want all of us to see that everything happens for a reason and it is part of building who you are. Mike, thanks again!

  2. Your words resonate with a situation I had recently and because I dislike confrontation I allow things to slide. But you are right we cannot allow negative provocation. If we are to be provoked let it be to improve ourselves and increase our self worth. I love your lengthy sentences. So much clarity in your words. Thanks.

    1. Thank you single dust! I try to keep it concise, but then I get excited! I appreciate your comment, please check back in!
