We Are Our Own Architects…

For our own lives.

We have control over our own life’s decisions. As an architect, you cannot blame others for your faults, for causing that structure to fall because YOU designed it. Do not embark on a project you aren’t ready for. Be equipped with the right amount of knowledge before you build.

It is very important that we move in this world with a logical sound mind. We are indeed architects of our own lives, and like a good architect we have to have vast knowledge on how to build structure into our lives. We must not start off without the basic essentials, the foundation, otherwise the building will topple over.

We are architects yes. We can either be wise ones or foolish ones.

We can be the architects of our own earthly heaven, or we can be architects of our own hell.

Do we want to thrive and live in abundance? Or live in scarcity and quickly reach our demise?

Every choice we make in life has a good and bad consequence. The same age old battle of “Good vs. Evil,” the spiritual battles we face daily is not new. This has been going on since the beginning of time. This is ancient stuff.

Though, there may be plenty of factors we can’t control in life, there are some things we can handle ourselves. It is up to us to do what we can to make the best decisions, and the only way we can do so is by always seeking wisdom. This is achieved through self-reflection, accountability, humility, being in a meditative state (prayer mode), and deep thinking. Vital information can be downloaded onto us when we are humble enough to admit that there’s plenty of things we do not know. And just because you don’t know everything does not mean you cannot learn abundantly.

For as long as we live in this earthly realm, it is impossible to learn every single thing in one lifetime. One lifetime is not enough to learn everything, so there’s no sense in being a prideful, arrogant know-it-all. Enjoy the time here and gather all the information you can. Sharpen your skills, hobbies, talents, and mind. Work smart and have fun.

Be that architect that knows how to build a sturdy structure that lasts centuries or longer. It has surely been done before. Create your own oasis despite the challenges. At least try, so you don’t have to live with regrets.

I’d rather try and fail knowing I at least tried, than to never try and live with the regret of “what if I would’ve…” I’m an overthinker as it is, I cannot live with regret like that. And just because you failed once or twice doesn’t mean you cannot accomplish things. Just try new approaches and keep on building. Find better ways to do so. And build. Keep on trying. The more you try, the higher the likelihood of you actually getting it done the way you always wanted it. A lifetime may be short, but it sure is enough time to shoot your shot, trial and error, until you finally get it right, and you get to enjoy that blessing you reaped from your consistent labor, and wisdom seeking.

Never give up! You never know how close you’re getting to hitting the jackpot!

Writer. Poet. Artist. Lyricist. Born in December 16, 1995. I'm Mexican-American of Native American and Spanish descent. Southwestern US born -> Grew up in the Chicagoland area including Northwest Indiana (mostly East Chicago) -> moved to a warmer place. I've been writing since like around the late 2000s. Depression and anxiety was swallowing me and I had difficulty trusting others, so I decided to confide in writing. It started off as Spanish songwriting, then it evolved into English poetry, prose, and short stories the more I improved my English grammar and vocabulary. I once had to take ESL classes, until it was determined that I didn't need to anymore around middle school. I became so dedicated to writing that I just did it everyday, and it served as my daily therapy as I was battling with negative thoughts. It put my mind in a state of meditation where it opened me up to many ideas and inspiration that I lived to create. I began to notice that I could write and speak things into existence with my words and actions. I had to find myself, and search for the power of the mind.
