My mind — boy are you a funny creature. You know, you take me on the wildest adventures, the craziest rollercoasters, the smoothest waters, the most serene forests, the prettiest sunsets, the rockiest mountains but most of all, you take me on the journey of life. I know, somedays you drive me absolutely crazy and I wish you’d just stay silent. But, I realize through those days you teach me to grow. I hear all your voices, I sense all your tricks, I see you like no one else, I’ve traveled to each corner and every crack in you and I’ve realized my true power with your help.

You are my biggest tool and curse all in one. But I choose to see you in the light, because I realize you are treated poorly by some. I know you’re here to help me on this journey, I know you are me. Some of your voices, eh, not my best friends, but I do appreciate their place in my journey to grow. The key with you is realizing your power. In my past, I’ve misused your power but through lots of lessons, I think I am finally using your power the way my heart knows to harness. You see, you bring things into reality so quickly. Thinking of my fears or anxiety, only brings more of them and it really took me years to figure that out! 🤪 I needed those years to realize your loving power, the way you bring miracles so quickly into my life now lights my soul on fire and lets that fire continue to burn. Somewhere inside of me, I always knew you could do that, but seeing it now just makes me so alive.

What I’m trying to say to you, my mind, is a heartfelt and honest thank you. You’re my mind, I’m sure you know all this but, for some reason I felt like I needed to say it. As you know, I’ve been thinking (probably too much) about the future of my life. You know it brings me some anxiety, but I really love how you’ve made my future a truly blank canvas. I thought I had my future figured out, and right now you’re telling me you know all of this, but you know writing clears the space in you. I believe in your power and I’ll continue to believe in all the magic my life is continuously full of. Just grant me one wish – I’ll stay true to myself no matter what I go through, who I meet or how I choose to live. I love me, I love you and that won’t change. My mind, thank you – you’ve blessed me in many ways and I can truly say with full honesty, I’m excited for our future. -Ace

    This is such a powerful and inspiring statement, Ace! I’m so proud of you for realizing this and being able to channel that negativity intro strength. You are wonderful! This is so empowering ❤❤

  2. I loved this earnest playful honest conversation. Indeed it takes a certain loving coaxing to train to be with this brilliant mind that so easily wants to take over like a toddler running amok out on the street :))) We need to help it know that being blank about the future is actually a good sign – that’s how our visions actually come true.

    Wow this is so beautifully written and I especially love the last couple of lines. Uncertainty about the future can be so scary as I know well, being about to start University away from home but your perspective has really encouraged me to explore the bright side of uncertainty and honestly has helped me feel better about the upcoming year. Ace this piece is so powerful, I love it!! Hope you are doing well ❤️❤️

      Awe thank you so much!! You’re so kind, thank you for your beautiful support! I appreciate you!! Amazing job you for hosting this competition!! What a great idea and I know many writers are so grateful to you!!! My life is a bit crazy right now and I’m working on so many things, I don’t think the timing is right at the moment. And I also competed at the highest level in sport and I went through a lot of pain. I’m not ready to put myself in competition with my writing, I want to keep it free. Thank you so much for thinking of me, you’re so kind!!!! You’re awesome, keep changing the world friend!!! 🖤🤗

  8. What a fun, wise, and loving message to your mind (and from your mind haha). I think it is wonderful you are able to have this lightness and playfulness towards that aspect of yourself. That has been some of the hardest work for me, forgiving my mind for what it has put me through and what it continues to put me through. My mind tended to speak very judgementally of myself and others, and it brought me and others pain and distance. But just like you said those aspects of the mind are part of my journey, part of my growth. My mind was in that mode because it thought that was what was best for me, at that point it life. I hope one day to be able to have the level of playfulness, acceptance, and gratitude you’ve expressed here for my own mind. You have a very beautiful understanding and energy towards your mind! 🌸
