When your actions are controlled by what someone else “might” think, you won’t get far. You are as limited as that person’s thoughts. Evolving is growth, which inevitably creates a little discomfort. Feel your way through it and create positive thoughts of your own to follow-it’s the only direction you need.
There will be times when everything around you is sending signals that make it harder and harder to hold on to your dreams. You give power to circumstance, and find yourself farther and farther away from your vision. Before you know it, your goals have slipped down to the tips of your fingers. The beauty in this struggle is that, they are still very much in reach. Be steadfast-immovable-always abide by the vision you have for your life.
Nothing is worth not being yourself. It is super important to be mindful of the sacrifices you make. This is critical to getting to your purpose. Too many sacrifices leaves room for resentment.
It’s easy to smile when everything is good. It’s when you become able to smile in the midst in the storm that your spirit is awakened. This is not to say that hard times don’t hurt or make us feel “a way”. It’s only to encourage you to keep your mind on the rainbow that will follow. If you succumb to your circumstance, you won’t get to experience the joy in overcoming.
The depth of addiction is an indicator of how far away from your truth you’re trying to get. Face it….Not acknowledging it won’t make it go away.
The majority of us have the innate ability to reflect, and sometimes our pasts haunt us. This is especially true when we don’t readily accept its lessons. God takes us through different storms-disquising them as “good times” and purposefully doesn’t reveal that they are “tests” in hopes that we become better people. When we fight our way through the storm, the next step is reflection-regret has no rightful place in your journey. Learn courtesy of your mistakes and hold yourself accountable. Remember, even your past has a purpose.
Explanations aren’t a requirement when doing what’s best for you. There will be uncomfortable moments in your journey, but when we live the life that was intended for us, we end up just where we are supposed to be. Compromise is a great tool, but be careful not to let it interfere with your quest to get where you were meant to go.
