Poetry, music, creative writing and a desire to inspire…..Isaiah 41:10: So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
The way I see it, our natural human instinct is to fight or flee that which we perceive to be dangerous. Although this mechanism evolved to protect us, it serves as the single greatest limiting process to our growth. To put this process in perspective and not let it rule my life, I expect the unexpected; make the unfamiliar familiar; make the unknown known; make the uncomfortable comfortable; believe the unbelievable. – Charles F.Glassman
Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid only of standing still. – Chinese Proverb
There will be obstacles
There will be distractions
There will be deterrents
There will be voices
There will be doubts
There will be plenty of reasons for you to stop, to call it quits, to just give up.
Don’t stop, don’t quit, don’t give up.Easier said than done at times.
When the vision is clear, the results will appear. Keep your mindset positive as you work your plan, flourish, and always remember why you started. – Germany Kent
The critics will criticize
Those that envy you will try to damper your enthusiasm
And those that don’t understand will simply try to confuse you
Feelings come and go but the decision to believe is a matter of choice. It’s not based on what you see, it is based on agreement that what you desire, want, hope for, will come to pass. Everyday brings new thoughts to go with what you’ve already been thinking. Try to stay aligned with your goal, we might teeter at times but as long as we don’t fall completely over, we can make it.
For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.
Have patience with all things but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being. You are perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that.
