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.
“Even if no one believes in you, as long as you believe in you, you will always be one up.”
The dream, the goal, the vision is set in your heart and mind. It something that you want, that you desire to achieve. You and you alone know the depth of the sincerity in your heart about reaching your goal. Sometimes your efforts cannot be physically seen and it may cause others to see you as lackadaisical, lethargic or not really wanting it as much as you say…to them I say “fuck you,” you don’t know my heart.
When you believe in something so much that at times your soul hurts because you can envision it as clear as day, you know it’s bound to come life. You will hear from the naysayers, the doubt spreaders, those that think you’re in over your head. Don’t let them get you down or pull your dreams out from under you.
If you know your heart, you know what you want and if you believe, then you know that you will get there.
“When the environment you are wearing starts feeling tight. It means you are still growing.”
Feed and nurture your heart, mind and spirit. I believe there is always room for us to grow. Do not psyche yourself out into believing you have accomplished all that you can accomplish or that your life cannot continue to grow and expand.
Self stagnation happens for many reasons. By choice, by circumstance, voluntarily, involuntarily. Dreams have no age restriction or expiration. Sometimes you wake up to your environment (inner and outer) feeling kind of tight, this is a sign that your ideas and dreams are bursting at the seams, waiting to be sought out and realized. Ignore that stagnating voice and be all ears for the voice that inspires you.
Once you get something in your mind, it can become just another thought or it becomes an idea that leads to a dream and the goals within that dream.
Then begins the pursuit. You make plans on how to put your ideas into action and reach your goals to accomplish your overall dreams. Whichever direction you decide to take will be met with opposition, that is the forces that put themselves in the way of making your dreams come true.
This is where resilience and commitment come into play. You know how you can get something in your mind and you can’t let go? Well, think about when you get something in your heart. Your level of desire to see it through and reach that point of realization increases to the utmost degree. Resilience and commitment are a powerful one, two combo to employ.
The resilience to recover from setbacks and letdowns and the commitment to hang in there in pursuit of what you want and hope for. Like a boxer who trains consistently in learning this combo, we too much be consistent in exercising this combination. When you are truthfully committed to something you become more resilient along your journey. They go hand in hand.
When you are committed in heart, mind and spirit, no matter what arises, you will be given insight and guidance to one day experience that moment of what was once an idea is now a dream come true. Do not give up on you.
