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.
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.
When they judge you, yawn. When they misunderstand you, smile. When they underestimate you, laugh. When they condemn you, ignore. When they envy you, rejoice. When they oppose you, prevail.
There are those with opposing views than your own. There are people and situations that may impede your progress. We can be pressed or pressured into giving up by whom or whatever opposes us. What we decide to do is our call and no one else’s.
Life can be a trip, with its peaks and lows. Sometimes it is a gold rush, other times it can be a rusty bucket. Regardless of the day and what gets in our way, we have to find our get up and go and keep going. We can face the opposition or we can do an about face. Just remember it is your call.
Stay inspired and keep rising.
