Life is full of ups and downs, joys and pains, high and lows, uplifts and let downs. It is easy to get defeated and throw in the towel. I say….not so fast! Now is the time to define where you presently stand. Are you surrounded by people that can pray for you? Do you have a relationship with the Most High? Are you listening to that inner voice that is guiding your every step? Do you have a relationship with yourself? Those are all vital questions you need to ask yourself. It is essential that you speak life into yourself, even when you don’t believe it. You simply cannot rely on others to uplift or support your ideas/dreams/desires. Sometimes you gotta cut that television off and focus on goals you want to obtain. You may also require solitude to assess where you are in life and if you are truly happy. You need down ass people in your life that make you accountable for your goals and inspire you not to give up. Folks that question if you are handling your business or if you are simply coasting from day-to-day. Don’t waste your talent. Don’t waste your gift. Don’t waste time with stagnant people. Find ways to carve out time every day to work on bettering yourself. Don’t feel guilty for being selfish. Stop making excuses for why you can’t do more (including myself)! 😊 Be there for someone that you know is going through a challenging time. Know when to just be an ear and when to speak. I ran into a lady yesterday at Walmart and she starting sobbing uncontrollably today. I asked if she was okay. She said no and she recently lost her husband. I hugged her tight and advised I don’t have the words to make her feel better, but I can simply love and hug on her. Guess what…that was sufficient. People need to feel love in whatever capacity you can offer. Take your power back from people and situations that have expired. You are no longer bound by negativity and your past. You are stepping into a season of grace that cannot be explained. You have to know that everything will work out. Keep the faith, hold tight, pray hard and appreciate where you are at this very moment. I believe in you. I dare you to believe in yourself. There are people waiting for you to step into your purpose and hear what you have to say. It is through your testimony that you can help someone advance to the next level. Nothing comes easy in life, but we do have a responsibility to make it easier for the next person. I firmly believe that. If I have the tools to help someone excel in an area that I have mastered, by all means….I am compelled and hold the responsibility of paying it forward. Change your behavior and mindset. Get out of a selfish mindset. It is not about you. It’s about us! Help them take their power back by claiming yours! Just do it…I am your biggest supporter. Be blessed and bold! There is no better time than now! Say, “ I want it. I allow it. And it is.” Shout out to Abraham Hicks!
