Contrary to my environment, other people, negative circumstances, failed relationships, or a bad past, I know that I deserve the best this life has to offer. I’ve had my fill of junk. I no longer wait for others to do right by me. Today, I take back the power to control my life. How? By first believing in my heart of hearts, that I deserve the best this life has to offer. No doubts and no looking back. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Do you believe you deserve the best this life has to offer?
I’m too far from the ledge and unable to see the bottom. Strangely enough, I’m enjoying the scenery around me. Already, I’m seeing precious clues that explain what led me to the ledge. This gives me much-needed encouragement. Some days I feel hopeful. Other days, I question my sanity. But letting go and embracing the new isn’t always easy. This past week, I was tempted with an easy way out of my situation. Goodness, I wanted so badly to just accept the offer. However, I made a promise to myself that I would keep the promises that I make to myself. I am excellent at keeping promises to other people. But lately, I have been struggling keeping promises to myself. We’ve all been there. It starts out with small things that eventually leads to bigger unkept agreements. It’s a delicate dance trying to balance this thing called life. I work hard to make all my dreams come true, but I need to slow down enough to enjoy each precious moment. So right now, free fallin’ is just my speed. And at the right moment, I believe God will pull the parachute cord to give me a safe landing.
Are you committed to making your dreams come true?
I’ve come to a place where the things I used to do don’t work anymore. I know I need to make changes, but honestly, I’m scared. Yes, even I get scared. Even though I don’t like it, there’s comfort in the familiar. However, now there is more at stake. More of my dreams are becoming reality and I want to be fully present to receive them. So I have decided to place myself into uncharted territory. It’s been a long time since I have been here, and all I feel is vulnerable. I feel so exposed and wide open. I find myself wondering if this journey will ask me to give up certain people or things along the way. Will I have the courage to do so or will the people in my life love the new me? At times, the fear of the unknown can get the best of me. Thank God for my own personal cheering section. But if truth be told, there is a hint of excitement. Excitement for all the wonderful things I have to gain. Also, excitement that I love myself enough to do whatever it takes to live life abundantly.
Is there anyone else out there that wants to take a leap of faith in order to make their dreams come true? You don’t have to do it alone. There’s nothing wrong with you for being scared to do it. It takes courage to become the person you want to be. And even if our paths never cross professionally, I hope that you will find both the will and the way to living out all of your dreams.
Is the time right for you to hire a Future Focused Lifecoach?
Talking with a good friend the other day, I was blown away at how far my life has come. I felt so inspired that I wrote down all of the things I have been through within the past 15 years and compared it to where I am now.
For me, writing things down and seeing my life on paper, helped me to see things clearer. It also gave me a deeper appreciation for myself. I realized, that even in my lowest moments, I was brave enough to dream and pursuit a better life.
Today, I feel more encouraged than ever. I learned that I am a loving, compassionate, resilient, and a determined woman. So with each day, I vow to myself, that I will not stop living life to the fullest until I have squeezed out every bit of goodness this life has to offer.
How will you inspire yourself today?
Sometimes it gets really difficult to see the good within ourselves. Lord knows I have been there more times than I care to count. When life changing circumstances, negative influences, or personal insecurities begin to speak loudest in your heart, make the effort to change the conversation.
In a perfect world, fear or insecurities would have no place in our lives. However, what makes us brave is when we make a conscious decision to fight through our battles despite what our feelings or circumstances tell us.
Begin to tell yourself those things that make you a valuable person, ask your family/friends what they most appreciate about you, and do something kind for another person. I guarantee your heart will begin to heal and you will be placed on a path that leads to your awesome destiny.
Some days it feels as if time is moving very fast. You wake up one day and realize the year is more than half completed. Today is a great day to read that book on your nightstand, take a cooking class, or go on a well deserved vacation. Either way, small positive changes will reap huge beautiful results.
