Hey there friend, thanks for joining me.
“Some people will only love you if you fit into their box, don’t be afraid to disappoint.”
There is a life that all of us are eager to live. Some of us have no idea what it is, others are certain about every single step they take. I have found that the more carved out I have made my life to be, setting certain parameters for how I will live or what I will or will not do, the more push-back I get. Now, I am not saying that it isn’t normal to go head on with obstacles, sure, they’re everywhere but the tighter I held onto my idea of what life should look like, the more disappointing and un-enjoyable it became. The more I tried to attain to my own ideals, the more frustrated I became.
Whose ideals are we supposed to live up to? Who are we trying to please? Why is it, that when I thought I knew what I was doing, I realized I had no idea what I was doing, at all? These are general questions at the moment, we’ll get into the potatoes on these thoughts at some point.
If there is anything I have learned recently, you can’t please everyone. No, I take that back, you can’t please anyone. So, don’t bother trying. Just be the amazing person Papa created you to be and your people will surround you with love.
Without even realizing it some of the people in your life have placed parameters around you, in addition to the walls and fences and limitations you have placed around yourself. The sky really is the limit if you believe it will be. Do you want to go further? Break free? Find the life that you were destined to live? Then let me ask you, what are you going to do about it? “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” Henry Ford.
My mind needed to change, my thought patterns, my perspective, everything. I needed an overhaul, I’m still a work in progress. We all are. There were so many things I spent too much time thinking about that I just wasn’t designed to carry the load for. All the worries that used to swirl around in my head. Oh sure, they come back and pester me but I recognize their illegal access much quicker now and ship them back off in prayer.
It’s just time to move on, isn’t it? To break out of old habits; ways of thinking, way of living. This is what this blog is going to be about, life happening. Whatever it looks like, however it comes along. To just roll with it and not get knocked down by life but be empowered by the gifts we have to power through. God had a much bigger plan than to get plowed over, He had a plan for us to thrive!
