In these final few weeks of 2021, take some time to sit with yourself and just be.
Settle your heart and accept all that has been and
Renew your hope for all that could be.
Seek wisdom and listen to wise counsel; then trust yourself and that muse in your soul.
Some dreams are so big and some callings so powerful that you’ll be paving the way into unfamiliar territory; so of course everyone won’t understand.
Trust the seed that God has placed in your heart.
Drown out your fears and ignore naysayers’ worries.
Believe that even in a pandemic you can deliver something amazing.
Envision the future you desire, and even as you keep climbing, start living in expectation.
You’ve got this. Trust yourself. Get ready to receive.
New seasons of life, new opportunities, new doors to walk through are often what we pray for; yet when they arrive, we sometimes quake in our boots. (See my raised hand.)
But as my late mother told me in our final conversation before her passing, “Sometimes you have to lose to gain.”
Growth = movement, and progress requires letting go of what’s in your hand now to take hold of the blessings that await.
When you feel at peace that you’re moving in the right ways and at the appointed time, go ahead and trust yourself – summon your courage and leap.
As one of my favorite quotes suggests, your next-level joy is on the other side of your fear of the unknown – and your purpose-driven path may be there, too:
“What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?”
