We are a flawed people. None of us are perfect. Because we are human beings, we are going to say and do things that will cause pain to others. There is a choice we have to make in this broken part of ourselves- the part that is flawed. because atlhough flawed, we’re also blessed with choice which allows us to discern good from bad… and be accountable for our actions in our adult decision making. The choices we make are never without consequence- so I’d rather make the right choices in my life, based upon how I was raised.
Life experiences have taught me how to use my “intuitive” thinking in that I’m open to how people react . How they handle inflammable & ofttimes volatile situations. How they use their voice for slander, innuendo and putdowns, instead of taking the high road that uplifts, embraces and encourages. I’m also open to how a people misuse their position of power-how a warped sense of entitlement have some of us thinking we are somehow better or superior to others- I urge you all- don’t believe the hype! We are all equal in the eyes of God.
God’s gift to us have been the very essence of “knowing.” We have to know that we are not less than another human walking the face of this earth! We have to know that we’re no better and no different than another human being, just because we have a college degree or can bake a cherry pie! There are many of us who have gone on to obtain the teachings that qualifies us to help empower another on his/her journey. When we apply those esteemed learned skills from a place of humbleness and humility-our blessing are abundant.
Do not live your life thinking someone else is better, prettier, have more, or know more than you. You are just as capable. Apply yourself to bettering yourself in areas of your interest and keep it moving. Do not wallow in what you don’t have. Remind yourself of all that you do have and count your blessings. These are my thoughts on my personal journey to becoming the woman I’ve always wanted to know. Am I there yet? The journey to living an authentic life is neverending. I think that’s the beauty of reawakening to who we are. For every challenge that threatens to bring us down and cause us grief? We can apply those sacred life lessons to help us find a soution and turn those challenges into opportunities of empowerment.
There’s a blogger who writes about how she is living and coping with a diagnosis of Bioplar. Her blogs have gotten so many followers and supporters because she is coming from a place of living her “truth.” This woman always make it a point to” like” my blog posts, as trivial and off the cuf some of them might be :) I am encouraged and inspired by her. I tell her how much her words empower and educate others. She is shining her light!
Live your purpose. Live your truth. Shine your light. Don’t allow other people opinions to sway your from taking the road least traveled…
