be-you-unapologetically

True acceptance requires you to be who you are. Not change who you are.

I’m flawed. You’re flawed. We’re all flawed. Therefore, none of us are perfect. Yet ‘perfect‘ is the image so many of us strive for.  As if perfection is something we can actually achieve. Rather than view our flaws or imperfections as gifts or opportunities for God to show himself strong in our flaws, we see them as deficiencies, inadequacies, and disabilities.

abundance mindset

What’s the secret to an abundant life? It’s probably not what you think.

Toxic Fishbowls

Fish living in a goldfish bowl are not living their best life. Because most fish bowls lack a filtration system to keep their environment clean and free of toxins, very few goldfish survive for more than a few weeks. A bowl simply can’t provide a suitable living environment for any fish to live a healthy and long life. Likewise, an unfiltered or poorly filtered mind does not lead to living life more abundantly. When our thoughts go unchecked and unfiltered, we develop toxic mindsets that cause us to lead unhealthy, unproductive, and unhappy lives. But a new way of thinking will always precede a new way of living.

He’s always there. Lurking in the shadows. Glaring. Staring. Blaming and blaring.

So I asked:

Who are you? What do you want from me?  Why do you constantly pursue and accuse me?
Why won’t you leave me alone? Why do you torment me?  Stop obscuring my sight!
Can’t you see I’m tryna move forward, and make moves with my life?
I demand to know who you are! I demand to know what you want!!
Show me your face now! So we can get on with this fight!

THE BIG VOICE IN MY HEAD

I’d like to tell you a story. This story is about a little girl who had a big dream of becoming a writer. She wanted her words to inspire, encourage and give hope to the heart of every reader who came across her written words. But there was this one BIG problem, the gremlin. You see the gremlin was the loud, mean, nasty and demeaning voice she always heard inside of her head. It would always say things to her such as:

Why is asking for help so hard?

Braveheart

What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done? Go sky-diving or mountain climbing? How about stand up to a ‘mean’ girl or bully, your boss or an abuser? Or maybe you braved up by speaking up in at a meeting on a policy or practice that didn’t seem right. Maybe you simply decided to start speaking up about your true thoughts and feelings.  For many of us, the bravest thing we’ve can ever do is ask for help.

All of us have (or will) will experience seasons in life when we feel tired and broken down from the storms and trials of just living. But the key is making the decision to persevere and rise up. For some storms and struggles in life, we may find ourselves weak and unable to rise up. There are some things we simply can’t handle on our own.
