Happy Tuesday, Overcomers!
Today, I want to ask you (us) to be kind to yourself.
The same grace and forgiveness that you extend to others? Extend it to YOU.
The same way you extend a pass to others for being human? Extend it to YOU.
Stop being your own hater.
Stop being your own enemy.
Stop putting yourself down.
Start building yourself up.
Start affirming yourself.
Start applauding yourself.
Starting telling yourself, “I can do it.”
Start pursuing your best version of yourself.
I’m wearing the “fussing Auntie” hat today. And while I’m fussing at you, I’m fussing at me, too.
I’m finished fussing now. (smile)
I want to see you win. I want you to have the best. I want you to be the best version of you possible. You have permission to live!
Happy Friday, Overcomers!
I’m my early twenties, I had a dream that I will never forget. I was in a corner store, and someone came in shooting. As I stood frozen in fear, bullets were hitting me but bouncing off me and hitting the floor. All I kept hearing in my ear was, “No weapon formed against you will prosper,” which is found in Isaiah 54:17. I did not know at the time that weapon formed against me was me.
Years later, I reflect often on this dream. I reflect on a loving Father that saved me from myself – how He protected me. He saved me from the way I felt about myself. The way I felt about life. I’m not going to ever lie to you and say that it’s all been perfect. It’s not going to happen in a blink of an eye, but through process and work, you will get there.
It will get better. Every day is not going to be a bed of roses. Matter of fact, if you know anything about roses, you know that there are thorns on the stem. But they’re still beautiful, yes? So, I want to encourage you on this journey that we are on, that though there are thorns, the roses (your life) is still beautiful. You are beautiful. You are worth the time invested in you by your loved ones. You are valuable. You are loved. You are enough.
Thought for today:
I’m thankful that you are reading this blog. I am thankful that you have decided to give life another try.
As you head into the weekend, will you do me a favor? Have some fun. Hang out with some friends. Get some sun. Allow someone to show you some love. I look forward to speaking to you Monday.
