The Courage of a Lion!

The things that hold us back from living the life we so want to live…..or the life God wants for us.  The list……..

1) Fear

Huh….that is all I got!

Fear is the one thing that holds us back…even if that fear is wrapped up in apathy or ambiguity…I believe it all boils down to fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of rejection, fear of others, fear of change, fear of happiness…because we feel unworthy.  Yup…I believe it all comes down to fear in one form or another.

So let us ask for courage!  Affirmations & prayers! All need to ask for courage!

“I AM courageous! I AM fearless! I AM worthy!”

Dear God, Give me the courage to live my life in the way YOU would want me to! Let me face this life with a fearless nature; one that will stop at nothing to help others and create change!  Thank you for the courage of a lion!  Thank you for a life of fearlessness!  Thank you for the courage to know it is better to live a life of passion, to help others and create change, than to succumb to the “what ifs” of this world and the unknown! ~ Amen!

So let’s all go out and be a LION!

I’m Not Weak…..

Enjoying the sunI can remember once telling a friend (someone I also thought of as a business partner) that I felt a deep knowing that I needed others to make my dreams happen. That, in essence, it takes a village to create change. I remember when I shared this with her it was met with dismay; and outright shock, as if it were a weakness. I can remember her feelings were that I didn’t need anyone else to create change, that I could do it alone, and how sad it was that I felt the way I did.

Looking back I know that I felt shame at that time. I felt a real weakness created in me because of her reaction. Of course this was my issue; how she felt about the subject doesn’t have anything to do with me. Well….other than the fact that it was about 2 weeks later that we dissolved our friendship and our partnership (if indeed there ever was a real partnership). We definitely were/ are not compatible or of like mind. But that is how life happens; you weed out the people who you do not serve and who do not serve you.

I now know that this desire in me to have other people around me, people who I can collaborate with, is not a weakness; it is a strength! I am not afraid to let others shine for the good of the whole! I want to create change! And if it takes a village then please……lead me to the village!

Peace!
