People Hold Tight to YOUR Mistakes!

It’s hard when we want to change, we begin to change, but people hold us to our past. People will always remember what you said, what you did, and will make lite of what you are NOW saying and doing.  It will get better. As long as it took to create this reputation in people’s minds- it will take a minute or so to begin to break down the past and rebuild your new present!  

But only in the eyes of others. Truth is as frustrating as that may be, what’s important here is that you need only to prove anything to yourself. The rest will follow. But in your heart, deep down where it counts, you know the truth! Are you changing? Have you changed? That’s what matters! 

In the meantime stay strong! Be true to who you are. Don’t let their having to “catch up” bring you down. 

But do think on this- IF you are wishy washy….. If one minute you are this “new” person filled with the strength and perseverance to change….. And the next you are….not, don’t be mad at others for not taking you seriously. Always be honest. Don’t be a victim.; be a victor. Part of that path will be to be honest and accept responsibility! 
You can do anything you set your mind to! ❤️❤️

Love is Stronger…

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death. – Robert Fulghum

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!
