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!

 

Move That Mountain!

I command the mountain to move! Because I have faith! I know through you all things are possible. And the mountain will move.

Recently I thought I had learned something new about myself- I thought I had a huge AHA moment regarding my need of others to help me accomplish goals in life. While it may have been true of me at one time, it is no longer!
All I need in this world to help me achieve all of my goals, dreams, and desires, is YOU!
And here is the amazing part- once I realized I am not weak, I also realized God puts people in my life that I need and if that need is to help me accomplish my goals then so be it. That does not make me, or you, a weak person. It makes a strong, wise, person! One who is wise enough to recognize God moving!
And one who knows that if I command the mountain to move… It will move through my faith in God! And that mountain, metaphorically speaking, is my goals, dreams, and desires!
Peace and Love-Christine
