What I Want

This journal entry means a lot to me. I saw this quote somewhere last year and wanted to remember it. The difference between this time and last time is that I’ve seen the product. I re-read this journal entry as a challenge or “words to live by” for myself over that last year. Soon after I wrote this in my journal, i started seeing my life, my teaching, my confidence, and my relationships shift.So i’ll ask you... how different would your life be if you actually went after what you wanted? God is good, y’all. happy monday!

DREAM BIG

When the Brown Bears were away for six weeks of camp this summer, I decided to surprise them and redo their rooms.

A TEENAGERS DREAM ROOM.

Loft beds, desks, new bedding. I also decided to give them each a chalk board wall and I committed to putting something positive on the board above their bed each month, so it was the first thing they saw each morning.

All of our children have the ability to have a beautiful impact on the world. It may be through art, music, words, legislation or science. They just need to be reminded.

The World can't break you.

No matter what you see on the news.

No matter what arguments you catch yourself in the crossfire of.

No matter the opinions beliefs and actions of scarcity and fear.

The World can't terrorize or scare you into submission because you are made of sturdier substance.

Resilience and heart.

I doubt myself often. I look at myself and think I'm to small to make a difference. ~A small belief that has kept so many of us playing the smallest game.~

Yet when I feel my spirit and the leadership that is rising in the next generation.

There's a mightiness there. I see it in the eyes of my children and their friends. I see it in the eyes of my friends and family.

It's there.

It's strong.

It's courageous.

Trust your heart and don't let the fog silence who you are. The fog can't scare or terrorize your Soul into submission.

It's always your choice.

Looking through old journals and found this message I wrote to myself last year before i quit a job in which I could no longer grow. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

You only have this life to try to find out what it means to be alive in this body. Don't waste a second of it holding on to what no longer fits or trying to be a copy of what already exists. Stop calling the tight space of your comfort zone, your home. There's more to life than the four walls you have trapped yourself in defining what you do. Go out and discover what this huge world has to offer. Stop calling the cookie cutter image you have modeled yourself into, who you are. Break free from all you think you're "supposed" to be and create what you want to be. Give the World the privilege of meeting someone they have yet to see.

It is your choice what you do with your time on earth. You could be alive OR simply exist. You can live as you OR live never meeting who you were meant to be.

It's always a choice.

So choose wisely. Choose passionately. Choose authentically.

You know who inspires me? People who stretch themselves beyond the limits of their fears and show up anyways. People who are open, vulnerable and know that sharing the truth is going to help others become more comfortable with sharing their's. Those are the people who touch my soul and they help me in so many ways because of their humanity.

 

Thank you to the people who inspire me everyday to get up and NOT sit, walk or run toward my dream but to FLY toward my dreams.
