TIME TO HIT THE PAUSE BUTTON: MY DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
Everyone wishes that they could change something in their life. My life would be perfect if I had the money to do this or do that. My life would be great if I just had this. If only I was thinner, if I was richer, if I was taller…the list goes on. Too many times we put our life on hold patiently waiting for nothing. Why do we torture ourselves when time continues and we need to embrace life?
Too bad life isn’t like video. There are definitely a few things I’d rewind in my life. Hell, there are more than a few spots I’d like to edit/cut completely. I have to remember that GOD doesn’t make mistakes. We have free-will and sometimes GOD will take what we see as a defeat and turn it into a victory. I have to believe that. It keeps me going.
I’ve lost so many that were precious to me in the last few years. More than I’d like to remember. What’s interesting about all of them is that they lived life to the fullest. Not only did they leave an indelible print in my heart, but they touched the lives of numerous people. Some they never knew. There are some things that we had planned to accomplish together that I feel obligated to finish. There are other things that I want to accomplish that only me and GOD know.
My Mother sent something to my email and it talked about how an eagle will take their children to the highest point they can find and then drop them. This is part of the process in teaching them to fly. As the eaglet drops the eagle will come and rescue them if they don’t take flight. The process is repeated, and repeated until the eaglet soars.
Okay GOD. Maybe I’m only speaking for myself, but I’m tired of being dropped and I want to soar. Please GOD let me get the lesson so I don't continue with the same mistakes. I'll trust YOU. I’m ready to be EVERYTHING YOU say I am. Obviously, my way isn’t working. I want so many things for my life that if I were to name them all it would sound like a laundry list. It’s time to hit the pause button. Life doesn’t stop while you’re practicing and busying yourself with a dress rehearsal. It’s time to press record. If you’re waiting until everything is perfect before you hit record; nothing will ever happen.
No my mind hasn’t changed…I still want a healthy relationship, a viable business, success in every area of my life. I need my daughter to have everything she wants and needs. I ask GOD to give my Mother divine health. I want to be happy, but it’s not any good for me unless I know they’re okay. My prayer is to be and walk in the path that GOD has for me. I ask the same for you.
Question: What’s standing in the way of you having everything you want?
Hopefully, your answer is not the same as mine. ME
