Perseverance ~ persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
Hello everyone! Part of my goal setting is doing monthly blogs now, am I literary genius? Hell no, but I am willing, I won’t be anything if I stay in fear and settle. What do you gain by doing that? Not a damn thing just more low self-esteem of wishing what you would have done. I’m going to do something even if I do it wrong, those other and old thoughts have held me back long enough!!! Fu(K the nay~sayers that would have us live lives that make them comfortable.
We are at the end of January and it seems as though some are falling off their charted desires already, into the comfort of “acceptance” of this is just the way it is. What causes this belief is the fear, I too have struggled with this and rationalized and justified the lack of cooperation on my own part through the maze of distractions and procrastination of getting my behind on the path or course if you will. Sometimes we even blame others or give our power away as an excuse. I have learned those things do not propel me to the place that I want to be. We will be interrupted, do we want to bitch about it and resent it or get back to business?
Let’s get back to business! There’s my business, God’s business and someone else’s business.
The biggest change for me in miraclizing and magicalizing my dreams was realizing that “I don’t know,” and being willing to learn. It is unfortunate but lasting that I learn through making mistakes, but now I am middle aged and don’t have time for fear of making f’ing mistakes. I just have to be willing to exert the energy and see what happens. When we are in our own business and not depending on others approval we are not afraid.
Being “spiritual” isn’t being a doormat,not honoring ourselves, it isn’t about JUST praying and waiting and hoping, It’s about being assertive and praying for good God given direction and getting off your butt and taking the journey even if we do it wrong. Don’t depend on anyone to do it for you. If you do it wrong it will be better next time if you are willing to listen and learn and not take it personal. Everything is personal and it isn’t . If you take defeat personal it is and it will break you, if not it isn’t it’s a learning tool.
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ~ Maya Angelou
I discovered many books that helped me live, learn, love and grow. I have learned there is no plateau to our growth and learning. In fact, the older I get the more I desire it for my fear is that I will constrict and shrivel up if I don’t expand my mind by reading and learning; soul though praying and meditating, staying present and focused on what is my business and happening now in my space: and continue to appreciate all that and my body too. This morning I was looking at my hands and thinking about what I will touch in “2020.” I look at my feet and I wonder where my mind and desires will lead me.
There are things to be excited about, things to be passionate about, it’s not too late. Gratitude for the things above and the things money can’t buy like kindness and love. If we are kind and loving people don’t care if we make mistakes pursuing our passions, it’s part of the journey.
As I said, I am going to make a blog once a month. I began making videos at the end of August last year, it has been an experience, I have made mistakes, I wish I would have done better on some of them but it is true I can learn from them and remake them, they are part of my journey. So you too can see my mistakes on YouTube, I will make errors writing too but I’m going to do it anyway. I know how to be a Life Coach and that’s what I do with my business but I give experiences away too to help you understand that you are not alone. I love humanity with all the quirks that build our character, who will we connect with? There is variety.
I hope you are planning and staying your course for “2020,” don’t be discouraged by what others say. Find the people that are doing what you desire to do and do what they did.
Go for your dreams, goals and visions don’t worry about it being perfect or making mistakes, it takes practice. Trust me, most of the time you can do it again in the time you wish you had done it in the first place, Lol 🙂 Understand?
Much love and many blessings,
