Although I've found a lot of things to enjoy during quarantine, I'm not going to deny the fact that I've also experienced disappointment during it, too. It's actually the very reason why I've taken action to support my mental and emotional health. This week, I want to encourage you to do the same.
Are we using our family members to excuse our inactivity? Are we using our environment to excuse our lack of productivity? Are we using our limited accessibility to excuse our development? It's time for some motivation and, maybe even, a kick in the butt! We will come out of this stronger!
There are way too many of us living beneath our means, our potential, our permission, and our access. We've allowed our insecurities to identify us and serve as excuses which keep us from moving forward for far too long, and it ends now. Could our obsession with forgiveness be fueling our insecurities and negativity? I'm stepping lightly because forgiveness has given me a reason to live, but lately, God has placed two scriptures on my heart to serve as encouragement, and I want to ask you to do more than just read them with me. Visualize them in action.
We chose to believe that those things that had connected us were stronger than anything that could distance us, and then we decided to act like we believed it. If you need a little encouragement this Valentine's Day, I'd like to share a few tools you can use to strengthen your relationship.
I think one of the hardest things about starting a new year is the realization of how much work you have left to accomplish on the goals that continue to linger from the past. It doesn’t make it any easier when you criticize yourself for not having moved beyond it. When the new year strikes, it can feel counterproductive to work on old goals when everyone is so consumed over the newness of the opportunities ahead. It’s times like those that often lead us to question whether we’ll continue to deal with the same distractions, delays, and disappointments in the future, and that is where I come in.
