So this new song released intimidate is a good song for me right now. It's a great breaking off point for me- to eliminate the people pleaser in me that wants to make everyone happy.
I hope I am a person that is kind, merciful and loving ... as all people should be. (i'm not perfect but I try to always show compassion and consideration for others)
In the past tho.. I took matters to the extreme. I believed that success was only in one type of package and believe that maybe I didn't deserve respect because I was different or emotional or creative.
My self-worth was always measured by some-one else's yard stick. Not my own.
I am learning to let that go. Be my own story.. with all the twists and turns that any "good" story has.
I can only live one day at a time, today was good... thats good enough for me. I have a plan for tomorrow and enough wisdom to hold on to it loosely because you never know what a day may bring.
Leah's lesson for the day.
Don't let the haters intimidate you. Just be yourself and be stronger. The greatest thing I heard this week when I wanted to climb back in the pitiful place again when things got hard. "They think you aren't strong enough to make it!" - My tears stopped so quickly it shocked even me. It was so true- I was letting an opinion take me to the place by my choice. They chose to say it, I was choosing to live it.
This battle is a long one with many little battles to fight. Thank God I have a support system who love me enough to say "get over yourself" every once in a while.
Hope you enjoy the song, and it reminds you to stand firm against those who draw their swords. Nothing enfuriates an enemy more than standing your ground with a smile. Try it, watch them squirm. :-)
Keep your chin up.
Lately I've been struggling with growing pains. How do you move into a new phase of life when all the ties to your current life are screaming for attention?
I'm so thankful for things to be finally changing. The end-of-the-tunnel light is not just a pin point in the distance and that's amazing!
I'm doing a lot of soul searching and praying about making the right decisions and not getting distracted by things that can hold me back.
Do you step into the unknown or let things stay safe?
I am in the place between.
