I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being. Maya Angelou
I love Maya Angelou so much. I love her courage and her ability to use her voice. I love that she stood up for what she believed in and that she didn’t cower to the ways of the world.
I have lots of ladies who have shaped my life by the bravery they used for their own lives.
I find myself on the edge of a new life for myself right now. It’s scary as hell moving forward and when I feel overwhelmed I think of the amazing woman who came before me.
I realize they were afraid a lot of the time too, but that never stopped them. It never made them quit or give up or become defeated, it made them stronger and wiser and bolder and braver.
There are times in our lives when it feels as though we have just given up. We feel as though we are stuck and try as we might to change things, we can’t ever seem to get it right.
Maybe it’s because we’re not supposed to get it right. Maybe we’re supposed to keep moving forward, and never stop and sit idle. Maybe getting it wrong is part of getting it right, because at least your trying.
We often try to leap over problems or find a way to go around them so we don’t have to deal with them, but that never produces good results in our life. We might avoid dealing with them for a long time but they will remain in our way until we find the courage to go through them. If we hope to see the end fulfillment of our dreams, we need to go all the way through the things that are blocking our path. We cannot go part of the way and then park when life is difficult.
I have been parked in my own pain for a couple of years. Fighting to create the family life I’ve always envisioned. I’ve been studying myself relentlessly and working wholeheartedly on becoming the woman God wants me to be.
This means that I had to go through the pain and the hurts that I carried around with me. This mean that I was feeling and seeing things differently then I ever have in my entire life.
It means that I decided to get rid of all the negative voices that come from the devil and learn how to listen to the voices that come from my father.
I still have so much more work to do and I know that God has big plans for me. Being successful in anything isn’t a one time achievement but rather a continual state of being.
Please continue to lift me up I need your prayers your love and your strength to see me through.
