It’s been a few months since I last posted. I’ve been on a short journey of discovery. Discovering just who I really am, where I want to go, and what I want to accomplish. Back in January I wrote a blog about being real. I wrote about sadness, disappointment, and my struggle to make sense of a life that seemed cruel and unfair. It spoke of unfinished plans and how I always end up back where I started. But this time feels different. I have answers to questions that before I never had. I think I was good at starting things, but the follow through needed a little work. Sometimes projects are easy to start but harder to finish. I’m reading Jon Acuff’s book, Finish, right now, and it’s really helped give some clarity on where I’ve been bogged down and given me some tools to help me move forward. I’m also reading a book on cognitive behavioral therapy that’s really helped with understanding who I am and how I’m wired together. I’m learning to love me and who I am. For so long I’ve tried to be something and someone I’m not supposed to be, and that has caused me to not like myself very much. I’m learning, when you just do you, it’s so much easier than when you masquerade around as someone you’re not. When you just be yourself things are so much clearer and easier. People need me to be me, because only I can give what’s in me. The same goes for you. Being something we’re not makes us a counterfeit, a forgery, a fake. Sure some of our roles may be similar but again only I can be me, and only you can be you. Going forward I’ve set some goals for myself, and then I adjusted those goals to help me achieve them. My plan is to be more consistent with the content on this platform, as well as YouTube and other forms of social media. I’ll link each of them together so that people will have access to everything I put out. I’m gonna be really vulnerable, but I truly believe it’s time I stop hiding and just put myself out there and see where it goes from there. I believe in me. and that’s really important. I’ve not had that for some time. I believe it’s the first step in achieving the success I know is necessary to fulfill the call and assignment on my life. I’ll share the struggles I’ve had on my journey as well as my successes, and we’ll all learn to grow from them. We’ll laugh together, and cry together. Ultimately my goal is to help everyone who follows me to be the best you that you can be, to feel good about just being you, and for you to learn to measure yourself only by you not everyone else. You are the best you that will ever be, and I’m the best me that will ever be. Here’s to the future. May it be more successful than we could ever dream.
