Believe in Yourself

Good morning and another happy Monday to you all! I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m feeling really optimistic about this week. God’s got some big things brewing and I just feel it in my spirit! Something’s about to shift, about to change for the better. So today, I want to encourage everyone to just believe in yourself!

If you really know me at all, I am super self critical. I can always find something wrong with my work, I can always improve somehow, my stuff is often not good enough for me, and I know I’m not the only one. Over the course of this year, (and maybe my whole life honestly) my biggest barrier to progress has definitely been myself.

I can be such a perfectionist. Everything I do, I want it to be the best thing I’ve ever done. Even with the joys of the journey, once the end of the road is in sight, I tend to drag my feet rounding the corner because I always know I can do so much better. The truth is though, as long as I look at my own work, it’ll never truly be as great as I want it to be.

There’s always so much learning to do, but one of the biggest things I can say I learned recently is to step outside of my own head. I am so filled with joy and a sense of accomplishment knowing how many of you love what I have to say, even when I think I could’ve said it better. That’s the way the world works though; you got a gift to share with others, not to hold it all in for yourself. So whatever it is you do, put it out there, believe in yourself! When you believe in yourself, other people do too.

I hope everyone has a great day, a great week, a great life. Let’s remember that we are our biggest enemy sometimes. Don’t let that self doubt come and steal your joy, or your peace, or your purpose! I want you to say this quick prayer: “Lord, thank you for my gift. Thank you for giving me a way to commune and fellowship and truly touch and inspire other people. Please give me the strength, courage, a perseverance to use my gift in it’s maximum capacity. Amen.”

Like I said, big things are coming, great things are coming, but you’ve got to believe in yourself before you can see them too! Happy Monday!

Lose that Worry

I know so often, especially in today’s climate, it’s so easy to be overwhelmed with doubt and worry. Everything seems like its moving a hundred miles an hour, every day seems like it comes and goes in a flash, there’s all this stuff we had planned, stuff we were used to doing, all gone with no sure sign of when things are going to turn around. Trust me, I know it is so easy to worry, but let me say this too, it’s so freeing to put that worry to rest.

“Three little birds, sat at my window, and they told me I don’t need to worry.” Corinne Bailey Rae said these words on one of my favorite songs, “Put Your Records On.” This week’s theme is to not worry.

We’re officially in a new season, in three days we’ll be in a new month, and in 3 months we’ll be in a new year. With all the things to worry about in the world, let’s take this week to really unload. New seasons bring a chance for new change and new opportunities. Let’s spend this week in good spirits, spirits free from worry.

Let’s start this Monday with a simple prayer, “Lord thank you for a chance to start new. Thank you for this new season of change and blessings and opportunities. Please free my mind, body and spirit of all worry and negativity. Allow this freeness from worry me to follow me through this week and the rest of my life. Amen.”

Just like that, even without three little birds on your window sill, you have the same reminder not to worry. Enjoy this day and everyday from here. Be blessed, be safe, be worry-free and as always , happy Monday!
