One of the biggest things holding people back in life, and in anything they aspire to do is the fear of being judged. To be free means owning who you are, what you believe in, the morals you stand for, what you spend your time on, and how you carry yourself. As well as the mistakes you make, and not feeling guilty about them, but learning from it and looking at it from an outside perspective.
Stop rejecting yourself. If you want to accomplish something, just do it. You either want it, or you don’t, there is no in between. If you come from a place of love for yourself and those around you, being judged won’t even matter to you. You can go through your day with peace in your mind and joy in your heart.
Respect your dreams and goals and make time for you to accomplish them. Do the work it requires to get there. Remember, nothing worth having comes easy. Do this for you, not because of other people. Don’t make your choices based on what others THINK you should do- If you do, you will never be at peace with yourself- EVER.
So, Start today. Make the time to love yourself more, to better yourself so you can be happy, fully. And to be happy, you have to keep God first in everything. He has to be your number one priority in you. If it means getting up a little early to talk to God, do it. If you do not support yourself, who will? If others choose to not support you, it should not cause you to think less about yourself. Allow yourself some grace and keep moving forward.
Right now, as you are, you are more than enough. God doesn’t need you to tick any boxes. He doesn’t need you to dress a certain way. He doesn’t want you to change yourself so that you ‘fit in’ to society’s mould. The mould that society has for you, is the same mould it has for every other person, too.
And when it comes to the Man up there, His purpose and calling for your life isn’t the same as your next door neighbor. It isn’t the same as the person you’re comparing yourself to or the person that gives you that judgmental look every time. God’s mould for you is different to His mould for them. It is unique. It is special. And it is designed specifically for you. So right now, as you are, you are more than enough.
A productive Tuesday to you all!
