Don’t Quote Me! OK Do!

Hey beautiful people! This is me dropping by really fast to tell you how running away from responsibilities never helps you. Well I’m almost certain you knew that aleady but hey, no crime in a quick reminder.

You don’t grow from running away from your responsibilities; no, what you do is face them head-on.

I met the most timid person ever today… OK maybe I’m exaggerating a bit but extremely shy she was. So well lilo me couldn’t help myself; I used to be so shy (NEWS FLASH). OK back to my new friend, I got her talking and noticed she turned down every role that made people constantly look up to her or seek her out. She had done the running away thing for so long, it came naturally and just made her the nice girl who smiles at people and does the behind-the-scene-glueing.

P.S Plz tell me you know what that is.

Alright my point is: no one should be left to live that way; no one should have their self confidence so low that they never get the chance to be SEEN.

I believe everyone deserves to shine and confidence in self can be built and nurtured until you can wake up everyday ready to take on whatever life hurls at you.

Some people wear their confidence like cloaks and have mastered just how to rock it – keep doing that!

Some have it as little petticoats and people never get to see their full potential (no thanks) – you gotta change that!

That is exactly what my new friend and I have decided to do. She already agreed it’s a problem and a limit setter. I say that’s step one and we’ll build from there. She’s agreed to take on the next challenge without fear of what people might think ‘if’ she doesn’t do well. I think she will. AND people will always think what they like after all so no bother!

We’ll keep you posted on our progress only if you ask (yeah!)

Until then, lemme repeat myself:

You don’t grow from running away from your responsibilities; no, what you do is face them head-on. Now that builds your self confidence!

How Choosing To Forgive Totally Set Me Free!

Hi everyone! Apologies for the break in delivering those words you need to make your golden strides. I’m truly sorry and I must say, you have to forgive me because today, we’re going to learn to practice FORGIVENESS. So yes, you can start by forgiving me. Don’t point any fingers, it’s a start.

Before I go on, allow me share something one of my favourite authors said. Well get ready to forgive me again if I don’t say it just right. Stormie Omartian said, “Forgiving someone doesn’t make them right, it makes you free.” And I believe it. I know you’ve probably heard this before, and maybe in entirely different words but it’s true so I’m bringing it to you again.

Now for those wondering why I’m emphasizing on something that’s almost certain you’ve heard before, lemme help make it clear. This post is about forgiveness and how it sure does free you. It’s not meant to make you believe it any more than you already do but to let you know it is what it is. I know because I’m going to be using a really personal experience.

I love sharing stories with you so here goes mine. The first time I ever left home for longer than two whole weeks, it was for a specific study and I had to stay with my elder sister. Before we go on though, I should tell you she was an idol. My idol. I literally adored her. I imitated almost everything about her. And believe me, that’s not even doing justice to how we really were. I told her everything and she shared pretty much with me too.

Well that took a turn and if you’re guessing already what might have happened, keep trying.

… and then all that adoration seemed to be turning to rage. And anger. And bitterness towards…

To be continued.
