Stop Stopping YOURSELF

Was trying to find a nice quote about finding magic in the seemingly prosaic, and stumbled upon this wonderful little quote: “I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary”~ Elon Musk. I couldn’t help but smile when I read it – We all can do extraordinary things if we put our hearts to it.😊

In 2014, I prayed for God to transform me and every part of my life so that he could use me for his greater purpose. In doing so, I learned that God always changes the heart of the individual before he uses the individual to bring about change. While God is still growing and moulding me to become the woman he created me to be, I have become more aware of God’s beautiful presence and goodness in my life.

With each month that pass, opportunities are starting to unfold beautifully before my eyes. The more I seek God, the more is revealed to me. The miraculous love of God has changed me completely and whole-heartedly. And I am forever grateful!😊

Stop Stopping YOURSELF: Did you know that sometimes the biggest obstacles to our dreams are actually ourselves. There are so many reasons, so many excuses we use to not make our dreams come true. Sometimes those obstacles are simply out of control, but I’m not talking about those. I’m talking about the walls we put around ourselves, the doubt we place in our minds, and the lack of courage we have to take that first step.

We all want to live a life, free of regrets, but there is always going to be something that we wish we had done differently or something we should of pursued if we had a chance, but didn’t. Choose to BELIEVE in yourself. Choose to believe in what’s possible, and then do something about it. Growing up, I truly wanted to play the Piano. I was good, I was promising, and I was passionate. But that dream didn’t become a reality through magic. It takes sweat, determination and hard work. Today, I get to live out this dream with our Praise&Worship team. How great is that.😊

So I’m done stopping myself from doing what I want despite whether or not I’m good enough. If that is how you feel about your goal, and dreams then be ready to break down the walls you have put up for yourself, drown out the doubt that is going through your mind and start taking the first steps to get there. It’s as easy as saying ” I can and I will.”

Keep your dreams alive. Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn.💙

Blessings and Love.😊❤

  1. Inspiring blog post! Keep empowering other people. Everybody has these negative, egoic thoughts that make you doubt yourself. Just by being aware that these thoughts come and go like clouds in the sky, can create transformation in itself.

    When you feel boxed in, recognise that divine presence dissolves fear and resistance. This box is not real. Knowing that stillness removes obstacles is powerful stuff!
