Measure your success only by what truly matters: Your happiness and the happiness you bring to others. If today you laughed, felt inspired or consoled a friend, smiled at a stranger, stood for a cause, or inched closer to one of your dreams, then today was a resounding success.
There are times: when you feel young and excited about what God has in store for you and then, there are those other times where you are anxious and worried because it seems like time is passing you by. In that moment: don’t look to your friends or to someone you look up to. Please don’t look to someone else’s life on Instagram. Don’t even look at your past accomplishments. Look to God. Let him wrap you up in his grace and and wait for what he is about to reveal to you.😊
There is nothing like walking in your lane and doing what God has specifically called you to do. As you are shifting, you will begin to realize that you are not the same person you used to be. Where you once remained quiet, you are now speaking your truth. You are beginning to understand the values of your choices and some situations that no longer deserve your time, energy and focus.
One thing you should never do? Spend time trying to prove to anyone that you are great, your actions will speak for themselves. When you are doing what God called you to do, you will never fail. Instead of trying to have everything figured out, try to figure this out: Have you ever seen a thirsty ocean? Or air grasp for breath? Has it ever seemed that the sky wanted to stretch out more or that the rainbow wanted more colours? Before you look for something, look at what you already have. Don’t ask for more than you need. Don’t let your wants replace your needs because a day will come when you will lose what you need to get what you want.
I have learned that as long as I hold fast to my beliefs and values and follow my own moral compass – then the only expectations I need to live up to are my own. And as long as we keep our hearts open and understand that there is so much more to each and every single one of us, we will accomplish all that we set set our hearts to do.💙 GOD BLESS!
Blessings and Love.😊
