Higher than This: Trusting Self in 2012

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. – Golda Meir

On this Resurrection Day, I’m pushing myself to live out  a resurgence of faith…in myself.  Logic is a cunning distraction.  The if’s and but’s of reasoning and deduction whittle away at my trust of self.

The eternal truth lies in acts of instinct.  Rooted in prayer and discernment with community, yes.  BUT, listen to the whispers of opportunity that haunt you.  They are dying to be nurtured.  Days and weeks of contemplation turn to months of pondering, then years of stagnant slumber.  No more.

It is passion that lies at the heart of  a pure deed.  Such an act reflects a genuine love and honoring of life, because regret will have no doubt on which to feed; one’s soul can enjoy rest and more importantly, restoration, facing each new day unrestricted by the past.

I must live into God’s’ unwavering love; despite the contradictions, disappointments and betrayals the linger.  I must honor the miracles I see every day by creating some of my own.

You gotta let go of your insecurity
Explore the passion in your possibilities
You will find love and no love
can be higher than this
What can be Higher than this

-from “Higher Than This” by Ledisi

Resurrect hope.

Celebrate life.

Be brave and free.

    I plan to bring back to life,my life this year. I have the tendency to internalize something I feel kite has gotten worse over the years. This year I plan to live outloud! I just want to enjoy both the santuary of my kitchen with a cup of coffee to the exploration of my community with my fellow peeps.

    • This sounds like an incredible plan, and I offer my ear and support in your journey. Be unapologetic in your commitment to yourself! Be blessed and stay tuned for more!
