Questions. I often wonder why people ask questions and wait for answers and why they seek advice that they never intend on using or just never use.
There have been a lot of things in life that I’ve really really wanted so I actually know what it’s like to truly desire something with all of my mind, heart, body, soul, and spirit!
Many things were not in my control of obtaining (like having another baby) and many were (finding true love, losing weight, etc.)
So where am I going with all of this; well people are often asking me for advice and help (some even pay for it) and most never take the advice I give (or they give up too soon). This leads me to believe that whatever the thing was that they said they really really wanted, they really really didn’t want it bad enough. Some goals are hard, some dreams seem unreachable at times , but when you desire something so much that you feel empty without it or incomplete, you will love yourself enough to seek it/chase it/ set up for it/ and so on. Life is going to be hard regardless, you might as well live it hard while you are shooting for the stars!
You really want a job because you feel like you need it…you won’t settle until you have it.
You really want a winter coat because you feel like you need it, you’ll get it won’t you?
Is your heart telling you “We don’t need a man/woman’s love to be happy!” Or is that your brain saying that because your heart has been hurt?
Is your brain telling you “I’m husky/curvy and I love myself just the way that I am!” But what does your body say when it’s always sluggish, fatigued, and can’t fit into anything comfortably? What are you saying to yourself when the fact is you could be on your way to health problems and an early grave?
Here is the thing… I promise you I tried to be 100% joyful in my single and over weight state, but I could not ignore what I know to be true; IF I’M NOT MY BEST AND DOING MY BEST TO RECEIVE WHATS BEST, I’M SETTLING FOR LESS. That truth wasn’t OK with me and I think everyone has to be honest with themselves to get to the bottom of their truths as well.
Do you really want to live your best life and have your hearts desire? 1st things 1st, be real and honest with yourself and find out what your mind and your heart truly desires, (make sure they are on the same page.) Some things you’ll have to pray for and hope that God will give, but there are many things you can grab onto in this journey and not just sit back and hope that it happens.
And please don’t be afraid to seek some help... if you really really want “IT” nothing will stop you… and I mean NOTHING!
What do you desire most in your life right now that you don’t believe you can have?
