So I have stumbled over some serious Monday Motivation and thought it well to take my lunchtime to share this with you as I know in my heart somewhere out there there sure is someone who needs this the way I did this morning.
I once read a quote that said "be the light in a so often dark world" and this morning in a meeting when something similar came up I somehow thought to myself about how often we get swallowed and pulled in by darkness, how often its easy to fall back into negativity or do what I will never admit to doing... give up...
Taking the oh so easy way out, Giving up on people when you don't seem to get what you emotionally need. Giving up hope when things get tough and you are forced out of your comfort zone. Giving up on health because it is hard, it is expensive and where to find time? Giving up on your dreams because they seem too big, too Ridiculous, too far away from the norm. Giving up on something you believe in because of someone else opinion that might have hurt your inner voice and last but not least giving up when you don't seem to see light... Throwing your hands in the air and choosing to fail in your own dreams. That something you longed for to your very core but it seemed impossible, It seemed too hard and it seemed as if there was no possible way of getting there...
You need to sit still and ask yourself where is the faith? Because at the end of the day ... that little ray of hope, that vision, that semi soft voice in your heart and that impossible fairy-tale when nurtured with faith will be the very thing that drives you to achieving what you need to become.
I want you to pledge with me that the only thing you will give up on this week is seeking and looking for the light when you yourself with God in your heart have all the needed equipment to BE the light.
"Sometimes we don't yet believe, because we are not yet ready to receive."
Grab this first day of the week with all that you have, shift your focus from finding the light to being light instead, and then the rest is promised to fall into place. Do not fold, do not give in and do NOT limit yourself to the light you need in order to grow but instead challenge yourself by using the potential and light you were given to shine out.
Play the hand that you were dealt... don't fold, don't fight it... accept where you are and shine your own light brightly towards where you are going.
