Feel the Music

Feel the Music

I posted this a few weeks ago and took it down.

It needed some thought and words placed before it, so here I sit making it right by re-posting.

In think like a Queen, (or King), I see her as fearless. She cannot afford to live in fear and neither can we even though the world today is driven by fear.

How high or low is your fear-o-meter?

This year I began working out.

It began with Yoga, then I added free weights and now I want a doorway pull up bar. I’ve worked on my inner strength and feel strong inside.

Now I want to be physically strong.

June is right around the corner and it’s time for the pull up bar. I doubt I can even do one, but there is always a starting point. Just like the free weights, I could barely do 10 curls to start with. I took that starting point of 10 and added a few more curls each time until 20 appeared and so on.

My year end goal is pull ups.

It’s something I’ve always wanted to do so there needs to be a starting point. Buy the bar, install it in the doorway and every time I approach that door, try a pull up. There’s no need for discouragement because it’s something new and there will be a learning curve. The key is to start.

Working on my physical strength this year does make me feel somewhat bulletproof, but let me encourage you with this. Spending time with God and strengthening His spirit within….well my darlings….we are bulletproof because of Him.

 

Letting Go · Quality of life

The Ignore Button

You can only ignore it for so long. That dream God puts in your heart. We put it off and tell ourselves, ‘One Day.’ We are good at ignoring what we want to do, versus what we need to do. This week in my world, I had to stop ignoring.

Recently, I did a post that made reference to doing what you love. We go through seasons and I went through a long season of survival. I was in survival mode for years. It was one of the most difficult times of my life. All it came down to was working jobs I didn’t enjoy, to make money to keep what I had. I couldn’t let go of what I had worked so hard for. It was a vicious cycle of work, eat and sometimes sleep. God has better in store if I would let go of what I had.

fearI am free. It was a gradual procession and not as painful as I believed it would be. To mentally let go of the house, cars, in ground pool, artwork, chandeliers, all these things I thought I had to have. There was so much stuff to take care of, I didn’t have time to care for me or my family.

You should know by now, I live a simple, yet beautiful life today. The old saying, ‘less is more’ holds true. I am free to do whatever I want, whenever God opens the door. Being willing to walk through every door and see if it’s something that aligns with my dream. Willingness is key.

Being willing to move when God says move. That is what clicked this this week. I’m a thinker and have been known to analyze every situation. Pick it apart so to speak. That is wanting to know the outcome first. Stepping into the unknown is a scary feeling and fear will set in to stop you. Face your fear. What scares you? Face it and get moving.

The great thing about dreams are they don’t go away. We leave our dreams, they don’t leave us. They will patiently wait on the sidelines until will take time for them. We are not promised tomorrow, so now is the time. Let go and go.
