A Made Up Mind

Leave a comment

I’ve made up my mind. I won’t press rewind. I’ve been down that road too many times. I’d start up the hill. Pedal to the floor. Then I’d lose my momentum ending further back than before. I’d pick up speed, then spread my wings. Run off the cliff to reach my dreams. But then I’d stare at other things. Like cars, gowns, phones, and rings. These were labelled the finer things. Before I realized it, I had lost my wings. Uninspired. Lost and tired. I’d look for someone to blame. To carry my guilt and shame. 

Success is not a stroll in the park. It won’t remain with just a spark. Drive is needed. Courage too. Patience is crucial in order to get through. I’m done chasing the get rich schemes. I’ve made up my mind to live out my dreams. I hope it helps someone along the way. I won’t press rewind; it’s time to press play.

there once was a little girl. who dreamed of impacting the world. but she didn't think she was brave enough. she thought she wasn't strong enough. didn't think she was even beautiful. one day she cried out to God in desperation. she wanted to feel loved and appreciated. God took her under His wings. changed her mindset and set her free from depression, anxiety, thoughts of suicide, and low self-esteem. she blossomed into a beautiful, courageous, confident woman. her gifts have opened doors and motivated others. her life never was the same. she is still blooming and I am she!
