"...There has just got to be more! Life isn't meant to feel like this, I'M not meant to feel like this! I AM too great to just settle. I AM too talented to be trapped in this life. I AM meant to close this chapter..... but how?"
My journal entry I wrote to myself on that teary, yet liberating day reads of the woman I knew was inside, but hadn't fully embraced yet.
I read it every now and then when I'm feeling lost to remind me of how far I have come in just a few short years.
Those 3 years ago I found myself balling my eyes out as I tried to finish the never-ending pile of laundry and listening to Oprah....I finally knew in my heart that it was time for the change I'd been dreading and secretly wishing for.
::I needed to tell my husband that I wanted a divorce.
::I couldn't live in this place of constant anxiety anymore!
::I couldn't stand being this shell of a mom who couldn't even enjoy her children!
::I couldn't bear the thought of never getting to accomplish the big dreams I had or helping the people I felt called to help with my gifts!
I was listening to a Super Soul Sunday, and all I can remember is that every word that came out of the guests mouth hit me straight in my heart.
I was the only one who could take my life back!
I had to step out of my "comfortable" life in faith!
I needed to share my gift with the world or it would haunt me with regret for the rest of my life.
So I did it.
It wasn't easy.
It wasn't pretty.
It was actually WAY harder than I had imagined.
I was free to finally find and live in my POWER!! To start the uphill journey to truly finding myself and becoming the thought leader I always knew that I was.
“Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.” — Esther 4:14
I challenge you to step out in faith today, and fight for your dreams! This world is in need of your leadership. Your words, and your thoughts, were meant to be spoken in order to fulfill the calling that God has over your life.
