Motivation for Perspective: Go Getter Monday

This week, should anything less than stellar or progressive take place, not only will we not fall, but we shall not break nor stray off course.

We are in the Steel Legged Stance.

The position one takes when something attempts to move you off your focus, your promise.

When trouble, disappointment or bad news attempts to sway us from what we claim, We Will Get To Work.

We will get to work reaffirming the promise, doing the exact opposite of what fear wants us to do: give up.

We believe in ourselves and we believe in our ability to will what we desire, through energy and work.

So this week and each following week, after you rise and give reference: get in your Steel Legged Stance.

And be not moved by what you see, but by what is promised.

Here’s to a week of claimed victories.

The Switch Up Gave Way to the Prepared Table

Social media has warped us and how we perceive what the “come up” looks like.

We have become a generation obsessed with proving other people wrong and using our growth as a visual revenge on others who did not see the promise.

When the truth is this: people must play specific roles in our lives, in order for each of us to elevate from one level to the next.

If no one ever switched up on you, you’d never know how important it is to guard your heart and be intentional in the company you keep, which in turn means you wouldn’t have that job, partner, friends, child…etc.

If no one ever made you feel less than loved, you wouldn’t have sought out love and discovered the love you have for yourself and inspired others to do the same.

If no one had broken promises, you wouldn’t be a person who moves with a plan and is dependable.

God prepares the table, not for us to stunt, but for us to show how even with scraps, we can have a full course meal. It may take a minute to cover the table, but that’s in part to our perception.

We have the power to feed others through the evolution of our trials! Folks can pull up seats to our table and feast off what we’ve been through, endured, learned and ultimately gained.

So, the next you wanna stunt for the haters, don’t. For you would be taking away from the feast. In stead show gratitude for the role they played, for without them…things might not be as sweet.

Often, we look for our blessings to be manifestations of material things, because a lot of us were raised to believe goodness takes shape in tangible form.

However, through living our lives we come to realize at some point, hopefully, that our most cherished moments take place through healing and self realization.

Peace. Love. Hope. Understanding.

These are all blessed gifts that come to comfort us in times of storms, trepidation and loneliness.

We gather ourselves, because we know how to comfort our wounds. Not to say we don’t falter and revert back to non-serving habits: self pity, fear and doubt, however we are aware enough to recognize we are digressing and courageous enough to turn the narrative around for our good.

Nothing which attempts to bind us in despair shall last when we seek to persevere and overcome.

We only lack when we believe we lack.

We only remain fearful we choose to believe in the fear.

We are only lonely when we believe loneliness is our only option.

Reaffirming who we are through our gifts of peace, hope, understanding and love, joins us to our inner spirit which holds the power to bring us through any and all darkness.

My thought and prayer for us this week, is that we daily seek power in the words we speak and the thoughts we choose to focus on.

When we find ourselves not promoting our light, we quickly change the narrative and shift the direction of our energy.

We deserve the very best, no ifs ands or buts about it.

However we must first begin that with and within ourselves.

This season is all about expectancy, what are you claiming for yours?

In my experience, choosing to be happy in everything one does, has proven to be a journey riddled with constant obstacles and setbacks…and I thought from my bubble of creativity laden free spirit wonder, that love is all you need.

Love, however powerful and reassuring, is definitely not all one needs. You need courage to step fully on the promises you seek. You need faith to continuously push beyond the boundaries set and you need prayer to communicate that which is not relatable in this realm, yet understood spiritually.

Life does not hand you what you want, instead it leads you through to where you are purposed to be. Whether you fight against the current, exalting your energy in a manner that leaves you worn or you fully lay into the groove of the frequency and surrender your will of control; you still have choices.

And while I have interchanged my position on how I flow, I am learning when to hold on and when to relinquish the reigns. Because sometimes my grip is in laced so heavily in fear, all my strength goes into my grasp; be it mental or physical, when in fact it should be a spiritual grasp for peace that surpasses all understanding.

This is the time for me to simply focus on me. Not what others think I should be doing or have or be…but where is the flow leading me and do I have the courage, faith and prayer life to withstand the journey? Because in the end, I know where I will end up, due to my stated and visualized affirmation: HAPPY.

So why should I fret? Why should I grow weary with worry and doubt, when I state what I will into my life?

Hold on to the peace and ride the frequency.

Have you ever experienced a time in your life, when all cylinders were in sync and operating at their highest level?

You felt like every thing was in its proper place and you were safeguarded from foul play; in essence, life was damn good!

And we cherish those moments…but here is something I want you and I to pay close attention to:

Are we living in the past or are we gaining faith from our previous greatness, that it will return to us once again?

Last year my life was quite a fairytale. I was taking numerous trips, coloring my hair for the first time 😊, traveling often, pampering myself regularly, purchased a new vehicle (against my will, but glad I did) and enjoying my singlehood.

And then out of nowhere, I found myself unemployed and no energy to accept that my lifestyle was changing. I was not ready to let go of what I had always wanted to obtain, and now within a matter of weeks, my department went from hopeful talks to teary-eyed meetings filled with “I’m sorry this is happening.”

I was in shock, I honestly loved my work and felt fulfilled in my position. The connections I made with my youth, teachers and community partners all swirled around in my mind as I begin to make preparations to say goodbye.

How could God place me here for only a short time? Why would the Universe uplift me only to bring me low and feeling meek and defeated? Why am I once again fighting for survival and not thriving?

I sunk into a depression that even now I am not 100% sure I have fully stepped out of. But I am here, each day I am given, to rise to the challenge; seeking and expecting better than even my last year, which in truth was beyond what I prayed and hoped for.

I remember the time before that magical year and how I fought to maintain all I had and when things changed for me, I tried hard to remain grateful…but here’s what I am willing to admit to today: I didn’t set aside time solely to say Thank You.

I did not devote myself to prayer or building a continued spiritual connection. I was too busy enjoying the harvest to give thanks first.

Which is why, even when I win a battle, survive a storm, am able to smile through my tears, I give reference to God for it all. I’ve learned that even in our mess, asking for Forgiveness and being truthful, God can do way more with that than God can with unacknowledged faults.

So, while I still am not where I’ve asked the Universe to send me, I give thanks that this path I am currently on, is leading me where I need to be. The journey never looks like the destination…and I’m sure the reason is that we don’t become complacent and comfortable along the way.

The Universe has to shake it up a bit to keep us focus in our faith and connected to the spirit. No days off from gratitude.

You can either sulk your way through it or find happiness in each day until you are where you want to be.

A step forward is another step closer and that is definitely something to be grateful for.

Look back over your course, meditate on those moments you fought for that turned into victorious battles won; you thrived, you lived and you achieved so much…it will come again and this time you will understand how to sustain it.

Remain faithful to the process and know that things are working together for your good.

You will have everything you remain open for.

Believe.

The breakthrough has occurred but the prayer life needs to also take on a breakthrough as well.

In this season of elevating beyond where we were, we will not put down the essential tools which got us through.

The same reverent prayers we prayed, we will continue to pray, with much more conviction for we know that prayer does great works for not only what we physically see, but what we spiritually feel.

You want to honor and show gratitude?

Continue to pray and show reference.

Its not that we believe the Universe is at work, we know.

Doing the work can show up in a multitude of ways.

It isn’t always financial or materialistic, sometimes it manifests in ways where you realize things you once were not qualified to do, you now can, because you resisted temptations and disciplined yourself.

You decided that what lies a head is worth more than momentary pleasures, good times and temporal escapes.

Be humbled by the work of faith, prayer and consistency.

Do you know how blessed you are to overcome obstacles? struggles? temptations? strongholds?

It ain’t easy baby!

And look at you, flourishing! Thriving! Living an improved life.

Celebrate the things you don’t do anymore, with the mindset of how many new doors have opened because of it.

You are amazingly blessed!

The hardest part of the journey is attempting those things you seamlessly did before when life was consistently turning up roses, as suppose to when you’re having to plant and await the harvest.

Go forth with your bag anyway!

Expecting to reap great benefits and I am willing to proclaim that you won’t have enough room in your bag to receive it all.

You’ll have to pick and choose from all you planted in faith.

It’s such a blessing to go from one stage to another; one where you were hoping to be chosen and now you’re the chooser!

Take the leap and go forth, ready to receive.
