Believe In Yourself

Sometimes Pandora will shuffle and land on a song that reminds me of you. Of summer. Of New York City. All combined into a perfect little memory of moments where I felt so happy. So free. So fun.

But that’s not really what I want to talk about.

I want to talk about believing in yourself.
Standing on your own side no matter what.
Ignoring what anyone thinks of you and focusing on what you think of you, and making it be the best thoughts you can possibly think of.

Change the narrative.
Empower yourself.
Cheer yourself on.

Be like an obsessively loving parent who leaves sweet notes in your lunch box and cuts the crusts off your sandwiches in the shape of a heart.

If you feel like giving up but you know this path is what you really want then push yourself a little harder. A little further. A little longer.

Take breaks when needed. Come back to it when you’re rested.

Remember not to take life too seriously. Have more fun. Laugh more. Don’t rush. Breathe. Trust.

Be on your own side.

“I sent you a rowboat and a motorboat and a helicopter, what more did you expect?” -God

help

Have I been too busy in my own head that I’m missing  the obvious support being offered to me?

There is a story about a man who drowned because he was waiting for God to save him. He denied the help of the row boat, helicopter, and motorboat that all showed up in attempt to get him out of his predicament. He couldn’t see that right before him lied the answers to his prayer.

There is currently an opportunity being presented to me but part of me is resistant. A part of me wants to say no. Because part of me wants to move in a different direction. 

Am I saying no to the rowboat? 

I don’t know.

“What if I’m wasting my time?”
“Should I be applying my time into what I really rather do instead?”
“What if saying no is me missing out on an opportunity that can really improve my life?”
“Why am I so hesitant?”

What if…
Should I…
Why this, why that…

Oh, the good ol’ games we play in our minds.
