Maybe, like me, you are starting over…reinventing yourself…and making drastic changes in your life and affairs.
It can feel so scary to be in an unfamiliar place where all you really have to rely on is the power of faith and the strength of your vision.
Maybe you are starting over because your old job went away, you are downsizing or a relationship came to an end.
Whatever the reason, you may come to a place where you just feel like saying, “Forget it! This is just too hard and I don’t want to do it anymore!”
I must feel like this at least once a day on a slow day!
So I want to share some things that have kept me from walking away from the path that I have chosen for myself.
- Know the difference between “giving up” and “letting go”
Be willing to release all the things that you thought you knew about yourself and your life. Doing this creates room for God to create a new script for you and your life.
- Practice Moment-By-Moment Surrender
Surrender all struggle, despair and hopelessness. Surrender all fear, doubt and unbelief. Do it moment-by-moment!Surrender in those tearful moments when you might be on the floor in a heap praying for the strength to hold on just one more day…then…get off the floor, wipe your tears, wash your face and reach for a feeling of gratitude.
- Live in Gratitude
Focus on your blessings and not on what you think is missing! When you feel despair come calling ask yourself what you are most grateful for. Reach for gratitude constantly! Become a gratitude addict! Gratitude instantly raises your vibration.
- Remember to Breathe
When you are in fear you are not breathing deeply. A good cleansing deep breath brings oxygen to the brain and gets the flow of energy moving. When you breathe deeply and slowly you don’t feel stuck. You start to feel like you have the power to keep going.
- Let it Flow
Whatever you are sharing and giving to the world, keep sharing and giving to the world. If you are a writer, keep writing. If you sing, keep singing, If you are an artist, keep creating!
As you allow your gift to flow from the loving place of your I AM Presence and from the Joyful Soul of your Being…you are bringing it into perfection!
A quote from Manifesting Victory,
“Don’t think you must stop, because what you expressed isn’t accepted (or noticed) by the outer world! Don’t mind that, but just let it flow! Just let it keep flowing and all of a sudden, when it strikes a certain vibratory action, the whole world will accept it!”
God does have a plan for you and whether you know it or not…you’re living it!
Persistence is needed. Persistence is the steady adherance to a course of action!
Courage is needed. Courage is feeling the fear and doing it anyway!
Love will guide you and carry you when necessary!
Don’t ever, ever, ever give up!
