Take A Step in a New Direction

There are some words we need to be careful using–> can’t & never are two. We sometimes don’t realize how these words keep us stuck in life & love. We allow ourselves to remain where we are even though we are hurting, where we are. I am not talking about where we are as in our locations. I mean our overall positioning–relationships, jobs, our hearts, minds, & souls. We love hard. Yet fear keeps us inside this tiny box. Fear brings anger. It brings misery, helplessness & hoplessness. But our biggest enemy is not always the next person. Our ‘hater’ is not always the person you had an argument with or the person that lied on you or backstabbed you. Sometimes we are our own enemies & haters. Yes, we are because we let our pride and/or our ‘nevers’ & ‘can’ts’ stand in the way of our happiness & simply taking a risk. Risks are scary. But what is life without adventure? What is life without doing something you never have before? What is life without the one you love when you are broken and all you need to do is to take a step in a new direction? Love, true love, is priceless. God is love. Therefore, anything dealing with love, love that is morally right, He is cheering you on. Fear, never, & can’t are of the devil. He is glad when those things keep us stuck in our tracks. Confusion is of satan too. Let God guide your mind. Ask for discernment & guidance as you go after what you truly want. It is not about appearing weak. You know your strength & worth. It is all about love & happiness! Dreams happen for a reason. People enter your life for a reason. Arguments happen for a reason. Even when doors shut in your face, it is for a reason. It is okay to become transparent. Sometimes it is perfect to be transparent. It does not make you less of who you are. It is just that your happiness is worth stepping outside of the box.
