How are you are going to change what you do if you don’t change who you are? I honestly don’t believe that’s possible or realistic. I am a woman of God and a believer in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ his son. 2 Corinthians 5:17 states “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” KJV. Amen! Isnt that such a relief to your spirit?
Maybe you don’t feel like you need or want to change who you are. If this is you I ask you to evaluate your life with an honest eye. Is there anything that you would like to change? Social Status? Relationship with your significant other? Career? Children? Parents? Friends? Family? Baby Mama? Baby Daddy? Your looks? Your body? Your attitude? The list goes on and on. If you can say yes, then you have room for improvement and most importantly you have room for redefinition.
Redefining yourself isn’t changing everything about you. I see redefining yourself as the opportunity to be that woman you have always desired to be. Go back and think about the dreams that you had when you were 5 years old and your imagination was fresh and un corrupted. Allow yourself to be childlike sometimes. There is a refreshing feeling in imagination. Allow yourself to be creative. Make the time to read that book or paint that desire in your heart.
Redefining yourself allows you to love like you did before you were ever heartbroken. To embrace new people with open arms and love like you did before rejection. To pray for people you love and people you don’t like. You are allowing and teaching yourself how to be free. Your allowing yourself to be the person you were before the world started to abuse you. Dream like you did before your dreams were murdered. Forgive and forget like you did before your forgiveness was vandalized. Pray like you did before sin. Have faith in the Lord like you never have. All of these things are realistic expectations for your life.
Redefining yourself give you the freedom we all desire. Free yourself from stress and worry and replace that with prayer and knowing. I recently heard an interview with Oprah and Curtiss ’50 cent’ Jackson. Curtiss said to Oprah “I either pray or worry. I never do both”. This is one of the smartest quotes I have heard in a long time. If you have already asked God for something he has heard you and he will do it on his time. The best time.
Break yourself free of other people’s assumptions and past experiences with you and start to become that woman who you want to be. Please do not limit yourself for one more day. Smile everywhere you go, and show love to every person you see. Pray and ask God for the needs in your heart and belive and know that it has been done. Be confident. Be strong. Hold your head high. Keep your smile on bright.
Love & Blessings,
