Letting go, is definitely one of the hardest things we seem to go through as human beings. Well at least in our minds. it’s hard. But sometimes we feel inclined to give people, places, or things the time and space the no longer deserve. We all have these true genuine desires to be happy and to follow are callings. But when you stop living for others and when will YOUR life begin?
I know that this is a tough subject for many. And some refuse to believe that anything can genuinely be a waste of time and space (lol). But in reality, everything happens for a reason. We invest our time in jobs, people and situations that honestly, we should have BEEN let go.
Now, I am FAR from perfect but I am a Consistent work in progress. I can honeslty say that I have learned that not any and everything deserves all of the time in the world. Sometimes we are too nice or too lenient to the things in our lives that truly deserve the boot. Do you want to be happy? or would you prefer to just live the life everyone else expects of you?
I can truly say that “finding myself” included “finding my faith”. When I say that it has been a journey in itself. It has been. And in reality it has been a crazy ride. I have prayed over EVERY area of my life. Daily. Nightly. Whenever I had weak moments, whenever I was happy. All of that. It taught me to be grateful, and thankful in all circumstances. Struggling or not.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” [Matthew 6:33 (KJVA)]
This in itself was EVERY reason why I had to except that I had wasted time doing things that were not going to add any value or substance to my life. I had true goals, dreams and desires. BUT it took me to hit rock bottom to find out what my soul’s purpose in life was. And finally I did. I went against the grain, and started living. MY. LIFE!!!
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”[Proverbs 3:5 (KJV)]
I live by that. In reality, every night, I pray that God guides every aspect of my life and that I want to continue building my relationship/faith with God. Over the last year, I have watched my friends disappear. One by one, something would happen and they would fall of the side of the world. I couldn’t be upset that God was giving me what I wanted. I asked for my life to be cleansed of those that didn’t belong in my life anymore. And once those people started disappearing I realized that life will be mine one day.
I am finally on the right path to becoming the woman I want to be, building the brand that I have dreamed of and reaching my dreams of one day helping and impacting the lives of many children.
Letting go, doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You could be leaving an old job for a newer one. Sometimes, you have to let go of old friends and find new ones that share your mindset. You don’t have to settle for anything in this lifetime. The world is yours. Enjoy it.
