We have one life. Some of us spend that in the shadow of others. Some of us never dare to spread our wings wide and fly. Some of us never dare to be who we are deep down inside where we love, mourn, dream and ache to find acceptance more than we dare confess to anyone. Yet, there are others out there LIVING their own life, without being held back by what others think, fear of being themselves, or anything in the like, as we less confident types are. I want to be one of those who LIVE THEIR LIFE!
One life. That's all we get. Every morning we have the opportunity to be who we are, to reach for a dream, to decide what we want and form a plan how to get it. One life... many chances. Personally, I'm tired of watching yet another day pass by looking pretty much like the last one.
I want something different. Something that suits me. Something that gets me out of this slump. Something that's fun... SO, as crazy as it may seem to whoever sits here judging me for not being like them, and with this new awareness that I DO have the power to recreate myself AND it's ok to be whatever 'self' I want to be (with love as its foundation) I'm going to recreate myself - daily! :D I'm actually excited about this.
Tomorrow - Christmas Eve - I'm recreating myself as Super Housekeeper and getting my house straightened! On Christmas Day I'm aiming for Super Mum! :D Another day I'll be Super Chef and prepare meals and treats I've never made before. On another Super Writer while putting other things on hold. I can Super Photographer, Super Hiker, Super Friend... and so on. Whatever I want, I can be.
Ok, so I may never be Superman ;) or Super Golfer, or Superstar - but these aren't things I want, anyway. I also am not so foolish to aim for things I know I couldn't do - such as Super Prime Minister of Australia! :) Rather, I'm looking into MY heart for the person I want to be, using the talents I possess, and designing my days around those.
I love to write... I love to take photos... I love this, that and a few other things... but while being in a slump, I seem to have lost heart, or passion, towards these things. I've repeatedly tried to do well in these areas, but I easily slip back into my day-to-day rut again - usually when I lose confidence. However, with this sense of excitement that came with a greater awareness of having the power to recreate myself in any way I want, I've found a new wave of passion. And that, with this sense of joy rising within me, I'm gonna do this... and I am choosing not to bow to the judgement of others.
I have the power I need to do this. And I refuse to give that power to anyone else, to fear, or to anything else that would work to stop me. I consider this a gift from God Himself and I'm going to accept it. It's mine... Wish me luck! ;)
If you're caught in a slump, if you've been too insecure to live your own life, or if you simply wish to find a new dream, can I invite you to rise tomorrow to use the power you've been given to recreate yourself any way you want. Plan it tonight. Do it tomorrow.
One last thing: I actually like the thought of recreating myself daily, because I don't want to be Super Housekeeper every single day. There's other things in this world I want to do... and, honestly, the thought of focusing on housework so much every single day would drive me nuts and push me deeper into the slump that's been threatening to consume me for awhile now. But, at the same time, I believe that I will grow in confidence in all things I do, and they will form together to help me rise up in boldness to be me and not stumble over the fear of what others may think...
Anyway... :) I've rattled on long enough. I've got tomorrow's duties to plan... even to the point of what I'll wear as Super housekeeper! :D
Ok... ok... I know this sounds nuts. But it's fun! Seriously! :D I'm turning it into a game, and I'm gonna enjoy it!!!! And I can end it any time I want. :) I just love the freedom I have in this. And THAT, I believe, is what blesses me the most! :D
Back soon to let you know how I do... :)
If I don't see you before, with ALL my heart I wish you and your loved ones the most merry and blessed Christmas and New Year...
PS. I'm getting weary of this Weebly site, because of the way it cuts off the ends of my blogs, so I may have to recreate my website elsewhere! :)
Maybe I should stick a photo here to see if that stops Weebly from cutting the ends of my blogs off! :)
