GIVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT!

BE YOURSELF stand out from the crowd

did you ever feel alone in a room filled with people? or when there’s a party going on you may feel you’re on the outside looking in? what about not being picked on a sports team in school? maybe you were overlooked for a promotion? ever have days like that?
i know you may not believe it, but everyone experiences some form of rejection at least once in their lifetime…
and yes, it’s a painful feeling thinking no one cares about you or recognizes your gifts or talents.
but maybe this is not really rejection as you know it.
can you stop for a moment and consider it may not be others who are rejecting you , but maybe you’re rejecting yourself, simply by not seeing your “true” self-worth?
the truth my friend is , you have been duped! you have believed an age old lie……
you see, what’s behind all of this rejection is fear ! fear lies and tells you no one cares about you, you’re not good enough, you don’t fit in, you have no friends, you’re not pretty enough, talented enough……are you getting my point?
well it’s time to take that fear and turn it in for some good old fashioned truth!
don’t let fear whip you and tear you down……take that fear and make it bow it’s knee and come under subjection to the truth!!! want to know what the truth is? the truth is that you are worthy to be a vital part of life and you were called to be planted in a strategic place… did you know you are worth more than silver or gold in the eyes of your creator? anything other than that is a nasty lie….
listen, we all have areas that need work, but focusing on the down side only brings bad results! focus on the good things about yourself!
see yourself as one who’s a victor! one who can take on a challenge and jump over it like deer who’s feet can take them through rocky mountains!
come on, we all face challenges in life, why not refocus and see yourself as the one who wins instead of loses? you can do it!! anyone can, you just have to decide you want to sprint to the finish line! remember, if you’re going to run the race, it’s just a matter of giving it your best shot……that’s what really counts. truth be told, we’re all winners to someone!
so why not take a stand and see yourself strong and courageous? just look fear and rejection in the eye and tell them they have to find another resting place because you’re evicting them!!! hang up the“no vacancy”sign and tell those losers you’ve just rented the room to a winner!!!
oh! one last thing, don’t forget to thank your creator for who you are and how you were made, after all, you’re perfect in the sight of the master potter……so seriously ask yourself, who’s opinion really matters most? doesn’t the potter love his creation more than anything? then, why not take his hand and celebrate with him and be happy for who you were created to be?
come on…….let’s turn up the music and do the victory dance together!

peace out

WHEN THE ESCAPE KEY DOESN’T WORK…

i keep hitting escape but i'm still herei’ll try to keep this one short…lol…

did you ever experience those times when you wish you could just hit the escape key and say “beam me up Scottie”

i’m sure everyone feels that way at times…but if i’ve learned anything in those times, it’s this

life isn’t for sissies…it’s not for quitters…there’s no easy way out…you have to be tough to go through life…you have to decide you’re going to push and push and push…(yeah, sometimes you have to lay down and rest) but then you have to get up and push again, and again until you push through

the truth is, we will always have circumstances in our lives to frustrate us or torment us, but if we want to see it change,we have to push enough to prove to ourselves we have what we need to make it through. and again, the truth IS we WILL make it, in spite of what those little voices in our head tries to tell us!

so, put on your big girl panties and get ready to PUSH back when those frustrating times come, and PUSH and PUSH until you get the right results…don’t quit…EVER…and don’t give in to those lying thoughts…take every ounce of strength you have and remember to PUSH…

life may seem impossible and hard at times, but we have a GOD of the IMPOSSIBLE, and He will help us PUSH until we see the victory

so, just do it! i know you’ll be happy you did 🙂

JUST BE YOURSELF!!

ALWAYS B A FIRST RATE VERSION OF URSELF INSTEAD OF 2nd RATE VERSION OF SOME 1 ELSEmany times we look at others wishing we were more like them…it doesn’t matter who you might secretly desire to be, what matters most is asking yourself, “why do you want to be them“?

ask yourself that question and see what you come up with…you may find that all the things you think that other person has is not all it’s cracked up to be! 

you know the old saying, the grass always looks greener on the other side? well, that holds true for everything…think for a  moment, do you really know what they’re like, OR what they’ve been through!

so HERE’S  the bottom line, don’t envy another’s characteristics, outward appearance, career, etc., you get the picture?

stop looking so hard at someone else, and look inside you!! did you ever ask your Creator to show you who you are? hmmmm, there’s something to ponder!  well, why don’t you do that! you may be surprised at what you see looking through His eyes! 

remember, God never makes mistakes, AND He never makes things He doesn’t love…so the truth is, you were made perfect, not a thing missing or lacking…learn to love who you are, because He made you unique, there’s no one else like  you, or can do what you were created to do…sooooooooo, how about it? can you learn to love YOU the way HE LOVES YOU? 

go ahead, try it, you may be delighted in yourself just as He delights in you!! can you dare to see yourself beautiful, complete and perfect? sure you can…just ask Him, and remember, He’s in the business of creating masterpieces…so don’t try to be someone else when you’re a treasure made by your Master! 

peace out!

YOU’RE UNIQUE, CAN YOU LIVE WITH THAT?

i've often wondered about the uniqueness of some people...i've wondered about people's opinions being so critical and even unjust in their evaluation of what being unique is and sometimes labeling it "weird".  i'm here to say, don't you think it's time we begin to value the uniqueness of others and even ourselves? i've come to a place in my life where i've decided i'm going to celebrate my "uniqueness" and be comfy in my own skin, in spite of what others may label me!  to some i'm quirky, to others eccentric, and to a few, plain old weird...but it's time for me to stand with who i am and declare, i am created by one who has a unique way of thinking and creating things, unlike any human i've ever known... if He indeed has created me with these little oddities, who am i to argue?  yes, i am different in many ways (others may suggest), but again "i am who i am" and "it is what it is"... though i may be scoffed at by some, others have embraced my unique way of thinking and creating, and i'm good with that...in the meantime while others teeter on what they think of me, i have decided i am celebrating me and enjoying the ride!  does anyone want to join me? i welcome and double dog dare you to be who you were created to be!! any takers?

i’ve often wondered about the uniqueness of some people…i’ve  also wondered about people’s opinions being so critical and even unjust in their evaluation of what being unique is and sometimes labeling it as “weird”.
so, i’m here to ask if you  think it’s time we begin to value the uniqueness of others and even ourselves?
i’ve come to a place in my life where i’ve decided i’m going to celebrate my “uniqueness” and be comfy in my own skin, in spite of what others may label me!
to some i’m quirky, to others eccentric, and to a few, plain old weird, some have suggested i’m the whole box of crayons! but i’ve realized, it’s time for me to stand for who i am and declare, i am created by the One who has a unique way of thinking and creating things, unlike any human i’ve ever known…
if He indeed has created me with these little oddities, who am i to argue?
yes, i’m different in many ways ( as others may suggest), but again “i am who i am” and “it is what it is”…
though some may scoff, others have embraced my unique way of thinking and creating, and i do delight in that…in the meantime while others teeter on what they think of me, i have decided to celebrate me and my freedom and make it a wild, enjoyable ride!
does anyone want to join me?
i welcome you and double dog dare you to give it a try and believe in who you were created to be!! do i have any takers?
