Have you ever found yourself struggling to be yourself, think your own thoughts or voice your own opinion?
I have! I spent years worrying that what I thought or felt would be wrong so instead of sharing I kept a lot of ideas and thoughts to myself. I let doubt and fear hold me back. I shouldn’t have though.
What I have since realized is that God has created each of us to be unique on purpose and it’s when people like you and I have the confidence and boldness to share who we really are that incredible things can happen.
We don’t have to feel as if we need to continually re-invent the wheel, but adding your own spokes and rims sure could make your wheel look different and stand out from all the rest.
Be who you are and be confident in your own thoughts and opinions. The world needs you. I need you. God created you with your unique gifts, talents and strengths for a reason. You have them so that you can share them and inspire, strengthen and bless others just by being you.
Imagine a world where no one was afraid of what others might think and no one was concerned abut keeping up with the Jones’s or anyone else for that matter. Imagine if you didn’t let fear or doubt hold you back, but you let the world into your thoughts and ideas.
Everyone FEELS doubt and fear, but those that don’t let it control them are the ones who make a difference.
Just imagine what a difference you can make when you own who you are and decide to go with it no matter how afraid you feel….
Now, go with it!
The world is waiting for you!
That’s my two cents for the day.
