I can not begin to explain how good it feels to be back! I took 2 months off from posting due to a few personal issues. That was one of the hardest things for me to do. Writing is not only my gift, it is my passion! Two weeks ago I started back posting to my blog and it is so amazing. Over the last few weeks I have been shown a lot! I have seen my business grow and I have seen growth in my circle. I am no longer discouraged by the slow progress. I am actually excited to be present in the growth.
It has taken time to get to this place that I am currently at and to see things thee way that I do. For so long I was feeling as if I was pursuing writing at the wrong time. I felt that I was taking a leap into something that I know I can be successful in, but had no idea how to achieve that success. My plan was not working out the way that I envisioned and I was drowning in my purpose. The small break that I was forced to take revealed so much. I have learned a lot of lessons to say the least.
One of the main lessons that I learned was that I was given a gift for a reason. I had to realize that my gift was not given to me so that I could second guess it. I was given a gift to ignite change. The more that I ran from my gift the more I was drawn into it. When doubt tried to creep in, confirmation showed up and scared doubt away.
The break that I took showed me that I am needed. My gift is not only for me but for others as well. I speak words that escape the lips of others. I think thoughts that never enter the mind of others. I write pages that others only read about. I am different from most people and I am thankful for that. My perspective changed and I am able to see things with clear eyes.
My confidence has been boosted and my responsibility has increased. I am no longer going to allow myself to second guess the gift that I was given. No longer am I going to allow others to validate my worth in this field. I have made the decision to live in purpose and on purpose. I have seen the presence that my gift contains. When I give in to my gift, my gift gives to me. My gift has changed my life and I am certain that as I continue to learn and grow, my gift will change the lives of others.
