God First Always & Happy Monday, folks!
So here it is, the day before Election Day 2016! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been over the election for at least a month! I’m not here to preach to you about one candidate or the other, shoulda been my friend on FB for the past 9 months for that lol. Please, vote your conscience and please VOTE.
Ok – so moving right along! How was your weekend? What did you do over the weekend? Anything exciting? Binge on Netflix?
Over the past three months of Monday Motivations, I’ve described certain elements of the journey I’ve been on…it’s been interesting to say the least. We at the MoneyGraphics home had a rough ending to a long week. And I’m ok with that, because each day is a new beginning to do something truly amazing. And today is a new week to take on and tackle.
Saturday morning I woke up around 6am and got myself together to embark upon a 6.5 hour road trip to Memphis for a wedding. I decided to take the road less traveled, as I love to do. You see, I’m a driver. I love to drive. I’d love to drive across the country! There’s something peaceful about being in the car alone with just me, my thoughts and God. Things suddenly become clear that were once foggy and this trip to Memphis was no different.
I know when I get in that car that something is going to happen that’s going to give me this moment of “AHHHHHH HA!” I never know what it’s going to be, I just know it’s going to be there. I have this moment before I go anywhere for a drive, and I pray, “Ok God, whatever your will is for me, let me be a channel of your Divine Love.” <– I know I’ve told you this prayer a million times lol But that’s my life prayer. That’s my everyday prayer, because I believe that when I walk in HIS purpose for me, that I will collide with destiny.
As I was driving down 63 highway south about 2 hours from Columbia – I collided with Destiny here:
This photo of this sunrise is simply insulting lol. The fog was raising from the valley below to collide with the sun and crazy beautiful sky….The only thing I could think of when I saw this was: LOOK AT GOD!!! YOU CAN’T TELL ME GOD DOESN’T HAVE A PURPOSE FOR ME!!!!
You can try, hell, the devil tries every day to get me out of my faith of walking in my purpose, but if the devil can’t do it — you best believe no one else can. You see my faith and my purpose is beyond what anyone can imagine, myself included.
Have you ever seen the movie or tv show called “Limitless” – where the main character takes a pill that allows them to use 100% of their brain and they can do these amazing things?
Well, that’s how my purpose works in me. You see, I wake up everyday and take a “pill” of faith in my purpose and what I can accomplish becomes LIMITLESS. I sincerely believe that as long as I have the faith of a mustard seed, that God will continue to clear the path for my higher purpose. I’ve believed now for at least the last 4 years that MoneyGraphics is simply a means to my high purpose. I don’t even know what my ultimate purpose is, but I have the FAITH that God is going to be good to me as long as I am good to Him.
When I stopped at this lookout location and saw this mighty sunrise, I took a moment to myself to just take-in the energy of greatness, and encourage myself that I am indeed, a vessel for greatness!
I have always battled with feeling worthy of others. I’ve never felt worthy of applause, never felt worthy of gratitude or appreciation. I’ve always battled with whether or not I was good enough for this, or good enough for that…
Somewhere in the last few years, I stopped giving any f*cks about what other people thought – b/c I realized that my daughter’s emotional and psychological well-being depended on it!! Do I feel worthy? Eh, not so much – but I consistently tell myself, “You ARE worthy! You ARE awesome! You ARE EXACTLY WHAT GOD HAS INTENDED FOR YOU TO BE AT THIS MOMENT.” – It also helps I have a group of friends that are my positive warriors. They pray with me, encourage me, and tell me “YOU ARE WORTHY.” (Surround yourself with these types, they are a sincere necessity in life).
The older my daughter gets the more I see how much she is like me in a LOT of ways – but she’s still herself. I never want to take that away from her. I have to encourage her to be the best version of herself and do so without apologizing to anyone. As long as who you are doesn’t hurt anyone else, you’re gonna be alright.
When I stumbled upon that amazing sunrise, I thought about her while I was listening to Kehlani’s CRZY – I turned this record up LOUD, blastin’ that sh*t as I watched the sunrise and I realized it was time for me to teach her that we take NO SHIT FROM NO ONE – b/c NO ONE CAN STOP YOU FROM LIVING IN YOUR PURPOSE! Sometimes we make concessions, sometimes we step aside and allow other people to shine, but we are done allowing the success of others be at our expense.
I’m over being censored ladies & gentlemen. DO YOU BOO!
AND THAT IS WHAT I’M HERE TO TELL YOU TODAY!
DO YOU BOO! Live in that purpose of yours and apologize to NO ONE (as long as you don’t hurt other people in the process). You see living in your purpose is yours & no one else’s.
I encourage you today to have the courage to be yourself WITHOUT the fear of others. If God had created us to be just like each other, he would have done that. We’re not cookie cutter replicas of one another.
If no one has told you lately – or ever for that matter – YOU ARE WORTHY. YOU ARE AWESOME. YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH (and in many cases – you are BETTER than your current situation).
WAKE UP!!! IT’S MONDAY!!!! GO BE AMAZINGLY AWESOME, YOU DESERVE IT!
See you next week <3
