I sat here today looking at the amazing beauty out my back door, the trees, the birds and so much more wondering how we got here. How did we get to a place where each day is filled with so much stress, fear and doubt of the unknown? Did we unconsciously choose our destination; did we knowingly choose where we are? Then one must ask do I want to stay in this place of stress, fear and doubt?
Then I came inside and picked up a popular woman’s magazine to flip through it relaxing and letting my mind go, when all I saw was ad after as telling me I am not enough. They told the reader I am not thin enough, pretty enough and on and on. Is this just adding to my stress, fear and doubt issues already clouding my mind?
Okay I figured I’d turn on a family oriented satellite channel to watch a popular family series showing real life families and their issues they deal with each of the 5 children. That was all fine until the commercials came on and they began to yell at me, since we know they turn up the volume on commercials to get your attention, again about how I am not enough.
I can only imagine a day when we turn on the television, watch a movie, read a magazine and so on we are find our selves being encouraged, built-up, edified and made to feel special. Why do we subject ourselves to this madness? Why do we allow this into our life? Are we searching for something of value in our life so desperately that we will turn anywhere to find it?
We need to stop the madness and find the things that will build us up verses tear us down. I believe we need to consciously choose what is good and right for each of us to grow and stop settling for what we are told we are to be. The amazing part of our journey called life is that we are equipped with everything we need to do what we desire to do. Just like the acorn that has everything in it to become an oak tree with the proper care, watering, nourishment and time. We must choose what we desire to focus on and nurture our mind and body, feed and allow yourself time to grow and become that mighty oak.
I can only imagine a day when none of this here on earth matters, a time when there will be peace instead of fear, joy instead of stress and doubt no longer is an issue in our minds. This day is coming and I can only imagine and wait with anticipation; however, while I must address what is real here and now I am standing up to say no more madness! Will you join me in this amazing stand to empower your life?
