HAPPY FRIDAY

Man, what a week. There’s been so many signs telling me to make some changes in my life. And I think it’s caused me to be an emotional wreck. Though, there’s been some good layers that needed “peeling.”

I’m fearful. Confused. Stressed. Why? I guess we always want a guarantee on our decisions. That if we make a mistake things will be quickly fixed. And when the fixes aren’t quick, then we second guess or it’s not how we thought things were going to go. But that’s not life is it?! Life is FULL of complications. Full of change. Change that you don’t want. Full on up and down. But going through these changes and how we build our character and how we learn, that’s what defines ourselves isn’t it.

So, what do I have to lose? That’s what I keep telling myself. A LOT. If I continue to keep things the same. One of my biggest fears already happened. That Tim’s life was taken too young. Sooo… how bad can the rest of my fears of change be?

But what I read and learned this week has been powerful. That I have to let go and just trust in HIM. That if I listen to all these signs that God and the universe have been sprinkling, and give it my full heart, that’s what God is guiding me towards. To let go of those fears that the other bad guys wants— the misconceptions, the fears, the evil— that’s trying to interrupt and sidetrack what God and my heart wants. And it’s all gonna work out. It always does.

Cuz living ain’t living when you’re full of all these fears controlling your life. So here’s to having a fun, fearless weekend! Love and blessings.

The photo above is from my great walk this morning with Oliver, my lil sunshine.

    Michelle-

    Your post reminded me of one of my favorite verses from Marianne Williamson. Change is scary, but feel the fear…and do it anyway! Follow the path put in front of you.

    Our Deepest Fear

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

    It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
    We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
    gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

    Actually, who are you not to be?
    You are a child of God.

    Your playing small does not serve the world.
    There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
    so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
    We are all meant to shine, as children do.

    We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
    It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

    And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
    other people permission to do the same.
    As we are liberated from our fear,
    our presence automatically liberates others.

      Beautiful quote! Thank your sharing sweets!

    “Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    And lean not on your own understanding;
    In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    And He shall direct your paths.” ~Proverbs 3:5-6

    Prayers for you, Michelle, that you will boldly take these steps of faith without fear!

      Love that verse, that’s been a favorite on mine. Thanks for sharing and your prayers. Love you girl!

  3. Cassie April 14, 2012 at 10:41 am #

    Yes, yes and yes!!!!
    I love this, Michelle. I’m so happy to hear you say it. I feel like the two of us are in such a similar state of mind right now. Feel the fear, but do it anyway. It’s easy to say, much harder to do, but I think it’s worth it. I know it is.
    Sending love and peace.

    • Michelle April 15, 2012 at 11:00 pm #

      Cassie- thanks for your guidance. I know we are fragile, but we’ve got to do bold things without our mates physically here to embrace us. I feel your strength and love, and I hope you feel mine for you. You’ve been tucked in my thoughts and prayers. I’m so looking forward to meeting you in person at some point! Big hugs and love to you!
