Today, write about anything — but you must write for exactly ten minutes, no more, no less.

1:50 PM

Just settled in from work and needed to get my “write” on so what better way then to accept the daily blog challenge?

Been thinking the whole way home about a dear friend of mine whom I love. Her thinking is her main abuse. She thinks erroneously that she is nothing, unworthy and destined to remain that way. Yes she’s had a rough life. Yes she’s made some poor choices and yes she alone is responsible for her current life situation. But the question I cannot seem to answer is why one would choose to remain in a place of misery. And, bless her heart, she isn’t alone. The world is full of people who continue the same sucky life cycles repetitively. But alas the world promotes the victim mentality and the I can’t mantra from every angle. Maybe some of us are more fighter then settlers. I only know that if I could help her to change I would probably give my left arm to do so. I would if I could but I can’t so I won’t. At this point all I can do is encourage, share instrumental information that changed my life and listen. I cannot DO it for her and that frustrates the hell out of me. All I have control of is ME, not one single other individual. I don’t want to watch her slowly kill herself. But the bottom line is until she accepts responsibly for her life and decides to really pursue something better I remain helpless and sadly, heartbroken.

TODAY’S PERSONAL PEP TALK

I WILL NOT be moved!

Struggles WILL come and ARE eminent. I AM…..

1Strongwoman able to stand thru storms.

1Strongwoman able to move with the universe’s flow, refusing the upstream struggle of the sheeples.

1Strongwoman able to sit in circumstances with JOY and wait patiently with FULL and living hope.

1Strongwoman who knows that without hope you can’t make it through a day.

1 Strongwoman who knows that all things work together for good, to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

1Strongwoman who has been on a life long journey for the significance found in being my genuine self

1Strongwoman who will find a path with the help and encouragement of others

1Strongwoman who will not allow discouragement or nay-saying to prevent me from bettering myself

1Strongwoman who has been through enough rough patches, dark tunnels, slippery slopes, pits of depression, financial fiascos, and spiritual battles to know beyond the shadow of a doubt; that circumstances are temporary, there is light at the end of every tunnel, slippery slopes lead to learning curves and I have guns big enough to work my way up outta each and every pit!

1Strongwoman able because the spirit of the universe lives in me!

1Strongwoman able because “greater is HE that is in me” than anyone in this world telling me “I can’t!”

Because this

1Strongwoman knows God is able to do, exceedingly, abundantly far above ALL I could ask or think.

1Strongwoman who does NOT have can’t in her vocabulary. The word doesn’t compute. Don’t tell me I can’t do something!

For this

1Strongwoman can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength.

I fully understand and in all reality, I am right now, embracing the actuality that struggle and hardship are great signs of confirmation. “Where there is no struggle there is no progress”. When I have Your spirit so rise up in me and give me a word; I am always challenged. And when I have courage to follow (and I always obey sooner or later) in spite of all that occurs surrounding the original golden arrow…well greatness happens. Walls move, barriers are identified and dissolved. And my resolve and grit have to pump up and in turn just like my biceps, they get stronger. I thank the universe, for revealing the spirit in me which apparently I’ve left dormant. It rose up out of my mouth like a mama bear protecting her cubs and I couldn’t type fast enough. All the voices shouting in my head; finances, finding a job, disease trying to rob me of my son and now my boyfriend, what if…what if until “Back to hell” I shout aloud! No it won’t be easy. But there is a price for every valuable experience.

I’m grateful that this day’s struggles have brought me back to my word, my quote, my name, the backdrop of my life…..one I’ve repeated over and over, my retort to each challenge fear or weakness for it is my pass code, my cord to the Power source. My reminder of who I am and how You fill me up to overflowing. 1Strongwoman! Yes that IS me 🙂my bicep tat
