It’s Monday, and I’m just happy to be moving around. I pray you all are having a great day so far! =)
Sooo I’ve gotten pretty good with this transparency thing, so can I be honest with you all? I sometimes struggle with inadequacy. And I know at some point we all do, but yeah…
So initially it was my poetry, was my writing good enough, was what I had to say good enough? I got over that though (thank God!). Then it was with the blog, why would anyone want to read what I had to say, why is my opinion important? And so on…
I never let myself stay there for long, but every now and then these self-depreciating thoughts attempt to derail me… often times leaving me drained from the mental back and forth. And when I feel like that, people telling me that they like the blog and the poetry does nothing to help! You would think that it would have the opposite effect!
These “downers” initially result in contemplation of things no one probably knows the answers to, then trying to identify the emotions I’m experiencing, and then prayer. It’s a process lol and it’s draining!
I’ve just had to learn that I can’t allow these random thoughts of inadequacy scare me. Actually, I shouldn’t give them attention at all. I have faith in my journey and confidence in my purpose, and I know that I won’t fail.
We will cause ourselves destruction more than anyone else has the power to, but if we stay true to our vision and cast out thoughts of insufficiency, then we will be fine! I pray that you all have a great (inadequacy free) week! I love you all and I leave you with this…
Hebrews 13:6 NLT
So we can say with confidence, “The lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?”
Thanks again, God bless and One love.

P. S. As you probably have already guessed by the inconsistencies of the posts lately, I can only guarantee one post a week. =( If I post two, then awesome, but regardless the posts days will remain the same! I truly appreciate you all.
