I was reading a blog post a little while ago and got the most amazing high off the words that were written. They are words I wish I could so eloquently write and speak and inspire into others. It impacted me and it hits me in so many ways.
“You’re weird. You’re a little odd. You’ve never fully fit in but you are finally coming to grips with the fact that you don’t really want to be a follower. And baby, if you don’t want to be something then just don’t be it.” (HB)
If you’re not a follower, don’t be one. You weren’t born to sit in a corner and be silent. You weren’t born to be trampled over or to be defeated by the inevitable adversaries or the people and things of this world that try to break you down. That’s not you, so refuse.
Remember you are a fighter. You are a warrior and you are strong and you are made in the image of THE most powerful.
If you were born a leader. BE IT.
Those situations that seem like an entire lose-lose scenario, do what you know is right. Make your decision based on your calling and your passions and where you feel the Lord is leading you. Whatever the circumstance, be confident in your choice and live it and love it. People aren’t going to agree with you. They may not understand, but you must listen to what your heart is telling you. This doesn’t mean you are selfish, it doesn’t mean you are weak, it may mean you are confident in the path that the Lord is placing before you.
Don’t let people bring you down. You are too beautifully made in the Lord to be down.
Be BOLD. Be honest. Be truthful to yourself.
Just be it.
