When Change Comes, Make the Big Bold Decision to Believe in Yourself No Matter What
"While writing the story of your life,
don't let anyone else hold the writing utensil.
Know the fact that you are enough,
you are worth it and you can achieve
what your heart desires."
And remember the
truth that we become a little better every day as we go through remarkable
changes based on our experiences and that we have a harvest of kingdom fruit
awaiting us which we are perfectly suitable to dwell in.
“Storms make trees take deeper roots”
– Sharon Lechter
A tidal wave of
change takes place based on the vibration of thoughts we have about our own
selves. While other people’s negative thoughts can become contagious, make sure
to make the big, bold decisions to stay firmly rooted in believing in yourself.
self-confidence and faith are constructive.”
When your faith
is spilling over, there is nothing that can knock you out of the soil. You
still stand tall and face the brightness of God’s unmatchable sun. Sparks of
possibility seem to never leave us because we are driven by the flames of
achievement of being blessed by another day.
Only God knows
what the next leg of the journey will bring but while we are headed there,
travel along your path with complete confidence that you have everything it
takes to move forward to what is ahead.
I invite you to check out a flashback of a performance I was so blessed to be a part of at Jacob Javitz Convention Center with the Medgar Evers Jazz Ensemble at the graduation ceremony for the 2013 college graduating class. I was experiencing a bunch of anxieties that day having lost my aunt to cancer the day before who left behind five kids under 18 years old. I was so sad about the situation because we were really close and I couldn't belive my little cousins were left without their mother and my uncle had to do whatever he could to handle it.
After singing before the crowd of 5500 people, I went home, cut all my hair off and started a whole different way of thinking about my life. Change I guess is a real thing when death plays a part. At a funeral about a week back, for a beautiful family who lost their hero, their father, I was asked to sing Sam Cook's "A Change is Gonna Come." A few days later, I lost a dear friend and his family's and friend's lives were changed forever. The whole point is to never lose faith.
The song I sang at the graduation, which is also a point of change from experiencing education to experiencing the field and having to deal with maybe not landing the job we want with so much competition for the same work, was "I Am Changing" originally performed by Dreamgirl Jennifer Holiday and it can be found on youtube at: https://youtu.be/lIyQEJgnWuE
