YOU ARE…

A poem about your true identity!


The enemy will tell you that:

You are unworthy
You are alone
You are never chosen
You are ignored
You are untalented
You don’t belong
You are hopeless
You are stupid
You are ugly
You are weak
You are not valuable
You are nothing
You are not important
You are neglected
You are hiding
You are afraid
You should give up
You are a default
You are a failure
You don’t deserve anything
You are an outcast
You have no friends
You are invisible
You have no one
You are unwanted
You are worthless

But, God tells you that:

You are worthy
You are valuable
You are His beloved child
You are unique
You are kind
You are chosen by the King
You are talented
You are filled with hope
You are full of faith
You are smart
You are funny
You are strong
You are beautiful
You are important
You are everything to the Creator
You are accepted
You are brave
You are bold
You are His first choice
You are deserving
You are wanted
You are popular
You are worthy

And, most importantly,
YOU ARE LOVED!

The rear-view mirror…

Your breakthrough is coming!

. . .

“Dreams in the rear-view mirror are closer than they appear.”

Although, you should keep looking forward when chasing your dreams; sometimes you need to glance backwards at the progress you’re making along the way because that progress is actually your dreams starting to come true.
Think about it this way:

Your dreams are catching up to you.
They’re coming –
Closer and closer –
Each day, they inch forward.

You think: “Looking back is bad.”.
All you see back there are your failures.
You think the rear-view mirror is showing you all your mistakes & failures.

But, it’s actually the opposite.
It’s showing you all the lessons learned from the amazing, and crazy journey you took while working towards your dreams.
Those past failures and mistakes are actually your dreams starting to take shape.

Looking in that rear-view mirror should not discourage you.
Instead it should remind you that all those mistakes and failures are just speed bumps along this amazing journey towards achieving your dreams!


Thanks for reading!
I hope this post inspired you to always continue to chase your dreams!

Dear younger me,

          Hey you! I know you think that your life’s not going super great right now, and I wish I could tell you all the mistakes I’ve made, all the mistakes you will make, all the pain you will feel and just everything to help you have a perfect life & be one step ahead.
I would tell you how everything’s going to turn out. I would tell you exactly what to do. I would tell you that your life is never going to be perfect. I would tell you that you are always going to be different. I would tell you how to live your perfect and best life.

I would give you all the answers you want to hear!

But, to be honest, I still don’t have all the answers.
Instead, I’m just going to tell you to never be afraid; just be you and make your life decisions to the best of your abilities and knowledge because that will make you happy and it will create a life you will be proud of. If you make your own decisions, you will create your life and no one else’s and that will make you proud and happy.

There’s nothing I could tell you that will change your life because the decisions you make today will make the future you, YOU.
Life is a series of decisions we make and those decisions impact who we become; decisions are an important part of our life journey. Stop trying to create the perfect life for yourself, just start winging it and making the decisions you think are best for you in this moment.

~Don’t be afraid to make choices because they are what make you unique and create an amazing life for yourself.~

I know that right now, you might think that you need all the answers so you don’t mess up, but let me tell you that whatever happens is not your fault.
Ya, sure it was your decision that led you here, but that doesn’t mean you made a mistake. Every decision you make will help you learn and make you better, which will help you make even better decisions in the future. Don’t let your past mistakes scare you from making great future decisions; you are making the decisions that you believe are right and those decisions will give you the life you deserve and have created for yourself. Don’t let life scare you, just keep living it one day at a time; and I promise, one day you’ll look back and wonder how you got here.
Every decision you make is leading you to a different situation that you don’t know anything about, so you can’t possibly know what to do, but don’t be scared. The unknown future doesn’t have to be scary, it can actually be quite exciting, just don’t stress!

~Your life is not a mistake.~
~The decisions you made to get here were not mistakes!~
~Every decision you make is a step forward, even if it doesn’t feel like it in the moment!~

I know, it might seem scary to have so much control over your life, but if you’re ever in a funk about making decisions, just remember to think about the life you want and deserve, and make your decisions based on that, because you know deep down what you really deserve and what you really want. 

REMEMBER:
You got this!
You can do it!
You are amazing!
Just look how far you’ve come; You’re doing great!

Okay, now that you know you’re doing great, stop looking back at how far you’ve come, it’s good encouragement but, you need to start looking at all the amazing things you have left to accomplish! Start making those amazing decisions!

Sincerely,

Future you, that realizes that her life turned out pretty GREAT!
Thank You for all your hard work and for never giving up! 🙂
