LISTEN TO THE BEST DAY PODCAST!
This message of encouragement is intended to speak directly to your heart. A message to speak life to your heart. In order to remind you that you are exactly where you need to be. Therefore, keep your focus ahead of you and walk in the path that is right before you! An ultimate pep talk from my heart to yours – a message of encouragement to truly inspire you and empower you to live as the best version of yourself!
Right now is an amazing opportunity to breathe deep and remove the pressure from ourselves and release the expectation. The best time to remind ourselves that we are doing okay. That we are making it. There can be so much pressure we put on ourselves and the things we hope to accomplish in the month of January. However, it is so important to remind ourselves that we are just simply human. And that we are simply trying to do the best that we can do!
While, some days we are not even trying to be the best we can, because we just don’t have that level of energy. It is incredibly important to know that even on those days, it is absolutely okay! How you show up each and every day to live, every level of you showing up is OKAY! There are some days where you will feel as if you are thriving. While on the other hand, there are days that will resemble more like a disaster and a mess. On those days know, it is absolutely okay!
Be fully you in the disaster and be fully you in the mess. Seriously, a message of encouragement to allow you to experience the freedom of living as the full and complete version of you, no matter what that may look like or seem! I truly want to speak life to your heart and remind you that you are exactly need to be. And to do that, I am going to share one specific thing to encourage you right now. And that message, to focus on what works for you!
There are so many distractions, especially in a world that is always telling you how you need to be and how you must show up and live your life. So many different voices and opinions and they can truly try to define your own value and your own worth. Yet, when we focus on all those voices and distractions, it can easily steer our heart away from where we are supposed to be, and the things we are supposed to do, and the place we are called to serve in that moment.
Therefore, this message is truly meant to encourage you in order to focus on what works for you. Do what works for you and own that. Don’t worry about what works for others. You don’t owe anyone an explanation nor do you own them an apology. Show up as the person you need to be and trust that she is enough. That person is enough.
It can be so easy to let comparison win. While, it can also be easy to try and justify our thoughts, feelings and emotions compared to the world’s perception around us. And it can be so easy to look at everyone else and to see what works for other people and then instantly doubt where you are and what you are currently doing.
This message of encouragement is to support in you finding confidence. Therefore, be confident in the life that you are living. Stay true to who you are. Don’t feel as if you need to justify yourself or scream it from the rooftops, just so people can understand you. Additionally, trust that you are the person in your life in this moment, that the people around you need. That you are the very you right now for a purpose. Furthermore, that person is valuable, and worthy, and deserves all the love and support.
Feel encouraged and know that the only thing that matters is how you are choosing to live your life and how you feel about it on the inside. Take a deep look within and think to yourself – is where I am currently okay? Is where I am at currently working for me? Do I feel joy? Peace? Abundant rest in where I am? What if things are not working? When you feel those things that reveal it is not working, try to figure out why.
Additionally, anytime you feel doubt, and anytime you feel uncertainty, make sure it is not coming from the world. Or from the other opinions and other voices. The only voice that matters is the voice within your heart. That voice deserves to be seen, heard, and valued.
There are so many different opinions about every single choice we make in our lives. Be encouraged and feel freedom. To know that you are doing an incredible job where you are. That you are enough. As well as knowing, you matter and are so worth it. Stop giving yourself judgement based on everyone else. Stop comparing yourself to everyone else. Therefore, the only thing that matters is how you feel about the choices you are making and how you are living.
My hope is that this message of encouragement can bring power and purpose to your heart. That you can find a sense of confidence in who you are because you are the person you were created to be. Be honest with yourself, don’t be afraid of having real and hard conversations with you. Start thinking through the things you are doing, how you are living, and the choices you are making and ask yourself, does this work for me?
Know that the season you are in, is just a season. It won’t always be like this. Your breakthrough is coming. Your rest is coming. I want you to feel encouraged and to know that you are enough. Every single version of you, that person is enough! Truly hope you feel encouraged through this message!
