I was in the presence of several of my mentors recently at a conference. I came face to face with an old program that has been running me. In the presence of my mentors and other people I respect greatly, I wanted to “look good”. UGH! I am SO done with that!
My journey is my journey as your journey belongs to you. I don’t know about you. My goal and my theme is to operate my life by living out my purpose, serving my Creator, and being in a place of contribution back to the Universe. And if I can be happy doing what I am doing, then life is grand.
Let me unpack when I say I am SO done with “that”, what exactly do I mean by “that”? I am done with trying to impress others just to “look good” or gain respect. I am holding myself “capable” of much more. From here on out, I don’t care what you think of me – how I dress, how I act, what I drive, where I live, who I choose to hang out with.
I only need to impress myself. I don’t even need to impress God – He already loves me just the way I am. I cannot buy His love – for it was already bought for me over 2000 years ago. I do strive to live a life that pleases God that will never change. When I talk about “impressing” someone, I am talking the human flesh walking on earth type.
At the end of the day, when I check in with myself and reflect back on my day, I get to go to bed with a smile on my face knowing I lived a full life today with excitement and urgency. Now that is impressive journey in my opinion.
Impressing Me Because I am Worthy,
