As I get older, fail forward, fail backwards, and strap some experience between my palomino mane 🐎, it has been made LOUD and CLEAR that I am not here to live as others think I should. 😳
I have tried it. And I always come up short. Have you tried it? 🤷♀️ Have you ever come to that conclusion? It took me til my twenties of course, but I have learned that no one knows my heart, my body, my dreams, and God’s will for me better than me and the man Himself (He actually has the steering wheel 😜, though at times, I feel like I need to slam the chicken 🐓 brake because I don’t know where He is taking me 🙈🤷♀️). Though I once became a master at listening to what others thought my career should be, what my body should look like, what I should eat, and where I need to be in life by the age of 30, life is too dang short for conformity sister! What a joy killer! Serious joy killer!! 🙄🙄🙄 I have been there. I was told a few years ago, that work and what I do for a living should NOT be loved, and that I don’t get to have flexibility in what I want to pursue. My dreams and visions died. My true self became suppressed slowly. Sadly, without me knowing it. I was conditioned to live a life by someone else’s fear and comfort and I wasn’t aware of it or couldn’t quite put my finger on why I was feeling down and out.
You may have been in a similar situation. Someone telling you what to eat, what time to eat, why to eat, and what not eat. Or maybe, you have subconsciously made decisions based on other people’s fears and learned generational behavior your entire life.
Getting to love what you do and eat isn’t a luxury, it is a necessity. The beauty is in the blend of marrying these together. Living a life to glorify God with your body, being, and calling is intuitive and comes straight from God if we are tuning in to what He is telling us.
