So we are still in the season of Lent and have done 19 days successfully!
As this is the time for self examination and reflection rather then focus on what Jesus did, I wanted to take a moment to think about me and my life.
Here are some questions that I am going to answer and you can too:
What is important to you?
God is important to me as well as my family, my health and well being. Radio is important to me as allows me to be creative and make a product that others can enjoy listening to. Helping others is also important to me and seeing people happy and content really gives my life purpose.
Who is important to you?
My mother as she is a strong woman who despite her circumstances gave myself and my siblings a great quality of life, she taught us about, love honor and respect and how to be there for people, even if they were never present in our lives. She is amazing and is like my Mother Theresa and each day I pray God’s Blessings over her for all that she has done for my family and others even when they have thrown it back in her face. She is a selfless woman that does not believe in tit for tat and I pray I can be like her and more.
My family, friends and the real genuine people I am Blessed to have in my life. For me it is the little things that make me so appreciative of the people I have around me.
What could you do better?
I could be more pro-active when getting things done, apply myself more and not think of others being better then me or above me regardless of their age, experience, gender race or background. What my new motto should be without sounding like I am trying to copy Nike is to literally ‘just do it!’
More confidence in myself and my abilities and not allow that to hold me back as regardless of how we look we all have insecurities (I’d like to think Beyonce’ has some too right?!)
How could you be better?
I could be better by learning to be fearless and embrace the fear but do it anyway so I can look back and say at least I tried.
I could allow all the years of giving up certain things for Lent to be a everyday lifestyle and not something that I will struggle to do once a year. I can do better by not worrying about what others or society thinks about me and to be me and do me!
Heres to another 21 days left where I think we should make an effort to make a resolution for good during this Lent and apply it to our every day lives, whether it is reading your Bible more, not going on social media as much, gossiping, or self wallowing and feeling sorry for yourself when really and truly you are blessed to even be here and able to read this.
I am not perfect and neither are you, but together we can make a difference in our own lives and others by making small changes each day and before we know it it will be like second nature.
