Have you ever reached a place and decided that; it’s time to live. Living my best life and living my one life.
Happy New Year guys and welcome back to my blog.
The other day, I decided to watch Bling Empire on Netflix and one particular character caught my attention. Anna Shay. First of all, she is wealthy, not rich and she has a demeanor that really captivated me. She has a mantra she kept repeating throughout the show, YOU HAVE ONE LIFE, LIVE IT. THIS IS NOT A DRESS REHEARSAL.
Read. That. Again.
When I completed the show, I asked myself; I’m I living my life? This question has been on my mind. I have humbly accepted that for a long time, I have been living but not at my fullest. I have been living but not wholly! I have been withholding bits and pieces of my life that would probably give me more fulfillment. I have chopping myself in small pieces so people, who most of, are only figurines in my mind , would accept me.
Not only have I held back living my true self, but I have also denied those around me from enjoying authenticity of relationships with me.
While life happens, I intend to remind myself that I have only one life. Each day that passes by I intend to live intentionally reminding myself that this is not a dress rehearsal.I intend to laugh more. I intend to dance more. I intend to go fiercely after my goals. I intend to celebrate the gift of life. Given that life will happen, and that it’s a winding road, I intend to switch my perspective and see what’s going right.
So, no more curated living, no more undervaluing of my gifts and capabilities.Yes! To Living my one life, for the glory of God. The ultimate audience.
Happy New Year!
