OOh.. I'm on a roll.

Tomorrow starts something new.

a New(ER) car.

I've been fighting change for a while. My pride is having to take a backseat to wisdom. It ain't easy.

But you know how you know that you just have to do things sometimes?

That the initial puncture of a shot is really the only part that hurts?

That the first cut really is the deepest?

Sorry... tangent there.

I have to remember that sometimes, life is a metaphor. That tonight I drive a Buick, but tomorrow, I'll drive a Lincoln.

Do you understand what I'm trying to say?

That I keep settling for what I'm comfortable with, when THE WHOLE TIME GOD HAS SOMETHING BIGGER FOR ME??

Do you get it now?

And don't you understand that the metaphor rings true for all of us?


Get. it.

Quoted from Marianne Williamson:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
