Against The Grain

I have been fighting with myself for years, yet I have always wondered why I got the same results. I always complained of being unhappy and life was consistently unfair. Well, as the saying goes “you are what you say you are.” So, for the last 29 years of my life I have been looming around and going from one catastrophe to the next. The beautiful thing about God is that if you really want to know why your life is going to hell in a hand basket He will tell you, so I asked. God silently whispered to me, “You are going the wrong way because you are resisting everything I have for you, so nothing else will happen because you are bucking against the grain. I stopped dead in my tracks….”What? So you mean this entire time the only thing I had to do was open my eyes the the possibility of happiness and run toward it no matter what, then I would be happy?” He gently replied, “Yes, Sherita.” I can’t believe it can be that easy.

This “ah-hah” moment reminds me of Sister Act 2, when Whoppi Goldberg told Lauryn Hill, “girl if you wake up every morning and the only thing you can do is think about singing — then that is what you are …a singer. If you want to be somebody if you want to go somewhere, you better wake up and pay attention.” Here is the eye on the sparrow clip….just to remind you of your ability.

The hardest part of becoming the person you want to become is fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of failure. Fear of success. Fear of other people’s thoughts of you. Fear of isolation. The fear messages are endless. However, when you are focused on perfecting the art of you — nothing — not even fear will be able to stop you. The human mind is so powerful and amazing. When you have a destination and you know where you want to go the only thing you have to do is decide to do it — focus on it and keep going until you get what you want. Do not make excuses for the reasons you can’t accomplish anything, because you won’t accomplish it. Remember the universal rule — life follows the path of LEAST/LESS resistance. The more you resist the more your life is going to turn in another direction, whether you like it or not. Claim the life you want and get it now!

Have a wonderful day!
