One of the most vulnerable Dream Big Noon-Spirations yet. I could feel my level of uncomfort, and if I were to be honest I really contemplated deleting it. It’s one of those times where I just have to trust that my vulnerability is growing me and God is helping me with claiming my voice and stepping forward into my power.
Religion. Oh boy, I went there. Such a hot topic and I’m not sure my view is a popular one. Yet, even writing that I am contemplating the idea about “the popular view”, is there really? We want diversity and freedom, yet many resist and fight free thinking. We want exclusivity, yet many make fun of people who are unique. We want to be wealthy, yet many are jealous of those with success. See where I am going with this? It is kind of crazy if you think about it. The level of insanity, the limits that we have put on ourself, mostly because we fear the backlash from others.
When did I put the limits on myself, I have thought about this. When was the time that I began telling myself that it was ok to “settle” without even realizing that I had put those kind of limits on myself? It’s like slowly boiling something, once it’s in the water and it slowly gets turned up, it’s not noticeable because its gradual. Where as if the water was boiling and then you put something in the water it would react faster to the extreme changes in temperatures. I think that’s how we have become conditioned. Layer by layer, brick by brick, with each person saying something that has you question your biggest dreams. That’s how we build our armor around ourself.
