Take Responsibility

In the moments when my thoughts relegate the outside world to background vocals while aggressively singing lead,

In the moments when I feel overwhelmingly aware of my own insecurities,

In the moments when I can’t figure out a way to separate what I’m feeling from how I look,

I do my best to remind myself that this whirlwind, this tornado, this tsunami is temporary.

The knowledge of just how fleeting these moments are doesn’t take away from how intense they actually are and how much they affect me

But this knowledge reminds me that though I may not understand it & though I may not see it, God has a plan.

Today’s post was already written and edited after hours of hard work,

However I woke up this morning and it was gone.

Everything you’ve read thus far isn’t what I originally planned to share

But I woke up this morning with a renewed sense of encouragement & when I saw that my original post was deleted, I took a deep breath and started over.

I’ve been sharing on this platform for almost two years now and a scheduled post has never just disappeared.

There must be a reason for this.

So today I’m walking into the next few hours with the knowledge that if I’m still here, there is work left to do.

My existence is directly linked to my purpose.

& since, for some bizarre reason, this post is the one going live today and not the one I wrote yesterday,

I feel that someone needed to be reminded that their existence is directly linked to their purpose, as well.

You and I have right now and all that comes after it and it is our responsibility to handle all unfinished business

It is our responsibility to learn

It is our responsibility to fight

It is our responsibility to forgive

It is our responsibility to love

It is our responsibility to heal

&

It is our responsibility to grow

Happy Self-Love Sunday everyone
