Thank you for following me this week on Grown Up Conversations. You my readers did me well. There’s no ME without YOU! Thank you 🙏🏾
It’s the final day on QUOTES.
Today’s quote is, “Be Brave enough to heal yourself even when it hurts.” Bianca Sparacino
If I told you that the strength you see in me came from the school of hard knocks you may find it hard to believe. Why? Because all you see now is the work in progress and not the ashes.
Still there are zillion flashes of fear and anxiety when I feel unsure about myself. I second guess myself all the time when I have to perform in public. But despite the unnecessary chatter in my head I manage to push past my negative thoughts.
William Shakespeare says it best – “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.”
As humans, we are given ONE opportunity (birth) to make an appearance with no knowledge of when we will be pulled off the stage (death). So, be brave enough to be your own cheerleader. A happy life is better than a successful life.
Don’t be afraid of new beginnings. If you dream it – you can achieve it. Go ahead – check your last accomplishment off your bucket list and be proud that you showed up even though you were running scared.
The only way things get better is when you get better. Walk your talk even if you feel wobbly. One day all the people who never believe in you will tell others how they met you.
You either choose to face the crowd with a little reservation or live with regret for the rest of your life. Do it for you!
It’s been years of repeat stories and cycles of pain – exchange them for your superpower. Be resilient to accept the fact that you are braver than you believe.
Guard your thoughts when you are alone. Become less concerned with looking for approval. You are a fighter. Don’t give up. Grown ups do what needs to be done and then they take a break.
Philippians 4:8 teaches us how to be brave to heal ourselves – “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
If I can help one person to believe in themselves at any age then my living will not be in vain.
