Being Brave Amidst Failures and “Not Enoughs”

If you don't feel enough and you feel like a failure? This is for you. 

I'm currently reading this book by Nicole Unice called "Brave Enough". It's about getting over our fears, flaws, and failures. There's this part that hit me so hard it said there,

"Despite all the ways you feel are too much for anyone— too much worry, too much self, too much failure— you are never to much for Him. In all the ways you feel misunderstood or undervalued, in all the ways you know that you are hurt and that you hurt people—you can't shock him enough to make him leave. We learn that as we begin to walk with him daily. We learn it by giving him our whole hearts—with our whole honest mess—and seeing him enter in, heal us, change us, and free us. We learn it through the experience of following. "

I knew that it was God reminding me. You're not too much. You are not a failure. There's nothing you can do that would make God give up on you. 

No matter how broken we think we are?

Tears That Turned Into Courage

  I mustered all the courage in me to write this. I didn't feel like sharing it or beg for anyone's pity. But I realized by sharing this, I am not only raising awareness but hopefully putting out a message out there where everyone can learn from. Women shouldn't be treated like this and men need to start standing up for what's right and do the right thing as well. 

We've heard different stories especially since quite recently different men and women have started to raise awareness on the #metoo campaign. Different stories that speak of how they were looked at or touched in an inappropriate and sexual way. It saddens me that this happens to different people. It happens to anyone at anytime, and everywhere. I have experienced this myself countless times. Just to give everyone a picture? Let me share some of those instances.

To The Ambitious Ones and Over Achievers

   As your heart trembles and doubts, remember you are not alone. You get through the day, the week, the month, thankfully even the whole year. There are big hopes and dreams that fill your head but you never know if they'll ever actually be in your future. You strive to be the best and try to grow as much as you can. In your academics, extra-curricular activities, as well as the different roles you have in every aspect of your life. Do this, do that. Be this, be that. Despite the quiet whispers of the world, you try to be smart enough not to listen. But I guess you just have this feeling the only way you'll reach for the stars is by listening to those nonsense distractions.
