This weeks topic for following my God-sized dream is to recall a positive step that I took in the past that helped me move forward. As I reflect, a lot of what I did in the past to “move forward” was out of sheer will power. So this is a challenging question for me. While I am grateful for many of my experiences and did move forward, I’m not sure will power was the way to go. It often was motivated by fear, drained my energy and at the end I still wondered if this was all there is.
Over the past 5 years what has helped me move forward through some very challenging circumstances is giving up my will power and finding people to share my fears and heart felt dreams with. As I share with them they also share with me and we connect in our vulnerabilities. For me, this is empowering. There is freedom. Freedom to be who I am, exposed and human. Some how in that acceptance comes the courage to move forward. There’s no need for will power because there’s an abundance of love power.
