Who do you think you are?

Really Who do you think you are?

This question is usually post with the intent to discredit others, to hurt their feelings and put them down.

Even though this statement has so many negative connotations to it, it’s imperative that we continuously post this question to ourselves for self-evaluation because who we think we are; we become.

So who do you think you are? Do you believe you are worthy of love? Do you think you deserve magnificent houses and fast cars? Do you think your voice matters? Your feelings matters? Because they do.

The image you have of yourself is the driving force for your life. If you have a strong sense of who you are, outside forces that will try to bring you down will not affect that much.

Have a blessed Sunday and a great week ahead.

The Plan

(Fiction)

I’ve decided not to run anymore. I’m standing and facing the truth of who I am. I am bitter, angry, disappointed and hurt. These are not new feelings. I have bee collecting them and storing them for a rainy day. I did not realize that these feelings were slowing rusting my soul, infecting me from within. I’ve waited too long, wasted too much time. I wanted to be in charge of this one part of me. I was ready to give you everything but this. I thought if there’s anything I could handle this was it. Yet here I am. Humiliated, back with a tail between my legs.

She was allowed to ramble on and on for about an hour and before a response was given. She stood up and left the room without so much as a good night. The pain of seeing her suffer was unbearable. To think she was choosing pain over comfort was crushing.

“Come back! I’m here for you!”

She was gone…

Everything has fallen apart. It feels like a hurricane was here and turned my life upside down. Everything I was holding together is scattered around and the roof that was covering my dignity is gone. I am exposed I never felt more naked in my life. What am I going to do? She began to weep. She wept uncontrollably for hours. “I need a plan, please!” She hollered.

“I have a plan!” before the plan was announced she continued weeping louder as she indulged in more and more self-pity. She wept until she fell asleep.

How much longer? I’m so tired. I’ve cried so much that my soul is exhausted. What am I going to do? I don’t know what to do. So please tell me what to do… 

She bowed her head and waited this time, the answer came. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

The Circle of Stagnation

The San Diego Zoo found out that Cheetahs are very nervous animals and that in order for them to be comfortable they are paired up with dogs from a young age. I saw the cute photos of Cheetahs and their dog buddies and the Instagram comment section was filled with Oohs and Awes… It bothered me because, from learning about animals in my native Namibia I know Cheetahs are graceful, majestic and are able to run 120 km/h. Now that they are confined to limited space they are labelled as nervous and need a dog to be ok.

They are in what I call “the circle of stagnation”. These animals were made to hunt, to move with the flow of life. There’s an urge in them to pursue a prey and to conquer it before enjoying their dinner. If they are being confined to a small space they are being denied of their natural instincts.  They are no longer in alignment with the flow of their lives.

The same thing happens to human beings. When you find yourself in repetitive situations and feel like you’re not going anywhere and like the Cheetahs of San Diego Zoo certain labels will be attached to you. That you’re maybe always so angry, bitter and or negative; but you’re just frustrated because you’re no longer in alignment with the flow of your life. You’re not running the full 120 km/h that you were meant to run. Use this unease as a guide to where you need to be.

Bless you.
