“A lion doesn’t concern itself with the opinion of sheep” – George R. R. Martin
Today, I realized that I need to look above the little things. The temporary things. The things that just aren’t meant for me. I need to look beyond temporary people. People that are not there to effect my purpose but can watch me head there. Today, I realized that in loving myself and effecting my purpose, I can’t be afraid of losing anything or anyone. As long as I fear these things, my standard remains compromised and not mine and, further, where there is fear, Love and Purpose cannot operate. Christ cannot operate. I’m merely choosing to remain fearful and unhappy.
Thankfully, I’m one to learn lessons quickly and so plans to not be in this same classroom ever again are underway. I’m thankful for lessons in patience and building patiently and I’m thankful for the lessons in Love that have brought me to where I am and to where I’m going. I’ll remain ever indebted to my educators.
There is a humbling feeling when operating in Love. There is no room for ego and definitely no room for fear. But, rather, a diminishing of the two, making way for faith that grows to be confidence and confidence that grows to be humble successes, that should always remain testimonies. Footholds and lamps for those on the same path, as opposed to pedestals built for ourselves. So climb a little higher, towards your purpose, my friend, to gain a clearer vision of your purpose and how to get there.
