Sometimes, saying Goodbye is the best thing to do.
Last week I reached a milestone. And I must say, I’m very proud of myself. When I think about where I was this time last year; I am proud, and I am thankful for how far I have come.
I have been tested in many ways. My faith has been tested. My strength has been tested. My patience has been tested. My character has been tested. My ability to Love, Forgive, Let Go, and find Peace has been tested. I – have truly been tested.
And through it all, I’m still standing strong. Still faithful. Still patient. Still true to who I am inside – loving and forgiving. And I still have peace within.
I’ve seen and heard a lot along this particular journey. I’ve encountered a few different people. And I’ve experienced some crazy things – laughable, but crazy! And through it all, I’m still standing strong.
Everything that I go through – the good, the bad, the happy, and the sad – only makes me stronger. My mom always tells me, “Know Who You Are and Whose You Are!” This world [the people and things in it] didn’t make me, and it sure won’t break me.
Because I know Who I Am and Whose I Am, in the end, I’ll still be standing strong!
You know, sometimes we welcome things into our life that have no place; that just don’t belong. And sometimes the people who come into our life are only meant to be there for a season. And even if they choose to overstay their welcome, we can choose to close the door and say Goodbye!
Today, I encourage you to say Goodbye – to all the unnecessary negativity in your life! Don’t give it a voice! It can’t be heard if you don’t hear it. It can’t be seen if you don’t see it.
