As I engage in conversation with family and friends, a common topic reoccurs. It seems that everyone feels like they should be doing more! I believe it is human nature to continue to strive for better. At times, I think we all feel stagnant. We become stuck in our routines, but then, there is that “thing” that keeps inviting itself back into our thoughts. Some of us hide it better and refuse to let it stay too long. For others, it haunts us, hangs over us like a dark cloud until we can’t resist the craving of sunshine. So many of us, including myself have a fear of letting go and trusting the process. We want it all figured out before we take a step. If you think about it, how interesting would the journey be if we knew each part of the path. What is exciting, is God has given us these precious gifts; tailored to each one of us. We just have to step out on faith and know that he did not create us to fail. As I prepared myself to start this day, there was one word that replayed itself over and again in my mind…DARE. I thought; Dare to be great. Dare to try something new. Dare to follow what your heart tells you. Dare to challenge the norm. I created this acronym to break down some essential steps towards living a more fulfilled life. I am learning to live by these things. I want to share these steps with you I hope that it helps someone get closer to their purpose!
Dream in purpose.
Accept the gift that God has chosen for you.
Remove all the things working against you.
Expect great things to come.
Let this marinate. This can be achieved in different ways. We all have different paths, but the goal is the same. We all want to live a more purpose driven life. Please tell me what D.A.R.E. means to you! I will go more in depth with this concept in further posts. Remember…The Truth is Better Naked!!
