Hello and welcome!!
I’m so grateful that you clicked into “OUR” space. Yes, you read that right, “ours,” yours and mine, but I’ll get into that a little later…Please feel free to look through the pages, like, comment, connect and follow this blog, if you feel led. This is a motivational lifestyle blog with a biblical twist aiming to serve in love with a mission to embrace those who have lost sight of who they are and who they want to be. Take hold of your dreams again as we strategize what steps can be taken to make them come true, we will be finding our best selves together by simply getting better in every area. Please understand that action is heavily involved in this process.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light,not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. -Marianne Williamson, A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles
I understand far too well, how scary it is to leave “stability” for uncertainty or even if your desire isn’t to leave, just starting something new can be overwhelming. Sometimes you have to do it afraid and that’s what makes us peculiar, where others would give up and retreat to their comfort zones, we press on! You’ve likely realized that you were chosen for this, something deep within bears witness and you know you’ll never be fulfilled unless you go after it. So why not go on this journey with friends? Please follow my blog and we’ll be *road trip buddies for life!
*See what I did there? Road trip (journey with friends) for life (in favor of the life we deserve) The cornball in me couldn’t help it. 😀
Although, this started as personal self discovery, it’s developed and now it’s about your discovery as well. I’m realizing that so many of us are at a point in our lives where we are too old to be irresponsible but too young to let our dreams die. Brian Littrell said, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” That’s not bad odds if you ask me, but you must doing something to keep your dream from dying…you must shoot for the stars. Yes, it can be scary but you are equipped. With We, The Peculiars, you’ll never have to do it alone. No longer will your light be dimmed by societal pressures or its norms. You were meant to stand out, you are different by design-a peculiar person who is loved by God…and me.
So later for shrinking, it’s our time. Let’s do this!
