Life is what we make it! It's time to Build Your Life #BYL Too often we are confined by the opinions, feelings, judgement and desires of others for our lives. We are enslaved, not truly living our lives for us. If we are truly going to be free, we have to start with accepting who we are and living our best lives; not the life someone else wants us to live. It's important to have family and loved ones a part of your journey but how real is it? If you aren't yourself around the people you love, are they loving the image you create for them or do they truly love you?
LIFE challenges us to face who we are daily. We have mastered building finances, communities, houses and careers and sometimes the most intricate areas of our lives, spirituality, health, rest & relaxation, self improvement are over looked. Build Your Life in the reverse. Build you first! Before we can build a healthy family, career, community our home, we have to be balanced spiritually, physically and mentally. We can't be great in relationships if we aren't humble, forgiving and loving. We can't enjoy relationships if we are healthy. We aren't the leaders we can be if we're mentally burnt out and constantly pouring into others leaving ourselves empty.
Learn from others and build your own. We don't have to recreate the wheel, but we can personalize the wheel. The best thing about you is you! There will always be someone who can do something better than you. That doesn't take away the fact that what you bring to the table is unique. We all can have similar gifts that we use differently. However, the only gift that you have no one else can have is you! That's why it's important for you to build your own life. Live in a way that you have out dreamed your biggest dream; that you have out worked your largest plan and that you out performed your purpose perfectly!
