Sing with me, “HOW CAN WE COMMUNICATE. IF YOU DON’T HEAR WHAT I SAY. WHAT I NEED FROM YOU IS UNDERSTANDING”.
For the longest, I just wanted to find myself. I wanted to understand why I could be super happy in one instance and then be completely down the next. I wanted to understand why so many people could say they looked up to me, but I didn’t even feel like I was much of anything to be looked up to. I wanted to understand why I had this gravitational pull where people loved being around me, but yet
I NEVER REALLY FELT LIKE I BELONGED NO MATTER WHERE I WAS.
So to go back to the original question that sparked all of this:
“How did you know to quit your job?”
I understood something for the first time. And it was that even though I couldn’t see everything, I knew I belonged right where I was with the people that were around me. I knew I had a place.
And to be raw, I still don’t understand why God gave me such big dreams and aspirations, BECAUSE THEY KEEP ME UP AT NIGHT, and ANYTHING worth having is for SURE not easy, but I understand that I’m in the perfect position right now to achieve them.
Even more, I know my path to understanding will assist many others in finding their own, stepping into their greatness, pursuing their purpose.
It will allow me the strength to forgive others, being forced to really deal with myself. Because remember when you’re an entrepreneur, EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN YOUR LIFE is a direct reflection of your level of understanding of yourself and your habits.
I have seen the rawest, nastiest, more beautiful parts of myself in the last year because I HAD TO. Pursuing understanding is a foundational piece to purpose. The more you understand the more you forgive, and the more you forgive the more you understand.
Nobody is perfect, as cliche as it sounds. BUT I have been known to be a little judgmental in the past. However, the more I have grown to face my own shortcomings, it’s helped me to forgive others of theirs. Another cliche, which is slightly off topic, forgiveness is for you, NOT FOR OTHERS. Seek to understand as you do, I pray you get closer to living a purpose filled life.
