Are You Living Scared??
PEOPLE!!! It’s time for a little REAL TALK.... a little convo over our coffee. ☕️ Because I need to chat with you about something that’s been on my heart lately.
And, maybe you won’t agree with me here... but I have to get it out. 🤗 I HAVE to RAISE this BANNER because HOW we RAISE ourselves up, & how we raise the NEXT generation matters.
I’m not gonna tell you what to do. 🙅🏼♀️ But, how about I tell you what *I’m* aiming to do.
>> I DO NOT want to raise scared kids. I want to raise BRAVE kids. <<
I don’t want FEAR to bind their purpose here as it almost bound mine. So, every day, I constantly choose the BRAVE choice: to LIVE as if I’m LOVED.
Now, we all have choices here. For me, I can live as if other people’s opinions matter more than our Creator’s... or I can choose to see myself the way He sees me - as WORTHY. 🙏🏼
I can live as if I am unlovable and nothing will change... or I can love myself SO DANG HARD that it’s clear as day that I. AM. ENOUGH. 💕
Now, let’s talk about you for a second. (Keep in mind this is the same pep talk I’ve given myself hundreds of times over these last four years.... but, it WORKS.)
If YOU show your kids that YOU are LOVED, you are WORTHY & you are ENOUGH. What do you think they might think about themselves?
If you go around like your life SUCKS for whatever reason instead of looking at the BLESSINGS... How do you think your kids are going to feel about their own lives? 😬
If you give up on YOUR dreams and decide they don’t matter... What makes you think your kids will hold onto theirs??
If YOU think you are too small to change your life, or change the world... DO you REALLY think your kids will grow up to believe they are capable of MAKING CHANGE??
“Scared moms raise scared kids. Brave moms raise brave kids. Real disciples raise real disciples.” - Jen Hatmaker #PREACH
When I say “LETS ALL BE BRAVE,” I don’t just mean some of us.... I mean ALL of us. 👌🏼
Because every life counts. EVERY life impacts the ones around them. Whether it’s your kids, your spouse, your friends, your family... what kind of impact are you leaving?
If every life were a tally....
Which side would you land on?? 🤷🏼♀️
SCARED (Are you making decisions based on fear?)
- OR -
BRAVE (Are you making decisions based on unfailing LOVE? aka. There is nothing to fear.)
