Who Do You Want To Be?

When looking at freedom and the choices we have in life, or things we can control in our life, one of the biggies is our person and character.   We can decide who we want to be… or what we want to be like.  How do you see yourself?  Do you let others decide how you are going to react or do you decide for your self?  In this crazy world messages are all around us.  Just because someone says something negative or something negative happens in the world, does not mean we have to take it in and allow it to make us “less than” or “not good enough”.  One of the most defining choices you can make in your entire life is deciding to control the quality of person you will be on an everyday basis.   You can control how you treat others, what you stand for, and what purpose you are pursuing.  This forms the quality of life for you.  Can you imagine being the greatest version of your self?  What would that look like?  What would the result be for you and those around you?    For me, I call this the power of princess!!

A Princess is able to stay in the center of her life confident and congruent in herself, rising to the challenges of life.  She stays engaged and fully present in the moment, yet she can also look to the future with excitement and optimism.  Problems and challenges are solvable and solving them will make the world a better place.  She is ready for whatever life throws at her and can be playful and determined in uncertain times.  She has strong connections with others and gives and receives love as it flows all around.  Yet, she is  resourceful and can chart her own course.  She knows she is not responsible for others happiness and knows they are not responsible  for hers.  Seeing the big picture, she lives as the daughter of her creator God, placed in the world with a destiny and purpose unique to her.

Wow, this is the first time I have written it out in this way, although I have held glimpses of it.  How helpful will this be to have and read every day and decide— This is me today.  How will I act, think, believe to make this real to myself and to everyone I come in contact with? HMMmm!  I think it will be amazing!!
