Discover Your Greatness

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” —Nora Ephron, writer

You are not broken and there is nothing to fix. I am so very grateful that I woke up to this fact years ago. Being a victim is exhausting and therefore people with victim mindset are usually always tired. I can remember those days. I did not want to get up out of bed. I did not want to go outside as it was too bright. I didn’t feel good and nothing helped. Most of what I heard from others was “I’m sorry.” They were sorry I didn’t feel good, sorry that life had dealt me such a terrible hand, sorry that I had been treated poorly by others and on and on it went. Yes, it is exhausting! I remember making the conscious decision to not be a victim any longer. It started with the story I told others. My response to “how are you” became “I’m great!” Did I always FEEL great? No, of course not. I may have had a headache that day or have aches and pains or even felt lonely … but it was a turning point because I decided that in spite of any discomfort I was feeling, I was doing great. It immediately zaps you out of victimhood. No one says “I’m sorry” in response to your story. Eventually, being “great” is the new normal. Life starts looking different. The four walls that used to be a comfort zone all of a sudden become a prison and the desire to be outside in nature and around others becomes your biggest desire.

Dear Angels, we all have a birth given right to succeed, thrive and enjoy this thing called life. When we play the victim card, people will either feel sorry for us or feel good about themselves for trying to help us. It is up to us to decide what story we tell and break free of that cycle of victimhood.

Dear Ones, in life you have many opportunities to respond to situations and people who will challenge you. No one can take your power away unless you allow it to happen. There may be people who are bigger and stronger than you physically who choose to inflict harm or threaten you in some way. Realize that they are the ones with a problem, not you. Many things in life are beyond your control—including the behavior of other people. Rather than stressing, focus on the things you can control such as the way you choose to react in any given situation. Are you bullying your own self? Dear Ones, we watch as you sometimes beat yourself up or wear yourself down by convincing yourself you are not worthy – that others are more important than you. It is a conscious decision to start standing up for yourself. You will know that you are ready when you don’t want to hear another “I’m sorry” from anyone. We are right beside you when you take that first step. The others will be easier and before you know it, you will be running!

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to keep reminding myself every day that I am great!
