The Sky’s The Limit

Honestly. The sky is the limit. There is so much available to us in terms of what it is we can hope for as we walk through this life on this planet.

I took some time today to write out exactly what I want to achieve in the next few years. Biggest goal of mine that I hope to achieve in the next couple of months is a home for myself and the kids. Our own place. It has proven to be quite a challenge for me as with being a single mama, most places are not friendly or available to those who only have one income. So it takes a little bit of strategy and a whole lot of prayer (and I’m going to be honest, some cussing ha!) so that I can find the best place for myself and the kids.

Because really, I refuse to limit myself. In the past, I believed so many lies about who I was and what I actually had to offer that I lived as though I were in a prison. It certainly felt like it at times. Nobody else’s fault except my own. I chose to listen and allow certain things to take root in my heart and my head. Even if someone else was saying them, and they were wrong for saying them, at some point you have to recognize that you and only you are responsible for yourself, your reactions and your choices.

So every time I face a challenge now, I remind myself of how far I have come and what I have walked through. The sky literally is the limit. Every hardship I have ever faced has nothing killed me yet, so I take that as an indicator that there is work still to be done and changes that can be made.

Painful experiences do not equal a death sentence.

They provide opportunities for growth and expansion and new experiences.

They provide a change of perspective and a greater understanding of those around you.

Empathy has been huge for me. Also, being more open to exposing my more tender and sensitive self as opposed to locking that part away for fear of being betrayed or harmed or manipulated again.

Loving someone else, something I could not even consider three years ago, is a real possibility.

Story telling and writing works that can be published and used for good and the benefit of others.

Making more money and providing for my teens.

Living on my own. Being single. Not having to answer to anyone. The liberation that comes from that. Autonomy is so important to me. And I am getting that now. I love that I don’t have to ask anyone’s permission to go out for a weekend trip with my girlfriends or go out to dinner with someone. Or heck, take a dang nap when I am tired or just need alone time.

The sky’s the limit on dreams as well. What I see possible in my head wasn’t really a possibility in the past. The only one who is holding me back from achieving them is me.

Little old me.

Just not going to be an option for myself anymore. I refuse to limit. I am grateful. Let’s not assume that because I desire more for my life that I am ungrateful for what I have now. Everything I have been able to work toward or currently have, I have busted my butt for.

I am so grateful.

But I know what is posible for myself and for my family. So I refuse to settle.

I settled for a long time. I am just not going to settle anymore. Neither should you.

The sky’s the limit, friends. Cheers to running, dreaming, working toward those dreams and goals swirling around in your head and heart. You got this.
