For a time in my life, I hated where I lived. To all those who still currently live in their home town can definitely relate to this. I have always been a person that never liked to stay stagnant, stuck in one place. But as we know not everyone around us has the same kind of desire.
It got to a one point where I wanted to leave town and never come back. I got so fed up with my surroundings and the people, like seriously. I felt so alone and so discouraged because I felt like there was no one who wanted to do the things I was doing and no one to relate to. I was so much in my feelings that I started even planning to leave town, all because of other people. I gave myself a year to do it.
But God sure has a way of tearing those emotional gods down! He made me realize that everything He does is strategic and I am where I am location wise because I am suppose to be here at this time. When you find that no one around you desires to grow, take it upon yourself to find someone that inspires you. In return its going to cause you to desire to inspire others.
Prov 13:20 “Become wise by walking with the wise;hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.
Find people to follow that is wise, who is further in life than you, who has been where you are, has gotten out and has moved to do greater things! I believe this is crucial in life because if you don’t know what it looks like to be further than where you are now then how does one know where to go or even know that they can make it out. How can we know what a healthy marriage looks like if all the people around us has had a failed one. I follow those who is worth following, who will bring my life up a notch. And it shows on my social media accounts. I have noticed that my perception about life has increased. I realize that even though I live in one city, my life and purpose is much greater then these city limits.
We must begin to think beyond what we can see and feel or the enemy will surely have his way with us. This whole year I have made a personal effort to enjoy where I am and enjoy those who inspire me because I know I am called to be someones inspiration 🙂 Changing my mindset has really changed my life, and it’s definitely going to change yours. Check out who inspires me.
