Stacie’s Journey: January 2012

With the holidays now mainly behind me, I look forward to the new year with excited expectations.  The last couple of months have been a real struggle for me –  I had to get really honest with myself and ask myself some tough questions:

 Why am I in this process? 

What am I afraid of? 

Why am I afraid of succeeding? 

The answers, once I took the time to actually sit down and answer them, were amazingly simple to find.  The first one was really simple:  Health.  The other two, I just need to know that the self thoughts I have been listening to for years are simply not to be believed.

I have lied to myself for years about how I look, how others have negatively perceived me, etc.  I am sure most of you know what I am talking about.  I realize I will simply have to work through some of that crap that was done/said to me years ago when I was really young.  I know now that I am a mature woman and I have the power and strength to take care of myself and my family and that is the truth that I focus on.  I thank the Lord for the opportunity and assistance to work through this stuff and to be who I really am made to be.

I pray for a year of great learning and changes for all of us.  Happy New Year!
