STAND TALL

Recently, I’ve had to deal with a rather long term struggle:  Knowing who I am and feeling good about myself when others don’t seem to recognize or appreciate me.
The lesson that goes with this is, others’ assessment of me doesn’t matter when it comes to my identity.
or, as T. Cole-Whittaker  called the book he wrote in 1988,
“What you think of me is none of my business.”
(I think that should be on a T-shirt.)
Another lesson this calls to mind is that each of us can and needs to “stand tall.”  That means that I will respect and honor others;I will also speak the truth in love, even when it is to tell someone that I disagree.  I will state my needs and boundaries; I will keep my focus and stand on my own two feet.  I will pursue my dreams and goals with tenacity and courage.
What are your challenges?
This is a call
For you to stand tall!

  1. My biggest challenge right now is dealing with the limitations of a bad back. It’s so frustrating to not be able to get my new home organized. While sitting on my behind I have had a lot of time to reflect on my future and the realization that things I had planned on doing may never come to fruition. So it’s a process I have to work through…and Iwill stand tall.
