Embarking on a new journey can be extremely terrifying. Terrifying to the point that you might find yourself wanting to go back to what’s comfortable, also known as your comfort zone. If true growth comes from being uncomfortable, then how could you ever grow to your full potential?
As I take small steps outside of my comfort zone, I’m starting to realize that everything I’ve prayed for is starting to manifest. I’m not going to lie, it’s been quite scary for me. As much as I thought that I was ready to receive these blessings, I’m having second thoughts. In other words, I’m a bit fearful that I’m going to be pushed more and more from my comfort zone.
Truth be told, I’m in a great space mentally and physically, which allows me to put forth an effort in embracing all of my answered prayers, but it’s just the fear that somehow sneaks up on me and alters my thinking. My mind tries to convince me that everything that I’ve prayed for is too much for me to handle, but my intuition and faith reminds me that it’s time to push forward with no looking back.
I finally feel that this is really my time. It’s my time to shine and push towards this next chapter of my life. I can honestly say that my life is going in the right direction that I’ve been dreaming of for so long. I have more healthy and loving relationships. I am engaging in healthier habits. I found the courage to push through with this music journey of mine. And thanks to me seeking therapy, I feel as if I have gained a better sense of self, which I am truly grateful for. I couldn’t be more satisfied with all that has happened to me over the past few months, and I know that God still isn’t done with me. I just have to remain focused and continue to trust in something greater than myself.
I encourage everyone out there to never give up on your faith, and trust that everything you prayed for and desire will soon become yours. Even if your circumstances are far from what you want out of life, you have to believe in better days. As I said in my debut single, Found Purpose (Dangerous), “it took a while for me to get where I’m at”. Change doesn’t happen overnight and it took a very long time for my prayers to start manifesting. However, one thing I didn’t do is lose faith, and I’m challenging you to do the same.
Til this day, I still haven’t gotten everything that I’ve prayed for, but I know that it will be here one day. I just have to continue believing and remain patient. I hope that you do the same; keep believing and pushing through. Your hopes and dreams will definitely become your reality.
