Things I Have Learned

Sometimes - many times actually - as your life is going on, someone viciously comes by and tries to break your stride.

I used to be the type of person to get all broken up over what people thought of me.

That has all changed.

Now I don’t give anyone the power to break my stride. I allow God to nudge me, but not people with transparent motives and attempts at manipulation.

I make a decision not to be broken, again.

I might let it bother me for a while, a short while, and I might instinctively think of revenge for a brief moment, but that’s all the power they get.

Then I’m back in the game. And their true colors are but a mere blur behind me.

A green blur.

And I am loving the road ahead.

Theresa, I love this! I can learn much from you...MUCH...by simply adopting this. Thanks so much for the wisdom and words to live by.

Me, too. Not allowing others to have that kind of power over me is such an incredible thing to learn. Good for you!!
