What if you are who you dream about being?
So, who are you dreaming to be? As a little girl, my dream was to be a teacher. I would stand at my child-size chalkboard teaching imaginary children. I would spend hours writing math problems, correcting grammar and spelling in sentences. My brother participated from time to time. He wasn’t too keen on me being the teacher. As a teacher, I just knew it was my job to tell him what to do. I’m sure you can visualize how that played out. I outgrew my child-size chalkboard. From there, I graduated to using my bedroom closet door, unbeknownst to my parents. Time marched on, and I found myself struggling in school. Mom often reminded me that my brother never had to study. She said, “You work hard and only get average grades.” Eventually, my dream of being a teacher faded. Or did it?
Let me ask you, what kind of beliefs you think might have manifested from the combination of educational struggles and my mom’s words? You guessed it, “I’m NOT good enough, and I’m NOT smart enough.” My dream-stopper indeed.
Today I know that every heart has the ability to rise above beliefs.
Learning to recognize, acknowledge and connect in order to get clear is my go-to way to push through the “I’m NOT good enough, and I’m NOT smart enough beliefs supporting my subconscious ego. When I experience an unalignment of my body, mind and heart, my conscious body listens to those toxic beliefs of my subconscious mind and in essence, I shut down.
So, what happened to the little girl who dreamed of someday being a teacher? My classroom may not be as I pictured. However, God was preparing me then for the classroom of His dreams; He already knew who I was, and who I was dreaming to be. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This teacher’s classroom may be one individual or a room full. And what I know is that each one is unique and extraordinary, because you are who you are.
I truly believe you are the person you dream about being! Be empowered from an honoring place to embrace your self-worth. I will vow to support you in recognizing the present, acknowledging beliefs of the past and connecting to navigate through living into your future.
