Trusting in my Higher Power
Personal Development & Community

Why were you inspired to do this?

I have had so much guilt, hate and self loathing in my life and needed to trust someone, who better than my higher power.

What were 3 things you did to make this happen?

Reading. Blogs, self improvement articles, books and websites all summed up were telling me the same thing.

I needed to trust someone and after being paralyzed of fear to go out and actually confide in yet another person.

I finally told myself that I must be stronger than my fear.

How did you feel once you had accomplished this?

I am still afraid but as I continue to tell myself that my love for my higher power is greater and my love for myself must be as well, I also continue to believe these words, thoughts and prayers. I am a wonderful person and if I do a little for myself each day I know I will be successful. This is an ongoing process and I have nowhere to go but up. As I am getting older I realize more and more the things that are most important. It does not matter if no one helps with household chores, I enjoy the way I feel having a clean house.

It's difficult to clear a path to your future, I know. And the roadblocks are more prevalent than they should be. But deciding to believe in yourself is the crucial piece, I think, to creating the life you dream of and deserve. It's like being on airplane that's in trouble. First you put on YOUR oxygen mask, then help everyone else with theirs. I admire this goal very much. Good luck to you!
