Taking a stand is living your standards. The seat of doubt gladly provides a cushion “Sit this one out.”

Others will comfort you with words of ease. Opportunities will come to occupy your time —to take your time.

Untangle yourself from other people’s drama. It’s a spider web restricting your forward movement. Don’t get caught in this energy drain. 

Mine your mind to keep these out: 1) Doubt, 2) Distraction, 3) Drama.

You will be standing alone, because no one is going to do what’s YOURS. It’s not for someone else, so don’t expect others to lift your load. “Suck it up, Buttercup!”

Because, in the end, it’s just a photo in my phone. Does it stay there?

Early on I said to my Sweet Jean if I didn’t do “this” I realized no one else would. I was asking myself “How important is this,” knowing there isn’t another person on my work team to move it along. It’s you Amy. And Jean simply says to me ”I think you’ll do it.” ???? 

I can still hear her words and the cadence of her voice. I vividly remember that phone call, I guess because there was emotion tied to it. My will. Her words. Our love.

Bring out whatever your “photo” is!

“I want to remind you to stir into flame the strength and boldness that is in you.” 2 Timothy 1:6
