The other day I woke up with the internal struggles of emotional baggage. I was fighting bronchitis and a sinus infection and had just gotten back from Mexico. I was worn out! Take into consideration that on these days, we may be more susceptible to feeling below par, maybe even entertain worthless and low self-esteem feelings. It was on this day that I found victory, faster than I had ever had before and that was because I have been so diligent with truth and awareness about heart and soul issues. It inspired me to write this to encourage you with a perspective of our daily challenges and the stance we need to take with them. Everyone has their own challenges, so when you read this, let it speak to you about yours. Being a “Warrior of Life” helps us stay alert and on guard!
Waste no time lamenting on finding a reason why some days we wake up feeling insecure and worthless, just know it happens too many of us. However, recognizing it quickly is imperative to fast action. Waste no time, instead call your “Warrior of Life” to action.
With war waging before us to ruin our day and dampen our mood, refuse to lose! Change your thoughts and push yourself forward into the day you chose to have. A “Warrior of Life” understands that perspective is everything!! Proper perspective knows the truth even if the truth feels different. For instance, when I put on brown tint sunglasses, it alters the color of the sky, but the sky is blue regardless of the glasses I’m wearing and that’s because we know the reality and truth of it!
The reality and truth of our identity is that we are worthwhile regardless of those who have planted the seeds of lies into our lives. And while we may battle this for years because of the deep wounds we’ve received, we must continually encourage ourselves and each other that it gets better and we get stronger, but only if we’re willing to apply ourselves to the task of becoming a “Warrior of Life”. Be diligent, alert and stand guard protecting what is most important – our heart, our mind and our soul! To do otherwise is to grow weary, lose heart and give up – and this is unnecessary defeat!
It is a single decision that stands between where you are now and becoming a “Warrior of Life”; and it is that everyday that we decide our stance for life! With training we become great at this task, eventually becoming quick to respond when danger presents itself. We come to realize that those deep emotional wounds that have penetrated the core of the heart, leaving an emotional scar are the area’s we watch carefully; always making sure the phantom pains of those scars don’t trick us into believing we haven’t overcome them!
Are you ready to live this foundational truth and become a “Warrior of Life”? Because when we do, the battles we fight become mini wars that are easily conquered and then with much joy, we find ourselves standing in the middle of glorious victory!
