I’ve reached the point where I no longer feel afraid in my skin. I can embrace myself as an aspiring artist, teacher, dancer, androgynous, black, female Boss on a mission to be sucessful in all I do.
I’ve dealt with the pain of rejection, heartbreak, and loneliness for my whole life. In the end, it’s the reason I am strong enough to stand on my own.
So be afraid of who? For what?
I didn’t move to NY to live afraid. I came here because I am Ready to give it all to live my dream. I have the confidence that I can do whatever I set my mind to.
What’s the worst that can happen to me? Someone thinks I am untalented? Oh well, I know who I am and I have nothing to prove. The only competition is against myself. The only limitations are my own beliefs.
I’ve got to get through this. Lately, I’m finding myself frustrated with every part of my life.
With Dance, I can’t seem to stop judging and comparing myself to the people around me. I feel like a stand out because of my age and race…My insecurities are affecting my confidence and my attitude. I just want to be successful so badly that I’m pressuring myself and expecting too much too soon. I’m feeling stressed instead of having fun expressing myself.
I really need to relax.
Don’t worry about what people think. This is Your Daily Walk.
It’s better to be rejected by Humans than rejected by God.
God’s will is the greatest force in my life. God is leading and directing me into my destiny. I submit to God’s will. With my life in my own hands, things fall apart, but God’s ways are higher than mine. I can’t see all the answers, but God knows what’s best for me right now and in my future.
John 15:5-I am the Vine, You are the Branches. Those who remain in me and I in them will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
Trust. Believe. Receive. Shine
At first glance I may appear as the weakest link, but I see something they don’t see… There’s something different about me and I’m going to work it to my advantage! Shenise G.
I am only 25 years old, but it feels like I have lived many different lives. I have written and closed so many different chapters in my life. With each step of my journey, I strive to Know Myself, Love Myself and Be myself in all that I do.
And maybe they’ll like me and maybe they won’t, but I’m not going to hide.
I will not live in fear and shame.
I know who I am and I will not change to fit expectations.I will be myself even under pressure.
I owe that to myself. I owe nothing to you.
