" I belong here", a phrase that has entered my mind quite a bit over the past couple of months. It is a comforting thought. It usually pops in my head under stressful situations.
It started early winter when I was trail running at night. Trying to overcome that fear, (which was a successful venture), reminding myself that I was created to enjoy the creation around me. Reminding me, that I was created to be who I am at that moment in time. To fulfill my goals at that moment in time. Fear of what others might think or other's fears should not hold me back.
I belong here, when I'm feeling discouraged,
I belong here, when I'm feeling rejected
I belong here, when I'm not fast enough, cool enough, hip enough, cute enough...... enough is enough.
It is something I have struggled with since....well, since I can remember. And I'm sure we all have and still do. That fear of rejection, is what sometimes drives us.
But, what if we belonged here? Our perspective would change and we would still be driven to our goals, but fueled by passion, rather than fear.
I belong here, and so do you!
