So….before you continue reading, I just ask that you go gently on me. This is my first blog post ever and I know the page is rough and incomplete, that you who don’t know me have no background….I apologize. That will all come, I promise! I just wanted to get this first post out, as it came to me with such power and I just felt I needed to jump into the world of blogging before my courage weakened.
I just got off the phone with my friend. We were discussing my family and our most recent challenge….. my husbands cut in hours and a possible foreclosure on our home. I expressed my feelings of peace and my faith in a loving Heavenly Father, that He was hearing and answering our prayers and that all would be well. That this challenge was some how a blessing in disguise and that I just couldn’t see all the pieces fit together yet. As I hung up the phone, I sat and pondered on our conversation for a bit and a thought came to my mind…..”you have a champions heart.” I answered in thought….”what? really?” and then asked myself “what is a champion?” The answers began to flood my mind and I began to write. So…. what you will be reading is the frantic writings of an untrained mind….haha!
What IS a champion? I thought, a champion is someone who overcomes great odds to accomplish an almost insurmountable goal or task. A champion is someone who never gives up, perseveres against all odds, has been an underdog at some time, has had extreme opposition and battled with self confidence. A champion is someone who has a dream or goal, believes in that dream and doesn’t let anyone or anything deter from attaining that goal and never stops working towards the dream.
I believe we all have a champions heart! A heart that believes, a heart that is driven, a heart that burns with a yearning to be something more, to make a difference for good. We all came to earth with a champions heart, its who we really are! We just need to be reminded. Sometimes we just need someone we love and respect to look into our eyes and hearts and speak with power of truth….”I see you, I believe in you!” When we hear those words with our hearts and feel the power, sincerity and truth behind them, the light will turn on again inside. Where there was once darkness and a loss of remembering, there will be a small stirring and we will begin to believe in ourselves again.
This is where my journey begins with you, on this blog……the awakening of the champion inside. This is the journey I want to share with you, that I want you to be a part. I want to be, what my friend has been for me….the person that says, “I don’t care where you’ve been, what you’ve done or haven’t done. I see YOU, your heart, your worth, your strength. I believe in you and your ability to overcome and to make a difference. I believe in your ability to achieve and do great things.”
