Not too soon after I started listening the sister on the line was promoting Unstoppable 2015 and while she did this she explained why it was titled 2015 when it was already out now...what I gathered from her explanation was that she wanted women to claim greatness for 2015 now. She went on to say other things but I sat on my couch and ruminated over that one statement "claim greatness for 2015"
My mind raced over how this statement applied to soo many aspects of my life. I have always felt rushed...not by outside influences but by inside pressures...I'm 27 years old and I should be this far along in my career, my bank account should have this much money in it, I should own a house, I should be in a relationship that's going somewhere, I shouldn't be overweight anymore...so on and so forth...but when I heard that statement "Claim Greatness for 2015" it relieved me...
~Why Shalon do you feel like everything has to be perfect and set in stone right now??
~Why can't you use this time now to prepare yourself for things to come??
I realized I can and I will. I have learned so much about myself this past year and instead of belittling the lessons and relishing in how that attempt didn't work out. I can look forward to utilizing them in the future. Some of my goals I didn't quite reach but the tools I used to try are still there...and maybe I just need to figure out how to use them differently next time around.
It also brought me peace to know that I am a work in progress and it's ok to be that. I'm not sure that I would like it if I had everything figured out and set in stone right now....that would be a long life of monotony and if there's one thing I can't stand it's monotony...so this is me claiming my greatness for 2015. Thank you Heal a Woman Heal a Nation for that message last night.
