It is amazing when I look back at things that have happened in my life and wonder how I went through them. For the longest time in the life I was a very anxious person and got to the level of panic.
Woke up today not knowing what am feeling and decided to call my friend with no reason. One thing you should know about me, I don’t like being on the phone before noon, she was surprised I called.
I was feeling anxious realized that’s the feeling I was having and I told her, to my surprise she remembered she had a dream about me being very anxious and tearing up in her dreams. In the dreams she told me God sees you and He’s got you, you are not alone.
God is personal
Having no idea that God spoke to my friend through her dream to speak to me, I called her. God made sure I know that He knows me personally and knows that my friend will let me know not to worry and trust in Him.
I want you and I to know that whatever we are going through God has us, He is telling you too that you’re not alone.

What is it that you’ve always wanted to do but think you are not good enough? Goals and dreams is all we’ve been taught to have since we were young. What if we forgot about them and just do things that we want right now.
There’s pressure all around us of doing perfect work, take perfect pictures, perfect post. Everything that we put out we end up not enjoying because we want it to be perfect than have substance.
You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.
Recently my best friend and I started a podcast,Unscripted of course we recorded as a playful thing doing around the house. We’ve always spoke about recording podcasts and publishing, we’ve always had really informative conversations among ourselves at home and thought of sharing. Mind you we are not professional speakers but we recorded as a trial run to see how we sound and just dabble basically. We put it off after recording probably over a month and one day I decided in the middle of the night to publish the work that we definitely knew was not perfect. The feedback was great and of course most of the feedback was positive criticism helping us to do better on our next podcast. But what was amazing is that some people told us they were inspired to go ahead and start their own podcast since they’ve always wanted to. With the terrible work that we put out in terms of content direction someone got the courage that I can’t do worse than this lemme go for it too. So my friend I am telling you right now, do as bad of a job as possible and have fun. DO NOT PRESSURE YOURSELF, just start and from the’re you’ll learn and get better. Don’t aim for perfection, aim for first step.
Ready to fail
Failing seems like a sin that should never happen to us and yet we still do fail. We are caught up in this state of mind of doing great and perfect work that we forget ourselves.
I am guilty of this, when I start a new venture I want to do well so bad that I end up not doing it or giving up halfway. Because my mind was already set on good results than it could fail.
Imagine if we all were ready to fail on any adventure we are getting into, knowing that if anything it can’t get any worse because that is what you’re ready for.
Yes, dream but remember to not lose yourself in the process. Be ready to fail and pick yourself up to fail again until you don’t. I recommend you read Chasing Failure by Ryan Leak where he discuss and elaborates how falling short sets you up for success. I didn’t really get it at first when i saw the title but after reading it made sense.
This past weekend, I had this conversation a lot: losing focus. If you look back to what you aspired to be when you were young and how motivated you were, and life kicks you in the butt and think there’s no way I can achieve what my younger self wanted – I want to encourage you and myself not to lose focus on our dreams, whether we’ve taken a lot of detours making our journey longer than it needed to be, now is the time to get back on the right path. Driving at the right speed, don’t try to over speed thinking you’ll arrive faster, else you may just end up having an accident. Look around you before you start driving, look in the rearview mirror when driving but do not go back. When we lose our focus, our minds get lost as well and we start feeling like there’s no purpose to life. Let’s keep our eyes focused on the road and knowing that eventually our destination will be revealed.
