A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

I said this 6 years ago. Who knows why. New job? Relationship issues? Hurricane Sandy? . .
Look, nobody is trying to tell you to change your past. Lord knows, we'd all try if we could, right? Take the wrong job, the wrong ring, the wrong phone call, the wrong risk. But, it's all gotten you here. We start, today, to do what feels right. We start, today, to rise. I remember once quoting Vince Lombardi in my High School year book and immediately regretting it, the minute I saw it. "It's not how many times you fall, it's how many times you get back up." How cliche, right? 6 other kids had some version of that under their photos.
But, holy shit... it's not how many times you fall. It's how many times you get back up. Nothing could be more true. .
My father, in his infinite wisdom would tell me when I was a child... afraid to go to sleep, I'd be vomiting and crying... because of the bully in my class who called me fat and punched me in the stomach... the teacher who made me feel so stupid when I knew it wasn't true... I just couldn't figure out how to organize my brain, yet. He said "Tomorrow, life will look different. Tonight, you are alone. You are scared. Even I get scared at night, when all I have are my thoughts. But, go to sleep. Tomorrow, you will see that you were scared over nothing. You can do it." .
We all have the right to be scared. But, pops is right. We are all phoenixes. We are all reborn every single day. Every day is a new opportunity to start over. The sun shines, the air rushes into our lungs, and we can be whomever we want to be. . .
I need to stop saying "I always do this." . . "I always DID this. I will do things differently, today."
One of the many ways people try to control you is through fear. But we are taught from the word of God, ‘we’ve not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind’. The early church was faced with persecution (false imprisonments, loss of property, public humiliation, and even death) for believing in the person of Jesus Christ. However, as discouraging as this tactic of bullying through intimidation discouraged them, they kept spreading the truth wherever they went and it benefited others. Doing the right thing, especially in today’s world takes a lot of courage. We see courage throughout the word of God: Esther the Queen, David the young sheep herder, and the three young Hebrew boys. What we learn from them is regardless of your position or age, no one is immune to fear, but we have God on our side so we can take down strongholds. I learned many years ago, ‘fear is a mind killer, you must face it and let it pass through’. If fear paralysis you, know you’ll never move till you look it in the eye.
“But Saul was going everywhere to destroy the church. He went from house to house, dragging out both men and women to throw them into prison. But the believers who were scattered preached the Good News about Jesus wherever they went.” — Acts 8:3-4 NLT
