We tend to, (in our human nature), immediately make judgments. I posted on Instagram “Unleash Your Fierce”. I had makeup on, zebra print on and encouraged to “Unleash Your Fierce”. Someone approached and challenged me about it. She wanted to ask about it because she felt it seemed out of alignment with my other posts and sends a different message. That you need to wear makeup and make yourself beautiful. Normally you are about loving yourself and being yourself. Loving who you are and being who you are in this world.
My initial reaction was to remove the post. Then I found out this person didn’t even read the post. Judgment is one of the most awful things that we do to each other instead of just embracing, accepting and loving each other in all situations. The greatest power is the power of love in any situation. Yet it is in our human nature to make judgments. Sometimes the judgments are not very kind. I almost didn’t want to talk about it because I like to stay positive.
I came across this quote in a book called “The Beautiful Truth”.
“And one day she discovered she was fierce and strong and full of fire. And that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears.”
This quote spoke to me so deeply. That is the way I would love for all of us to live our lives. To have our passion and our faith be so much bigger than the fears that may lay before us. We find the courage to live in the fullness of who we are. We get this one big, beautiful life and we really need to make the most of it. It takes boldness. It takes fierceness. That’s a part of who we are from the inside out. The beauty is that we get to express it in any way we want!
