The Truth about Finding You!

I attended a MAD meeting today and for those who dont know what it is you can visit mymadlife.org to find out more! The topic for this particular meeting was growing in your thinking. I was asked the question, "What was one thing that challenged you in 2018? (Or something along those lines." My answer was that I learned how to find Felisha! I spent the last year learning so much about myself and how I fit into this world.

For most of my life, I was defined by others. This caused me to have very low confidence and low self esteem. I missed out on my beauty and gifts for a long time! "Friends" dressed me or talked about what I wore so I would change it. I suppressed my talents to suit others pride and when I even attempted to do something good, it was shut down by me due to the fear of how it would be perceived. I became comfortable living in a box and I forced myself to think it was normal...... until I realized it wasn't. I was dying on the inside and I knew something had to change. In my heart I knew I was worth so much more.


I took my health more serious and utilized natural health and wellness products. I was able to lose 30 lbs and I made consistency my best friend. I challenged myself by detoxing my life. My husband was a huge supporter by keeping me accountable. It took some hard days but I was very pleased with my results. I took the attention off of my weight and put it on my confidence. I was feeling better on the inside and it was showing on the outside.


Looking back, April - December were some of the best months of my life. I realized I was very talented and gifted. I was able to become who I wanted to be without the help of the folks I mentally thought I needed. I was now surrounded by people who honestly had my best interest at heart and there was nothing and I mean NOTHING that could hold me back.


Fast forward to now...I am at a place in my life where now that I know who I am, I am learning how to retain my joy. Everyday I face something that makes me try to question my discovery. I am more driven which makes my tolerance for negativity short so I am more observant of who I allow to be in my space. I am more aware of my investments so I spend more time with God, my family, and close friends. I keep my eyes focused on his plan for my life and I flow with it daily. Some days are smooth sailing others are bumpy but either way we stay on the road.


I want to encourage you all who feel like you don't know who you are. You may be like me who allowed others to dress you up with their words and tear you down with their actions. Maybe, like me, you are comfortable in a box where you are retained and others dictate what you can and cant do. I want to tell you that the only reason you are having this done to you is because you don't understand your own strength and gifts. Others see your good qualities before you do. Others know your power when you don't. This is why they work overtime to keep you down and depressed so you will never tap into them...AND when you start telling yourself those same lies they dance around you knowing that it will make it even more difficult for you to break free!


Today, decide that your tired of being boxed in and get to know you. Start with who created you and go from there. The Word says that you are fearfully and wonderfully made! The GOD who MADE you said that so this should mean a lot! After you search out the word and see how God defines you, then it will make it easy to define yourself! One tip is take every negative thing said to you and REVERSE it. If people said you will never be anything in life...say you are successful! Say you are more than what they think you are! YOU are bold and confident and you will be somebody! Affirm it, believe it, then create it! Every person who has influence and is successful used those same words to push them into who they are today! Take that negativity and turn it into your POWER!
