As I was listening to an inspirational message today I heard this statement, and thought it very fitting as we go into the new year ” you don’t get what you want you get who you are”.
Many of us are making our resolutions and declarations, this is the year, this is the year that I will be different, I will loose the weight, go to school, accomplish that goal that seems to keep eluding me, but will we really?
I ask the question; why do you think this year will be any different than the last? What are you setting in place that will make you different than who you were, because as the statement says, “you don’t get what you want, you get who you are. Question is who are you?
Is who you are a result of who someone else has stated you are or would ever be, or the label that has branded you for life? If who you are now is not who you want to be then find out what you need to do to become what you want.
Don’t allow someone else’s opinion of you become your reality. You were created by an intelligent God who made you in his image and gave you all the tools to reflect his glory, you are only limited by you, who you see yourself to be. Be Empowered, get the tools you need to help change your life, get involved with people and programs that will help you to be who you need to be to get where you want to go. The new year is a fresh start to reflect, assess, regroup, recharge and go forth. Change who you are and BE…
