I’ve been thinking about what type of impact we have to make. Life is so full! Sometimes it is so hard to listen and understand our mission. I’ve been reading books and listening to podcasts of people doing what they are passionate about. It is a blessing! I’ve decided that I want that life as well. Why not? I need to get out of my comfort zone, let the fear go, and pursue Gods gift for me. Of course, it’s not going to be easy. But I do not want to live my life not doing what it is I’m called to do. Heck no! I have to let go of my fear, believe in my dreams, and fight for it! Do you know how it is to feel that there’s more to come? It is so exciting, isn’t it? We need to truly believe that it can come true, get out of our comfort zone, put in the hard work, and just let go. I love to write on my blog, but it makes me feel extremely exposed. At the same time, it is a part of my process, and it’s so beautiful cause this is who I am. And because I’ve been transformed by my pain, I do not accept anything less. I am who He says I am, and my happiness is to know that God has come to me, even if it is to write upon my heart, and to remind me who He is!
I am so blessed to be in here, in my blog. I am right where I am supposed to be. I saw a quote that says, ” May you attract someone who speaks your language, so you don’t have to spend a lifetime translating your soul.” I feel that! I found my tribe. All of us speaks the same language. I got so many inspirations and support to continue following my heart, even if I am still struggling with my second language. It surprised me! Guess what? I was worried like crazy! Thoughts came to my mind as if I get bad comments, or anybody makes fun of my grammar mistakes since the blog is for writers?
Then who am I? I am a dreamer, WRITING down and sharing my journey and what I have learned so far.
So, what does it means? YES, girl! You are a WRITER! I am a human being and a writer in construction. Like all of us! There’s the beginning for everyone and everything. I am learning, changing, falling in love with the journey, and being just me, embracing my calling.
I was born in a small town in Brazil, and it’s been three years since I moved to the USA, and I didn’t speak English at all! Then my first year I had to work as a house cleaner, and at the time I was living in a bedroom that I rented per $500 per month. I didn’t have time to study since I was working from 5 am to 9 pm, but I still did online classes after work. I started to get exhausted, and I knew God had better plans for me! When I decided to quit my job. I started working as a nanny, and this family was a God gift for me! Later I’ll talk better about them. I started my English classes in the evening, and it was the opportunity that I needed. I worked with them per one year, when my heart ( God) started to say, time to move on! I did! My heart hurt when I had to leave, but that’s life. Assistant teacher, was my next work. Why am I saying it? Because every single day God reminds me that when we believe in Gods plan, He opens the doors where there’s no door, He does the impossible. I have been working in my projects, and today I did my first project presentation in my business class. For many people, it can be nothing. But to me, it is just the begging! When I look back in my life, I have been seeing Gods work in my family, me, and my life, I have awakened new curiosities, new knowledge, and the most important, I awakened in faith. He gave life and gave me back the dreams that were dead. Every single day I see, when God is in it, there’s no limit!
No journey is going to be easy, or comfortable. In the beginning, we want to quit, and we don’t know exactly how we are going to do it. It happens for everyone, and for everything we are about to achieve. It can be a diet, exercise, lifestyle, business, process to change mindset or beliefs. No matter what! Whatever you decide to do, I recommend you start small. Small disciplines have consistently lead to big results over time. Find your balance! Mind, Body, and Soul – Embracing as a whole will create a better YOU! Then when you know who you are, you’ll know what to do!
Do you ever feel overwhelmed? I do! All the time. I have to improve my English ( Yep! I’m from Brazil and I still struggling with my English) I have to get a better job, I should be a better person, and the list goes on. On the other hand, I learned in my intense last three years that everything has the right time. And what do we have to do until the right time arrives? Pray, never give up, be patient, face your fear, silence the noises, hear your heart, and enjoy the process. In the end, we’ll see how beautiful was the process, and the actions that we had wouldn’t happen if we hadn’t felt enough pain to change. Pain is powerful!
I read a quote last week, “Courage doesn’t mean we are never afraid, courage is simply daring to take action despite our fear”( Ruth Soukup) It is so true! I’ve been living this intensely in the past three years. Even when I’m scared. Even if the voices in my mind insists to say I’m not good enough. Even if I don’t know exactly what I am doing but, when we give God the steering wheel of our life, things take the right direction. And you know what? It takes courage to let God take control of the steering wheel. The control that we think we have so then, we’re ready to enjoy the process. We find love, peace and, wisdom. There’s no better place to be!Continue reading “Give The Steering Wheel!”
Since I decided to start my blog, I thought to myself: “What am I doing?” “Who do I think I am that someone wants to read my journey or “ what do I have to say?” I’m not famous or a business person ( Not yet! Yep, I’m a dreamer). At the same time I feel in my heart that I have to! So here I am. I understood that I should share what I have learned so far. If a soul is touched, God’s purpose in my life is fulfilled.
I’ll share my messy and beautiful journey. How I learned that when I thought I was weak, I was strong! I have big dreams, and I have so much faith. She Got Wings is about me, you, us! Just let your soul shine!
