“One of my absolute favorite words is “no”. No, I am not available. No, I would not like to go with you there. No, I am not happy with the treatment given to me. No, I am not satisfied with the level of communication demonstrated. No. No is such a powerful word, it’s a boundary inducing word and it allows us to control our environment. A lot of us have or are currently submitting to abusive behavior because we were or are afraid to say “no.” ©️Simone Holloway, 2020.
“Builders are consistent because when we are building something new or remodeling what’s been built before, we are steady and unchanging in nature. Builders don’t decide at the last minute that they are not going to complete their projects. Builders don’t waste money being indecisive. Builders don’t waste time being unsteady and lacking stability in thought. Builders are consistent, showing up each day at the same time ready to get the job done. “©Simone Holloway, 2020
Too often we live our lives based on the opinions, considerations, expectations and actions of others. WE are not called to live based on the lives of others, but we are called to have an adventure with our own lives and to live to the fullness of our God-given destiny. We have to come alive, whether those around us choose to do so or not.
