Fearless.. When I think of this word I think of the brave girl who sees no limits to what she can accomplish with the Lord on her side. I think often times, we see being free of fear as something your either born with or your not. But, I think that mentality is so far from the truth. I think being fearless is a choice. Every single day, I must set my mind to believe that I can accomplish everything that is set before me, good or bad.
I love how life brings changes and new seasons. But, just being real...sometimes the "newness" and changes can be a little daunting. As some of you may know, my husband and I recently made the choice for me to move boldly into my next dream( I'm learning at 30 that dreams should never stop). In October of this year, I will say goodbye to 11 years of the creative beauty world. Still saying it and even writing it just doesn't seem real. But, I know it is time to take the bold leap and move forward! This year has brought exciting new opportunities as I move on with jewelry designing. My dream is not to be the next well known jewelry designer or to overwhelm myself with the opportunities of succeeding, but, to continually be Annie.. The girl who has a heart to touch everyone with whatever gift God places in her hands for the season. And in this season, it's jewelry. I am so thankful for new things and new times, but, as I said earlier it is a daily choice for me to be fearless and move boldly into my next step in life. Do I have moments of fear that try and hold me back? Of course! But, the secret is to do it anyway...I choose to do it afraid when it seems too much! I have found that when I fully give my gift and heart to The Father's will, he is able to flow through me as I shine bright in any arena he puts me in. I choose to rest in the beauty of knowing I don't have to be perfect or do anything perfect, because the perfect one lives within me every day. So today, CHOOSE to be fearless! Don't allow new opportunities and the "what if's" or "what's next" moments to bring anxious thoughts, but choose, to rest in the excitement of what's to come! Love you, friends! I hope my thoughts bring you encouragement!
