I have ALWAYS known there was more for me.
I have always BELIEVED that God had a plan for my life that was bigger than me.
I have ALWAYS felt a burning in my heart and that ache in my soul year after year of doing and achieving, but not FULLY grabbing hold of that ONE thing that I KNEW was my 'Glory Zone'.
It's like I've had glimpses of it, dreams about it, close encounters with it, but never that ACTUALIZATION moment. So, I picked up this book called 'Believe Bigger' written by my mentor and friend, Marshawn Evans Daniels. I had high hopes and expectations that written within the pages would be the wisdom and the missing pieces of the puzzle I had been constructing for over two decades. Surely if anyone could direct me to what I was missing it would be her. She not only learned to believe bigger for herself, but she has helped thousands of women, just like me, believe bigger too! So I cracked open the pages of that life transforming book on a brisk, pre-spring morning flying high on a four hour flight to Los Angeles, and boy did I have a moment! Several "Ah Ha!" moments. Can you say AWAKENING! It wasn't that I had been doing anything WRONG, per say, but I had allowed my lived experiences, past, and current traumas, to taint my belief in me! When I tell you that I arrived to LA with a different swag about myself, whew!
I had to stop by the restroom, take a long look at myself in the mirror, and say, "Hello Chi, nice to meet you. You are awesome!" Can you say mental SHIFT! I turned 40 this past December, which I've looked forward to for many reasons. This year is significant in so many ways for me. Two of the most significant are sending my youngest daughter off to college (making me an empty nester) and launching my lifelong dream that I had placed on the shelf many years ago until now. As I continue to read, write, and reflect while consuming the pages of Believe Bigger, I can feel the evolution of a woman who is not only ready to believe bigger for herself, but for my daughters, and all of those waiting for me to show up for them.
Are you ready to take the limits off? Believe Bigger!
