Balance - Mind. Body. Soul.
Envy is defined as, “a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else's possessions, qualities, or luck.”
How I have obtained my possessions, qualities, and perceived ‘luck’ is not ‘luck’. It’s actually favor from my Savior and Lord over my life. Skeptics may question it but my reference point for that statement is rooted in trials and circumstances that nearly killed me so I respectfully don’t have room in my reality for your skepticism.😘
Every possession came from HARD work and every quality came from HEART work. As a result, I just keep on trusting God and keep on believing God because there is far more envy in this world that many would care to acknowledge.
Envy works many ways but if you are self aware, you can spot it and hopefully check it. How often do you see an image or video and the person has something positive to say and you refuse to click the ❤️ because you don’t want to offer anything positive to the post? You feel ‘some kinda way’ that the person is actually ‘doing’- which has nothing to do with the person. When you see someone you expect to be destroyed by a difficult life moment, but instead they rise, how happy are you for them? Envy is sneaky.
I can’t know every rationale for the weight of the world but I know how grateful I am to be kept in a world where being lost was all I knew at one point in my life. It’s easy to hide behind the mask of religion to claim healing. It’s not easy to heal yourself and requires a multi-level desire with a ‘whole person’ mindset. It requires faith to heal but if you are in a constant state of distrust, it’s easy to put your faith in yourself instead of the balance approach necessary to break unhealthy habits, unlearn false beliefs, and embody a transparent growth plan.
If people around you resent the fact that you have good things in your life, are pursuing good things, or haven’t allowed the the difficult things to keep you down; there is nothing you can do about it.
I choose to live with gratitude and humility for the goodness bestowed upon me because no matter how people feel, how does God feel about how you regard His gifts to you? That’s far more important than the opinions of naysayers. Celebrating oneself is healthy and necessary because it teaches you not to seek it from man. If people want to tell you to stand in the background, it’s usually because they are comparing your light to theirs instead of simply letting both lights shine. Everyone has a light that is beautiful but the ego and pride will have you see it as a threat instead of a gift.
I believe that when you carry and store love in your heart for people, God carries favor for you.
It is already understood that challenges are expected and Lord knows my ‘snatch game’ but as I see myself with clear eyes, I only wish the best for those around me.
Make no mistake though, I haven’t met a person alive who works harder than me and this season of life lands differently because I get to put all the hard-work on my business, philanthropic, and personal goals.
It feels amazing to grow, be free, and believe God for all that is purposed for me. In my opinion, if we are all doing that, we have no time to set envy on someone else.
Healed - “(of a person or treatment) cause (a wound, injury, or person) to become sound or healthy again.”
Grateful for the peace, progress, and prosperity of being whole again.
