Today, I asked what I truly believe is a very important question.
To anyone out there reading this, I have a question I want you to think about. The question I want to ask you is, how would your life change if you knew what you were chasing? How much more fulfilled would you be if you had your goals set out for you, and how much easier would it be to focus on what matters when you know what things matter?
Prioritizing things in my life have helped me become a healthier, happier, and better person. Prioritizing your peace is so much important than most people understand, and let me ask you something—how would your life change if you could see it through the lens of your goals? How many toxic people would you stop chasing, and how much time would you save if you weren't aimless?
Often, we get in the deadly habit of chasing.
Sometimes it's a relationship, and a lot of times it's money. I can say with certainty that we don't need a lot of the things in our lives as much as we think we do. We don't need all the things we assume would fulfill us, and often, we make the mistake of seeking after things we don't need only to end up feeling empty inside. Stop looking for something to define yourself with. Define yourself! Only you know who you are, and only you can stop chasing and discover your true potential. Only you has the ability to transform you into the version of yourself you need to be, and only you can seek better for yourself. Don't take this message the wrong way, but I think that we often chase too much. The fact is, God never meant for us to chase. God never meant for us to lose ourselves in the process of chasing.
Instead of blindly hoping that something will bring you significance, take a step back and examine the true source of the void in your life. Let me ask you a question—do you really know who you are? Regardless of your circumstances, whether you have no material goods or you're extremely wealthy, all of us have experienced voids in our lives.
When I found Christ, I was saved from chasing. I began un-programming myself to stop thinking about what to search for, and instead put my faith in faith itself. Your bank account isn't faithful, and your dream won't always feel faithful to you. I know a lot of you might hate me for saying this, but I need to tell you something important. You already have everything you need inside of you, and while I'm all about self improvement, I also believe in self-love. It's time for you to treat yourself better, because if you're tearing yourself down from the inside, no one can help you?
It all starts with you.
