I will be all I can be.

I must...

pray fervently.
live and breathe in love.
give God glory and thanks.
smile more.
speak up more.
give out more hugs.
lift up others.
think optimistically.
set myself aside.

I cannot...

feel low about myself.
feed off jealousy.
host bitterness.
hide my feelings.
glare or scowl
feel enraged.
set myself first.

I've been distracted from my personal goals lately. I must be a better me, the best me God has intended for me to be; I've been selfish, lowly, worldly and pessimistic. I've hung onto bitterness and jealousy too long. I've worried pointlessly, and haven't had faith in God enough, or others enough. I have to keep the light and love in my eyes, and keep going out and shining that light and love. I cannot give up this goal, this task, God has for me. I want to be a better daughter in Christ, daughter to my parents, sister to my brother... I want to be a better friend, a better girlfriend, a better employee, a better student, a better citizen. I'm ready to spread more love and encouragement, and dive into a recommitment with Christ. I'm ready to inspire and lift up others around me.

I can only do it through Christ, and here it starts again and continues on even stronger than ever.

I'm ready.
