I’ve been writing consistently for over a year now. If you’ve read my Dealing to Healing story, you know I started with #SundaySermon on Sundays. I thought you might enjoy a throwback on Thursday. This one is one of my favorites.
Confession… I just recently listened to my first Podcast. I listened to an interview with Jane Fonda. She was asked why she left billionaire Ted Turner. To paraphrase and sum it up she said… Ted had childhood demons like all of us. She said however while Ted wanted to remain horizontal, she wanted to be vertical. She meant that she needed to grow and she just couldn’t stay and be in a stagnant state.
I so felt that in my soul! It just confirms that no matter who you are, how much money or power you have, or the title you possess that continuing to grow is your job. If you grow away from relationships, so be it. You can’t stay just because they don’t want to grow. Walking away is not because of them. It’s for you! It’s imperative that you love yourself more than others. Not in a narcissistic way but in a way that you become better to serve those around you and being the best human you can be. So note to self…if someone just wants to be horizontal and comfortable while you want to be vertical and grow, it’s ok. Do you boo! ❤️ #SundaySermon
