I have been silent long enough. I have been level to the ground long enough. Now is my time to rise above all the things that hold me down. Now is my time to become the person I was created to be. I can no longer use excuses or hide behind past hurts. I am no longer required to bow down to people's expectations of me. No one but God can know the fullest depth of my potential. And only God knows just how short I fall from maxing out that potential. I have an inkling of an idea, but God knows it ALL.
So now is my time. I embrace it. I eagerly look forward to the challenging, but promising, future. Not looking back. Not looking down. My chin is held high. My gaze is steady. My eyes are on the mark. I have survived the storms, and I'm coming out strong.
