Because I can.
Because it is Monday and I wanted to start my week off with something from the heart. Something that will put a smile on my face when I look back at it in a few months. Because of that I write. I close my eyes and listen to every word. And I write.
Because I was given two hands. Two hands that are capable of anything. Two hands that I can put to use creating. Whatever is placed upon my heart. Whatever I see. Because of that I take action. Every day I do something. I try something. It may be little. And it may not always be right, but at least I am trying. I am putting my two hands to use.
Because I hear words of strength every day. They are strategically placed across my path. Especially the days when I feel weak and as though I have nothing to contribute, I hear them. Very loudly. Because of that I have persistence. I have will. I have faith.
Because I am blessed to be surrounded by so many who set great examples in my life. Examples of living. And love. Especially love. I know how to offer kind words. And to give help whenever I see the need. Because of that I know how to love and I know that I am loved.
Because I see people. I truly see them. I listen. I hear their stories. Because of that I have an audience. I keep them on my heart when I write. I want nothing more than to show them everything I have. I want nothing more than to see them happy. Because of that I listen.
Because one day… you never know. You never know what it is coming next. Or when this season will end. Or what you will do. Or what you will see. Or who you will be. Or how you will lead. Or how you will love. Because of that I give my all every day. I give honesty. I give truth.
And the truth is I am afraid I am going to lose.
That is one of my biggest fears every time I sit down to write. That I may lose this. That I may lose these words. That one day they will be here, and the next completely gone. It is a silly thought that won’t last long. It is one of those lies we tell ourselves to keep us a little afraid. To keep us a little paralyzed. And as soon as that thought crosses my mind, I smile because I know the truth.
Because I already know I will. Because I already know I can. Just because.
