My Five Minute Friday on: Fight
I am so stubborn.
I don't like people telling me what to do and I like even less being told what I should do.
It's a fight in me that puts the people pleaser and the rebel in me at odds.
But I've been growing. And noticing.
When I feel the urge to cross my arms and stomp my foot in defiance I pause. Because the fight against closes doors. It keeps me locked in a cage with my own thoughts and my own ideas of how things need to be.
My heart fights against obey.
But there is freedom on the other side — when I oblige, not necessarily because I want to, but because it feels right.
My obedience breaks through my fears and I stop worrying about being right or doing it my way.
If there are two sides to every story why can't I give up my side?
Giving up can be rewarding, too.
Letting go of rebellion and mini-tantrums and stubbornness to allow myself to be open to more.
The more I could never see or experience if I remained closed off in a fighting stance.
