go to the giraffe - perspective
Ever feel like you’ve lost your way? Like, you have no idea what to do or say or be or how to move forward from here? That’s kinda me right now. I have tried for so long to please others and to hear everyone out that I have forgotten what I’m here to say, what I’m here to do; I’ve forgotten my path. I have acted a fool and everything has gotten a little jumbled. I know the life I want because I’ve tasted it before. So, how do I get there?
Go to the giraffe [as Proverbs would say if it had more chapters] - the giraffe is such a great representative of what it looks like to have perspective. They’re a little awkward, pretty tall, they have curves, they have edges. To me, this shows us the path to a higher perspective: accept your flaws, love yourself in all your awkwardness and just let yourself grow up into who you are. When you accept the flaws, you can also accept the goods.
Sometimes you just have to turn off what others are saying - about you, about the world, about the future - and press in to hear what the creator of you and the world is saying instead. So, here’s to tuning in and accepting your awkwardness, owning your fails and embracing what the Lord is saying about it all right now.
