Whenever you find something that you’re passionate about, something you’re good at, something that lights your fire and gets you out of bed in the morning, you will also find criticism, copy cats, and haters. Someone will say that you spend too much time talking about, pursuing, practicing your passion. Someone else will lurk in the shadows, criticizing you WHILE collecting your discards. People you THOUGHT might support you may end up in these categories. Don’t sweat these people, their comments, their negativity, even their counterfeited products. They’re a part of the process and the journey to your purpose and your greatness. People might have said that Misty Copeland spent too much time at the barre, that Michael Jordan spent too much time on the court, that Toni Morrison spent too much time writing stories, that Leontyne Price spent too much time singing. Shoot! People said Jesus spent too much time (at the wrong time) healing folks! But guess what? They were/are all moving in passion and purpose. When you discover something that gets your passions going, work that thang and rock it til the wheels fall off! Your passions move you closer to your ultimate purpose on this planet. They move you closer to the realm of influence that is yours. They move you closer to the hearts and minds and lives you’re supposed to touch. And when you encounter the naysayers and the haters and even the copy cats, smile at them knowing that they’re right where they belong…behind you. For you see, your forward motion gives them something to do! And we all need to stay employed, right?

…You fell in love with the potential, putting your heart on the line to be broken because the reality wasn’t nearly as great as the potential. You took scraps while demanding more with your mouth but continuing to take scraps. They learned that scraps were ok because you constantly accepted them. You enabled their dysfunction by comforting it. You gave it a place to live. And now you must be gentle; with them and yourself. You must be gentle because you allowed it; the bad behavior and the substandard treatment. You must be gentle but you must also uphold the new standard. It’s not really new but it’s the first time that you’re really realizing that you haven’t upheld it. You accepted less than what you deserved because the words were nice. Be gentle with yourself, be gentle with them, but be firm. Uphold the standard. This fight is not over but you’re fighting FROM victory. Whatever it’s meant to be, it will be. Leave that in God’s hands. The lesson: keep your head high and from this moment, accept nothing less than the treatment you want and deserve. Speak up, handle things in love, appropriately. God is with you. Honor Him and honor yourself.
