March into Greatness

There is a shadow behind me
The past that hovers and clouds my horizon
Resolutions I made in times past
At the beginning of a new year

There is nothing sweeter than the sounds of spring
The winter is ebbing and the sky is beautiful
The grass slowly changes from the colors of brass to luscious green
Hibernation slowly comes to an end
The time to plant new seeds has come

A time for the greatest beginning
A time to pause and march into the vacuum of greatness
To chase the dreams of my collective destiny
I dive into the abyss of faith
I alight into the vision of a new dawn

Out with the old and in with the new
I change my attire and free myself of the collective weight
My elbows are free to express the enterprise I hold dear
The invention in me screams for a natural birth
The pain might be great but the joy knows no bounds
Ideas freely expressed, naturally conceived

The might within my soul has arisen
I rise to catch the silver lining in my cloud
I have been to the mountain top
I dear not stop, I press unto great things stored
At the corner of the rainbow leading to the pot of gold

I march into the greatness I was created for
I latch unto the highway of my success
The valleys and mountains, failures and gorges stop me not.
I breathe the fresh air of creativity
It digests every doubt or fear stored within
My nucleus explodes into a Pandora of purpose

I spring forth and march into the greatness of my time
The flowers bloom and the scents are beautiful
The butterflies sense what is slowly becoming
The lilies of the valley slowly populate the landscape
The bare branches bring forth the seeds for the new season

My latter shall be greater than my former.
I am a child of destiny, a child of purpose
I have a divine nature and I exhibit my kind
I march into the greatness of time
I march into the greatness of my time

  1. Amen, amen and amen. We will march into all of God’s plans for us. It’s time to strenghten the feeble knees and the weak arms. Time to March. Thank you for this post. God bless you.

As October comes to an end, we should check in on our emotional wellbeing on this #WellnessWednesday

Every month should be #EmotionalWellnessMonth so we can 🔴 and listen to what our bodies are saying.

TWO ❓s for you.
💡Am I in maintenance mode?
💡or is it time for a tune-up?

Please make time for WELLNESS so you are not forced to make time for ILLNESS.

Happy Monday FAM. ❤

Wishing you a week of LIVING AT YOUR FINEST: Body, Mind, & Spirit.

Consider this: The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." - Lao Tzu

My one step this week is to make it a duty to drink more water (less sugary drinks, more water).

The average amount of water to stay hydrated is half of your body weight in pounds, provided there are no contraindications of heart or kidney failure.

What one step are you taking towards your healthy living❓

Share with us so we can hold ourselves accountable. #healthiertogether
