I Dedicate: Strength. Courage. Wisdom.

Happy Monday, lovelies!

For today’s edition of “I Dedicate,” I’m sending this one out not only to my baby, but to all of you as well!

Strength, courage, and wisdom are three things we all need to get through this life. My journey into womanhood has been a tale full of uncertainty, hurt, and vulernability. But as I approach 30, I can truly say that this phase of my journey has also ended in true self-discovery. My journey isn’t complete – as I stated, it’s just a phase that’s come to a close.

With motherhood on the horizon, I know that there’s still so many layers to what makes me, me that I have yet to discover! But, at this point in time, I feel like I’ve found my voice and I’m confident in who I am. I really like…no, love…who I am and what I see when I look in the mirror each morning. I am fearfully and wonderfully made in the eyes of the One who created me!

I can only wish these same things for my daughter. And for you too! So don’t just read the lyrics, feel them, absorb them, and let this be your anthem for today!

Inside my head there lives a dream that I want to see in the sun
Behind my eyes there lives a me that I’ve been hiding for much too long
‘Cause I’ve been, too afraid to let it show
‘Cause I’m scared of the judgment that may follow
Always putting off my living for tomorrow
It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my face
It’s been elusive for so long, but freedom is mine today
I’ve gotta step out on faith, It’s time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

[Chorus:]
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it’s been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me

Behind my pride there lives a me, that knows humility
Inside my voice there is a soul, and in my soul there is a voice
But I’ve been, too afraid to make a choice
‘Cause I’m scared of the things that I might be missing
Running too fast to stop and listen

It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my face
It’s been elusive for so long but freedom is mine today
I’ve gotta step out on faith it’s time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I close my eyes and I think of all the things that I want to see
‘Cause I know, now that I’ve opened up my heart I know that
Anything I want can be, so let it be, so let it be:.

Strength, courage, and wisdom
It’s been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, wisdom
It’s been inside of me all along, everyday I’m praying for:

[Chorus]

Vamp
I found it in me, I found it finally
I’m sure to keep it’ cause I like it, I say thank you
