Sooo I recorded my second vlog over the weekend! First that you’ll see, because I never made the first one public. HA! Thank you for bearing with me, it’s only me and my phone. I don’t have the fancy shmancy camera/lighting set up (yet!), nor the technical savvy to edit and all that good stuff. No filters or any of that nifty stuff. Just me and the message I wanted to share. (: Well, sorta. I was so nervous I left out a lot. HA! Hooray for written blogs! The rest is included here!
It’s about what I love to call “giraffe energy”.
After watching T.D. Jakes in this talk (https://youtu.be/IBBZMLPu5cA ) I felt sooo invigorated, motivated, and inspired. So many truths resonate with me. Part of my calling to reach out and help others, is also helping me. I could just run up and hug the man! What a powerful message.
If you’re anything like me, you grew up with a lot of naysayers, bubble bursters, people who would put you down, thinking they were “lighting a fire under you” or motivating you to do more in your life. They didn’t know any better, they were doing the very best they could with what they had, with what they knew.
My goal in sharing this with you is to help you break free from those ties that seem to bind and obstruct from living your dream. It’s taken me until my 40s to finally begin to break free from those. I hope that I can help anyone younger than me do this, so that they can feel comfortable in their own skin, and realize their dreams sooner. I also hope to help anyone my age or older, because dangit, we are WORTH IT! Our dreams are just as valuable and important as anyone’s. It’s never too late to go for your dreams, your passions, your calling in life. No more living down in the grass with the turtles. We are GIRAFFES!!! Stand tall, keep your head held high, and maintain positive energy all around you!
The great news in T.D. Jakes’ talk, is, the naysayers are not “wrong”. They are giving you their truth, from their perspective. Maybe they are trying to keep you safe from all the scary monsters that leaving your comfort zone may appear to bring out. They don’t mean to hurt your feelings, nor discourage you. Don’t take it personally. Love them, thank them for their love and their wish to protect you. What a blessing! However, do not take in the words and allow fear to keep you stuck. You are a giraffe! Your perspective is different. Your perspective is your truth. Hold your head high and walk with dignity on your path to success. Loving others as they are, along the way. Blessing them rather than cursing them is a gift that gives back to you, as well.
My new tradition since the first time I saw this message, is to start babies out with a giraffe-themed gift. Spiritually, I am giving them that “giraffe energy”, so that they begin their life with that unobstructed, free energy that propels them into a life filled with successes, confidence, gratitude. Loving the turtles, but also, loving themselves as the beautiful giraffes that they are. <3 Wishing you love, peace, excellent health, and GIRAFFE ENERGY!

P.S. For some reason, YouTube wants to show a violent video after mine… I hope it doesn’t do that for you! I tried to change the title and tags of mine, but it didn’t remove their “up next” video. I apologize for that, just close YouTube out before that one loads to keep the positive energy flowing! Sending loving energy always!
