For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
I have often placed my dream in a box. A big square box. Things must have always been in a certain sort of perfection. By ‘perfection’, I don’t mean unwavering belief and drive to get what I want to make of my life. I meant that I would never be allowed to let my ‘image of professionalism’ teeter on the edge. But I was taught a very valuable lesson recently.
You can maintain a posture of dignity and success while actually having fun. Shocking, right?! Well, at least it was for me. It never crossed my mind that letting my hair down, wearing fuchsia flower print dresses, and cheering loudly could actually coincide with a very goal-orientated business woman. But it seems I have found a balance.
Be bold. Be brilliant. Be professional. Have posture.
Don’t settle for anything less than what your dream demands. Keep moving forward.
