#Realtalk: You can’t get rich if you’re being right about how you’ve been wronged—about
how it “should” or “shouldn’t” be. Your money can’t move like that. God cannot move in
an unclean temple.
The same goes for your relationships.
I’m about to get personal. Walk with me?
I’ve recently realized that I want to make space for my father.
I don’t know him. I’ve never met him. But he fought for my life before I was even born.
So if I make the space for him, maybe he’ll show up. Stranger things have happened, you know.
Maybe if I make room for him, he would like me. Maybe he would be proud of me.
Maybe he would see the best of himself in me.
I don’t know, but I AM sure that if I DON’T make room—the energetic space for him—I’ll
So, how will I do that?
It’s simple, really:
When you release what you think you have to hold on to, you create a space that can be filled
with something new.
Now to be clear, I’m not saying it’s easy. No.
I mean, I wonder why my dad would save me, but then leave. That’s fair, right? I question that.
But I also have a choice.
I can be mad at him for keeping me alive but leaving me. Or I can try and appreciate that I don’t know why he left.
Maybe he went away because he was embarrassed. Maybe he thought he couldn’t be the dad I deserved. Maybe he left because momma didn’t want him to see me. Maybe he got shot. Or maybe, he didn’t want me to end up living his life.
My point—I don’t know why he went away. I just don’t.
But instead of being quick to villainize him, I can love him for saving me. And I can believe that he had a reason for his choice.
I can choose to make the space for him—so if he ever decides he’s ready, I have a place for him.
I’ll say it again and again—the key to SO many things in this life (including your money!) is healing.
Comment below so we can bear witness: what space do you wish to create?
