Small

March 3rd, 2011

Hello and welcome to The Thursday Blog, or as it is commonly known in Texas as: “de thuurdssdee beeeog” which no one really knows what that means because who can really understand anything people from Texas say.

I think I have just made some powerful enemies. Oh well, all in the name of fun.

Let’s jump into today’s episode called:

Small

I have and I will probably will always be considered to be small. I am not tiny but 5 foot 6 is nowhere near a giant unless I am standing next to someone. In fact anyone looks like a giant when I stand next to them. Not only have I always been small in height, I have also been small in size. When I started high school at the age of 13, I weighted 55kg (121 pounds). When I finished high school at the age of 18 i weighted 55kg. Yes we all know I balloon later on in life but I am past that and I am now back to where I was before. Small.

It doesn’t make sense. I have two brothers that are huge. Seriously they are big boys and they have always possessed something I have never had. Not confidence – I found that later in life; not wit – though I was shy as a child I was still comically brilliant (even though nobody heard me); not even perfect grammar skills – I have always been a good speeler. But the one thing they had were muscles!!! I on the other hand was small.

Smallness and I have been living in co-existence for all my life. I used to wish I was taller, stronger, faster, bigger in every way but now I have come to accept my place. I love the way I am built and I wouldn’t change a thing (except for the muscles – I have some coming on back-order). One thing I will not accept however is the type of smallness that I found everywhere when growing up and is more restrictive than any type of small there is. It is being small of thought.

When you think of the future, what do you see?

I may be small in statue but my mind is a giant. No matter what the thought, I think big. When I exercise I don’t think about me being able to run around the block, but I see myself fit, trim, a work of art and in perfect health. When I write creatively, I don’t imagine my work being seen by a few friends I have but I can see my ministry impacting millions right around the world, and it inspiring people to tap into their unused creativity. When I kiss my Little Princess goodnight and lay her down to sleep I don’t hope that when she is grown-up she will still talk to me, but I see a beautiful young woman who is confident, full of joy and life, who loves her God and her family and will always have a soft spot for her Daddy.

There are a lot of things in life that are small and no matter how much you try you can’t change it. Your thoughts, beautiful by design can change and they will over time. All you need to do is dare to start thinking big and give it a try. You are well on your way to becoming an unstoppable force of life that people want to be around.

Have Fun.
