"Potential isn't something to find. It's already inside. Possibilities aren't just in dreams. It takes faith to believe."-Julie Barbera
NEW BOOK REVEALS THE GEMS IN YOUR LIFE: Cracked Mirror, Clear Reflection inspires dreams despite imperfection.
"And faith gave me the courage to believe that my vision would turn into more than just a dream."-Julie Barbera
Perhaps something needs to change inside to make this your year of new beginnings. Reflecting on the tree, it has to make the best of its circumstances. While it goes through seasons, change may not be visible to others. Over the years, it builds strength to stand as it grows taller and establishes deeper roots. The next time you’re thinking about making a quick move, think of the tree. Small, gradual changes may need to take place for real transformation to occur. Personal development may not always be evident to others. Maybe, just maybe, you need to grow where you’re planted. As you build a strong core, growth will occur naturally. And you’ll find the courage to branch out and embrace new beginnings.
Gifts and talents that come naturally to you may seem too simple. This may cause you to assume that others experience the same ease. In turn, you may view them as insignificant. While they may be effortless for you, this doesn’t make them unimportant. In fact, they're called gifts because they've been given to you by grace. It isn’t your role to determine their value. It’s your responsibility to take what you’ve been given and make the most of it. Treasures are right before our eyes, yet many miss gems searching for pearls at the bottom of the sea. Potential isn’t something to find. It’s already inside. Possibilities aren’t just in dreams. It takes faith to believe.
