Day 1 ~ 3 Day Quote Challenge

I am so blessed and honored by those that read and follow my blog and the encouraging comments they have sent me! Today I was nominated to participate in the “3 Day Quote Challenge” by Freedom and look forward to the opportunity to share a few of my favorites with all of you. Please be sure to visit Freedom’s blog, Falling in LOVE with Freedom, for more encouragement!

The first time I heard this quote, I was attending a Joyce Myers conference. It hit me square between the eyes!

Too often we hang on to “horses” that are so toxic and unhealthy. We, let me rephrase that…I held on out of fear. It was a fear that I couldn’t even rationalize. I don’t even know that it was a conscious decision, I just did. I look back and understand now how fear controlled so much of what I did and didn’t do. I knew my toxic relationship was dead. I knew I was being used. I knew it was sick and brought nothing to my life but pain, anger, sadness and shame.

I don’t know why this quote affected my like it did but I felt like it was giving me permission to let go. Sometimes, something so simple as a quote, picture, smile…etc., gives us the courage to take the next step or more importantly, for me, a step in a different direction.

  1. First of all can I just say….I went to my first Joyce Meyer conference this past March and WOW! I love her!
    I think I’ve read somewhere before that alot of times we don’t let go easily because it’s been the “devil we know” and we learn to live with the dysfunction because the unknown is scarier than just staying put.
    Once we do learn to let go is when we are free!
    Looking forward to more of your posts, Terri! 🙂
