I am here to call you names.
Most of us are pretty good at calling ourselves names. And unfortunately, those names are often unkind.
Stupid, lazy, fat, worthless…you’ll never change. You’ll never get it right.
Our inner critic is mean and speaks the language of shame and lies. But that voice is fooling me a lot less often these days and I’ve decided to claim some other names.
A couple of weeks ago, we had our first ever Claim It conference at Floris UMC and I had the privilege of being one of the 5 speakers. My message that day was about claiming other names- turning up the volume on God’s voice and turning down the volume on the voice of the Saboteur. As I told the amazing women who attended that day, our strength lies in wisely and intentionally choosing who we allow to name us. And wisely and intentionally choosing the names we call ourselves.
If you would like to hear the 3 names I choose these days, check out this video. One of the names is Brave, but you will have to watch the video to hear the other names.
Which one do you claim for yourself?
Also, fyi, I teach you how to be a superhero… 🙂
