When you think of winning a battle, you probably think of all the people who who’ve wronged you and all the times you’ve wanted to get even and win every fight you’ve been in. Before you can do that, you need to define what winning and being victorious mean to you. Just as success and lifestyle mean different things to different people, victory means something different for each woman.
Being victorious means understating the fight you’re facing. It means taking stock of what you’re up against and preparing for it accordingly. With the end goal in mind – a happier life for you – learn to pick and choose your battles accordingly. The first victorious fight you should undertake is the fight for forgiveness. Start by forgiving yourself for mistakes and missteps. Own your failures, learn from them, avoid repeating them, cut yourself some slack, and move on. Then, learn to forgive others. When you hold onto anger and unforgiveness, you give others the power to control you even after they’ve moved on.
The next victorious fight you’ll want to undertake is the battle for yourself. Fight for the time you need to create the life you want. Fight for the time you need to restore yourself when you’re overworked. Fight for the time you need to be good to yourself in order to be good to others. Yes! You should fight the good fight – just make sure you’re fighting the good fight for a good life.
What does the good life mean? It’s a life of lived to its fullest on your terms that makes you happy, fulfilled, and adventurous. The most victorious life is a life you love, a life you are proud of, and a life that sets an example for others. It’s a life that is content, satisfying, rewarding, and inspiring.
Living your good life, your dream life begins with ONE brave step. The deepest longing of your heart often points you to the assignment God has given you to fulfill here on earth. When you fight your good fight so that you can walk in your purpose so God's kingdom is made even more evident.
