The courage to stand powerfully in the face of opposition

As life goes on and I get more clear about who I am and what I want, I find it very important that I stand in my courage and strength powerfully in the face of opposition. What I mean by that is that there will always be varying opinions regarding whether or not my decision is a good one. In fact, I can be my own worst enemy. There are times when I know that I am meant to take an action but, out of fear stay where I am.

What I know to be true is that if it is my decision, it is a good one. There is no right or wrong. As long as I do what I call a “head, heart and gut check”, I can move forward with what I see as the next appropriate action. I may get opposition along the way but, in the end, I can always say that I have no regrets and there is peace.

A dear friend of mine recently posted the video from Frozen on Facebook of the song sung by Idina Menzel called “Let it Go”. Two of my favorite parts are:

It’s time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through, no right, no wrong, no rules for me, I’m free

AND

Here I stand, in the light of day, let the storm rage on, the cold never bothered me anyway

What are you still doing out of fear that if you took a courageous stand you could be free of? Or what are you NOT doing that you know you are called to do and you are letting the negative voice or others opinions hold you back?
Can you LET IT GO and move foreword??????

“Let It Go”

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I’m the Queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door

I don’t care
What they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I’m free

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You’ll never see me cry

Here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back,
The past is in the past

Let it go, let it go
And I’ll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone

Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway
