Hey ladies. Okay. Now be honest. How many of you guys have kind of forgotten what your 2021 word was? How many of you guys have been kind of, oops, I totally forgot what my word was and I haven't really been focusing on it. Well, how many of you guys did not choose a 20,21 word? Well, it's not too late today. We're going to talk about what my word was for 2021 and a revelation that I got today, listening to something else. And we're going to go all in on how to become whatever it is in 2021. All right, let's go.

What's up Wholly Made Life™ ladies. How are you guys? Welcome back to this episode. Happy Resurrection. The King has risen and he is our saving grace. So I'm thankful for that. I'm thankful for this Easter season, new beginnings and another opportunity today to become who it is you are intended to be. So actually today, that's what I wanted to talk about was I chose. If you go back to one of the very first episodes, I talked about my word for 2021, and I challenged you to pick your word for 2021. Now the first thing is I want to ask you, did you actually choose a word for 2021? And if it is, have you been reflecting on that every day of the year, every day of your week, every day of your month to become or will become as my word, right? Have you reflected on what that word is and try to strive to meet the expectations of whatever that word was.

Are you doing that every day? If not, I challenge you to go back. Think about what that word was and try to journal it out on why you chose that word to begin with and then put it up on your refrigerator, put it in your car, put it on your mirror, put it as a screen scraper on your phone so that you are reminded every day to follow what it is that word is helping you become, helping you strive for expectations that you're placing for your daily action steps. Just make sure that you are using that word to its fullest. So my word for 2021 was to become, and I was reflecting on that today because I want to think about every day am I actually becoming the parent? I want to be, am I becoming the woman I want to be?

Am I becoming the wife that I want to be? Am I becoming the business woman? I want to be, am I becoming the coach that I want to be? Am I becoming the leader that I want to be? And I think what's important about that. Number one is that I'm always actively becoming. I'm never going to get to the place where I stopped becoming something. Because if you stop growing, if you stop becoming, then you die. Think about it. If a seed is not growing, then it's dead. There's no life in it. So you have to continue to push forward every day. And no matter what goal you get to, as soon as you reach that goal, there's another goal that you should be striving for. There should never be a point in your life, as long as you're breathing. As long as you're alive, that you are stopping your growth growth should be happening every single day.

And it should be happening at a rate that is making an impact in your life and everyone else around you in their lives. Okay? So becoming, and I just thought this was interesting. So I thought about this become is actually a verb. I cannot become without taking action without doing something of a verb. If you guys go back to your English classes in grade school, a verb is an action word. It's an action. So it is impossible to become if you are not taking action or not doing or not being. And I just, for whatever reason today, as I was listening, actually to my pastors podcast called culture keys to leadership podcast, he was talking about growing. And I love that saying from Tony Robbins, if you stop growing, you die. And I think about that because I am a constant avid learner. I am always growing.

I'm always learning. I can never know enough. I can never learn enough. I am always reading. I am always listening to books on audio or I am listening to podcasts. I am always seeking to grow. I'm actively and intention of intentionally growing. So it just hit me when I, and I didn't think about this in this way before. Yes, I thought of, okay, I'm going to choose become because I have so much to become. I have so much to do. I have so much growth to do as a wife, as a mom, as a leader, as a coach as a business woman, I have so much to become. And so I chose that word because I'm always working to become something, become the woman that God has intended me to be, but it just hit me today as I was listening to that, thinking about growth that, wow, the word I chose is a verb.

It's an action word. And it's impossible to become if you are not being and if you are not doing so, the definition of become is to begin to be okay, to begin to be. Another way that become is defined is to come into existence, okay. To come into existence. So I am always striving to come into existence to be existing, who it is. God's called me to be another way to say it, to undergo change or development to undergo change or development. So I am always growing. So I'm always changing and I'm always developing. Okay. And so it is an action verb, an active word, which means that as soon as I hit that development, if I, as soon as I get there, there's still going to be underground undergoing of change. Another word, another way to describe this is to be transformed into, to be transformed, to be changed.

That's active, to develop into, to evolve into, to turn out, to be okay. Convert emerge as pass into alter to. So all of these words, when you think about this, when you, if you are an avid seeker of growth or an avid seeker of becoming something, becoming more, becoming, working towards a goal, then you're always being transformed. You're always being developed. You're always evolving into a new creature. And that's exactly what God's called us to do is to continue to grow. You know, the Bible talks about your mind being transformed. Well, that's an ongoing thing. It's not that God, please transform my mind one time and it's done. That's a constant transformation. I'm continuing to undergo change. I'm continuing to be developed into. I am continue continuing to evolve into the knowledge as I learn and grow in to what it is God's called me to be.

I continue to emerge as a coach emerge as a parent emerge as a, as a wife, right? So I just wanted to encourage you today to number one, always understand that every single day, we have an opportunity to act, to take a step, to grow, to learn, but to do this, you have to be intentional about it. You know, you could go through your day and not quote, unquote, learn anything new. If you're not learning anything new, then how is it that you are changing? Or how is it that your mind is transforming and becoming what it is God's called you to be until we are no longer breathing until we no longer have breath or life in us, we are called to be transformed. We are called to become, to become the woman God's called us to be, that's an ongoing process. So I don't know why that hit me the way it did today.

But I just thought, you know, I want to encourage you to understand that this is not something to be accomplished and checked off our list. This is an ongoing thing. And so it's okay where you are today. It's okay where you were yesterday. As long as you are learning and growing and becoming you're in the process of becoming so no matter where you are today, sister, you know, where no matter where you are today, wife and mom, friend, you are in an opportunity where you can continue to become, it's an active thing. So don't get discouraged. Don't, don't lose hope. Don't feel like you've missed it because you haven't, you're being called to be who it is you are called to be. And it's an active thing you never, ever, ever get lost and, and get so behind that, you're not able to move forward.

You're not able to continue to undergo that change and development. And so I am encouraging you today to become who it is you're called to be and understand that that takes work. It takes time it's in, under you are undergoing that change and development. And as you learn and grow, you will have setbacks. You will have jumped forwards and you will have periods of rest or peace or a stillness, and you are still transforming and learning and growing in that time of stillness and rest, you are still in a place where you can find opportunity to rest and find peace in him find that safety in him. So I just wanted to encourage you today. So don't ever stop. Don't ever worry that you're too far gone. You're not, you're not too far gone. You are exactly where you are supposed to be to continue to be transformed into the wonderful wonder woman of God that he's calling you to be, be encouraged today.

You are exactly where you need to be no matter where that is, because as long as you're still here, as long as you still have the breath of life in you, you have the ability and the responsibility to become, to become who it is that he's calling you to be. So just do just be, and that's all that he asks just to do and just to be, and grow and learn love while you're at it. Love hard. And that's it. Okay. So who's ready to become with me, even if that's not your word, you're still becoming all right. I would love to hear what it is your word is reflect back on what that word is. And just if you, if you need to restart or get a jumpstart again, then just write down what your word is. Write down three things that you can do to really go after what it is that word for 2021 was that you chose and just recall and reflect on why you chose that.

There was a reason why you chose that word. Okay. All right, sisters, I will see you over in the Facebook group of Holy made life. And don't forget guys, make sure if you haven't already, I would love it so much. If you would hop on over to the written review on Apple podcasts and leave me five stars and and put a written review in there, that is the best way that we can share this, this podcast with our friends out there. So thank you so much. Have an awesome day, and I'll see you on the next one.
