I have a confession to make. The Queen of Excuses has made another appearance and is refusing to leave. So, I’m making some changes.
For the past year or so I have been able to “slide by” with this job. I haven’t treated it like I would a job outside of the home. Time and effort have been given willingly to things that I know in the end will only bring me down. Opportunities have come and gone without so much as a glance up from my phone. Numerous discussions have taken place and plans have been made with very little follow-through on my part.
But, it’s time for all of that to change. I have come way too far in the last 2 years to suddenly change course. I believe that this is something that God wants me to do–something that He has called me to do. Despite the challenges and struggles of this job–I find it very rewarding. Doing what I do has opened my eyes not only to the amazing God I serve but continually reminds me how often I don’t have any bit of this life together and just how often I need to rely on Him. It has forced me to confront areas of weakness and address them despite the fact that I’d rather hide them in the corner and ignore their existence.
However, things are going to change around here–and change for the better.
The past couple of weeks I have realized that I need to get organized–and not in the way that you think. Sure there are physical things like paperwork and mounds of images that need organized but something much more important needs an overhaul. My mind and attitude.
So, what exactly am I doing to change my attitude? I’ve given myself the title of CEO and a job description. I’m working to set hours and plan my days so that more of what needs to be done is done in a day. I’m beginning to pray very diligently about my life and this business. Asking for God to lead me and provide direction and wisdom. I’m starting to really dig deep into my Bible and learning more about God and what He wants me to do.
I don’t usually learn life lessons the easy way. For me, it takes a lot of repetition and a good dose of conviction. But, I thank God that He has reminded me and convicted me and given me His grace to step into this opportunity more fully. I look forward to what He’s going to do in the future.
The adventure of life awaits. Are you ready?
Until next time,
