I woke up this morning in a bit of a funk and it’s making writing a little difficult…But do not fear! You’ll have something new to read soon. I don’t know where this is going to go I just know that we’ll end up there eventually–you may want to get comfortable… 😉
This year has started out fairly well considering that we started it on the couch sick. We’ve gotten a lot done and several little projects started. We’ve got big plans for this year and I’m excited to see what the rest of this year brings. I’ve been pleased with the work that I’ve accomplished so far this year and see a few areas I can improve in as the year progresses. I’ve learned to give myself grace and mix things up a little as necessary.
One of the things that has stuck out to me so far this year is that change takes time. It may feel like you’re in a rut doing the same five things day after day not making any progress; but one of things that I’m noticing is that sometimes the mundane things in life can be a growing experience-albeit slow.
It’s in doing the same things everyday that we can see some of the little areas in life that need improvement. We have the opportunity to make teeny-tiny changes that once added together will create one big change.
Change and making our lives better isn’t always about making big goals or resolutions that we will never follow through with. Often times the biggest changes start with a tiny step in the right direction. Putting one foot in front of the other and taking one step forward followed by taking three or four (sometimes a lot more than that) backwards.
Change isn’t always something you can check mark off of a to-do list. Sometimes change is a realization. It’s realizing that although you set a goal to keep the kitchen clean everyday this month you realize that some days a friend may have just needed to talk and you were there to listen to them.
Making changes in our lives isn’t something that happens quickly. It’s something that takes time. Don’t be discouraged if the changes aren’t happening as soon as you’d like. Remember that you aren’t where you want to be, but you’re also not where you’re going to be. You are a work in progress. God’s masterpiece.
Until next time,
