I have my sanity.

I have no drama in my life.
I have healthy friendships.
I have vision.
I have goals.
I have purpose.
I have family.
I have God.
I have myself.
I have everything that I need right now.
We tend to focus on everything that we don’t have. We all have different goals. We want the business. We want the career. We want to lose the Weight. We want everything to be perfect . We want the career, house, marriage and children along with a life of peace. That shouldn’t be hard right? Oh, but it is . They make it look so easy when we are kids, don’t they?
So many things come into play when we talk about what success looks like to us.
What does success look like to you?
when I look at my life , I know I’m not where I want to be. But, I know that I’m at peace. I get super frustrated at times because I don’t want to fail. I don’t want to go backwards. I want to succeed . I want to win so bad that I want to do everything all at once , which then leads to me feeling overwhelmed.
I have to BREATHE. I have to take things one step at a time. Plan. Execute.
Comparison steals your joy. Social media makes me feel like I have to speed up and catch up. Social media makes me feel like I have to do everything NOW. The reality of it all is that you can’t do everything RIGHT NOW. You can do one thing now. Once you conquer that, then you can conquer something else.
I want to succeed. I also want to have peace. I only want God’s will for my life. Not my own selfish desires. Your desires can be selfish if you’re doing them to prove yourself to other people. What did God specifically create YOU for?
Breathe. You’re exactly where you need to be. We get so focused on getting to the end that we don’t appreciate the middle. Appreciate the sadness, the frustration, the meltdowns, the ugly cries. This is where we are made.
After all, ALL THINGS WORK OUT FOR OUR GOOD.
