My office today. Open window to enjoy the #autumn
air, a pillow and leather chair, my laptop (his name is Charlie) and a #plexusslim
I'm happy to be where I am. I'm working for myself while wearing a tank top and doing what I want.
But that doesn't mean it isn't hard sometimes. This post was originally supposed to make you all daydream about having my life, a motivating image. Instead, I'm going to level with you.
I'm right where I want to be, where I felt God led me to be. Good things are happening in my life, great things. I am growing, learning, dreaming, and getting stronger. I'm having to do new things that help me be a better, smarter person.
But I still have to fight that troll known as "Discouragement". I have to tell myself it's okay to rest, that Rome wasn't built in a day. I have to stay motivated while remembering that my identity or "value" as a person isn't tied to reaching specific dollar amounts by a specific day on the calendar. I have goals, and I am working towards them. But if I don't reach those goals as soon as I want, that's okay, because I'll get there.
Whatever your goals, business, obstacle is, just keep swimming. We are all trying to reach something. Remember that your value comes from God and nothing else, so whether you feel like the world's greatest success, or the world's greatest failure, you are still priceless.
Keep moving forward. Take a breath when you need to. Celebrate your victories, and give yourself grace for the low days. And when Discouragement tries to sneak around and whisper in your ear, kick him in the shins. Ain't nobody got time for dat!
We can do this.
What mountain are you climbing? What goals are you trying to reach? What is that troll Discouragement trying to whisper in your ear? Share with me, we can encourage each other.
