Keep moving forward

It’s not easy moving from a familiar comfortable place, setting,relationship or circumstance to something NEW. Never mind you may be unhappy, unfulfilled or unrecognized in that current situation, but hey you are use to it, its familiar this is what you know. Your mind swirls around with ‘what if ?’ situations….what if things get worse?, what if  you can’t hack it ?,or #bitingnails what if you are not good enough?….eeeks!. and believe me we can come up with many more head spinning scenarios.

rules

Well over a year ago after months of praying and talking I kicked those what ifs to the curb and resigned my job in financial management (a job i started at the bottom to get to where I was) in early 2015 to do something ……NEW …..squeal!!. I was finally taking action.

I started off blissfully excited, full of hope at all the possibilities that lay ahead……after the first few months, I had many nights of self doubt, nights spent crying and wondering if i had made a mistake, ‘how could I have though ?’ I questioned myself, I felt the passion in my core, why wasn’t I doing great. I still wasn’t ready to give up and with my gladiators cheering me on with prayer and perseverance I pressed on. As I write this post close to the end of 2016 and one full year at my new career, I am happy to report my bad spell was followed by some amazing results which had me smiling Sooo wide my face hurt…my journey isn’t over alas, it has just begun and i know it won’t be all smooth, but i am learning to trust God and focus on my destination not the times spent passing through the valley.

The journey goes on

So we are halfway through the year…….Already ?!!…. I can hardly believe it.  Time for me to review all the plans and goals that where set for 2016. I have achieved some ……yet others find me terribly off track. Not to mention all the unforseen roadblocks, despair, tears, sweat, doubt, and restless nights thrown in the mix. Did i mention that new career I am working at that’s not quite working with my timeline?, hmmm….don’t ask……..sounds like high drama right?

reminder

I have discovered much to my dismay that I am not a patient person, and that much like the children of Israel on their way from Egypt ,….how quickly I too forget Gods goodness and blessings when I feel things are going wrong for too long. Yes, I have those days when I think he is my genie and i should get my wishes (prayers) answered straight away. I am learning though to be thankful for my small miracles, and to keep faithful and not lose my joy….yup lots of learning going on around here, slowly but surely.

I am making a conscious decision to get up and go, stay the course and not be afraid to maybe make some minor adjustments along the way.

work in progress

So how is your year going so far ?  I hope great, if not and its sort of like mine, don’t worry better days are ahead, in the meantime enjoy the journey !.
