It has been a while since I posted and I have definitely missed blogging. Blogging gives me a peace that I cannot explain. It’s kind of therapeutic for me actually and I plan to do this more often. So I am Barack guys!!I am so excited.
Let me be honest, I have been kind of lost in the motions of life for a while now. Well…adulting happened I guess and the things I loved and the dreams I had for my life took the back seat for a while. With dissatisfaction in my life, came frustration and my jobs and relationships took a big hit. I was no longer excited about life. I know I am not alone here when I say I woke up feeling like I was carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders everyday. Something definitely had to give. I had to make some changes.
I felt deep down that there was more to life than that. Everything in my life was suffering because of how frustrated and depressed I was in my life. Spiritually, I was hurting as well. I prayed and read the bible less and less by the day and going to church became a dreaded chore. I wanted and still want more in my life and I felt God was leading me to make some changes. I had to adjust my sails to where the wind was taking me…to where God was taking me. I had to trust the process and find the peace and direction I so needed in my life.
Sometimes to make good changes in your life, you have to step back from everything and look at things from a different perspective. You have to view your life deeply from the outside to find out where you are now versus what your attributes, personal desires and goals are. That’s exactly what I did. God has been a huge guide in my life. I feel closer to Him than ever. I feel more at peace with where He is taking me. I am finally getting to my old self and I love it. Finally life has meaning and I wake up feeling excited about life again. Although I am not there yet, I look foward to what is ahead of me.
If you are in the same position that I was in, take a step back and really look at your life. You have to answer questions like where are you now, what do you want to become, what are your strengths and weaknesses and how can you get there…in order to find yourself again. Don’t forget to pray and make some time for God every day. He really can speak to you and show you what he wants you to do if you listen. There is a peace that comes from knowing that your life is in God’s hands and that everything will work out for your good. Have the courage to step out of your comfort zone as well. You have make decisions that you would not normally make, take risks that you would rarely take and let God work in your life. I believe that if we do that, me included, we will be on the road to happiness and success in our lives.
This is my truth, my thoughts.
