Good morning! Can’t believe that I’m saying that. I’ve never written a post AND actually posted it in the MORNING! I don’t think y’all understand how important this is for me! No worries if you don’t, I don’t think any sane person would. Lol!
Well here are 2 reasons why I’m rejoicing today:
- It’s 5:18am! Yep, you read that right, it’s 5:18AM and I’m up! I have a 2 month old and 2 other very small children who could wake up at any moment and make their way to my bed. But I’m not letting that stop me…
- It’s Sunday, March 12th, aka the worst day of the year lol, bka (best known as) Daylight Saving Time and you guessed it…I lost an hour! A WHOLE precious hour of MUCH needed sleep! But I’m not letting that stop me…
So if you all know me, you know that I have grand plans, tons of goals, and lots of patience with myself about achieving them. That very same “patience” has allowed me to make so many excuses for myself along my journey and it’s almost a slap in God’s face for not obeying what he’s called me to do.
Yes, I’m a great mother and wife, or so I think 🙂 I go out of my way for my family, friends, and other people, but it’s time to start going out of my way for MYSELF! If you’re reading this as a new mom, wife, or someone who is transitioning from one phase of life to the next, read with caution! I don’t want to make you feel any worse than you probably already do about not being able to handle all of the items on your plate. It’s ok, take the time that you need to get adjusted.
But for those of us who hear that voice telling us to do this and that, or whose heads feel like they’re exploding with ideas, it’s time to RISE UP (you can tell that I’m from Atlanta huh? Lol). Seriously though, it’s time to step out on faith and just do it! Nothing will ever be perfect! That’s what having faith is all about and I know this from LOTS of personal experience.
Ok, now it’s 5:44am and the sleep is starting to hit me! I don’t know if this is a test of my strength or a sign from God to take my behind to sleep. Either way I did what I set out to do and got this post done :-).
I hope it encouraged you to stop dreaming and to start DOING! Speaking of dreams… I think I might indulge in a little of that, literally! Goodnig…I mean, morning!
Chow for now!
