Oh man do I have a lot to say about this topic. I’ve learned a lot the past few days. I realize that a lot of the things in my life I’m not happy with boil down to the choices I make. Well the beauty in that is, I can change a lot of those things by simply making better choices.
I have a lot more to say, however, I’m making the choice to be consistent in posting once a week and I’m also making a choice to go to bed on time. So I will post more about this topic later this week. To Be Continued…
My encouragement today is start making choices that will get you the closer to the results you desire <3
Okay back to choices. I don’t know, but I’m tired of a few things in my life, and I know if I made better choices than I would finally make those changes I would like to see. A new year is only a few months around the corner, and I would truly hate to bring in the new year with the same old issues that I’ve been trying to change for several years. 1. Self-Care 2. Courage to start this Youtube Channel 3. Better organization and cleanliness with my surroundings 4. Resubmitting our Pitch to Nick Jr. 5. Having an official book launch.
The self-care area is the biggest one. It’s like I could make the choice and follow a schedule, drink more water, exercise, eat healthier, do something for me, but for some reason I choose to do the exact opposite of what I truly want to do. It reminds me of the verse from Paul, In Romans 7:15 “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.” Maybe it’s not as easy as just making a choice to do better, maybe it is. All I know is that my energy gets really low, and that I’ve gained close to 30 pounds the past few months. I’ve been wearing tights, and big dresses, so it hides well. However, one person I can’t hide from is me. I’ve been making bad choices with my eating, which I believe could be one reason why my energy has been extremely low. However, eating junk food can be comforting and that’s a sad truth. All of these issues that I struggle with are not the end of the world type of issues. These are all things that I could actually CHANGE if I decided to make better choices. When things get like this, and I start feeling stuck, then I normally tune out so I can tune in. For me that means deactivating my personal social media accounts so I don’t get distracted, and can focus on the areas I need to change.
The YouTube channel for the Peacebe readings, I see clear in my head, but it’s making that a reality that I just need to do, and stop putting off. A lot of these issues would be solved if I was disciplined enough to stick to a schedule. I’ve written down the schedule, typed up the schedule, posted the schedule, prayed over the schedule, but I won’t ever follow the schedule if I keep choosing to not follow the schedule. You see somethings in life aren’t as complicated as we make it. The truth is some areas in our life are the way they are because of the choices we make. I can’t sit here and get mad at God for the things I’ve chosen to do or not do. Ultimately we have free will, and my prayer is that God gives me the strength to make better choices so I can live the life that I’m meant to live. My prayer is the same for you as well. What things in your life are you tired of struggling with? What are some bad habits or addictions you do not want to bring into 2020? Whatever it is for you, I pray that we can decide to make better choices to live out the life we were called to live. I realized that will require discipline and consistency. Hopefully, this will be a blessing to someone, somehow <3 Hopefully, this little post can help me make better choices, and do what needs to be done to start living the life I was meant to live.
