It’s July and we are half way through 2019. July also happens to be my birth month in which I recently celebrated my 49th Birthday. As I reflect over my life, I realize that I put many of my to do list goals on the back burner. As a mother of 4 and once married woman, I did this frequently. I have no regrets in the sacrifices made for the people I love because it’s apart of my love language. It’s also what you do when you know things must take precedent, you simply fall back. However, falling back too many times causes delays in achieving the desires and goals that exist on your personal vision board. I decided that it was time to reprioritize me and begin checking off some of those to do items on my list. Unfortunately, the loss of several young lives had to awaken me to what I already knew to be true…”life is short and should be lived to the best of our ability while we are still able” This reawakening ignited me in to action and when the opportunity presented itself to check Paris, France off my to do list; I did it. Paris was beautiful but the real beauty was making the decision to go and act upon it.
For many of us talking ourselves out of acting on the things we desire to do becomes the norm. Have you ever noticed that you are good at telling others that they should enjoy life, take a risk, go for it, do what makes them happy or gives them peace but when it comes to you-fear, guilt, or feelings of doubt consume your thoughts which only delays your wishful desires and dreams. News Flash…That’s not living and it’s not experiencing life in its fullest. If you have been procrastinating or talking yourself out of your to do list goals…I encourage you to make a change and revisit the vision board or the to do list you have tucked away. There is no better time to begin your self love journey than the present. You are your greatest advocate of knowing exactly what makes you happpy.
I encourage you to do some of the things you have always wanted to do as we enter the 2nd half of 2019. You owe it to yourself to start living and enjoying life while you’re able. If your list consist of forgiving someone-forgive them today. If your list is to take the much needed vacation, book your trip today. If you have been holding back sharing your feelings about someone you love or interested in- there is no better time than the present, so tell them today.(Disclaimer…if you share your feelings and the feelings aren’t reciprocated-it’s okay. The objective is to know that you can share your heart and no longer allow fear to hold you captive. If this person feels the same way great, if not the fear is now removed and God can align you with the person He predestined for you). If you have delayed your business dreams-no more delay, today is the day your business plan begins.
Life is precious and it is short. We don’t know the day nor the hour The Good Lord will call us home, therefore commit to checking those to do list items and vision board dreams off your list. God has created so much for you to see, do, explore and experience. You are worthy of the life you dream and you deserve to live, laugh, & love abundantly as much as you can, while you can. Au revoir mon ami.
Until The Next Blog,
Blessings & Love!
