January 2, 2018
It’s here. 2018. A new year already bursting with new possibilities and opportunities. I don’t know about you but I swear I can FEEL all the great things that will be happening this year.
For the past year, I’ve been feeling a pull. I cannot quite pinpoint where that pull is coming from or what it means but I know it means things are changing. It’s why I launched my website and shifted to helping creatives more. It may be unexplainable but I feel like God is calling me to do more. Not just as a business owner but as a person. The only problem, I have absolutely no idea what that is or what I should do.
As a perfectionist go-getter, it’s hard for me to just be. To know it’s time for change but not know what to change feels like I’m going crazy. I’ve always known what I wanted to do and now that I’ve accomplished all those goals (pursue a photography career, go full time, buy a house, etc.) I don’t know what is next. Which brings me to my word of the year, the word that I hope to completely embrace this year.
I want to give up my need to plan everything. I will always have goals and things I want to improve on but I don’t want to use that to measure my success. I want desperately to surrender my need to have it all “figured out” and trust in God. This year, I’m completely surrendering to Him and His plan. Enough of trying to do it “my way” and seeing how He fits into it all. I’m calling on Him first and asking Him to use me however He sees fit. I’m not asking “why me?” anymore and instead declaring, “Yes, I’m ready!”
Letting my beautiful life pass me by because it didn’t completely fit into MY plan would be a waste. I’m surrendering to my future, my daily life, and my business. I will ask for guidance as I embrace the next steps of my life journey and this time, I’m ready to listen.
