Freedom, Security, Peace, Growth
Have you ever felt frustrated, irritated, disappointed and a whole bunch of other adjectives all at the same time?
Well I have had that unpleasant feeling for too long. And needed to do some investigating as to the source and what needed to be done. It basically revolved around life, insecurities and the dire need for perfectionism.
I had been letting life get in the way of my dreams, desires, passions, goals and so much more.
As for Life: Some things may or may not get better. I’ve been dealt some challenges that were overwhelming, which will be shared in an uplifting way in another post.
When I paused from life, I began to think about what was missing in my life. This is the time of year (originally written in Jan 2017) many create and plan new years resolutions, yet most fail.
I can’t resolve anything until I took an honest look at my life.
When I did, I realized it was “JOY”. My life had become so routine and heavily stressed that I was sinking deeper and deeper into a dark place. Now It was imperative that I focus on me. On my future. What I wanted and needed to do with the years I have remaining.
Surely many can relate to putting family and loved ones first and at the end of the day, all you want to do is put your feet up and rest.
The question is, what happened to joy, how do I find it again. The more I focused on the things I loved – the ideas were like a waterfall, just flowing from my mind. It was wonderful!
Make this a great day and be blessed, Sheila
