What a difference a year can make! Trying new things, seeing what works and what doesn’t, listening to my heart for direction, and more.
The biggest lesson learned is that change for me is tough, especially when it involves letting go of something I like to make room for something I love.
My ego doesn’t want to hear that I have limitations and I must make choices. I thought I could do it all; but when I wasn’t happy with the results I was getting, I had to take a deeper look at how I was spending my time and why. I found some things I was doing out of habit and because I didn’t want to upset my status quo. I didn’t want the stress of change!
But our bodies know the truth. When I examined my enthusiasm and satisfaction levels (or lack of), I could see that I had some re-evaluating to do.
I have loved sharing our marriage book and hearing how people have enjoyed it and how they refer back to it occasionally. That makes it all worthwhile. I have enjoyed my direct selling career and I love writing about it and encouraging others to give it more than just a try.
So I am letting go of being a consultant/leader with a particular direct selling company in favor of encouraging others to build and live their dreams with the company of their choice. I will do that through writing, speaking and consulting.
I am asking for your prayers as I listen for God’s direction in my life. I want to serve Him however He chooses. I am praying for “ears to hear”.
Is there something you like which is in the way of something you love? Give it some prayerful thought. This is what healthy personal growth is about.
