Are You Traveling on the Right Road?

I saw this quote recently and it really challenged me. I’ve been running a lot lately and I’m tired. It’s time I stop and evaluate this road I’m on.

Don’t exhaust yourself running on a path that’s not yours to follow. The road may be great for someone else, but it doesn’t mean it’s right for you.

If you find yourself on the wrong road, GET OFF.

I know starting over can be scary. But, I’d rather you start over than spin your wheels going nowhere.

Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way!

Just Breathe…

Breathe, rest

Some days the best thing you can do is focus on the tasks at hand for that day.

If you are a planner like myself, your natural reaction is to think about what you have to do today, tomorrow, next week and even three months from now. Some days that will result in more stress than peace.

If this is one of those days where you feel stretched to your limit, take a moment to stop and just Breathe.

Stop replaying in your mind the worst thing that could happen. Breathe!

Stop thinking about how everything might fall apart. Breathe!

When chaos calls, don’t answer. Breathe!

Inhale the peace of God and exhale the stress, worries, and cares. Breathe!

At the end of the day, some things are outside of your control.

Control what you can on today, give the rest to God and rest! Breathe!

Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way!

It Could All Be So Simple

Lauryn Hill’s song Ex-Factor starts off by saying “it could all be so simple, but you’d rather make it hard“. The song is referring to a relationship, but I wonder how many other things in our life are simple that we’re making hard.

I remember one time I was hired for a position and based on the interview I had an expectation that I would be doing a specific thing. However, my manager, who did not participate in the hiring process, had me doing something different. I was frustrated and stressed out about it. Several people suggested that I simply talk to my manager, but I would always talk myself out of doing it.

Finally, when I couldn’t take it anymore, I, in much nicer words, asked my manager at what point could I start doing what I expected. Her answer was simple. She said, “starting today”. It was all a simple misunderstanding.

On today, I challenge you to recognize that some things and situations are not as complicated as we’re making it out to be.
