Do you ever unplug from the social media world for a bit, take a step back and realize how great life really is??
The last few weeks I haven’t been blogging nearly as much because quite frankly, life gets in the way sometimes! In my new coaching position I have realized how I need some “me” time and sometimes blogging was getting to the point where I felt I “had” to do it versus “wanting” to do it. So I have decided instead of a daily post, I would post when I felt necessary or when I have missed it. By taking time away from blogging the craziest thing happened!
I was finding that because I wasn’t blogging on a daily basis, I wasn’t taking time to sit down and talk through everything I’m thankful for. I wasn’t spending daily time with God anymore because I was letting life get in the way. I love not being so connected to social media, but I didn’t realize how unplugged I was becoming with God until yesterday morning.
I have a job that I absolutely love, but it is late nights and it does get exhausting. The apartment seems to be a disaster 24/7 now and I hate, and I mean HATE, living in clutter.
I am engaged to an amazing man! But I found out Sunday night that my wedding venue is up for sale and there is talk about it possibly being turned into a parking lot. I haven’t had much luck with my venue coordinator from the very being, but now being a little under a year away from our wedding there aren’t many venue options left in our area.
I’m starting to teach fitness classes at my local gym, something I have wanted to do for so long! But they need me in the aquatic center, so between work and wedding planning I need to fit in getting certified!
I have so many amazing opportunities happening in my life right now, yet I woke up yesterday morning gasping for air because I was so overwhelmed thinking about all that I had to do in the day and not enough time to get it done.
That’s when I realized that I haven’t been putting God first in my life. I have been putting all of these amazing opportunities that He has given me before Him. I haven’t been thanking him every day and I haven’t been taking time to sit and ponder on all that I have and how God will give me enough hours in the day to get it done. Once I realized that, I felt a weight lift off my shoulders.
Friends and family swooped in all day yesterday to help search for venues, God gave me enough time to complete everything at work and I job shadowed my very first aquatic class this morning and it was awesome!!! It’s so crazy how the second we change our attitude and put God first, everything works out!
If you are feeling a huge weight on your shoulder, take time to ask yourself, where am I putting God in my life right now? Leave it to him to lift that weight off your shoulder and let His plan for you unfold. 🙂
God is good all the time, all the time God is good.
