“I feel lost.
I feel like I am floating and just getting by.
I feel like I am stuck.
I feel like I am the only one not pursuing my passion
Does God still want to use me?
I don’t know what I am doing…
If this is you…welcome sister!! 😀 Today’s post isn’t too fancy. It isn’t full of pretty dresses and amazing scenery. I wanna chat with you tonight about how you have been feeling overwhelmed. You see, earlier this year I randomly woke up to realize that I was putting so much on myself. I mean..SO MUCH.
I wanted to be a graphic designer, a jewerly maker, a physcologist, a photographer, and the list goes on. I wanted to be all of this…HECK I even wanted to be a health coach at one point. I was all over the place.
I was in DESPERATE search of labels. I was searching high and low for a label becaue everyone else I knew had one.
I despised this question:
“Hey Brittany, what are you doing these days”
“Hey! Brit, what are you doing for work?”
When you have a dream that is placed on your heart, and normal day job is not going to cut it. I know this because I tried it.
I thought, “God, apparently I just need to get a normal job and stop following the feeling that I am meant for more…”
As you can imagine, that didn’t go very well. I was at the job for two weeks. I didn’t even get my paycheck when I was actually working there.
It was so bad, my Dad came up to me and said, “Brit, you are like a Chamelion. You need to just stick with it.”
That was hard because I really didn’t realized that I was the problem. I was taking matters into my own hands. You see, when we search for our own labels we are only scratching the surface on what God has for us. We know what we like, but God knows what’s going to work. I am now doing literally everything I love, while creating my own label.
When we realize that social media is great at labels, we will be able to stop ourselves from always changing hobby to hobby, passion to passion. If you are a woman reading this, I know you probably think you are wonder woman and can juggle ten things at once, but if you are still reading this you aren’t 🙂 and that’s okay. Because just like everyone else, we want to be successful just like the model, just like the fashion blogger, just like the fitness guru, just like the travel junkie. The problem is, we are putting other peoples labels and passions on ourselves when we are actually way too unique to be like anyone else! That is why we keep moving girlfriend!! If we were happy being like everyone else, we would literally not move from passion to passion.
I want this to encourage you tonight to keep going with the specific thing that God has placed on your heart. Don’t add burden after burden, label after label. Seek Him and ask HIM what you are called to do.
When we stick with something even when we really want to pull away and start something new, we could potentially be furthering our joy and success.
4. Living In The Moment
“They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit” – Jeremiah 17:8
