Those of you who are artists, writers, poets, musicians, and who live with a big heart know what I mean.
We take things deeper-higher-bigger and it is hard to keep a healthy perspective sometimes. When we love, and a relationship ends, we might not move forward so easily, however logical it is to do that.
Maybe we are leaving a job, moving, letting go of someone...We may find ourselves stuck...a few days, a few months...
I want to encourage you to keep moving toward the life you want, to make the choices that fuel your soul.
I am both sides of the coin, an introverted-extrovert, a writer-loner, occasional people person who loves to conquer something outside my comfort zone, but who retreats to fight another day. I will support you when you take the hill, but I am a thinker and planner.
I need a PLAN or at the very least, a direction, no matter the situation. Seriously.
(Spontaneous people are fun, and I need them in my life, but "spontaneous" is something I do for other people as part of a plan to encourage or help someone feel better. I am laughing, but it is the truth.)
I have had the same three best friends my entire life (Angie, Lib, Tracie), although God has given me two more to make life better Jenny, Jeanna) Then there is love: When I truly love someone, as in romantically, I always love them, even if a hundred years go by. I may not be able to be with them or want to be paired up, but I love them just the same, so change is not something I enjoy without a plan. The problem is that life can't always be planned especially when it involves other people. They may not care for your plan.
I am an enigma, but I think most people are. It is ok not to be perfect or have all your ducks in a row, although that gives me hives a little.
Recently, God sent the perfect person to talk to me and help talk me off the proverbial and figurative bridge after I found myself confused and struggling to survive another life changing event. When I woke up, I was the good me and not the crazy me, so I was thankful again for the words of wisdom.
She told me something she knows I know, but trusted that I needed to hear it loud and clear and without judgment.
She said "Don't give up on the life you want. Make the choices that fuel your soul, but don't give in to go back to a life that is comfortable, just because the life you choose is hard."
Trust the choices you made when you started the journey and don't give up. Persevere.
So that is what I am thinking about this morning.
Don't give up. When you have thought about all that you want and all that you were designed for, keep moving in that direction and don't give up.
You can do it.
Barefoot and back to writing,
