I’ve been back for six days now and though I’ve had a few life changing experiences, my old ways are trying to sprout like weeds. But my experiences are now apart of the solid foundation I was desperately trying to build and I can honestly say I feel very excited about my future endeavors. I’m not going to lie, I still have much work to do on that foundation. (For those of you who don’t know, you can’t build a house on sand.) Let’s say that the concrete truck has arived and I’ve got a prime piece of real estate right next door to God. 🙂
But them sneaky weeds or seeds of doubt were trying to knock me off my game and I just can’t have that anymore. While listing to Kanye’s “Power”, (on repeat again) at work, my mind started spittin out ideas on how I can do this and that or create and make this or sell that. But ideas cost money. Atleast mine do and for a second there, I was getting discouraged. But because my battery was super charged over my vacation, I was able to say that I need to learn to be content.
Yes, as humans we want things and the media would try to sell you the sun and moon if they could. But, the bottom line is that I need to be content with what I have now. I need to use my resources to the best of my capabilities and make something beautiful come from it. I could buy a hundred things that would help me get my product line where I’d like it to be. But I could be doing a hundred and one things inorder to start it.
