In celebration of #NationalSimplifyYourLifeWeek coming to a close - something has been weighing on me lately. I've always been one to have many irons in the fire. The busy, the different... it has always kept me motivated. It was exciting working on a film one day, performing in concert the next night and then having a span of days to work on a novel.
But as I grow, as a career woman, as a wife and as a future hopeful mother... I'm realizing the simplification is a much needed part of life. Of a balanced, God-led life.
All my life I've been a Jack of All Trades. But those of us that are, does that make us a master of none?
I always enjoyed exceeding at all that I do, but as I fall into new passions, as God opens new doors, He's shown me as I lean into Him more, that He can use some of them to work fluidly together.
Something I never experienced, but always so badly tried to, when I was trying to do it all on my own.
And that's exactly what I've been working on as of late. Spending quiet moments with my Father, praying on my purpose and I'm seeing how certain things He's brought me to start to cohesively exist while other passions fade away.
I've learned that sometimes we have talents or experiences that we hone and use for a period of time to strengthen us, to teach us or equip us for doors that will open later. Doors that we never expected we'd ever be standing in front of.
That's the beautiful journey of life. New places, new faces. New dreams, new goals. Ever changing. Ever growing.
Remember to always check in with you. Reevaluate your goals. Are they serving God? Are you joyful in your work? If the answer is no, start with small changes that will infuse these things into your routine.
How have you simplified your life this year? Now that we are halfway through 2015, what goals do you hope to accomplish by December?
