Today is a great day to Make It Happen. Making It Happen is our daily work to accomplish the goals, tasks and dreams that we have for ourselves with the purpose of becoming the best version of ourselves.
Well, sometimes I just don’t feel like Making It Happen. Sometimes, being a super independent happily single-mom is not my ideal role. Sometimes I just want to sit in the passenger seat in the car of life, take my shoes off, recline my seat and fall asleep with my mouth wide open with an extreme comfort and trust in the driver. There are minutes, hours and sometimes days that I just don’t want to be responsible for everyone and everything in my life.
What I have come to learn is that even during these times, I am still Making It Happen. Sometimes, I need to allow myself to take the “S” off my chest, acknowledge that there are some things that not even a Superwoman can control all the time and that my feelings about not wanting to save the world everyday are valid. I have learned to allow myself this time to feel what I am feeling but honestly, I don’t allow myself to feel sorry for myself so that I don’t lose sight of the big picture.
The big picture is that Making It Happen is my daily work to be my best me. I am not my best me when I feel sorry for myself or my current circumstances. I am my best me when I follow my 5 steps back to my Big Picture. Those steps are to Acknowledge, Retreat, Pray, Release and Repeat:
In your times of not wanting to Make It Happen, what steps do you take to get back to your Big Picture? If you have taken your steps and you still aren’t there, today might be a good day to try new steps. But never ever give up or let anything keep you from your Big Picture and from being amazing on purpose.
My goal is to take the time to focus on another "ROSE" in need and seek ways to bless, support and encourage her through her current challenges.
