Give Yourself Time

Probably should’ve saved this for tomorrow, but as you can see, that’s not going to happen. Wanted to get it out since it’s fresh in my mind, and because I’m currently in the moment.

I just reviewed and rewrote my longterm goals. Funny thing is, I’m actually on track. Honestly, I don’t feel like it, but I am. Everything I wrote down that I wanted to achieve, I am currently working towards or have plans to do. Now, I will say that most of what I’m doing or have done over the past few years look nothing like I imagined. However, it’s exactly what I was suppose to be doing and am doing to get where I’m going. The things I believed were a waste of time really weren’t. They were lessons and stepping stones.

Note to self – Give yourself time, Shaun. It’s happening, just not happening as fast as you would like.

Okay.. no more random ramblings for the rest of the month. Smile. Just wanted to provide an update.

Enjoy your weekend!♥️

Just Thinking and Felt Like Writing

Today’s my baby girl’s birthday so I’m not planning to post a new Shaun’s Daily Inspiration quote. I’ll just recycle one.

Yesterday, I decided to take the day off since I didn’t do it Wednesday. I cleaned, washed clothes and caught up on what’s been happening in everyone’s lives on social media. Honestly, I didn’t miss much. However, I did miss a few birthdays. Also, I saw two posts that made me think about my life and where it’s headed. You know, where I’m going with the things I’m currently doing and what I truly want to accomplish before I leave this earth?

The first was a reel shared by Dr. Cheryl Wood. Her message was to trust the process. She listed several steps to take while going through the process, and there were two that resonated with me – 1) Revisit your big WHY and 2) Write your goals on paper AGAIN. That set everything into motion. Then, Tyler Perry made a post about how he always looks at the big picture and his long term goal, and anything that doesn’t serve it he doesn’t do. So two messages had me really thinking about where I’m headed, or what I should be focused on.

Before the day was over, I did revisit goals that I wrote at the beginning of last year, but they didn’t really reflect my WHY or longterm goal. So today, I’m going to revisit my longterm goal, my dream, my WHY, and make sure I’m doing what’s needed to achieve it.

OAN: I cannot believe my baby girl will be 30 in two years. Like, where did the time go?! I mean, I still feel like I’m 21. Y’all, life is so weird and I love it!

As always, thanks for reading my ramblings. Listen, keep following my world as I create my world. Like you, I really don’t know where life is going to take me but I do know it will be interesting. Got receipts (thousands of journal entries) to prove it. Smile

Balance

Our life needs balance. There is no way we can truly live our best lives without it.

Yesterday, a friend of mine shared her personal journey with being self-disciplined. How at one point she was so disciplined that it became unhealthy. If you read either of yesterday’s blogs, that’s exactly what was happening with me. Now, I wasn’t as disciplined as her, but I was on my way there. For the longest, I have been trying to force myself to stay focused on my work by eliminating “distractions.” However, all I was doing was making myself sick. I cannot eliminate things from my life that actually bring we joy. I just can’t. So I have to find a way to balance it all.

Y’all have a blessed day.♥️ ~ Shaun

How God Works

Wanted to provide an update to this morning’s blog. This is how God usually works in my life.

So, after showering and getting dressed, and working – Yes… haven’t stopped working since I woke up, I promise to stop soon – I watched a YouTube video by Sarah Jakes Roberts, Hey You, Process.

This is what I mean by, “How God Works.” This particular video was shared over a year ago; however, it was the first video when I opened YouTube. What I know about God, no matter what the title or who made the video, when I’m in need, the very first video is for ME. I know it sounds crazy but this is how things work in my life. If it’s not a video, it’s a message, song or something that’s exactly what I need. Well… this particular video was EXACTLY what I needed. She opened with, “We need to acknowledge that we need to take off our cape from time to time.” Listen, THIS is why I love God. THIS is why I always say that I love the way He loves me. Tears

Y’all, I am so blessed.

Wednesday Writings

A few moments ago, I liked a tweet that said, “In this very moment, my life is perfect.”

Hmmm…

In this very moment, my life is muddled.

Yep..

Right now.

In this very moment.

Muddled.

It’s kind of difficult to explain. I feel somewhat detached and alienated from the world. I can hear people saying, “Hush, don’t tell anyone how you really feel. Keep that to yourself. You’ll get over it.” And I will get over it. I always do. However, in this very moment, this is my life and this is how I feel. Honestly, I’m not even sure how I got to this point. My goal was to block out distractions and focus on my business; but it seems like the more I do, the more I feel alone.

Today is my designated wellness day. I believe I need to take it. No work.

Why did my heart just drop when I wrote “no work”? It’s like I cannot afford not to do anything. Ugh!

But, yes, today I just need to be. Wish I could go on a picnic or to the beach. I need to be one with nature. I need to really connect with God, and I can’t do it from where I am. Plus, today it’s too rainy and too cold to be outside. Sigh

Anyhoo..

I’ll talk to y’all tomorrow. I promise it will be something uplifting. Enjoy your day.♥️
