So for far too long I have made excuses about why I should not write a blog despite the fact that I have always felt called to write. I felt like no one would ever read what I had to say or care for that matter. Plus, a blog is supposed to have focus and be geared towards something specific, and the truth is, I don't know which way is up most days.
I definitely have things to write about if I look at my life. It is by no means ordinary or expected. No matter how hard I have tried to plan out the way I wanted it to be, God has always had another plan for me. And His plan has always been better than anything I could think up for myself.
So today I finally decided to quit making excuses for all the reasons that I can't do this. I'm a perfectionist and control freak by fault. Since the birth of my 2nd child and the explosion (for lack of a better word) of our business, I have felt very out of control. Completely lacking peace.
The last few months I have learned to let go of the control that I think I have to hold tightly in my hands and give it over to God. I have found grace, peace, and intention in my everyday life because of that release. There is no day that is close to perfect, but all days are more peace filled. Please note that I did not say peaceful (that's a very different word).
I can't think of a better way to start this off than by reminding myself of all the reasons that I'm going to write for the world to see:
1. I have been told for far too long to do this.
2. I have a story to tell that I don't want to forget.
3. If I plan to write, I have to have more intention, and a little intention never hurt anyone.
4. I know that there is always more...more to learn, more to understand, more to seek.
So until there's more....
