31 Days of Quotes, Day 31...

Day 31!  YAY!!

I'm not sure that I've ever done anything for 31 days straight, except maybe eat cake.  just kidding, I wish.

Not that I would keep writing every day straight, of course, but writing so often has been incredibly  good for me.  It's also been fun hearing from some of you about how you've read along and enjoyed it!  Thanks so much!

Having a plan and purpose through these past 31 days made me sit down and process thoughts....and question my own understanding of life at times....instead of just hitting the sack and going to sleep.
Granted, maybe if I had a little more sleep, I could actually think straight and not have to process so much.  sigh...oh the circle of life.

anyway, the commitment was good.

...so to end this little journey of quotes tonight, I'm thinking ahead...

"What if I fall?

Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?

~ Erin Hanson




Fear of Failure.

Sometimes for me, it's not only the fear of failure in what I want to do, it's the fear of failure of choosing the right things to do.  I fear not making the right choice in the first place...that's happened enough times.  I fear mis-hearing God's guidance, letting down the ones I love, and wasting time chasing something I wasn't meant to chase.

Maybe if you don't really commit to something, it's not a failure if you don't really do it.

Yet, the commitment in the first place can be what keeps you going!  It's imperative. I don't want to choose something and not commit to it.  Maybe you commit to a trial run??? ha

In thinking of how to move forward after this little series, I have so many hopes, desires and dreams.
And I'm praying to discern God's dreams from my dreams....or to confirm they are one in the same.

I want to keep writing.

and yet, I want to do so much more than that.  How do I fit all my desires into one thing?
My passions are broken up into a handful of means, and it's a daunting task trying to funnel them into one outlet or to just choose one vision to put all my effort into....

photography and capturing moments to remember and keep us inspired,

encouraging, being a transparent light to others,

decorating, yet not for the mere sake of decorating, but for purpose and inspiration in our homes and
repurposing, painting, thrifting and salvaging fun but useful finds....

but I keep coming back to the idea of maybe "you were born for such a time as this."

this sounds kinda silly....but yes....

born into a time of blogging.... that's the cool thing about blogging....it can do it all.

Regardless, I want to choose the one way God has for me right now, even if it's one way with or without different means.  I want to know what He has for me in this season, right now....and I want to run hard for it.  but if my running hard for it means neglecting the most important passion He's called me to - my family, then something's gotta give, and it's not going to be at the sake of my family.  I want to get that right and I want to run hard for them, first and always....and that may require only running a little for something like this.  that's fine with me....and after all, this is all ultimately for them, too.

I pray for God to show me His vision.....show me His dreams for me....and equip me to run for them.  Chase them with the might He gives me.

There's been a handful of times where God has given me very specific visions, I've written them out, and He's amazingly provided them, sometimes through different means that I originally thought....nevertheless, they were some of the greatest things I've ever done.

So, I'm praying and waiting.

and meanwhile, I do know of some things I can be sharing with you!

The container project is underway, as I said before!

This was the first one delivered,  and now there are two!  More details coming soon!

and the laundry room is undergoing some mad organizing skills, well thanks to the crazy great new organizing drawers and cabinets....I Can't. Even. Tell. You. what a perfect fit and wonderful blessing they are.  more on that soon, too!

until then,
