Last night my hubby asked me a question “Are you being challenged?”…
This question really got me thinking. Am I being challenged? Are the people around me challenging me to do more, be more? Or am I “the cream of the crop” in my circle?
To be honest, I haven’t been challenged a lot lately. My “circle” has gotten a lot smaller, so most of the time it’s just me. But I haven’t been pushing myself. To be quite frank…I think I’ve gotten into the “mommy rut”.
The “mommy rut” is where most of my time and energy are focused on my kiddies, their needs, and taking care of our househodd~which is great b/c everything on the homefront is running a lot smoother. But there’s still that small place in me that dreams of more…and I can feel the bite of unfullfillment settling into my very being.
I love to write but lately I haven’t been too inspired. And my dream of being a published author, and a great blogger, have been put on the back burner.
As I write this, I ask myself why? The answer is…fear.
Fear of success. Fear of working hard and pushing past all that is familar. Fear of what people will say b/c I’ve put something that is important to me before anything them or what they deem as important.
But today is a new day! I am up for the challenge of pushing past the familar. I know that this journey for me won’t be easy but it will be worth it.
I want to make my hubby and kids prodd. I want my kiddies to see their mom do something great and live out God’s best daily.
So, it’s time for me to set my plan!
As I go forth in my planning, I pray that you go forth in greatness…to live your best life now! Are you up for the the challenge???
