There are times, when we experience doubt in our minds or get anxiety around the things that we want to see happen. We worry or we may even doubt that those things can come to pass. I was sharing with a friend a few weeks ago about the importance of honoring our journeys and not comparing our lives to others. In this digital world we live in, it is very easy for one to compare your life to someone else. The moment one sees an accomplishment of another person, wondering why you didn't get those accomplishments. This can lead to so much stress and unnecessary anxiety. Those conversations make me appreciate so much of how far I have come with my work with women and girls and I reflect on the key components of my journey that I don't take for granted. The three main things that keep me grounded and focused on my own life are faith, gratitude and grace. I think of these three things especially during the dark times of my life and I do my best to apply them:
Faith: I am slowly learning that faith is the seed that we have to plant in order fer for things to manifest for God's purpose in our lives. There are many times things may seem as if they are taking too long to happen in my work, business or personal life and I use my faith as a christian and pray through my worries. I have learnt to surrender things though this has been a constant struggle in my faith walk.
Gratitude: Having a practice of thanksgiving has changed the way I look at things especially when I am going through a challenging time. I find it so exhilarating when I am able to write down all the things I am thankful for.
Grace: Grace is the covering that keeps us there once we receive those blessings. Grace is unmerited favor that is bestowed upon our lives, it doesn't require anything but simply being children of God.
This month, my message to you is honor your journey, keep the faith, practice gratitude and appreciate the grace upon your life.
