It's the second day of October and I'm sitting here wondering how and why time is moving so fast. I feel like I was just bringing in 2017 and visualizing what I wanted the next 365 days to hold. I set lofty goals and I always try to start out on the right page to get my momentum going.
October is usually that month where I come to grips with the year coming to an end. I revisit my hopes, visions, and my progress that has been made or pushed to my "do later" list. I've always been very aware of my ability to connect with others on a deeper level and my own emotions. I'm keenly sensitive to others around me and my own feelings when they begin to bubble up.
You may have noticed but I haven't been writing as much. It's not because I don't enjoy this space but it's because I've been uninspired. I write all of my articles on demand which means all my content is unique to how I'm feeling in that moment. I find inspiration in the smallest of details and I want to continue providing words that meet my own personal standard.
Just as the seasons change; people do as well. I can't tell where but I know my life is shifting in different directions. I've been experiencing a certain level of discomfort for a while now and I know it's God's way of shaking me up. It's God's way of reminding me not to get too comfortable. It's God's way of reminding me that I still have work to do. It's God's way of reminding me to realign what I'm doing to match my goals. I'm shedding the old in order to make room for the new.
While growth is needed and welcomed, it doesn't always feel good. Personally, growth sometimes feels forced but this is only because it's stretching me out of my normal. I try to fight it at times but I'm letting God and the universe do it's thing with me and have their way. You can't already have your plans written out for 2018 if you're not focusing on what you have left in 2017.
I don't know what your growth cycle looks like but embrace it. I encourage you to always make your continued growth a priority in your life. I want to encourage you to take the punches and let them benefit you in the long run. My writing may not be as frequent for a while or maybe it will be...who knows. As mentioned, I owe this blog and myself the ability to always write impactful pieces and I can't do that when I'm unbalanced.
Love and light!
